    I have the same prblem. I cannot receive any fax whenever the fax phone
    rings. It did not even get into receive mode. When I press "hook"
    button there is also no dail tone. I can get a dail tone if i connect
    the fax phone line directly to my phone.



    Any solutions, please??

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

AUTO ANSWER on fax receive does not answer fax.


You need to talk to HP tech support... to do a proper reset you need to access menus that are meant for tech support and developers only. If you "brick" your OJ using those menus on your own (including instructions from anyone here), it's considered customer damage and voids the warranty. If you post your request at the link below, you should get a PM from an official HP tech support person telling you how to do the reset.

Canon mf5770 not receiving faxes


Most fax machines allow you to set the number of times the phone rings before it automatically answers the phone. So if you phone goes to voice mail after 4 rings and the fax machine is set to start the fax after the 5th ring it will never receive the faxes because the call went to voice mail. Good Luck

Fax machine is able to receive faxes, but not able to send them. There is a "No Response" message every time I try to send a document.


Hi, i think your fax machine works fine, A "no response" message indicates that the receiver should accept your fax by hitting on the start button (normally its a green button) for you to able to send a fax or if no one in your friends location is receiving it. In this case you might as well set your fax machine to auto receive fax, defends on your fax machine's model. i hope this helps.

I have an all in one and I can print, scan, and


On the printer press setup-->choose tools option-->under tools-->choose print a fax test page.

Find out how is the printer connected with the fax line.

Note:- Line 1 at the back of the printer should be connected directly to the wall jack of phone line.

Now Follow the instrcution below.
  1. Send a one page black and white text fax to 1-888-hpfaxme (1-888-473-2963).
  2. When your fax is received by the HP Test Fax Service, They will generate a return fax to you within five minutes confirming that they have received your fax. This verifies that you can both send and receive a fax with your fax machine.
If you do not receive a return fax within 5-7 minutes, there may be a problem with the setup of your fax machine. Note:-The most common cause of failure is that the fax number set in the Fax Header on the machine does not match the number of the phone line connected to the fax. Also, ensure that the fax header contains the full 10-digit telephone number of the fax machine, including the area code.

Able to send faxes but unable to receive faxes.


You probably have to set something up in your settings.

Usually this goes: Settings>Fax Setup>Receive

Of course, this is generic, and all Fax machines are different. Is there a model number?

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.

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
