Fax unable to get dial tone after I switched phone service from verizon to comcast digital

Comcast put in a new cable modem, ran a standard phone line to face plate in wall with two receptacles (essential a splitter); then used the foxconn hp 8120-8344 cord from the fax to the other receptacle in the faceplate. Fax capability was lost.

After switching every possible wire and plugin configuration, comcast tells me they think I need to order another hp 8120-8344 cord and use it from the modem to the wall as well as using the other one from the fax to the wall. They also said I could try putting both cords (standard and proprietary) into an external splitter plugged into just one receptacle.

Help.

Splitters by their nature are flaky..i'd recomend you get a good phone line cable, since they are cheap, and simple..you have another phone line somewhere, to test the fax/cable combination, just to make sure?

8860 wont send or recieve fax on cable modem


Fax machines usually only work over regular phone lines, not through digital cable or DSL systems. If your phone is a VOIP phone, it is a digital system and your fax will not work. It needs to be plugged into the Plain Old Telephone System (POTS) which is an analog system.

When trying to fax i am receiving the message no dial tone. i pick up the receiver to my phone and i hear the dial tone. is there a pne number to call for tech support.


Without knowing the exact model, I am unable to direct you to tech support....A common problem that causes this is either the phone cord is plugged into the out instead of the in jack on the back of the printer. Another possible situation is that you have VoIP phone service (comcast, or vonage) which doesn't provide a true dial tone for faxing, in which case you would need a dedicated phone line for the fax.

Your cable modem is not normally a source for telephone line that the fax machine will support. If you have telephone service through Comcast, You need to contact them about proper hookup to configure your fax line.

I can not send or recieve faxes. Ran fax test


Cox Cable is pretty much the same as comcast's and vonage's services. HP fax machines have had HUGE compatibility issues with those types of services, and may be that they did something to their service that caused your fax to stop working.....

Other than that call HP and see if they have any troubleshooting or Diagnostics that you can run, but I ran in to these problems with HP faxes all the time while installing comcast phone service, never knew WHY it didn't work, just that HP doesn't work on that type of service.....at least certain models...Also maybe call COX and see if they did anything recently that could cause it to stop working....

Cannot send faxes when using cable company's digital voice modem


Fax machines must have a standard analog phone line. They won't work on a digital line and can actually be damaged if hooked up to one.

When I try to fax I get a message that there is no dial tone but I am using a modem from comcast. I contacted comcast and was told to contact lexmark


1) Take a regular phone and test the line
2) Check the status of your modem in your computer

Start >> Control Panel >> Modem

Verify if oyur modem is giving to you a response

3) Check if the cables has been connected into the right port (line in - line out)
