Assuming that that the machine has a live telephone line plugged in and that it is functioning properly, then you can place your document either face down on the glass or face-up on the feeder (if multi-page). Simply use the numerical keypad on the printer to dial the fax number you wish to send to (don't forget a 1 if long distance) and then press the [Black] button under the START FAX heading. That's it.

You can also send through the software (fax from Word, etc.) by going to File --> Print and choosing the HP Photosmart C6100 Series Fax from the list of printers... but printing a hard copy may be the simplest way for you.

Hello all I have a hp 4315v all in one printer /fax and i would like to see if the fax is working is there a test number i can use to test it out with


Hi,

HP has a Fax no. to test.

Send any test page as fax on the 1-888-473-2963 and wait till it is send. Once the fax is sent, you will receive a fax as notification ( confirmation ) of the fax being received by HP.

This above no. sometimes is busy so you may need to give couple of tries till you succeed.

Or the best way is to send fax to any of your friend who owns a fax machine and ask them to send fax back to you.

Regards,
Ron

Incoming fax


Can you ask a friend who as a fax machine to fax you something? That would probably do it. If you don't know anyone with a fax machine, do you have a fax machine at work? Send a fax from work to your home fax machine and then check your home machine after work.

Is the phone line for the fax dedicated? an answering machine? it would need to be plugged into the fax machine. Set the number of rings very low,

If you have another phone line, call the fax & see what it does, alternatively, have a friend call with a fax machine & monitor the progress.

1. In order to use it, or any other fax machine, you need to have a land line phone.
2. Some printers don't have a built in fax, but rely on the computers internal fax modem and software on the computer to send a fax. But then your computer will still need to be attached to a landline phone.

  • Send and receive paper faxes.
  • Send and receive color faxes. Color faxes can be sent only to color fax capable machines. If a color fax is sent to a black-and-white only fax machine, the HP Officejet sends the fax in black and white.
