Question about Fax Machines

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.

There is a fax tone when dialling our telephone number.


Set your fax to MANUAL MODE. You will have to press START when you know you are getting a fax.

This is the only way it will work without a dedicated fax line.

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!

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...

No loop current


Check the line cable. Try inserting that line to another telephone unit. And if there's still no dial tone the problem is on the line itself. You should call your line provider. But if the line is ok, check the LIU connectors if it is inserted correctly. It the connectors are ok, then the possible problem is on the tel. line circuit on its mainboard.
