    I solved my own problem. I used the telephone line from the old fax machine to trouble shoot & the new fax machine worked. Then I hooked the new line back in & it is working fine now. Don't ask me what happened. Seems like the line was open for some reason, but the other lines down stairs were working fine.

Why can't I send or receive faxes after installing ink cartridges?


First make sure that you can print, then do simple things first check cables and check settings. Do you get a dial tone? Are you getting a dial-tone when sending. pick up the phone and see if you can dial out. Refer to the manual on automatic send and receive faxes.

Fax problem


I want to make sure I understand this completely. You get no dial tone from the fax machine when hooked up to VOIP. In the past, was there an audible dial tone from the fax, or did it just dial silently and give you an error if there was no tone? When you said you got a dial tone by connecting a phone to the ext phone port of "the machine" did you mean the fax machine? If you get a dial tone by running a phone through the fax machine, then the line is good. I have used a fax machine over Sunrocket before they went defunct, which used the same technology base as Vonage - so it should work. If you used to get an audible dial tone when using the fax, and no longer do, and you are geting a dial tone on a regular phone that is connected to the ext. port of the fax machine, then the problem has to be in the fax machine itself, not the VOIP. If you can verify that, we can go from there.

On 6-4-2012 could send fax, now 6-07-2012 can't send or recievsed fax


Please check the settings on the fax machine. check the line to the fax and also the connectors, check using a phone to hear the dial tone.
If this seems good check if the fax dials the call, if not check the settings for pulse or tone and reset. If there is not dialling then the fax machine has problems that are serious which might need careful probing.

Hi i have a brother called MFC 8660DN, he is not recieving or sending any fax since this morning and i can't find the problem.


Try these things below to narrow down the problem.
  1. Plug a standard phone into where the fax line is plugged into to check for dial tone. if you have dial tone try replacing the phone line between the wall and fax. If not you have a phone line issue.
  2. Make sure the printer is actually responding to print commands from a computer, this could indicate a hardware issue if it does not.
  3. Check the ink levels. If the printer thinks it is out of ink then it will not print faxes.
I hope this points you in the right direction Regards GM

Cannot get dial tone brother mcfc5890cn


Make sure your cord is good. If possible, plug in a good phone in the phone outlet on the fax machine itself. Also try calling the fax machine from another phone. If the machine responds to the call, then there is an internal problem with the fax machine.

Here a dial tone, machine dials number, then hear some sort of voice telling me to try dialing again.Brother mfc 5440cn


tnbdesigns,
The number that you are calling is no good. You can test your own fax machine by calling a number for you , like your cell. The voice that you are hearing is the automatic telephone company voice telling you that the number is bad.

Fax machine stoped receiveing fax


First, check your fax's phone line. Put a regular phone on it and check for dial tone and line noise. If the line is dead or noisy, this will cause a problem. 
You can also try dialing your fax number from another phone and see if the fax unit picks up the line and starts initiating communication. (sounds like modem noises)

FAX function stopped working


honestly, it sounds like you have the phone cord and the fax jack swapped backwards, make sure you have the fax line plugged into the correct jack on the machine. 1 is for the handheld phone and the other is for the telephone line... give this a shot...
