Can't send a fax

I used to use my fax until a couple days ago. When I try to send a fax I have a a voice message that says something like :You can't
finish a call as dialed. 5 digit code has changed.
Don't understand what is the catch? What I supose to do?

    I tried to fax to a couple different numbers and it doesn't work (but just 4 days ago sent a fax without any problem). I check the dial tone switching it to the phone and there is a dial tone. I also run the fax test on my hp and it passes. So, I am still confused what is the problem all of the sudden.

It's doubt it is your fax machine that is the problem.

I think you will find tha either the fax's line is faulty or
the way you are dialing a particular number is incorrect or has changed, does it say the same no matter where you try to fax to?

Check you are using or not using any number needed for a outside line if required.

We can send faxes but we can not receive faxes. The fax machine that sends the fax tell it that our line is busy. Is that a machine problem or a phone line problem?

Problem lies in your Receive Mode setting. If you don't have a dedicated phone line for the fax machine, you need to set it up for either Manual where you answer every call or Fax/Tel whereby the Fax machine determines if the incoming call is a fax or phone call. Instructions per Intellifax 4100 Manual.

Select a Receive Mode
Choose the mode that best suits your needs by pressing the Mode button
repeatedly until the FAX and FAX/TEL lights show the setting you want to use.
You must answer every call yourself.
The Brother machine must be started manually
to receive faxes.
For use with a dedicated fax line.
Every call is answered as a fax.
For receiving fax and voice calls on one line.
The FAX answers every call and receives a fax or
double rings for you to pick up a voice call.
For use with an answering device.
The TAD answers every call and stores voice messages.
Fax messages are printed.

Canon 1023if not receiving faxes automatically

Is this fax line shared with the phone? I believe there is a distictive ring setting in the add'l functions area under communication settings then receive settings. you would need to select a ring pattern different so the fax can tell between which types of calls it is receiving.

It has worked for me in serveral other installs

Hope this helps

If you see my response's to other probs. people are having you will notice they are similar.
A lot of what appear to be network issues can be down to 3G probs range from delays sending receiving sms/mms, accessing internet, calls going to voice mail, no signal......

Try changing network mode to GSM 1st, for some reason this can be an issue with the fone trying to use 3G.

Can't Send or Receive Faxes from MFC-7820 N

You may not need a separate fax line from Vonage. If you don't need a dedicated fax line, you can try changing the "Bandwidth Saver" settings on your Vonage voice line from your account on the Vonage website. Perform the following:

1. Login to your Vonage account online and click the "Features" tab.
2. Scroll down to the "Bandwidth Saver" link and click on the "Configure" button.
3. You will see a scrollbar with 3 settings: 30kbps, 50kbps and 90kbps

NOTE: My "Saver" was set to 90kbps (Highest Sound Quality) by default.

4. Click on 30kbps (Normal) and click "Submit".
5. Wait about an hour before testing as it could take that long for the change to take effect.
6. Send a test fax to the HP fax test service at 1-888-hpfaxme (1-888-473-2963).

NOTE: This is a GREAT service provided by HP. If your fax goes through correctly, you will receive a return fax within five minutes.

We upgraded to Verizon FiOS and never thought the increased upload speed (4mbps) would present an issue sending faxes. WRONG. We never had fax issues with DSL, Comcast or even Broadstripe VOIP service but for some reason Vonage + FiOS = no fax. That is until we set our Vonage VOIP sound quality to "Normal". Our phone voice quality has been much more reliable since throttling back. This sentiment has also been shared by other Vonage users who have experienced echoing and noise when utilizing the higher quality settings.

Your phone coversations may not have FM quality sound but they will have AM quality and usually that is just fine.

If your fax machine has a Telephone Answering Device (TAD) setting, you can share your voice line with your fax machine and be able to receive faxes and voice messages. Hopefully this will work for you.

Cannot fax w/ phone line

A lot of Voice Over IP phone providers don't support FAX or you have to pay extra for it. If thet refused to help, then they probably don't support it, if they did, they would try to get you to buy it. FAX data is not always compatible with VOIP transmission. Not much you can do about it, except compalin louder to them. If it is possible to set the baud rate of your fax slower, that might help.

HP LaserJet 3330MFP quit recieving & sending faxes

Your Line Interface Unit (L.I.U.) is bad. The part # is C9138-60001. Google for part availability.
1 Open or remove the left side door.
2 Remove one screw at the left of the formatter board.
3 Disconnect the flat flexible cable from the connector.
4 Rotate the LIU around the hooks to remove.

It's about a 5 min job. Good Luck.
