When a phone line is connected to the fax/printer it immediately shows that the phone is 'off-hook'. I cannot send a fax because the machine think's it's off the hook.

Having trouble faxing on my lexmark 4650 wireless printer. i keep getting connection failed status. i use a verizon mifi220 for my internet connection... can anyone help?


If I'm not mistaken, the fax on your unit still uses the phone line to fax, not the internet, so you'll need to connect an RJ-11 phone cord from the unit to a phone jack in order to send faxes from it.

When I hit hook to send a fax I hear a click but I get no dial tone and the same on receiving a fax MP830


You only hit hook to hear the dial tone or use the machine like a speaker phone. To send a fax you press fax start. If you can't hear a dial tone when you press hook, there is something wrong with the phone line connection, or it's plugged in to the wrong plug on the machine. The phone line goes into the one marked with an L, the other with the pic. of a phone is for an additional telephone.

Machine shows "phone off hook"


Hi there

check where your phone cale goes into the machine you will proberbly find two sockets one marked phone and one marked line the phone line needs to go into the one marked line and a phone handset in the one marked phone if this is correct try ringing yor line that the fax is plugged into see if you get a ring or engaged tone if you are getting engaged unplug the fax and try again if this now works the chance is that the modem board in your fax has failed and will require replaceing

Difficulty sending a fax


Hello. Please make sure your telephone line is plugged into the correct outlet.

Most fax machines typically allow you to plug the line (the cord that goes from the fax machine to the wall jack) and and a telephone (the telephone connects to the fax machine).

In order to fax correctly, you must plug the line into the jack with a block (looks like a 'T') marked on it. Do not plug the line into the jack marked with a phone hand set marked on it.

This shoulds in detail how to connect the line properly. For this printer the line cord must be plugged into the jack labelled "L"

This will show you how to actually send the fax. On your PDF View select page 42.

Can't send a fax.


You need to have a phone line not just internet connection to send a fax. Unless you have an account with a fax to email company. So you need to hook your fax machine up to your already exsisting phone line, get a seperate phone number for fax purposes or serch the internet for a fax via email company.

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)
