I Googled the manual and was trying to program the unit with the fax header for date and time when I realized that this unit does not fax! The G55 only prints, scans, and copies.

My girlfriend gave me this unit specifically to address my need to send faxes in my business. I guess she assumed that being an "all-in-one" unit it did faxes too. It doesn't.

So my question is now moot but I still have the problem of not being able to send faxes.

Thanks,

No dial tone on handset. can't send or recieve fax.


? Other equipment, which uses the same phone line as the HP All-in-One,
might be causing the test to fail. To find out if other equipment is causing a
problem, disconnect everything from the phone line, and then run the test
again. If the Dial Tone Detection Test passes without the other equipment,
then one or more pieces of the equipment is causing problems; try adding
them back one at a time and rerunning the test each time, until you identify
which piece of equipment is causing the problem.
? Try connecting a working phone and phone cord to the telephone wall jack
that you are using for the HP All-in-One and check for a dial tone. If you do
not hear a dial tone, contact your telephone company and have them check
the line.
? Make sure you have correctly connected the HP All-in-One to the telephone
wall jack. Using the phone cord supplied in the box with the HP All-in-One,
connect one end to your telephone wall jack, then connect the other end to
the port labeled 1-LINE on the back of the HP All-in-One.

If the supplied phone cord is not long enough, you can extend it. For
information, see The phone cord that came with my HP All-in-One is not long
enough.
Check the connection between the telephone wall jack and the HP All-in-One
to make sure the phone cord is secure.
Make sure you use the phone cord that came with the HP All-in-One. If you
do not use the supplied phone cord to connect from the telephone wall jack
to the HP All-in-One, you might not be able to send or receive faxes. After
you plug in the phone cord that came with the HP All-in-One, run the fax test
again.
If you are using a phone splitter, this can cause faxing problems. (A splitter is
a two-cord connector that plugs into a telephone wall jack.) Try removing the
splitter and connecting the HP All-in-One directly to the telephone wall jack.

If you are using a phone splitter, this can cause faxing problems. (A splitter is

splitter and connecting the HP All-in-One directly to the telephone wall jack.
If your telephone system is not using a standard dial tone, such as some
PBX systems, this might cause the test to fail. This will not cause a problem
sending or receiving faxes. Try sending or receiving a test fax.
Check to make sure the country/region setting is set appropriately for your
country/region. If the country/region setting is not set or is set incorrectly, the
test might fail and you might have problems sending and receiving faxes.
Make sure you connect the HP All-in-One to an analog phone line or you will
not be able to send or receive faxes. To check if your phone line is digital,
connect a regular analog phone to the line and listen for a dial tone. If you do
not hear a normal sounding dial tone, it might be a phone line set up for
digital phones. Connect the HP All-in-One to an analog phone line and try
sending or receiving a fax.
Make sure you use the phone cord that came with the HP All-in-One. If you
do not use the supplied phone cord to connect from the telephone wall jack
to the HP All-in-One, you might not be able to send or receive faxes. After
you plug in the phone cord that came with the HP All-in-One, run the fax test
again.
After you resolve any problems found, run the fax test again to make sure it
passes and the HP All-in-One is ready for faxing. If the Dial Tone Detection test
continues to fail, contact your telephone company and have them check the
phone line.

How to test, and setup the Fax machine on HP multifunctional printers.


Hi.


Please follow the instructions below to install and test the fax on an HP multifunctional unit.

1 - before connecting the printer install the software in the CD provided with the printer on the computer. The fax unit will also work in stand alone mode, but without installing the software you will not be able to control the unit from the connected computer.

2 - Have ready a phone cable. Ensure that the phone cable that you want to use has only two connectors:

3 - Connect one end of the telephone cord to the telephone jack andthen connect the other end of the cord to the socket labeled 1-Line on the back of the HP fax printer.

4 - The multifunction HP is now ready to send and receive Fax.


To send a basic fax:

1. Load your originals.
2. Enter the fax number by using the dial button on keypad.
3. Press START FAX Black.If the device detects an original loaded inthe automatic document feeder, it will send the document to the numberyou entered

If the Fax is not sending, then check that the original is loaded properly, then run the fax test following procedure below:

  1. press Setup
  2. select Tools
  3. select Run fax test
  4. press OK
Or:

  1. Load the original into the input tray.
  2. Press the Setup button (the one with a wrench) on the unit control panel.
  3. Press right arrow, select Tools, then press OK.
  4. On the Tools menu, press the right arrow to select Run Fax Test, and then press OK. The fax diagnostic test prints.
  5. Review the report.
If the test does not return ALL PASS , then setup the fax manually.

Change the HP fax settings
  1. Disconnect the telephone cord from the single-line telephone and then plug it into the port marked 1-Line at the back of the HP product.
  2. Press the Setup button (the one with a wrench) on the product control panel.
  3. Press the right arrow to select Basic Fax Setup or Advanced Fax Setup, then press the right arrow again to change settings to the settings listed in the table below.

After verifying Fax settings, try again sending a fax.

If still no luck, try calling the HP number listed on your user manual. In that case there may be a fault.

Also ensure that you do not have a VOIP phone rather than a landline phone, in that case setup will be completely different.

We cannot dial out when sending a fax. You can hear the line open but no dialing tone. Any ideas?


  1. Make sure that you have plugged the phone cord directly and securely into the wall jack and into the back port of the fax product. The fax port on your product is marked "Line," "To Wall Jack," or with a wall jack symbol.
  2. Make sure the Line Interface Unit (box that the phone cord plugs into) is fully seated into the back of the fax product.
  3. Remove any other devices from the line such as splitters, credit card machines, or telephone answering machines.
  4. Try sending and receiving faxes on a different fax line.
  5. Try using a different telephone cord.
  6. Have the phone company test your line for static or noise problems.
  7. Turn Error Correction Mode (ECM) off, if you encounter the same error repeatedly.

A regular old (POTS) phone line will send/receive faxes just fine. If you want to connect it to your computer, you'll need TWO phone cords: one into the wall, and one into the computer, with both connecting into the fax machine itself. Those ports should be marked on the fax.

Error 441 seems to take all pages but receiver get aapx. 1 paragraph & the rest is blurred - same incoming


This means that an error occurred during transmission after one or more partial pages were sent. The sending machine was unable to restart the control channel connection(handshake) before sending more data. This error typically occurs when the receiving fax disconnects after receiving part of a page. It can also be caused if the receiving fax is using a fax format incompatible with the HP fax (usually during color faxing) or the line speed drops to an unacceptable level.

Solutions

Check that the phone cord is plugged in correctly and is not cut, creased or damaged.


Make sure that the phone connection terminal box is not damaged and that the cable connecting to it is not damaged.

Try the fax at a different time when telephone line conditions have improved.

Difficulty sending a fax


Hello. Please make sure your telephone line is plugged into the correct outlet.

Most fax machines typically allow you to plug the line (the cord that goes from the fax machine to the wall jack) and and a telephone (the telephone connects to the fax machine).

In order to fax correctly, you must plug the line into the jack with a block (looks like a 'T') marked on it. Do not plug the line into the jack marked with a phone hand set marked on it.

This shoulds in detail how to connect the line properly. For this printer the line cord must be plugged into the jack labelled "L"
