Borther Fax FMC6550MC does not turn on or activate phone now

I was given a functioning machine without a manual. I hooked it to power and phone line and it worked. After trying to turn down the volume of ring and not being successful without the manual, I turned it off and moved it one room, then plugged it in again. Now it does not work in either room! How wonderful that anyone out there would care to help!
Thank you. Frances.lee@comcast.net

Fax problem


I want to make sure I understand this completely. You get no dial tone from the fax machine when hooked up to VOIP. In the past, was there an audible dial tone from the fax, or did it just dial silently and give you an error if there was no tone? When you said you got a dial tone by connecting a phone to the ext phone port of "the machine" did you mean the fax machine? If you get a dial tone by running a phone through the fax machine, then the line is good. I have used a fax machine over Sunrocket before they went defunct, which used the same technology base as Vonage - so it should work. If you used to get an audible dial tone when using the fax, and no longer do, and you are geting a dial tone on a regular phone that is connected to the ext. port of the fax machine, then the problem has to be in the fax machine itself, not the VOIP. If you can verify that, we can go from there.

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.

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

I have a 2050P fax and it has not been receiving faxes for a week. Is could it just be programmed incorrectly?


Make sure the phone line is plugged in correctly...ie. into LINE not PHONE. Facsimile machines will recieve , normally, without "programming" for sending number or company name. You can also check to see if the line is active by pressing the on hook button for a dial tone.

Sends faxes fine, but will not receive. Message "FAD" on screen


Could the message be reading "TAD"? If you have an answering machine hooked up anywhere on the same line as the fax, you need to refer to page 16 of your manual. Set your answering machine to 2 rings and de-activate the toll saver mode. If you have a dedicated fax line without the TAD, set your fax recieving mode to fax only by pressing the MODE button under the LCD display untill fax only isindicated

Won't recieve a fax


Normally a receive problem is in the phone line. I will explane so you understand why I am saying this and not excusing the machine.
For starters as a resoution, make sure your phone line is plugged into the line slot and not a slot for a phone or answering machine. The slots I am talking about are on the fax machine.
Also if you have the fax on the same phone line with another device. An answering machine, a credir card reader, etc etc, make sure there isn't a conflict. Try just plugging the fax machine into that phone line.
Now to explane. When you send a fax, you manually turn on the phone line when you tell it to fax, Pressing that button energises a relay and just like picking up your phone receiver you turn the phone line on phisically.
When you receive a fax, it has to have the proper signal to electronically activate the fax/modem board.
Issues can be as simple as a bad phone cord between your fax machine and wall jack. They do build up resistance and cause problems.
3 issues are needed to receive a fax. The phone line Voltage must be correct, the phone line current must be high enough and there must not be a decibel loss.
A good example is a remote controle. You have old batteries. Well if you measured the voltage, it would still be 1.5 volts, but it can not deliver anough current to change a channel or adjust the volume all the time. If the line voltage is right, and your phone line it having a problem, it can't deliver enough current to turn on the fax, like turning on a TV with a remote, there is just not anough total power to activate it.
Remove everything else but the fax from the phone line, try it then.
Replace the cord between the machine and wall jack, Try it then.
If that doesn't correct it have the phone company test your line to the house, if thats ok, then repalce your wall jack.
99 percent of the time a phone line will be a problem.
