Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

I can not figure out how to use my fax machine! It keeps telling me all the numbers are busy when I know they are not. I have my phone line plugged in to the back where it shows a picture of a phone, is that right.

You have plugged into the right port. But when you pick up the fone do you hear a flat tone?. If so your machine is working properly, but i dont know why it says all phones are busy. Also if you have its instruction manual you can consult it. Please state the model of your Fax to facilitate further in solving your problem. Moreover have you tried a regular fone in the same port you are using for fax. if not please do so and see if it is able to make calls or not.

Can not get a dial tone. Phone appears to be off the hook. How do I trouble shoot it?


Unplug the phone line from the fax machine. Wait at least 1 minute then call the phone number that goes to the fax machine from another line such as a cell phone. Make sure you get a ring and not a busy signal. If you get a ring then hang up the phone. Plug in the fax machine again and call the fax number again. If you get a busy signal then either your phone if off the hook, the switch that is actuated when the phone is placed in the cradle is bad or your modem in the fax machine itself has gone bad. Another thing to try is unplug the fax machines power cord for 30 seconds then plug it back in. I have seen the modems get "locked up" and keep the phone line open. Unplugging will sometimes reset this and get it working again.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Can not receive or send faxes???


If your fax machine was working before this could be a line problem. Call your fax number with your cell phone or another phone. If you get a message phone the phone company or it just rings busy its probably a line problem. Another check is to plug your hand set into the wall outlet jack, you should hear the dial tone. If there is no dial tone its also a line problem. Or just try pluging your fax machine in at another location, if it works there you know its a line problem. If its still not working its going to be one of the boards inside the fax machine. Good luck.

MY HP 5610 ALL - IN- ONE is telling me that every fax number I dial is busy.


You have a bad phone line OR they are busy. Call the numbers from a regular phone to listen for fax tones.

When I dial a fax number I get a busy signal even though I know that the number is not busy because I have dialed it on my outside line and it works. This has happened repeatedly. I have unplugged...


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.

Can't receive faxes


Something is causing the fax machine to "trip" to busy. There is some type of short occuring either in the fax machine or the physical phone line itself. Unplug the fax, plug in a regular single line telephone. Call the fax number from another telephone. If the phone rings and you can talk to the other party, the problem is in your fax machine. If the call still is busy, the problem is in your wiring, either in your office or the phone company network.

Cannot figure how to set up Canon MP830 All in One Fax machine with remote answering machine


Cannot figure how to hook up Canon MP830 all in one fax with remote answering machine. I can plug in phone line to send faxes fine but when hooked up in same hole and the phone rings it goes immediately to fax and can't receive phone calls. Maybe i have phone line hooked up in wrong place on my machine. The answering machine is in our master bedroom on the other side of the house. With my last a canon also i had it hooked up to go to fax after a certain amount of rings and it worked fine. That machine got fried by lightening and i replaced it with this machine. If anyone knows what i am doing wrong i really need this fax hooked up all the time for my business.
