Re: faxing

You could try pressing the on hook dial button once you have a dial tone dial the fax number you are trying to reach and then you will be able to hear f there is a fax tone form the other machine or a error message from your operator. If there is a series of beeps with the document in the feeder press send.

The most common cause of not sending is ECM (Error Correction Mode) press menu and within TTI settings make sure this is turned off.

Hope this helps you
Thanks J

I have a lexmark fax/copier X4270 I can receive faxes but can not send them please help

If you can receive a fax but can't send them, then the G3 fax board is working. It is therefore a settings problem in the unit or a telephone company issue. Review your TX settings and confirm that you have not turned off the send option. If that's ok, then move the fax unit to a different telephone wall outlet and try it. Are you sure your telephone agreement allows out of area dialing? If you have only local service, you'll not be able to dial out to anything outside your local area.

Brother Intellifax 4100 unable to send fax but can receive

Is the fax sensing the paper you put in to send out? Check the little black levers that poke into the document area. They should move freely when you touch them gently with a finger, and return quickly when you take your finger off. If it can't sense the paper it won't try to send a fax. If, when the paper is inserted, the display changes from whatever it said to anything else, the paper is being sensed.
Let's try dialing manually. Just left of the 1 key is a button labeled "Hook." Pressing that will take the telephone line "off-hook," like picking up the receiver of a phone. You should hear a dial tone -- if not, try adjusting the speaker volume with the buttons just right of the numbers. Once you get a dial tone, dial a number, whether it's another fax, or your own cell phone. As far as the phone company is concerned, your fax is just a phone, calling another phone. If you can make a call, and the phone at the other end rings, we're closing in on the problem. If you can dial another fax machine manually, you can still turn this into a fax call, assuming there's paper ready to fax. After the distant fax answers, touch the Start button, and your fax should take over. If you can't dial manually, try unplugging your fax from the phone line, and replacing it with a regular phone. Can you make calls with it? If not, the fax is no longer a suspect - you have a phone line problem.
Are you at a business where you need to dial 9 to get an outside line? It's easy to forget that detail when you're using a fax, but it has to dial out just like any other phone on the system.
If you can't get a dial tone at all with the fax, but it works with the phone alone, the main board in the fax is probably bad. If you can dial manually, using the Hook switch, but the same number doesn't work when you dial xxx-xxxx-Start, that sounds like a main board problem, too.

To send a fax you do not need to enter anything into your fax. You have to make sure that you connect the telephone line to it's desgnated connector. You dial a number to send as if you are calling form a normal phone. If you ever get a ringing tone press start. You can enter any data trough the data registration after you make sure your fax is functioning properly.
