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!!

I brouth a magic jack i hooked it up to my hp l7680 but it will not fax how can i take care of this problem and get it to fax


Sometimes. Do you have dial tone on the TEL jack of the fax machine?
If that works and you can call the number and the fax machine answers, then check out the MJ instructions for turning off error correction and reducing the transmit rate. http://service.liveperson.net/hc/s-61732089/cmd/kbresource/kb-4965204290225941324/view_question!PAGETYPE?sf=101133&sn=2&documentid=345400&action=view

How can i use my fax with magic jack.using lexmark X2350


This is the answer that I got from the FAQ page.
SOMETIMES.
We do not officially support using faxing with magicJack.
Please try the following steps to use magicJack with your fax (contact your fax manufacturer for details):
  1. Turn off error correction on your fax machine or program
  2. Set the fax machine or program to use the slowest speed available
  3. Increase the speed, checking at each speed that faxes work
It seems that it depends upon the faxing unit that you use.

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.

Using MagicJack with Network ''all in one'' Printer/Fax


MagicJack does not work with all fax machines. If you can find it you must turn off ECM or error correction mode. Also select the slowest transmission speed possible. If you have the manual for it you should be able to find the settings in there.

Trouble faxing through majic jack


Magic Jack is a DIGITAL phone line. ALL fax machines are ANALOG devices. It will not work reliably.

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.

Faxing problem


1) Plug a single line wired (not cordless) phone in to the exact same phone jack as the fax machine and dial one of the fax numbers you are trying to dial out to using the exact same digits. Does the call complete Y/N? do you hear a fax tone Y/N?
>>>>If either answer is "No" you have an invalid phone number. If both answers are "Yes" proceed to step 2.

2) When you off hook do you hear a "stutter" dial tone? Y/N?
>>>>>"Yes" This is your phone company telling you that you have unlistened voicemail messages in your mailbox. Dial in to your voice mail and clear your messages. "No" go to step 3.

3) 2 part question: Do you have call waiting and is your fax machine trying to disable call waiting when dialing out?
>>>>>In many areas *70 (star-seven-zero) will disable call waiting for a single phone call. If you try to disable call waiting when call waiting is not on the line, the call will not complete. This may come in to play in a speed dial situation.
+++Other things to consider+++
*Is outgoing long distance blocked on the line?
*Is outgoing regional intralata (same area code) long distance blocked?
*Is local calling blocked?
*Is a speed dial misprogrammed? Forgot to dial "1" Dialed "1" in error?
*Is there a wiring problem? >>>Try moving fax machine to a different phone jack.

There may be no magic answer for your problem, I hope one of these suggestions helps.
