We are having issues faxing to one particular number. We think our fax goes through, but spits out a Error 345*. Nothing is sent


fax machines talk to each other before sending data to ensure that the sender/receiver are on the same format and are compatible
for one particular number to be a problem indicates a fax number problem in setting the dialed number area code , dashes etc are all specific
ring the receiving department and ask to confirm that they are having trouble receiving faxes from your number as well

My fax machine MX532 won't let me send a fax though the machine


Hello,

This is probably an issue for the receiving fax. Try this:

1. Find a piece of paper and write fairly large:
Call me if you get this
Your name
Your phone number

2. Send this to a different fax machine at a different company and location. If it works, then attempt to send it to the same fax you initially attempted.
- If it works then your document may be too large and you will have to send it over a couple pages (or less at a time).
- If it doesn't work then there is a compatibility issue with either your or the receiving end fax machine. You will have to find an alternative fax number to a different model fax machine. Don't expect the company on the other end to just change out their fax machine but they may have another model at a different phone number.

Another alternative - you can attempt to scan your documents and send them by email but check with your and the receiving destination security departments.

Best wishes,
Joe

Cannot send or receive faxes to one particular number, but is able to send and receive faxes with other numbers


"cannot send or receive faxes to one particular number, but is able to send and receive faxes with other numbers"

If your machine can receive a fax transmission from one number, it will receive from all numbers.

If your machine can send to all but not to one particular number, please check that there is a fax machine there to receive it.

You can try to send manually and listen for beeps from the other fax -if one is present- then push the START button to initiate transmission.
If their machine is in working order, the transmission should start. (After the initial 'handshake' of course.)

2 fax machines on 1 line


Once you place your both fax machine on same line you will keep getting this issue. Fax machine is waiting for a fax ring signal that your other machine is sending. Shut down one machine when faxing or connect your alt fax machine to a different number this way you can send faxes when need to.

Can receive a fax, but cannot send fax.


I was told by Xerox support tech that he thought it was the fact that we do not have a dedicated analog phone line, but the fact remains we can receive faxes but cannot send them. The only fax that will send is directly to Xerox support.???. The machine was working fine, faxing (sending and receiving), until about a week or so ago, when we had a repairman here on the printer. He told me to report the problem to our telephone repair service. He is coming out today! I'll let you know.

Fax machine will send out but will not receive any


The majority of the time, when you can send but not receive, it is a phone line issue and not the machine. Extremely rare does a machine send and not receive. So here goes the things to try and the reason. 1, Make sure the phone jack is in the "Line" jack and not the external phone jack. Believe it or not, that is the number one issue with sending and not receiving.
Next, plug a phone into the jack that the fax machine is plugged into and see if there is static.
You want to be sure in the fax \settings and advanced settings that the ECM mode is ON, and that Junk Fax ius turned OFF, Junk Fax being on will stop almost all fax from comming in.
Now, the phone line. Here is the explaination of why that can be the problem. When you send a fax, you manually make the connection to the line. When you press send a relay flips and connectes you to the phone line, therefore you have made pretty much a mechanical connection enabling the phone line, and therefore you can send.
Now, when you have an incoming fax, several conditions must me met to make the handshake and therefore connect and receive. These all have to be right in order to properly receive. The phone line voltage mist be high enough, the phone line current must be correct and there can not be much decibel loss over the line. You are making a signal connection, all those conditions must be right to receive a fax. Think of it like a TV remote with batteries that are almost dead, It still send out some signal, but it will not change channels or change the volumn,etc etc. Same principle. If the signal to the incoming fax is weak, chances are it will not connect.

Hp 5610 won't receive fax from lexmark fax


Are you able to receive faxes from others from the same location, if not just ask her to consult her service provider and ask to get the no checked of yours why is it that you she is not able to send fax to you only as your fax machine is capable of sending and receiving fax from others it should be dsome issue with her service provider.
If it was your All-In-One printer thrn you should not have received faxes from any one, not a specific number.

Good Luck

Manual Doesn't Work Either!


Fax machines usually don't have Caller ID. If you see the phone number on received faxes its because the sender has programmed it into their fax machine.

Can't receive fax but can send


Call your cell phone from the fax machine and check the caller ID to make sure that it is the correct number for your fax machine. Next, call the fax machine from you cell phone, and make sure the fax machine rings. Problems like these are almost always a phone line issue, not the machine.

Mode incorrectly switching to Handset


Hi Sue, Can you tell me if there is anything else conencted to your fax line? Most Ricoh products will display handset if the dialtone is not detected. It could be that something is using the line or is causing it to short. Another thing to check if the machine is an older 1515- if this occurs after you receive a fax and you are behind a PBX, there was a batch of modems in the Ricoh machines that had a problem with not disconnecting the line, resulting in the handset being displayed. Could be any number of items, normally I would start the troubleshhoting with line issues and go from there.. Brad
