It's entirely possible that your fax machine will just miraculously start working again. If it was hooked up to your computer you'd possibly be getting an error message, which when interpreted by its code number, would tell you it's not receiving the phone signals correctly for a period of time but soon will.

Hope I'm right,

Regards,

Hello s_fields75. I just read your problem and was wondering if you checked your cable connections. You stated that you may have hooked it up wrong. I would definitely make sure your cable connections, USB, etc., are correct. The printer is an all-in-one and should just automatically find the connection through your modem for the fax feature. If not, you might need to get a splicer for your phone line (you can pick one up at radio shack for less than $10). Unhook your phone line from the wall jack. Plug in the splicer into the wall jack, then plug the phone cable into one jack and your fax phone cable into the other. That should do the trick. If not, you may need to download an updated driver from emachines or brothers' websites. Hope that helps!

Hp office jet 5610 all in one printer--- am I able to fax without hooking up to a computer if yes how- thanks


All the HP office all-in-ones fax without computer hookup, simply place the fax on the load tray face up until you see the window state that the original is loaded. Then on the number pad dial the fax number you want to connect to, once that is done...press the black fax button and the machine will dial the number, once a connection is made the fax will feed itself through and complete. The only connection needed is an outgoing phone line. Just make sure that the phone line is in the right socket on the back. You will see icons by the sockets, the one with the phone icon is for a line to go to a phone headset....this is not the socket for the main phone line, ise the other one that says "line".

HP officejet all-in-one...keeps saying phone is off of the hook and will not give me a dial tone to fax. Is there a particular setting I need to check ?????


The very first thing to check with a fax machine is that the line itself is OK. The possibilities are much greater that there is a problem with the LINE and not the HP itself.
Hook up a regular telephone to the fax line, disconnecting anything else that may be on the line. If the telephone doesn't have a dial tone, call the phone company. If you DO have a dial tone, then maker sure that the phone line is connected to the correct port on the HP. There are two, usually. One is for the LINE and the other is for an EXTENSION (a phone that is daisy chained off the fax machine). If you have the LINE connected to the EXT port, it may give you this error.
If you have multiple items connected to the same phone line, try removing all of them but one regular phone, and see if you have a dial tone. If so, add the other items back, checking for a dial tone after each one. If one of them causes a lack of dial tone, replace or repair it.

The phone company may tell you that the problem lies in your inside wiring. I have seen that before. You can take your phone out to the telephone service box on the outside of the building. These usually have regular phone jacks in them. Disconnect the jack wire that runs into your house, and connect the regular telephone into the box itself. If you have a dial tone, then there is indeed a problem with the wiring in your building.

I can't fax....HELP


Yes. But your fax machine must be hooked up with a standard phone line to the jack on the wall, or to a computer linked to a standard phone line. You can't simply hook the computer up to a dsl ethernet cable and hook the usb cable up to the printer and expect fax services to work.
Hp has an excellent support site for use with it's printers, available by clicking here Please take a look at this fax set up link by clicking here to make sure the fax is set up properly,and if it is and you're still having difficulty, take a look at the main site solutions section to troubleshoot your particular machine.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take a moment to kindly rate this post....thanks!

Difficulty sending a fax


Hello. Please make sure your telephone line is plugged into the correct outlet.

Most fax machines typically allow you to plug the line (the cord that goes from the fax machine to the wall jack) and and a telephone (the telephone connects to the fax machine).

In order to fax correctly, you must plug the line into the jack with a block (looks like a 'T') marked on it. Do not plug the line into the jack marked with a phone hand set marked on it.

This shoulds in detail how to connect the line properly. For this printer the line cord must be plugged into the jack labelled "L"

Samsung CLX-3160FN Connection error


Let's isolate the problem: disconnect your modem from the wall outlet and connect the Samsung unit DIRECTLY to the wall using the LINE connector (not the TEL connector). If the unit is ok and your telephone line is clear, you should hear the calling tone when the HOOK/DIAL button is pressed. If it works, your theory might be correct, or you were incorrectly connecting the unit to the TEL connector (use the LINE conector instead). After the problem is solved, leave the Samsung unit connected to the wall and connect all others peripherals after it.

 

If the unit is not working after this test, take it to an authorize service center to have the modem (and maybe the power supply) board replaced.

Toshiba e-Studio 350 FAX Communication error


Are you still receiving faxes although you are unable to send? Or is it no send & no receive? When you hook a phone up are you able to connect with a # dialed from that phone. It's possible that the problem is the copiers NCU board- but it's rare that they fail & even more rare that it loses just the send portion. You'll want to be absolutly sure that it's not the phone line. If you are positive that the problem is not the phone line - try turning the machine off & unplugging the power cord for 30 minutes. Occasionally the NCU card will lock up & not function properly. Unplugging the machine for 30 minutes has worked for me in the past.
