Fax machine says there is no answer from receiver

    Did you try to call the number with a reciver to see you hear the "handshake" tone? If yes, you hear it, then call the number your fax is on to see if you hear it from there.

    If you hear from both, then there should be communication between the two...

SOURCE: Fax issue with HP Laserjet 3055

Hi. The fax-module in lj 3055 needs a 100% analog dial tone. You might get it working on a internet-phone-line, but HP garantees nothing because there are so many internet-phone-providers, and all of them operates with different specs and line-quality. You might try to lower the baud rate, turn off JBIG compession and error-correction. If the problem still remains, you need to replace your phone-line to a 100% analog line. Not any internet or ISDN/adapter-stuff. You should test your fax on any analog line at a friends house, just to make sure the fax i working anway.

SOURCE: fax is saying no dial tone and not sending.

if you are using xp home you have to go into the utility and install the fax program its there but not installed and turned on this is most likely your problem, because once installed it will automatically hook itself to the modem.

SOURCE: No answer when sending fax

The receiving fax machine never answered. Maybe their fax machine is set to MANUAL or is disconnected.

It's not your fax machine that's the problem.

NEED 2 PROGRAM COVER PAGE


Cover Sheet
You can have the fax machine generate a cover sheet and send it as the last page of your fax transmission. The cover sheet includes the date and time, the receiver's name and number if a Rapid Key or Speed Dial number is used, the sender's name and number, and the total number of pages.
? Your name and number must be programmed in order for them to appear
on the cover sheet (see page 49).
? To have the recipient's name appear, you must dial using a Rapid Key or
Speed Dial number with the name programmed.
1 Load the document(s).
• SEND READY will appear in the display.
• Press RESOLUTION and/or CONTRAST to set the resolution and contrast if needed.
Press Cover Sheet. (Flip up the Rapid Key overlay if it is down.)
• The display will briefly show COVER SHEET MODE ENTERED and then
revert to SEND READY.
• To cancel the cover sheet selection, press STOP.
3 Dial the receiving party and transmit the fax.
If desired, you can set your fax to automatically send a cover sheet with every
transmission (you do not have to press COVER SHEET each time). This is
accomplished by setting Option Setting 10 (Auto Cover Sheet) to YES as
explained on page 125.

I CAN`T SEND A FAX


Fax machines are sorta like printers, sorta like scanners, and sorta like dial up modems all wrapped into one expensive box.
1. First thing to make sure of is that you are hooked to a phone line. most fax machines have a phone handset that you can make calls from. Call someone and make sure that works. If So, you are able to connect to phone networks, and should have no trouble sending or receiving data. If you have a dead line or no sound, check the line and check the power. (its always the easy stuff that is overlooked, just check it and make sure).
2. If this fax machine has computer interface, (usb port or parallel cable port), see if you can scan with it. Drop a document into the scan area and see if the computer can scan an image from the scanner. If the scanner works, you can scan images into the fax machine to be sent to the fax number. (If your fax machine does not have a scan to computer feature, skip this.)
3. if your fax machine has a print from pc feature, try to print a document to it from your computer. If you can print, then the printer works, and you can receive faxes. (if your fax machine does not have a pc printing feature, skip this)
4. Here is how a typical fax machine works. You place the document or image into the scanner feed area. You press a big button that usually says "fax" and then, a screen pops up saying to dial the number. You dial the number and press SEND. once you press Send, the machine will scan the document, dial the number and sing a little dial up modem song awaiting a response from the receiving machine. the receiving machine acknowledges the fax, and the singing is no longer audible (but it continues because the modem song is actually data transmission/reception). after about 20-60 seconds, the fax completes and the call ends. As for the particular model you have, the functions should be about the same, though the buttons and arrangements may be different. FYI, you can send a fax straight from the PC too, if you have a dial-up fax/modem card.

Hi zoaj,

More then likely you have the fax set up to USE A DIALING PREFIX.

Therefore it is automatically doing this, regardless of what you input.

Follow the proceedure below ( which comes directly from the users manual for your printer type ) to change this. Delete the " USE A DIALING PREFIX " information.

once that is done, it will no longer automatically add the prefix for you. :)

I have BOLDED the relevant information below that pertains to this.

Please take a moment to evaluate my solution. Your appropriate rating of my solution would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
