Not able to phone out from extension phone

I'm stuck with this problem and have tried things including resetting to factory settings. I have a home telehone system with the fax being the first device on the line. I also have a panasonic cordless telephone plugged in to the same socket -serial connection I belive. When I try to telephone out using the cordless phone it rings but when the person picks up the line gets cut off! Any suggestions?

You may have had a power outage or surge that defaulted all your set-up info and fax settings to factory settings; or even possibly damaged the circuit board.

Reset printer

On your printer, go to the settings menu -> factory defaults.

Do not restore - this is the factory default setting. Do not restore keeps the user defined settings.

Restore - returns all printer settings to the factory default settings except the Network/Ports menu settings. All downloads stored in RAM are deleted.

Ok im trying to transfer my work phone to my cell phone so i can go home and not have to sit up here all night. and i cant figure out how to do it.

  1. Pick up the receiver on your work phone and wait to hear a dial tone.
  2. Dial *72 on your work extension phone keypad. You may hear a series of four beeps that indicates the system is ready for you to enter the phone number to which your calls will be forwarded.
  3. Enter your cell phone number including the area code on the keypad of your work extension phone.
  4. Hang up the receiver on your work phone.
  5. Test the call forwarding by dialing your work extension phone from another phone. Your cell phone should ring. If it does not ring , repeat Steps 1 through 4.

why are you trying to factory reset. I don't believe there is, but you check by pressing your data registraion key and check user settings then hit the set key when/if you find it there.

Thank You,

90 percent of the time that is a phone line issue.
But, first thing to look at is see if someone has removed the phone line and placed the line into the extension of phone jack and not the one marked "line"
You may simply need to replace the phone line between the machine and jack.
Yes you may hear a dial tone, etc etc, but you are losing one of 3 things. Either some of the phone line voltage, phone line current or what is called decibel loss.
When you send, you make the phone connection like lifting the phone off the receiver, but the signal to receive must be strong enough for it to key the fax board modem to receive.
If you have another device plugged in on the same phone line. Try removig that item, ex, an answering maching, Credit card machine etc and see if it is interfering with receiving also.
There is a high percentage the phone line is the issue.
Some things to check on the machine itself. Make sure Junk Fax setting is OFF, Make sure ECM ( error correction mode) is ON. Make sure Secure Receive is OFF and manual receive is OFF. Those will be in your machine setups.
The Junk fax setting will stop almost all incomming faxes.
It is less likely a software corruption issue. But that is remotely possible.
Let me know please, Some other obsecure things that can cause this. But I think you will find one of the posted things will resolve your issue.

Can I use this fax on a telephone line together with a GE 2.4 GHz Cordless Telephone (Model 27992B)? Will it be possible to recive messages and faxes when no one is at home? Remark: The answering machine...

sure u can: Installation with an answering machine and/or extension telephone: 1. Remove the seal covering the TEL. SET jack on the rear of the fax. Connect an extension telephone or answering machine to the TEL. SET jack. 2. If desired, connect an extension phone to the answering machine. from the user Fax guide: If desired,you can also connect an answering machine or an extension telephone to your fax. ¨ Connecting an answering machine to the fax will allow you to receive both voice and fax messages on the same line while you are out. For details on using this feature, see Chapter 7. (Note: Do not connect an answering machine to your fax if you will be using the distinctive ring feature described in Chapter 2.) ¨ You can connect an extension phone to the fax to make and receive calls like any other extension phone on your line.
