Sending a fax

Each time I attempt to send a FAX it fails the first time, no matter who I'm sending it to. Most of the time it will go on the 2nd or 3rd time, but yesterday I made 6 attempts to send and they all failed. I called the receiver and they had been receiving properly all day no problems on their end.

I do use Vonage but the signal is always clean on the part I can hear when the call is initiating.

    I was told when I Switched to Vonage I didn't need the broad band filters any longer, so I removed them. Could my credit card modum be adding interferance? I will also try re-routing/replaceing the cable.

    I added a filter, and re-routed cable and the first fax I sent went the first time, 3 pages without a hitch.

It is a problem with phone cable or with phone settings

    Try replacing the phone cable, and inspecting if there is any device (power adapters, power cable etc.) very near to the phone cable, this devices can cause disturbance that cause fax to fail most of the time.
    If you are using a broadband filter try also replacing the filter.

    I do not think the modem can generate enough field to create interference, in any case don' keep it on top of the cable, try moving phone cables and see if it improves. Also test the system with a broadband filter, even if Vonage does not need one (it is voip), broadband may still be using regular landline signal.

My fax machine MX532 won't let me send a fax though the machine


This is probably an issue for the receiving fax. Try this:

1. Find a piece of paper and write fairly large:
Call me if you get this
Your name
Your phone number

2. Send this to a different fax machine at a different company and location. If it works, then attempt to send it to the same fax you initially attempted.
- If it works then your document may be too large and you will have to send it over a couple pages (or less at a time).
- If it doesn't work then there is a compatibility issue with either your or the receiving end fax machine. You will have to find an alternative fax number to a different model fax machine. Don't expect the company on the other end to just change out their fax machine but they may have another model at a different phone number.

Another alternative - you can attempt to scan your documents and send them by email but check with your and the receiving destination security departments.

Best wishes,

I have some problem with Windows Explorer. I message is display in every 10 second and there is three Option. 1st is Debug, 2nd is Send Error Report 3rd is Don't Send. When I chose the 3rd Opt. computer...

Windows has recorded a "software-error" in your copy of Windows.

If you clicked "send", Windows will send a problem-description to Microsoft,
so that software-engineers can determine the problem, and recommend some way to fix the problem. Sometimes, the analysis of the problem is done by computers at Microsoft,
and you get some "help" in a few seconds.

Try turning your computer off, and restarting it, to see if the problem persists.

Can't send or receive faxes

it's most likely the compression on the phone line or you need to set up your fax machine for proper receive mode.
Contact your phone service provider to see if they support faxes.
(Faxes cannot handle nearly as much compression as standard voice)
