Panasonic KX-FM220 fax machine does not have a dial tone

My Panasonic KX-FM220 fax machine does not have a dial tone. I have hooked-up this machine in two different locations. I can copy and print reports on this machine. Any suggestions on how to get a dial tone would be appreciated.

    I have the same problem with my KX-FP155. Is there a solution? By the way, it only has one line socket on the back so I'm not hooking it up incorrectly. Have tried other combinations of wires and phones and it's just the Panasonic that doesn't have a dial tone. Is it a common problem - do I need to contact Panasonic (expensive I assume).

Connect a known working telephone to it, if the phone works, your machine needs repair, if not it is a telephone line problem.

SOURCE: 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 =)

Unable to get an outside line / dial tone from my phone (KX-T7735-B) originally erroneously reported as a KX-T7335


If this is VOIP then the problem is with Comcast. The settings need to be set to recognize a two line phone. The long way around this is to find out the equipment they are using for switching from a digital to an analog signal and call the manufacturer for help.

My panasonic kx-fl501 fax message says please wait and the keys don't work


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.

Printing report or making copy


Lift up the operation panel and look for debris on the small glass strip.

If that's clean, you might have a defective thermal head.

Panasonic KX-FL511 cannot receive faxes but can send


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.

Thank You,

Mikey
