Fax machine cuts in when dialling up internet

When I dial up the internet (hmmm, yes I'd love broadband!) the fax machine cuts in before the internet is connected, and looks as though it's going to 'receive' a fax. I have to push 'stop' to let the internet connection go through. I'm sure it's in the set up of the fax machine, but blowed if I can find out where!

Many if not most Fax machines made in the last 5 years, the fax has priority answer set into them.
No way to turn that off. It will answer the line first.
I fought that for quite a while replacing boards and settings. Just takes priority.

On 6-4-2012 could send fax, now 6-07-2012 can't send or recievsed fax


Please check the settings on the fax machine. check the line to the fax and also the connectors, check using a phone to hear the dial tone.
If this seems good check if the fax dials the call, if not check the settings for pulse or tone and reset. If there is not dialling then the fax machine has problems that are serious which might need careful probing.

How I can receive fax through computer with HP1312?


Hi a barati75

A fax transmission is an analogue communication that was possible on a computer with the old technology of Dial up Modems, which accessed the internet by dialling like a landline telephone. The Broadband Modems (or Modem/Routers) in widespread use today have an 'always on' internet connection and, therefore, no dialling is involved in internet access using them.

You can send a fax by dialling out on the All-in-one printer's telephone number pad. Receiving a fax automatically requires you to have the All-in-one printer's Transmission/Reception Settings set to 'Automatic'.

This fax setup requires the printer's fax cable to plugged directly into an empty Telephone Line Socket on the ADSL filter that plugs into your Telephone Wall Socket and has inputs for your Modem (or Modem/Router) and a Telephone line. If, as is common, your ADSL Filter only has a single Telephone Line Socket and you also require a telephone to be plugged into the same socket as well as the Fax Machine component of your printer, then a Telephone Line Socket Doubler must first be plugged into the Telephone Line Socket of the ADSL Filter which then receives the Fax Line into one socket and the Telephone Line into the other. Please note that every Telephone Socket in the building sharing the same circuit/telephone number must also have an ADSL filter between it and any telephonic device (Telephone/Fax Machine/Answering Machine/Stock Control linked EPOS (Electronic Point of Sale) System/Card Payment Processing Machine, etc.), in order to enable both Computer Internet Data and Telecommunications Data to share the same line without conflict.

Your question asks whether a fax can be received "through" the computer. The above description enables your printer to send and receive faxes 'independently' of the computer while simultaneously providing the computer with printing, scanning and copying functions. For faxes to be sent and received via the computer, software is required. The simplest and most efficient of which is Efax (Electronic Fax (available from www.efax.com) and other similar software available from a variety of suppliers. This software enables the user to send any document or image stored on the computer by fax (without first having to print it) and to receive faxes, at any time, in the form of attachments to e-mails that the software opens, usually as a non-editable PDF or other similar secure Document Format. Faxing a physical document via Efax requires the user to scan the document and save it on the computer first, before sending it.

A combination of a Standalone Fax function setup using ADSL Filters and Socket Doublers + Efax gives the user optimum flexibility in sending and receiving faxes.

I hope this helps.

Is there a touchtone on the fax phone? mine dials


Go into menu, and find 'Fax settings', using arrow keys, press enter.
scroll through menu until you find 'Fax send' menu , or similar, and press enter.

Find the 'Dial type' setting, press enter, and select 'tone' dialling, (NOT Pulse), and press enter.
Exit from menu.

The enter key might appear as a green 'tick' or 'OK' key.

International dialling codes


After dialing 011, the 3 digit code for Lithuania is 370. Dialing 011+370+(phone number) should work. Add 2 0's to the370 if a 5 digit couintry code is necessary. Below is a link to help with interational calling. All the best!

Cannot fax using epson bx300f


This response is a little late, but it's because you all appear to have something other than an Epson C86, under which your problems are listed! Eoromarts problem is super-generic. It could be due to hundreds of reasons ranging from "because I was in Blackpool at the time" to "my wife had borrowed the modem cable for a washing line". Come on, you need to give a lot more information than that!. McFax - your problem is simply not understandable please be much more specific!.

However, we may be able to help Stretchyd who has provided actual information on his problem. You cannot send faxes by Broadband. You need a good old-fashioned dial-up modem (which we all used to use to connect to the internet before broadband). You clearly have one of these, otherwise you wouldn't be able to receive faxes.

So you should have a cable from your Broadband modem to the phone line, going into the broadband (DSL) filter ADSL port. You should also have a cable running from your dial-up modem socket into the broadband filter phone port (you may also have a phone going into this, so you will need a phone socket doubler to take the phone wire and the dial-up modem wire).

So, to send a Fax, you need to run your Fax program (usually the Windows XP fax module) and set up your system for dialling out. If you need help with this post a new connebt.

NO DIAL TONE


If you are using the same phone line on broadband and fax, you may need to use a filter for the fax line. Also make sure the phone line is plugged into where it says "line" side of the fax and not where it says phone.

Hope this helps...
