Question about Brother IntelliFAX 770 Plain Paper Thermal Fax

1 Answer

Caller ID won't work.

Picked up a used 770 yesterday. I have windows XP and now have been able to send faxes. I want to use the attached phone for incoming calls but my Caller ID doesn't show up when one comes in. I only have one phone line and am using a splitter to connect to the fax and my laptop. Also, it won't let my other phones ring sometimes and nothing shows up on them when they do ring. Any ideas on how I can get it to work? Also, the date didn't change this morning--still says 29th and it is the 30th.

Thanks!

Fax machines are designed for a dedicated phone line only.

No computer modems, no answering machines, credit card terminals, no digital phone lines, etc.

Brother 4100e Fax Problem - Caller ID won't work with Fax Machine


Usually, fax machines don't have caller ID capability.. If the sender's fax number appears on the faxes you receive, it's just that they have programmed it into their fax machine as a header.

Manual Doesn't Work Either!


Fax machines usually don't have Caller ID. If you see the phone number on received faxes its because the sender has programmed it into their fax machine.

Intermittent problem of faxes not being rec'd from various areas


After a detailed discussion on chat, we got disconnected before accepting payment. This is not a problem with your fax, as it seems to be receiving most calls fine. I suggest printing out a report - Menu/Set, 2, 0, 2 - of caller ID history and having the phone company look into it further. Either there is a problem with your phone line, or someone is prank calling your fax from outside of your caller ID service area. Both are problems for the phone company to fix.
