Sharp UXB700 Fax

I'm not getting my incoming faxes?  I have a service from the phone company that automatically routes my fax to the email when the phone is

busy.  Even when it is not busy I'm not getting the emails currently, they

told me it's the programming of the fax needs to change to 3 rings.  It now

rings about 5 times ??? before it picks up the voice message.


Would you help me figure this out?

Re: Sharp UXB700 Fax

I have a Savin Fax 3655. It allows me to fax out, but no one can fax me.

The little display says "Clear Copy" and a little read light is on.
Now usually it means there is a copy stuck in the machine. But there is none.

Now, when I call the machine, on my end nothing picks up. In other words, the machine does nor appear to hear an incoming call and phone jack is in and like I said, I can successfully transmit.

Wierd. Help please!.

Hp officejet 6500 instructions for receiving a fax? Thanks

You can receive faxes automatically or manually. If you turn off the Auto Answer option, you must receive faxes manually. If you turn on the Auto Answer option (the default setting), the device automatically answers incoming calls and receives faxes after the number of rings that are specified by the Rings to Answer setting. (The default Rings to Answer setting is five rings.)
If you receive a legal-size fax and the device is not currently set to use legal-size paper, the device reduces the fax so that it fits on the paper that is loaded. If you have disabled the Automatic Reduction feature, the device prints the fax on two pages.
NOTE: If you are copying a document when a fax arrives, the fax is stored in the
device memory until the copying finishes. This can reduce the number of fax pages stored in memory.
This section contains the following topics:
• Receive a fax manually
• Set up backup fax reception
• Reprint received faxes from memory
• Poll to receive a fax
• Forward faxes to another number
• Set the paper size for received faxes
• Set automatic reduction for incoming faxes
• Block junk fax numbers
• Receive faxes to your computer (Fax to PC and Fax to Mac)
Receive a fax manually
When you are on the phone, the person you are speaking with can send you a fax while you are still connected. This is referred to as manual faxing. Use the instructions in this section to receive a manual fax.
NOTE: You can pick up the handset to talk or listen for fax tones.
You can receive faxes manually from a phone that is:
• Directly connected to the device (on the 2-EXT port)
• On the same phone line, but not directly connected to the device
NOTE: The automatic document feeder must be empty to receive a fax. If there are documents in the ADF, then the device will not be able to receive incoming faxes.
To receive a fax manually
1. Make sure the device is turned on and you have paper loaded in the input tray.
2. Remove any originals from the document feeder tray.
NOTE: The automatic document feeder must be empty to receive a fax. If there
are documents in the document feeder, then receiving the fax will be
3. Do one of the following to answer a fax manually:
• Set the Rings to Answer setting to a high number to allow you to answer the
incoming call before the device answers.
• Turn off the Auto Answer setting so that the device does not automatically
answer incoming calls.
4. If you are currently on the phone with the sender, instruct the sender to press Start on their fax machine.
5. When you hear fax tones from a sending fax machine, do the following:
a. Press START FAX Black or START FAX Color on the device control panel.
b. When prompted, select Fax Receive.
NOTE: Depending on your country/region, the device might receive the fax
automatically when you hear fax tones from the sending fax machine.
6. After the device begins to receive the fax, you can hang up the phone or remain on the line. The phone line is silent during fax transmission.

It is cheaper to use online fax service compared to the conventional fax machine. This way is more flexible as well because you can send and receive faxes anywhere as long as you are connected to the internet. I use fax email service, and it's reliable.

Nothing you can do to stop an unwanted incoming fax. Tell the phone company to clear the line.

We are getting a lot of COM. E-31 errors on

plug out your fax and plug in a regular phone in to the line and dial your cell... if you can talk for 2 minutes with no distortion or noise on the line then all is well... if you cann't get through you have a problem...

connect your fax and call multiple fax machines... if you have the same error with multiple fax machines then your fax or your phone line is the problem...

change the fax cable... if you are getting the same error.... call your cell from the fax... if you can get the voice mail... your fax is ok... and the phone line is ok... the guy on the other end has a problem...

if the guy on the other end always has a problem and you can dial out and get your cell... connect another fax that you know works and try all these tests...

if it has the same problem then its your fax line call call the phone company

It means you have a fax in memory that cannot be sent.

Do you have DSL or any kind of digital phone line? Do you have a dial-tone?

Unplug the power cord and re-plug.

Sounds like a job that sent which requires differnt size paper or just froze up the machine.
What you will most likely have to do is, search your menus and setups, and find memory clear. And run a memory clear process.
There some corruption in the fax machines software that needs reset, That will do it.
You will have to then reset date and time, etc. But that should do it.

It could be a compatibility issues between the two faxes. If the other fax is particularly old its communication speed could be too slow for your fax.

Also don't rule out the line on there end. Many times in my job I've had Telephone company's check the line remotely and say its ok but its not until they come out to site that they find an actual fault.

Do a manual reception. Put your fax reception mode from automatic to manual. When the fax rings in pick up the line with the hook or speaker phone button and then press the start button. This rules out a fair part of the line correction. If you can receive of course.
