If you are using the phone while trying to send or receive a fax, it will not work.

There were some devices out that would allow you to do this, but they never really worked that well.

If you want to be on the phone, and send or receive a fax, you will need a second line for the fax machine, or you need to use a service like eFax (it sends a fiax like sending email)

Couldn't send fax. no tapi device found

I presume you are trying to send a fax from your pc?

Most modern pc's do not have an internal modem. Check to see if you have one and if so that it configured for the correct type of dialling ie tone or pulse.

I must tell you that this is not a printer issue, since printer does not have inbuilt fax capabilities....Actually you are trying to send fax from the computer using a Data Fax Modem. Printer just used for scanning and printing documents for fax...

1. Please check if your computer have Fax modem.
Look at the back of the system tower, if you see a phone jack port (probably two of them).

2. If yes then , you need to have a telephone cable directly from wall (not the ethernet cable coming from DSL modem), fax works on analog signals which is possible only from telehone line.

If your phone line is working, there is no chance the it will give you error again for NO Dial tone

Fax problem

Hi Fatimo25,
The screen on your fax machine displays how the machine is set to receive calls. TEL MODE means the machine will not auto-answer incomming calls and will operate as a normal telephone device, it will still however be able to send a fax in this setting.
Place your message on the original tray and pick up the handset, dial the number and when the distant machine answers press the start key or ask for their fax machine and when you hear the high pitched fax tone press start.
There is a button on the panel that will allow you to change the reception mode of your machine to the other settings.
Your machine is of a model that doesn't come into this country so I have no manuals to forward you. You can try however to access the SHARP web site
Hope this helps you

Problems to SEND a fax

I'm not sure what you mean entirely but this could help.

Usually sending faxes are only a problem if:

You have the printer set up correctly. (Phone line must be in line 1) or your phone line digital, which the product does not support unless you have a filter.

Also, if by different dial tone you mean "distinctive ring," that also is not supported by the product.

No fax reception

Send will work on any phone lines
fax machines are often set to only answer 'secondary' ring tones, double triple or higher. When the line was repaired the phone company may have dropped the special tone off your secondary fax line number, fax will not answer without that tone.
Check in the fax answer settings, what the ring tone is, specific instruction on menu settings in your user guide,
Ring your fax line, and check the tone.
If single number fax/phone, check that the fax is set to asnwer all calls then pass on non faxes
