Hello sir; Make sure you plug in right jack (LINE) not phone, or you may move this unit to your regular phone jack to try it.

I need to connect my fax whit the magicjack


A voice over Internet protocol device, magicJack allows you to make and receive telephone calls from your computer using a USB device. While magicJack does not officially support sending and receiving faxes, you can connect a regular fax machine to the magicJack device to send and receive faxes.
Attach the magicJack device to a USB port on your computer.
Connect the phone wire to the port at the end of the magicJack device.
Connect the other end of the phone wire to the "Input" jack on your fax machine.
Turn off error correction on your fax machine, and set your fax machine to the lowest possible transmission speed. Consult your fax machine's user guide if you do not know how to turn off the error correction or lower the transmission speed on your fax machine.
Send a fax to your magicJack phone number to receive a fax. You can find your magicJack phone number at the top of the magicJack splash screen that will display on your computer after inserting the magicJack device.
Send a fax from your magicJack by loading the fax you want to send into your fax machine and pressing the "Send" button.

How do I fax using a cell phone and bluetooth?


Hi Gail

It's a little challenging as you need to configure a few things between your phone and the fax. These steps are basically one of doing it, but, I would resort to using the old fashion way! :-)

How to Fax Wirelessly Wireless faxing is easier today than it has ever been before. Whether you're faxing wirelessly from a tablet, smartphone, or computer, wireless faxing is pretty much as easy as sending an email.
There are three broad ways to wirelessly send a fax:
  • Use your cellular network
  • Use Wi-Fi
  • Wirelessly connect to a fax machine via Bluetooth or your wireless network
We're going to break down each of these faxing options down below and explain everything you need to know about wireless faxing.
Wirelessly Faxing Over your Cellular Wireless If you're trying to fax from your smartphone or tablet, then you're likely going to be faxing over a cellular connection.
There's only one way to fax over a cellular connection: online faxing.
Online faxing services act as a virtual fax machine. You communicate with this fax machine over the internet. That fax machine receives emails for you and sends them to your inbox. Then, you email the fax machine whenever you want to send a fax to a recipient.
With online faxing, there's really no restriction to the number of wireless devices you can use. As long as your device has an internet connection and the ability to send an email, you'll have no trouble wirelessly faxing over your cellular wireless network.
Aside from online faxing, there are no other ways to wirelessly fax over your cellular wireless network. You can't turn your mobile device into a modem. There's also no smartphone software that transforms your mobile device into a fax machine hardware platform.
Put simply, you can't receive faxes over the same number as your cell phone. It's impossible.
Using Wireless Internet (Wi-Fi) to Send a Fax Using wireless internet (Wi-Fi) to send a fax is as straightforward as sending it over a cellular connection.
The best option is to use online faxing. Online faxing lets you send a fax over Wi-Fi as easy as sending an email.
You sign up for an computer fax provider, then send an email just as you would normally send an email. Here's a quick step by step guide:
Step 1) Pick an online fax provider and sign up
Step 2) Compose a new email over Wi-Fi as you normally would send an email
Step 3) In the recipient section, type the fax number of your recipient followed by the online address of your fax provider, like by typing 1234567@nextiva.com.
Step 4) Add a cover letter to your fax by typing something into the body of the email
Step 5) Click "Send" after you've verified all of the information is complete.
That's it! You've just sent a fax over Wi-Fi using an electronic faxing service. If you're only sending a small number of faxes, then you might not even have to pay for faxing - many providers offer free trials or let you send a small number of faxes for free.
Alternatively, if you don't want to use online faxing, then you may be able to connect to your wireless fax machine over your Wi-Fi network (provided you're both connected to the same home or office network).
Some multi-purpose printers (with scan, copy, fax, and print capabilities) will have wireless connectivity.
Both fax machines and multi-purpose printers will also sometimes have Bluetooth functionality, which means you can connect to those devices outside of your wireless network.
Use a Fax Machine with A Wireless or Cellular Connection Some fax machines can connect to your home's wireless network over Wi-Fi, or they can connect to your computer over Bluetooth.
However, some fax machines go beyond this and connect to a cellular network on their own. These wireless fax machines are physical fax machines that have a dedicated cell phone connection.
These machines also go by names like GSM fax machines or CDMA fax machines, depending on the type of network they use.
If you use a wireless fax machine like this, then your fax machine will have a separate fax number and cellular service account. Faxes are sent and received over the cellular network just as they would be received using a traditional fax machine.
This type of wireless fax machine is ideal for situations where you don't have a phone line but have good cell service. These fax machines require a strong cellular connection, as any static or loss of quality on the connection may prevent the fax from being accurately transmitted.
These are all the ways to send and receive a fax wirelessly!

I have an HP 2510 printer. I cannot use it to fax because once I plug the phone jack into the printer I get a busy signal. If I plug the jack into a phone, it works fine. How do I get the printer to...


Hi irwinbadin,

HP fax products are designed so that other telephone equipment can be connected on the same line as the fax. The unit must be connected first using a two-conductor fax/phone cable like the one that shipped with the HP product. Using a four-conductor telephone cable may cause problems receiving faxes or calls.

There are two different types of phone cables. There are two-conductor phone cables like what originally shipped with the HP fax product and there are four-conductor cables. HP fax products are designed to work with a two-conductor phone cable. Look at the end of the cable and verify that it has only two copper leads or wires. Replace any four-conductor cables with a two-conductor cable. Only two-conductor phone cables should be used to connect the all-in-one to the phone line.

Figure 1: The difference between a two-conductor phone cable and a four-conductor phone cable
reyjoshua07_5.jpg


Step one: Connect the phone line to the fax
The fax will have two or three sockets (or jacks) for phone lines. Some of these may have a removable plastic plug in them. These sockets will be labeled with text, To Wall Jack , or with a graphic of the wall jack. See Figure 1 below.

Plug the two-conductor telephone cable that came with the HP product into the telephone wall jack. Then, plug it into this socket as shown below.

reyjoshua07_6.jpg


In areas with above ground telephone lines and electrical storms (lightning), it is a good idea to purchase a telephone line surge suppressor and connect it between the telephone wall jack and the fax. This will help prevent damage to the fax from a lightning-caused power surge on the phone line.

Step two: Add other phone-line devices
To connect other telephone devices, use the other socket (or sockets) on the fax. These are identified by text or with a graphic of a telephone and/or computer.

Connect a caller ID unit between the fax and the telephone.
Use the information below that matches the devices you need to connect.

Fax and telephone
Connect a single-line telephone to one of the added sockets on the fax. The telephone will share the same phone line as the fax. See the illustration below.

reyjoshua07_7.jpg


Fax, answering machine, and telephone
When a telephone answering machine and telephone are connected, connect the answering machine to the fax and then connect the telephone to the answering machine as shown below.

reyjoshua07_8.jpg


Fax and computer modem
To use a fax and a computer modem on the same phone line, connect the fax to the computer modem. The modem socket on the computer may be labeled Line or Wall jack .

reyjoshua07_9.jpg


Fax, computer modem, and telephone
To use a computer modem and a telephone with the fax, connect the computer modem to the fax. Then, connect the telephone into the second phone line connector on the computer modem or the third fax socket (if it is available). The image below shows how to connect a computer and a telephone to a fax with two sockets.

reyjoshua07_10.jpg


Fax, modem, answering machine, and telephone
The image below shows how to connect a computer modem, answering machine, and telephone to a fax. Connect the computer modem to the fax, then connect the answering machine to the computer, and finally, connect the telephone to the answering machine.
If the fax has three phone line sockets instead of two, some of the devices can be connected to the other phone socket on the fax.

HOW TO EMAIL SCANNED DOCUMENTS FROM HP J4580 DIRECTLY?


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.

I have a fax number but dont know how to connect


Do you have separate phone lines for fax and phone?
If so, connect it to the fax socket (like the telephone socket) on the wall.
Use the menu button to setup the date, time, your fax number etc.Faxes can be sent even if you don't do this, but the details printed on the receivers copy will show wrong date, wrong time and wrong fax number

If you have only one line for phone and fax, you may have to select the one of the options preferably phone/fax, connect it to the wall socket as you would connect a telephone
  • Phone only
  • fax only
  • fax/phone
Read your manual for for other fax report and so on.

You should be refering to the PC Fax utility. De-install all the drivers from your PC and re-install the drivers with the CD provided. Run the CD without connecting the USB cable, only connect the USB cable when prompted.

IT WILL RING BUT GOES TO ANSWERING MACHINE DOES NOT RECEIVE FAX


>first run fax test, press set up go to tools menu then select run fax test,all entries should be pass
>then check your connections, do you have one line or number for your fax and phone?or a separate line or another number for fax and another number for phone?
>let me assume you only have one number for fax and phone..
>check connections, this should be downstream connection, the fax machine using the black phone cord provided by hp should be connected directly to the phone jack using line 1 at the back of the fax and the answering machine or the telephone should be connected to ext 2 or line 2 at the back of the fax...there should be no other devices phone or answering machine connected directly to the phone jack.
>next set rings to answer on the fax machine higher than the answering machine...if your rings to answer on answering machine is 4 rings, set the fax to 6 rings...if it is a voice call the answering machine will pick it up at 4 rings then if it detects that it it a fax tone then it will transfer the call to fax.
>also check if auto answer is on in your fax
>you can check auto answer and rings to answer by pressing set up or menu button on your machine look for it in basic fax settings or advance settings
>also check if your voice prompt for your answering machine is not too short there should be like at least 5 seconds after cutting your message to allow the machine to transfer the call to the fax if it is a fax tone.
