Try to replace the cable or the printer port. The other step would be trying to replace Your computer's printer port (but it would be better if this would not be needed).

HP All-In-One can send but cannot receive fax or can receive but cannot send


One of the most common problems with HP All-in-One Printers is that they can send out fax but cannot receive or they can receive fax but cannot send. Now, what more could possibly be the problem if you are sure that your connection cables are correct and properly setup? Well, most people don't know that this is more often than not, caused by the ECM feature of the fax.

ECM or Error Correction Mode is used by fax machines during transmission. This feature is used to eliminate transmission problems especially when you have a "dirty" or noisy telephone line or a very poor signal can result to fax failures. ECM mode, when is turned ON is supposed to check for errors and glitches and is supposed to make the reception or transmission of faxes come out successfully.

However, for some reasons, the ECM mode is not supposed to be performing well with its feature. Especially if the user has a problem with the telephone line, the more that they cannot receive or transmit a fax. It is then recommended that your HP All-In-One printer's ECM fax settings be turned OFF. To do this, follow the steps below:

1. On your printers front control panel, press the button with the wrench symbol; this is the Setup button.
2. Press the right > or left < arrow until you see Advanced Fax Setup then press OK.
3. Press the right > or left < arrow until you see Error Correction Mode; again press OK.
4. Press the right > or left < arrow until to select Error Correction Mode OFF. Press OK to confirm.

That's it! You may now try to send out a fax or ask a friend to send you one.

HOW TO EMAIL SCANNED DOCUMENTS FROM HP J4580 DIRECTLY?


It is not possible to email the scanned file directly through the printer. However, you may send fax over the Internet

You may subscribe to a low cost phone service that allows you to send and receive faxes with your device by using the Internet. This method is called Fax over Internet Protocol (FoIP). You probably use a FoIP service (provided by your telephone company) if you:
• Dial a special access code along with the fax number, or
• Have an IP converter box that connects to the Internet and provides analog phone ports for the fax connection.

NOTE: You can only send and receive faxes by connecting a phone cord to the port labeled "1-LINE" on the device. This means that your connection to the Internet must be done either through a converter box (which supplies regular analog phone jacks for fax connections) or your telephone company.

Some Internet faxing services do not work properly when the device is sending and receiving faxes at high speed (33600bps). If you experience problems sending and receiving faxes while using an Internet fax service, use a slower fax speed. You can do this by changing the Fax Speed setting from High (the default) to Medium. For information on changing this setting, see Set the fax speed. If you have questions about internet faxing, contact your internet faxing services
support department.

(Ref from the manual of the printer.)

Hope this helps.
