I cannot send fax


Hi there!



For you to send a fax with the Brother Fax you can try these steps:

1. First make sure that you have a dial tone by lifting the handset or just by pressing the hook/speakerphone button. Once you have verified you have a dial tone press the hook button again to return to the main screen or hang up the handset. LCD should display the date & time



If you don't have a dial tone make sure that the telephone line cord is connected on the fax machine's Line jack. If you don't have a dial tone still, connect it to another working outlet. If you don't have a dial tone still, connect a working telephone on the wall jack to see if you'll get a dial tone. If you get a dial tone on the regular phone then problem is either with the line cord or the fax machine.



2. Once you have the date & time on the LCD screen, Load the document that you want to send on the automatic document feeder which is directly above the LCD screen.



3. The LCD screen should change from the date/time to "Enter Fax No. & Press Start" Once you got this screen dial the fax number and then press Start.



Hope this helps. Rate if it works.

Thanks!

Fax problem


I want to make sure I understand this completely. You get no dial tone from the fax machine when hooked up to VOIP. In the past, was there an audible dial tone from the fax, or did it just dial silently and give you an error if there was no tone? When you said you got a dial tone by connecting a phone to the ext phone port of "the machine" did you mean the fax machine? If you get a dial tone by running a phone through the fax machine, then the line is good. I have used a fax machine over Sunrocket before they went defunct, which used the same technology base as Vonage - so it should work. If you used to get an audible dial tone when using the fax, and no longer do, and you are geting a dial tone on a regular phone that is connected to the ext. port of the fax machine, then the problem has to be in the fax machine itself, not the VOIP. If you can verify that, we can go from there.

Hi. I have no dial tone on my corded and cordless phones. When someone calls they get a busy signal. What can I do?


There might be another phone off the hook. Check all phones and jacks by removing phone plug from wall jack one at a time and check for dial tone after each one if there is no dial tone plug back in and move to next phone I would try to remove cordless phone first (the cordless phone hub) By the way you only have to remove phone jack data wire not 110 vac power . Hope that helps

The phone lights up when put to charge also the red light on the base,, but when the phone line is connected it wont work ..What do u think is the problem?


The battery in the handset could be bad . First I would test that the base unit is recieving dial tone by pressing speaker button on base unit. If there is dial tone then problem is in handset or in base unit communication to handset. Try resetting power to base unit. Check manual for any re-initialization procedure. If the base unit is not receiving dial tone then I would test that the phone line is delivering dial tone to the base unit by connecting a known good phone to the line cord. If the dial tone is not present , problem could be in line cord from outlet, outlet, building wiring, or service provider.

Continuous open phone line


see what kind of telephone cord do you use.
For Ricoh fax to work properly the telephone cord should have only two wires.
if yours cord has more than two wires don't worry simply on one end of the cord cut the two other wires i prefer to cut the wires on the end where the fax is connected.
Remember cut the two wires from the outside of the cord and left to be connected just the two wires from the inside. As you will see the cord is flat and there has four wires one to another so as i had sad cu the two wires from the left and right side and there will be connected only the middle two wires

Error Message


Try plugging a phone, with a different cord, to the wall outlet the B640 is using. Do you hear a dial tone? If you do, replace the existing phone cord going to your B640. Now press the "hook" button on your B640. Do you hear a dial tone? If you answered yes, what messages are you seeing displayed now? Once I know your answer, we can take it from there.

Panasonic KX-FM220 fax machine does have a dial tone


I would double check your phone cord. There is usually 2 jacks in the back of the fax machine. 1 is for Line, and 1 is for phone.
Your phone cord should be hooked up in the LINE jack that goes to the wall.
I would also double check your phone cord on another phone to make sure the cord is good.
If you look at the clear connector that you plug into your wall and fax machine, does it have 4 copper/gold color wires contacts imbedded in the clear plastic connector?

Another thing to try, if you fax machine has a Line and a Phone connector, try plugging in a phone in the PHONE connector. Then hook up another phone cord going from the LINE to the WALL jack.
If you get a dial tone on your Phone, then you know you have it connected correctly. If no dial tone, then I would go back to the phone cord.
check those things and get back to me and I will see if I can help you with more suggestions.
Good luck.
Mac =)

Phone cords


With the lines lit on the phone, it's indicating an off-hook condition or no battery from the line. Check the lines for dial tone at the demarc to determine if it's phone company problem. Thank you. Jer
