If the Comcast people changed the equipment in the phone room they probably ran direct lines to each phone or put filters in the lines. The reason you're not seeing the lines light up is the phones are not wired correctly now. The cable box that all of your lines are coming from must have a 1 to multiple line adaptor for each line. The adaptor feeds all of the phones. Communication for the intercom and the line in use lights goes down the phone lines so ther has to be a direct connection between all of the phones. If there are filters in the lines they must be put between the cable box and the line splitter. You can get the line splitters at Radio Shack (Model 279-435 for 1 to 3 adaptor).

No matter what fax number I dial, I hear the cannot be reached as dialed message. I have one verizon phone line, with verizon DSL running off of the same line. My phone line is okay, because I can reach...


It is probably the same problem I just had with mine through Comcast. All I was getting was a not answered message no matter what number I dialed. I had the telephone line running through a surge surpressor that had one line running in and then two lines running out. I had been hooking up my fax through one of the two out lines. When I switched it to the main line and not through the surge protector everything worked fine.

So if you have any splitters or surge surpressors on your line - switch to the main line and see if your problems does away like mine did.

Have a great night!

Does not wait for the 4th ring; sends call to verizon voice mail box after the second ring


Sounds like your service provider(Verizon) has your phone line setup to forward to voicemail on no answer after 2 rings. Call your service provider's customer service number and request that the number of rings for forward no answer be increased to at least 5, then your answer machine can receive and answer your calls after 4 rings but if your line is busy callers can leave a message with your Verizon voicemail service. If you don't want Verizon voicemail to answer any of your calls, you could have them disable the voicemail service. When you call the service provider have a recent bill ready because they may request your account number before they will make any changes.

Trouble with call forwarding to our multiple lines & voicemail


It's not and they're idiots. The hunt sequence you describe CF-No answer is part of their arrangement, probably Centrex/Centranet.

This is one of the sloppiest setups they can possibly give you, but it relates to destinations for CF busy and CF no answer. Get someone who has a clue and tell them to adjust the time on the No Answer part, or, better yet, give you something that really works.

AT&T Model 854 4 line phone, turn off unused line lights


It's a matter of cabling.

Make sure that only the line you wish to use is connected.

If all of the lines are cabled with two to four line cable, then reduce the cabling to a single red/black combination on the one line.

Brother Intellifax 770 fax machine failure to receive faxes


I get calls all the time about fax issues. I work for Comcast and have guided people to the right answers about third party devices. We use a digital connection. Analog is a dying medium. Most calls are concerning HP and Brother but I know others fax machines have had problems too. The new HP machines have a digital setting. HP is aware of digital issues and can help you. It is unfortunate that old fax machines are not digital but a new fax is inexpensive if you wish to buy one. Analog takes up too much space. An example: Six digital television channels can fit in the same space (bandwidth) as one analog. That is why the FCC mandated the change. The same goes for phone lines. I Google almost every problem concerning fax machines and if you go past all the upset comments you will get to the comments that offer remedy. I also wanted everyone to know that a second, no frills fax line from Comcast is very inexpensive and our way of offering a dedicated fax line intead of a distinctive ring fax option.
