Can't receive or send faxes

There is not dial tone or sound of numbers being entered.  The phone line works because when I dial the number for the fax the phone rings.

Are you pressing the speaker/hook/manual dial switch (not sure of its label)?

 

Make sure phone line from wall is connected to fax's line socket not the ext. one

 

Is it in Fax mode? Can you copy OK?

    Button stuck on keypad is a possibility, so is it not being in fax mode,also I have a question, if you dial a number from the fax does it ring dialed number and you are just unable to hear number being dialed?


    You could hook up ext phone to fax and see if you can dial via that too,


    Is it in fax mode?

    Can you copy/print ok ?

Bell Studio 4500 DECT phone with answering machine: just out of warranty, this phone does everything properly up to entering a number, then dialling, BUT not producing a ringing-tone or getting through to...


I gather you have the setting for tone and pulse set to tone? Also are you aware the ringing tone is generated by the phone company? When you dial a number and it connects, the phone provider sends the ring signal to the dial phone and the ringing signal to the dialing phone. Do you get a dial tone before dialing?

Panasonic fax machine plays "not


First, the phone line to your fax machine should go through the filter.
Also, you haven't mentioned if you can just dial and call someone. Can you?

One way to test it is to dial manually as you would dial any telephone number.

Insert the document to be faxed, lift the receiver on the fax machine, listen for a clear dial tone, then dial the number.

If there is a fax machine at the other end you will hear the chirping sound after a few rings. Then press START and see what happens.

We cannot receive or send a fax. If I dial our fax number it rings as a normal phone and not the sound that a fax number makes. The machine is only a few months old.


Not sure how a fax machine is supposed to sound when it rings, before the fax answers it will sound exactly the same on the phone as dialing a regular phone number. If you are using distinct ring tone service where the fax line is supposed to double ring and it is not then it is possible that your phone provider has problems. Are you able to make a regular voice call on the phone line that the fax is supposed to use? If no, then it is definetly the line not the machine.

How to recieve a fax on the Canon PIXMA MX340 Wireless Office All-in-One Printer


Take your incoming phone line and plug it into the place that says "line" on your fax machine. Plug another phone cord into where it says "phone" and connect this to your telephone. Test to make sure you have chosen the right places by dialing a phone number to fax to and listen for the dial tone. If you get a dial tone, then you have set it up correctly.

On the fax machine look for the button that says "menu". Push it and use the up and down arrows to navigate the options on the display. Look for fax set up and press "ok" or "enter" on the fax machines keyboard to access this area. Look for "number of rings" and change the fax machine to a number of rings that is less then your voice mail box if you have one. Then close and save your choices.

Have someone send a test fax by dialing your phone number for the line connected to the machine. The fax machine will pick up on the number of rings set and automatically begin receiving and printing a copy of your incoming fax.

You cannot use magic jack.

You can also choose to manually answer an incoming fax if you see that your display on the fax machine says "ringing" or incoming" you can push the "start" button and this will start receiving your incoming fax.

Can't send or receive fax [email protected]


Check the cable, i.e. plug an analogue phone into the cable and listen for a dial tone. If none, are you plugged into a digital line?

If a dial tone is heard, is it an intermittant dial tone (message waiting) because this can stop the fax from working. If so, resolve this and try again.

Do you need to dial a number to get an outside line? If so this needs to be entered before the fax number on outgoing faxes.

Brother Intellifax 4100 unable to send fax but can receive


Is the fax sensing the paper you put in to send out? Check the little black levers that poke into the document area. They should move freely when you touch them gently with a finger, and return quickly when you take your finger off. If it can't sense the paper it won't try to send a fax. If, when the paper is inserted, the display changes from whatever it said to anything else, the paper is being sensed.
Let's try dialing manually. Just left of the 1 key is a button labeled "Hook." Pressing that will take the telephone line "off-hook," like picking up the receiver of a phone. You should hear a dial tone -- if not, try adjusting the speaker volume with the buttons just right of the numbers. Once you get a dial tone, dial a number, whether it's another fax, or your own cell phone. As far as the phone company is concerned, your fax is just a phone, calling another phone. If you can make a call, and the phone at the other end rings, we're closing in on the problem. If you can dial another fax machine manually, you can still turn this into a fax call, assuming there's paper ready to fax. After the distant fax answers, touch the Start button, and your fax should take over. If you can't dial manually, try unplugging your fax from the phone line, and replacing it with a regular phone. Can you make calls with it? If not, the fax is no longer a suspect - you have a phone line problem.
Are you at a business where you need to dial 9 to get an outside line? It's easy to forget that detail when you're using a fax, but it has to dial out just like any other phone on the system.
If you can't get a dial tone at all with the fax, but it works with the phone alone, the main board in the fax is probably bad. If you can dial manually, using the Hook switch, but the same number doesn't work when you dial xxx-xxxx-Start, that sounds like a main board problem, too.

Recieving faxes
  • Plug a regular, non-digital, phone into the fax's phone line and see if you get a dial tone
    • If you do not have a dial tone, seek support from your telephone service provider
  • Dial the fax number from a phone    
    • Normal circumstance is that you will have the fax machine pick up and make high-pitched noises
    • If the fax does not pick up, put a regular phone on the fax line and see if the regular phone rings when dialed
      • If the phone rings, answer it and see if there is line noise
        • If the line is clear, call the service number listed on your fax
        • If the line is staticy or unclear, call your telephone service provider
      • If the phone does not ring, call your telephone service provider
Sending faxes
  • Attempt to dial the fax number you are trying to send to from another phone.
    • If you hear electronic noises on the line, the other end has a fax machine on the other end
      • Check to see if you can recieve faxes.
    • If the remote fax does not answer, the problem is on the remote side, contact the recipient

Outgoing fax never goes


Do you have the same problem with different numbers that you fax to? Are you usinga voip phone service? I use Vonage and have a lot of trouble with faxing. Call the number you are faxing to with a different phone and listen for a fax tone.
