Question about Brother IntelliFAX 560 Plain Paper Fax
Can you temporarily just let the phone ring until answering and not auto into fax mode? thanks
Depending on the model of fax some have switchs on the key board and some have switch in the set up menu. There are usually 3 or 4 answer modes. One for FAX or automatic receive, MANUAL to allow you to answer the phone and many have an ANSWER MACHINE mode to allow you to hook to ansering machine...What kind of fax do you have.

Set the number of rings before answering
If you turn on the Auto Answer setting, you can specify how many rings occur before
incoming calls are automatically answered.
The Rings to Answer setting is important if you have an answering machine on the
same phone line as the device, because you want the answering machine to answer
the phone before the device does. The number of rings to answer for the device
should be greater than the number of rings to answer for the answering machine.
For example, set your answering machine to a low number of rings and the device to
answer in the maximum number of rings. (The maximum number of rings varies by
country/region.) In this setup, the answering machine answers the call and the device
monitors the line. If the device detects fax tones, it receives the fax. If the call is a
voice call, the answering machine records the incoming message.
To set the number of rings before answering via the control panel
1. Press Setup.
2. Press Basic Fax Setup, and then press Rings to Answer.
3. Enter the appropriate number of rings by using the keypad, or press the left or right
arrow button to change the number of rings.
