I called Canon about this. They had me tweak the transmission start speed (Menu>FAX setting>TX settings>TX start speed). It was too fast. Set it to 4800. Then it was too slow. Clicked it up to 7200 and now it works!! TX Start Speed should not be too fast or too slow.

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.

When sending a fax I keep getting back a result "BUSY". I've tried a couple different numbers and always get the same thing. Faxes are coming in just fine.


The only thing that could stop you from sending a fax or not get a dial tone, would be the connection to the phone line. Make sure the telephone wire is plugged into the line jack and not ext jack of the machine, and should go straight to the wall, without splitters or extensions.

If you still cannot send a fax, try another wire or jack

Can send fax but cannot receive fax. cannot copy


With your cell-phone, dial the telephone-number for the FAX interface.
Does your cell-phone "ring", or do you get an "intercept" ("this number is not in service") or do you get a "busy" signal?

Does the FAX "answer" after one ring? two rings? three rings? does it NOT answer?

Have a 6210 hp all in one, i can receive a fax but when i try to send one i just get a busy signal


If you get this on every number, check your setup and make sure that you haven't set it to add some extra number. Also try to send a fax to another fax number.

Difficulty sending a fax


Hello. Please make sure your telephone line is plugged into the correct outlet.

Most fax machines typically allow you to plug the line (the cord that goes from the fax machine to the wall jack) and and a telephone (the telephone connects to the fax machine).

In order to fax correctly, you must plug the line into the jack with a block (looks like a 'T') marked on it. Do not plug the line into the jack marked with a phone hand set marked on it.

This shoulds in detail how to connect the line properly. For this printer the line cord must be plugged into the jack labelled "L"

This will show you how to actually send the fax. On your PDF View select page 42.

My model Kodak 5500 printer/fax


Just found your post and I'm having the same problem. Everything else seems to be working correctly. I can copy, scan, print and I THINK I can send a fax correctly, I should have called the person and made sure it arrived. However, I cannot receive faxes. I have an answering machine on the line, but it is not plugged into the Kodak Pinter, it is in another room. The answering machine answered the call, the FAX noise came across, but the Kodak Printer never picked it up and printed out the fax. I think I have all the settings correct, but the instructions are not very clear. Do you think I HAVE to have the answering machine plugged into the Kodak Printer? That doesn't make sense, but I might try it.
