Use a 4-wire telephone-cable to connect the telephone-port on the unit to a live telephone-jack in the wall.

Use your cell-phone to "dial" the telephone-number associated with that telephone-jack. Listen on your cell-phone for the unit to "ring" and for it to "answer" the telephone-call. If it does not answer, check the configuration on the ALL-IN-ONE.

FAX will not send nor receive.

You could try this if you have a normal computer scanner or the document is a file on your computer before being printed. Sounds like your fax machine is simply broken.

Think there's something wrong with your settings.
Actually, if you want problems like this to get lost, just use an Internet fax. There's a plenty of services - Popfax.com for example. They make all the work for you and you just have to send and receive faxes, no headackes with settings)

I've been trying to send a fax to an office in Sri Lanka for several days now, but it won't go. We are getting a Comm Error 388 in the fax error report. The unusual thing is we are able to send fax...


inernational fax calls quite often do not work on digitized phone lines or via satellite. You cannot fix that. maybe your fax has a "fallback 4800 bps" setting that might be helpful.

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.

Seems I can send faxes but have problems with receiving.


That's a driver problem. Uninstall the driver first before reinstalling it.

Cannot send or receive faxes.


Try a phone hand set on the wall jack to make sure you can get a dial tone and the line is alive.
Then plug the fax phone line into that wall jack. Make sure the phone line is also in the right port on the back of the Officejet printer, where it most likely says LINE -IN and NOT where it shows an image of a phone set.
