I want to know how i can use my copy machine to a fax so i can use it for incoming or outgoing?

Install software
Make sure all cables plugged: phone cable, USB cable to computer

Send fax from computer:
- print your document to printer HP .... FAX

Send "traditional" fax:
- put your document into scanner input
- type phone number on HP Officejet keyboard

If your HP Officejet if connected to phone line, it reseiving faxes automatically.

Hope this helps

I have an all in one and I can print, scan, and

On the printer press setup-->choose tools option-->under tools-->choose print a fax test page.

Find out how is the printer connected with the fax line.

Note:- Line 1 at the back of the printer should be connected directly to the wall jack of phone line.

Now Follow the instrcution below.
  1. Send a one page black and white text fax to 1-888-hpfaxme (1-888-473-2963).
  2. When your fax is received by the HP Test Fax Service, They will generate a return fax to you within five minutes confirming that they have received your fax. This verifies that you can both send and receive a fax with your fax machine.
If you do not receive a return fax within 5-7 minutes, there may be a problem with the setup of your fax machine. Note:-The most common cause of failure is that the fax number set in the Fax Header on the machine does not match the number of the phone line connected to the fax. Also, ensure that the fax header contains the full 10-digit telephone number of the fax machine, including the area code.

Able to send faxes but unable to receive.

you need to check how the fax machine is setup for receiving faxes. i recommend you try it first without the answering machine, to see if it works. if it doesnt, then it has to do with the auto answer or the number of rings not set right, if it does work, it could be that you need to set it to check for fax while the answering machine is answering, check the manual under answering faxes.
thanks adi

Brand new fax when we send a fax it is received at the other end fuzzy or blurry. Tried a different phone line and still the same. Cleaned glass on scanner

Slight possibility that your sending in Photo Mode, most likely the machine was damaged during shipping and the CCD unit or scanner is out of alignment. Just make a copy....if it comes out blurry then it is the scanner. I would return it for another machine. If the copy comes out nice and clear then there is nothing wrong with the scanner.

Fax machines are sorta like printers, sorta like scanners, and sorta like dial up modems all wrapped into one expensive box.
1. First thing to make sure of is that you are hooked to a phone line. most fax machines have a phone handset that you can make calls from. Call someone and make sure that works. If So, you are able to connect to phone networks, and should have no trouble sending or receiving data. If you have a dead line or no sound, check the line and check the power. (its always the easy stuff that is overlooked, just check it and make sure).
2. If this fax machine has computer interface, (usb port or parallel cable port), see if you can scan with it. Drop a document into the scan area and see if the computer can scan an image from the scanner. If the scanner works, you can scan images into the fax machine to be sent to the fax number. (If your fax machine does not have a scan to computer feature, skip this.)
3. if your fax machine has a print from pc feature, try to print a document to it from your computer. If you can print, then the printer works, and you can receive faxes. (if your fax machine does not have a pc printing feature, skip this)
4. Here is how a typical fax machine works. You place the document or image into the scanner feed area. You press a big button that usually says "fax" and then, a screen pops up saying to dial the number. You dial the number and press SEND. once you press Send, the machine will scan the document, dial the number and sing a little dial up modem song awaiting a response from the receiving machine. the receiving machine acknowledges the fax, and the singing is no longer audible (but it continues because the modem song is actually data transmission/reception). after about 20-60 seconds, the fax completes and the call ends. As for the particular model you have, the functions should be about the same, though the buttons and arrangements may be different. FYI, you can send a fax straight from the PC too, if you have a dial-up fax/modem card.

I cannot receive the faxes. everything else works

It could be a number of things. Could be a phone line issue.

I have seen this with alot of HP style fax machines. It may be to low end to receive from some of the higher end fax machines.

I get "No Answer" when sending and receiving a fax

Check to make sure the company phone is not setup in the fax machine. If it is, it will need your number to receive. Not all fax machines have this type setup but its worth checking.
I'd go though the complete setup at your number.
Hope this helps. Bud
