How do I increase the number of rings on my Brother MFC-780n fax/printer before it picks up?



Setting the Ring Delay
The Ring Delay sets the number of times the
MFC rings before it answers in Fax Only or
Fax/Tel mode. If you have extension
phones on the same line as the MFC or
subscribe to the telephone company’s
Distinctive Ring service, keep the Ring Delay
setting of 4.
(See Operation from extension telephones on
page A-4 and Easy Receive on page 4-3.)
1 If it is not illuminated in green, press
(Fax).
2 Press Menu/Set, 2, 1, 1.
3 Press ▲ or ▼ to select how many times
the line rings before the MFC answers
(00 - 04).
Press Menu/Set.
(If you select 00, the line won’t ring at
all.)
4 Press Stop/Exit.

Need to set up phone/fax instead of just fax


I have a HP Officejet J6480 All-In-One and needed the answering machine and fax to be on at the same time.  I called the help line at HP and they said I needed another phone line into the home but I tried this and it worked. 
First I got a different phone number for the fax machine - they do this for no charge at my phone company. This is not another physical line into the home - it is just another phone number with a different ring - it rings 2 fast rings for the fax machine instead of the phones regular one ring. I set the answering machine built into the phone to pick up after 4 rings and I set the fax machine to pick up on 2 rings. Be sure to set it so the fax pick up number of rings are less than the answering machine pick up number of rings.  It worked for me. Hope this works for you too.

How to receive faxes automatically


First this is a good machine, I use the same one and have my fax setup for the same thing. If you have a (TAD) Telephone Answering Device first you have to set up your phone to pick up before the fax, do this by setting the phone to pick up on three rings and the fax to pick up on four. Go to Menu/Fax/Setup Receive/Ring Delay. While there make sure Easy Receive is on. The machine itself will distinguish between regular calls and facsimiles and will display this info at the time of the call on its LCD screen, make sure you are using the line connection and not the phone connection. Hope this helped.

Not receiving faxes


So if you have no noise, its a prob of the tele company not of the mfc!
Or did the tel company change to another tel standard instead of your former type?
You have to talk to the tel company to get that clear. Ask for the line standard bein g used (ISDN, normal, or a special tcpIp).

When you got the info call brother hotline of your country for support. They will help you with that prob.
