A friend has just obtained a Sharp UX-P410 fax machine and asked me to send him a fax from my PC to see if his fax works. His fax rings twice and then Zilch. I have sent faxes from my PC to other fax machines without a problem, but seem to recollect a comment quite some time ago that not all fax machines will receive sent from a PC. Anyone throw any light on this?
Whereas it is not new it is one used by his company only last week and was given to him to use in his work. In fact he received a fax from them yesterday but needed a new print ribbon for it and that was fitted today. Initially I thought that the ribbon might not have been fitted properly and might be the cause, but he has been able to print a help sheet using it so I do not think it could be that.
I have contacted a friend who has a dedicated fax machine who was able to forward a fax without problem. Perhaps my memory was correct in that some fax machines will not accept faxes from PC's. I have no idea why this should be, but tonights attempts would seem to endorse that in the absence of any other explanation.
