Faxing with Dell printer 968

I 'm connected to a wall telephone jack with a splitter---one end wiith a filter is connected to my phone other goes into my modem supplied by Verizon DSL (model 7500).
I have the owner's manual,but I'm having problems sending faxes.

Also I assume that to receive faxes, the person sending can use my telephone number as my fax number.

Firstly yes your telephone number is used as your Fax number.

Your phone line connections sound ok, so the problem must be with your fax machine.If it's a combined Fax/Printer make sure you select Fax mode.

On the Lexmark X3430 all-in-one printer...to FAX... where is the connections for the phone cords to plug into modem and one to plug into computer?


It is entirely possible you were given the wrong instructions for your printer (or someone wrote the instructions without seeing the actual machine). Why not contact Lexmark and ask for a logical explanation?

I have fax problem in my multi-function panasonic printer machine, all the power and rest functions are working other than fax, I am not getting the line dial tone when pressing monitor even the faxline is...


See Page 72 of the User Manual available here:

http://www2.panasonic.com/consumer-electronics/support/Phones-Fax/Fax-Printers/Multifunction-Printers/How-To-Guides/model.KX-FLB801.H#ts

I cannot hear a dial tone.


The telephone line cord is connected to the [EXT] jack on the unit. Connect to the [LINE] jack (page 21).


L If you use a splitter/coupler to connect the unit, remove the splitter/coupler and connect the unit to the wall jack directly. If the unit operates properly, check the splitter/coupler.


L Disconnect the unit from the telephone line and connect a known working telephone. If the working telephone operates properly, contact our service personnel to have the unit repaired. If the

working telephone does not operate properly, contact your telephone company.


L The power cord or telephone line cord is not connected. Check the connections.


L If you connected the unit through a computer modem, connect the unit directly to a telephone line jack.


I cannot make calls. L The dialing mode setting may be wrong. Change the setting (feature #120 on page 22).


The unit does not ring. L The ringer volume is turned OFF. Adjust it (page 23).

Hope this is helpful. ;)

No dial tone on handset. can't send or recieve fax.


? Other equipment, which uses the same phone line as the HP All-in-One,
might be causing the test to fail. To find out if other equipment is causing a
problem, disconnect everything from the phone line, and then run the test
again. If the Dial Tone Detection Test passes without the other equipment,
then one or more pieces of the equipment is causing problems; try adding
them back one at a time and rerunning the test each time, until you identify
which piece of equipment is causing the problem.
? Try connecting a working phone and phone cord to the telephone wall jack
that you are using for the HP All-in-One and check for a dial tone. If you do
not hear a dial tone, contact your telephone company and have them check
the line.
? Make sure you have correctly connected the HP All-in-One to the telephone
wall jack. Using the phone cord supplied in the box with the HP All-in-One,
connect one end to your telephone wall jack, then connect the other end to
the port labeled 1-LINE on the back of the HP All-in-One.

If the supplied phone cord is not long enough, you can extend it. For
information, see The phone cord that came with my HP All-in-One is not long
enough.
Check the connection between the telephone wall jack and the HP All-in-One
to make sure the phone cord is secure.
Make sure you use the phone cord that came with the HP All-in-One. If you
do not use the supplied phone cord to connect from the telephone wall jack
to the HP All-in-One, you might not be able to send or receive faxes. After
you plug in the phone cord that came with the HP All-in-One, run the fax test
again.
If you are using a phone splitter, this can cause faxing problems. (A splitter is
a two-cord connector that plugs into a telephone wall jack.) Try removing the
splitter and connecting the HP All-in-One directly to the telephone wall jack.

If you are using a phone splitter, this can cause faxing problems. (A splitter is

splitter and connecting the HP All-in-One directly to the telephone wall jack.
If your telephone system is not using a standard dial tone, such as some
PBX systems, this might cause the test to fail. This will not cause a problem
sending or receiving faxes. Try sending or receiving a test fax.
Check to make sure the country/region setting is set appropriately for your
country/region. If the country/region setting is not set or is set incorrectly, the
test might fail and you might have problems sending and receiving faxes.
Make sure you connect the HP All-in-One to an analog phone line or you will
not be able to send or receive faxes. To check if your phone line is digital,
connect a regular analog phone to the line and listen for a dial tone. If you do
not hear a normal sounding dial tone, it might be a phone line set up for
digital phones. Connect the HP All-in-One to an analog phone line and try
sending or receiving a fax.
Make sure you use the phone cord that came with the HP All-in-One. If you
do not use the supplied phone cord to connect from the telephone wall jack
to the HP All-in-One, you might not be able to send or receive faxes. After
you plug in the phone cord that came with the HP All-in-One, run the fax test
again.
After you resolve any problems found, run the fax test again to make sure it
passes and the HP All-in-One is ready for faxing. If the Dial Tone Detection test
continues to fail, contact your telephone company and have them check the
phone line.

Fax gets a phone line error. I switched from 1 line to another. I used a single line splitter but it still will not fax. What to do?


Hi, it seems you got a connection problem. Here are some tips to check it:
1. Make sure the phone line in the wall is working. There should be a dial tone if you connect a regular phone device in that.
2. Check if the telephone cable that you're using is in good condition.
3. Telephone cable from the wall/splitter must be plugged in to the Line port behind the printer.
4. Make sure that it's the correct fax number assigned in the printer.
5. If all is ok but still having the error, try plugging the printer/fax straight to the wall jack bypassing the splitter.
Hope this helps.

How do I connect the fax to my home phone line. MFC 240C all in one printer


On the left side of the printer there are two telephone line connections, one is for the telephone line and the other is for the telephone extension. You will need two telephone lines, the type that have that clicker on the end, the line hole goes directly into the wall jack for the telephone and the extension line goes directly into the telephone that you had plugged into the wall. Try that, it works.

Hooking up cables and phone line to use the Fax on the P3150


Find a telephone wall-jack.
Buy a 1-to-2 telephone-splitter -- one end plugs into the wall-jack, and the other end provides 2 telephone-jacks.

Connect your telephone to one of those 2 jacks.
Connect your All-In-One to the other of those 2 jacks.
Be sure to use a 4-wire telephone-cable, not an 8-wire network-cable.

Telephone line connection


Two options:

1) Pick up a phone line splitter (Radio Shack or just about any other retailer has them) that has a plug on one side and two jacks on the other. Plug this into the phone jack where the line to your computer is connected. Plug the cord to the computer back into one jack on the splitter and plug the line to the fax machine into the other jack. (If it will physically fit into the space on the back of the computer, you can just plug the splitter into the modem connector, plug the line cord into one jack and the fax cord into the other.)

2) (Useful if the phone jack is behind furniture or just hard to get at.) Get a phone line splitter with all jacks (two on one side, on on the other). Unplug the line cord from the computer and plug it into the single jack on one side of the splitter. Then run a new line cord from one of the two jacks on the other side back to your computer. Plug the cord to the fax machine into the other jack.
