Fax machines usually have a telephone cable which you plug into a telephone point and sometimes a power cable to connect to an electricity outlet.

Hooking up fax to KX TG7871 Panasonic Phone


There is excellent support here on basic fax setups. You have what is known as "Distinctive Ringing Service". There are pros and cons to the various setups. I assume you recognize the rings and answer only when the ring for the landline talk comes on. The fax will pick up the faxes, and the answering machine will pick up the voice.

Need model number of your fax - google that!

Service manual for your phone.

This link shows various configurations of setting up your phone/fax/answering machine or using an answering service.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&docname=c00059780#Dist_ring
Distinctive Ringing Service setup While it is not available everywhere, a distinctive ringing service can be purchased from most telephone companies. With this service, more than one phone number is assigned to the same phone line. Each phone number will ring differently. The main number will ring with a normal single ring and the additional number will ring with a distinctive ring pattern assigned by the phone company.
When a distinctive ringing service is used, set the Rings to Answer to 2 and then follow the steps below to set the distinctive ringing pattern:
  1. Press Setup , press 4 , and then press 1 to enter the Answer Ring Pattern setup of the Advanced Fax settings.
  2. Use the Right Arrow to scroll through the available settings. When the ring pattern assigned by the phone company displays (double or triple rings), press OK .

Have answering machine and fax on same line. How do I receive calls or faxes?


Your fax machine *may* have specific instructions (if not too old) for this very common type of installation (many do). Consult your fax manual to learn how to set this up. Your AT&T TL86109 phone has no options for adding a fax machine.

If your fax machine lacks the built-in ability to forward non-fax calls to your telephone or TAD, you will need to either purchase a fax machine that can do this, purchase and install a "fax switch" or, manage your fax calls manually - by only enabling the fax machine to answer calls when a fax is expected.

If yout still have problems, please post the name / model of your FAX machine. I hope this helps & good luck!

Do you need two phone lines for the fax and phone on this machine? if so do i need a two way plug for the phone?


You do not need 2 lines for a fax/phone. The only trouble is that you will not be able to tell the differance between a phone call and a fax unless your called first. There is a feature call distinctive ringing that should be offered through your phone company. The different types of ring would indicate a phone call or fax. The answer to the 'splitter' is that if you plug in your fax machine directly into the jack, most newer fax have a 2nd plug in the back labeled 'ext', this is where you can plug in a phone for the same number.

Need to connect phone and fax machine to one phone jack


You have the wrong adapter probably. Most common types are single line splitters and will not work like you want. They only split line one and 2 gets blocked out as they only have 2 copper connector on the plug centered to get line 1 only. If you want to use an adapter you will need a 2 line splitter like this one:http://www.trianglecables.com/tellinsplitl.html
A simpler solution is to plug your fax into your phone. On top of your phone are multiple jacks labeled L1/L2, L2 only or L2/data. Plug your phone into the wall using the L1/L2 jack then plug your fax into the L2 jack and this will work fine and still allow you use of line 2 on your phone. If you don't want to hear the ring then set your fax machine to auto answer. Hope this helps you.

My new Uniden Phone/Answer machine is loading down my fax line


I have searched the user manual and can find no help on this matter, although there are help numbers listed and I'm sure they can advise, here is the link to the main page and there is a link to a pdf manual download if you don't already have one http://www.uniden.com/products/productdetail.cfm?product=TRU8885-2

However, it may be that you could use a T adaptor or socket doubler on the line jack and plug both in. good luck !
