Have u connected the handset to the side below the hand cradle. & the line coming frm the wall should be connected to the line in on the printer & not the Extn. If its connected to the line in on the back of the printer,u should get a dial tone. U can also place a paper in the scanner & then press the option under fax till u get on hook dial.. that should also give u a dial tone.

I am not able to send fax from this printer.


Did you connect an external telephone to your machine? If not, please check the lower left side when the back faces you and there are two telephone jacks. the one is to connect to the telephone line and another to an external telephone unit. after connecting the two lines, you should be able to get a dial tone when you lift the telephone's handset. I dont personally use the numbers in the machine but I use the telephone I connected to the machine when sending fax. Just start dialing using the phone and send the fax/ send button when fax tone is heard. hope this works.

Fax problem


I want to make sure I understand this completely. You get no dial tone from the fax machine when hooked up to VOIP. In the past, was there an audible dial tone from the fax, or did it just dial silently and give you an error if there was no tone? When you said you got a dial tone by connecting a phone to the ext phone port of "the machine" did you mean the fax machine? If you get a dial tone by running a phone through the fax machine, then the line is good. I have used a fax machine over Sunrocket before they went defunct, which used the same technology base as Vonage - so it should work. If you used to get an audible dial tone when using the fax, and no longer do, and you are geting a dial tone on a regular phone that is connected to the ext. port of the fax machine, then the problem has to be in the fax machine itself, not the VOIP. If you can verify that, we can go from there.

I cant receive fax


Is there a dial tone if you pick up the reciever ? Can you send faxes or use the machine to make a phone call ? If you can make calls or send faxes the machine probably needs to be set to the auto recieve mode so that it automatically answers when a fax is being recieved. If no dial tone you may have a loose connection to your phone jack.

Won't send or receive fax. no dial tone when i dial the number.


If you haven't already, confirm that it's not the phone line. You can check it by plugging in a regular phone in to the wall, you should get a dial tone. If you do not you may want to call your phone company. If that is not the case, then check the connection on the back of the fax machine. Make sure its connected to the correct plug. Sometimes there can be two outlets and one is for the optional handset. Make sure the phone line is plugged into the one marked either "line" or "L" and not plugged marked with a picture of a handset.

Not accessing the tone for fax only keep on ringing


Pick up a telephone handset (or use your cell-phone),
and dial the EXACT same numbers.
Does it ring forever, or does the remote FAX "answer" the call, and then start sending "tones" to your telephone?

Status 50 on a fax estudio 45


the number is busy. Try pressing the monitor button and listening for a dial tone. No dial tone means your phone line is not working. If you have dial tone, dial the number you wish to fax and listen to see if it picks up. If you get a busy signal, or hear someone answer, that is why it's not working. If you hear the fax tones, press start and send your document. This is a way to fax that allows you to hear the whole process.

Fax problem. Trying to send international fax to France. I can hear the fax number being dialed ok, but no connection after 12 rings. Calling fax number from phone hooked up through mp530 connects ok! ...


Hi ...

It might be possible that the line is loose or the long distance calling code is incorrect. Follow the below instructions which might resolve the problem.

Sending Using a Long Distance Calling Code The telephone company or PBX system may use long distance calling codes on a phone line as a means to manage long distance calls. This service may extend to a fax phone line and for local phone calls as well. To use a calling code for faxing, enter a pause (or pauses, as necessary) in the dialing sequence to allow time for the phone system to distinguish between the phone number and the calling code. For example, if the calling code has to be entered after the phone number, press <Redial/Pause> after the long distance number and then enter the calling code.
Here is an example of a couple of variations that may be used by the phone company / PBX system. (For details on time sequence between the long distance number and when you must enter the calling code, please contact your phone company or telecommunications specialist.)
Long distance number: 212.555.1212
Calling code: 123456
Scenario One: 12125551212p123456 Scenario Two: 123456p12125551212

Note: The above scenarios include a pause (p) in between the dialing sequence. This pause may be necessary to allow the phone system to detect each set of dialing sequences. The pause length can be adjusted from one to nine seconds, the default is two seconds.

Tips to help you send a fax using a calling code.
  1. To send a fax using a calling code, it may be necessary to add a pause(s) before the next string of dialing digits. The above example shows how a calling code is used to dial a long distance fax number. To provide time before the calling code number is dialed and avoid misdialing, a pause should be added.

    Example: 12125551212p123456

    The number of pauses will depend on the phone / PBX system.

    It is suggested to confirm if the time before the next set of digits is dialed will always be constant. This way you can always use the same number of pauses for that dialing sequence. If needed, you can also change the pause [Pause time] length from its default 2 seconds.

  2. Connect a telephone to the fax machine.
    1. Connect a line cord from the telephone wall jack to the [L] jack (or item <1>) on the fax machine.

    2. Connect a line cord from the extension telephone port on the fax machine (top jack (or item <2>)) to an external telephone.

  3. To send a fax using a calling code, it is recommended to dial using the attached telephone.
    1. Press the <FAX> button on the operator panel.
    2. Insert the documents face-up on the ADF.

    3. Pick up the handset of the attached telephone and confirm you hear a dial tone.
    4. Dial the fax destination number on the attached telephone.
    5. When you are prompted to enter your calling code, dial it on the attached phone.
    6. When you hear the remote fax machine's high-pitched receive tones, press <Color> to send a color fax or <Black> to send a black and white fax. The audio signal heard from the handset will be cut off.
    7. Hang up the handset.
    8. When the transaction is complete, the fax machine will return to standby mode.

I am trying to use the fax facility on my epson600fw.my isp is aol .Problem no dial tone. What connections are necessary............via printer,modem & computer ?


Typically, a fax machine is connected directly to a telephone wall jack with a known working connection. Try plugging the fax machine directly into a wall jack first and pick up the handset on the fax machine if it has one. You should get a dial tone. Then try to fax something to someone you know.

The machine can also usually be routed through the modem in a computer by connecting the "line" cord on the modem to the wall jack and plugging the fax machine into the the "phone" jack on the modem. You may need to install the software that came with the fax machine to get this to work.

If you have no dial tone, check the wall jack with a known to be working single line phone. If there is a dial tone, it's something to do with fax machine, the computer modem or the connections.

Some fax machines can take advantage of internet faxing through a cable modem or DSL connection. Check your manual for the options available.

Are one touch dialing board not working


When sending, try using a analog phone, and dial the number you are calling. Make sure it is the correct number. You might hear someone pick up the phone, or you will get a recording messege. This will tell you if the phone is the correct number you are trying to dial. When you are finished, plug in the phone line back into the correct jack on the fax machine.
Once you hear the dial tone, your phone is working.
If you can send a fax, and the machine does not send it, then the machines fax board might not be working.
There are other questions I like to ask about the phone line. Are you using a adaptor to convert the analog signal to digital? If this is the case then the adaptor may be causing some problems with your faxes.
Good luck.

MP730 fax issue-can't receive fax, but can send out


I think I know why. You need to set the proper priority of your all-in-one Canon device.
If it is TEL priority, it means you need to have a phone connected to the fax. If the phone rings, you need to pick up the handset and check if it's a fax tone or a call. If it is fax tone, you wait for 5 secs til fax tone stops, and then hang up. After that you will receive the fax. Failure to pick up the handset will not allow you to receive the fax. This might be the most probable setting you have, hence you can't receive the fax.
If it is FAX priority, the same thing happens as TEL priority. Only difference is if you don't pick up, and it is a fax, it will still receive.
You can also do FAX only. No need to connect a phone. Device will receive automatically.
