You might need to dial 9, followed by a comma or pause, if you are faxing from inside an office.

You might need to dial 10 digits, if you live in a high density location in North America.

If you're dialing a long-distance number, the person paying for the line may have disabled long-distance calling - check with parents / spouse / boss / landlord, as applicable.

Need to know how to fax from mcf 210c


How to enter Fax mode
Before sending faxes, make sure (Fax) is illuminated in
green. If not, press (Fax) to enter Fax mode. The default
setting is Fax.
How to dial
You can dial in any of the following different ways.
Manual dialing
Press all of the digits of the phone or fax number.
Setup Send
3 - 2 SETUP SEND
Speed-Dialing
Press Search/Speed Dial, #, and then the two digit Speed-Dial
number. (See Storing Speed-Dial numbers on page 5-1.)
Search
You can search for names you have stored in the Speed-Dial
memories. Press Search/Speed Dial and the navigation keys to
search. (See Storing Speed-Dial numbers on page 5-1.)
* To search alphabetically, you can use the dial pad to enter the first
letter of the name you are looking for.
Fax Redial
If you are sending a fax manually and the line is busy, press
Redial/Pause, and then press Black Start or Color Start to try
again. If you want to make a second call to the last number dialed,
you can save time by pressing Redial/Pause and Black Start or
Color Start.
Redial/Pause only works if you dialed from the control panel.
If you are sending a fax automatically and the line is busy, the MFC
will automatically redial one time after five minutes.
If the LCD shows Not Registered when you enter the
Speed-Dial number, a number has not been stored for it.

Color fax transmission
Your MFC can send a color fax to machines that support this feature.
However, color faxes cannot be stored in the memory. When you
send a color fax, the MFC will send it in real time (even if Real Time
TX is set to Off).

WE CANNOT RECEIVE OR SEND FAXES, BUSY/NO SIGNAL


Plug a phone into the jack and check to make sure you have a dial tone. If not telephone company needs to be called. If dial tone it may be the other number you are trying to fax to. try calling the number from phone and see if it picks up.

No dial tone fax will not send


if all the connection are correct.. and there are still no dial tone, most probably your modem board is shorted.. you will need to send it to the service centre for the modem board replacement.

Fax is always busy when sending, have the line into the phone line port and into the telephone jack, fax scans and dials and even redials but it never go through, prints out receipt that says busy/no...


Has it always done this, or did Fax once work? Sadly, Windows XP Fax has many shortcomings, not the least of which is that it won't work with many modems still in common use. Modem incompatibility is not apparent during installation or the initial setup. It only becomes apparent when you try to send or receive a fax. The Fax Service will dial or will answer an incoming fax but then fail with any of a number of unhelpful error messages such as "Line is busy," "There is no answer," or "Reception error." There will be nothing in Event Viewer to give a clue as to where the problem might lie.

These errors have been nearly impossible to track down. To do so requires enabling both PSS and debug logging of fax transmissions, both of which require fairly extensive registry changes. For the time being, the best advice is to attempt to use XP Fax only if you have a modem that is listed on the Windows XP Hardware Compatibility List and using the latest drivers.

Hope helps.

Can't send faxes. I always get the answer thar


you have a dialing problem.

If you are sending your fax long distance, you have to dial a 1 before the area code.

I cant fax


Take your cell-phone, and dial the same number, to see if you get the same "busy" signal.

If the telephones in your business require you to "dial-9" to get an "outside" line, be sure that your FAX is also following that "dial-9" protocol, and also waiting 1 or 2 seconds after the "dial-9", in order to get the dial-tone from the "outside" line.

I CAN`T SEND A FAX


Fax machines are sorta like printers, sorta like scanners, and sorta like dial up modems all wrapped into one expensive box.
1. First thing to make sure of is that you are hooked to a phone line. most fax machines have a phone handset that you can make calls from. Call someone and make sure that works. If So, you are able to connect to phone networks, and should have no trouble sending or receiving data. If you have a dead line or no sound, check the line and check the power. (its always the easy stuff that is overlooked, just check it and make sure).
2. If this fax machine has computer interface, (usb port or parallel cable port), see if you can scan with it. Drop a document into the scan area and see if the computer can scan an image from the scanner. If the scanner works, you can scan images into the fax machine to be sent to the fax number. (If your fax machine does not have a scan to computer feature, skip this.)
3. if your fax machine has a print from pc feature, try to print a document to it from your computer. If you can print, then the printer works, and you can receive faxes. (if your fax machine does not have a pc printing feature, skip this)
4. Here is how a typical fax machine works. You place the document or image into the scanner feed area. You press a big button that usually says "fax" and then, a screen pops up saying to dial the number. You dial the number and press SEND. once you press Send, the machine will scan the document, dial the number and sing a little dial up modem song awaiting a response from the receiving machine. the receiving machine acknowledges the fax, and the singing is no longer audible (but it continues because the modem song is actually data transmission/reception). after about 20-60 seconds, the fax completes and the call ends. As for the particular model you have, the functions should be about the same, though the buttons and arrangements may be different. FYI, you can send a fax straight from the PC too, if you have a dial-up fax/modem card.

Faxing problem


1) Plug a single line wired (not cordless) phone in to the exact same phone jack as the fax machine and dial one of the fax numbers you are trying to dial out to using the exact same digits. Does the call complete Y/N? do you hear a fax tone Y/N?
>>>>If either answer is "No" you have an invalid phone number. If both answers are "Yes" proceed to step 2.

2) When you off hook do you hear a "stutter" dial tone? Y/N?
>>>>>"Yes" This is your phone company telling you that you have unlistened voicemail messages in your mailbox. Dial in to your voice mail and clear your messages. "No" go to step 3.

3) 2 part question: Do you have call waiting and is your fax machine trying to disable call waiting when dialing out?
>>>>>In many areas *70 (star-seven-zero) will disable call waiting for a single phone call. If you try to disable call waiting when call waiting is not on the line, the call will not complete. This may come in to play in a speed dial situation.
+++Other things to consider+++
*Is outgoing long distance blocked on the line?
*Is outgoing regional intralata (same area code) long distance blocked?
*Is local calling blocked?
*Is a speed dial misprogrammed? Forgot to dial "1" Dialed "1" in error?
*Is there a wiring problem? >>>Try moving fax machine to a different phone jack.

There may be no magic answer for your problem, I hope one of these suggestions helps.
