HP 2727nf fax machine Fax not working what is the problem ?


Get an analog phone to test your phone line first. Then, make sure this line is connected to LINE port on your fax machine. Use the same analog phone to connect to the EXT port to test the line again.

Use another line to call this fax number to see whether the analog phone rings. Once you know the line and connection is okay, let's reset your fax machine. See http://www.fixya.com/support/t2503076-hp_laserjet_m2727nf_mfp for the cold reset instruction.

Error code 48


Code 48 is internet disconnect.
On the machine if the machine is set up for internet connection, turn it off. Sometimes email is turned on and the other settings are not setup correctly.
Make sure all settings are done correctly
If one is faxing make sure the phone line is connected correctly and their is a good sounding dial tone.
One area to keep in mind is a phone dial tone turning off and on.This can be a phone company issue or poor line connectors in the building, even a corroded plug on the phone receptical.
Check these areas, even replace the phone line cord with a new one.
On the machine a fax machine not sending or recieivng, suspect a board causing the problem.

I have Linksys modem no AM300.I try and send a fax and it will not go through Error report "NO Answer" BUT I know fax machine on other end is ok.Internet is ok.Can you help John


Even though you have internet, have you connected a phone line? Most fax machines/software rely on the phone line. I don't know how you are sending a fax. If you are sending a fax directly from an all-in-one, you'll need to connect the phone line to the back of that device. If you're sending a fax using a program on the computer, you'll need to connect the phone to the back of the computer.

You can temporarily disconnect your land-line phone and connect it to the all-in-one or computer. Just remember to reconnect it when you are done so you can receive phone calls.

I hope this helps!

I am trying to use the fax facility on my epson600fw.my isp is aol .Problem no dial tone. What connections are necessary............via printer,modem & computer ?


Typically, a fax machine is connected directly to a telephone wall jack with a known working connection. Try plugging the fax machine directly into a wall jack first and pick up the handset on the fax machine if it has one. You should get a dial tone. Then try to fax something to someone you know.

The machine can also usually be routed through the modem in a computer by connecting the "line" cord on the modem to the wall jack and plugging the fax machine into the the "phone" jack on the modem. You may need to install the software that came with the fax machine to get this to work.

If you have no dial tone, check the wall jack with a known to be working single line phone. If there is a dial tone, it's something to do with fax machine, the computer modem or the connections.

Some fax machines can take advantage of internet faxing through a cable modem or DSL connection. Check your manual for the options available.

Fax won't work with new digital/internet phone system


True. ALL fax machines are analog devices. Internet phone lines are DIGITAL.

There is no way to make it fax reliably.

Fax


hook a phone to the line if you get a dial tone, and can dial out it is not the line, make certain the phone line is connected to correct phone jack port on the machine. there is usually phone and a line on there. connect it to the line.
What happens when you try to fax, do you get an error, what is that error. try to manually fax something.

I need to know how to connect my fax to my computer.


hi there,

May i know what is your purpose connecting those unit?

If you want your computer can dial up internet connection, just plug your phone line to computer modem port and other side plug to the phone port at your fax machine.

If you want your computer can send fax, same with above tips. but you must install fax program at your computer, so you can directly send fax through your computer.

We have an internet modem(connected w/an ethernet cable) that also includes a phone line which also connects to a fax machine. We only have one phone number and we were told if we put our fax on auto...


Most fax machines do not operate well on digital lines.
Contact your provider and see what fixes they have for your specific fax machine.
Most fax machines still require an analogue line.

Pc compatibility


The brother 560 has NO provision for connection to a PC.. The specifications do not mention PC compatibility, nor is there provision for either USB or RJ-45 connections on the machine.. You could use the phone line connector on your PC, but there is no exchange of data on the phone line between the PC and the fax. The phone plug on your PC is meant mainly for connection to the Internet via telephone, or to use the PC-to Fax feature, if so equipped.

Fax machine rings when I call out using another phone connected to same line


My phone does the same thing but only when it storms. Click website link. http://www.weirdstuff.com/cgi-bin/item/12165 Maybe I should get one. I know it says for DSL noise but it also cuts down on cross connection noise.
