SOURCE: fax line stays busy continously...

Are there any other phones that use that line? If you have a phone attached to the fax machine, is the reciever in the holster all the way?

SOURCE: Fax line is busy

check the hand set is correctly seated on its cradle.
Check the Hook button on the front of the machine.
Disconnect the fax machine from both the phone and power lines for several minutes, reconnect and try again.

We cannot receive faxes. Gives a busy signal.


Unplug the phone line from the machine. Wait a few minutes then try calling your fax number from a phone while leaving the phone line disconnected from the machine. If it rings fine from the phone, then re-install the phone line to the fax machine. Try making the call again. If you now get a busy signal then the modem in your fax machine has gone bad and is holding the line open. Make sure when installing the phone line you are placing the cord into the "line" port on the machine and not the phone port.
Good Luck and thank you for using Fixya.

Can send fax but cannot receive fax. cannot copy


With your cell-phone, dial the telephone-number for the FAX interface.
Does your cell-phone "ring", or do you get an "intercept" ("this number is not in service") or do you get a "busy" signal?

Does the FAX "answer" after one ring? two rings? three rings? does it NOT answer?

When I fax it says phone off hook. I get a message stating no answer.


Try dialing the FAX-number with your cell-phone.
Do you hear the "ring", or does the telephone-company give you a "busy" signal ?

Some FAX machines are "busy" -- receiving many FAXES from multiple customers -- reprogram your FAX machine to "retry" a few times.

Or, when a receiving FAX runs out of paper, it sometimes refuses to accept "new" faxes.

Companies trying to fax to our office tell us that our fax number is "BUSY" but the faxes we receive "failed" and nothing is printed.


Take a cell-phone, and dial the telephone-number that you are giving to your customers. Does it ring? Does the FAX "pick-up" the call?
Or, do you get a "busy" signal?

It sounds like Tel/Fax mode is not set, but that the machine is likely in Fax Only mode. The JX200 has four modes of fax receipt - Fax/Tel, Manual, Answering Machine, and Fax Only. The Fax/Tel mode, which you have indicated is your desire, is meant to let the fax machine automatically switch between fax and voice calls. Documents are received automatically, and the machine rings for voice calls.

Set the mode by pressing [Receive Mode/Resolution]. Every time you press [Receive Mode/Resolution], the mode changes cyclically. If you set Fax/Tel mode, you can control precisely how the fax handles incoming calls by adjusting the following settings:
• Adjust the time the fax takes to check whether a call is from a fax machine or a telephone (<RING START TIME> setting).
• Adjust the length of time the fax rings when the call is a voice call (<TEL RING TIME> setting).
• Set whether the fax switches to receive mode after the ring time set in <TEL RING TIME> has elapsed (<DEFAULT ACTION> setting).
1. Press [Menu].
2. Use arrows to select <DATA REGISTRATION>, then press [Start/Copy]. The LCD displays <USER SETTINGS>.
3. Use arrows to select <RX SETTINGS>, then press [Start/Copy]. The LCD displays <ECM RX>.
4. Use arrows to select <FAX/TEL AUTO SW>, then press [Start/Copy]. The LCD displays <RING START TIME>.
5. Press [Start/Copy]. The LCD displays <8SEC.>
6. Use the numeric buttons, or arrows to enter the time the fax waits before ringing when it receives a call, then press [Start/Copy] twice. (This is the time the machine spends checking for a fax signal before ringing for the call to be answered as a telephone call.)
7. Use the numeric buttons, or arrows to enter the time the fax rings while waiting for someone to pick up the Handset, then press [Start/Copy] twice. The LCD displays <RECEIVE>.
8. Use arrows to select <RECEIVE> or <DISCONNECT>, then press [Start/Copy]. This setting tells the fax what to do if the Handset is not picked up within the specified ring time set in step 6.
9. Press [Stop].
Setting ends and the fax returns to standby mode. The machine will now handle calls as indicated in the settings you input.

If you do not feel that you can rate at a "FixYa", please post back with more information regarding what has occurred subsequently and/or more details regarding the situation, and I will gladly help you until we have reached a definitive solution.

HP640 not receiving with Distinctive Ring Option


You need a dedicated ANALOG phone line.

A DSL filter screens out ANALOG signals to a DSL device.not the other way around. There are no DIGITAL fax machines.

Receiving Faxes


Can you receive a voice call on the same line? Call the machine with your cell phone and see if it rings and you can hear your voice on the fax receiver. Use your manual to check the settings.
