We cannot recieve or send faxes


Make sure that the printer is connected to an active phone line and the phone cable is connected to the correct port. If it's plugged in straight to the wall jack, the cable should be connected to the line port.

Please check the User's Guide for your printer on how to properly setup your fax: http://images.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/2007/x26x-x36x/html/en/index.html

Using a toshiba e-studio 190f fax machine, i can not recieve a fax or send a fax. I call the line and it just rings, can youhelp


Make sure you have the phone line plugged in, also make sure it's plugged into the LINE port on the machine. (Ext. is for a extension, i.e. secondary phone for manual dialing)
Also check that the wall jack is functional too, easiest way to do this is hook up a regular phone to the jack and if you get a dial tone you know it's okay.

If the wall jack is getting a dial tone and the line is plugged into the LINE port you may have a bad phone cable, try a different one.

Can i connect a phone to another room to the machine , if so which one do i plug the phone into and which one do i plug the one from the wall?.....there are two places to plug them into.......one says...


The "Line" jack is the one for the Telephone line over which you send the fax's.
There should also be a jack marked "ext tel" or possibly "ext phone"...this is the one into which you plug the telephone.

Fax will not recieve but will send fax


what does the display reed. To receive fax automatically the display needs to reed
( fax mode or auto ) . If in the manual mode you need to pick up the receiver listen for the tones then press start.

make sure the phone cord from the wall jack is from the wall to the line connection MOT THE EXT. CONNECTION on the fax ( nothing in between the wall & fax )

hope this works

Won't recieve a fax


Normally a receive problem is in the phone line. I will explane so you understand why I am saying this and not excusing the machine.
For starters as a resoution, make sure your phone line is plugged into the line slot and not a slot for a phone or answering machine. The slots I am talking about are on the fax machine.
Also if you have the fax on the same phone line with another device. An answering machine, a credir card reader, etc etc, make sure there isn't a conflict. Try just plugging the fax machine into that phone line.
Now to explane. When you send a fax, you manually turn on the phone line when you tell it to fax, Pressing that button energises a relay and just like picking up your phone receiver you turn the phone line on phisically.
When you receive a fax, it has to have the proper signal to electronically activate the fax/modem board.
Issues can be as simple as a bad phone cord between your fax machine and wall jack. They do build up resistance and cause problems.
3 issues are needed to receive a fax. The phone line Voltage must be correct, the phone line current must be high enough and there must not be a decibel loss.
A good example is a remote controle. You have old batteries. Well if you measured the voltage, it would still be 1.5 volts, but it can not deliver anough current to change a channel or adjust the volume all the time. If the line voltage is right, and your phone line it having a problem, it can't deliver enough current to turn on the fax, like turning on a TV with a remote, there is just not anough total power to activate it.
Remove everything else but the fax from the phone line, try it then.
Replace the cord between the machine and wall jack, Try it then.
If that doesn't correct it have the phone company test your line to the house, if thats ok, then repalce your wall jack.
99 percent of the time a phone line will be a problem.

Fax not sending


It sounds like you have a problem with your phone line. If your machine has a reciever, pick it up or press the hook key. You want to listen to the dial tone. If there is any static in the line it will cause faxc problems. Also you can try disconnecting the fax and plugging in a standard phone into the wall jack. Make a phone call and aee if the line is clear or if there is static. If you do hear static in the line, first try replacing the phone line cord, from the wall to the fax, or phone. If that doesnt help then it is definatly a problem with the line and you must call the phone co. If the line is clear with the standard phone, and static with the fax reciever, or hook mode, then you may have a bad modem board in the fax. Let me know if I can be of further help! John

Problem with fax


I'm no expert but, did you try touching the online or hook button on the fax to hear the dial tone? Or connect a basic home phone into the phone jack at the wall the fax was plugged into. Do you get a dial tone. If no dial tone, call the phone company. If there is a dial tone, its the fax.
