Setup Receive
Before you choose the ring pattern to register
You can only register one Distinctive Ring pattern with the
machine. Some ring patterns cannot be registered. The ring
patterns below are supported by the Brother machine. Register the
one your telephone company gives you.
The machine will only answer calls to its registered number.
The first two rings are silent on the machine. This is because
the fax must «listen» to the ring pattern (to compare it to the
pattern that was ‘registered’). (Other telephones on the same
line will ring.)
If you program the machine properly, it will recognize the
registered ring pattern of the ‘fax number’ within 2 ring patterns
and then answer with a fax tone. When the ‘voice number’ is
called, the machine will not answer.
Registering the Distinctive Ring pattern
Very important
After you have set the Distinctive Ring feature to ON, the receive
mode is set to MANUAL automatically. Unless you have a TAD or
Voice Mail set up on the Distinctive Ring number, MANUAL mode
means you must answer all the calls yourself. You can not change
the receive mode to the other mode while the Distinctive Ring is set
to on.
