The setting is located in "menu," under fax settings, and you are looking to lower all transmission and receptions speeds/rates. This is due to the fact that voip services do not support faxing, though with this modification you should be able to receive and transmit faxes fine, though this is not a guaranteed fix.

The fax on my brother MFC-8460N does not work. it does not pick up a dialing tone when sending and on receiving it rings once says receiving bit nothing comes through. Please help


Your modem setting probably is not compabile with the data rate your phone will support.

From the user manual --

If you are having difficulty sending or
receiving a fax due to possible interference
on the phone line, we recommend that you
adjust the compatibility setting to reduce the
modem speed for fax operation

Press a or b to choose Basic or
Normal (or High).
Basic cuts the modem speed to
9600 bps. Unless interference is a
recurring problem on your phone
line, you may prefer to use it only
when needed.
Normal sets the modem speed at
14400 bps.
High sets the modem speed at
33600 bps.
Press OK.
Press Stop/Exit.

The other thing to consider is do you have tone or pulse dial service from your telephone company?

How do I turn off ECM in my Brother MFC 8220?


From the Brother website:
If you are using Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP), (a technology that allows you to make telephone calls using a broadband Internet connection instead of a regular (or analog) phone line, review the information listed below. If you are not using VoIP continue to Step 8.

Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) is not a marketed feature of your Brother machine, however there is a compatibility setting available with this machine that may assist with sending and receiving faxes when using VoIP. Adjusting this setting lowers the baud rate (modem speed) and turns ECM (Error Correction Mode) Off. To adjust this setting follow the steps listed below:



  1. Press Menu or Menu/Set => Fax => Miscellaneous => Compatibility.
  2. Select Basic.
  3. Press OK or Menu/Set. (For touchscreen models, skip this step.)
  4. Press Stop/Exit.

Ng poor line condition/ out of memory


Generally this is an indication that the telephone line you are trying to fax over has either alot of noise on it or possibly on the receivers end.If you are on a telephone line which has DSL service on it make sure you have a line filtre connected on the fax to eliminate line noise for your DSL modem, as well if you are using a digital phone service such as Vonage or your Cable providers phone service this is a digital service, contact brother technical support to have your modem speed lowered to 9600bps through the firmware switches on your machine.

Fax to location does not pickup and goes into


Adjust you transmission speed to the lowest setting then try.
Keep boosting speed up until you can no longer connect then back down one speed.
This brand is known for communication problems with other brand of fax machines.This is the only workaround that has supplied results for me.

I have my fax machine hooked up through a magic jack. how do i change fax speed?


I contacted the folks at MagicJack today and for faxes they confirm your findings. They suggest the following: We do not officially support using faxing with MagicJack. Please try the following steps to use MagicJack with your fax (contact your fax vendor for details):
- turn off error correction on your fax machine or program
- set the fax machine or program to use the slowest speed available
- increase the speed, checking at each speed that faxes work

The change must come through your fax machine, not the MJ.

HERE is a link to the manual for your fax machine.




If you are having problems sending or
receiving a fax due to possible interference
on the phone line, we recommend that you
adjust the Equalization for compatibility to
reduce the modem speed for fax operations.
a Press Menu, 2, 0, 2.
b Press a or b to choose Normal (or
Basic).
�� Basic reduces the modem speed to
9600 bps. Unless interference is a
recurring problem on your phone
line, you may prefer to use it only
when needed.
�� Normal sets the modem speed at
14400 bps. (Default)
Press OK.
c Press Stop/Exit.
Note
When you change the compatibility to
Basic, the ECM feature is only available
for color fax sending.



There are only 2 speed settings. Since the MJ does not support faxing, if the slower 9600 bps does not work, you will be unable to fax with the MJ.


Thanks for using FixYa - A FixYa rating is appreciated!!

Baud rate


1. Why 9600?

Because you are using a VOIP service it can from time to time lose connection briefly. The slower the speed the less data can be loss do to network congestion. It also gives the error correcting function of the receiving fax a better chance of filling in any lost data.
9600 is a good choice becasue the industry minimum is 9600. This means you will be able to communicate pretty much any fax thats is still tickin today. Raising the speed will get you a faster transfer but will also increase the chance that you are sending data at a faster rate than the recieving fax can send.

2. How to change the baud rate....

Press Menu/Set, 2, 0, 1.
Press ▲ or ▼ to select Basic or
Normal (or High*).
Press Menu/Set.
Press Stop/Exit.
* High is available for FAX-2910, FAX-2920
and MFC-7225 only.
Note
Basic reduces the modem speed to 9600
bps. Unless interference is a recurring
problem on your phone line, you may
prefer to use it only when needed.
Normal sets the modem speed at
14400 bps.
High sets the modem speed at
33600 bps.
