Canon PIXMA MX850 fax and FiOS - "No Dial Tone"

I have a new multi-function printer and FiOS Internet, Phone and TV. My old analog phones work just fine and get a dial tone through all the phone jacks, but the fax doesn't recognize the dial tone. I've read about micro-filter and splitting devices for DSL connections; will they help with my problem?

 

Hope someone has advice!

 

Thanks!

No, a DSL filter will not help with your problem. Do you have dial tone when you plug a phone in to the same jack using the same line cord? If no then the fax is not built to tight specifications and will not work.

Re: Canon PIXMA MX850 fax and FiOS - "No Dial Tone"

On your vioce phones, do you get a dial tone the exact second you pick up the phone, or is there a delay, like a incoming voicemail msg that needs to be listened to?  I'm willing to bet that your phone system tells you you have unheard voicemail messages by adding a delay before voicemail, and that will affect your fax machine.  Clear your voicemail and try again.
