Check to see if there's an answering machine picking up before the fax machine gets a chance to answer. The person receiving the fax might need to temporarily disable their answering machine first.

My Brother MFC7340 Fax Machine will not send faxes it has a busy signal always and a busy signal when someone tries to fax me.


Hi,
You need to reset the memory, since previously you have dialed some number, which is not able to connect. So restart the printer. Unplug the printer for 10 minutes and plug back the power to the printer.

Hope this helps.

Hi.

Check and eventually replace the phone cable.
The fax machine must be connected using a two-conductor phone cable such as the cable pictured below at the left:

Fax is always busy when sending, have the line into the phone line port and into the telephone jack, fax scans and dials and even redials but it never go through, prints out receipt that says busy/no...


Has it always done this, or did Fax once work? Sadly, Windows XP Fax has many shortcomings, not the least of which is that it won't work with many modems still in common use. Modem incompatibility is not apparent during installation or the initial setup. It only becomes apparent when you try to send or receive a fax. The Fax Service will dial or will answer an incoming fax but then fail with any of a number of unhelpful error messages such as "Line is busy," "There is no answer," or "Reception error." There will be nothing in Event Viewer to give a clue as to where the problem might lie.

These errors have been nearly impossible to track down. To do so requires enabling both PSS and debug logging of fax transmissions, both of which require fairly extensive registry changes. For the time being, the best advice is to attempt to use XP Fax only if you have a modem that is listed on the Windows XP Hardware Compatibility List and using the latest drivers.

Hope helps.

Fax is not going out and no signel in the receiver


Plug a compatable phone into the wall socket to see if you can get a dial tone.If not contact your phone company.If you get dial tone then check that you have the phone lead plugged into the line socket on the fax machine and not the extention or Tel sockets.

Fax display screen always reads, "Auto receive". When attempting to fax, the busy light flashes. Busy light stops flashing for 30 seconds, then starts flashing again.
Above is the default settings for the fax.

NGB0 indicates signal error or line condition error.
U need to check the phone line. U can hook any single line phone to the phone line, check for tones without background noise.

Brother Advantage


You mean you can't fax out or you can't get a fax because the line is always busy. I assume you already know it doesn't receive it only sends so we'll go from there. This model seems to have quite a few problems with the fax and it is usually in either the selector the processor or a switch. Make sure all your covers are closed tight if they are it's not the switch but some other problem. Your probably better off getting a new one because the repairs can be fairly expensive from $50 to $90.00 and I have found this model on the net for around $79.99. Hope this helps.
