Won't recieve a fax

Everytime someone wants to send me a fax, it states that it has failed, and I can't seem to find the problem. I bought the printer in walmart and now they no longer sell the item.

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.

    Well if this is in a business, have them check the phone line to the business. It won't help to fix the house line if the machine isnt there LOL. Sorry my sarcastic sense of humor had to add that....

CAN T RECIEVE A FAX FOR SOME NUMBERS BUT CAN SEND THEM ONE WHY


I've seen this many times before, when a customer / account gets a new fax machine, or is using a different fax machine. All the other faxes go through without a hitch, except for these. If fax machines become a couple generations apart / 10 years, they won'
t communicate sufficiently enough to make the fax hand shake and the Fax fails to go through.

Some faxes won't send. Recipient will recieve a partial page and then blank pages. Then my machine will tell me there is a "remote fax error". All other functions work great. I use the phone...


The problem could be to the transmission signal. Try to set your Fax Send Speed to 9600 bps. On your printer operator panel, press Setup > Fax Setup > Dialing and Sending > Max Send Speed > select 9600. Hit Ok to save the setting.
Try to send a fax again to verify that the problem is fixed.

With my epson 520 i can recieve faxes but i can't send them.. everytime i send one it says no answer but i verify that the fax line im sending it to does work.


Hey I had this issue as well with my FAX and I validated that my setting were good and I'd even hear the Fax line pick-up and get a "no Answer" error. I went into FAX settings and just turned something called TCM off and then it worked. Maybe it is for sending it to an older Fax machine, but I did get it to work!

The remote fax machine might be defective.

Solutions
  • Try to verify this by sending the same fax to other fax machines. If these transmissions are successful, then notify the user of the remote machine to make them aware of the issue.
  • If the fax fails when sending to other machines, turn it off for 10 seconds, turn back on, and then try sending again.

Same problem


press the setup button and scroll down to tools.
in tools there should be an option that says run fax test.
that would give you a printed page as to which part of the hardware of the printer or the fax line failed.

What your error code means is(look below)

Definition

There is too much noise on the line for a valid connection between two fax machines to complete. The noise problem might go away over time.

Solution

Retry the fax reception at a different time when telephone line conditions have improved. Call the telephone provider if line conditions fail to improve.

Fail to send and recieve


Well it was fixed after I called our telephonecompany.
They told us last Thursday that the lina was ok, but yesterday I talked to a extremely competent callcenteragent and he could confirm the problem lay in the connection.
So, it wasn't a problem wit the JX200 after all.
