Hi ive got this bt phone and have it pluged in to a fax phone machine for the answering machine but I cant get it set up as I record the message but when u ring u cant here it

A fax phone answering machine would usually be supplied either with a standard handset or with a modified one-piece phone.

I have owned a number of fax machines and have yet to find one where there is a facility to plug in another standard phone except at the line plug itself.
The fax line plug usually serves as an adapter which provides a standard telephone socket into which a standard phone can be plugged in. It is wired so when making or answering a call, the phone used takes priority over the other and effectively disables it.

I have found the socket adapter provided by the fax line plug isn't suitable for an answering machine and a separate standard socket must be used.

Do you have the phone line pluged into the LINE plug not the Telephone Plug?

Is the fax line analog line can not be digital if internet is over the phone line need DSL filter. Use only a 2 line phone line not a four wire line. If you have a two fax input then you can fax and receive faxes at the same time.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

Can not receive or send faxes???

If your fax machine was working before this could be a line problem. Call your fax number with your cell phone or another phone. If you get a message phone the phone company or it just rings busy its probably a line problem. Another check is to plug your hand set into the wall outlet jack, you should hear the dial tone. If there is no dial tone its also a line problem. Or just try pluging your fax machine in at another location, if it works there you know its a line problem. If its still not working its going to be one of the boards inside the fax machine. Good luck.

Fax is trying to answer my phone

Check the settings of your fax. You have to set it on which ring you wish it to answer. You can't fax without having a hard line phone plugged in. Also, you must have a filter on your fax line if you use DSL.

Difficulty sending a fax

Hello. Please make sure your telephone line is plugged into the correct outlet.

Most fax machines typically allow you to plug the line (the cord that goes from the fax machine to the wall jack) and and a telephone (the telephone connects to the fax machine).

In order to fax correctly, you must plug the line into the jack with a block (looks like a 'T') marked on it. Do not plug the line into the jack marked with a phone hand set marked on it.

This shoulds in detail how to connect the line properly. For this printer the line cord must be plugged into the jack labelled "L"
This will show you how to actually send the fax. On your PDF View select page 42.

Fax machine not sending or receiving

First of all have you pluged a phone into the phone cord of the machine ? Just to verify the phone line.
Is your phone number and ID entered into the machine?
If that information was somehow deleted, that has to be reentered for the fax machine to work. Thats a legal thing.
If the phone line is fine and your ID is properly in the machine and it still is not working then you have a bad fax modem board.
hard to tell you much more without knowing the make or model number.
