Why did my fax machine suddenly stop working?

Phone line ok. Been working for years, no problems. Suddenly can't receive or send fax. Tested phone line that is working fine but though you get a dial tone on the fax, it won't dial out.

Check that the memory is not full. Also, make sure a setting like (auto-dial 9 for outside line) is set incorrectly.

Thumbs Up!

Our Epson Sylus CX9400Fax Series is not receiving or sending faxes. We have already done the phone call to India thing for 90 minutes. All settings were changed and tested. They are now back to factory...

Ok, here's a check list for you.
SENDING

Check the following:

  • Make sure the phone cable is connected correctly and verify that the phone line works by connecting a phone to it.


  • Make sure that your recipient's fax machine is turned on and working.


  • If you connected the Epson Stylus CX to a DSL phone line, you must install a DSL filter to the line or you won't be able to fax. Contact your DSL provider for the necessary filter.


  • If your phone line has static or other noise problems, turn off the ECM (Error Correction Mode) setting and try faxing again.

    Follow these steps to turn off the ECM setting:

    1. Press Setup.


    2. Select Fax Settings, then press OK. You see this screen:

    4. Select Communication, then press OK.


    5. Press cp_button_44_er.gif and select ECM. Then press cp_button_42_er.gif and set it to Off.


    6. Press OK.



RECEIVING

  • Make sure the phone cable is connected correctly and verify that the phone line works by connecting a phone to it.


  • To receive faxes automatically, make sure the Auto Answer light is turned on. To turn it on, press the Auto Answer/Space button.

IntelliFax 4100 suddenly slow to print

If the dial tone sounds NOISY or SCRATCHY there probably is a phone line problem. Try changing the phone cord first. Are you using DSL phone service?

You have a very reliable fax machine.

Cannot receive faxes, but can send

Hello,
I can send faxes from my HP Fax 1010, but cannot receive them. I can dial the number from another phone but it will keep ringing and the machine never picks up. We have tested the phone line and all seems well. Is there some setting on the fax machine itself that I need to change in order to receive? Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Not sending fax

Plug a phone into that line and see what happens. Let me know what happens. Plug the phone into the line that goes into the fax machine. Make sure it works and is clear. No static or noise.

If you have had a power outage or spike, it may have reset to factory settings.You have to go into you menue and find the fax settings mode. Go to the receive,make sure it is set to auto.If not you may have a tx/rx board problem.
