Is the phone jack cord plugged into the jack?
If so, is the jack operational?
To check the jack, take a land line phone that is working at another jack and try it in the jack your fax is plugged into.
If the jack is operating ok is the wire from the jack to the fax in good condition?
Maybe try the one from the land line phone on it.
If you have already tried all of these things then there is a wealth of knowledge on this site.

Try reset that particular cordless phone, Turn off the phone, remove the AC adapter, press and hold the page/call button that is on the phone and plug back your Ac adapter,
Or alternatively,
Try and hold end and # until system reset menu about 5 seconds. That should fix the problem.

You should press *65# as system pin code to access secret menu to reset factory

Note: This must be done at the menu item "System Settings" before selecting it and being asked for the System Pin which you are trying to reset.

There are no beeps as you enter *65# but when successful, it will display "System PIN Reset" and beep. Your System Pin is now 0000.
please let me know if you need further assistance

You may need to set the main handset to synchronize with the base unit plugged into the telephone wall jack and assign special configuration numbers to the other handsets in order to properly identify each one within a specified location. One handset left in the turned on mode may make it impossible to place calls with the any of the other handsets. This will continue until either the battery dies or fails on the handset or the phone is switched off and replaced in its charger for charging again. Synchronize the main handset by pressing the MENU button on the handset, then pressing the down button IN order to select the number you wish to assign to that handset. Repeating this process if you have already done so will greatly decrease the level of errors experienced with panasonic phones MORE USEFUL INFORMATION FOR ALL YOUR ELECTRONICS When troubleshooting these units, there are always several variables to consider. First check to see what last occurred with the unit such as did the children play video games, did the electricity go out due to bad weather. You may see that there are many possibilities but let's focus on what occurred last to the unit. Once we determine what happened last, we may isolate the actual cause of the problem. The actual cause may be associated with projection issues, older versions (Picture tube), interference from devices located nearby, and even a radio turned on and located really close to your unit. This is normally known as electromagnetic interference to electronics and is very common with the error you have provided today. Please continue to look for anything EXTERNAL to the unit before looking at the internal components. I have been working on these a long time so feel free to follow up with me.

No! there should be no problem or issues because frequencies are wide enough that interference should not be a factor.
