Re: cant send fax

Recieving faxes

  • Plug a regular, non-digital, phone into the fax's phone line and see if you get a dial tone
    • If you do not have a dial tone, seek support from your telephone service provider
  • Dial the fax number from a phone    
    • Normal circumstance is that you will have the fax machine pick up and make high-pitched noises
    • If the fax does not pick up, put a regular phone on the fax line and see if the regular phone rings when dialed
      • If the phone rings, answer it and see if there is line noise
        • If the line is clear, call the service number listed on your fax
        • If the line is staticy or unclear, call your telephone service provider
      • If the phone does not ring, call your telephone service provider
Sending faxes
  • Attempt to dial the fax number you are trying to send to from another phone.
    • If you hear electronic noises on the line, the other end has a fax machine on the other end
      • Check to see if you can recieve faxes.
    • If the remote fax does not answer, the problem is on the remote side, contact the recipient

Cant send fax out. getting a message exceeded job memory. How do I clear this

As the model is not mentioned its difficult to right solution. But in general when a document sent from memory some times this happen. This is frequent if memory recieved is more and not printed.
Its cleared on printing all memory recieved or memory cleared(all received fax will deleted).
Also sending fax manually may be done.I.e.Dial the fax no.get the fax tone load the document press start or send. Also in setting the scanning resolution may be minimised up to150/200dpi for less memory.

Cant send or recieve fax

Might be silly question but is it setup to auto transmit and receive? And have you tried to operate it manually? + take out the inline filter fax machines operate on volume'db' to soft and it can't hear, to loud and it can distort sound.

My brother intellifax 4100e is not recieving faxes we can send and I called the fax it works and we can copy but cant recieve.

Does the machine actually answer the incoming call? If so does it give an error code? Are you using the genuine brother line lead? Finally make sure the line lead is plugged into the "line" socket and not the "tel" socket.

Since the fax machine is about 4 weeks old, why not give it back to HP? Warranty still covers it.
