Nope. Fax machines use what is called a handshake to establish the connection.
It's a tone sent from the sending fax machine to the receiving machine to make it answer and receive the incoming transmition.
It's not a unique ring.
I always tell people, one of two things. If faxs are that important, you should have a dedicated phone line to receive them. Or, in instances where the message it very important. Use E-mail and sent the information as an attachment.
I understand the expense of an additional phone line for a fax. But you should weigh the importance of your faxing to the expense. Are you missing valuable information by sharing a line?
Just some thoughts.

Help connecting brother fax machine


1. Connect the handset.
Connect the curled handset cord to the bottom of the handset and to the left side of the machine.
2. Connect the power cord.
3. Connect the telephone line.
Connect one end of the telephone line cord to the jack labeled LINE on the left side of the machine. Connect the other end to a modular wall jack.
WARNING
 This machine must be grounded using a three-prong plug.
 Since the machine is grounded through the power outlet, you can protect yourself from potentially hazardous electrical conditions on the telephone line by keeping the power to your machine on when you connect it to a telephone line. When you want to move your machine, protect yourself by disconnecting the telephone line first, and then the power cord.
 Lightning and power surges can damage this product! We recommend that you use a quality surge protection device on the AC power line as well as on the telephone line, or unplug the lines during a lightning storm.

We went to a roll over system on our phone lines and now we cannot receive faxes. We can send them though.


Your roll over system is sending calls to the first line in the sequence and it does not differentiate between voice and fax. You will have to change the roll over so it does not send calls to your fax line. Your internal phone system may still use the fax line for outgoing faxes and voice calls but incoming fax calls have to be sent to the line the fax is on.

What does poor line condition mean? i can receive and send faxes but to one particular fax number is it my fax or the other side?


If this happening only on one fax number, its the other side, could be their line or fax machine.

Just make sure for youre end that the telephone wire is in the LINE jack of fax machine (NOT EXT) and other end should should go directly to wall jack (meaning no extention or splitter)

Fax machine shows message "external phone". Machine is a Philips Magic 3 primo


The message means that a telephone connected to the machine is off hook. Either that or the internal relay that seizes the line after a phone is used has hung up. In that case, try removing the power to the machine and unplugging the line and any other phone cords connected to the machine. Then 1st plugging in the power cord and wait until the machine powers up. If the error code doesn't appear, then plug in the line cord.

It could be that your sending fax is sending paper not facing the scanner. In that case tell them to turn the paper over to send. Other than that, it could be that the telephone lines are so dirty that the fax protocl fails at the check frame signal. You will have to adjust the equalisation and line attenuation. Don't count on the telephone company to help you, they always want you to do everything 1st before they will admit to any fault on their part.

Can't fax


You probably have the telephone cord patched into the wrong jack. Make sure it is plugged into the jack marked "line." If the problem persists, try doing this: 1. Unplug the power cord and the telephone line cord. Then wait for 30 sec or so before 1st plugging in the powercord. Wait until the display reads the currently set time, then plug the telephone line cord into the jack marked "line."
