Is AutoAnswer turned on? Have you set it up to receive the fax using Dell PC Fax?

Unable to send, copy or send fax


Sounds like the scanner bulb is burnt out or it's not able to move the scanner sled.
It should be saying "scanner error" as well. (and I think you meant unable to scan, copy or send fax)
No fix unfortunately other than getting a replacement unit (which I believe now is the 8500 premiere)

If you need a replacement, your timing is good, they are $200 off right now, and selling for $299.

Your unit as it stands still makes a good printer and will receive faxes, and you CAN send a fax as long as you do it from the computer.

Able to send faxes but unable to receive faxes.


You probably have to set something up in your settings.

Usually this goes: Settings>Fax Setup>Receive

Of course, this is generic, and all Fax machines are different. Is there a model number?

Setting up fax machine to receive


Receive Mode Setting
On the operation panel, press the following buttons to select the appropriate receive mode.
  1. Press <Fax>.

  2. Press <Menu>.

  3. Press the right or left arrow button to select [Receive mode set], then press <OK>.

  4. Press the right or left arrow button to select the receive mode that best suits your needs, then press <OK>.


    FAX ONLY MODE: When you want to receive only faxes automatically with your machine, or have a dedicated telephone line for FAX use only.

    MANUAL MODE: When you receive mainly voice calls and sometimes faxes, or want to receive faxes manually.
    ANS MACHINE MODE: When you want to receive voice messages on your answering machine and receive faxes automatically.
    FAX/TEL AUTO SW: When you want to receive faxes automatically as well as voice calls.
    DRPD: When you have subscribed to a DRPD service with your telephone company.

  5. Press <Stop/Reset> repeatedly to return to fax standby mode.

Sending Methods Sending From Your Machine (Memory Sending)
  1. Load the document on the Platen Glass or the ADF.

    Important: When sending a double-sided document, set the document on the Platen Glass. You cannot scan double-sided documents from the ADF.

  2. Press <FAX>.

  3. Adjust the settings for your document as necessary.

  4. Dial the recipient's number using the numeric keys or speed dialing.

  5. Press <Color> for color sending, or <Black> for black & white sending.

    • When the document was loaded on the Platen Glass:

      1. When the following message is displayed, load the next page on the Platen Glass.

        nextpagelcd.gif

        If you have only one sheet to scan, press <OK>..
      2. Press <Color> to send in color, or <Black> to send in black and white.

        IMPORTANT: If you do not press the same button you pressed in step 5, the machine does not start scanning.
      3. Repeat steps 5a and 5b to scan in all pages of the document.
      4. Press <OK>.

    • When the document was loaded in the ADF:

      The machine starts sending automatically after the document is scanned in.

      Note: Color sending is available only when the recipient's fax machine supports color faxing.
  • To cancel sending before sending a fax, press <Stop/Reset>.
  • To cancel memory sending while sending a fax, follow any instructions on the LCD after pressing <Stop/Reset>.
  • If the document remains in the ADF after pressing <Stop/Reset> during sending a fax, press <OK>. The remaining document is automatically fed out.

Sending From Your Machine (Manual Sending)
Use manual sending when you want to talk to the recipient before sending a document, or if the recipient does not have a fax machine that can receive automatically.
Caution:
  • With manual sending, you cannot use the Platen Glass to send documents.
  • You will need to connect a telephone to your machine if you want to talk to the recipient before sending a document.
Follow this procedure:
  1. Connect a telephone to your machine if you want to talk to the recipient before sending a document

  2. Load the document in the ADF.

  4. Adjust the settings for your document as necessary.

  5. You can lift the handset if one is connected to the machine.

  6. Dial the recipient's number using the numeric keys or coded speed dialing.

  7. Talk through the handset to the recipient. (If you hear a high-pitched signal instead of the
    recipient's voice, go to step 9.)

  8. Ask the recipient to set recipient's fax machine to receive faxes.

  9. When you hear a high-pitched signal, press <Color> for color sending, or <Black> for black & white sending. Then hang up the handset.

Doesn't receive from two fax numbers outside the UK


I would suggest there is nothing actually wrong with your machine, as you can indeed receive faxes from other parties. The problem mostly likely lies with the equipment and/or lines of the sending party. One thing you might suggest to them is to turn off ECM (Error Correction Mode) and/or lowering the sending/receiving speed of the machine - preferably the sending speed of the sending party.
