Fax-like noise when answering catch a call!

Despite checking everything I can think of and then some, when I answer an on-line call all I get is a shrieking, fax-like noise. The unit is brand-new and hooked up correctly, so what gives?

If you have a catch a call max, this happens because the catch a call is too sensitive to the phone company's signal, you can lower the sensitivty of the catch a call by dialing ###3. You can get the catch a call max manual here

Before I moved, my Lexmark all-in-one printer worked perfectly, but after I moved, everything worked EXCEPT printing of an incoming fax. Everything sounds the same through the sounds the telephone makes as...


Please go through the following checklist:
  • Make sure to plug the telephone fax line from the phone jack in the wall to the Line port on the back of your printer. For more info, please refer to the Lexmark X125 User's Guide.
  • If you have an answering machine connected to the same fax line, be sure to configure it so that it answers first before the fax machine (e.g. if your answering machine picks up on the 3rd ring, set your fax to pick up on the 6th ring or more)
  • If the line has a voicemail feature, disable it or request for a distinctive ring from your phone company.

Hi my machine wont send or recieve a fax despite being properly connected. printing from computer is fine. has worked fine up until today


Hi check the following article to from HP
Problems with sending and receiving FAX

HP FAX ISSUES


Check the TELEPHONE LINE

Make sure that you have plugged the phone cord directly and securely into the wall jack and into the back port of the fax product. The fax port on your product is marked "Line," "To Wall Jack," or with a wall jack symbol.

Check LIU

Make sure the Line Interface Unit (box that the phone cord plugs into) is fully seated into the back of the fax product.

Remove the SPLITTER

Remove any other devices from the line such as splitters, credit card machines, or telephone answering machines.


Can try sending the Fax on Another Line


CHECK WITH DIFFERENT CABLE
Try using a different telephone cord.

Fax answer phone line


You set the machine up in the answer/fax mode, when a fax is coming in you have to press 9 on the phone to make it receive the fax if you pick up the receiver when it is a fax call.
You can also change the number of rings to answer a fax, I think the max is 7 rings.

My model Kodak 5500 printer/fax


Just found your post and I'm having the same problem. Everything else seems to be working correctly. I can copy, scan, print and I THINK I can send a fax correctly, I should have called the person and made sure it arrived. However, I cannot receive faxes. I have an answering machine on the line, but it is not plugged into the Kodak Pinter, it is in another room. The answering machine answered the call, the FAX noise came across, but the Kodak Printer never picked it up and printed out the fax. I think I have all the settings correct, but the instructions are not very clear. Do you think I HAVE to have the answering machine plugged into the Kodak Printer? That doesn't make sense, but I might try it.

Cant send fax


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

All calls go directly to fax. Calls don't go to answering machine. I can't answer calls manually to speak with caller.


You seem to have chosen the correct answering mode which is ans/fax.Also pls check whether DRPD mode is correctly set .
It should be off in case your tel line does not have dual ring feature.

happy faxing
