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.

    If the fax machine is disconnected from the phone line, does it ring when you phone it?

    Is there anything shareing the line with the fax? Computer, debit machine, Etc.

    If you plug a plug a telephone into the fax line can you call out? can you receive calls?



    Try changing the phone cord from wall to fax, insure the cord goes into the LINE port on the fax machine.



    If none of these work, you may have a bad modem board in the machine.

    If you put too many devices on one line, you could have load problems.



    Hope this helps

Cant receive faxes. constant busy signal when dialing in.


Hi Janet
Try using a standard phone to call your Fax Line
Connect a phone to this Line to test for voice
Disconnect Fax Machine from Phone Line
Reset Fax machine
The Fax machine is supposed to respond to the right tones being sent down the voice line
If it is not responding & all else works then check your Fax settings for "Receiving"

My Brother MFC7340 Fax Machine will not send faxes it has a busy signal always and a busy signal when someone tries to fax me.


Hi,
You need to reset the memory, since previously you have dialed some number, which is not able to connect. So restart the printer. Unplug the printer for 10 minutes and plug back the power to the printer.

Hope this helps.

Can not get a dial tone. Phone appears to be off the hook. How do I trouble shoot it?


Unplug the phone line from the fax machine. Wait at least 1 minute then call the phone number that goes to the fax machine from another line such as a cell phone. Make sure you get a ring and not a busy signal. If you get a ring then hang up the phone. Plug in the fax machine again and call the fax number again. If you get a busy signal then either your phone if off the hook, the switch that is actuated when the phone is placed in the cradle is bad or your modem in the fax machine itself has gone bad. Another thing to try is unplug the fax machines power cord for 30 seconds then plug it back in. I have seen the modems get "locked up" and keep the phone line open. Unplugging will sometimes reset this and get it working again.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

BUSY SIGNAL UNABLE TO RECIEVE FAX


You should unplug your fax machine from the phone wire and call your fax number to see if it is still busy. If it is then you have some other device sharing the line that is holding the line busy or a short in a wire. Remove all other devices (computer modem, credit card machine, cable/satellite box, alarm system etc) and check again. If it is still busy you may have to call your phone company to have them diagnose the problem. If the line is cleared start adding each device back to the line and check between each to see if the line busy's up. If it does it may be the device or the wire (the wire may be damaged and shorting the line).

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.

When I dial a fax number I get a busy signal even though I know that the number is not busy because I have dialed it on my outside line and it works. This has happened repeatedly. I have unplugged...


Since you mentioned that you have an outside line, do you have to use a code to dial out normally? Try plugging in a phone to the line for your fax machine, and attempt to dial the number for the other fax machine using the phone. You should reach the fax and hear a high pitched sequence of tones. This is the other fax machine trying to establish a connection. If you still get a busy signal, try calling the owner and letting them know that their fax machine is not accepting incoming calls.

When trying to fax, iam getting a fast busy signal, this problem just strated


This could be related to the fax machine, but more than likely it's a phone line issue. Try sending a fax manually by using the fax machine's speaker or "on-hook", then manually dial the number. Listen carefully as the machine dials and make sure it's even dialing out. Do not hit start until you hear the other fax machine pick up. If the "fast" busy signal occurs before dialing is complete or right after, have your phone line checked.

Gets busy signal


You may simply have a bad phone line from the machine to the wall jack. If the connection is getting flakey it will cause it not to connect.
You could have a sticking relay on the fax modem circuit board.
Also you could just need to reset the machine via the manufacturers directions on how to clear the memory or reset the machine to defaults.
Another question is , do you have any other pieces of equipment on the phone line with the fax? Such as a credit card machine or other device that may be causing the problem. If you have more than one item on the phone line, try plugging only the fax machine into that line and see if that works.
Is there an extension phone built into the machine also? Make sure its not causing a problem either.
That problem has a multitude of issues.
You could also have a phone line problem. If your line voltage is low, line current low or you have alot of DB loss, it can cause that issue.
Sorry I can't narrow it down to one specific issue, but that one has lots of possibilities.
