I get a busy signal when calling my home phone. And when I'm home, I can call out only if I unplug the line into my phone jack and call right away. It seems like it doesn't hang up anymore. If I don't reset my phone this way, I'll get a loud beep, beep, beep the next time I try to use it, which sounds like a busy signal from the other end.
Thank you for offering to help, but I think I've actually found the problem myself. I opened up the jack last night and found that one of the white wires was disconnected. I'm not quite sure if this will fix the issue because I didn't have enough time to actually reconnect it, but I have a feeling it just might do the trick. I'll work on it tonight. Thanks again.

unplug all the phones in the house, or go out to the NID (network interface device) on the outside and disconnect the "line" from the "network". It should have a standard modular plug. You should be able to plug a regular phone into that jack and see if the line has cleared. Chances are there's a phone in the house that's partially off-hook.
Unplug the phone line from the machine. Wait a few minutes then try calling your fax number from a phone while leaving the phone line disconnected from the machine. If it rings fine from the phone, then re-install the phone line to the fax machine. Try making the call again. If you now get a busy signal then the modem in your fax machine has gone bad and is holding the line open. Make sure when installing the phone line you are placing the cord into the "line" port on the machine and not the phone port.
Good Luck and thank you for using Fixya.
the "line in use" indicates that there is not enough current on your line, either there is a broken wire and the phone is not getting any current, or there is a short on your line reducing the current on your line.
you should unplug your phone and check with a diffrent phone to see if there is any dial tone on the jack that you have a problem with... if everything is good with a diffrent phone then it is likely that the trouble is your phone, if the trouble still exists, bring a corded phone to the NID outside of your home, and test if there is dial tone there, and that you can make and receive calls... if the trouble goes away, they you need to troubleshoot further inside your home, if the trouble still exists, then you have a trouble outside that your local phone company needs to take care of, and you should contact them so that they can make the repairs..
In the modem there are two link one for the phone and other for the line . In the line link you have to connect the direct phone line and phone link you have get the extent cable, link it and connect it to the phone . try it and porb comes inform to fixya.com
If you are in a private residence go to the demarcation box and unplug the phone jack that connects the line to your home. Plug your phone directly into the jack which is now looking at the line and has eliminated your house wiring from the circuit. Make an outgoing call and have someone call you back. If the trouble persists, the trouble has just been proven to be on the line which is a phone company problem. Busy signals occure when a short is detected on the line so you may have cable trouble in your area. Thank You. Jerry
unplug the fax from the phone line. call it from you cell.if you hear your phones ringing in the house, plug the fax machine back into the jack. [you should still be on your cell phone] if the line goes dead or stops ringing, there is a short with the fax machine or wire to the jack.if you hear a busy signal without the fax plugged in, unplug everything you have plugged into phone jacks thruout the house. call your # again.if you hear ringing on your cell phone, plug everything back in one at a time.[again while still on your cell phone] if it was one of the phones plugged into a jack, when you plug the shorted phone back into the jack, the line will go dead again. that phone or cord is the problem.
if still rings busy when everything is unplugged, then call your phone company. it can be an inside wire or jack problem, or the problem is outside your home.
hope this helps
