Object stuck in feeder


Remove the feeder tray and using your fingers (printer turned off and unplugged), rotate the rollers by hand the opposite way that they normally travel. So in other words, 'pull' the roller towards you. It may help if you have the machine upside-down too, so that the dropped item can fall out if the lid is open.

Hp officejet 6500 instructions for receiving a fax? Thanks


You can receive faxes automatically or manually. If you turn off the Auto Answer option, you must receive faxes manually. If you turn on the Auto Answer option (the default setting), the device automatically answers incoming calls and receives faxes after the number of rings that are specified by the Rings to Answer setting. (The default Rings to Answer setting is five rings.)
If you receive a legal-size fax and the device is not currently set to use legal-size paper, the device reduces the fax so that it fits on the paper that is loaded. If you have disabled the Automatic Reduction feature, the device prints the fax on two pages.
NOTE: If you are copying a document when a fax arrives, the fax is stored in the
device memory until the copying finishes. This can reduce the number of fax pages stored in memory.
This section contains the following topics:
• Receive a fax manually
• Set up backup fax reception
• Reprint received faxes from memory
• Poll to receive a fax
• Forward faxes to another number
• Set the paper size for received faxes
• Set automatic reduction for incoming faxes
• Block junk fax numbers
• Receive faxes to your computer (Fax to PC and Fax to Mac)
Receive a fax manually
When you are on the phone, the person you are speaking with can send you a fax while you are still connected. This is referred to as manual faxing. Use the instructions in this section to receive a manual fax.
NOTE: You can pick up the handset to talk or listen for fax tones.
You can receive faxes manually from a phone that is:
• Directly connected to the device (on the 2-EXT port)
• On the same phone line, but not directly connected to the device
NOTE: The automatic document feeder must be empty to receive a fax. If there are documents in the ADF, then the device will not be able to receive incoming faxes.
To receive a fax manually
1. Make sure the device is turned on and you have paper loaded in the input tray.
2. Remove any originals from the document feeder tray.
NOTE: The automatic document feeder must be empty to receive a fax. If there
are documents in the document feeder, then receiving the fax will be
unsuccessful.
3. Do one of the following to answer a fax manually:
• Set the Rings to Answer setting to a high number to allow you to answer the
incoming call before the device answers.
• Turn off the Auto Answer setting so that the device does not automatically
answer incoming calls.
4. If you are currently on the phone with the sender, instruct the sender to press Start on their fax machine.
5. When you hear fax tones from a sending fax machine, do the following:
a. Press START FAX Black or START FAX Color on the device control panel.
b. When prompted, select Fax Receive.
NOTE: Depending on your country/region, the device might receive the fax
automatically when you hear fax tones from the sending fax machine.
6. After the device begins to receive the fax, you can hang up the phone or remain on the line. The phone line is silent during fax transmission.

Paper in auto feeder face up or down to fax?

Vertical line down all copies coming from the top multipage feeder.


Please provide model number......however, if it's a "copier style" if you open the auto feeder, there should be a large contact glass and then a small "****" glass on the side that is used when using the auto feeder -clean this glass thoroughly (clean both while you're at it). If it's just a regular style fax machine, there will just be a small glass under the cover that needs to be cleaned.

Please let me know :)

Feeding more than one page at a time. How do I fix it?


Open the auto feeder, and inside you will see some rollers, and probably a rubber pad (on the top section ), the rubber pad (or separation pad) is responsible for keeping extra sheets from feeding you can rough this up gently with a little FINE grit sandpaper and/or just clean it with a moistened cloth (and dry) . It will be on a sort of pressure plate to apply pressure downward , you may try to apply a touch more pressure.

I have HP all in one. The feed for fax stopped working. how do I fix it.?


try copying blank pages. If it feeds the paper, then try faxing again. If it does not feed the paper, then open the feeder and clean the rollers and the separator pad. You can use a coffee filter moisten with distilled or bottled water to clean them.

Try copying blank pages again to check if it feeds the paper.

Goodluck!

Fax double feeds sheets


This may occur if:
-the paper is too thick or too thin
-the roller mechanism is not properly aligned or has worn out
-the sheets of paper stick together

things you can try:
-unload the paper in the main tray and bend the stack of paper to loosen it up. Reload the paper to the main tray

Hope this helps!

Fax machine


1)Disconnect the power cord from the rear of the HP Fax machine.
2)Verify that the phone cable is fully inserted into the fax machine. If your model has a removable Line Interface Unit (LIU) where the phone line plugs into, verify that it is securely snapped in place.
3)If the HP Fax model belongs to the HP Officejet R80 Series , verify that the cable which goes from the Automatic Document Feeder assembly to the rear of the HP All-in-One base is connected.
4)Reconnect the power cord.After the fax reinitializes and it is ready, try to send and receive faxes again.
