I'm having the same problem ? Have the Faxphone L80. It was working fine... sent it in for warranty work to repair a roller assembly. Hooked it back up... and now when people try to fax me they just get a constant busy signal. I can't send either... it acts like the line is in use. This is on a dedicated phone line. I have the phone line coming from the walljack and plugged directly into the side of the faxmachine in the "L" jack. Any idears? The display says Fax/Tel mode and shows the date like normal

SOURCE: fax line stays busy continously...

Are there any other phones that use that line? If you have a phone attached to the fax machine, is the reciever in the holster all the way?

Cannot receive faxes

Make sure that the telephone line from the wall is plugged into "LINE" and not "PHONE" on the fax machine. You might also call the fax number from a different phone to see if you can hear the fax tones.

To send a fax you do not need to enter anything into your fax. You have to make sure that you connect the telephone line to it's desgnated connector. You dial a number to send as if you are calling form a normal phone. If you ever get a ringing tone press start. You can enter any data trough the data registration after you make sure your fax is functioning properly.

Can't receive faxes

Something is causing the fax machine to "trip" to busy. There is some type of short occuring either in the fax machine or the physical phone line itself. Unplug the fax, plug in a regular single line telephone. Call the fax number from another telephone. If the phone rings and you can talk to the other party, the problem is in your fax machine. If the call still is busy, the problem is in your wiring, either in your office or the phone company network.

If it is a dedicated fax line it is probabaly best set to fax only mode. Fewer rings (No more than two) FaxTel mode will ring for longer to allow you to pick it up if its a phone call.

Check if the machine has dial tone by onhook button or handset to check. If you have none try testing with another phone to rule out the machine.

Try a manual reception. Pick up the phone when it rings and press the start button.
