You can hook a fax to any standard phone line. That is what they are designed for. The only issue is if you share the fax with your telephone, you will need to set the machine up to receive the fax before you answer the phone.

Tip

A fax machine is just a big ol' telephone answering machine


There is no mystery, seriously. You send a fax exactly the same way as you make a phone call; instead of talking to a person, your fax machine talks to another fax machine. Clicks, squeals, buzz sounds.

If it says it's busy, well, it's busy
If it doesn't answer, it's not set to AUTO RECEIVE
If it says OFF HOOK another device is using YOUR phone line.
If you don't hear a dial tone when you press the HOOK or MONITOR key, the phone line is dead. Check the line with a regular phone.

If a dial tone sounds weird, it is a DIGITAL phone line. You need an ANALOG or regular phone line.

ALL FAX MACHINES ARE ANALOG DEVICES AND WILL NOT WORK RELIABLY ON A DIGITAL SYSTEM OR A COMPUTER....Magic Jack, Vonage, etc. are DIGITAL PHONE SYSTEMS. Don't believe what the Vendor tells you. They are for designed for VOICE GRADE PHONE CALLS ONLY.

The settings in your fax machine were designed by people who are a lot smarter and make more money than us. DON"T MESS WITH THE PARAMETERS.

It's all that SIMPLE !!

Can't receive faxes but can send them okay


The easiest thing to check is the recieve mode setting. most of the time when this happens the machine is set on manual recieve. Set it to automatic recieve and you should be fine.

I have an HP Officejet v series printer, fax, amd copier. It will send a fax, but it is not received. Someone can send me a faz, it sends, but I don't receive it.


Verify that the sender has the correct fax number.

Call your fax machine from a regular phone and listen for fax tones.

Fax machines are ANALOG devices. Make sure your fax machine is not connected to DSL or any other digital phone line.
