I contacted the folks at MagicJack today and for faxes they confirm your findings. They suggest the following: We do not officially support using faxing with MagicJack. Please try the following steps to use MagicJack with your fax (contact your fax vendor for details):
- turn off error correction on your fax machine or program
- set the fax machine or program to use the slowest speed available
- increase the speed, checking at each speed that faxes work

The change must come through your fax machine, not the MJ.

HERE is a link to the manual for your fax machine.




If you are having problems sending or
receiving a fax due to possible interference
on the phone line, we recommend that you
adjust the Equalization for compatibility to
reduce the modem speed for fax operations.
a Press Menu, 2, 0, 2.
b Press a or b to choose Normal (or
Basic).
�� Basic reduces 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. (Default)
Press OK.
c Press Stop/Exit.
Note
When you change the compatibility to
Basic, the ECM feature is only available
for color fax sending.



There are only 2 speed settings. Since the MJ does not support faxing, if the slower 9600 bps does not work, you will be unable to fax with the MJ.


Thanks for using FixYa - A FixYa rating is appreciated!!

FAX MACHINE WILL NOT WORK WITH MAGIC JACK


Magic Jack will work with fax machines. You may have to experiment by slowing down the fax machines modem transmits speed. This is done in the machines menu.

The Magic Jack manual is quite clear, it can handle faxing.

My epson fax machine is hooked to magic jack and every time I try to send a fax, I get: communication error 0404


Can I fax using Magic Jack? This is a popular question. They do not support faxes, but the answer is yes. You may need to do some tweaking. However, not much tweaking. First, turn off error correction on your fax machine or program. Then, set the fax machine or program to use the slowest speed available. The slowest speed will ensure a fax goes through. You may increase later to find the highest speed at which a fax can be received.

Machine not sending information.


Yes, most definately so. There are ways to boost the output signal of your machine but these days nobody has had to do it because lines are much clearer in the western hemisphere. The Magic Jack is great for voice calling but the faxes need instant responses from each other to progress through the initial training protocol and onto the document transmission. You may, if you have one, try another magic jack. It could be down to your particular Magic Jack. Try faxing without the Magic Jack.

Using MagicJack for faxing; however, Brother MFC 290C is stating poor line condition - why? Also say's low ink Magenta - would that create this problem?


I had the same problem trying to send out faxes out using my Brother MFC 7340. I use a magic jack phone line. Page 106 of the user manual says if sending via VOIP phone line, you should press menu, then 2, 0, 1 to select "Basic (for VOIP) mode. Then press ok. Then press stop/exit. This cuts the modem speed down to 9600 bps and turns ECM off. Then retry to send the fax. I did that and can now send and receive faxes.
