What exactly happens when a fax should be coming through and it does not? Does the machine ring and fail to answer, or does it answer, possibly receive, and then not print? Which mode is the machine set for? Are there any error messages on the machine or other LCD message displayed?
Have you verified the telephone line is properly connected so that the machine is able to communicate? Make sure that the machine is able to use the telephone line by using the handset to make a phone call. If this fails, you will know to go through the phone troubleshooting problems, just as you would with any other phone issues.
If the phone line is functional, please reply with more detail re exactly what occurs when a fax should be coming through, e.g. does the fax machine answer the call or let it ring until answered manually? I believe that either there is an issue with the line, or there is an issue with the setup of the mode for receiving, but can not be more specific without more information.
