Tel/Fax/Answering machine keeps freezing


Dear mariss34

While receiving a fax you shouldnt pick up the handset, but if u pick accidently then u will not recieve fax and hence u will hear an engage tone. If you are using a single line for both tel and fax then the party who is sending the fax should pre-inform you that it is a fax call so that when it rings you dont pivk up the handset.

You can also check your line weather it is working properly by using a normal telephone. This should be the first step rather, make calls to confirm it.

The last option is Power off the tel/fax machine for 3min completely and then try again.Also make sure the tel/fax is in tel mode and not in fax mode. Try to assign it in both modes.

If still you are not clear then the mannual which comes along with should help you, If still you cannot figure it out, Then you can call your service provider for help, they should definetely help you out.

Thankyou

to stop the fax automatically switching to fax mode you have to set it to manual to recieve calls and dissable the fax,there should be an auto/fax and call mode, therefore when someone calls it will go to your voicemail, but that means that you will not be able to recieve a fax. Normally auto mode, will first try the fax, if no fax is recognised it will switch to normal line ringer, then if no answer it should go to your voicemail if unanswered.

These machines come with several receiving modes that can be programmed ... mostly by design but quite often ... by accident.

I would check the User Manual for Ring Patterns, Silent Reception and Fax Priority.
You can always see or print out the Option Settings of your facsimile. There it will show the exact picture of what the fax must know before answering the incoming call.
Does it have Fax Tone Detection? Is it set for automatic answering? Faxback? Polling?

Maybe a power hickup might have scrambled some of the programmed features?
Obviously nobody in the location monkeyed around with tha fax buttons, right?

We went to a roll over system on our phone lines and now we cannot receive faxes. We can send them though.


Your roll over system is sending calls to the first line in the sequence and it does not differentiate between voice and fax. You will have to change the roll over so it does not send calls to your fax line. Your internal phone system may still use the fax line for outgoing faxes and voice calls but incoming fax calls have to be sent to the line the fax is on.

Perhaps you can talk to your telephone service about setting up a second line just for your fax sending and retrieval. There must be some type of deal they could give you..especially if you are a loyal customer.

Switched to shaw digital phone service from mts. my ph # and my fax # are different numbers but when phone calls come in the fax picks it up instead of the phone.how do i change this?


Call a cell phone from the fax machine to find out what the machine's number is.
Be warned, tho, fax machines will not work reliably on digital phone lines.
