If you have hi speed internet make sure you are using a filter on the phone line from the fax machine.

Unplug the fax machine from the line. Plug a normal phone, preferably not a cordless set, into the line and check if the line is still noisy. If it is still noisy have the phone company test and repair the line. If it is not noisy check the connecting cord between the phone jack and fax for damage. The cord can be replaced with one from a normal phone to see if this solves the problem. If the line checks out normal and the problem persists even with the cord replaced the fax will need repair, most likely to the internal lightning arrestor which is not a user-serviceable part.

    Did you use another phone on the line to prove that the line is working as suggested?

Go to menu option and choose the option fax and set the parameter like auto receive or manual set the ring auto answer mode after certain ring. If it is in auto receiving mode it will receive the fax after the ring which you set. Make sure the phone wire which you insert in fax machine getting proper dial tone and getting out going calling facility.

How do i know if my fax machine works because i could receve but i cannot send any fax


first are you on a digital line or a normal home line not VOIP? second get a phone if you are on a normal line and see if there is a dial tone, while using the same cord to the phone as you are with the printer. Third after detecting a dial tone use all 10 numbers. XXX-XXX-XXXX. you have to have a phone line plugged in to get this to work it does not work wireless or Ethernet for fax.

here is your manual http://usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/printers_multifunction/office_all_in_one_inkjet_printers/pixma_mx410#BrochuresAndManuals
now just choose mac or pc and go from there.

Status 50 on a fax estudio 45


the number is busy. Try pressing the monitor button and listening for a dial tone. No dial tone means your phone line is not working. If you have dial tone, dial the number you wish to fax and listen to see if it picks up. If you get a busy signal, or hear someone answer, that is why it's not working. If you hear the fax tones, press start and send your document. This is a way to fax that allows you to hear the whole process.

Sending a fax


First make sure that the fax button has been pushed and is llit...

The 2820 should have a handset. In order to use manual transmission (when you get to hear all the beeps and whistles) you will need to load the document then pick up the handset. then dial the number, when you hear the recieving fax tone then hit the start button.

The 2820 should also have a hook hold button pressing this will allow you to hear the dial tone and the numbers you dial along with the receiving fax tone. If you dont hear anything when you press this button then you may want to use the volume buttons to increase the volume.

Also remember that if you have not picked up the handset or pressed he hook/hold button the unit will use automatic mode, which is to say that all you will do is load the document, dial the number, and then press the start button.

Recieving faxes
  • Plug a regular, non-digital, phone into the fax's phone line and see if you get a dial tone
    • If you do not have a dial tone, seek support from your telephone service provider
  • Dial the fax number from a phone    
    • Normal circumstance is that you will have the fax machine pick up and make high-pitched noises
    • If the fax does not pick up, put a regular phone on the fax line and see if the regular phone rings when dialed
      • If the phone rings, answer it and see if there is line noise
        • If the line is clear, call the service number listed on your fax
        • If the line is staticy or unclear, call your telephone service provider
      • If the phone does not ring, call your telephone service provider
Sending faxes
  • Attempt to dial the fax number you are trying to send to from another phone.
    • If you hear electronic noises on the line, the other end has a fax machine on the other end
      • Check to see if you can recieve faxes.
    • If the remote fax does not answer, the problem is on the remote side, contact the recipient

Not receiving faxesBrothers fax-190


The phone line to begin with, can you get a dial tone when you press speaker button? Is it clear?  if no dial tone  then,  Is the phone line from the wall plug into the correct socket of the fax machine ? (it goes into the one marked line, not the ext one).....

next trick would be to plug in a normal phone to wall socket to insure we have dial tone and eliminate it being a telstra fault,

 

 Could also be wise to check filter is installed on that line if we have recently installed ADSL Broadband.
