Our new HP Oficejet Pro L7780 can send faxes but can't receive
We are on wireless for our printer. The HP L7780 is connected to power, phone cord (using our extra long phone connector as theirs was WAY too short), and a router to print wirelessly. We are a small business office and I can't seem to find any help, manual, directions. I need help!!! Help us receive those faxes. You are the Master
Re: Our new HP Oficejet Pro L7780 can send faxes but...
I too have a problem with HP7280. I can send faxes but not receive. I am using Cox digital cable phone service and have one phone line for phone and fax with distinctive ring for faxes. HP technical support tried test fax and he himself heard the distinctive rings. He basically ended call saying sorry but HP has problem with incoming digital phone fax signals and he had no solution.
Any ideas for solution with this model? Or do you know of any all in one combos, perhaps another brand that will work with digital signal?

First things first, i really want to know how things being setup in your end. Let say for example, from the walljack what is the device connected to it. Or if your using one line for both incoming calls and faxes. Or if your using a DSL also for that same phone number for faxing/incoming calls.
Those are just severa factors that affect your problems. Meanwhile, i cant give you a solution on your issue since i still dont have a clear picture on are the devices connected with each other. ALso, its really advisable that you need to use the telephone cord that came out with the box.

This is strange. Sounds like noise is in the line. Try searching the line for bad spots or replace the line. The ends could have corrosion on them also. The wires are most likely copper and the corrosion will be green. Check the box on the side of your house also. I would have the phone company check for noise in the line for you. Good luck.

If you cannot solve the issue with the Fax Report, you can do a semi-full reset on printer ( do not do the semifull reset on printer if connected to wireless, If you do so, the printer will loose wireless connectivity to router and you will have to setup the printer on router again )

Hate to say it, but it means "Don't buy HP printers". You'll be a whole lot happier with Canon or Epson. I had no end of trouble with more than HP all-in-one. They just get flaky after awhile, and the software (particularly scanning) is terrible.
