You already have the filter if you have both phone and internet on the same line. The installer placed the filter between the lines the phones connect to and the outside line the computer connects to. Just connect the fax line to any working phone jack.

My internet service is via telephone line - I think this is the problem - but hoping there is a solution.


It can work. If it is dial up service you can not send or receive a fax while online and vice versa. If it is DSL you may need a DSL filter either from you internet provider or a store like Walmart, Best Buy, or any store with computer accessories. You can check with your internet service provider to see which kind of service if you aren't sure and if you need a DSL filter for your fax.

I've changed my internet providers and have gone from a cable internet svc to a dsl phone line provider. Now my computer fax machine says it is offline. Is there a setting that I need to change?


Most likely cause is you don't have a dsl filter on your fax line. Without the filter, your fax machine's modem can't discern between a dsl signal and a telephone signal Since the telephone line coming into the building is now carrying a dsl signal, a filter is necessary to receive/send faxes.

Our Epson Sylus CX9400Fax Series is not receiving or sending faxes. We have already done the phone call to India thing for 90 minutes. All settings were changed and tested. They are now back to factory...


Ok, here's a check list for you.
SENDING

Check the following:

  • Make sure the phone cable is connected correctly and verify that the phone line works by connecting a phone to it.


  • Make sure that your recipient's fax machine is turned on and working.


  • If you connected the Epson Stylus CX to a DSL phone line, you must install a DSL filter to the line or you won't be able to fax. Contact your DSL provider for the necessary filter.


  • If your phone line has static or other noise problems, turn off the ECM (Error Correction Mode) setting and try faxing again.

    Follow these steps to turn off the ECM setting:

    1. Press Setup.


    2. Select Fax Settings, then press OK. You see this screen:

    4. Select Communication, then press OK.


    5. Press cp_button_44_er.gif and select ECM. Then press cp_button_42_er.gif and set it to Off.


    6. Press OK.



RECEIVING


Try the following if you can't receive a fax:

  • Make sure the phone cable is connected correctly and verify that the phone line works by connecting a phone to it.


  • To receive faxes automatically, make sure the Auto Answer light is turned on. To turn it on, press the Auto Answer/Space button.

  • If your phone line has static or other noise problems, turn off the ECM (Error Correction Mode) setting and try faxing again.

    Follow these steps to turn off the ECM setting:

    1. Press Setup.


    2. Select Fax Settings, then press OK. You see this screen:

Lexmark x6150 unalbe to fax phone line is active using dsl


Hey Tony - Did you recently hook this up to the DSL for the first time? This unit is supposedly not able to work with a DSL line.

The fax modem in your AIO is an analog device and cannot be used on an ISDN, DSL, or PBX digital phone service. However, you can connect certain devices to your AIO that let you use the fax function in addition to these digital phone services.

To connect without an unsupported line:
Connect an active telephone cable from the AIO to the telephone wall jack.

To connect with an unsupported line:
If you use an ISDN phone service, you can connect to an analog telephone port (an R-interface port) on an ISDN terminal adapter.
For more help and to request an R-interface port, contact the ISDN provider.
If you use a DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) phone service, you can connect to a DSL filter or router that will allow for some analog (rather than digital) use.
If you use a PBX phone service, you can install an analog phone line for a fax machine.

If this was working on the DSL let me know. I don't know the location but obviously a separate phone jack is the easiest. Let me know. If this helps you fix it you can rate this as fixed. If you are just going to rate this as helpful I'd rather you please not rate it and just add a comment and say thanks for the info.
If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be glad to assist you further. Thanks.

Cannot send out faxes


Directly from the wall, phone line should be connected to to Line port at the back of the printer and answering machine should be connected to EXT. port from the back of the printer. Make sure on the fax setting on the printer that you have all the info already ( ur number and stuffs), communication setting on the printer, drd set to all, ecm to off, v.34 to off, rings to answer 6 and dial tone detection to off. and answering machine distinctive ring pattern should be set to 4rings.

And since you are using DSL make sure that line from wall should have a filter then connect it to LINE port at the back of printer...

Cx9400fax


Epson Quick Guide is incorrect.

Not sure of your exact situation but .........
Your answering machine MUST be connected directly to the output of your CX9400 and you can't use an answering machine with multiple "mailboxes". Set your answering machine to 4 and your CX9400 to 5/6 rings. Epson "Technical Support" has no clue of this problem .... yet.

The machine routes the call to your answering machine, it it's an incoming FAX and the answering machine starts the CX9400 will recognize the incoming transmit signal, turn on the FAX function, and disconnect your answering machine.

You may need to adjust the CX9400 rings setting based upon the duration of your answering machines announce message (longer message = greater number)

Sending a fax by DSL requires one of two methods: 1. You obtain a DSL line filter suitable for connecting a standard voice telephone to the DSL line, then connect an analog fax modem to the line through the line filter. 2. You hire an Internet E-faxing service. See · http://www.slipstick.com/addins/services/fax.htm#internetfax · http://www.slipstick.com/addins/services/fax.htm · http://www.savetz.com/fax Tim
