Might be silly question but is it setup to auto transmit and receive? And have you tried to operate it manually? + take out the inline filter fax machines operate on volume'db' to soft and it can't hear, to loud and it can distort sound.

The printers memory may be full depending on the type of documents they are printing. The first and most simple step is to unplug the power cord from the back of the unit for 30 seconds, put your finger on the stop key while plugging the unit back up and continue holding the stop key until the time and date are back on the display of the Brother unit.

If that does not work unplug the USB cable from the PC. Unplug the power cord from the unit again. Put your finger on the menu key first and then plug the unit back up. You want to hold the menu key unit the until the LCD says maintanence and all the lights are flashing. Let the menu key go and press the number 82 and will give you an error code. If the error code is 00 then there are no errors. If there is an error code record it and contact brother or check a service manual if you have one. Most laser products all have the same error codes with Brother.

To reset the unit press stop and then 91, this will reset the unit and all faxes or print jobs will be lost. This should clear the issue.

Is the fax sensing the paper you put in to send out? Check the little black levers that poke into the document area. They should move freely when you touch them gently with a finger, and return quickly when you take your finger off. If it can't sense the paper it won't try to send a fax. If, when the paper is inserted, the display changes from whatever it said to anything else, the paper is being sensed.
Let's try dialing manually. Just left of the 1 key is a button labeled "Hook." Pressing that will take the telephone line "off-hook," like picking up the receiver of a phone. You should hear a dial tone -- if not, try adjusting the speaker volume with the buttons just right of the numbers. Once you get a dial tone, dial a number, whether it's another fax, or your own cell phone. As far as the phone company is concerned, your fax is just a phone, calling another phone. If you can make a call, and the phone at the other end rings, we're closing in on the problem. If you can dial another fax machine manually, you can still turn this into a fax call, assuming there's paper ready to fax. After the distant fax answers, touch the Start button, and your fax should take over. If you can't dial manually, try unplugging your fax from the phone line, and replacing it with a regular phone. Can you make calls with it? If not, the fax is no longer a suspect - you have a phone line problem.
Are you at a business where you need to dial 9 to get an outside line? It's easy to forget that detail when you're using a fax, but it has to dial out just like any other phone on the system.
If you can't get a dial tone at all with the fax, but it works with the phone alone, the main board in the fax is probably bad. If you can dial manually, using the Hook switch, but the same number doesn't work when you dial xxx-xxxx-Start, that sounds like a main board problem, too.

SOURCE: i have no dial tone on my fax machine and i cant

Remove the phone line from the back of the fax and connect a standard phone (not a business PABX or PAX system phone) to the line. Ensure dialtone is available. (Make sure in doing this that you are also testing the cable from the phone socket to the fax). If no dialtone, replace cable or fix line.

Check that the line is connected to the 'line' port on the fax, not the 'phone' port.

If still no dial tone, it may be modem fault (in the fax). Seek specialist attention.

Sir/Madam

Solution one: Check the fax connections Use the following steps to check the physical connections, and then use the HP Fax Test Service.

Step one: Check the physical connections

  1. Disconnect the telephone cord from the HP fax product, and then examine the connector on the end of the cord. Make sure that the cord has only two wires. Figure 1: Two-wire telephone cord

fe080726-3749-4408-9bf4-fb54019e59a9.gif
  1. Four-wire telephone cordGraphic: Four-wire telephone cordIf the cord has four wires, replace it with a two-wire phone cord.
    If you must use a cord with four wires, use the converter that shipped with product. The converter allows a cord with four wires to work with a device that requires a cord with two wires.
  2. Connect one end of the telephone cord to the telephone jack, and then connect the other end of the cord to the port labeled 1-Line on the back of the HP fax product.

  2. Pick up the telephone receiver and listen for a dial tone. Make sure that you can dial out using the telephone keypad.
    If there is a dial tone and you can dial out using the telephone, the HP fax product is connected correctly to a working telephone cord and telephone jack.

No dial tone on handset. can't send or recieve fax.


? Other equipment, which uses the same phone line as the HP All-in-One,
might be causing the test to fail. To find out if other equipment is causing a
problem, disconnect everything from the phone line, and then run the test
again. If the Dial Tone Detection Test passes without the other equipment,
then one or more pieces of the equipment is causing problems; try adding
them back one at a time and rerunning the test each time, until you identify
which piece of equipment is causing the problem.
? Try connecting a working phone and phone cord to the telephone wall jack
that you are using for the HP All-in-One and check for a dial tone. If you do
not hear a dial tone, contact your telephone company and have them check
the line.
? Make sure you have correctly connected the HP All-in-One to the telephone
wall jack. Using the phone cord supplied in the box with the HP All-in-One,
connect one end to your telephone wall jack, then connect the other end to
the port labeled 1-LINE on the back of the HP All-in-One.

If the supplied phone cord is not long enough, you can extend it. For
information, see The phone cord that came with my HP All-in-One is not long
enough.
Check the connection between the telephone wall jack and the HP All-in-One
to make sure the phone cord is secure.
Make sure you use the phone cord that came with the HP All-in-One. If you
do not use the supplied phone cord to connect from the telephone wall jack
to the HP All-in-One, you might not be able to send or receive faxes. After
you plug in the phone cord that came with the HP All-in-One, run the fax test
again.
If you are using a phone splitter, this can cause faxing problems. (A splitter is
a two-cord connector that plugs into a telephone wall jack.) Try removing the
splitter and connecting the HP All-in-One directly to the telephone wall jack.

If you are using a phone splitter, this can cause faxing problems. (A splitter is
a two-cord connector that plugs into a telephone wall jack.) Try removing the
splitter and connecting the HP All-in-One directly to the telephone wall jack.
If your telephone system is not using a standard dial tone, such as some
PBX systems, this might cause the test to fail. This will not cause a problem
sending or receiving faxes. Try sending or receiving a test fax.
Check to make sure the country/region setting is set appropriately for your
country/region. If the country/region setting is not set or is set incorrectly, the
test might fail and you might have problems sending and receiving faxes.
Make sure you connect the HP All-in-One to an analog phone line or you will
not be able to send or receive faxes. To check if your phone line is digital,
connect a regular analog phone to the line and listen for a dial tone. If you do
not hear a normal sounding dial tone, it might be a phone line set up for
digital phones. Connect the HP All-in-One to an analog phone line and try
sending or receiving a fax.
Make sure you use the phone cord that came with the HP All-in-One. If you
do not use the supplied phone cord to connect from the telephone wall jack
to the HP All-in-One, you might not be able to send or receive faxes. After
you plug in the phone cord that came with the HP All-in-One, run the fax test
again.
After you resolve any problems found, run the fax test again to make sure it
passes and the HP All-in-One is ready for faxing. If the Dial Tone Detection test
continues to fail, contact your telephone company and have them check the
phone line.

Cannot receive faxes


Step one: Check the fax number
Make sure the fax number is correct; include any numbers that you have to dial to use the telephone, such as an area code, access codes for outside lines or long-distance services, and so on. If you have to dial a particular sequence of numbers to make a telephone call from that telephone line, you also have to dial that sequence of numbers to send a fax.
If the issue is resolved, you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
If the number is correct, continue to the next step.
Step two: Dial the number manually
Instead of using a speed dial setting or sending the fax from the computer, dial the number manually from the product control panel.
If the fax sends when you dial the number from the control panel, follow these steps to recreate the speed dial setting and insert pauses in the number.
On the product control panel, press the Setup button.
Press the Left Arrow button ( ) or Right Arrow button ( ) until Speed Dial Setup appears on the control panel display, and then press the OK button.
Press the Left Arrow button ( ) or Right Arrow button ( ) until Individual Speed Dial appears on the control panel display, and then press the OK button.
Press the Left Arrow button ( ) or Right Arrow button ( ) to select an unassigned speed dial entry, and then press the OK button.
Use the product keypad to enter any numbers that must be inserted before the fax number, such as an area code or access codes for outside lines or long-distance services, and then press the Redial/Pause button to insert a pause.
Enter the rest of the fax number, using the Redial/Pause button to insert pauses between the numbers, and then press the OK button.
Enter the name of the speed dial setting, and then press the OK button to save the speed dial setting.
Try to send the fax again.
If the issue is resolved , you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
If the issue is not resolved , continue to the next step.
Step three: Run a fax diagnostic test
Press the On button ( ) to turn on the product, and then make sure the product is correctly connected to the telephone jack.
Make sure that there is plain white paper in the input tray.
On the product control panel, press 6 , and then press 6 again.
This selects the Tools menu and then selects Run Fax Test .
The fax diagnostic test page prints.
Review the results of the test.
If the result of the fax diagnostic test is All Pass , skip to Step four: Reinitialize the fax.
If the result of the fax diagnostic test is a failure, a page prints that describes the issue and offers possible solutions. Follow the solutions on the printout.
If the solutions on the printout resolve the issue, you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
If the solutions on the printout do not resolve the issue, continue to the next step.
Step four: Reinitialize the fax
While the product is on, disconnect the power cord from the back of the product and from the electrical outlet.
Make sure that the telephone cord is fully inserted into the port labeled 1-Line on the back of the product.
Connect the power cord to the back of the product, and then connect the power cord to the electrical outlet.
When the product is in the ready state, try to send and receive a fax again.
If the issue is resolved , you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
If the issue is not resolved , continue to the next step.
Step five: Test the send/receive functions
Use the product keypad to send a fax. Watch the product control panel display and listen to the sounds the product makes.
If the product is working correctly, the following events occur.
When the product begins to dial, a dial tone is audible, followed by the sound of the product dialing. A Dialing message appears on the control panel display.
When the receiving fax answers the call, the product and the fax exchange tones. A Connecting message appears on the control panel display. During this phase, the product and the fax compare capabilities, exchange information about how to send the fax, and try to establish a reliable transmission speed.
After the connection is established, the product sends the pages of the document. Messages appear on the control panel display that indicate the status, such as Sending page 1 .
Review the results of the fax.
If the fax is transmitted successfully, continue to the next step.
If there is no audible dial tone or the receiving fax does not answer the call, try sending the fax to a different destination. If this second attempt also fails, continue to the next step.
If the receiving fax answers the call and begins beeping, but the Connecting message does not appear on the product control panel display, the product is not detecting the tones from the receiving fax. Continue to the next step.
Step six: Use an analog telephone service
HP Fax and All-in-One products are designed to work with analog telephone services and might experience some difficulties when they are connected to phone lines with digital services. Make sure the product is connected to an analog telephone service.
To obtain digital services information or support, contact the telephone service provider or system administrator.
Step seven: Check the phone cord and fax connections
Disconnect the telephone cord, and then examine the connector on the end of the cord. Make sure the cord only has two wires.
Figure 1: Telephone cord with two wires
Figure 2: Telephone cord with four wires
If the cord has four wires, replace it with a two-wire telephone cord.
If you must use a cord with four wires, use the converter that shipped with product. The converter allows a cord with four wires to work with a device that requires a cord with two wires.
Make sure the fax is connected directly to the telephone jack by a telephone cord. Connect the cord to the 1-Line port on the back of the product.
Figure 3: Fax only
1 - Telephone jack
2 - Telephone line
3 - 1-Line
4 - 2-Ext
If other devices need to use the same telephone jack, make sure they are connected to the 2-Ext port on the back of the product.
Connect a single-line telephone to 2-Ext , and then pick up the receiver and listen for a dial tone. Make sure you are able to dial out using the telephone keypad. If you hear a dial tone and are able to dial out using the phone, the product is properly connected to a working telephone cord and telephone jack.

Figure 5: Fax and PC or modem

4 - 2-Ext
5 - PC or modem
If you change any cable connections, try sending and receiving a fax again to make sure that the issue is resolved.
If the issue is resolved , you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
If the issue is not resolved , continue to the next step.
Step eight: Remove any other devices from the telephone line
If any other devices, such as a telephone, an answering machine, or a modem, are connected to the telephone line, remove each device.
NOTE: Remove each device even if it is in another room, connected to another telephone jack, or connected using a line splitter.
Connect the product to an analog telephone line by connecting one end of the two-wire telephone cord directly to the telephone jack and then connecting the other end of the telephone cable directly to the 1-Line port on the back of the product.
Try to send a fax again.
If the issue is resolved , you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
If the issue is not resolved , continue to the next step.
Step nine: Perform a partial reset of the product
A partial reset of the product returns all fax settings to the default values. It might be necessary to reset the language and country/region settings after the partial reset is complete.
Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product.
Wait 20 seconds, and then press and hold # and 3 on the product control panel.
Connect the power cord to the back of the product, and then release the buttons when the product turns on.
The product is reset to factory defaults.
Try to send and receive faxes again. If the problem still exists, continue to the next step.
Step ten: Service the product
If you have completed all the steps listed above and are still experiencing a problem, service the product.

Fax


To test your fax setup
1 Press Setup.
2 Press 6, and then press 5.
This displays the Tools menu and then selects Run Fax Test.
The HP all-in-one displays the status of the test on the color graphics display and prints a report.

3 Review the report.
– If the test passes and you are still having problems faxing, check the fax
settings listed in the report to verify the settings are correct. A blank or
incorrect fax setting can cause faxing problems.
– If the test fails, review the report for information on how to fix any problems
found. For more information, you can also see the next section, The fax test
failed.
4 Press OK to return to the Setup Menu.

Make sure you used the phone cord supplied in the box with your HP all-in-one
to connect to the telephone wall jack. One end of this special 2-wire phone
cord should be connected to the port labeled "1-LINE" on the back of your
HP all-in-one and the other end to your telephone wall jack

This special 2-wire cord is different from the more common 4-wire phone cords
you might already have in your home or office. Check the end of the cord and
compare it to the two types of cords shown below.

If you used the 4-wire phone cord, disconnect it, find the supplied 2-wire cord,
and then connect the 2-wire cord to the port labeled "1-LINE" on the back of
your HP all-in-one. For more information on connecting this phone cord and
setting up your HP all-in-one for faxing, see Fax setup.
If the supplied phone cord is not long enough, you can extend it. For
information see The phone cord that came with my HP all-in-one is not long
enough.
● Try connecting a working phone and phone cord to the telephone wall jack
that you are using for the HP all-in-one and check for a dial tone. If you do not
hear a dial tone, contact your telephone company and have them check the
line.
● Other equipment, which uses the same phone line as the HP all-in-one, might
be in use. For example, you cannot use your HP all-in-one for faxing if an
extension phone is off hook, or if you are using your PC modem to send an email
or access the Internet.
● The phone line connection might be noisy. Phone lines with poor sound quality
(noise) can cause faxing problems. Check the sound quality of the phone line
by plugging a phone into the telephone wall jack and listening for static or
other noise. If you hear noise, turn Error Correction Mode (ECM) off and try
faxing again. For information, see Use error correction mode. If the problem
persists, contact your telephone company.
● If you are using a digital subscriber line (DSL) service, make sure that you
have a DSL filter connected or you will not be able to fax successfully. The
DSL filter removes the digital signal and allows your HP all-in-one to
communicate properly with the phone line. Obtain a DSL filter from your DSL
provider. If you already have a DSL filter, make sure it is connected correctly.
Make sure your HP all-in-one is not connected to a telephone wall jack that is
set up for digital phones. To check if your phone line is digital, connect a
regular analog phone to the line and listen for a dial tone. If you do not hear a
normal sounding dial tone, it might be a phone line set up for digital phones.
● If you are using either a private branch exchange (PBX) or an integrated
services digital network (ISDN) converter/terminal adapter, make sure the
HP all-in-one is connected to the port that is designated for fax and phone
use. Also, make sure that the terminal adapter is set to the correct switch type
for your country/region, if possible.
Note that some ISDN systems allow you to configure the ports for specific
phone equipment. For example, you might have assigned one port for
telephone and Group 3 fax and another port for multiple purposes. If you
continue to have problems when connected to the fax/phone port, try using the
port designated for multiple purposes; it might be labeled "multi-combi" or
something similar. For information on setting up your HP all-in-one with a PBX
phone system or ISDN line
