    Sent a fax and report came back with result message"error 390" What does that mean? regards Lisa

    Hi Lisa,
    According to the HP manual, this error code is consistent with a communication error. in other words, the machine tried to send your fax, but could not get anywhere.
    I would:
    1. Turn off the printer, then turn it back on. send a test fax to another number, see if it works.
    2. check where your phone line connects to the printer, and make sure the phone line is plugged in to the correct phone jack on the device. If it is, take it out, and put it back in. Test sending a fax again.
    3. If this doesn't work, test your fax line. hook it up to a phone- see if you can hear a dial tone from it. If so, the line is active. If not, you may need to troubleshoot for a phone line problem, which your telephone provider can assist you with.
    4. If the phone line is alright, but the printer still doesn't work- something could be internally wrong with the printer. Call HP for further support, and they will be able to assist you by getting it repaired.

    Fax driver for Lexmark X5070? Where would I find one?

    Hi. The fax driver for most of Lexmark printers are usually found only in the installation cd that came with your printer. Just run the installation cd in your computer and make sure to include the fax software/driver. Good luck!

    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.

    Just wondering on how to set up so u can get faxes from all area codes not just one

    You will automatically receive faxes from anyone with a compatible fax anywhere in the world. You may be confusing receiving as you had to enter your area code in setup to send faxes. That does not keep you from receiving (or sending) anywhere you like.

    Cant fax

    Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
    Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
    Hope this helps. Bud

    How to fax

    First you need to get the fax service activated with your phone company. Make sure that you do not have distinctive ringtones nor voice mail activated on your line, because these features are not compatible with the 5500 printer.

    Once you got that, then you need to:
    - Put what you need to fax on the ADF (automatic document feeder)
    - Press the FAX button on the printer
    - Dial the number (including area code)
    - Press the START button

    And your fax should get going.

    I would like to restrict any color documents being printed on the C300. We have it setup to enter a password for colored copies, but not when you are printing. Can this be restricted?

    You will need to enter the admin mode, User Authenication/Account track & select either user authentication settings or account track settings depending on which you have setup ( you can check this by going into the general settings in user auth/account track ).
    Once in your chosen method select the user/s you wish to restrict and select edit.
    Select output permissions and set colour to restrict and ok.
    Do the same for each person you wish to restrict.
    Once done you will need to go into the 'Print Without Authentication' button and select Restrict.
    When you have done this you will need to add the users information and passwords into the print driver for the C300 for each users pc.
    You do this by going into start, settings, printers, select the C300 & right click, select properties, go into printing preferences & select 'Authentication/Account track', enter the user name & password into the relevent boxes (either account track or user auth depending on what you have setup) and then hit ok & apply.
    Do this for ALL USERS.

    The settings should now be saved permanently and if the user selects colour and they are restricted it will not let them print.

    Hope this helps.
