Connecting a fax machine involves plugging in the power cable into the wall, hooking up the phone line into the wall and plugging in the line to the phone line jack as opposed to the handset jack. Hook up a fax machine with information from a business machine repairman in this free video on fax machines and printers.
Hi, my name is Steve Munoz. I am with Duncan Business Machines and I am going to show you how to hook up a fax machine. Fairly simple. Some fax machines have a cable, the power cable, that comes unhooked in the back. Some do not. So, most of them do have the unhook. But, you gotta have the power cable. And on the back, there's always a phone line symbol and an actual telephone handset emblem. You always want to put, coming from the phone jack on the wall. You want to put the jack into where it says line, not the handset. The handset is for an extension, which you can use if you need, if you have an extension. That's how you hook up a fax machine.
