The problem I had was not with a fax machine but with an Olympus Transcription machine. I never got any assistance from the technical team as I got the message to wait for payment to go through and never got any further!

I have since found that the problem was in my PC.

You are using stereo headset, but it is a mono output. So you need either mono headset or an adapter that will allow the mono sound to go to stereo output for a stereo headset.

Can't get fax machine to work. I need to enter ECM mode on the machine so I can receive faxes but on the report print out it's saying mode G3. I can send faxes but can't receive them. Please...


Doubt if you need to set up the fax with ECM ( error correction mode )...a lot of fax's come with ECM these days set to ON. Don't know why because in the majority of cases the phone lines are of good enough quality that its not necessary. However, that said; I would suggest you pick up your handset and listen to the dial tone on the phone/fax line and listen to see if you are hearing static noises...if you do then its likely you have a bad line and should report it to your phone provider.
If the line is good, then I would ask you to try and make a phone call off your fax machine(assuming it has a handset) and again listen to the sounds off the line. I would then get someone locally with a fax machine to send you a test page to see if the machine works from a different number/location.

Muratec F-110 fax machine can send faxs but does not receive, i tried different phone lines, changed configurations changed toner, drum. nothing seems to work thanks, rick


Make sure the machine is in Fax mode and NOT Tel mode. Other thing to try is to pickup handset and listen to see if you hear "Dial-tone" from the line...if you don't then you have probably lost part of the NCU pcb in the machine.

Fax will not recieve but will send fax


what does the display reed. To receive fax automatically the display needs to reed
( fax mode or auto ) . If in the manual mode you need to pick up the receiver listen for the tones then press start.

make sure the phone cord from the wall jack is from the wall to the line connection MOT THE EXT. CONNECTION on the fax ( nothing in between the wall & fax )

hope this works

Okay for starters, you need to check to see if that fax machine is automatically answering the phone when it rings. you can check to see if it is trying to recieve by call that phone number from another phone and listen if it answers and when it does, does it make a high pitched squelling sound that varies in pitch.
if it does then it should be working ok, if not then you must program your recieve mode to automatically answer.
you can also check to see if it's sending by doing the opposite: put a sheet of paper in the machine to fax and dial your cell phone or other number, when it rings pick it up and listen for the high pitch squeel, if it works then your fax is working properly.

Thank You,

Mikey

Brother Fax T78 wont 'ring'


Yes. try bypassing the router by plugging your phone directly into the phone jack, and have someone send you a test fax.
What happens it even now days, the majority of fax machines still use analogue phone lines, and the digital signal will mess them up, mostly because the digital lines have less power and current, and do not signal the recieve mode to switch on.
Very common occurance. Glad you mentioned the router or I would have sent you down a long winding path LOL.
You are suffering a low signal issue.
The reason you can call out is that you are manually activating the phone or fax when you remove the receiver. When you receive, it taked the proper signal strength to activate the fax modem.

Canon fax 2060P not recieving faxes


It seems that the protocol is failing. Just check, by printing a receive report. If there are errors it is after the check frame. If no errors, it is failing before the check frame. In either case, 1st aid is to listen using a handset for noise or static on the line. If the line is clear, then you will have to call service to change the tx/rx attenuation.

To recieve fax on brother


Press the 'RECEIVE MODE' button on the right side of the control panel, its next to the large 'FAX START' button. Here are your options :

Select Receive Mode
MANUAL
—You must answer all calls yourself. If you hear fax tones, press
Fax Start
to begin receiving the fax, then hang up. You can use this mode with
Distinctive Ringing. (See
Distinctive Ring
, page 8-1.)
FAX ONLY
—The fax machine automatically answers every call as a fax call. You
cannot receive a voice call, but you can dial out and make a voice call.
FAX/TEL
—The fax machine automatically answers every call. If the call is a fax, it
prints the fax. If the call is not a fax, it signals you with a double-ring (ring-ring),
different from the phone company ringing, to alert you to pick up the call. If you select
this setting, you’ll need to set the Ring Delay and F/T Ring Time features (on the
following pages). If you have extension phones on the same line as the fax machine,
set Ring Delay to 4. (See
For FAX/TEL Mode Only
, page 5-5.)
TAD:ANSWER MACH.
—This is the only setting in which you can use an external
answering machine. Your telephone answering device is connected to your fax
machine, and answers every call. Once the TAD answers, the fax machine listens for
fax tones. If it detects fax tones, it prints the fax.
The TAD setting works
only
with an external telephone answering device (TAD); it
does not work with telephone company Voice Mail. Ring Delay and F/T Ring Time
do
not
work in this setting.
