Your fax machine is not getting a dial-tone.

Plug a regular phone into the wall jack and listen for a dial-tone
Make sure the phone line is hooked into the LINE port of your fax machine.
Unplug the power cord for 10 seconds.

Black lines on received faxes


look for a corona wire, close to the drum
  1. Clean the primary corona wire inside the drum unit by gently sliding the tab from right to left several times.
  2. Return the tab and snap it into the home position.

    Won't receive fax calls canon pixma mp830


    The normal problem with a fax that will not receive calls it the phone line.
    The Line Voltage, or current may be low, or the signal ( DB loss) may be affecting it.
    Let me give you an explaination. When you send, you physically connect to the phone line, make the dial tone and whatever is there, it goes out over the line.
    When you receive a fax, it is like a remote control, with a remote you need good batteries to generate enough signal to turn on a product.
    With a fax, you require an electrical signal, like a remote control to activate the receive capability. Low power, voltage or current. or static, will not allow it to receive, just like a remote with a bad battery will not turn on a product.
    Issues can be. The phone cord between the fax and the jack. A bad jack, something on the outside line.
    Using a digital phone line, or having another device on the same phone line drawing down the line, or picking up. A credit card machine, answering machine, even another phone can cause issues. If on a shared phone line, disconnect everthing but the fax and have someone send you a test fax. See if that helps.
    But more than 90 percent of fax will send , will not receive issues are phone line related.
