I need to connect my fax whit the magicjack


A voice over Internet protocol device, magicJack allows you to make and receive telephone calls from your computer using a USB device. While magicJack does not officially support sending and receiving faxes, you can connect a regular fax machine to the magicJack device to send and receive faxes.
Attach the magicJack device to a USB port on your computer.
Connect the phone wire to the port at the end of the magicJack device.
Connect the other end of the phone wire to the "Input" jack on your fax machine.
Turn off error correction on your fax machine, and set your fax machine to the lowest possible transmission speed. Consult your fax machine's user guide if you do not know how to turn off the error correction or lower the transmission speed on your fax machine.
Send a fax to your magicJack phone number to receive a fax. You can find your magicJack phone number at the top of the magicJack splash screen that will display on your computer after inserting the magicJack device.
Send a fax from your magicJack by loading the fax you want to send into your fax machine and pressing the "Send" button.

Cannot send or receive faxes to one particular number, but is able to send and receive faxes with other numbers


"cannot send or receive faxes to one particular number, but is able to send and receive faxes with other numbers"

If your machine can receive a fax transmission from one number, it will receive from all numbers.

If your machine can send to all but not to one particular number, please check that there is a fax machine there to receive it.

You can try to send manually and listen for beeps from the other fax -if one is present- then push the START button to initiate transmission.
If their machine is in working order, the transmission should start. (After the initial 'handshake' of course.)

Can not send fax. The receving fax rings but my machine does not respond and send the fax. I can receive ok.


The document does not feed into the machine.
Be sure the document is not wrinkled, and you are putting it in correctly. Check that the document is the right size and not too thick or too thin. (See document types and sizes on page 43).
You cannot receive faxes automatically. Check if "TEL" appears on the right side of the display. In TEL mode, you
cannot receive a fax automatically. Be sure the handset is seated on the cradle properly.
The machine cannot receive faxes manually. Do not hang up the handset before pressing Start/Enter to receive a
fax.
The machine does not send anything. Check that the document is loaded face down. Send should show up
in the display after it dials. Check if the machine to which you are sending can receive your fax.

We have two fax machines hook up to one dedicated fax line. When we send a fax from wither machine it is not faxing to the phone we fax it only sends the fax for the second fax machine that is in our...


Yes, you must set up your fax machines like this: The receiving fax must be set to auto receive and the telephone line must be inserted in the "line" input. A line must then be connected from the "Tel" to the "Line" of the Transmitting machine, which must be set to "manual receive." This is not really a satisfactory way of doing things as you can't send and receive 2 machines on the same line together. A much better way is to have 2 lines. with a machine attached to each. Get the tel company to put "No answer transfer" on the line as an accesory. Give them the number of the fax machine that transmits. Make it "manual receive" Now you have a versatile system that you can also use the office telephone with.

My fax machine wont send or receive faxes any suggestions?


If it is properly connected to the jack in the machine and the wall, and it won't send OR receive...then it's NOT a simple problem, because nothing else need be done for the machine to at least "send" a fax.

My fax machine will send faxes but not receive them. I have made sure it is plugged in and connected but no faxes will come through. Please Help!


If you have an answering machine, have it answer at three rings. Have the fax answer at five rings. Let the answer machine go thru it's cycle, and see if the fax picks up.

Not receiving any faxes but sending


Note: check your equipment for:
Fax machine must be connected to an answer machine

Receiving a fax automatically:
1 Make sure the Fax Auto Answer light is on.
2 To set the number of telephone rings before the printer automatically receives faxes,
Receiving a fax with an answering machine
When a telephone ring is detected, the answering machine picks up the call.
If the printer detects a fax, it receives the fax and disconnects the answering machine.
If the printer does not detect a fax, the answering machine receives the call.
2 Set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the printer does.
For example, if you set the answering machine to answer calls after three rings, set the printer to answer calls
after five rings.
3 To set the number of telephone rings before the printer automatically receives faxes.
