Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is***** will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
The fax/phone is probably, I'm sorry to say, 'broken', with a severe control circuitry problem by the sound of what you describe.

I presume it has had a long life in service as a device (since fax-phones have not been made in some time, it must be a fairly old device.) But it seems, its years have run their course.

If it is from 2014 though, it may be worth repairing. Would you be interested in that? if so, please Reply with your local zip code, and I will give you references to local repair shops that might be able to help with this problem.
