Cant receive faxes. constant busy signal when dialing in.


Hi Janet
Try using a standard phone to call your Fax Line
Connect a phone to this Line to test for voice
Disconnect Fax Machine from Phone Line
Reset Fax machine
The Fax machine is supposed to respond to the right tones being sent down the voice line
If it is not responding & all else works then check your Fax settings for "Receiving"

How to hook up fax on HP C7280


The C7280 can be used as a stand-alone fax machine. All you need to hook up to the printer is a telephone line. Connect the phone line to the jack marked "1-Line" on the rear panel, below the power supply connector. If you want, you can connect an extension phone to the jack marked "2-Ext". The line connection is for a standard telephone line. Once the line is connected, faxing is pretty much the same as it is on any fax machine. Put your documents face up in the feeder on top, or for a single sheet, face down on the scanner glass. Press the "Fax menu" button on the control panel and you'll be asked for the number. Enter the number from the keypad and then press the "Start fax black" or "Start fax color" color button to send the fax. Other than the phone line, there isn't anything else you need to hook up.

You can download the manual from HP if you need it for reference. It explains how to use the special features of the fax machine, like broadcast faxing, memory dialing, printing fax reports, etc.

BUSY SIGNAL UNABLE TO RECIEVE FAX


You should unplug your fax machine from the phone wire and call your fax number to see if it is still busy. If it is then you have some other device sharing the line that is holding the line busy or a short in a wire. Remove all other devices (computer modem, credit card machine, cable/satellite box, alarm system etc) and check again. If it is still busy you may have to call your phone company to have them diagnose the problem. If the line is cleared start adding each device back to the line and check between each to see if the line busy's up. If it does it may be the device or the wire (the wire may be damaged and shorting the line).

No dial tone when pressing hook fax is returned


The only thing that could stop you from sending a fax or not get a dial tone, would be the connection to the phone line. Make sure the telephone wire is plugged into the line jack (not ext jack) and should go straight to the wall, without splitters or extensions. If you still cannot send a fax, try another wire or jack

I have no dial tone on my fax machine and i cant send or receive faxes


Remove the phone line from the back of the fax and connect a standard phone (not a business PABX or PAX system phone) to the line. Ensure dialtone is available. (Make sure in doing this that you are also testing the cable from the phone socket to the fax). If no dialtone, replace cable or fix line.

Check that the line is connected to the 'line' port on the fax, not the 'phone' port.

If still no dial tone, it may be modem fault (in the fax). Seek specialist attention.

Dual line, one for phone, one for fax but


define stand alone: if u want it to have its own line, you'll need to either set up a seperate line from the phone box to the fax machine (through the phone company) OR get a distinctive ring for the phone (phone rings from the Telephone company can be rung in a variety of ways, not just the standard "two longs"- by varying the rings to the office AND by having the fax machine listen for its distinctive ring and having it answer only that.

hope that helps.

Need to download installation disk


No can do. It's a stand alone fax machine. If it has a printer port, that's only for using the fax machine as a printer. (I don't think it does)

Can a Lexmark X4270 be used as a stand alone copier and fax without being hooked to the computer?


Absolutely! The only thing needed for use as a fax is being plugged into a live phone line. These are specifically designed for just that purpose so the computer does not have to be left running while fax machine and copier remain on in the office. Mainly so the office can shut down the computer when not needed to save power when not needed. Ex. to receive faxes at night when the office is closed. You only need to leave the printer on and it will function as a stand alone copier fax machine. The computer is only required when you want to print a document or scan a page and save it. I hope this fully answers your question.
If you have others feel free to ask.

Sending faxes


You can hook a fax to any standard phone line. That is what they are designed for. The only issue is if you share the fax with your telephone, you will need to set the machine up to receive the fax before you answer the phone.
