Unable to Fax. Poor line condition

I Have had this occur on several occasions while trying to fax with a brother fax machine.Sometimes this message will occur if there is a storm or bad weather were the fax transmission signal sometimes seems to be disrupted by storms or bad weather.Wait until the storm or bad weather has dissipated,as this has helped in the past.Also,to help the problem,make sure there are not several members in the household logged on to their computers at the time you are trying to send a fax. I have found that if a computer is on or connected,the message appears frequently with the brother fax machine.To help solve this problem,I make sure no one is connected to the internet,and it works every time.I have noticed this helps the fax reception when I had the same message regarding poor line condition.Make sure any and all other phones that may be on a handset are properly hung up on the base station.Also,try unplugging and then plugging the fax line cord back into the wall,these above steps I have used for years and I also live in a hurricane state.All the above steps have helped with the fax transmission.I hope this is helpful.Carrie

Machine does not work - no power / power to wall socket / had storms last night, all other appliances work

Unlikely to have been storm affected. Have you tried it in another wall socket ?? If so and it still dead, death may have been just a coincidence.

Check with supplier to see if it has replaceable internal fuses OR have it serviced - first consider service costs v cost of new machine.

Siren goes off sporatically. We had to unhook the car battery to make it stop last night. The fuse is ok.

to stop at night you must cut the earth cable from siren, after that take the car at service to cek the wire and the contacts of alarm.

No picture, siren type noise as restarting

My Toshiba dlp 62hm116 was used for 3 months then stored for 2 years, I turned it on yesterday and it makes a loud grinding noise which I think is probably from the exhaust fan area and the picture is black except white at both vertical sides. It worked fine the last time I used it 2 years ago. Any ideas?

Only displays bars when you power up`

No surge protector is going to stop a lightning strike. It's just way too powerful.
1. Make sure you've unplugged, waited 10 seconds, plugged it back in. That's more than the on/off button does.
2. If your PC will communicate with the printer at all, Lexmark has a program that will reset it. It's located here:

Good luck!

Fax machine rings when I call out using another phone connected to same line

My phone does the same thing but only when it storms. Click website link. Maybe I should get one. I know it says for DSL noise but it also cuts down on cross connection noise.

Power outage last night. Deleted all saved voicemail messages. when turned on - machine says "no massages" How do I retrieve lost messages?

I'm sorry there isn't. Answering machines like this have very little ROM memory. After a powersurge and outage like last night, it wiped the whole memory chip. You can try there support page. It's actually pretty good.
