    I purchased the Brother Fax-575. The fax will not automatically detect an incoming fax. Even though I have changed the setting to "Fax Only", no faxes come through.

Make sure the receive mode is not selected as manual. If it is, you must pick up the phone handset and press start. There is a long skinny button that is Receive Mode, just select Fax.

Also check the incoming phone connection, make sure it's plugged into the LINE connection hole, not the EXT hole.

My hp 1040 will not pick up fax after the fifth ring answering machine picks after forth ring can't tell the between phone call or a fax used to before changed date on answering machine fax quite working


Set rings to answer
You can select the number of rings that will occur before the fax answers an incoming call. If you are using your machine as both a telephone and a fax machine, we suggest you set the ring count to at least 4 to give you time to answer.
TIP: HP 1050 Fax: The Toll Saver function for the Digital Message Center interacts with Rings to Answer. See Toll Saver on page 40. If you have the HP 1050 Fax and have Toll Saver turned on, set the Rings to Answer to 2.
1. Press Menu repeatedly until BASIC FAX displays and press Start/Enter.
Rings to Answer will display.
2. Press Start/Enter.
3. Enter the number of rings you want (2-7) and press Start/Enter.
The HP Fax rings the set number of times and then answers. It then produces a different sounding ring to alert you to which type of call is incoming.
• The additional ring may occur once for a fax call
• The additional ring occurs 5 times for a voice call. After the 5 additional rings, the answering machine will answer.

How do i set up fax to automaticely receive faxes after several rings


For a phone line dedicated only to the fax machine, the process is as follows:
  1. Press Menu/Set, 0, 1.
  2. You will see the Fax Receive window
  3. Use UP and DOWN arrows to change the setting to FAX ONLY
  4. Press Menu/Set.
  5. Press STOP/EXIT
Your fax machine will now answer every incoming call.
If the fax machine is sharing the phone line with a telephone, repeat the above steps and change from FAX ONLY to FAX/TEL This option will allow you to share the line with a phone only, not an answering machine. Once in FAX/TEL mode, the fax machine will still grab every incoming FAX call, and give a special ring (slightly different than a regular telephone ring) when it's a regular incoming phone call signaling you to answer the phone. I hope this helps with your problem. Best of luck!

My fax machine MFC7420 can not recieve any faxes but I can fax out? Please help ASAP. Erica 514-940-3645


There could be many reasons why your MFC won't receive faxes. 1) MFC may not be set to answer incoming calls, 2) Call is answered by voicemail (or answering machine), before MFC is programmed to answer, 3) Incoming ring line voltage is insufficient for MFC to detect. Check the first 2, as those will be simplest. You can check the 3rd, but you'll need another fax machine to do so (if it receives, then your MFC should receive). Let me know what you find out.

Turn off fax ringer - turn on phone ringer Laserclass 2060P


Hi
You can set it for manual mode.
Or set it for fax only but set the incomming ring count to more than 8 times that will give you time to answer a call before it go to fax.

Recieveing


If all else fails try the manual mode:(Press Receive Mode to select
FAX ONLY, FAX/TEL,TAD:ANSWER MACH. orMANUAL.)

Manual Reception
1
Pick up the handset while the phone is ringing.
2 Press Fax Start if you hear fax tones (beeps).
3 When the LCD shows RECEIVING, replace the handset.
(best used when you are expecting a fax and know that the incoming call is a fax)

If you are like most people you probably also have a phone with an answering machine or voicemail setup on your home phone. If this is the case you may want to set the reception made to
TAD:ANSWER MACH.

Brother Fax T78 wont 'ring'


Yes. try bypassing the router by plugging your phone directly into the phone jack, and have someone send you a test fax.
What happens it even now days, the majority of fax machines still use analogue phone lines, and the digital signal will mess them up, mostly because the digital lines have less power and current, and do not signal the recieve mode to switch on.
Very common occurance. Glad you mentioned the router or I would have sent you down a long winding path LOL.
You are suffering a low signal issue.
The reason you can call out is that you are manually activating the phone or fax when you remove the receiver. When you receive, it taked the proper signal strength to activate the fax modem.

Fax will not recieve


DR mode means that Distinctive Ring is set to on which will force your fax machine to manual receive. Turn DR off and you can set it to whatever mode you want.
