Without a dial-up line available for your fax machine, the only other way to fax is via the internet if it's supported by your MFP. Google online faxing or fax via internet for solutions you may be able to use in your situation.

HISTORY
Fax or facsimile was invented as a way to take a printed document, scan it into digital form and transmit it to it's destination in a matter of seconds -vs- sending it via an expensive courier taking hours or days. This is before the internet, Adobe and other players made a way to create and send documents via the internet without the need for a fax machine and dedicated phone line. While faxes may still be sent that way when the printed document is the only media available, faxing has died off considerably. Most large companies now have ways implemented to move documents digitally without the need to fax. I predict the fax portion of a MFP to disappear in the not too distant future. Earlier MFP's didn't include a fax feature and one had to but the next model up to get it, now it's included in nearly every MFP. Adobe's PDF format with the ability to fill in the forms fields electronically (as in your US taxes) without having to have expensive office software made printing and faxing a thing of the past. Don't be surprised if the business or other entity requests you, and all of us, to submit a PDF document to their business email address rather than a fax.

Good luck with your quest!

You can start by making sure that the photocopy is working, this is to ensure that the scanner is working. Next, try to isolate the issue if this is only happening to only one fax number? If all of these have negative results, I suggest for a hardware reset. Follow the steps for reset found here, How to Reset the HP LaserJet Pro M1536dnf Multifunction Printer. Goodluck :)

We have a HP colour laser jet CM2320nf MFP and when we try and send a fax it comes up with error report Comm Error 345. Please explain


Check phone line. use a normal phone and plug into the same phone wall socket that the MFP is using, do we have a dial tone? Do we have a noisy line, any buzz or crackel will cause issues

If there is no dial tone ring line supplier, If it is noisy line do the same

Also check phone line is plug into "line" socket in the back of machine not "ext'

Also check no prefix is required to dial out, unit needs its own phone line..

Also try using resolution of fax as standard not fine, this requires less info to go threw the line

In Australia we have a thing called folds (fax online diag service), basicly it is a fax number you ring and the phone company who own the line send back a report, most times the issue is noisy line or no line available

hope this helps

Cheers
