I cant send a fax or reseave one


Sir/Madam

Solution one: Check the fax connections Use the following steps to check the physical connections, and then use the HP Fax Test Service.

Step one: Check the physical connections

  1. Disconnect the telephone cord from the HP fax product, and then examine the connector on the end of the cord. Make sure that the cord has only two wires. Figure 1: Two-wire telephone cord

  1. Four-wire telephone cordGraphic: Four-wire telephone cordIf the cord has four wires, replace it with a two-wire phone cord.
    If you must use a cord with four wires, use the converter that shipped with product. The converter allows a cord with four wires to work with a device that requires a cord with two wires.
  2. Connect one end of the telephone cord to the telephone jack, and then connect the other end of the cord to the port labeled 1-Line on the back of the HP fax product.

If other devices need to use the same telephone jack, make sure that they are connected to the 2-Ext port on the back of the HP fax product.

    4 - Optional telephone
    5 - Answering machine
    6 - Two-wire telephone cord to 1-Line
  2. Pick up the telephone receiver and listen for a dial tone. Make sure that you can dial out using the telephone keypad.
    If there is a dial tone and you can dial out using the telephone, the HP fax product is connected correctly to a working telephone cord and telephone jack. If there is no dial tone, check the configuration again and make sure that it is set up correctly.If You Still Having Hp Printer Problem Then Visit Official HP Printer Website On Below Link URL http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&docname=c02263145

I am using one line for both my telephone and fax machine. Need to know how to set fax up manually.


If you are using a printer with fax: connect the ethernet cable of the phone to the phone 1(phone) socket of the the printer. The other ethernet socket in the printer is for the line connection.

Just make sure that your printer is plugged into the wifi router in a normal ethernet port... then you should be able to find the printer in the printer dialog box..

C5180 all in one is not connecting via ethernet.


Before you begin: Check requirements Make sure you have the following items:
  • One of the following types of wired access points or routers: Ethernet router, switch, hub, or wireless router with Ethernet ports
  • A computer that connects to the wired access point or router
  • A Category 5 Ethernet cable to use for the HP product. (Do not use a standard telephone cable.) Figure 2: Cable comparisonc01710115.gif 1 - Ethernet cable 2 - Telephone cable (do not use) Although an Ethernet cable looks similar to standard telephone cable, each has a different plug and a different number of wires. The plug on an Ethernet cable (also called an RJ-45 connector) is wide, thick, and always has eight wires. The plug on a telephone cable is narrower and has between two and six wires.
Are you changing from USB connection to Ethernet connection?If you previously installed the software for a USB connection and now want to change to an Ethernet connection, follow these instructions to remove the USB installation before continuing.
  1. Click Start , click Printers and Faxes , and then right-click the icon for HP product.
  2. Click Delete to remove the product.
  3. Disconnect the USB cable from the product and the computer.
Step one: Connect the HP All-in-One to the network
  1. Remove any plug or protective cover from the Ethernet port on the back of the product. Figure 3: Remove plugc01710117.gif
  2. Connect the Ethernet cable to the Ethernet port on the product, and then connect the other end of the cable to an available port on the wired access point or router. Figure 4: Connect the Ethernet cablec01710118.gif
  3. Connect the power cord to the product, and then plug it into an electrical outlet.
  4. Turn the product on.
Step two: Decide whether to install with the product CD or download the software Don’t worry if you don’t have the product CD! You can download the most current software available for your product from the HP Web site at no cost. The following information might help you decide which installation method to use:
CD Download For a new product: CD installation is a quick and easy method. If you do not have a CD, you can download the software you need. For an older product: CD installation might not work if you are installing the product on a computer running a newer operating system that released AFTER the HP product released. Downloading the software provides the best results for your older product. Even though it takes more time than using the CD, downloading the latest software can help you avoid installation issues.

Downloading is the recommended method if your computer operating system released after the HP product released. About the software: The software on the CD is current to the date of the product release. The software that you can download from the HP Web site is the most current software available for your product. HP often updates software and drivers AFTER the product and CD release to the market.Step three: Install the software

NO SETUP INSTRUCTIONS SUPPLIED WITH MACHINE. PLEASE SUPPLY


1. well its quite simple. all you to do is to connect the USB cable to the computer from the Printer (the printer also has a port for the USB)

2. then connect the main telephone line into the port labelled "LINE" behind the printer.

3. then you connect one end of the extra telephone cable supplied to the port labelled "EXT" behind the printer and the other end to the regular port on the telephone.

4. plug - in the power cable and put on the printer.

5. then you put the CD into the computer and run the set-up from the CD which is fairly easy.

6. after a few minutes you should have your printer running.

Ethernet connection


Hello Becky

There could be a security feature on the printer that requires that you enable the Ethernet port at the printer's control panel 1st. I've seen this w/ printers and All-In-Ones that have a wireless-capable.

HERE is a link to HP's info, downloads, FAQs, etc on this printer.

Depending upon your LAN configuration (on the router), you may need to at least change the subnet mask on the printer if not assign it a static IP so it doesn't conflict w/ any other devices on your LAN using DHCP. (1st, of course, you'll need to get the Ethernet port enabled on the printer)

HERE's the User Guide for your printer. Go to page 29 to find the network configuration instructions.


Please, let us know if this response was helpful for your or, of course, if you have more questions, etc on this topic.

Thank you
BJ
