My fax, which is on its own line suddenly stopped receiving faxes, saying communication error has occured. I can still send faxes. Could this be caused by heavy static, of unknown origin, on the phone line yesterday. Don't know if the static was also on the fax. Epson tech support says it is all one line that is then split, so the static would be on both. What can I do to fix this?

Put a common phone on it and see if it will work. I suspect you still have a normal pots line.

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

Are you saying the fax machine isn't working and you're worried it may have been damaged by the static or whatever may have caused the static? Or is the static a continuing problem and you're wondering how to remove it?

Thank you for your response.
They have been contacted, and I was unable to speak to a person, just an automated system, so I was unable to inquire if the static could be causing the problem., only that the problem would be resolved by Sat evening.

thank you for your answer. my concern is to get faxes on a consistent basis, regardless of what the problem maybe. Hopefully the phone co will be able to clear the line and I will receive faxes on a consistent basis

POTS Plain Old Telephone Service.

Fax is sort of a spam deal. While you may have an issue with your phone system you also need to know that people send spam fax.
