I instruct my office to fax me a documet, the ready light flashes on andoff. The menu bar says "incoming call" , after 15 seconds the menu bars says no fax detected. I checked the menu and found the fax routing faxes to the PC. I unplugged the pc cord, went into the menu and changed the setting to not send faxes to pc. but still will not recieve faxes. Checked tofind that the data line was connected to the data port. would like to reset machine to original factory default settings. Also, just moved to new house, was working fine before the move. gene
NVRAM init NVRAM init returns all stored parameters in NVRAM to factory default values or to a default ROM value, depending on the variable, and performs a system reset. Performing NVRAM init can cause the product to violate local telephone regulations. Reset the language and country/region after performing NVRAM init. ENWW Service-mode functions 265 NVRAM init resets the following settings and information: ● All menu settings are reset to factory default values, including fax header and company name. ● Factory settings such as formatter number, page counts, and factory paper settings are reset. ● All faxes in memory are erased. ● All speed-dials, group-dials, and phone book entries are erased. ● All localization settings, including language and country/region, are reset. To perform NVRAM init 1. Turn off the product. 2. Press and hold down the * and MENU/ENTER buttons. 3. Continue to hold down the buttons while you turn on the product. Hold the buttons through the entire power-on sequence. 4. When Permanent Storage Init. appears on the control-panel display, release the buttons. 5. When the message Language appears on the control-panel display, set the correct language and country/region. 6. Allow the product to return to Ready before using the product.
Yes, its easy. In Fax setup under menu, change the answer mode to Auto.
So... I tried this method and the screen doesnt change. Nothing happens at all actually, Im not sure why. Is there anyway, other than having someone send you a fax to see if you are receiving faxes?
