Step by step information at the link below. Brother Fax T96 The F/T
Mode is used to allow the fax machine and the telephones to share the
same telephone line. When a call comes in, the fax machine and all
extension telephones on that line will ring according to the number of
rings you have set for the Ring Delay.
When the Ring Delay is completed, the fax machine will answer the call
and determine if it is a fax call or a telephone (voice) call.
The fax machine can determine this by the signal it is receiving on the
telephone line. If someone is sending a fax automatically , the sending
fax machine will transmit a fax tone (a series of beeps every 3
If your fax machine hears these tones, it will receive the fax.
If the fax machine does not hear any fax tones, it assumes it is a
telephone (voice) call and will begin ringing the F/T ring tones (double
ring) for the length of time you selected for the F/T Ring Time. These
tones will only ring on the fax machine's handset (extension or external
phones will not ring). At the end of the F/T ring time the fax machine
will go into the receive mode in order to receive a manual fax.
(If the call was a voice call and was not answered, the caller will hear the fax receive tones also).
If you answer the call before the fax machine(during the ring delay
period) and determine it is a fax, you can transfer the fax to the fax
machine for receiving.
If you answer the call on an "extension" phone and hear a beep every 3 seconds (automatic fax) or silence (manual fax), press *51 or *91
for New Zealand (remote activation code) on the telephone keypad, wait
to hear the fax machine turn on (chirping sounds) and then hang up.
If you answer on the handset of the fax machine and hear a beep every 3 seconds or silence, press the FaxStart or Start/Copy key on the control panel of the fax machine and then hang up the handset.
If you answer a call on an "extension" phone during the F/T Ring Time, you will hear the F/T ring tones.
To release the call from the fax machine, press #51 or #91 for New Zealand (remote deactivation code) on the telephone keypad and you can speak to the calling party.
If you pick up the handset of the fax machine during the F/T ring time, you may talk to the calling party immediately.
