Whenever i send a fax, the machine confirms by viewing 'TRANSMITTING OK' but the addressee receives a blank document

Check the baud rate of your transmissions. Slow them down to the slowest setting and send a test fax to a helpful person. Slowly increase the baud rate (communication data speed) and send the fax test. When the fax doesn't show up on the receive site, then step one baud rate speed back, and save the setting.

It could also be your fax that is faulty, or even the receive sites fax, also being faulty.

To test your copy-head, insert a document into your loading section of the fax and press copy. If the copy prints out fine, then you know the head is reading correctly.

It is also possible that the receiver fax (the other end) has a printhead failure.

Hi there, someone has sent us hundreds of faxes that have crashed our fax machine. Is there a way to clear the "receiving" que and block incoming faxes from that sender. We cannot send or...

Hello Ihall,
Wow, That sux , and I mean it.Fax "spam" is difficult to deal with, and has been an increasing problem.Typically tho, its just an AMWAY fax or a free trip to Panama, discount tanning bed etc... . This is a fax bomb and someone is actually breaking federal law BIG TIME. They have (for whatever reason) dedicated significant resources on their end to do this. There are major hurdles and differences between NETWORK traffic, where you can select the IP addresses that you wish to allow or exclude, and phone traffic.It's just like if someone decided to hit redial aimed at your personal phone.Fax traffic cannot really be tracked at the end user level other that running an activity report, establishing that a specific number is harassing you and calling the phone company or whomever provides your phone service.Then you have to file a complaint thru this provider who will contact the FCC.The copier/ fax only knows to accept the incoming call. Lets look at it this way.If it was your home phone you could pay for services that could block a certain phone number perhaps but I bet your fax line does not have caller ID, call block, etc.If I were you I would disconnect the phone line from the copier briefly. Then locate the system monitor block at the bottom of your display and press it. Locate the fax tab at the top and press it.Select print list and it will tell you all the activity both incoming and outgoing, with phone numbers ,times etc. Determine the number that is wearing you out and call your phone provider.They won't think this is funny especially as you will have a report that lists all the activity. Again this is a federal crime and they will actually send Marshall's to the location, rip out their communication **** and possibly arrest them on the spot.I hope I have made sense here as I am livid that someone would do this. Now since you have already indicated that you know how to delete these faxes, and it has taken you hours, You should ACTUALLY be able to highlight as many "**** faxes" as you wish as you go down the screen, and just check them off and at the end say "delete". I guess my bottom line is, No the device does not have the capability on its own to differentiate phone numbers. You need to get law enforcement involved. And you should be able to get rid of those faxes in mass. This is truly jeopardizing your device and your business as it is tieing up memory and processing capabilities and can bring the device to a screeching halt. I hope I have helped you, I am sure that the fundamentals I have explained are accurate. I wish you the best. If I helped you, please let "FIXYA" know. Good luck. I hope they cook the turd, I have been thru similar ****. Spinal

When incoming fax is coming, mfax machine answers but then says fax not detected on screen. I have tried manually receiving the fax as well and this does not work either.

This can be caused by the incoming call not actually being a fax machine at the other end... like someone has dialled the wrong number.

If you are really certain that the incoming call is actually a fax, then check that you have the phone line plugged into the correct socket on the back of the device.

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

Error 401 & 634

error 634 is an indication that the line was either busy, or there was no answer on the receiving end.
