The flat cord is the USB for your computer, the phone cord plugs into your telephone.

When I try to send a fax on my lexmark x4650 it has error no dial tone?


If you are getting "no dial tone" as an error on your fax machine, it means that you have the telephone cord plugged into the wrong port on it.

Turn the printer around so that you can see the back of it. If you look closely, there should be three ports to choose from in which you connect a telephone cord. Sometimes they put a little white plastic piece in the ports to keep them clean during shipping ect. If this is the case, go ahead and remove them now.


If you look closely at each port , you might notice that they have text or pictures right above or below them to tell you which one to use. let me explain; if you have one telephone line and wish to use it for both fax and voice calls - you will need more than one port. That's why they mark them.

One of the ports should say "line" or have a picture with a funny little symbol on it. This is the port that you would use if you want to fax someone using your printer. You plug your phone cord into this port on your printer.

One of the ports should say "phone" or have a picture of a telephone by it. This port is used when you want to share a single phone line with both your fax machine and telephone used for making voice calls. To split your line between both fax and phone, you plug your phone cord from the wall into the port marked "line" and take a second phone cord and plug it into the port on your printer marked "phone" and the other end of that line goes into your telephone (voice line).

The last port should say "line 2" or similar and usually has no picture next to it. This is an additonal port to share with a second phone line.

To correct your problem of "no dial tone", plug your phone cord into the socket on the wall and put the other end into the port on the printer that says "line". Now lets test the connection.

Put a piece of paper into your printer, press the fax button and dial any phone number using 1 and then the area code followed by the phone number and press 'start" or "ok" to begin the fax. If you have chosen the right port to connect your telephone cord, you will hear a dial tone first, and then dialing of the numbers you chose. If you cannot hear a dial tone before your numbers begin, then you have not chosen the right port. If this is the case, remove the phone cord from the port you have chosen and try another until you do hear the dial tone.

NOTE:

Do not try to go from your phone jack into your telephone and then use a second port on your telephone to connect a second phone cord that is plugged into your printer/fax. A second phone port on your telephone is most likely for a second phone line to use for voice calls. The majority of phones for residential use do not have a built in splitter that works like a fax/printer does. If you try to use a second port on your phone to split to your fax machine, it usually will not work. Follow the instructions as listed above to re-route your line and correct the problem.

MAGIC JACK USERS:

While magic jack is great for making free long distance calls, it is not suggested for use with a fax machine. if your trying to use your magic jack phone line to fax it usually does not work.

HP Officejet 4500 three in one has error 346 and cant fax out. It dials the number correctly but as the fax begins to connect, the number changes to a plus sigh in front of it and puts a dot in between...


Error 346 means the connection was interrupted. Try a different phone cord or jack. If you have a voicemail service that 'pulses' the dial tone when you pick up (to let you know you have messages), it can cause that error too; try clearing the messages.

Adding the +1 is normal when dialing with the area code (using a 10-digit number). If you weren't using the area code, try it.

Otherwise, as a last resort, you can try resetting the fax back to factory default:
-turn off and unplug.
-Hold the # and 3 keys down while plugging in the power cord. If that doesn't work, try # and 4.

Good luck!

Error code 48


Code 48 is internet disconnect.
On the machine if the machine is set up for internet connection, turn it off. Sometimes email is turned on and the other settings are not setup correctly.
Make sure all settings are done correctly
If one is faxing make sure the phone line is connected correctly and their is a good sounding dial tone.
One area to keep in mind is a phone dial tone turning off and on.This can be a phone company issue or poor line connectors in the building, even a corroded plug on the phone receptical.
Check these areas, even replace the phone line cord with a new one.
On the machine a fax machine not sending or recieivng, suspect a board causing the problem.

Continuous open phone line


see what kind of telephone cord do you use.
For Ricoh fax to work properly the telephone cord should have only two wires.
if yours cord has more than two wires don't worry simply on one end of the cord cut the two other wires i prefer to cut the wires on the end where the fax is connected.
Remember cut the two wires from the outside of the cord and left to be connected just the two wires from the inside. As you will see the cord is flat and there has four wires one to another so as i had sad cu the two wires from the left and right side and there will be connected only the middle two wires

Telephone line connection


Two options:

1) Pick up a phone line splitter (Radio Shack or just about any other retailer has them) that has a plug on one side and two jacks on the other. Plug this into the phone jack where the line to your computer is connected. Plug the cord to the computer back into one jack on the splitter and plug the line to the fax machine into the other jack. (If it will physically fit into the space on the back of the computer, you can just plug the splitter into the modem connector, plug the line cord into one jack and the fax cord into the other.)

2) (Useful if the phone jack is behind furniture or just hard to get at.) Get a phone line splitter with all jacks (two on one side, on on the other). Unplug the line cord from the computer and plug it into the single jack on one side of the splitter. Then run a new line cord from one of the two jacks on the other side back to your computer. Plug the cord to the fax machine into the other jack.

IntelliFax 4100 suddenly slow to print


If the dial tone sounds NOISY or SCRATCHY there probably is a phone line problem. Try changing the phone cord first. Are you using DSL phone service?

You have a very reliable fax machine.

Fax 575


The black curly cord goes from the phone receiver (handset) to the first jack on the left side of the fax (the one closest to the handset that's marked with a phone symbol). The flat grey cord is the phone cord. It connects the wall jack to the fax machine's third jack (the one closest to the back of the machine that's marked with the word "LINE").

Our new HP Oficejet Pro L7780 can send faxes but can't receive


Hi,

First things first, i really want to know how things being setup in your end. Let say for example, from the walljack what is the device connected to it. Or if your using one line for both incoming calls and faxes. Or if your using a DSL also for that same phone number for faxing/incoming calls.

Those are just severa factors that affect your problems. Meanwhile, i cant give you a solution on your issue since i still dont have a clear picture on are the devices connected with each other. ALso, its really advisable that you need to use the telephone cord that came out with the box.

Thank you so much. I remain.
