I can not receive a fax

Hi there, Fax machines are still in common use today despite the widespread adoption of computers along with their multiple communication tools, including e-mail and social networks. Fax problems can include trouble receiving faxes, dialing issues, faxes not printing and poor print quality. Performing periodic maintenance can help with fax problems. Check any visual indicators for trouble. Many fax machines have a display panel and use it for reporting error messages. Often the messages are in plain text and can be understood without referring to the instruction book. Refer to your fax machine'smag-glass_10x10.gif instruction manual for any numeric error codes.
  • Step 2.Replace the cables. In particular, replace the telephone line cable that runs from the wall to the fax machine. The plugs can become lame, and the wire itself can break inside, providing no visual indication it's broken.

    Can't send or receive faxes

    it's most likely the compression on the phone line or you need to set up your fax machine for proper receive mode.
    Contact your phone service provider to see if they support faxes.
    (Faxes cannot handle nearly as much compression as standard voice)

    Fax problem

    Set the reception mode to A.M.

    Set your answering machine to auto answer.
    ♦ Your answering machine must be set to answer on a maximum of two rings.
    If not, you may not be able to receive faxes sent by automatic dialling.
    ♦ If your answering machine has a toll saver function, make sure that it will
    answer by the fourth ring.

    The fact that the phone was ringing and the fax answered the call doesn't necessarily mean, that it was a fax transmission; someone might have called your number and tried to talk, but hung up hearing the fax beep.
    You have to ask someone with a working fax machine to try and send you something, then you will be sure whether your fax works fine or not.
    If this check will prove that it's indeed your machine that has some issue, then look for any error lights or messages on the display. If there was something wrong with paper, printing head, drive or whatever, you would certainly get some error message.

    The instruction manuals of fax machines are typically large and complex books. Often there are many options to consider. Mostly the machines can be used successfully without much reference to the manual but when there is a problem the question machine or operator fault can only be determined by thoroughly reading it.

    To a large extent whether a fax call is picked up or not depends on the settings (including answering machine), the quality of the phone line and connection and the machine sending the fax as well as the receiving machine.

    My fax machine will mostly automatically receive a fax but it seems to miss the important ones and I have to answer the ringing phone, hear the fax tone and press the manual fax button.

    I strongly suspect the problem mostly lies with the sending machines - if they are fax machines the results were much better than from a computer being used as a fax machine and while a fax machine will send a receipt, a computer doesn't seem capable of doing so.

    There may be some static on the phone line, try a line filter. If possible, you could plug the fax into another working telephone line, and have someone send a fax to that number (whatever number is attached to the new phone jack) to isolate whether or not it is the machine, or the wall jack.

    Sharp Fax machine - UX-B700

    Try this:

    Set the fax machine to AUTO reception. Next, you would want to set the proper settings in your Option Set List. To print a list press the FUNCTION key, the number 2 key, then press the # key until it reads OPTION SET LIST in the LCD screen and press the START key. This will print your list. The following settings should be seen: Number of Rings 1 to 4 rings (setting #2) Dial Mode- TONE (setting #8) TAD Connected- OFF (setting #9) * Quiet Detect Time- 04 seconds (setting #10) * Distinctive Ringing- OFF (setting #12) **

    Let us know if this doesn''t fix it... we can go from there!
