It's entirely possible that your fax machine will just miraculously start working again. If it was hooked up to your computer you'd possibly be getting an error message, which when interpreted by its code number, would tell you it's not receiving the phone signals correctly for a period of time but soon will.

Hope I'm right,

Line in use


Hi there, the fax machine on your all-in-one printer is really handy when it works properly. Getting your fax capability back requires a troubleshootingmag-glass_10x10.gif process that moves through the possible causes of a problem and arrives at a solution. Follow these steps to troubleshoot the fax machine on an all-in-one printer.

  • Plug the power cords in, push the power buttons on and get everything up and running. Sounds simple, but lack of power is the culprit quite often.
  • Step 2.Check for a phone connection in the correct input jack. Some printers with fax capability have more than one phone jack so you can hook up an answering machine or another phone "downstream" from the printer. Consult your instruction manual to determine the right connection for your printer.
  • Step 3.Swap out the all-in-one printer for a working phone to find out if the problem is in the phone line coming from the wall. Once you hook up the phone, you should get a dial tone if the line is working. Remember to reconnect the all-in-one printer after you're done.

    Can't receive faxes


    Hello. Make sure you're plugging the printer to the correct phone jack in the wall. If you're using a splitter, bypass it. Check the settings in the printer. Make sure you assigned the correct Fax number in it and place your Fax name as well. If you're sharing your home phone line with the fax and you have an answering machine, set it to answer first and the Lexmark fax later with a minimum of 2-ring gap. If you have a voicemail, turn it off since it will a conflict with the fax or avail a distinctive ring feature from your phone company so it can work with the fax. Hope this helps.

    What does communication error 20 06 mean on my brother intellifax 4750e? We have been having problems faxing out and customers have called with trouble faxing in. Yet, we have received faxes prior to them...


    CRC error in answerback. It means the error correction digits didn't match the data that was sent. I've seen a few cases where this was bad phone line conditions - once I could see the phone lines scraping against the gutters in the storm outside the window - but usually it's a flaky Main Board in the fax.
    Unplugging all the cables on the board and plugging them back in might clean a bad connection, but we're seldom that lucky.

    Using MagicJack for faxing; however, Brother MFC 290C is stating poor line condition - why? Also say's low ink Magenta - would that create this problem?


    I had the same problem trying to send out faxes out using my Brother MFC 7340. I use a magic jack phone line. Page 106 of the user manual says if sending via VOIP phone line, you should press menu, then 2, 0, 1 to select "Basic (for VOIP) mode. Then press ok. Then press stop/exit. This cuts the modem speed down to 9600 bps and turns ECM off. Then retry to send the fax. I did that and can now send and receive faxes.

    You may wanted to double check if the fax is connected to the phone jack and the cable modem. If it is, and it still doesn't fax... try pressing any key on the fax. Let me know if it works?
    If it doesn't, here's a link to the dept...

     Must have DSL filter attached before fax, not sure how you are saying you have it setup, but phone line should come from wall then to filter then to fax socket marked line, phone should be hooked to socket on fax marked EXT, if you dont have dedicated fax line then fax number will be same as phone no.

     

    If you have Adsl then there will be a lead from wall that splits into two, one goes to your modem (ADSL) and the other marke phone or line needs to go to fax socket marked LINE
