Can't send out fax

When I try to fax, it would suddenly hang up and say " BUSY/NO RESPONSE". Everything is fine, but it would hang up automatically. I tried many companies, it still said "BUSY/NO RESPONSE". What's going on? Please help me to solve it. Thanks!

The number you called does not answer or busy-you may have reached a number not connected to fax or it is connected and not activated in receiving mode-check the number and call again.
if you have a message "out of memory"there is no enough memory available to send your fax.press stop/exit print the faxes stored in the memory to delete them then try again.

I have a Brother mfc 290c. My problem is it won't send faxes, it keeps saying "no response, busy" I have a duet line. I have tried every combination in the book but still can't seem to find the solutions...


Hello,
If you get the "busy/no response" message it is because the fax machine does not get a response when it tries to dial out.
Make sure you have a dial tone by pressing the "hook" button. If you do not have a dial tone, make sure the phone line is connected to LINE on the machine.
If you have a dial tone, try dialing the fax number. If you hear a recording, there is a problem with the line.
One of these two possibilities is causing the problem.
Thanks,
Pat

Problem: Busy/No Response on all outgoing faxes


Put the document you want to send into the transmit tray, pick up the handset, listen for a dial tone, and then dial the # on the keypad..
It should ring just like any other phone. When the machine on the other end picks up and you hear the tones, press the start button.
Anything other than fax tones on the other end, it is not your faxes fault.

The person you are sending to has a busy phone line.

Call your cell phone from the fax machine to test.

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.

We can't send or received faxes


Just a suggestion. This effect can happen if you have plugged the line cord into the tel jack instead of line jack.

I can't fax! BUSY/NO RESPONSE


go into menu
go to fax settings
find send
click auto not manual, please make sure that when you push the hook key you hear a dial tone. always reminder that every fax machine has the capablitiy of either dial or tone. now if everything is set up properly  the problem will be in the tx portion of the board. if you can link up with somebody close to you and try to transmit back and fourth that will let you know if it is their problem or your. it may not be your problem.

Sending Faxes


This could be a cable fault. Get BT to do a line test for you (this is free). If that is OK, change the telephone cable. Perhaps this is on an extention cable? Remove it.
