I had this same problem with cable phone - do you have VOIP? you don't get a dial tone - run a splitter to the phone line for your regular phone.
Thanks

    Thanks for the try but everyone please read the post. I have dial tone to the plug where the copier/fax plugs in. The problem is in the copier/fax. I am trying to find someone that may know if I have a bad fax pcb or if there is some kind of reset or fix for no dial tone. If it is the fax pcb within the machine is it possible to get a replacement fax board.

    Hi again
    Do you have a VOIP landline?
    thanks
    Gary


  • myntbook May 12, 2010

    No voice over ip. Single landline with telephone company - not cable company. The telephone line is working.

    Ok- If the phone was working and stopped - there is a glitch in the firmware within the unit. I am not familiar with that. However there is a switch on some of them that makes a difference in the way it communicates with the phone signal. It is set on tone or pulse?
    What I did was but a cheap phone and ran a splitter - one into the phone and the other into the fax machine. This served me well and made it more convenient to answer the phone as I hooked up a speaker phone.
    I can't go any further than this as this is sadly all I know about your unit. My unit is a =LexMARK and ran a little different.
    Best of luck with it.

How to recieve a fax on the Canon PIXMA MX340 Wireless Office All-in-One Printer


Take your incoming phone line and plug it into the place that says "line" on your fax machine. Plug another phone cord into where it says "phone" and connect this to your telephone. Test to make sure you have chosen the right places by dialing a phone number to fax to and listen for the dial tone. If you get a dial tone, then you have set it up correctly.

On the fax machine look for the button that says "menu". Push it and use the up and down arrows to navigate the options on the display. Look for fax set up and press "ok" or "enter" on the fax machines keyboard to access this area. Look for "number of rings" and change the fax machine to a number of rings that is less then your voice mail box if you have one. Then close and save your choices.

Have someone send a test fax by dialing your phone number for the line connected to the machine. The fax machine will pick up on the number of rings set and automatically begin receiving and printing a copy of your incoming fax.

You cannot use magic jack.

You can also choose to manually answer an incoming fax if you see that your display on the fax machine says "ringing" or incoming" you can push the "start" button and this will start receiving your incoming fax.

Since you mentioned that you have an outside line, do you have to use a code to dial out normally? Try plugging in a phone to the line for your fax machine, and attempt to dial the number for the other fax machine using the phone. You should reach the fax and hear a high pitched sequence of tones. This is the other fax machine trying to establish a connection. If you still get a busy signal, try calling the owner and letting them know that their fax machine is not accepting incoming calls.

Ux-p100 fax dont have a dial tone


Check your phone line by plugging a spare hanset into the wall socket (Incoming line) and listening for a dial tone on this. No dial tone - faulty line connection.
Also check you have plugged in to the correct socket on the back of your fax.

Error message -using handset (no handset on the machine. mfd - 1515


If this appear for the first time see the follow, if this started to appear after a time of usage you will need to call a Ricoh technician, sorry but i cannot gain some help in this type of problems.
see do you use a cord with two wires or four for Ricoh when using some telephone centrals like a Panasonic it's better to use a two wired cord for the line, if this still do not help, you will need to call the telephone central technician to set the line for the Ricoh fax.

I have a panasonic hybrid phone system and would like to connect a fax machine, when I connect the fax to the jack, I dont get a dialtone but it goes to the intecom line. The same happens if I connect a...


Hello, you can solve this one of two ways. Try pushing a 9 when you get intercom line, you should get an outside line. So when you want to send a fax, just remember to push a 9, get outside dial tone then dial your number. Or, the second option would be to program that extension jack to auto select a line when going off hook. That will take a manual and some additional guidance. Okay, so thats for making outgoing calls. When it comes to incoming calls, you need to find out what extension the fax is connected to. You can do this by dialing another extension that has a display from the fax machine and see what intercom number comes up on the phones display. So once you know the extension number you can do one of two things. You can leave the fax off since it will most likely ring when any call comes in your office, and only turn it on when receiving a fax. When you answer the fax call on one of your other phones, and hear the beep beep beep, merely push transfer and dial the fax machines extension. That will transfer the incoming fax call to that extension and the fax machine provided you have it turned on. The other option is to break out the system manual(not user guide), and program the fax machines extension to only ring on the line you want it to, say your last line and leave the fax machine on and give out that specific number for faxes. But you do run the risk of your call traffic being heavy, incoming calls rolling over to that line or someone calling that number directly and getting the fax. I think I covered everything I can with the limited information on your application, so I hope that solved your problem.

Me again 2210xi all in one fax problem


The "tags" says no dial tone, so I wonder if you can send faxes? If not I would suspect the connection is not correct. The preferred setup would be to connect the phone line from the wall to the line input of the 2210 and then plug the phone (and answering machine) into the phone output on the 2210. Looking from the back the should plug into the jack on the right and the line to the wall should plug into the jack on the left. It is possible (??) that the 2210 will not present an autoanswer option if an active phone line is not connected. You can see the setup instructions for the Fax here. Note HP recommends using only a 2-wire phone line.

Also, do you have DSL on the same line? This can cause some issues.
