Kindly check the setup. Before anything refer to manual and check that you are getting a dial tone for sending in a telephone set.

Can not receive or send fax. There is the phone tone on the BT line.


When we are speaking about faxes you have to try at least a few numbers, because there is sometimes a temporary problems with tel line speed. To send or receive the fax the tel line should be stable. Fax machine try to connect to highest speed (33,6 by default) and if the line is not stable you will receive connection error.
Try again but tomorrow or ask yout telephone company if there is a problem with line

Can send but not receive faxes


No identification is not the problem. It sounds like you have it set to "manual receive" rather than "auto receive"

My SF-5100 has stoped receiving faxes


Make sure you are set for AUTO RECEIVE.

Unplug power cord and re-connect. Do you have a DSL phone line?

Fax machine will send faxes but will not receive any


The normal problem with a fax that will not receive calls it the phone line.
The Line Voltage, or current may be low, or the signal ( DB loss) may be affecting it.
Let me give you an explaination. When you send, you physically connect to the phone line, make the dial tone and whatever is there, it goes out over the line.
When you receive a fax, it is like a remote control, with a remote you need good batteries to generate enough signal to turn on a product.
With a fax, you require an electrical signal, like a remote control to activate the receive capability. Low power, voltage or current. or static, will not allow it to receive, just like a remote with a bad battery will not turn on a product.
Issues can be. The phone cord between the fax and the jack. A bad jack, something on the outside line.
Using a digital phone line, or having another device on the same phone line drawing down the line, or picking up. A credit card machine, answering machine, even another phone can cause issues. If on a shared phone line, disconnect everthing but the fax and have someone send you a test fax. See if that helps.
But more than 90 percent of fax will send , will not receive issues are phone line related.
