Question about Philips IPF-174 Plain Paper Inkjet Fax

Open Question

2 tone dial tone

I can make and receive calls, however my dial tone is a 2 tone sound. My old phone had a single tone before it packed up. I'm on a Virgin Media package and have had to use the suppled Philips SE255 adptor into the phone socket to allow me to make/receive calls as my old small to large phone connector no longer works.

I have no instructions with my phone


1. Plug phone in telephone jack.
2. Wait for it to ring.
3. If it does not ring for 7 days, check for dial tone.
4. When phone rings, lift receiver, put it to your ear and say 'Hello?' politely into the mouthpiece..
5. If it is a telemarketing call, say 'No, thank you' and hung up gently. Slamming the receiver down hard only hurts your new phone. The telemarketer only hears "click".
Avoid yelling and using foul language; this will make the telemarketer very unhappy because he failed to upset you.
6. If after 30 days none of your friends call you, lift receiver, wait for dial tone and dial their numbers using the keypad.
Call them at 4am, preferably on a Monday, and when you hear them, say 'HEY BUDDY!!! GUESS WHO!!!' andmake sure they have your phone number and get them to call you back right away to prove it.

Can't call.continuous tone at the phone when i try to make a call


Check the dial pad keys for a stuck button, if it has a hanset with its own dial pad check it as well.

If you can not locate it, try listening on the line and pushing the dail keys one at a time. you should now hear dual tomes, the one you are causing and the offending tone, when you hit the offending key there will onlt be a single tone as this button is already sounding off.Do not forgrt the special keys(# &*)

Hope this is of some help.

Brother Intellifax 4100 unable to send fax but can receive


Is the fax sensing the paper you put in to send out? Check the little black levers that poke into the document area. They should move freely when you touch them gently with a finger, and return quickly when you take your finger off. If it can't sense the paper it won't try to send a fax. If, when the paper is inserted, the display changes from whatever it said to anything else, the paper is being sensed.
Let's try dialing manually. Just left of the 1 key is a button labeled "Hook." Pressing that will take the telephone line "off-hook," like picking up the receiver of a phone. You should hear a dial tone -- if not, try adjusting the speaker volume with the buttons just right of the numbers. Once you get a dial tone, dial a number, whether it's another fax, or your own cell phone. As far as the phone company is concerned, your fax is just a phone, calling another phone. If you can make a call, and the phone at the other end rings, we're closing in on the problem. If you can dial another fax machine manually, you can still turn this into a fax call, assuming there's paper ready to fax. After the distant fax answers, touch the Start button, and your fax should take over. If you can't dial manually, try unplugging your fax from the phone line, and replacing it with a regular phone. Can you make calls with it? If not, the fax is no longer a suspect - you have a phone line problem.
Are you at a business where you need to dial 9 to get an outside line? It's easy to forget that detail when you're using a fax, but it has to dial out just like any other phone on the system.
If you can't get a dial tone at all with the fax, but it works with the phone alone, the main board in the fax is probably bad. If you can dial manually, using the Hook switch, but the same number doesn't work when you dial xxx-xxxx-Start, that sounds like a main board problem, too.

Problem with my hp 640 fax


once you dial the number you fax will automatically start sending the the Fax signal which sounds like short beeps. This is done so the receivers phone (when answered) will recognized the beeps and switch to fax receive mode.  If you are getting the recording that you mentioned above, that means the number you dialed was not successful in making the connection.  Once you dial the number you should hear the phone ringing followed by some churping noises when the other end answers the call... then other churping and gargle like sounds initially as the fax proceeds.  
sounds like your are having trouble with the number you are dialing.
Hope this helps..

Problem faxing


Unplug the fax at the wall jack and hook up a regular phone. Listen to the dial tone. It should sound like a regular dial tone.

Next, plug the fax back in and call the machine from a regular phone.

You should hear fax tones.

Fax machine wont send or reiceve


Check to see if you have a dial tone. If not, plug a regular home phone into the jack in the wall and see if you can call it or dial out. You might have a dead phone line.

No dial tone, clicking sound


It most likely is the LIU (Line Interface Unit). or you might have it plugged in the wrong port on the fax itself. Make sure it's plugged into the LINE plug. If it's the LIU it would be cheaper to replace then calling for service. Unless it's under warranty still (usually 90 days)
