Re: Panasonic KX-FM220 fax machine does have a dial tone
I would double check your phone cord. There is usually 2 jacks in the back of the fax machine. 1 is for Line, and 1 is for phone.
Your phone cord should be hooked up in the LINE jack that goes to the wall.
I would also double check your phone cord on another phone to make sure the cord is good.
If you look at the clear connector that you plug into your wall and fax machine, does it have 4 copper/gold color wires contacts imbedded in the clear plastic connector?
Another thing to try, if you fax machine has a Line and a Phone connector, try plugging in a phone in the PHONE connector. Then hook up another phone cord going from the LINE to the WALL jack.
If you get a dial tone on your Phone, then you know you have it connected correctly. If no dial tone, then I would go back to the phone cord.
check those things and get back to me and I will see if I can help you with more suggestions.
Good luck. Mac =)

Connect the telephone line to the LINE socket of the fax machine and a telephone receiver unit to the EXT socket of the fax machine.
To send a fax, put the document on the platen glass (face downward) or face upward in case of ADF.
press on hook dial, (here the dial tone on machines speaker)
dial the fax no. ( wait for call connection and here the fax Rx. tone)
To receive a fax two procedure can made, manual- lift a hand set of telephone receiver on incoming ring, here the TX tone(periodical beep tone) press * 9 * of the telephone receiver. In auto mode go to fax setup select ans. to ring or auto fax etc. to activate atuo reveive of fax.
I want to make sure I understand this completely. You get no dial tone from the fax machine when hooked up to VOIP. In the past, was there an audible dial tone from the fax, or did it just dial silently and give you an error if there was no tone?
When you said you got a dial tone by connecting a phone to the ext phone port of "the machine" did you mean the fax machine? If you get a dial tone by running a phone through the fax machine, then the line is good. I have used a fax machine over Sunrocket before they went defunct, which used the same technology base as Vonage - so it should work.
If you used to get an audible dial tone when using the fax, and no longer do, and you are geting a dial tone on a regular phone that is connected to the ext. port of the fax machine, then the problem has to be in the fax machine itself, not the VOIP.
If you can verify that, we can go from there.
I realize this thread is old, but I just encountered the same problem with my Panasonic KX-FL501. Pressing #9000* does not work, as none of the key pads are responding. When I lift the receiver I get a tone. But the keys don't respond when I dial. Display shows "please wait"..... I've been waiting for hours.
You only hit hook to hear the dial tone or use the machine like a speaker phone. To send a fax you press fax start. If you can't hear a dial tone when you press hook, there is something wrong with the phone line connection, or it's plugged in to the wrong plug on the machine. The phone line goes into the one marked with an L, the other with the pic. of a phone is for an additional telephone.
is your line provider ok.connect your line to ordinary phone to check if there is really a dial tone from the line provider.if there is a dial tone please let the analog board be cheked by a technician near you
check to see if your phone line is plugged in the " L" or line slot on your fax machine if it is then press the speaker or monitor key and listen for dial tone. then you put a document into the feeder and dial your cell phone number and press send, when your cell phone rings answer and listen if you are getting a high pitched squeel. if you are then it should be working. try it the other way too by dialing from your cell and listen again for the squeel. if you still don't get the squeel you have a defective modem.
