Cannot Recieve Faxes Intellifax 2800

I recently brought this machine at an incredible deal. Initially I recieved some faxes and I suspect the problem is merely a drum that is past its usuable life. I need an expert opinion as to whether this machine is worth further investment or if it's type were lemons and should be avoided.
Thank you,
Martin
P.S. This is for home use and will not undergo the heavy use an office would place upon it.

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!

2800 will not recieve faxes


Some models will actually stop working whenever a drum message is displayed.
Remember, you do not need a drum to fax out (only to print confirmations) so i would go ahead and change the drum.
Ons ome models you can adjust to how low you want to set it or remove it all together.
It will store it in memory for a while (providing you do not turn off the machine, and print as soon as you replace the toner)
