Can not send outgoing faxes on brother mfc-8220.

There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to send a fax. Check your manual for troubleshooting tips. However here are some simple things to try.
1. Check to make sure the cord from the outlet in the wall to your all-in-one is plugged into the proper port. There are usually two ports that will accept your phone plugs on the back of machine. One goes to your phone or answering machine and the other one to the line that goes the outlet in the wall. It's easy to plug your cord into the wrong port. Try plugging your phone cord into the other port and see that works.
2. You may have a defective phone cord or the wrong type of cord. Most phone cords only have two conductors in the cord and others have four. Try replacing the phone cord with a known good phone cord and see if that helps.

Fax only sounds as if its online and wont send out my fax

Try this approach.
  1. Re-brick your printer by pulling out the power supply - the black box where the power cord is plugged into.
  2. Disconnect the power cord from the power outlet.
  3. Plug the power cord to a different known working power outlet. Bypass any power surge devices or power strips - these tend to draw away power from the printer.
  4. Re-plug the power supply into the printer.
  5. Ensure that the fax telephone cable is properly plugged in and secured into the printer and into the phone jack in the wall.
  6. Try to send a fax again to verify that the problem is fixed.

I have a Epson all in one printer, scanner, fax etc. and when I try to send a fax I get busy report.

Try to send a test fax to HP's fax-back line:
1-888-HP FAX ME

You can send a blank page and if they receive it they'll send you a fax back confirming it.
If you can send to HP then whoever you tried to fax to earlier is having an issue or the number you have is wrong.

If you cannot send to HP then there's an issue with your line/machine.
You would then start troubleshooting by hooking up a phone to that jack you have your Epson plugged into and seeing if you get a dial tone.

I have a HP 4315 officejet all in one and it prints fine...but when i try to fax a page it fails every time...why?

Good Day Sir, I have a solution to your problem, hope this will help you.

"HP 4315 officejet fax failed"
  • Turn off the machine by using the ON button and then unplug the power cord from the back of the machine. After a few seconds, plug the power cord back in and turn the power on.
  • Try to send or receive a test fax.
  • If you are running the test from the Fax Setup Wizard (windows) or Fax Setup Utility(Mac), Make sure the Machine is not busy completing another task, such as receiving a fax or making a copy. Check the display for a message indicating that the machine is busy.If it is busy, wait until it is finished and in the idle state.
  • Make sure you use the phone cord that came with the machine. If you do not use the supplied phone cord to connect from the telephone wall jack to the HP All-in-One, YOU MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO SEND OR RECEIVE faxes. then after you plug run the test again.
  • If you are using a PHONE SPLITTER, this can cause faxing problems. connect the machine directly to the telephone wall jack.
run the test again to make sure it passes and the machine is ready for faxing.

Goodluck and God bless.

Difficulty sending a fax

Hello. Please make sure your telephone line is plugged into the correct outlet.

Most fax machines typically allow you to plug the line (the cord that goes from the fax machine to the wall jack) and and a telephone (the telephone connects to the fax machine).

In order to fax correctly, you must plug the line into the jack with a block (looks like a 'T') marked on it. Do not plug the line into the jack marked with a phone hand set marked on it.

This shoulds in detail how to connect the line properly. For this printer the line cord must be plugged into the jack labelled "L"
This will show you how to actually send the fax. On your PDF View select page 42.

Fax won't fax

We have the same problem and the fax will send and receive only if the printer cord is pulled out of the back of the printer. I just keep the printer cord pulled out and put it back in only when I need to print a document from the comptuer.

Connecting unit for sending faxes

I Googled the manual and was trying to program the unit with the fax header for date and time when I realized that this unit does not fax! The G55 only prints, scans, and copies.

My girlfriend gave me this unit specifically to address my need to send faxes in my business. I guess she assumed that being an "all-in-one" unit it did faxes too. It doesn't.

So my question is now moot but I still have the problem of not being able to send faxes.

My model Kodak 5500 printer/fax

Just found your post and I'm having the same problem. Everything else seems to be working correctly. I can copy, scan, print and I THINK I can send a fax correctly, I should have called the person and made sure it arrived. However, I cannot receive faxes. I have an answering machine on the line, but it is not plugged into the Kodak Pinter, it is in another room. The answering machine answered the call, the FAX noise came across, but the Kodak Printer never picked it up and printed out the fax. I think I have all the settings correct, but the instructions are not very clear. Do you think I HAVE to have the answering machine plugged into the Kodak Printer? That doesn't make sense, but I might try it.
