I cant send a fax or reseave one


Sir/Madam

Solution one: Check the fax connections Use the following steps to check the physical connections, and then use the HP Fax Test Service.

Step one: Check the physical connections

  1. Disconnect the telephone cord from the HP fax product, and then examine the connector on the end of the cord. Make sure that the cord has only two wires. Figure 1: Two-wire telephone cord

fe080726-3749-4408-9bf4-fb54019e59a9.gif
  1. Four-wire telephone cordGraphic: Four-wire telephone cordIf the cord has four wires, replace it with a two-wire phone cord.
    If you must use a cord with four wires, use the converter that shipped with product. The converter allows a cord with four wires to work with a device that requires a cord with two wires.
  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.

If other devices need to use the same telephone jack, make sure that they are connected to the 2-Ext port on the back of the HP fax product.

    5 - Answering machine
    6 - Two-wire telephone cord to 1-Line
  2. Pick up the telephone receiver and listen for a dial tone. Make sure that you can dial out using the telephone keypad.
    If there is a dial tone and you can dial out using the telephone, the HP fax product is connected correctly to a working telephone cord and telephone jack. If there is no dial tone, check the configuration again and make sure that it is set up correctly.If You Still Having Hp Printer Problem Then Visit Official HP Printer Website On Below Link URL http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&docname=c02263145

Hp deskjet 3650 printer works very slowly with win 7


tion one: Check the power supply Follow these steps to check the power supply to make sure that it is functioning correctly.
  1. Turn the product so that you can access the rear side.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the back of the product. Figure 1: Unplug the power cord from the back of the product
  3. Remove any devices between the product and the power outlet, such as surge suppressors or power strips.
  4. Plug the power cord directly into a wall outlet.
  5. Print and time a self-test again.
  • If the test page prints in 30 seconds or less , the problem relates to the power supply. Replace devices between the product and the power outlet, or leave the product connected directly to the wall outlet.
  • If the test page takes significantly longer than 30 seconds to print, continue to the next solution in this document.
Solution two: Check the USB connection
  1. Disconnect the USB cable from the back of the HP product. Figure 2: Disconnect the USB cable from the back of the HP product
  2. Disconnect the USB cable from the back of the computer.
  3. Wait five seconds.
  4. Reconnect the USB cable to the back of the product and the computer, according to the following guidelines: The icon on the USB cable (c01424575.gif ) faces up when the cable connects to the product correctly. Connect the small end of the USB cable to the back of the product Connect the other end of the USB cable to the computer
  5. After you make sure that the USB cable connects correctly and securely, review the following guidelines to check other potential USB-related problems:
    • USB ports on the keyboard. USB ports on the keyboard and in the front of some computers might not be powerful enough to support the product. If the USB cable connects to the USB port on the keyboard, try connecting it to another available USB port on the computer.
    • USB cable length. HP supports USB cables less than 5 m (16 feet, 5 inches) long. However, a USB cable that is 5 m (16 feet 5 inches) long must be of high-quality. Otherwise, HP recommends using a USB cable that is less than 2 m (6 feet, 6 inches). Do not use patch cables to increase the length of an existing cable. Use a powered USB hub if you need more length.
    • Alternate USB ports. Connect the USB cable to another port on the computer to make sure that the USB port on the computer is not the problem.
    • Defective USB cable. Replace the USB cable to make sure that the existing cable is not defective.
    • Conflicting USB ports. Disconnect any other USB printers, USB scanners, USB cameras, and any other USB connected peripherals. Start reconnecting these devices one at a time to determine if one of the devices is using too much power. Consider purchasing and installing a powered USB hub if necessary. NOTE: A USB-powered hub is a device that increases the number of available USB ports on a computer and facilitates communication between the USB devices and the computer. A powered USB hub can resolve communication failures between some, but not all, USB chipsets and HP products.
  6. After checking the USB connection, print and time a self-test page again.
  • If the test page prints in 30 seconds or less , the problem relates to the USB connection. Replace the USB cable or modify the connection to meet the preceding criteria.
  • If the test page takes significantly longer than 30 seconds to print, continue to the next solution in this document.
Solution three: Check cartridge compatibility Incompatible cartridges can cause the slow printing problem. To check the cartridge compatibility for your product, go to HP SureSupply . To identify your cartridge in a language other than English, click the language link near the globe icon (c01906983.gif ) in the upper right corner of your browser. Examine the cartridges in your HP product, and then follow these steps to check which cartridges are compatible with your product. The number on the cartridge label must match the numbers listed on HP SureSupply.
  • If the cartridges are not compatible with your HP product , replace the cartridges. You can order replacement cartridges directly from HP SureSupply.
  • If the cartridges are compatible with your HP product , continue to the next solution in this document.
Solution four: Perform a reset A reset drains the power from the product and returns it to the same settings after restarting.
  1. Press the Power button (c01602202.gif ) to turn off the product.
  2. Unplug the power cord from the back of the product. Figure 3:
  3. Disconnect the data cable (USB or Ethernet, depending on how your product is set up) from the back of the product. USB cable Ethernet cable
  4. Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. Figure 4: Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet
  5. Wait about 30 seconds.
  6. Reconnect the power cord to the product and wall outlet, and then turn on the product.
  7. Print and time a self-test again.
  • If these steps resolved the issue , you do not need to continue troubleshooting.
  • If the issue persists , continue to the next solution.
