If you only use this line for a fax the least stressful option is a fax to email service and re-direct the incomming calls.

If you use this line for fax and phone do as I suggest above except re-directing the calls but dont forget to tell those who fax you of your new number

We changed our telephone package last week, eliminating the dedicated fax line to one multi-ring line. The faxes aren't coming through now. Any suggestions?


You will have to set the Multi-ring pattern in the Printer Fax Setup to distinguish between the phone ring and fax ring

Press Setup button
Scroll to Advanced fax setup ( Press OK )
Choose Distinctive Ring Pattern ( DRP )
Set the multi-ring you have been assigned for Fax
Press OK -
Try dialing the no., the Fax should ring
Try sending Fax or Recieving, it should work.

Also, Turn off the ECM
under SETUP - FAX Settings - ECM ( Error correction mode ) - Turn it OFF

Receive fax on the fax system as well as your PC


If you change the number of rings on the fax machine to more than on your PC, your PC should receive the fax first and accomplish your goal.
