Question about Brother IntelliFAX 775 Plain Paper Thermal transfer Fax

1 Answer

How do I extend the number of rings before Brother switches to fax?

Our phone/fax only rings four times before it cuts over to fax reception. So we really have to rush to catch our calls. Scotty07

HP 1217 M1217 nfw MFP won't receive fax


Having the TAM set to four rings seems a bit high to me. Decrease the ring count on the Tam. the fax ring count does not really matter.
Keep your outgoing message to a minimum . if too long the calling machine will time out and drop off the line.
see how that goes. Also are you using the genuine adaptor lead. Does the tam actually ring? I suspect not. there are literally loads of adaptor leads that will fit and look the same but they are wired internally for that make only.

Two different numbers on the same line means you're paying for "distinctive ring" service. One pattern of ringing for one number and another pattern for the other number. Your fax's owner's manual has the instructions for training the machine to answer on the correct pattern. If the book has disappeared, download it from here:

I want to shut off answering machine


Use the Reception Mode button to set appropriate answering mode - press it repeatedly until a small arrow on the display will point to the desired option:

"TAD" - is the one you are using now, when the answering machine picks up the calls.

"TEL" - is the setting when no automatic pickup occurs, you always have to pick up the call and either talk (if there's a person on the other side), or press START to receive a fax (when you hear the fax beeps on the other side).

"FAX" - is the setting when after four rings the fax will pick the call up automatically (no answering machine). If you pick up the call manually after 1-2-3 rings (before the automatic pickup) you can either talk or START fax reception.

It's good to check from time to time if the reception mode is as you want it, it's easy to change it by mistake.

Good luck and come back with a testimonial if helped :)

Set your answering machine to pick up after four rings2.gif . This will give the fax machine enough time to take the call if it senses that it's an incoming fax. Setting the answering machine to pick up after four rings would give the fax machine enough time to accept the fax.

How do I get the AM900 fax to work? We lost the book. We hooked it up to the phone line. It rings when the number is called, but it does not connect.


How many rings before it goes back to normal display? There is a possibility that your machine is set to "phone" not fax reception. You can do it right there in the control panel. Look for reception button and select fax, then try again.

Ricoh fax 120 please let me know how to put ricoh on automatic fax receiving while not in the office also when someone rings i can hear the fax sound from my ricoh

1. Press the [F2] key. “ this key is located on the left side of the Control Panel next to the key [12] from the left side and next to the [Memory Trans.] key from the rigt side ”
2. Press the left arrow key to select the reception mode “ this key is located under the Display of the Control Panel”
3. Press the [OK] key when on the display is displayed the mode you want.
note:as you sad you want the machine to reaceive faxes when you are out of the office, so the reception mode [Auto Select] is the most compaible mode for you.
The machine can treat incoming fax
messages and telephone calls in three
ways.
1.Manual Receive
- Use this mode if your line is shared
by a fax machine and a telephone
but you wish to answer all calls
yourself and decide whether they
are fax documents or telephone
calls. You must manually press the
[Start] key to receive a fax.
The machine will ring continuously
until you answer the call, so you
have to be near the machine at all
times. The Manual Receive indicator
is lit when the machine is in this
mode.
2. Auto Receive
- Use this mode if you have a dedicated
fax line. The machine assumes
all calls are fax documents.
It will ring once to alert you of an
incoming call, and then starts receiving.
3. Auto Select
- In this mode, the machine rings a
number of times. You can answer
the call while the machine is ringing.
If you do not answer the call,
the machine automatically changes
to receive fax messages.

Need all incoming calls to ring on preferred phone


Depending on how the private lines were programmed, you need to pull the ringing out of DIL 1:1 if it was assigned and put it into DIL 1:N. Look at programs 407-8 and 603-4.

Fax network not working


Is your phone line plugged into the proper receptical on the fax? It should be plugged into the LINE slot, not the PHONE slot. The PHONE SLOT IS TO CONNECT A TELEPHONE TO THE FAX. IT IS NOT FOR THE INCOMING PHONE LINE. If your phone connection is correct, try calling your fax machine from a cell phone while you are at the fax machine. Listen on the cell to see if the fax machine picks up the line. If it does not, go into your fax machine's settings, either INITIAL SETUP FAX SETUP, or PHONE SETTINGS. You may have to try several settings to find one that works, depending on your fax machine. Try going to RECEIVE SETUP on your fax machines setup menu. Scroll through the settings, writing each down on paper. Try RING DELAY, RING TIME, NUMBER OF RINGS TO ANSWER , or any other settings relating to how your fax answers the phone line. Try changing each setting, one at a time, and try calling your fax to see if it answers. There may also be settings on your fax to set it up if an answering machine or telephone is on the same line.
