How do I block unwanted faxes on my Sharp MX-4111N Printer?


There should be a section in the manual. Not to sound text bookish and evasive but each is a little different But a fax is a fax. it's a land line that still has parameters. To block an in coming fax would be the same as a blocked call on your house phone. Some mild programming knowledge would be required. Just as if I would say mild know-how to program a remote or change a contact on your e-mail list. If these last items are a challenge for you then entering data in a fax may not be your ball of wax. someone you know might help out. If you're up for the challenge then I would have you pull out the book on the fax portion of your printer. Nice multi-units like that usually have 2 or 3 books, each having to do with a major function. ie fax//printer// networking(connecting to a hub). The fax book will have sections on entering speed dials and group polling and this is the area that will detail what buttons to push. some even have a length of fax to dis-allow long drawn out junk mail. Some businesses control their unwanted faxes by setting up just the opposite~~numbers ONLY to accept. Others no matter what get ignored. Another way if these don't work is what many businesses do is to put a time to receive, which basically is arbitrarily 7am to 430pm. You might just eliminate a lot of unwanteds that way.( knowing specifically that they always call after 7pm... or such...get it? ) good luck hope this helps a smidge~~~SC

If you subscribe to a caller ID service through your phone provider, you can block specific fax numbers, so the HP Fax does not print faxes received from those numbers in the future. When an incoming fax call is received, the HP Fax compares the number to the list of junk fax numbers you set up to determine if the call should be blocked. If the number matches a number in the blocked fax numbers list, the fax is not printed. (The maximum number of fax numbers you can block varies by model.)
Thank you.

Can i turn the fax machine off on my Philips Magic 5 voice dect?


I think that you must turn the machine in the phone mode. So, when you want to receive the fax
the only thing that you have to do is to turn it in to fax mode or press the start.

Issue The product cannot receive a fax, but it sends faxes successfully. All other functions work correctly. Usethe following solutions in the order presented to resolve the issue.When one of the solutions resolves the issue, there is no need tocontinue troubleshooting. Solution one: Run a fax diagnostic test
  1. On the product control panel, press the Setup button (c01461502.gif).
  2. Press the Right Arrow button (c01185072.jpg) to select Tools.
  3. Press the Right Arrow button (c01185072.jpg) to select Run Fax Test, and then press OK. The fax diagnostic test prints.
  4. Review the results of the test.
    • If the test lists faxing issues and solutions, the fax test failed. Follow the solutions on the printed report totroubleshoot the issue. This report is specific to your product andfaxing environment, so try the solutions on the report before tryingthe next solution in this document.
    • If the test does not show faxing issues and solutions, the fax test passed. Continue to the next solution.
Solution two: Test the receiving function Follow these steps to make sure the receiving function works correctly.
  1. Makesure the originator of the fax has the correct fax number for yourproduct, and then ask that person to send a test fax to your product.Watch the control panel display and listen to the sounds the productmakes.
  2. Review the results of the receiving function test:
    • If the product receives the fax correctly, you resolved the issue. You do not need to continue troubleshooting.
    • If the product does not ring or does not answer the call from the other fax machine, ask the originator of the fax to send the test fax again. If the second try fails, go to Solution eleven in this document.
    • If the message on the control panel reads ' Answering' and does not change to ' Connecting', the product is not detecting the other fax machine. Go to Solution eleven in this document.
    • If the product rings briefly, and then stops, another device answered the call. Continue to the next solution to continue troubleshooting.
Solution three: Check for conflicting telephone services Many telephone companies offer services that prevent unwanted calls. The following services might block incoming faxes:
  • Voice mail
  • Privacy block
  • Security screen
  • Anonymous call rejection
  • Privacy manager
  • Any other service that screens or intercepts incoming calls
If any of these services are on the telephone line connected to theproduct, contact the telephone service provider for its recommendedsolution. A distinctive ring service, if it is available from the telephone service provider, often resolves this issue. Solution four: Use an analog phone service HPdesigns Fax and All-in-One products to work with analog telephoneservices. These products might experience some difficulties whenconnected to phone lines with digital services. For best faxingresults, connect the product to an analog telephone service. To obtain digital services information or support, contact the telephone service provider or your system administrator. Solution five: Check the fax connections
