Problem with fax

I cannot seem to receive or send a fax. I'm wondering if I have it hooked up right. Acording to the book I do however the fax part does not work. I have 2 distinctive ring tones, one for my phone & one for my fax but I still cannot seem to get it working.

Check your phone lines. You should have one that runs directly from the wall jack to the "L" port on the machine (there should be no other devices connected between the wall and the machine). If you have other devices connected (telephone, answering machine, computer modem, etc) they should be connected to the port on the machine that has an icon next to it that looks like a telephone.

Cant send or recieve fax


Might be silly question but is it setup to auto transmit and receive? And have you tried to operate it manually? + take out the inline filter fax machines operate on volume'db' to soft and it can't hear, to loud and it can distort sound.

TELEPHONE HOOK-UP REQUIREMENTS


Just a plain telephone cord, plug it in. Go into setup and setup your fax name and number that will appear on the fax your sending. Set the number of rings before answering. Place a test fax call to some fax machine.
  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, we will generate a return fax to you within five minutes confirming that we 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. Consult the user manual that came with the product for proper setup and configuration.

Cannot receive faxes on Samsung SCX-4521F


I'm not sure if I can help you or not, but I do have a suggestion or 2, that may help isolate the problem.
The solution I gave you initially, is the usual culprit for the situation you are experiencing. If the machine can "send", then "receiving" is not normally a problem, as long as the reception settings are correct. You said that "sending works fine"?
Since you have multiple faxes, you might try swapping the locations, or at least try the Samsung in a known working environment, to see if it behaves the same. If it works on another line, then try the other fax on the "Samsung" line.
That's all I have to suggest right now, but I'd be anxious to hear if there is any change.

Can send but can't receive faxes.


if your fax is on a dedicated fax line, make sure your display says "fax only" or "auto". if not on a dedicated line, you'll have to give more info on what kind of hook up you have. in other words, is there an answering machine hooked inline, etc.

good luck,

Toshiba e-Studio 350 FAX Communication error


Are you still receiving faxes although you are unable to send? Or is it no send & no receive? When you hook a phone up are you able to connect with a # dialed from that phone. It's possible that the problem is the copiers NCU board- but it's rare that they fail & even more rare that it loses just the send portion. You'll want to be absolutly sure that it's not the phone line. If you are positive that the problem is not the phone line - try turning the machine off & unplugging the power cord for 30 minutes. Occasionally the NCU card will lock up & not function properly. Unplugging the machine for 30 minutes has worked for me in the past.
