All Calls come in as FAX

All Calls come in as FAX

Have had Comcast phone only one week and have had problems since. Got the internet kind of fixed but now every call coming in after 3rd ring has screeching FAX line sound. I don't have a fax line. Anyone else having this problem? Calling tech again (who was here yesterday) today.

Re: All Calls come in as FAX

You need to contact Comcast to get your number changed, some fax machine thinks you are a fax machine to receive fax's.

 

It will not stop for a long time until the fax machine is programmed to remove your number to dial.

I have had this number for 6 years and it has never been a FAX number.

Do you have the phone connected to an all-in-one printer that has a fax in it? 

 

If you do check to make sure that your printer is not answering the incoming call.

No I have checked my control panel also to see if their is a FAX somehow on there also where my phone and computer are now connected. My printer on currrently is a copier/printer/scanner not a fax. Going to call tech support again I guess

It was a longshot, but worth mentioning. Good luck.
