Call your fax machine with your cellphone to see if the fax machine responds.
The other party is probably calling a wrong number (your main voice line).

Cant receive faxes. constant busy signal when dialing in.


Hi Janet
Try using a standard phone to call your Fax Line
Connect a phone to this Line to test for voice
Disconnect Fax Machine from Phone Line
Reset Fax machine
The Fax machine is supposed to respond to the right tones being sent down the voice line
If it is not responding & all else works then check your Fax settings for "Receiving"

I am trying to fax, but I keep getting a "busy"


Make sure you have pluuged the telephone line lead into the "LINE" socket and not the "TEL" socket of the fax machine. I reckon thats why you are not dialling out correctly. If this is in an office, make sure you are dialling the access number for an outside line, usually a 9 before the phone number.

My Brother MFC7340 Fax Machine will not send faxes it has a busy signal always and a busy signal when someone tries to fax me.


Hi,
You need to reset the memory, since previously you have dialed some number, which is not able to connect. So restart the printer. Unplug the printer for 10 minutes and plug back the power to the printer.

Hope this helps.

Our fax machine keeps saying "busy/no signal" even when we know the machine we're trying to send to isn't busy. Please give us some suggestions as to how to correct this problem. Brother...


Verify the connectivity (phone line) first by pluging a working telephone in the wall jack, than test the cable from the wall jack to the fax, you could install a Y to plug a working telephone with the fax on the same line to spy on what is happening when the fax is engaging a connection.

Hope this helps!

Wont send message. Error no 442


This error indicates that the receiving machine (receiver) cannot receive the fax you just sent. The reasons might be unexpected shutdown of the machine (Receiver's machine) just before it completely received [or partially printed] the file you had sent or power failure during the process.
Another reason is, when we send color fax from Hp machine to another Machine (non-hp), this happens due to incompatibility issue.
Solutions are;
1. Restart both the machine after deleting the recently sent/received fax.
2. Send black and white only, not color.
3. Try again after the phone line seems not much busy which means when there's better transmission capability.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

I have a hp fax 1010 problems sending receiving


Are you plugging the phone line into the line jack or the phone jack on the fax machine, it should plug in to line. Also try and unplug/replug the units power cord as well as trying a different phone jack location.

Receiving error


Ok...so I fixed my own problem. I had printed out a system data sheet on my fax machine and found out that the "error" was in under sending confirn, so I went into my menu to the sending confirm section and turned it off. Then my boss tried sending the fax and it came through like nothing was ever wrong...I think the other day when my Iguana got in my office, he must have done something, as I found him perched on my fax machine....hmmmm. Thanks for the follow-up email.
