    I can receive faxes but for some reason cannot send them. I have BT Broadband and my phone is connected to the phone line through an adapter. Is this the problem? The instructions say I should have a DSL Filter, but I thought the adapter i had was!

    I'm in a muddle

    Hi gwbm

    Thank you for your response.

    Are you saying I do not have Broadband as I thought I did, especially as I am paying for it! There was no internet connection in this property when I moved in, so as far as I am aware there is no 'Dial-up'.

    I am probably being an idiot with the above, but I am a computer muppet!

This response is a little late, but it's because you all appear to have something other than an Epson C86, under which your problems are listed! Eoromarts problem is super-generic. It could be due to hundreds of reasons ranging from "because I was in Blackpool at the time" to "my wife had borrowed the modem cable for a washing line". Come on, you need to give a lot more information than that!. McFax - your problem is simply not understandable please be much more specific!.

However, we may be able to help Stretchyd who has provided actual information on his problem. You cannot send faxes by Broadband. You need a good old-fashioned dial-up modem (which we all used to use to connect to the internet before broadband). You clearly have one of these, otherwise you wouldn't be able to receive faxes.

So you should have a cable from your Broadband modem to the phone line, going into the broadband (DSL) filter ADSL port. You should also have a cable running from your dial-up modem socket into the broadband filter phone port (you may also have a phone going into this, so you will need a phone socket doubler to take the phone wire and the dial-up modem wire).

So, to send a Fax, you need to run your Fax program (usually the Windows XP fax module) and set up your system for dialling out. If you need help with this post a new connebt.

We have epson bx300f, changed rooms and now have to sit and press buttons on machine to receive faxes where before they would come through automatically. How do I revert back to that setting?

Had a quick look and found that you may have turned off the auto-answer mode.

The way to set it back up is provided on page 5 of this manual:

  1. Press Mode [Copy/Fax] to select Fax mode
  2. Press the up/down arrows to select "5.Fax Settings" then press OK
  3. Use the up/down arrows to select "5.Communication" then press OK
  4. Use the up/down arrows to select "4.Rings to Answer" then OK
  5. Use the up/down arrows to set the number of rings then (yep, you guessed it!) press OK
  6. Press the button for "Auto Answer/Space" (looks like a phone handset with the work "AUTO" next to it) to turn on Auto Answer Mode.
  7. Press OK (for the 4 millionth time it seems!)
  8. Finally, press "Menu" to return to the first screen in Fax mode.
Hopefully that will resolve your problem :)

My Epson bx300f cannot send faxes, just says no dial tone?!!!

ALL fax machines are ANALOG devices and will not work on a DIGITAL PHONE LINE.
