The line coming from the wall is plugged directly into the "L" socket (without anything in between)? Is anything plugged into the other (extension phone) socket? Usually, this message only appears if a "live" device is plugged into the extension phone socket. For instance, if you have an answering machine plugged into both a wall socket and the extension phone socket on the JX200.

I just looked at the "Easy Setup Instructions" posted on Canon's web site, and in Step 3, the words are correct, but the diagram in the square box is backward. Let me know if you are still having problems.

My brother intellifax 4100e is not recieving faxes we can send and I called the fax it works and we can copy but cant recieve.


Does the machine actually answer the incoming call? If so does it give an error code? Are you using the genuine brother line lead? Finally make sure the line lead is plugged into the "line" socket and not the "tel" socket.

My fax machine doesnt have a dial tone, how can i fix it. its plug in the socket and in the back of the modeum.


Make sure your tel line is OK by connecting the line to a telephone first. Connect the tel line to the socket labelled LINE. If there's still no dial tone, change the line card.

Ux-p100 fax dont have a dial tone


Check your phone line by plugging a spare hanset into the wall socket (Incoming line) and listening for a dial tone on this. No dial tone - faulty line connection.
Also check you have plugged in to the correct socket on the back of your fax.

the first thing you should check is the socket you have put the fax line into at the back there is usually two sockets one says line and one tel..make sure you have it in teh line socket as this is for the fax line in... teh tel socket is usually to connect a phone handset to.. if this works let me know.. good luck A

Make sure you are plugging the line from the wall into the "L" (line) port on the machine. The port with the telephone icon is for an extension phone or an answering machine.

Most likely the modem is bad in the fax machine.
But a make and model number would help.
Some have the fax boards seperate, some are incorporated in the processor board.
Also it could just need the software reloaded or updated.
If you have a digital line, the majority of fax machines today STILL require an analogue line.
But a make and model number would be very helpful.
Thank you.

Not receiving faxesBrothers fax-190


The phone line to begin with, can you get a dial tone when you press speaker button? Is it clear?  if no dial tone  then,  Is the phone line from the wall plug into the correct socket of the fax machine ? (it goes into the one marked line, not the ext one).....

next trick would be to plug in a normal phone to wall socket to insure we have dial tone and eliminate it being a telstra fault,

 

 Could also be wise to check filter is installed on that line if we have recently installed ADSL Broadband.
