Question about Sharp FO 2950M Plain Paper Laser Fax

Won't accept faxes

Our fax machine will send a fax, but won't accept them. The display says "Standby Mode" and I'm not sure if that is the problem. It was working fine until we moved it to a different location. I checked the phone line and that's okay and it is plugged into the proper jack on the fax machine. Any suggestions?

Thank you!

CAN T RECIEVE A FAX FOR SOME NUMBERS BUT CAN SEND THEM ONE WHY


I've seen this many times before, when a customer / account gets a new fax machine, or is using a different fax machine. All the other faxes go through without a hitch, except for these. If fax machines become a couple generations apart / 10 years, they won'
t communicate sufficiently enough to make the fax hand shake and the Fax fails to go through.

Can you still send fax? if sending and receiving are not working you can try to update or uninstall/reinstall the software for this unit..

Can not send fax. The receving fax rings but my machine does not respond and send the fax. I can receive ok.


The document does not feed into the machine.
Be sure the document is not wrinkled, and you are putting it in correctly. Check that the document is the right size and not too thick or too thin. (See document types and sizes on page 43).
You cannot receive faxes automatically. Check if "TEL" appears on the right side of the display. In TEL mode, you
cannot receive a fax automatically. Be sure the handset is seated on the cradle properly.
The machine cannot receive faxes manually. Do not hang up the handset before pressing Start/Enter to receive a
fax.
The machine does not send anything. Check that the document is loaded face down. Send should show up
in the display after it dials. Check if the machine to which you are sending can receive your fax.

Fax machine will not receive faxes. Sending okay. Comes up with busy signal at sending point.


Check menu settings and confirm the machine is set for automatic answer. If its in manual mode, you have to hit the start/go button when the fax rings to accept the transmission.

Not able to receive a fax, but able to send a fax


Welcome FixYa! I'm the expert that has chosen your issue to fix. Now let's get started!

I believe the issue is that your machine is set to Manual Mode. The manual mode is used where you have only one phone line and you only receive occasional faxes. In this mode, the machine won't automatically take faxes, but you can send faxes fine.

If this is the case, and you receive a lot of faxes and you only want to receive faxes only, you will need to change your mode to Fax Only, as follows:

  1. Press Function, then
  2. Press Data Registration, then
  3. Press Set, then
  4. use up/down arrows to find RX Settings on the display, then
  5. Press Set (ECM RX will Display), then
  6. use up/down arrows to find RX Mode, then
  7. Press Set (Fax/Tel AutoSw will display, then
  8. Use up/down arrows to find (Fax Only Mode), then
  9. Press Set (Incoming Ring should be displayed), then
  10. Press stop/reset to return to standby mode.
  11. Confirm that display reads (Fax Only).
The machine will now treat all incoming calls as faxes and ignore all voice calls.

Thats about it! Thanks again for using FixYa.com

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation. If it hasn’t, please do not assign a rating just yet. Please post back as to what steps you took, results, etc, and I will try to assist you further as best I can. I am at your service.

Not sure how to setup the tel/fax mode correctly


The JX200 has four modes of fax receipt - Fax/Tel, Manual, Answering Machine, and Fax Only. The Fax/Tel mode, which you have indicated is your desire, is meant to let the fax machine automatically switch between fax and voice calls. Documents are received automatically, and the machine rings for voice calls.

Set the mode by pressing [Receive Mode/Resolution]. Every time you press [Receive Mode/Resolution], the mode changes cyclically.
If you set Fax/Tel mode, you can control precisely how the fax handles incoming calls by adjusting the following settings:
• Adjust the time the fax takes to check whether a call is from a fax machine or a telephone (<RING START TIME> setting).
• Adjust the length of time the fax rings when the call is a voice call (<TEL RING TIME> setting).
• Set whether the fax switches to receive mode after the ring time set in <TEL RING TIME> has elapsed (<DEFAULT ACTION> setting).
1. Press [Menu].
2. Use arrows to select <DATA REGISTRATION>, then press [Start/Copy]. The LCD displays <USER SETTINGS>.
3. Use arrows to select <RX SETTINGS>, then press [Start/Copy]. The LCD displays <ECM RX>.
4. Use arrows to select <FAX/TEL AUTO SW>, then press [Start/Copy]. The LCD displays <RING START TIME>.
5. Press [Start/Copy]. The LCD displays <8SEC.>
6. Use the numeric buttons, or arrows to enter the time the fax waits before ringing when it receives a call, then press [Start/Copy] twice.
7. Use the numeric buttons, or arrows to enter the time the fax rings while waiting for someone to pick up the Handset, then press [Start/Copy] twice. The LCD displays <RECEIVE>.
8. Use arrows to select <RECEIVE> or <DISCONNECT>, then press [Start/Copy]. This setting tells the fax what to do if the Handset is not picked up within the specified ring time set in step 6.
9. Press [Stop].
Setting ends and the fax returns to standby mode. The machine will now handle calls as indicated in the settings you input.

If this information assists you in resolving the problem, please take a moment to rate the solution at a "FixYa" level. If you do not feel that you can rate at a "FixYa", please post back with more information regarding what has occurred subsequently, and I will gladly help you until we have reached a definitive solution. Thank you for using and rating FixYa!

Can't receive fax but can send


Call your cell phone from the fax machine and check the caller ID to make sure that it is the correct number for your fax machine. Next, call the fax machine from you cell phone, and make sure the fax machine rings. Problems like these are almost always a phone line issue, not the machine.

Don't forget to rate your solutions please.

Sending Faxes


When the last page of your document has been sent successfully, the machine beeps and returns to Standby mode. When something goes wrong while sending your fax, an error message appears on the display. If you receive an error message, press Stop/Clear to clear the message and try to send the document again. You can set your machine to print a confirmation report automatically each time sending a fax is completed. If you get the error message write it down it should always supply an error message if the fax did not go through.
