Hook a dedicated ANALOG phone line to to the LINE port on your machine.

Sharing a line with an answering machine or whatever makes for big problems.

Shipped fax machine to R.I. from Florida and forgot manual. Cant fax.. Don't know how to program Where can I get a manual for the Brother fax 775


Most manufactures have a website that allows you to download an owners manual for thier product. I would do a search for brother fax machines and then look for manual downloads for your specific model.

Even still it is generally not necessary to reprogram anything on a fax machine to make it function normally. If the phone line is in the correct jack you should hear a dial tone and it should function. The jack that it should be in is usually called "Line" or it might have a picture of a telephone.
Good luck

Panafax uf-895 faxes, won't print. Put a new toner in, gives message 021


Error 021 relates to the Fuser unit (the bit that gets hot inside).
It is not related to the toner, which is a bit strange, but try switch off/on first.

Failing that you may need to clear the error in service mode. To access this:

Press "Function", "7", "Monitor" four times, then "*".

The machine should be saying "Service Mode"

Then press "7"

The machine should say "LBP Parameter Set"

(not 100% about the next bit but it should be reasonably straightforward to follow the display on the machine)

You are looking for "LBP Fuser Reset"..I think it is this:

Press "2" for "LBP Fuser Reset"

Press "Start"

The machine may reboot at this point.

If this is done correctly and the error still remains, the Fuser Unit will need replacing.

Sorry to be a bit vague on the instructions..not worked on these for a few years :)

I have a brother 4100 fax. how do I change the information on the fax transmission page? thank you


If your date and time are not set yet, press Menu, then 1, then 2 and enter the date and time, pressing Set after each entry. Enter time in 24-hour format so it will display AM or PM properly.

For other info at the top of your fax transmission page after date and time, such as your fax and phone numbers, and company name:
Press Menu, then 1, then 3 for Station ID info.
First put in your fax number and press Set.
Next put in your phone number and press Set.
Next press the buttons for your company name and press Set.
Press Stop/Exit to return to the date and time display.

Here is info on inputting text, from the manual:
Entering Text
When you are setting certain functions, such as the Station ID, you may need to type text into the machine. Most keys on the dial pad have three or four letters rinted above them. The keys for 0, # and don’t have printed letters because they are used for special characters.
By pressing the appropriate number key repeatedly you can access the character you want.
Inserting Spaces
If you want to enter a blank space, press once between numbers and twice between characters.
Making Corrections
If you entered a letter incorrectly and want to change it, press to move the cursor after the last correct letter. Then press Clear; all letters above and to the right of the cursor will be deleted. Re-enter the correct characters. Also, you can back up and type over incorrect letters.
Repeating Letters
If you need to enter a character that is assigned to the same key as the previous character, press to move the cursor to the right.
Special Characters and Symbols
Key - once - twice - three times - four times - five times
2 - A - B - C - 2 - A
3 - D - E - F- 3 - D
4 G H I 4 G
5 J K L 5 J
6 M N O 6 M
7 P Q R S 7
8 T U V 8 T
9 W X Y Z 9
Press for (space) ! “ # $ % & ’ ( ) + , - . /
Press # for : ; < = > ? @ [ ] ^ _
Press 0 for é à è ê î ç ë ö 0

How can i change the ringer on my fax machine?


Setting Ring Delay:
The Ring Delay setting determines the number of times the fax machine rings before it answers. If you have extension phones on the same line as the fax machine, keep the Ring Delay at a default setting of 4:
1 Press Function/Set, 2, 1.
2 Press < or > to select how many times the line rings before the fax machine answers (00 – 04) and press Function/Set. If you select 00, the line doesn’t ring at all.
3 Press Stop to exit.

Hope that's clear enough :)

Wow. Digital lines are difficult to fax over. Most are still set to use analogue lines.
Those are also very odd changes. Most fax machines no longer even have a setting as low as 9600 baud.
Your fax may not have the ECM mode as changable, may just be built in, but that is not a function you normally would want to turn off. ECM is Error Correction Mode.
This honestly just sounds like a disclaimer to excuse their system's poor fax service.

TO NO MANUAL,

WHEN YOU DIAL A FAX NUMBER, AND IF YOU
HAVE DIALED IT CORRECT, YOU NEED TO
WAIT UNTIL YOU HEAR A COUPLE OR A FEW
DIFFERENT "CONNECTION" SOUNDS, AND
THE LAST SOUND IS THE FAX IS CONNECTED
TO THE FAX NUMBER DIALED SOUND.

IF I AM CORRECT, THE FIRST SOUND IS
A LOW TWEET LIKE SOUND, THE SECOND
SOUND IS A HIGH PITCH TWEET SOUND,
AND THE THIRD OR FOURTH SOUND IS
THE FAX SOUND, WHICH IS A SORT OF
STATIC-LIKE WHISTLING SOUND.

WHEN YOU HEAR THE FAX SOUND, THAT
IS WHEN YOU PRESS THE SEND FAXCIMILE
BUTTON.

I HAD A SIMILAR PROBLEM WITH A FAX
MACHINE ABOUT FOUR YEARS AGO.

IF THE FOREMENTIONED INFORMATION
DOES NOT HELP, YOU MAY WANT TO
RECONFIGURE YOUR FAX SEND AND
RECEIVE SETTINGS. REFER TO YOUR
OWNER'S MANUAL FOR TECHNICAL
DATA.

GOOD LUCK.
