Question about Brother MFC 240C All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Fax not working

I have a Brother MFC 240C and the fax stopped working. When I press the Hook button, there is no dial tone. I have switched cables and tried different phone jacks, but still no success. Everything else works fine.

Any suggestions?

The fax dosn't work,what should I do? I don't have ring tone, and can't receve.


Go to menu option and choose the option fax and set the parameter like auto receive or manual set the ring auto answer mode after certain ring. If it is in auto receiving mode it will receive the fax after the ring which you set. Make sure the phone wire which you insert in fax machine getting proper dial tone and getting out going calling facility.

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.

I moved my printer and phone line around and I can't get the fax to work. My question is which one do I plug into, EXT or line?


Make sure that the line has dial tone. Use an ordinary phone to test the cable for dial tone. On your fax machine, plug the phone cable into "line".

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

No dial tone pressing hook, NG and Poor line condition transmission report on sending and receiving. Confirmed good dial tone on line in and on phone on ext. Copy, display, everything else fine. I hear...


Hello,

Make sure that you have your telephone line from the wall jack plugged into the port on the fax that says "LINE" and that your telephone is plugged into EXT.

All your cables and jacks seem like they are working since your phone gets a dial tone, the onyl thing could be that the wires are mixed or the modem on the fax is broken.

Thanks,

Pat

Brother mfc-260c not recieving fax, has dial tone.


Im not very familiar with that that model in particular. I would check to see if the is an auto recieve button on the control panel or in the fax settings. Just a thought not an absolute solution.
