    My fax number is my home telephone number, so I don't understand what the problem is, I even make sure that there are no messages waiting on my call answer, so it should work, but it still gives me a busy signal, as soon as the machine starts to dial out the fax #

I am having problems sending and receiving faxes on the same model. When I am sending a fax, it sounds like a normal fax dial and then nothing happens, same thing on the other end when someone is trying to fax me, sounds as if it went through and then nothing. I am going to try your suggestion of trying to call the line from another phone to see if the prob is on the recg or end- thanks Mumatictac

Hmmm..did you call your fax? give me the number of your fax, and I'll call it first, then fax something to see if it's on the receiving end(which could be the case)

    well..i can see you're frustrated, but from the long experiences we've had, sometimes its a functional issue. But, since you're frustration caused you to rate this a inappropriate, then I'm not inclined to continue this intervention.

If you have bell answer that will be the reason not working. Get rid of bell answer and save over a hundred a year and get yourself an answer machine. If you dont have bell answer then check your manual for correct set up.

Cant't send out any faxes.

Are you using the little cord that came with the printer to hook up your fax. It is a special cord. You cannot just plug a phone line into the fax.

Communication error

I can give you a general answer. If the other fax machine is an older model, it probably has a slower baud rate. You probably have an option to slow your machine down. It goes thru a process to setup a tx speed, if it is not satisfied with the clarity of the line, it will timeout, hence your error. I would slow it down in increments until you get a reliable connection. If it only happens to one place, there is a possibility of a compatibility problem, which also can be solved, but would require service modes to do.

Cant send fax

Recieving faxes
  • Plug a regular, non-digital, phone into the fax's phone line and see if you get a dial tone
    • If you do not have a dial tone, seek support from your telephone service provider
  • Dial the fax number from a phone    
    • Normal circumstance is that you will have the fax machine pick up and make high-pitched noises
    • If the fax does not pick up, put a regular phone on the fax line and see if the regular phone rings when dialed
      • If the phone rings, answer it and see if there is line noise
        • If the line is clear, call the service number listed on your fax
        • If the line is staticy or unclear, call your telephone service provider
      • If the phone does not ring, call your telephone service provider
Sending faxes
  • Attempt to dial the fax number you are trying to send to from another phone.
    • If you hear electronic noises on the line, the other end has a fax machine on the other end
      • Check to see if you can recieve faxes.
    • If the remote fax does not answer, the problem is on the remote side, contact the recipient
