Do you have the phone you are answering with connected through the fax machine? If you have the machine set in 'tel priority' mode, the machine will not begin receiving a fax until you press 'FAX' and the 'color' or 'black' button. Alternatively, if you have your phone connected to the 'telephone' jack on the machine (next to the 'L' jack), you can press '2' and '5' on the telephone keypad to turn the machine on in fax receive mode.

They're telling you your hardward doesn't play nice with their hardware. A few suggestions:
Update your printer, and see if any improvement is found:
If that doesn't work, see if your computer has a fax modem that itself can be updated and can support the hardware. Your multifunction printer has a scanner; you can scan in the things you want to fax, then fax from the computer if the computer can fax. This is starting to look like a Dr. Seuss book.
You can also try to learn more about what the problems are and look elsewhere. Your "digital" phone is actually voice over Internet, something VOIP. If you Google for VOIP FAX you'll find some information, like this:

The Analog line for your fax machine works best with a Trapezoidal Wave Form, but the line coming out of your adapter is Sinusoidal. Call Vonage support, get transfer to tech support and let them know you need a fax specialist, who will then update your account and change the waveform to Trapezoidal. That's how I got my HP Office 7860 Pro to work.

Make sure that the phone line coming from the wall jack is inserted in the port with the "L" next to it (I think it's the bottom of the three). If you put it in the port with the picture of the phone next to it (which is for an extension phone or answering machine), the L120 thinks that the receiver is off the hook of the extension phone.

Call your phone company to sign up for service. Ask for an additional line with a "distinctive ring." The additional line is for your fax machine---whenever you hear the distinctive ring you'll know that a fax is coming through. Get voice mail service on the regular phone line as well.
Purchase a two-jack phone splitter (sometimes called a wall jack adapter) that allows two cords to plug into the same phone line. Plug it into the phone jack in your wall.
Run a phone cord from both machines into the wall adapter. Test the system by calling both your regular phone number (assure it rings and the voice mail picks up) and your fax number to see if the fax machine picks up (you'll hear a set of strange beeping tones).
