Where do i look to see why machine isn't calling out to verify card

first check the phone line it self. take all phone lines out of the credit card machine, and unplug the power to machine. now take a telephone with a phone line attached and plug that into wall as if you were making a call on that phone. check for dial tone. if you have a dial tone, make a call. do you require a 8 or 9 to dial out? you terminal may not recognize that.
also if you do have dial tone do you use digital or analog phone lines? you need analog for terminals. if you have a fax line you can connect the terminal to fax via phone line. if this does not work contact phone co and ask what type of lines you have, you can also connect most terminals via Ethernet.

Can't set up dial-up connection

Restart the computer.
Enter BIOS setup.
Click to "disable" both the COM1 and COM2 (or Serial1 and Serial 2) ports.
Save-and-exit from BIOS setup.
Restart Windows.
The modem should now be assigned as 'COM1', and should work.

Lost dial tone and phone service

Your phone line might be connected to Telephone 1 not 2. That could be the reason why you are not getting a dial tone.

My home/land line phone will not get a dial tone

The disconnected message is generated by the telephone company. They should be consulted about that.

The noise and not being able to dial out sounds like a broken wire. If you call the number and the line is broken it should keep on ringing until the telephone company times you out.

It sounds as if you have more than one problem.

After you try some of these things give me some feed back.

No Dial tone using Symantec Winfax Pro 10 on Windows 98

Check the physical connection of the phone line to the computer make sure that it is connected to phone line symbol of the Ethernet adapter. Then make sure that the driver of the adapter is installed properly on the computer or you can try to scan the hardware first before the re-installation of the driver using the adapter.

Dynamode Internal Fax Modem 56K

i had same problem trying to receive faxes until i changed phone connections.

according to a motorola manual (link below) this has something to do with being connected to a "proper analog phone line".

i had the phone line running from wall to a newer gateway (maybe 8 months) dec 07 to a maybe 2 year old compaq. kept getting that loop current error on the compaq when trying to receive a fax until i elimated the gateway connection and plugged the wall right into the compaq.

here's a link that might help:

see section 6, troubleshooting. hope this helps...
