Hello I have a dell 966 all in one printer scanner copier and fax. Well I connected my fax, have the phone line connected properly, tried both the fax slot on the 966 and the phone slot on the 966, I receive an error message of problem with phone line. I've notified verizon and nothing is wrong with the phone line. Is there anything I need to do special to receive and send message on this 966.

Do you have a DIGITAL phone line? Fax machines only work on ANALOG phone lines.

I have a Dell 966 AIO printer. All of the functions of the printer are working correctly, however, many of the phones in my home have ceased ringing. All are live and calls can be placed and received,...


Setup should look like...


Wall > ISP Modem/Router > Wireless router(if any) > Wired/wireless


If using DSL, a DSL Filter MUST be on ALL devices, phone, answering machine, faxes, etc..., everything EXCEPT the DSL Modem/Router.


You may share a DSL Filter.


Wall > DSL Filter > Splitter > Multiple Devices

Where to plug in the phone line for the fax


You don't plug a phone line into this printer. It's not a fax machine itself. According to the user's guide (which you can download here), "To send a fax using this printer, you need to have the printer attached to a computer that is equipped with a modem and has Microsoft Fax installed."

What this means is that the printer is just serving as the input (scanner) and output (printer) parts of a stand-alone scanner, but you need your computer to connect to the phone line. Without the computer modem and Microsoft Fax software, your printer is, well, just a printer, with scanning capability.

Sorry! Thanks for using Fixya.

On lexmark 7170 printer-when trying to fax-always get ''phone line error''-- connection is good from directline--phone works- Can't fax even without using pc I am using a Lexmark7170 printer with windows...


Hello. The "phone line error" usually comes up when the printer/fax is not connected properly to the fax line. Try to check behind the printer. There are two phone ports - Ext. and Line. The telephone cable should be plugged in to the Line port of the printer and the other end should go straight to the phone jack in the wall. If it is, try to use a different phone cable. Also, make sure that you assigned the correct fax number in your printer. Hope this helps.

Every time I send a fax from my Dell 966, a black stripe appears down the middle. All photocopying/printing is operating normally, its just the fax that won't work! How do I fix this?


its quite possible the area that scans the paper(s) you are sending is dirty.
If the machine is one of those phone/fax/scanner/copier jobs, simply open the top panel, and with a damp cloth, wipe the runners that feed the paper through from left to right or right to left (just make sure any dirt you're wiping goes off to one side)
its also possible that a paper (that white-out was used on) that has been recently faxed, left some white out on the feeders
