Re: discription of connecting jacks at back of printer

It's the "Line" jack that you want to be using.

If there's a "Tel" or a port marked with a picture of a phone, that's for connecting a phone handset to.

Please be sure that you have the fax line in the correct jack on the back. Some of the HP modems will actually send a fax if you plug the telephone cord from the wall into jack that is supposed to have a telephonep plugged into it. On the back of the 1522 there are two phone jacks, the upper one is where the cord from the wall plugs in. Also ensure that if you have DSL service that you have a filter in the line for the modem.

All of sudden the fax component will not send or receive. Checked phone jack with plugging in phone and getting dial tone. Lights up/scans/ tells you to dial number but than nothing

Is this HP Printer ?

Disconnect the power cord from back of printer ( while printer is on )
while holding power button printer - connect the cord.

Under Setup - Advance Fax Settings - Turn off ECM
Under Setup - Fax settings - Reduce the Fax Speed to slow

try to send fax.

We keep getting an error code 344* when we are trying to transmit a fax. What can we do to fix this?

Error 344 means :-

The remote machine has failed to respond to a fax command from the product because the connection is interrupted.
The remote user has pressed the Stop button while the remote machine was receiving.
Under rare conditions, incompatibility between the two machines can cause the remote machine to simply abandon the call.

Solutions :-
  1. Attempt to send the fax again when telephone-line conditions have improved.
  2. If the fax session was using error correction, disable ECM.
To disable ECM Press :-
  1. Press Setup .
  2. Press the Down arrow (c00326489.gif ) repeatedly until Advanced Fax Setup displays.
  3. Press OK .
  4. Press the Down arrow (c00326489.gif ) until Error Correction Mode displays.
  5. Press OK .
  6. Press the Right arrow (> ) until either OFF or ON displays.
  7. Press OK .
  8. Send another fax to verify that the ECM is enabled or disabled.
Check the Phone Cable connected with the printer.
Make sure the Cable should be connected to line 1 port at the back of the printer and it should be going directly from the printer to the wall jack and not to the Serj protector.

Try to print a fax test page.
  1. On the control panel of the product, press the Setup button (c01361401.gif ).
  2. Press the Right Arrow button (c01185072.jpg ) to select Tools , and then press OK .
  3. Press the Right Arrow button (c01185072.jpg ) to select Run Fax Test , and then press OK . The product displays the test results on the control panel display and prints the Fax Test Report.
Now Do this :-
  1. Send a one page black and white text fax to 1-888-hpfaxme (1-888-473-2963).
  2. When your fax is received by the HP Test Fax Service, we will generate a return fax to you within five minutes confirming that we received your fax. This verifies that you can both send and receive a fax with your fax machine.
If you do not receive a return fax within 5-7 minutes, there may be a problem with the setup of your fax machine. Consult the user manual that came with the product for proper setup and configuration. Try the above steps and let me know if it works for you.

Does not recognize phone connection --can not send fax or receive fax--no connection. phone line is direct--works good

Hi. Here are some things you need to check: 1. Check the physical connection. Make sure the phone cable you're using is still in good condition. No obvious defects. 2. There are two phone ports behind the printer- Ext and Line. The phone jack from the wall should be plugged in to the Line port of the printer and not in the Ext. port. 3. Make sure to enter your Fax name and the correct Fax number in the printer. These are the basics on how to setup the printer for faxing. Hope these helps.

Not sure if i have the fax connected correctly in

You don't need a modem to send/receive a fax.Plug it into the wall jack. Plug the other end into the "line" jack" on the fax machine. That's it.

I need to setup my Brothers MFC-620N to send and receive faxes

from the phone wall jack - connect the supplied phone cord to the wall jack and the other end goes into the LINE port of the printer.

then press setup - goto fax settings (default settings will do)

goto and send yourself a fax transmission (it's free and it's what i am using for troubleshooting) - that's for the receiving part, for the sending - find a friend :)

Problem sending & Receiving Fax Imageclass D880 Canon All in one printer

#0018 indicates there was a problem with dialing, but it should show for sending faxes only. Since you can neither send nor receive faxes, and are getting a message saying "no signal", make sure that the phone line is still securely connected to both the L (line) jack on the machine and the phone jack in the wall. If it is, plug another phone into the accessory jack on the machine, and check to see if you are getting a dial tone. It seems like the machine is not able to communicate through the phone line.

Pixma MP530 Fax Problems

I am having a similar problem. You do have to connect your phone to the jack in the machine in the "Phone" jack slot, as well as have another line out to the jack in the wall in the "L" slot. That is all I know. I am having problems with my voicemail. Either I can received voicemail, and no faxes, or faxes, and no voicemail (fax picks up at specified number of rings). It is EXTREMELY frustrating. The machine is *supposed* to be able to discern between phone calls and faxes..and that is not happening.

Have you come across a solution? Aghhhhh!

Fax doesn't recognize incoming phone call

Try this: using a cell phone, call your fax. Listen on the cell for a busy signal, fax tones, dial tone, etc. If the fax does not answer the cell, check the following: make sure the phone line is plugged into the LINE jack on the fax, NOT THE PHONE JACK. The phone jack is to connect a TELEPHONE to the fax. If problem still exists, press MENU on your MFC, and scroll to GENERAL SETUP, FAX. Scroll to SETUP RECEIVE, and, after writing down the settings, try changing the RING DELAY or RING TIME settings. If problem is still there, press CLEAR/BACK button until GENERAL SETUP appears on screen. Scroll down to INITIAL SETUP, and select RECEIVE MODE. Try changing RECEIVE MODE settings. Write them down before you change anything.
