No Response/Busy? Try to resend the fax during normal North America business hours. Fax machine errors such as busy, no answer, or not all pages sent may indicate a jammed, out of paper, or out of ink fax machine. If the employees are out of the office, they will not know the fax machine is jammed, out of paper, or out of ink. Virtual fax machines may also be set to do not answer during North America non-business hours, for example.
When you send a fax to North America or any international fax number, we recommend that you edit out any unnecessary dark lines and gray patches. Avoid fancy fax cover pages, keep them simple and straight to the point. Use any photo editing program to clean up or lighten the background of scanned receipts, credit cards, and photos, for example. A page full of useless gray or black patches can add many minutes to your transmission time and cause a fax transmission error. The price to send a fax to North America will be less expensive if you are paying by the minute, and, your fax will have a better chance of completing without an error.
