Busy signal when trying to send fax

Every time I try to send a fax on my HP PSC 950, as the fax number is being dialed, it sends out a busy signal, even though the number is not busy. Can anyone help me with any adivise on how to fix this problem? HP wouldn't help me because I bought the machine over a year ago...so you know what that means...NO FREE HELP!!

    No, I only have dial up, and this happens with every fax that I try to send, even when I have checked to make sure that the fax line is not busy, so as you can see, I'm still stuck, do you have any other suggestions??

    can you call your fax machine from a regular number? Seems that this busy signal may be from call waiting interruptions

I called Canon about this. They had me tweak the transmission start speed (Menu>FAX setting>TX settings>TX start speed). It was too fast. Set it to 4800. Then it was too slow. Clicked it up to 7200 and now it works!! TX Start Speed should not be too fast or too slow.

I have a Epson all in one printer, scanner, fax etc. and when I try to send a fax I get busy report.


Try to send a test fax to HP's fax-back line:
1-888-HP FAX ME

You can send a blank page and if they receive it they'll send you a fax back confirming it.
If you can send to HP then whoever you tried to fax to earlier is having an issue or the number you have is wrong.

If you cannot send to HP then there's an issue with your line/machine.
You would then start troubleshooting by hooking up a phone to that jack you have your Epson plugged into and seeing if you get a dial tone.

My Brother MFC7340 Fax Machine will not send faxes it has a busy signal always and a busy signal when someone tries to fax me.


Hi,
You need to reset the memory, since previously you have dialed some number, which is not able to connect. So restart the printer. Unplug the printer for 10 minutes and plug back the power to the printer.

Hope this helps.

WE CANNOT RECEIVE OR SEND FAXES, BUSY/NO SIGNAL


Plug a phone into the jack and check to make sure you have a dial tone. If not telephone company needs to be called. If dial tone it may be the other number you are trying to fax to. try calling the number from phone and see if it picks up.

If you get this on every number, check your setup and make sure that you haven't set it to add some extra number. Also try to send a fax to another fax number.

Status 50 on a fax estudio 45


the number is busy. Try pressing the monitor button and listening for a dial tone. No dial tone means your phone line is not working. If you have dial tone, dial the number you wish to fax and listen to see if it picks up. If you get a busy signal, or hear someone answer, that is why it's not working. If you hear the fax tones, press start and send your document. This is a way to fax that allows you to hear the whole process.

Difficulty sending a fax


Hello. Please make sure your telephone line is plugged into the correct outlet.

Most fax machines typically allow you to plug the line (the cord that goes from the fax machine to the wall jack) and and a telephone (the telephone connects to the fax machine).

In order to fax correctly, you must plug the line into the jack with a block (looks like a 'T') marked on it. Do not plug the line into the jack marked with a phone hand set marked on it.

This shoulds in detail how to connect the line properly. For this printer the line cord must be plugged into the jack labelled "L"

I am having trouble with faxing information to another fax.


I have had this problem before. Either your fax is not hooked up properly or whoever you are trying to send the fax to does not have their fax hooked up properly. If it's not one of these problems makes you have the right fax number and that you are putting the fax number in correct. Some fax require the whole number to be entered 1 including the area code.

Fax


If you have dial-up for your internet access you cannot be online when a fax is coming through. The line has to be free to receive the fax.
