Hi, whenever you have a Phone Line Error, it means that
A: The Line isn't connected.
B: There is a fault on the line prohibiting successful transmission and reception of FAX.
C: There is a fault with the Modem in the FAX.
So Check there is actually a working line & connected up.
Check that the line is OK, get your Telco to test it.
Check the Modem in your FAX. and that the cord is plugged in correctly Check your phone cable.

Fax rec 2-3 pgs OK, then disconnects and gives Comm Error


These errors mean that the communications have failed, and can mean that the receiver at the other end has terminated the call prematurely.
If the problem occurs with the same destination, then the receiver fax may be the problem.
If the error persists try disabling ECM

What does communication error 20 06 mean on my brother intellifax 4750e? We have been having problems faxing out and customers have called with trouble faxing in. Yet, we have received faxes prior to them...


CRC error in answerback. It means the error correction digits didn't match the data that was sent. I've seen a few cases where this was bad phone line conditions - once I could see the phone lines scraping against the gutters in the storm outside the window - but usually it's a flaky Main Board in the fax.
Unplugging all the cables on the board and plugging them back in might clean a bad connection, but we're seldom that lucky.

Brother FAX 8360P comm.error


It could be line noise on the phone.., which allows phones to work ok, but causes problems with faxes. See this document from the brother website concerning comm.error:

Would recommend having the phone company run a line check to make sure the phone line is clean of interference !

Error 232 receiving fax


fax error 232 indicates a communication failure between the sending and receiving units. I'd check for line noise on the phone (you can hear it as cracks and pops) If your fax line is not dedicated, any noise from another phone pickup or an answwering machine can cause the failure.

Incomplete info code 634 how to fix


That codes says:

"Redial count over with no response
or busy tone was not detected.
Note:
U.S.A. and Canadian models
will redial only once if a busy
tone is not detected."

The number you're dialing was first busy. When it went to redial, it detected no phone signal on the other end. If it happens to only 1 or 2 customers, then it's something to do with their lines and you can't fix that.
If it happens often, then get your phone lines checked out by your phone company, make sure your fax is not sharing the line with another other device and make sure it is not a digital line.
Other than that, you're looking at having to replace the main board in the fax. Which basically means it's time for a new fax machine.

Try turning the ECM off. It belongs to the FAX SETUP menu and is explained in the user's manual.
