    cannot sent a fax, receiving is OK. connection ends with the fax-recognition of the receiver.

    I tried to reduce compatibility, altering ISDN to normal, sending to another fax: always the same problem.

    We have a Brothers 560 Fax Copier and we can not send out faxes. We can receive, but not fax out. It tells me "poor line condition". Not sure what to look for to fix this.

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.

After calling the Phone company and finding out my line was working, I unplugged my FAX machine from the plug unit, waited 20 seconds and plugged it back in to the outlet.

Check your Ink cartridge if it is fully empty means it will not print received faxes so it will save in memory

Fax can not recieve. It sends okay. Hp fax 1010

Most likely the machine has been set to "manual receive" from either "fax/tel" or "automatic" receive. check your manual to check/ change the setting.

I can send but cannot recievefax. Fax is on SLEEP all the time.

The machine is set with the sleep mode as a default. The fax part can be changed to recieve a fax by pressing the fax mode button. Press it until it says Fax only, not F/T. F/T means Fax/Telephone. This mode would make it to where you have to pick up the reciever and press start when a fax comes in. The Fax only mode means it will pick up everytime a fax comes in automatically. Let me know if this was helpful. Please give my helping a rating. Thanks!
