Fax is on pulse dial

I am trying to find out how to change the dialing from pulse to tone. The pulse is too slow for my phone switch, I believe this is causing it to reorder before the call completes.

Re: Fax is on pulse dial

Go to the Utility menu, select "Administrator Settings" (password required) from there , fax settings, telephone line. In here you should be able to set the dialing method. There should only be 2 options, just pick the other one. (PB is for tone i believe)

Fax problem

I want to make sure I understand this completely. You get no dial tone from the fax machine when hooked up to VOIP. In the past, was there an audible dial tone from the fax, or did it just dial silently and give you an error if there was no tone? When you said you got a dial tone by connecting a phone to the ext phone port of "the machine" did you mean the fax machine? If you get a dial tone by running a phone through the fax machine, then the line is good. I have used a fax machine over Sunrocket before they went defunct, which used the same technology base as Vonage - so it should work. If you used to get an audible dial tone when using the fax, and no longer do, and you are geting a dial tone on a regular phone that is connected to the ext. port of the fax machine, then the problem has to be in the fax machine itself, not the VOIP. If you can verify that, we can go from there.

How do I receive a fax?

If the machine is located away from the telephone, pick up the handset and dial 25 (the remote receiving ID) to receive faxes (remote reception).
bullet_s.gif If you use a rotary pulse line, temporarily switch your telephone to tone dialing. For details on how to switch to tone dialing, see the instruction manual supplied with your telephone.
bullet_s.gif If you have an answering machine connected to the machine that can carry out remote control operations, the security code for this function may be the same as the remote receiving ID. In this case, change the remote reception ID in REMOTE RX ID in REMOTE RX in RX SETTINGS under FAX SETTINGS.

No fax transmission

Plug the phone line into the plug marked L on the back, make sure you are dialing the full number, The fax won't work in an office with digital phone service, you need an analog phone line like at home. In fax setup you need the type of dialing set properly, tone or pulse dialing, check also with Canon support, 1-800-828-4040

HP 5610 All-in-one can recieve faxes but not send, when sending a fax i always get the busy tone. connot understand why, recieves faxes prefectly.

Have you set for the proper dialing? there's a choice for pulse or tone dialing, you probably need tone dialing. Also the number needs to be put in just as you would dial on a phone.

Problems sending and receiving faxes.

  1. Open Lexmak Productiviti studio - 5600 - 6000 Series ( icon on Desktop)
  2. Open Setup and manage faxes link ( left bottom corner)
  3. On Ringing and Answering card look at the Manual Answer Code ( if some nuber inside delete it, it should be blank)
  4. On Dialing and sending card look at the Dial method (if you have a tone phone select Touch - tone, and if you have pulse phone select Pulse)
The diference betwen Touche Tone and Pulse is that Tone when you press nuber hear tone (like on cell phone), and Pulse when you dial nuber hear serie of short pulses (like when you dial nuber 5 you hear 5 short pulses like tttttt)

HP 4215

try connecting a normal phoneline to that line and try.
It might be a prob with long dist calls.

If u are ok with the phone test, check its in tone or pulse. Try switching. Then also if that is not working just reset the printer and try.
