You need to find out why the printer is not returning to an on-hook condition.

My best suggestion to contact the Epson Support team for assistance.

Also, check in your manual for setting the disconnect of the fax line.

How to recieve a fax ?


If your printer is connected to a modem make sure that the port has a dial tone. To check for dial tone, try to plug in a phone to the same port that you printer is connected to. If it doesn't have dial tone, you might want to check with your phone provider. Or you can plug in the printer straight to a wall jack.

Once the printer is connected to a line that has dial tone, you can then setup the printer to receive faxes. To set it up, on the control panel of your printer, press on Setup > Fax Setup > Ringing and Answering.

If you have an answering machine, set your printer to pick up 3 rings higher than your answering machine. If not, set it to pick up on the 5th ring that way you will still have time to pick up the phone if it's a voice call.

If you have a voicemail service from your phone provider, you'll need to contact your phone provider to get a distinctive ring feature. Once you'll have that feature, you can assign a distinctive ring to your printer. You can find that under Fax Setup > Ringing and Answering > Ring Pattern.

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.

No dial tone on phone connected to ext port on epson dx9400f


Buy a double adapter so both cords go to the LINE port. Set your answering machine to 6 or 7 rings so the fax picks up first. Your fax machine will know the difference between voice and fax calls,

Hello. If everything else is working, printing and copying, unplug the printer from the power source. Check the telephone line from your phone company by unplugging the fax machine from the wall jack where it is connected to. Plug a telephone device straight to that wall jack and check for a dial tone. If there's no dial tone, contact your phone company. If there is, plug the fax machine back to that wall jack. You can also try replacing the telephone cable with a another known working cable. Plug the printer back to the power source. Check again. Hope this helps.

Peoplel are sending me very imp. faxes and idk how to recive it..


If your printer has FAX capabilities. Good way to tell is if you have a phone number pad on the front of your printer.

You must have this connected to a phone line for it to receive a fax.
Setup the fax application through your installation CD that came with the Printer/fax machine. Often you set the fax machine to pick up after so many rings. This allows you to leave the printer/fax machine on and gives you time to answer BEFORE the fax machine does. If uncle Bob or Aunt Susie should call to say Hi!

Basically what is happening:
You turn on the Printer/Fax machine it sits idle waiting for a phone call.
Someone now sends you a fax using your phone number.
YOUR printer/fax machine is sitting there listening for the phone to ring.
Lets say you have your printer/fax machine setup to answer after 5 rings.
After 5 rings, your Printer/fax machine will pick up and listen for signal tones from the the other machine. If it gets these, it will "handshake" and send a confirmation fax tone. Then the data will be transferred and printed out on your machine or held in a fax program for you to print or save later.

It is critical that you do not pickup the phone too early or the two fax machines trying to communicate will fail.
If you do this, you will hear an awful squeal and a serious of tones.
You can often hang up quickly and the two machines will transmit again the handshake signals and resume business as usual.

Short answer:
Two fax modems are talking to each other over your phone line to transmit data.

Good luck!
and hope this is helpful.

The phone line is correctly connected to the all-in-one but...


To be sure your phone is plugged in properly try picking up a different phone in your home with the fax also plugged into a phone line. The fax display should indicate "Phone off hook".
If the problem still persits, turn off the power to the printer/fax then turn it back on. This reboots the software and usually fixes the problem.

When you ring it from your biz line, does it pick up? If you're using a high speed dsl line, you'll need to put the machine where a normal phone would go. You should be able to ring the machine using our cell phone. If the machine indicates an incoming call, but still doesn't pick up, check the settings and make sure it isn't set to manual instead of automatic fax pickup.

Can't send out fax


Make sure the phone cord is connected to fax machine in the place marked LINE, then make sure the phone cord is connected to the wall jack. Pick up your handset and make sure you have a clear dial tone also. If you are dialing long distance make sure you have the long distance service.

MP730 fax issue-can't receive fax, but can send out


I think I know why. You need to set the proper priority of your all-in-one Canon device.
If it is TEL priority, it means you need to have a phone connected to the fax. If the phone rings, you need to pick up the handset and check if it's a fax tone or a call. If it is fax tone, you wait for 5 secs til fax tone stops, and then hang up. After that you will receive the fax. Failure to pick up the handset will not allow you to receive the fax. This might be the most probable setting you have, hence you can't receive the fax.
If it is FAX priority, the same thing happens as TEL priority. Only difference is if you don't pick up, and it is a fax, it will still receive.
You can also do FAX only. No need to connect a phone. Device will receive automatically.

INTELLIFAX 2820 NO FAXES COMING THROUGH


Oops, I disconnected from the chat with you after I said I would stay connected. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask them here. Just for our knowledge base, in case anyone else has this problem - it turned out to be a short in the phone line. When picking up the handset connected to the fax machine, there was no dial tone. When connecting the fax machine to another phone line, the dial tone returned. After swapping out the phone cord between the wall and the fax machine to be sure that wasn't the problem, Jriedel is now talking to the phone company about it.
