How to test your fax machine

  • 1. Prepare your test fax

    Create a single-page or multi-page black & white test fax. The content of the fax is irrelevant for this test, so feel free to be creative. You can also just use a blank page, but this will give you less information.

  • 2. Send the test fax

    Send your test fax to +19292070142 or +442038089435 from the fax machine or multifunction printer you wish to test. These numbers in the US and the UK, respectively, but you can dial them from anywhere in the world.

  • 3. Await fax arrival

    After sending your fax, wait a minute or two, then refresh this page for it to appear on this page below. During this time our system processes your fax for display.

  • 4. Review your received fax

    Once your fax appears on the page, check it, noting the orientation, quality, masked sender number and your sender ID.

  • 5. Troubleshoot

    If your fax doesn’t appear after a few minutes, review your fax settings, ensuring everything is configured correctly, and try again.
