If the phone line is attached to the unit, you may hear the fax line ring because as I recall, that circuit is powered by the phone line, but it will not answer or receive a fax while it's not plugged into the power outlet.
If that's not what you meant, please clarify and I will attempt to further help you.

My panasonic panafax uf-890 has three ports on it's leftside and they are labeled "line" "telephone" and "handset". For faxing proposes, which port should I have plugged-in?


The "line" port is for the telephone line you intend to use for faxing.
The "Tel" port is for an external telephone to be plugged in.
The "Handset" port is for the hanset which may or may not have come with the fax machine.

Am trying to send a fax on brother 575. I placed the paper face down -- dialed the telephone number and pressed fax start. The receive messages comes up on my machine and the fax does not go...


My first assumption would be, since this appears to be a new fax machine for you, to ensure that the telephone line is plugged into the correct port on the fax machine. There are usually two ports, a telephone port and a line port, you want the telephone line to be plugged into the "line" port.

Let me know.

WHEN A FAX IS TRYING TO COME THRU, IT RINGS, THEN BEEPS AND SAYS "RECEIVE ERROR"


There may be some static on the phone line, try a line filter. If possible, you could plug the fax into another working telephone line, and have someone send a fax to that number (whatever number is attached to the new phone jack) to isolate whether or not it is the machine, or the wall jack.

Do you need two phone lines for the fax and phone on this machine? if so do i need a two way plug for the phone?


You do not need 2 lines for a fax/phone. The only trouble is that you will not be able to tell the differance between a phone call and a fax unless your called first. There is a feature call distinctive ringing that should be offered through your phone company. The different types of ring would indicate a phone call or fax. The answer to the 'splitter' is that if you plug in your fax machine directly into the jack, most newer fax have a 2nd plug in the back labeled 'ext', this is where you can plug in a phone for the same number.

My fax comes on when my phone rings


You need to purchase a cross-over cable to use on your fax machine. This cable will change line 2 to line 1 for the fax so it will pick up the line when line 2 rings and not line 1.

If you want to use a regular cable you'll have to have someone rewire the jack in the wall to swap line 1 and line 2, then just plug the fax machine into this jack.

Receiving fax problem


try unplug the phone line and use another phone to call again, then c if it has a fax tone, if it does, there might be another fax machine that picks up the fax before the Dp-190 pick up the fax.

another thing you can try is to change a new phone line that connect between ur machine and the plug.

We can't send or received faxes


Just a suggestion. This effect can happen if you have plugged the line cord into the tel jack instead of line jack.

Sleep


You should be able to send and recieve faxs in the sleep mode. You need to reset the machine, pull out the plug, hold down the menue key while you plug the machine in. When maintanence comes up in the display enter 01 and wait. Whwn maintanence comes up again press 99. DO NOT PRESS ANY OTHER NUMBERS OR YOU WILL DAMAGE THE MACHINE BEYOND REPAIR. Your fax is now reset and completley empty, you will have to put in your name etc and sleep mode will be set to "0" minutes
