How do I hook up fax, and do I need a seperate phone # for the fax?


Plug the fax data line into your phone outlet. Plug your phone into the fax machine phone outlet. Follow the setup instructions to tell the fax when to answer. You can use the same phone line for both faxing and normal calls.

Tip

A fax machine is just a big ol' telephone answering machine


There is no mystery, seriously. You send a fax exactly the same way as you make a phone call; instead of talking to a person, your fax machine talks to another fax machine. Clicks, squeals, buzz sounds.

If it says it's busy, well, it's busy
If it doesn't answer, it's not set to AUTO RECEIVE
If it says OFF HOOK another device is using YOUR phone line.
If you don't hear a dial tone when you press the HOOK or MONITOR key, the phone line is dead. Check the line with a regular phone.

If a dial tone sounds weird, it is a DIGITAL phone line. You need an ANALOG or regular phone line.

ALL FAX MACHINES ARE ANALOG DEVICES AND WILL NOT WORK RELIABLY ON A DIGITAL SYSTEM OR A COMPUTER....Magic Jack, Vonage, etc. are DIGITAL PHONE SYSTEMS. Don't believe what the Vendor tells you. They are for designed for VOICE GRADE PHONE CALLS ONLY.

The settings in your fax machine were designed by people who are a lot smarter and make more money than us. DON"T MESS WITH THE PARAMETERS.

It's all that SIMPLE !!

Installed Cox Digital Telephone. They disconnected my fax line. I have a Dell 968 printer and what I read on line is that it is not compatible with Windows 7 and that I would have to update the prin


Most newer fax machine seem to short line 1 and 2 together and this will cause a VOIP modem "called an eMTA" to go off hook. Your fax machine should have come with a phone jumper that has only a single line "2 wires inside it", you should be able to use that jumper to attach your fax machine to your house phone wiring. If you use a standard phone line jumper it has both lines "4 wires" and can cause your eMTA modem to go off hook which could be why it was disconnected.

ERROR T82 BIZHUBC280 IMPOSSIBLE TO SEND OR RECEIVE FAX


Check your fax line connection is the FAX line plugged into the Line jack on the copier and NOT THE TELE connector. Must be Line. Take a old phone like a old princess phone and hook it up to the wall get a good dial tone call some one any noise? Have some one call the fax number OK if hooked to the copier get the tradition noise of a fax line, Check the fax line itself use only one with two wires not four, black and yellow only no red and green. Also put on one of the EMI devices on the cable going into the copier cut down on electrical noise. Line can not be digital must be all analog (POT) Plain Old Telephone, have your phone provider check the line.

I'm looking for a fax machine that will share a single phone line, so that incoming calls are routed to the phone and incoming faxes are routed to the fax machine. Is this a built in feature?


I don't really know of a fax machine that will do this automaticly. But you have hope at electronics stores or computer stores they sell a spiltter just for this use. All you do to hook it up is there is one spot to plug in the incoming phone line, then at the other end or side depending on type you buy. You'll have one output to fax and one to your telephone. You can fax or receive faxes and make calls. The splitter seperates the uincoming calls as to faxs or calls and sends them to the correct output.

My hp officejet v40xi says off hook when I try to send a fax. I hear not dial tone. can you help me I am using sbcglobal service


It will say 'off the hook' if the line is in use. There should be dial tone on the line before you can fax something.

Goodluck!

Problem faxing


Unplug the fax at the wall jack and hook up a regular phone. Listen to the dial tone. It should sound like a regular dial tone.

Next, plug the fax back in and call the machine from a regular phone.

You should hear fax tones.

Will not send faxes


Make sure the phone line is plugged into the LINE jack on the fax, NOT THE PHONE JACK. The phone jack is to add a telephone to the fax. If it is connected properly, try calling your fax from a cell phone and see if it answers. If the fax answers, hang up and press the HOOK button on your fax and use the fax keypad to call your cell. If the cell rings, answer the call and listen for the fax machine tones. If you hear the fax on the cell, you may have to change your machines TRANSMIT or DIALING settings.

Will not fax


Hook a phone to the fax line and try to dial out... a fax line is no different than a phone line at your house ,, don't use a multi line phone like the ones at the office use a phone like you would have at the house to hook the the fax line .. If you are able to dial out call someone and check the line for static and pops they can cause the fax not to work either.. Good Luck
