Record 5 seconds of silence at the
beginning of your message. (This allows
your machine time to listen for the fax
CNG tones of automatic transmissions
before they stop.)
Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.
We recommend beginning your OGM with
an initial 5 second silence because the
machine may not hear the fax tones over
a voice. You may try omitting this pause,
but if your machine has trouble receiving,
then you must re-record the OGM to
Multi-line connections (PABX)
Most offices use a central telephone system.
Brother recommends that all our machines be
connected to a discreet (dedicated) line.
Although a particular PABX may appear to
work with a particular model of fax machine,
we cannot guarantee that the unit will operate
While it is often relatively simple to connect a
fax machine to a PABX, (Private Automatic
Branch Exchange), we suggest that you
contact the company that installed your
telephone system and ask them to connect
the fax machine for you.
Brother does not recommend the use of a
PABX line. PABX limitations in general can
cause some functions of the fax machine not
to work correctly.
