    My HP M1522nf locks up. Sometimes I get the Error 79, most of the time it just locks.

    Turning off and on works sometimes to get one document to print or one fax out, but not much more than that.

Hello KIM !

Try doing an NvRam (Hard reset)
1. Turn off the product.
2. Press and hold both the down arrow button and the Cancel button, and then turn on the product.
3. Wait until the message Permanent storage init. appears, and then release the buttons.

I can not send and receive faxes and on it writes ,,eror 79" thanks, Sanja

79 Error Turn off then on

The product has experienced an internal firmware error.

Turn off the power by using the power switch, wait at least 30 seconds, and then turn on the power and wait for the product to initialize.
If a surge protector is being used, remove it.
Plug the product directly into the wall socket.
Use the power switch to turn the product on.
If the error persists, contact HP.
See or the support flyer that came in the product box.

Will the machine saying 101000 memory error message make you not receive the faxes that are trying to come in.?

This error is a bad chip on the toner cartridge. Replace your cartridge and your printer should be fine again.

Not receiving any Fax, only can send out Fax.

Hi Mechanic.

The problem could be with your phone service if you are on digital lines, you would have to install a digital to analog filter. If you are analog the comm errors are typical of a line with a lot of static. You can change two settings on the printer which should solve the issue until you install a filter.

The two settings which are under the fax set up menu/ all faxes\
Error correction mode (ECM) set it to off
Fax Speed set it to medium.

Good luck

Hi Vikas,

The easiest way to solve this issue is to do an nvram.

Turn the printer off, hold down the down arrow and cancel button, turn the printer on while still holding and wait for the permanent storage init message to be displayed. Let go of the buttons and you should be good to go, reconfigure the device.
