Question about Dell A940 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

The Fax software on my a940 seems to be gone

I follow all the instructions step-by-step yet when I choose the option to fax from the All-In-One scanning page it will only print. Same thing happens when I manually use the Ffax button on the scanner itself. I have Windows Vista 32 bit Home version

Dell printer A940 fax trouble


Unless you have 'VOIP' telephone service with Comcast, your FAX will connect through your home's telephone line, not the internet (or modem). You would connect your phone line to the all-in-one printer, then follow Dell's instructions for use. Good luck!
