While its possible, I doubt your doing it wrong...

  • Select [FAX], place the paper as indicated on the tray, type the number, and hit send. That's about it.
However, Fax machines will not send when attached to a digital phone network, used over IP phones, or in conjunction with DSL service without the lines being conditioned. This is a small device which hides the higher frequency noise from the fax machine. Any sort of signal shared on the lines may interfere with sending, recieving, or both. If you use DSL for example, I'd almost guarentee this is part of your problem.

Lost my manual and don't know how to send a fax. Not sure which tray the document goes in. Can you help?

Directly from HP's manual on this printer:

Send a basic fax

You can easily send a single- or multiple-page black-and-white fax by using the

control panel, as described here. If you want to send a color or photo fax, see the

onscreen HP Image Zone Help.

Note If you need printed confirmation that your faxes were successfully sent,

enable fax confirmation before sending any faxes. For more information, see

Print fax confirmation reports.

Tip You can also send a fax manually from a phone or by using monitor

dialing. These features allow you to control the pace of your dialing. They are

also useful when you want to use a calling card to charge the call and you

need to respond to tone prompts while dialing. For more information, see Send

a fax manually from a phone or Send a fax using monitor dialing.

1. Load your originals, with the print side up, into the document feeder tray. If you

are sending a single-page fax, such as a photograph, you can also load your

original on the glass.

Note If you are sending a multiple-page fax, you must load the originals

in the document feeder tray. You cannot fax a multiple-page document

from the glass.

2. Press Fax.


For more assistance with this printer, you can go to and download the owner's manual. It is in PDF form, so you will need adobe reeader which you can get for FREE at

In order to find the solution to this issue, you need the fax number for another fax machine that is operating correctly with which to send and receive faxes. After trying each of the following solutions, try to send or receive a fax from this other fax machine to test if the issue has been resolved with your HP fax product. The other fax can be in the same building, on another telephone line, or at another location with someone who can assist. It can also be helpful to call the person or company that is sending the fax. That party can offer information about how that fax machine behaves when sending a fax. This information can be valuable in determining the nature of the issue.
There are several possible solutions to this issue. Start with the first solution and then continue with the other solutions in the order presented until the issue is resolved. When the issue is resolved, there is no need to continue troubleshooting.
Solution one: Run a fax diagnostic test
Run a fax diagnostic test to make sure that the HP fax product is set up correctly.
Load letter or A4 unused plain white paper into the input tray.
on the product control panel, press the setup button ( ).
Use the down arrow key ( ) to select Tools and then press the OK button ( ).
on the Tools menu, use the down arrow key ( ) to select Run Fax Test and then press the OK button ( ).
Review the results of the test.
If the result of the fax diagnostic test is All Pass ,
Reinitialize the fax
1. With the HP fax product turned on, disconnect the power cord from the back of the HP fax product and from the electrical outlet.
2. Connect one end of the telephone cord to the telephone jack and then connect the other end of the cord to the port labeled 1-Line on the back of the HP fax product.
3. Reconnect the power cord to the back of the HP fax product and then reconnect the power cord to the electrical outlet.
4. After the HP fax product reaches a ready state, try to send and receive a fax again.

If this works GREAT!, if not let me know....JCE

I'm trying to scan in a document and then fax it using HP Photosm

Unlike most scanners, you must put the page that you want to copy in lower right corner of the glass (notice the small arrow pointing to the corner). This should fix any problem with an image being cut off. As far as faxing, I don't think the C3180 is able to fax pages. Hope this helps
