Can you pick up the receiver on the phone and hear the fax tone when receiving? If so, can you then press the start button and begen receiving? If that works, then the fax auto settings are not set properly. Do you have the owners manual? Read the receiving fax section.

When recived fax it half the size of A4 paper.but when i send fax ok.

If you are able to make copies ok, I mean you get a full page of the copy, but when receiving a fax you're getting only half a page that could be a problem with the line. First, let's make sure you have all the settings right. Make sure that you have the phone cable plugged in to the port where it says line at the back of the fax machine with the other end going directly to the wall jack. (If that is a digital phone line that you have, the more that you'll have difficulty in receiving faxes, because fax machines are designed to work on analog phone lines only) Also, try turning Off your Error Correction Mode (could be found either on Basic or Advanced fax settings) If you have an answering machine on the same line with the fax, set it to 2 rings lower than the fax machine's number of rings, that way when a call comes in, the answering machine picks it up first, if a fax tone is heard, fax machine picks up. It is not recommended if you have a voicemail on the same line with the fax, if you do, it's either request to turn it off from the phone company or request for a distinctive ring, then set the distinctive ring by accessing your Advanced fax settings.
If you have all those notes above set, and you're still not being able to receive your faxes, let's check on your line. Try to plug the fax machine to a different wall jack and have someone send you a fax, if you receive the fax, then the wall jack where your fax was previously plugged in to must be faulty. Call your phone service provider for the issue.
If you're still having the same issue with the fax, with it plugged in on a diff wall jack, call the customer care hotline for your product.

Problem: Busy/No Response on all outgoing faxes

Put the document you want to send into the transmit tray, pick up the handset, listen for a dial tone, and then dial the # on the keypad..
It should ring just like any other phone. When the machine on the other end picks up and you hear the tones, press the start button.
Anything other than fax tones on the other end, it is not your faxes fault.

My Mode was wrong. I switched it to telephone and fax (instead of manual). Then i set the ring to pick up on the third ring. now i dont have to be here to press start everytime a fax comes. I found all the information by searching for the manual on line it is under "Basic fax settings"

Can't receive faxes but can send them okay

The easiest thing to check is the recieve mode setting. most of the time when this happens the machine is set on manual recieve. Set it to automatic recieve and you should be fine.

No fax reception

Send will work on any phone lines
fax machines are often set to only answer 'secondary' ring tones, double triple or higher. When the line was repaired the phone company may have dropped the special tone off your secondary fax line number, fax will not answer without that tone.
Check in the fax answer settings, what the ring tone is, specific instruction on menu settings in your user guide,
Ring your fax line, and check the tone.
If single number fax/phone, check that the fax is set to asnwer all calls then pass on non faxes

You can not send or receive faxes with any consistency on Broadband lines. You need an analog telephone line for these to work. Fax machines work on analog technology.

Can not transmit faxes

do you have a seperate fax line? if so check the fax line.
also in the fax menu set up your fax to phone/fax mode, and set up all your fax info.
if you have distinq ring you need to set up your # of rings.

Recieving faxes
  • Plug a regular, non-digital, phone into the fax's phone line and see if you get a dial tone
    • If you do not have a dial tone, seek support from your telephone service provider
  • Dial the fax number from a phone    
    • Normal circumstance is that you will have the fax machine pick up and make high-pitched noises
    • If the fax does not pick up, put a regular phone on the fax line and see if the regular phone rings when dialed
      • If the phone rings, answer it and see if there is line noise
        • If the line is clear, call the service number listed on your fax
        • If the line is staticy or unclear, call your telephone service provider
      • If the phone does not ring, call your telephone service provider
Sending faxes
  • Attempt to dial the fax number you are trying to send to from another phone.
    • If you hear electronic noises on the line, the other end has a fax machine on the other end
      • Check to see if you can recieve faxes.
    • If the remote fax does not answer, the problem is on the remote side, contact the recipient
