Phone line is the top and modem on the bottom. Take a look in the back and where you see the phone symbol that's your phone line.

The fax on my brother MFC-8460N does not work. it does not pick up a dialing tone when sending and on receiving it rings once says receiving bit nothing comes through. Please help


Your modem setting probably is not compabile with the data rate your phone will support.

From the user manual --

If you are having difficulty sending or
receiving a fax due to possible interference
on the phone line, we recommend that you
adjust the compatibility setting to reduce the
modem speed for fax operation

Press a or b to choose Basic or
Normal (or High).
Basic cuts the modem speed to
9600 bps. Unless interference is a
recurring problem on your phone
line, you may prefer to use it only
when needed.
Normal sets the modem speed at
14400 bps.
High sets the modem speed at
33600 bps.
Press OK.
Press Stop/Exit.

The other thing to consider is do you have tone or pulse dial service from your telephone company?

Where do i plug the lines from my 6310 all in one into my modem


On the back lower right of the unit you will see two ports for regular phone lines and one port for en RJ-45 ethernet cable. The phone port are for a phone line to come into to accept faxes through a ground line. If you still have regular phone service, the line coming from the wall outlet goes into the port marked "line" on the back of the All-In-One. The other port on the back of the printer is for a phone line to hook into a portable phone, that way you can answer the phone if there is no fax. The other port, for the ethernet cable goes to the modem or router, however you happen to have it set up.

I have one phone line but I added a special ring service for the fax part of my Officejet J4550 all in one printer. I have hooked it up so phone line goes into printer and out to phone. I also have a dsl...


Did you make sure to set the fax machine for the ring pattern on the fax number? If you skip that step the machine won't pick up. The "distinctive ringing" setup is covered in the manual which you can download here if you've managed to lose your copy.

If the link doesn't work or you don't like to click on a link, here's the URL: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01368521.pdf.

Once you have the machine set for the right ring pattern, have it answer immediately and it will pick up.

Please take a moment to rate this solution a fixya if it's been what you need, and thanks for asking here!

No directions for attaching a phone line to mfc 240c.


small phone line goes from your wall switch to the rear of your ADSL modem, then the fatter wire goes from the modem to the input on the rear of your computer.
If it is wireless modem,,and you have a wireless connection on your computer then it should discover the connection by itself, after hooking all the wires up properly

No filter


There you go. Stop by Radio Shack and pick up a DSL filter and hook it up to the wall outlet of your fax machine. If the DSL modem is next to your fax machine, plug the fax machine into the outlet marked as phone.

I just got done doing this to both of my offices. Typically the phone company will use your fax line to piggyback the DSL. All you have to do is make sure your DSL modem output goes to the fax line either through the wiring block in your office or directly to the back of the modem itself.

That way you won't need the filter.

Hp 7401 all in one will not send a fax it makes a wizzzzzing sound and than reads scanner failure. this machine is a little over 2 years old and seldem used.


If the fax is seldom used, the conditioning of the line could be different or the modem damaged.

Pick up the phone on the unit and see if you can hear a dial-tone, commonly when surges come in through the phone lines and damage the modem component of the printer it can cause this issue and trying to place a call from the device can be a good test.

However, if you can hear the dial-tone using the phone and can call out on your device, it is probably not the modem and is related instead to the line itself.

If your on a company network or have DSL at home remember that faxes typically need dedicated analog lines and that DSL service, IP phones, or digital phone systems will often cause the modem to malfunction.
