I have this exact printer for home use. Here what you do.

Plug one end of the Cat3 cable ( standard phone cable ) into the modem and the other end into the 1st port to the front on the left side. Then follow the instuctions in the manual to set up the fax service. Its basically asigning your fax name and number from the menu button.

I hope this helps, if ya need more assistance please post here.

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.

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.

I have a Brother Fax 2820 at home. It is connected to a TAD. I want an external fax machine to send and bypass the voicemail greeting and print the fax. I thought I set the machine to TAD. Any other...


try this paul. hook your phone line from your wall jack to your "line" jack on your fax. then run another phone line from your "external" jack on your fax to your "line" jack on your TAD. now, make sure your fax machine is still set to TAD. here is whats important...set your TAD to 4 rings or less. 2 is the recommened setting. also very important...when you record your outgoing message on your TAD, make sure you leave about 5 seconds of silence before you start recording your message. the reason for this is the fax machine needs to "hear" the CNG tones that originate from the sending fax so that it knows its a fax and then can take over the call. if it doesn't hear those tones because of noise (voices, etc), it will let call go to TAD. you can try to set your TAD to 4 rings, but that doesn't leave much time for fax to "hear" these tones. if you set to 4 and don't get all your faxes, try lowering the setting to 2 or 3 rings.

good luck and hth,

My fax goes off periodicall when a call comes in.


It means that your fax machine is "answering" the incoming call before you pick up the handset. Usually, the factory setting on the fax machine picks up after two incoming rings. There are three ways you can address this issue: 1.) You can either change the number of rings to, say, five incoming rings to give you enough time to answer the phone before the fax machine picks up, or 2,) you can find out if your fax machine has a feature that allows for the voice hook "click over" that will allow you to override the fax when you pick up your handset, or 3.) turn your fax machine off until you need to send a fax.

If you want to investigate number 2.), then you'll need your operator's manual.

Good luck.

Able to receive fax but cant send


sleep mode is just a status of the machine when it is in idle mode.you cannot turn this off however you can delay the time before the unit goes into a sleep mode.it has nothing to do when you are sending out faxes.so here are a few things you need to check when sending a fax (1)dial tone by pressing hook/hold button (2) insert the doc into the adf, make sure it will change to "enter fax # and start,or copy press copy (3) dial the number (4) wait for fax tones of the receiving unit before you press start. now if you can hear an operator on the line,that has to be verified with your phone company since brother machine does not restrict incoming and outgoing faxes UNLESS that is restricted from your phone line.

Panasonic KX-FM220 fax machine does have a dial tone


I would double check your phone cord. There is usually 2 jacks in the back of the fax machine. 1 is for Line, and 1 is for phone.
Your phone cord should be hooked up in the LINE jack that goes to the wall.
I would also double check your phone cord on another phone to make sure the cord is good.
If you look at the clear connector that you plug into your wall and fax machine, does it have 4 copper/gold color wires contacts imbedded in the clear plastic connector?

Another thing to try, if you fax machine has a Line and a Phone connector, try plugging in a phone in the PHONE connector. Then hook up another phone cord going from the LINE to the WALL jack.
If you get a dial tone on your Phone, then you know you have it connected correctly. If no dial tone, then I would go back to the phone cord.
check those things and get back to me and I will see if I can help you with more suggestions.
Good luck.
Mac =)
