    My HP C7230 all in one machine can fax out when I work from the machine. It tests correctly using the HP Solution Center on my Vista system. But when I fax using that application, it quickly responds FAX FAILED.

    Same exact issue. I think it has something to do with it running on a wireless network - but not sure.

To resolve the issue, use the following steps.
Step one: Remove the cartridges
Make sure that the product is turned on and then disconnect the USB cable from the back of the product.
Open the product cover and remove the cartridges.
Close the cover and wait for a message to insert the cartridges to appear on the control panel display.
Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product.
Disconnect the power cord from the wall outlet and wait for one minute.
Step two: Reinstall the cartridges
Reconnect the power cord to the wall, reconnect the other end of the power cord to the product, and then turn on the product if it is not already on.
Open the product cover and reinstall the cartridges.
Close the cover and print a calibration page, if prompted.
Print a self test report to make sure that the product can print.
Reconnect the USB cable between the product and the computer.
Try to print a document from an application on the computer.
If the issue has not been resolved, contact HP to review these troubleshooting steps and evaluate if the product needs to be serviced.

I, too, used the same solution of holding down "OK" "CXL" and "BLACK COLOR" at the same time. Printer will restart itself and everything is a-ok!

You probably need to uninstall and re-install the Latest Drivers for your printer

To uninstall you can do it from the Software disk you recieved with printer.
Insert the Disk in CD ROM and Click uninstall from HP Printer Menu

OR If you dont have the disk, you need to manually uninstall the Software
( Disconnect the USB cord before uninstalling )

Click START - Open Control panel - Add/remove Programs ( XP ) / Or Programs and FEatures ( Vista/Win 7 )
you will find list of HP Programs installed..

Choose one by one and uninstall these programs
1. HP Customer participation program
2. HP Imaging Device and software
3. Software and drivers for Photosmart 3200
4. HP Solution Center or HP Director
5. HP Image Zone ( or Image Zone Express / HP Photosmart Essential )
6. HP Update
7. HP Printer Drivers/Diagnostic Drivers
( after every Uninstall you will be prompted to restart the PC, you will find an option [ Click here to restart later ]. click on it and restart the PC once you completed uninstalling all the above programs )

Once you have uninstalled - click on this link to download the latest drivers by choosing your operating system
