hp 1040 fax

When calling in to the fax, the modem will answer, then the call will go dead, and in about 5 seconds the call drops. What could be the problem?

Check manuals how to change country (region) for each region has different FAX protocols/values. Also, check if the machine is behind PBA or DSL digital lines, since HP FAX devices are tested and certified for analog, plain, dedicated telephone line - everithying else should (and will) produce such problems.
If that tel. line is plain, dedicated than experiment with another country/region. For example, most of eastern europe works best with region set to Germany or Austria.
