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 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.

Recieve mode


Hi slickkitty
Only one press for each display,
When you press the FAX RECEIVE MODE button, the display should change each time you press. eg: AUTO, FAX ONLY
When you see the FAX ONLY, press the SET button and leave it like that. Don't try to do it when the fax rings. Do it when the fax machine is idle.
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} The following instruction is found in your Fax Manual.
Set the fax machine to FAX ONLY mode by
pressing {RECEIVE MODE} until the
following is displayed.
1 The display will show the number of
rings before the fax machine answers a
call in FAX ONLY mode.
2 Press {+} or {-} to change the ring
setting to 2 and press {SET}.
How to receive calls
Just leave it. When the other party sends a fax,
the fax machine will receive it automatically.


Hope this will help, if it helped you, please give a rating.
Good luck

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.

Fax will not recieve but will send fax


what does the display reed. To receive fax automatically the display needs to reed
( fax mode or auto ) . If in the manual mode you need to pick up the receiver listen for the tones then press start.

make sure the phone cord from the wall jack is from the wall to the line connection MOT THE EXT. CONNECTION on the fax ( nothing in between the wall & fax )

hope this works

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.

Junk Faxes


Rita Lee, I can't find my manual for this model but what I would suggest is turning off the "auto receive'" function. This is what I found online.
Depending on what (FX,AU,TM.TL) is displayed on the right hand side. Use the Ans.Mode/Contrast button to change that to TL is displayed.

The fax will not accept incoming faxes but you might also have a problem with the actual line being busy.

If you don't have the book I can send you the link.

I hope I have been of help.

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.
