Yes, just set the receive mode to "manual" the machine will then just ring when a fax is incoming and not print. It may become annoying after a while because the sending machine will try to send numerous times. You can get around this by setting the ring volume to mute.

Our Brother intellifax 2800 won't receive some faxes


Not entirely positive but it looks like you need to enable "polling" on your machine. I think it's a way to ensure they don't send out personal medical info to a wrong number by mistake. If polling is enabled, they've already determined that your machine is expecting a call from theirs.
To enable polling on your machine:
  1. Press Menu/Set 217
  2. Use Up/down arrow to turn on polling
  3. Enter the fax number you're polling
  4. Press Fax Start to dial that number
  5. Press Menu/Set
I hope this works for you. All the best!

Won't receive faxes


Make sure the receive faxes button is set properly. If it is not set to fax only, you will need to manually receive faxes, the machine will not auto answer.

BROTHER FAX MACHINE 2800


Your Brother machine#s Sleep Mode function reduces power consumption while the machine is idle. You can adjust how long your Brother machine is idle (between 00 and 99 minutes) before Sleep Mode is initiated. Please note that the default setting is 00 minutes, and the timer automatically resets itself after the Brother machine receives a fax,receives data from your PC, or makes a copy. To adjust your Brother machine#s Sleep Mode setting, please follow these steps:

1. Press MENU/SET, 1 (General Setup), 7 (Sleep Mode).

2. Use the dial pad to enter the amount of time the fax machine is idle before Sleep Mode is initiated (00 to 99 minutes).

3. Press the MENU/SET key to confirm your choice.

4. Press the STOP/EXIT key to exit the menu.

NOTE: If you frequently print, copy, or fax, set the idle time long
enough to insure that you will not always have to wait for the Brother machine to warm up.

Phone hookup


First only plug the line in the LINE socket otherwise it wont receive.

Manual receive will probably be the best as conflict may occur with the answering machine and the fax. You will either not receive faxes or messages. Its a bit of a pain as you will have to be home to receive faxes. eg pick up the handset and press start.

Its the easiest. Unless you want to fiddle with both machines settings to use the fax/telephone mode.
