I think you may have the phone line plugged into the wrong jack on the machine. The line coming from the wall should be plugged into the port that has an "L" next to it. The other port, with an icon of a telephone next to it, is for an extension phone or answering machine.

After dialing and scanning to send fax the machine says wait and then goes to print report and starts printing


Dear
Pl. check the tel.line, test for voice communication,if its ok and without any noise, there may be problem with fax communication line(internal), this may be tested by connecting a parallel telephone set and hearing the beep tones while sending the fax.(put the document in the ADF dial any one no. just to cut dial tone press START, ) If no beep tones in regular interval heard. its due to LIU card fault(mostly). You need to replace or repair the card.

Thanks.

1) did you dial correctly?
2) are you in an office or in your own home?

a) if you are in an office, you may have to dial a 9 or someother number to dial out before you can type in your original fax number.

b) if you are in your home, then its a number of things: Fax machine not connected with phone lines properly is one big supect. Check your phone cables to make sure that the fax machine is properly connected.

Confirm dialing the correct fax number?

Any 0s to get an outside line, any special area codes?

Is the fax sensing the paper you put in to send out? Check the little black levers that poke into the document area. They should move freely when you touch them gently with a finger, and return quickly when you take your finger off. If it can't sense the paper it won't try to send a fax. If, when the paper is inserted, the display changes from whatever it said to anything else, the paper is being sensed.
Let's try dialing manually. Just left of the 1 key is a button labeled "Hook." Pressing that will take the telephone line "off-hook," like picking up the receiver of a phone. You should hear a dial tone -- if not, try adjusting the speaker volume with the buttons just right of the numbers. Once you get a dial tone, dial a number, whether it's another fax, or your own cell phone. As far as the phone company is concerned, your fax is just a phone, calling another phone. If you can make a call, and the phone at the other end rings, we're closing in on the problem. If you can dial another fax machine manually, you can still turn this into a fax call, assuming there's paper ready to fax. After the distant fax answers, touch the Start button, and your fax should take over. If you can't dial manually, try unplugging your fax from the phone line, and replacing it with a regular phone. Can you make calls with it? If not, the fax is no longer a suspect - you have a phone line problem.
Are you at a business where you need to dial 9 to get an outside line? It's easy to forget that detail when you're using a fax, but it has to dial out just like any other phone on the system.
If you can't get a dial tone at all with the fax, but it works with the phone alone, the main board in the fax is probably bad. If you can dial manually, using the Hook switch, but the same number doesn't work when you dial xxx-xxxx-Start, that sounds like a main board problem, too.

The 2820 should have a handset. In order to use manual transmission (when you get to hear all the beeps and whistles) you will need to load the document then pick up the handset. then dial the number, when you hear the recieving fax tone then hit the start button.

The 2820 should also have a hook hold button pressing this will allow you to hear the dial tone and the numbers you dial along with the receiving fax tone. If you dont hear anything when you press this button then you may want to use the volume buttons to increase the volume.

Also remember that if you have not picked up the handset or pressed he hook/hold button the unit will use automatic mode, which is to say that all you will do is load the document, dial the number, and then press the start button.

Problem with fax


I'm no expert but, did you try touching the online or hook button on the fax to hear the dial tone? Or connect a basic home phone into the phone jack at the wall the fax was plugged into. Do you get a dial tone. If no dial tone, call the phone company. If there is a dial tone, its the fax.

Faxing


you could try pressing the on hook dial button once you have a dial tone dial the fax number you are trying to reach and then you will be able to hear f there is a fax tone form the other machine or a error message from your operator. If there is a series of beeps with the document in the feeder press send.

The most common cause of not sending is ECM (Error Correction Mode) press menu and within TTI settings make sure this is turned off.

Hope this helps you
Thanks J
