Hi! I not computer smart nor am I an expert, but try this. I just got my machine.

put the phone jack into the wall to your printer. Put the paper on top to feeder the paper will come out at the very top

next, dial the number using area code, then press either ok or start

Good Luck, I do hope that works.

If it doesn't call dell supporters, they will walk you through it.

Using a toshiba e-studio 190f fax machine, i can not recieve a fax or send a fax. I call the line and it just rings, can youhelp


Make sure you have the phone line plugged in, also make sure it's plugged into the LINE port on the machine. (Ext. is for a extension, i.e. secondary phone for manual dialing)
Also check that the wall jack is functional too, easiest way to do this is hook up a regular phone to the jack and if you get a dial tone you know it's okay.

If the wall jack is getting a dial tone and the line is plugged into the LINE port you may have a bad phone cable, try a different one.

I cant receive fax


Is there a dial tone if you pick up the reciever ? Can you send faxes or use the machine to make a phone call ? If you can make calls or send faxes the machine probably needs to be set to the auto recieve mode so that it automatically answers when a fax is being recieved. If no dial tone you may have a loose connection to your phone jack.

No dial tone when pressing hook fax is returned


The only thing that could stop you from sending a fax or not get a dial tone, would be the connection to the phone line. Make sure the telephone wire is plugged into the line jack (not ext jack) and should go straight to the wall, without splitters or extensions. If you still cannot send a fax, try another wire or jack

Machine scans fax but then says "busy/no response"


try putting your paper in, pick up the handset and dial the fax number, if it rings, you can press send, but if there is a problem with the phone line you will know. Be sure the phone cord is plugged into the LINE jack and not the TEL. If you can get through manually and the phone line seems ok, there may be a problem with the NCU circuit board.

Cant receive fax


FIRST OFF. IF YOU PLUG A PHONE INTO THE JACK DO YOU GET DIAL TONE? IS THE WALL JACK PLUGGED IN TO THE RIGHT JACK ON THE MACHINE? NEXT GO IN TO THE MENUE SET UP FOR FAX. GO TO THE SECTION WHERE YOU WILL SEE EASY RECEIVE AND EASY SEND, ON BOTH OF THEASE PRESS SET OR OK THIS SHOULD NORMALLY DO THE TRICK, IF ALL FAILS, THEN YOU MAY NEED A PHONE BOARD CALLED A NCU BOARD. GOOD LUCK BROTHER SR TECH

Busy/No Response


Using a cell phone, call your fax machine to see if the fax answers. If it does answer, then hang up the cell phone and fax. Next, using the HOOK button on your fax, call your cell phone . The cell phone should ring and answer the phone call from the fax. If you do not get a connection between the fax and cell, try these: Check that the phone line to the fax is plugged into the LINE jack on the fax, NOT THE PHONE jack. The PHONE jack on the fax is to plug in a TELEPHONE ONLY. If the fax phone line is OK, go into your fax machines' RECEIVE and SEND settings and make sure they are set up properly (pulse or tone dialing, overseas mode, etc.) Print out the HELP LIST as follows: Press MENU button, then 5 on keyboard, then 1 on keyboard. Go through all the settings on the HELP LIST that apply to your problem. (Send and Receive modes, Ring Delay, Receive Options,etc.) Write down the original settings BEFORE YOU CHANGE ANY OF THEM.

Can not transmit faxes


do you have a seperate fax line? if so check the fax line.
also in the fax menu set up your fax to phone/fax mode, and set up all your fax info.
if you have distinq ring you need to set up your # of rings.
