SOURCE: Black pages on every fax I send
Is sounds like your exposure lamp is not coming on, put an original in the machine and make a copy, if you look where the original is coming out, you should be able to see a light illuminatig the original so the scanner can read the image. If this lamp is not coming on you will get a very dark to black image.
If it is just locked up is may be as easy as this. Turn off and unplug the machine for a couple of minutes, reconnect and power up the machine, make a copy. as the machins uses the same parts to copy you should see the result of your efforts.
If the copy look good, try a test fax to someone, and call them for confirmation.
If this doesn't fix the problem, then I suspect the exposure lamp unit has failed.
Hope this is of some help.

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.

You have not told us which model fax you have but most machines have a receive mode selection. Your machine may be set to 'manual' receive. It will only receive if you pick up the phone and hit the start buton. The phone has to be connected to the machine. Look on your machine for the receive button. It may be marked as 'auto receive' and 'manual receive'. Select 'auto' so the machine will answer. It may be marked as 'fax mode' and 'tel mode' if so select 'fax mode''. It may also have a selection 'ans mode' you don't want this as it assumes that you have an answer phone connected to your machine and it waits until the machine answers before it detects incoming fax. Good Luck

Tips for a great answer:
If you have an answering machine connected to the same
line as the fax, set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the
printer does. Increase the number of rings by a factor of 3 over the answering
machine. For example, if the answering machine is set to pick up on 4 rings,
set the printer to pick up on 7 rings.
If you have a voicemail feature in the same line as the fax, you may subscribe from your phone service provider for a distinctive ring pattern feature. You can program your printer to have a distinctive ring pattern and phone number for incoming faxes.
Usually answered in minutes!
