We have a Xerox Workcenter Fax Machine. One of our salesreps regularly tries to fax us. Our machine answers and sends out the fax tone for several seconds. His machine never starts transmitting and after 30 seconds or so disconnects. We have not had complaints from anyone else and he can fax other people. Now he faxes someone else and then they fax us. It just seems our two machines do not like each other. We have standard phone lines and do not go through any type of switchboard or PBX.

For a phone line dedicated only to the fax machine, the process is as follows:
Press Menu/Set, 0, 1.
You will see the Fax Receive window
Use UP and DOWN arrows to change the setting to FAX ONLY
Your fax machine will now answer every incoming call. If the fax machine is sharing the phone line with a telephone, repeat the above steps and change from FAX ONLY to FAX/TEL This option will allow you to share the line with a phone only, not an answering machine. Once in FAX/TEL mode, the fax machine will still grab every incoming FAX call, and give a special ring (slightly different than a regular telephone ring) when it's a regular incoming phone call signaling you to answer the phone. I hope this helps with your problem. Best of luck! Greg
If this is on a network your network tech needs to set up your machine through one of the routers.
If the machine was pluged into the phone socet direct, there would be no problem. The phone will ring constantly, until you plug the phone to the machine.
If the machine does not answer the phone, then the problem maybe in the machines confguration for auto answer, or a modem board not working.
But on a network, the computer is trying to find the signal, but can't because it cannot find the machines signal.
This problem is in the network side. Check with your network specialist.
