Hi ,
The 924 printer which you have is not a standalone faxing printer, in order to send or receive the faxes the printer should be connected to the computer and the phoneline should be connected to the internal modem of the computer and you will be able to send the faxes by scanning the document from the printer, you will find a software called ALL IN ONE CENTER installed on your computer , open the All in one center and then click on FAX Now and you will be able to send a fax.

SOURCE: sending faxes

You can hook a fax to any standard phone line. That is what they are designed for. The only issue is if you share the fax with your telephone, you will need to set the machine up to receive the fax before you answer the phone.

ERROR T82 BIZHUBC280 IMPOSSIBLE TO SEND OR RECEIVE FAX


Check your fax line connection is the FAX line plugged into the Line jack on the copier and NOT THE TELE connector. Must be Line. Take a old phone like a old princess phone and hook it up to the wall get a good dial tone call some one any noise? Have some one call the fax number OK if hooked to the copier get the tradition noise of a fax line, Check the fax line itself use only one with two wires not four, black and yellow only no red and green. Also put on one of the EMI devices on the cable going into the copier cut down on electrical noise. Line can not be digital must be all analog (POT) Plain Old Telephone, have your phone provider check the line.

Tip

A fax machine is just a big ol' telephone answering machine


There is no mystery, seriously. You send a fax exactly the same way as you make a phone call; instead of talking to a person, your fax machine talks to another fax machine. Clicks, squeals, buzz sounds.

If it says it's busy, well, it's busy
If it doesn't answer, it's not set to AUTO RECEIVE
If it says OFF HOOK another device is using YOUR phone line.
If you don't hear a dial tone when you press the HOOK or MONITOR key, the phone line is dead. Check the line with a regular phone.

If a dial tone sounds weird, it is a DIGITAL phone line. You need an ANALOG or regular phone line.

ALL FAX MACHINES ARE ANALOG DEVICES AND WILL NOT WORK RELIABLY ON A DIGITAL SYSTEM OR A COMPUTER....Magic Jack, Vonage, etc. are DIGITAL PHONE SYSTEMS. Don't believe what the Vendor tells you. They are for designed for VOICE GRADE PHONE CALLS ONLY.

The settings in your fax machine were designed by people who are a lot smarter and make more money than us. DON"T MESS WITH THE PARAMETERS.

It's all that SIMPLE !!

Can fax out, incoming faxes going to memory


Now I am very suspicious they hooked you to a DIGITAL phone line.

Make them change you back to ANALOG.

ALL fax machines are ANALOG devices.

I can't hook up the way it says to


Fax machines need an RJ-11 phone cord and are ANALOG

DSL uses RJ-45 and is DIGITAL.

Don't waste your money on a DSL filter, they won't work reliably.

Cannot send faxes when using cable company's digital voice modem


Fax machines must have a standard analog phone line. They won't work on a digital line and can actually be damaged if hooked up to one.

L75 vs DSL phone line


Fax machines are ANALOG devices designed to work with POTS (plain old telephone system).

Sometimes you can get away with a fax or two w/digital lines, but the machine will be very unreliable.

I don't think there is any damage as the machines have voltage limiter circuits built in. [except for lightning]
