For some reason all your question is not shown here or what it is you have already done. Have you replaced your driver? Did it just quit working? Have you upgraded your operating system before it quit working? If so or do this anyway. Uninstall your driver and ,Reinstall your software for your Multi-Function Center.

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 a brother called MFC 8660DN, he is not recieving or sending any fax since this morning and i can't find the problem.

Try these things below to narrow down the problem.
  1. Plug a standard phone into where the fax line is plugged into to check for dial tone. if you have dial tone try replacing the phone line between the wall and fax. If not you have a phone line issue.
  2. Make sure the printer is actually responding to print commands from a computer, this could indicate a hardware issue if it does not.
  3. Check the ink levels. If the printer thinks it is out of ink then it will not print faxes.
I hope this points you in the right direction Regards GM

I am unable to send fax, I get a 'phone line error' message. The phone line is fine, I checked it by pluging a seperate phone into it. When I go to 'On Hook Dial' I do not get a dial tone on the fax...

Please check the dial tone by following the instructions given below:
1. Press "Fax Mode."
2. Press "Menu."
3. Press "Up Arrow" or "Down Arrow" repeatedly until On Hook dial is highlighted.
4. Press "Select" twice.
You can now hear the dial tone of the telephone line.
5. Enter the number to which you want to send a fax.
Note: Press the keypad numbers to use an automated answering system.
6. Press "Start Black."
