SOURCE: Hooking up a fax machine on home telephone line

Well... the problem is that you are running two machines on one line. ONE of them has to take predominance. Both machines should have settings for "number of rings to answer at". It sounds like you currently have the fax set to less than the answering machine, so the fax picks up after two rings, while your answering machine might be set to more, which it never gets to, because the fax answered the call already(It doesn't matter if you answer the phone, or the fax picks up, once the line is open, the answering machine is taken out of the equation). Even if you set the answering machine to answer first, you're then taking the fax service out of the loop. I'm not sure how you're going to juggle that, since both types of machines each need control over the line to work properly. That's why we (business machine folk) always recommend a dedicated line for fax service.

Are there any other phones that use that line? If you have a phone attached to the fax machine, is the reciever in the holster all the way?

Printer laserjet 3055 give fax problem problem is fax comm.error 322


Good day.
A fax comm.error 322 usually means:
Telephone line conditions were too poor to send a fax.

Solution:

1. Reattempt the fax transmission at a different time when telephone line conditions have improved.

2. If the session fails after transmitting several pages of a large document, retransmit the document as several smaller documents.

You can also try disabling the ECM feature:
Reconfigure the local fax machine to use different configuration settings, toggle the ECM state and/or select a slower reception speed.

To Disable ECM, perform the following steps:

1. Press the or > button until the front display reads "Fax Setup".

2. Press the ENTER/MENU button.

3. Press the or > button until the front display reads "All Faxes".

4. Press the ENTER/MENU button.

5. Press the or > button until the front display reads "Error Correction".

6. Press the ENTER/MENU button.

7. Press the button until the font display reads "Off" and then press the ENTER/MENU button to save the setting. (Off disables ECM and On enables ECM).



TIP: It would also be helpful to check physical conditions of your phone cord and telephone filters if you are using one.

Our HP 2140 fax under distinctive ring setting DRPD was answering under our Master ring (double Ring) until yesterday it switched inside somehow where it now answers regular phone ring instead of...


Was the fax plugged into another telephone line? Maybe a power surge?

My solution would be to reconfigure the fax from scratch to learn the ring pattern.

From the Manual:

Step 1-Teach the HP Fax the ring pattern

The HP Fax will learn the ring pattern when you call it from another telephone or fax
machine.

1. Be ready to call the fax machine.
2. Press Menu repeatedly until BASIC FAX displays and press OK.
3. Use LEFT ARROW - RIGHT ARROW BUTTONS to scroll through the options until DRPD Mode displays and press OK.
Call this fax from another fax machine... Waiting Ring...
will display.
4. Call the HP Fax.

DRPD OK will display when the pattern has been learned and the HP Fax will return
to Ready mode.

Step 2-Set up distinctive ring (DRPD) answer mode

Once you have activated distinctive ring, it becomes one of the answering modes you
can select by pressing the Mode/Contrast button.

Press Mode/Contrast repeatedly until DRPD Mode appears in the display.

• In Ready mode, DRPD appears in the right hand corner of the display.
• Now, the HP Fax will manage calls and faxes as if it were set to AUTO mode
(AUTO mode on page 28)


TIP: Distinctive ring must be set up again if you reassign your fax number
or connect the machine to another telephone line. Once set up again (that
is, the fax machine has learned the ring pattern and the answering mode is
correctly set), you should test the fax machine by calling the fax number
and another number on the same line. The machine should respond
appropriately to a call placed to the fax number with fax tones, and to a
normal telephone call with the expected ring pattern.

Comm Error 283 and 232 what does this mean and how do i fix it.


These error codes indicate that the Line (Telephone line) reception quality is very poor that the machine couldn't print/receive the full page fax. If i am right, this happens only with a particular number or if you are sending, your line's the problem. Try it after a while and if possible when you think the line's not so busy and improved. You can also try disabling the ECM (Error Correction Mode) by following the steps below:
  • Press the < or > button until the front display reads "Fax Setup".
  • Press the ENTER/MENU button.
  • Press the < or > button until the front display reads "All Faxes".
  • Press the ENTER/MENU button.
  • Press the < or > button until the front display reads "Error Correction".
  • Press the ENTER/MENU button.
  • Press the < or > button until the font display reads "Off" and then press the ENTER/MENU button to save the setting. (Off disables ECM and On enables ECM).

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Hi check the following article to from HP
Problems with sending and receiving FAX

HP FAX ISSUES


Check the TELEPHONE LINE

Make sure that you have plugged the phone cord directly and securely into the wall jack and into the back port of the fax product. The fax port on your product is marked "Line," "To Wall Jack," or with a wall jack symbol.

Check LIU

Make sure the Line Interface Unit (box that the phone cord plugs into) is fully seated into the back of the fax product.

Remove the SPLITTER

Remove any other devices from the line such as splitters, credit card machines, or telephone answering machines.


Can try sending the Fax on Another Line


CHECK WITH DIFFERENT CABLE
Try using a different telephone cord.

Firstly, you will need to get a 2nd ringtone from your phone provider. Most of them will provide a designated "fax ring" (not a new number) for little or no cost.

In DRPD mode, you can receive a call using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection (DRPD) feature. “Distinctive Ring” is a telephone company service which enables a user to use a single telephone line to answer several different services.

Using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection feature, your fax machine can “learn” the ring pattern you designate to be answered by the fax machine. Unless you change it, this ringing pattern will continue to be recognized and answered as a fax call, and all other ringing patterns will be forwarded to the
extension telephone or answering machine plugged into the EXT. jack. You can easily suspend or change Distinctive Ring
Pattern Detection at any time.

Before using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection option, Distinctive Ring service must be installed on your telephone line by the telephone company. To set up Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection, you will need access to another telephone or someone available to dial your fax number from outside (a cell phone will do!).

To set up the DRPD mode:

1 Press Menu until “Fax Setup” appears on the top line of the display.
2 Press the scroll button ( or ) until you see “Receive Mode” on the bottom line and press Enter.
3 Press the scroll button ( or ) until you see “DRPD Mode” on the bottom line and press Enter.
4 When “Set” displays on the bottom line, press Enter.
“Waiting Ring” appears on the display.
5 Call your fax number from another telephone. It is not necessary to place the call from a fax machine.
6 When your machine begins to ring, do not answer the call.
The machine requires several rings to learn the pattern.
When the machine completes learning, the LCD displays “End DRPD Setup”.
If the DRPD setup fails, “DRPD Ring Error” appears. Press Enter when “DRPD Mode” displays and retry from step 3.
7 To return to Standby mode, press Stop/Clear.
When the DRPD feature is set up, the DRPD option is available in the Receive Mode menu.

To receive faxes in the DRPD mode,
you need to set the menu to DRPD;

NOTES:
• DRPD must be set up again if you re-assign your fax number, or connect the machine to another telephone line.

• After DRPD has been set up, call your fax number again to verify that the machine answers with a fax tone. Then have
a call placed to a different number assigned to that same line to be sure the call is forwarded to the extension telephone or answering machine plugged into the EXT. jack.

• In Tel mode, you can receive a fax by picking up the handset of the extension phone and then pressing the remote receive code Alternatively, you can press On Hook
Dial
(you can hear a fax tone from the remote machine) and then press Start on the control panel of your machine.
• In the Fax mode, the machine answers an
incoming call and immediately goes into fax
reception mode.
• In Ans/Fax mode, the answering machine answers an incoming call, and the caller can leave a message on the answering machine. If the fax machine senses a fax tone on the line, the call automatically switches to Fax mode.
• In DRPD mode, you can receive a call using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection (DRPD) feature. This option is available only when you set up the DRPD Mode.

The full user manual for your machine is located here

Hope that is of help to you :)

Cannot receive faxes from certain people


Does this affect outgoing faxes? Sounds as though you may have a faulty telephone line. Plug in a telephon handset to the telephone socket on the wall to hear the quality of sound. If there is any interference on the line this will affect your communication. But because it is intermittent, you may not hear anything when you listen. Try and use the machine on another line - I know - if you're at home there may not be another line to use but it does sound like a line fault to me.

Canon Fax phone L80


If it is a dedicated fax line it is probabaly best set to fax only mode. Fewer rings (No more than two) FaxTel mode will ring for longer to allow you to pick it up if its a phone call.

Check if the machine has dial tone by onhook button or handset to check. If you have none try testing with another phone to rule out the machine.

Try a manual reception. Pick up the phone when it rings and press the start button.

Can't fax


You probably have the telephone cord patched into the wrong jack. Make sure it is plugged into the jack marked "line." If the problem persists, try doing this: 1. Unplug the power cord and the telephone line cord. Then wait for 30 sec or so before 1st plugging in the powercord. Wait until the display reads the currently set time, then plug the telephone line cord into the jack marked "line."
