Although I have a Brother 420CN that I had similar problems with, the instructions for checking the lines remain the same I'm sure. Double check the telephone outlet by plugging in a separate phone connection. If there is a dial tone, you know the line is good. Next double check that you have the Ext Line cords on the fax machine input correctly.
Make sure your fax cord runs directly into the telephone jack on the wall - do not plug fax cord into a 2 way or 3 way adapter to the phone jack. You can however use a line filter (cord with jack plug that's usually provided by the manufacturer - check your phone box if you still have it) and plug the fax cord into that.
Eventually I did manage to get this to work for me - after numerous tech support calls to my phone provider!

Make sure you have a dial tone by plugging a different phone into the jack. then make sure you have it plugged into the jack on the fax that says line.

No phone service and no dail tone

Two questions for you: Have you called your cell phone company in order to activate your phone? If you purchased your cell phone at a store, did they offer to activate your phone?
Try either of these and see if activation is your problem.

No Dail tone on Line 2. We have 4 lines in total. Today when we pick up line 2, it's open and there is no dial tone. How do we fix this?

It's a good bet that the line is dead before it comes into the building. Call your service provider and start a trouble ticket.

Line in use

Your installation may be faulty. If you have to connect the phone to the MFC make sure that the wire that comes from the wall outlet is plugged in the LINE socket on the machine. A wire must then come out from the Phone Socket on the MFC to the phone.

If you do not use the MFC as a fax machine, better disconnect it from the phone line. Connect it only at the time you have to send a fax.

Samsung 816 power outage dailing an outside line

First thing you should verify a dial tone on the fax machine. (use any analog phone)
If you have dial tone, press 9 and then a number
Second is it conected through tel. system? (did it have an internal extension) and there is no dial tone then your analog port may be fried. Call your telephone vendor. He should be able to help you.
You can purchase a manual for about 10 dollars
Email your system model number to sales at for further instructions

Our company has a Panasonic kx-t7731 main line has no dail tone.

On that phone, press PROGRAM the button and dial 01 STORE.

Press program again to exit programming.

It's not likely you'll be needing the Group Log In/Out button.

bring your phone to its service center.
have it check, maybe the problem is inside the telephone.
maybe it affected the inner core of the phone's board.
had a problem like that also,
we just brought it to its service center.
and they had to change some stuff..
then it worked again.
no charge if under warranty.
but its P500.00 if not on warranty
