Kindly check if the telephone cord is connected properly from the walljack to the LINE jack of the machine and the handset is connected to the jack that shows picture of a telephone.
If it still shows telephone press hook/speaker phone.
Hope this will help.

    just want to correct it. it hook/hold button in the middle of redial/pause button and resolution button.

  • kris roxas Mar 29, 2011

    Try to open and close the front cover by lifting it up right under the control panel before sending a fax. because telephone will show if the mach cannot detect the document. And also make sure that the phone is not in use because if the handset is in use it will also show telephone.

    Please rate if this helps.

Hi, are you sure the fax is connected to the phone jack in the right way? That could be the source of your problem, if you're not sure how to connect it properly, I suggest you consult the manual - Brother IntelliFax 2820 manual. Hope this helped. :)

How do I change the time on the Brother 2820 fax?


This was taken directly from the Brother 2820 Manual:

Setting the Time

When the machine is not in use it will display the date and time. If you set up the Station ID the date and time displayed by your machine will be printed on every fax you send. If there is a power failure, you may have to reset the date and time. No other settings will be affected.

1 Press Menu/Set, 0, 2.
[2. Date/Time]
2 Enter the last two digits of the year.
Press Menu/Set.
3 Enter two digits for the month.
Press Menu/Set.
(For example, enter 09 for September,
or 10 for October.)
4 Enter two digits for the day.
Press Menu/Set.
(For example, enter 06 for 6th.)
5 Enter the time in 24-Hour format.
Press Menu/Set.
(For example, enter 15:25 for 3:25 P.M.)
6 Press Stop/Exit.
The LCD now shows the date and time
whenever the machine is idle in Fax
mode.
When the machine is in Sleep mode, the
LCD shows Sleep. (See Sleep Time on
page 2-8.)


Turning on Automatic Daylight Savings Time

You can set the machine to change automatically for Daylight Savings Time. It will reset itself forward one hour in the Spring and backward one hour in the Fall. Make sure you have set the correct date and time in the Date/Time setting.
