Question about HP Officejet Pro L7780 All-In-One InkJet Printer
We have an HP L7780 all-in-one. Recently it has been having trouble receiving faxes. Sending hasn't been a problem. It is not connected to a dedicated fax line. It is connected with a network cable and we use a Cisco ATA 186 analog telephone adapter. We have rec'd the error code 232 a couple of times. I have powered down the L7780 and the ATA 186 and then we can receive faxes. I downloaded the latest updates for the L7780 and still happening. I have a feeling it is the ATA 186, but see others have had the error code 232. What exactly does that error code mean?
Hate to say it, but it means "Don't buy HP printers". You'll be a whole lot happier with Canon or Epson. I had no end of trouble with more than HP all-in-one. They just get flaky after awhile, and the software (particularly scanning) is terrible.

More investigation implies that faxing over VoIP, as I am doing, requires setting the fax BAUD rate to 9600 bps or slower. So does anyone know if it is possible to set the BAUD rate on the Dell MFP 1600n multifunction printers?

SOURCE: Error 232 receiving fax
fax error 232 indicates a communication failure between the sending and receiving units. I'd check for line noise on the phone (you can hear it as cracks and pops) If your fax line is not dedicated, any noise from another phone pickup or an answwering machine can cause the failure.

basically error 232 indicates that a communication failure has occurred between the two machines
Following these steps may help resolving your issue
1. Make sure that the phone cord is plugged directly from the wall jack into the back port of the fax machine that is marked "Line" or "To Wall Jack", or that has a wall-jack symbol.
2. Verify that the line interface unit (LIU) (the box that the phone cord plugs into) is seated fully into the back of the fax.
3. Remove any other device from the line such as splitters, credit card machines, or telephone answering machines, and retry the fax communication.
4. Try sending and receiving faxes on a different fax line.
5.Try using a different telephone cord.
6. Have the phone company test your line for static or noise problems.
7. Disable Error Correction Mode (ECM) if the same error occurs repeatedly.
Hope this helps.
