Fax machine isn't able to recieve or send anything

Make sure there is a dial tone on the phone reciever. If there is not check the connections, the cord could be damaged or disconnected. If there is, check the Recieve mode.

Sending a fax

First make sure that the fax button has been pushed and is llit...

The 2820 should have a handset. In order to use manual transmission (when you get to hear all the beeps and whistles) you will need to load the document then pick up the handset. then dial the number, when you hear the recieving fax tone then hit the start button.

The 2820 should also have a hook hold button pressing this will allow you to hear the dial tone and the numbers you dial along with the receiving fax tone. If you dont hear anything when you press this button then you may want to use the volume buttons to increase the volume.

Also remember that if you have not picked up the handset or pressed he hook/hold button the unit will use automatic mode, which is to say that all you will do is load the document, dial the number, and then press the start button.

you could try pressing the on hook dial button once you have a dial tone dial the fax number you are trying to reach and then you will be able to hear f there is a fax tone form the other machine or a error message from your operator. If there is a series of beeps with the document in the feeder press send.

The most common cause of not sending is ECM (Error Correction Mode) press menu and within TTI settings make sure this is turned off.

Hope this helps you
Thanks J
