Can't fax from my HP Laserjet m2727nf.

I am not getting a dial tone and therefore not able to fax. It worked yesterday and several weeks before. I tested another machine and it worked so the jack and phone line are functioning.

On this machine make sure the phone line does work. Have the phone company to make the checks. They make more checks in the line and in there system.
If you can move the machine to that location use it there and see the results.
If the machine does in fact does not work, the modem can cause this type of problem, but also the main board can do it too. First I would replace the modem board, much cheaper. If that does not work, Replace the main board, but it will be very expensive.

Check the phone line with a regular phone.

Make sure you are plugged into the LINE port of the fax.

HP M272 in the control panel says Redial Pending. Cannot fax out but receive incoming faxes.

If you can receive faxes, then your phone line is good.
Try and send a fax to your cell phone or another phone.
You should get a message on the printer screen saying it's dialing and listen for the phone to ring.
And listen for the fax noises.
It's possible the fax module is bad.

When sending fax, I get no dial tone, and the fax get cancelled. Thanks for your help.

Unplug the fax cable from the printer and plug the cable into a telephone. Do you get a dial tone?
If no, call the phone company after you try a different cable.
If yes, plug the wire back into the fax and call that number from a cell phone. If it rings and you get a msg on the printer console saying "incoming fax" , hang up and fax again. Did it ever work?

Purchased yesterday HP LaserJet M2727nf. Everything works except it won't receive faxes. Philip Schwartz, Esq.

Make sure the display says Auto or Fax. It should not say Manual.
Also check to make sure your phone line is plugged into the "Line" port and not the EXT or Phone ports. These are the 2 most common issues with not receiving. Especially on new machines.

Fax issue with HP Laserjet 3055

Hi. The fax-module in lj 3055 needs a 100% analog dial tone. You might get it working on a internet-phone-line, but HP garantees nothing because there are so many internet-phone-providers, and all of them operates with different specs and line-quality. You might try to lower the baud rate, turn off JBIG compession and error-correction. If the problem still remains, you need to replace your phone-line to a 100% analog line. Not any internet or ISDN/adapter-stuff. You should test your fax on any analog line at a friends house, just to make sure the fax i working anway.

Dial tone in fax mode

Is the phone wire from the wall jack plugged into the slot in the back of the machine marked "line" and not "phone"?
