Fax machines will not work on digital phone lines. You need to have a seperate phone line to run one. If your office is using DSL for internet, usually they can run one off of that line with a filter installed.

Please go through the following checklist:
  • Make sure to plug the telephone fax line from the phone jack in the wall to the Line port on the back of your printer. For more info, please refer to the Lexmark X125 User's Guide.
  • If you have an answering machine connected to the same fax line, be sure to configure it so that it answers first before the fax machine (e.g. if your answering machine picks up on the 3rd ring, set your fax to pick up on the 6th ring or more)
  • If the line has a voicemail feature, disable it or request for a distinctive ring from your phone company.

Hello,
Do you have ADSL internet in your new place? If so you will need an ADSL filter plugged into the phone outlet and plugged into your fax machine. so it would look like phone wall jack--->filter-->fax machine.
ADSL internet creates it own jabber or digital noise in the line and the filter will stop your a analog device from hearing the noise. If you don't have a filter for your phone as well, you should get one. Without filters your ADSL internet will be slower as well. Your ADSL modem should have came with at least 4 filters, if not they can be purchased at your local Bestbuy, staples or computer place. NOTE: Filters only work if you have ADSL or DSL internet.
If you do not have ADSL or DSL internet and still have noise you may have to call your phone service provider to get them to diagnose your line issues. They can fix some noise issues from their end.

Setting Kyocera KM-2025 Fax


the issue needs to be resolved on the other end..It's not an issue with your machine...They need to do 1 of 3 things...either setup distinctive ring with their phone company...or purchase a fax line.. or get something called "the stick"

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:

I need to fax something on a Canon MX310 all-in-one printer. I'm not connected to an actual phone line, I'm on a router that I share with my roommates...Can I still fax something?


not like that. A router connects a network to the internet. It works on digital signals whilst a fax works off analog signals so the two aren't compatible. You may want to try a program called bitware which specialises in faxing via the internet. But if your printer has a fax just connect it to a phone line and then you can fax stuff.
