Depends on what sort of fax machine or if you dont have one your computer modem and software, but yes it can be done and is quite common nowdays with most modern MFDs.

Cant receive faxes. constant busy signal when dialing in.


Hi Janet
Try using a standard phone to call your Fax Line
Connect a phone to this Line to test for voice
Disconnect Fax Machine from Phone Line
Reset Fax machine
The Fax machine is supposed to respond to the right tones being sent down the voice line
If it is not responding & all else works then check your Fax settings for "Receiving"

For regular faxing a modem connected to a standard phone line is required, normally.

We went to a roll over system on our phone lines and now we cannot receive faxes. We can send them though.


Your roll over system is sending calls to the first line in the sequence and it does not differentiate between voice and fax. You will have to change the roll over so it does not send calls to your fax line. Your internal phone system may still use the fax line for outgoing faxes and voice calls but incoming fax calls have to be sent to the line the fax is on.

I have Linksys modem no AM300.I try and send a fax and it will not go through Error report "NO Answer" BUT I know fax machine on other end is ok.Internet is ok.Can you help John


Even though you have internet, have you connected a phone line? Most fax machines/software rely on the phone line. I don't know how you are sending a fax. If you are sending a fax directly from an all-in-one, you'll need to connect the phone line to the back of that device. If you're sending a fax using a program on the computer, you'll need to connect the phone to the back of the computer.

You can temporarily disconnect your land-line phone and connect it to the all-in-one or computer. Just remember to reconnect it when you are done so you can receive phone calls.

I hope this helps!

I can't send faxes on my Canon Pixma MP530 on digital phone line


They're telling you your hardward doesn't play nice with their hardware. A few suggestions:

Update your printer, and see if any improvement is found:

If that doesn't work, see if your computer has a fax modem that itself can be updated and can support the hardware. Your multifunction printer has a scanner; you can scan in the things you want to fax, then fax from the computer if the computer can fax. This is starting to look like a Dr. Seuss book.

You can also try to learn more about what the problems are and look elsewhere. Your "digital" phone is actually voice over Internet, something VOIP. If you Google for VOIP FAX you'll find some information, like this:

Cannot send faxes when using cable company's digital voice modem


Fax machines must have a standard analog phone line. They won't work on a digital line and can actually be damaged if hooked up to one.

Sending faxes


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.
