I am trying to send a Fax but keep getting a communications error

I am trying to send a Fax but keep getting a communication error. I have the hp3050 connected to my vonage box and the usb port connected to my pc's tower. if i plug the phone directly into the vonage box i get dial tone but when i connect the phone into the hp3050 and the hp3050 into the vonage box my phone gets a line in use indicator and sounds like dead air. I have reset the defults on the hp3050 but still get a communications error. is there someting else that i need to be doing. thanks

    One question that I do have concerning the digital analog thing is that I do keep getting comm.errors but there are times that I am able to fax. it just isn?t consistently. I had spoken to a Vonage tech. and to someone from Geek squad and they believed that faxing through digital is possible but haven?t been able to correct my faxing inconsistence problem. Is there an attachment that can be added to run interference resulting from digital noise?

Vonage is a DIGITAL phone service. ALL fax machines are analog devices. You need a plain old telephone line.

    No, there is no way around the digital line working with analog systems



    You will continue to have unreliable, sporatic fax transmissions.

What does COM-E mean when we try to send fax's and the transmissions has this written on it instead of OK.


It means "Communication Error".
The result might be twofold:
- the fax didn't reach it's destination because of communications error (any kind)
- the fax did reach it's destination, but part of it may be unreadable or distorted, or some pages of a multi-page fax did not go through.
In many cases, what the device perceives as an erroneous transmission, is perfectly readable by a human. Therefore it's good to call the recipient and ask if the fax is readable and if all the pages were received.

Communication error


keep the window closed ok? that's more along the lines of the phone issues, than the fax machine itself..there are many ways to outwit the phone tree issues, but each number would need to be encoded directly.

solution?

get a dedicated inexpensive fax machine, or use efax.com
