My dell 948 printer can send faxes but doesn't receive

I am using my dell 948 as a stand alone fax. It sends faxes ok, but when I receive a fax, I hear the ring tone through the fax, but nothing else happens. The sender gets a "no answer" message.

SOURCE: canon mx310 fax noise

Ok, I think I have found a solution.

I have read all the posts on the net and with no success I decided to go againts the grain.

After I set all data to default:

Set printer to "Fax priority mode" and set Ring count up to enough that you have time to pick up.

It rings the amount of rings you set it to and then makes a beep sound in the caller's side. It then continues to ring on the printer and asks you to press stop if you want to use handset.

I am still testing this.

Do you have a DIGITAL phone line? Fax machines only work on ANALOG phone lines.

Where to plug in the phone line for the fax


You don't plug a phone line into this printer. It's not a fax machine itself. According to the user's guide (which you can download here), "To send a fax using this printer, you need to have the printer attached to a computer that is equipped with a modem and has Microsoft Fax installed."

What this means is that the printer is just serving as the input (scanner) and output (printer) parts of a stand-alone scanner, but you need your computer to connect to the phone line. Without the computer modem and Microsoft Fax software, your printer is, well, just a printer, with scanning capability.

Sorry! Thanks for using Fixya.

Need to know abt fax


HP.com has a web page that talks about the different ways you can send a fax from this product:

Faxing Overview

In general, the fax machine in the all-in-one product doesn't need a computer to work. It works just like a stand alone fax machine. You shouldn't have to scan anything in from the scanner in order to fax. Just put the sheet of paper you want to fax into the product's feeder and follow the fax instructions (see the link I posted above).

As long as the product has electric power and is connected to a phone jack, it should work out OK.

As far as legal papers, if you mean legal sized papers, it should work as long as the product supports the paper size you want to use. You can get that on the product specifications web page at HP.

Product Specifications

Once that page opens, go to the Faxing specifications and Paper specifications sections for the relevant details. Good luck.

Using a calling card for a long distance fax


It will surely help if you are using a calling card that has a pinless dialing feature where you don't need to dial your pin. I use Onesuite.com calling card and it has that feature and sending a fax through regular fax machine is easier than having to dial your pin midpoint.

HP officejet 7210 fax error


HP Officejet 7210 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Error code: 405

When I send a fax I have a dial tone and the fax feeds through, I hear the other end answer it says it is sending and then I get the printed page that says: "A communication error occurred during the fax transmission."
