Re: Sending Faxes

This could be a cable fault. Get BT to do a line test for you (this is free). If that is OK, change the telephone cable. Perhaps this is on an extention cable? Remove it.

I have a Brother mfc 290c. My problem is it won't send faxes, it keeps saying "no response, busy" I have a duet line. I have tried every combination in the book but still can't seem to find the solutions...

If you get the "busy/no response" message it is because the fax machine does not get a response when it tries to dial out.
Make sure you have a dial tone by pressing the "hook" button. If you do not have a dial tone, make sure the phone line is connected to LINE on the machine.
If you have a dial tone, try dialing the fax number. If you hear a recording, there is a problem with the line.
One of these two possibilities is causing the problem.

Problem: Busy/No Response on all outgoing faxes

Put the document you want to send into the transmit tray, pick up the handset, listen for a dial tone, and then dial the # on the keypad..
It should ring just like any other phone. When the machine on the other end picks up and you hear the tones, press the start button.
Anything other than fax tones on the other end, it is not your faxes fault.

The person you are sending to has a busy phone line.

Call your cell phone from the fax machine to test.

Can't send out fax

the number you called does not answer or busy-you may have reached a number not connected to fax or it is connected and not activated in receiving mode-check the number and call again.
if you have a message "out of memory"there is no enough memory available to send your stop/exit print the faxes stored in the memory to delete them then try again.

Sending and receiving faxes

Do you have an analog phone line or are you trying to run it through a PBX system? I was just having this discussion with RKS tech support. Their fax software was hanging up as soon as the connection was established and all I had available was a VOIP phone line. It took 4 tries but I found a US Robotics fax/modem that worked fine in class 2.0 mode.

We can't send or received faxes

Just a suggestion. This effect can happen if you have plugged the line cord into the tel jack instead of line jack.
