Hello & Welcome,

Sorry to hear of any issue you are having with your phones.

To help you with this issue, may I ask:
1) The Make & Model Number of the printer/FAX machine you are working with?

2) Is this phone REPLACING a different phone - that WAS connected to the FAX machine - OR - is it a NEW "Addition" to the fax machine?
