Cannot receive faxes from one number

I have an SCX-5739fw multifunction machine set up. I can send faxes to one of my clients, but I cannot receive any from her. Her fax number is the only one this happens with. She can send faxes to anyone except me and I can receive faxes from anyone except her. When she tries to send a fax to me, she just receives the "this line has been disconnected" message. I have gone many times between my cable provider and Samsung, but have not come close to solving this problem. I don't know what I haven't tried. Can it be as simple as trying a different number? This did not happen until I moved my office to my home. I was able to keep my phone number, but I had to get a new fax number.

Re: Cannot receive faxes from one number

Hi adminsp,

Since it sounds like you have a phone line and a fax line, I'd do a one time switch: connect the fax machine up to the regular phone line; then have your client try to fax you on that line. If you receive it just fine, then it's probably something with your phone company.

Years ago we had this issue.

About 2 clients could never send a fax to our fax machine. One day they revealed they had trouble with other locations as well so the problem was not at our end. But you might think it was. But given how odd things can happen with dial up communications you try other lines.
