Re: trying to fax out

I have had this problem several times, and the best thing to do is disconnect the printer completely for a few minutes and then reconnect it. It will clear the cachet and free the printer from the trouble

I have a konica bizhub 200. We can send faxes out

As a first thing to try, with most faxes that send but do not receive, it's usually down to a glitch.

Try shutting the bizhub down fully, then unplugging it physically from the power source for at least 30 seconds. Plug it back in and turn the unit back on, then have someone try and send you a fax.

If this does not remedy your problem, please indicate with a follow-up comment.

How do I manually receive an incoming fax? I do not keep it on Automatic Receive because it is on my voice line, not a dedicated fax line.

When the phone rings, pick up the external handset. When you hear the fax tone come over the line press the Start button and hand up the handset.

Fax answer phone line

You set the machine up in the answer/fax mode, when a fax is coming in you have to press 9 on the phone to make it receive the fax if you pick up the receiver when it is a fax call.
You can also change the number of rings to answer a fax, I think the max is 7 rings.
