"no answer" on receive

If you are recieving faxes normal and you get this message once in a while its more likely someone is tring to call you via the phone or if you press the HOOK button and you press the GREEN start key the machine will go into recive and time out if it doesn't hear a fax tone within 30secs it will time out and give ypu this message.

I can send but cannot recievefax. Fax is on SLEEP all the time.

The machine is set with the sleep mode as a default. The fax part can be changed to recieve a fax by pressing the fax mode button. Press it until it says Fax only, not F/T. F/T means Fax/Telephone. This mode would make it to where you have to pick up the reciever and press start when a fax comes in. The Fax only mode means it will pick up everytime a fax comes in automatically. Let me know if this was helpful. Please give my helping a rating. Thanks!

Manual Reception
Pick up the handset while the phone is ringing.

Sending a fax

First make sure that the fax button has been pushed and is llit...

The 2820 should have a handset. In order to use manual transmission (when you get to hear all the beeps and whistles) you will need to load the document then pick up the handset. then dial the number, when you hear the recieving fax tone then hit the start button.

The 2820 should also have a hook hold button pressing this will allow you to hear the dial tone and the numbers you dial along with the receiving fax tone. If you dont hear anything when you press this button then you may want to use the volume buttons to increase the volume.

Also remember that if you have not picked up the handset or pressed he hook/hold button the unit will use automatic mode, which is to say that all you will do is load the document, dial the number, and then press the start button.

When I attempt to fax something, a printout comes out that says it failed due to poor line condition. This never happened before and all the phone lines in my home work fine.

can you recieve faxes okay or isit just when you send ? you should know that your fax machine will not work properly if you get any staic in your phone line, you may want to check by listening to that particular line or you may have it plugged in the wrong socket. the correct one is the one labeled " L " or line and not telephone.

Thank You,
