Fax from computer


First, you will need a USB fax modem. Then you use Windows Fax & Scan program to create/forward new fax documents, or even send a file as a fax or email.


Setting up your external modem to work with an internet telephone line is simple. Simply put a 2 way splitter into the internet modem telephone jack. Plug your telephone into one input and the external fax modem into the other. Then you can even dial from your computer routine telephone calls too.


Need more explanation? Let me know.

Fax problem


I want to make sure I understand this completely. You get no dial tone from the fax machine when hooked up to VOIP. In the past, was there an audible dial tone from the fax, or did it just dial silently and give you an error if there was no tone? When you said you got a dial tone by connecting a phone to the ext phone port of "the machine" did you mean the fax machine? If you get a dial tone by running a phone through the fax machine, then the line is good. I have used a fax machine over Sunrocket before they went defunct, which used the same technology base as Vonage - so it should work. If you used to get an audible dial tone when using the fax, and no longer do, and you are geting a dial tone on a regular phone that is connected to the ext. port of the fax machine, then the problem has to be in the fax machine itself, not the VOIP. If you can verify that, we can go from there.

Installed Cox Digital Telephone. They disconnected my fax line. I have a Dell 968 printer and what I read on line is that it is not compatible with Windows 7 and that I would have to update the prin


Most newer fax machine seem to short line 1 and 2 together and this will cause a VOIP modem "called an eMTA" to go off hook. Your fax machine should have come with a phone jumper that has only a single line "2 wires inside it", you should be able to use that jumper to attach your fax machine to your house phone wiring. If you use a standard phone line jumper it has both lines "4 wires" and can cause your eMTA modem to go off hook which could be why it was disconnected.

NG Codes poor line quality 4100 E Intellifax by Brother


To check your line quality is very simple. Unplug the fax from the telephone line and substitute it with a normal single line telephone. Make an incoming and outgoing call. if you hear any echo or crackle on the line when you are being quiet, then you have a noisy line and you should report it to your telephone company to have the line cleaned. If it is quiet then the problem lays with the fax. There are ways around the problem in the software of the machine but its quite complicated and best left to a trained brother engineer.

I have an HP 2510 printer. I cannot use it to fax because once I plug the phone jack into the printer I get a busy signal. If I plug the jack into a phone, it works fine. How do I get the printer to...


Hi irwinbadin,

HP fax products are designed so that other telephone equipment can be connected on the same line as the fax. The unit must be connected first using a two-conductor fax/phone cable like the one that shipped with the HP product. Using a four-conductor telephone cable may cause problems receiving faxes or calls.

There are two different types of phone cables. There are two-conductor phone cables like what originally shipped with the HP fax product and there are four-conductor cables. HP fax products are designed to work with a two-conductor phone cable. Look at the end of the cable and verify that it has only two copper leads or wires. Replace any four-conductor cables with a two-conductor cable. Only two-conductor phone cables should be used to connect the all-in-one to the phone line.

Figure 1: The difference between a two-conductor phone cable and a four-conductor phone cable

Step one: Connect the phone line to the fax
The fax will have two or three sockets (or jacks) for phone lines. Some of these may have a removable plastic plug in them. These sockets will be labeled with text, To Wall Jack , or with a graphic of the wall jack. See Figure 1 below.

Plug the two-conductor telephone cable that came with the HP product into the telephone wall jack. Then, plug it into this socket as shown below.

In areas with above ground telephone lines and electrical storms (lightning), it is a good idea to purchase a telephone line surge suppressor and connect it between the telephone wall jack and the fax. This will help prevent damage to the fax from a lightning-caused power surge on the phone line.

Step two: Add other phone-line devices
To connect other telephone devices, use the other socket (or sockets) on the fax. These are identified by text or with a graphic of a telephone and/or computer.

Connect a caller ID unit between the fax and the telephone.
Use the information below that matches the devices you need to connect.

Fax and telephone
Connect a single-line telephone to one of the added sockets on the fax. The telephone will share the same phone line as the fax. See the illustration below.

Fax, answering machine, and telephone
When a telephone answering machine and telephone are connected, connect the answering machine to the fax and then connect the telephone to the answering machine as shown below.

Fax and computer modem
To use a fax and a computer modem on the same phone line, connect the fax to the computer modem. The modem socket on the computer may be labeled Line or Wall jack .

Fax, computer modem, and telephone
To use a computer modem and a telephone with the fax, connect the computer modem to the fax. Then, connect the telephone into the second phone line connector on the computer modem or the third fax socket (if it is available). The image below shows how to connect a computer and a telephone to a fax with two sockets.

reyjoshua07_10.jpg


Fax, modem, answering machine, and telephone
The image below shows how to connect a computer modem, answering machine, and telephone to a fax. Connect the computer modem to the fax, then connect the answering machine to the computer, and finally, connect the telephone to the answering machine.
If the fax has three phone line sockets instead of two, some of the devices can be connected to the other phone socket on the fax.

How do I hook up an HP v40 to my PC and a cable modem so that my FAX works?


You probably need to hook up to a landline telephone line, too. Or, you can use an "e-fax" service that lets you send faxes via internet. Basically, they would send your fax as middleman to the recipient. Windows Vista except Business version) does not have inherent fax support like Windows XP and Windows 7 Professional. And programs such as WinFax did not upgrade to Vista and 7. But, your fax modem should have come with some faxing software.

You put in modem card and then run telephone line to back. You can usually run a line to a telephone from the 2nd connection on the back with the telephone symbol below it.

Hope this helps you a litle.

What does comm error 20 01 mean on my brother 2820 mean? how do I fix it?


This means that your Brother machine experienced a communications error when sending or receiving a FAX. This is generally caused by either interference on the line, phone line connection or another device on the line.
Try resending the documents and see if the message no longer appears.

If the message still appears, there may be a problem with the way the Brother machine is connected or you may have a bad telephone line. Disconnect any other equipment on the telephone line, i.e. answering machine, modem, extra telephones, switching devices, adapters, etc. Make sure the telephone line is connected directly from the jack (socket) on the Brother machine labeled "Line" to the telephone wall jack (socket).
Try resending again. If the transmission is successful, the problem was created by the connection of the Brother machine and the other devices on the line. Reconnect the other pieces of equipment one at a time to see which is causing the problem. If the error continues to appear on the report, try connecting the Brother machine to a different telephone line or have the line checked by the telephone company.

Ng poor line condition/ out of memory


Generally this is an indication that the telephone line you are trying to fax over has either alot of noise on it or possibly on the receivers end.If you are on a telephone line which has DSL service on it make sure you have a line filtre connected on the fax to eliminate line noise for your DSL modem, as well if you are using a digital phone service such as Vonage or your Cable providers phone service this is a digital service, contact brother technical support to have your modem speed lowered to 9600bps through the firmware switches on your machine.

I have a brother mfc 6800 and do I need a telephone line on it?


You will need a phone line connected to the MFC 6800. If you have a separate line for your fax number, make sure you connect this line to your MFC 6800. If you have a different ring, but on the same line as your phone number, you'll need to set up your MFC to utilize the distinctive ring (see the manual for setting this up).

Jacki

 

 Must have DSL filter attached before fax, not sure how you are saying you have it setup, but phone line should come from wall then to filter then to fax socket marked line, phone should be hooked to socket on fax marked EXT, if you dont have dedicated fax line then fax number will be same as phone no.

 

If you have Adsl then there will be a lead from wall that splits into two, one goes to your modem (ADSL) and the other marke phone or line needs to go to fax socket marked LINE
