Please follow these steps for help:

1
Print out the documents that you want to send. Create a cover letter if you are sending professional documents.
#
2

Separate documents by fax number. If you need to send faxes to more than one number, make piles for each number you need to fax to.
#
3

Set up pages in each document and pile according to how the fax machine accepts pages. Follow the diagram that located on the paper tray demonstrating how to position paper. Place the pages face down or face up on the paper tray, according to the diagram.



Your documents may feed from the back of the stack of pages to the front. It is possible that the fax machine will send the paper on top first. Check the fax's owner's manual to find out exactly how it sends pages. The page order, including your cover page, may be reversed when the recipient receives the fax.
#
4

Type the first fax number on the fax machine's dialing pad. Put the area code in first for local faxes that use a ten-digit number. Enter "1" before the area code for long distance faxes. Put in the country and city code, if necessary, if the fax is going to an international number.
#
5

Send an entire pile of documents at one time if they are all going to the same number. However, do not send more than about 10 to 20 pages at a time if you are using a desktop fax machine. You do not want to overload it. Higher-quality and higher-capacity fax machines can handle much larger documents, but remember that the recipient may not be able to handle too large of a document.



Repeat this procedure for faxes going to different numbers or for documents you have to send to the same number that exceed the approximate 20-page recommended maximum.
#
6

Push the "Send button" on the fax machine. Listen for the dial tone and the fax number being dialed, as well as the modem tone when the fax is connecting with and sending data to the receiving end machine.


FOR
Computer
1

Set up a fax modem on your land phone line. This is necessary if you are not going to use an Internet-based fax service.

2

Scan documents if you do not have copies of them saved on your computer. It is also possible to send faxes from open documents in many word processors.

3

Save multiple documents as one document if they are to be sent to one fax number. Copy and paste text from different word processing documents, and paste them into a new document. Save that document as either a PDF file or as a word processing document. Ensure the formatting matches your specifications. Add in your own cover letters between each document to ensure that your faxes get to the correct departments or individuals if they are not all going to the same location.

4

Open the first file you want to send. Choose "Print" from your open file, and select "Fax" as your printer. A fax wizard will open. Follow the instructions in the wizard to fill in the first fax number.

5

Send your faxes online an alternative to using a phone line-based fax modem. eFax Free, FreePopFax, and FreeFaxButton are three of the many online fax services available. These particular services allow you to fax documents online for free, but there are others that you can pay for that may meet your needs better.

If the FAX is hanging up on the other end might be a 2 page limit on the other side, or you must have a dsl line with a bad filter try using a new filter if that is the case.

There can be allot of causes to this.

Lost my manual and don't know how to send a fax. Not sure which tray the document goes in. Can you help?


Directly from HP's manual on this printer:

Send a basic fax

You can easily send a single- or multiple-page black-and-white fax by using the

control panel, as described here. If you want to send a color or photo fax, see the

onscreen HP Image Zone Help.

Note If you need printed confirmation that your faxes were successfully sent,

enable fax confirmation before sending any faxes. For more information, see

Print fax confirmation reports.

Tip You can also send a fax manually from a phone or by using monitor

dialing. These features allow you to control the pace of your dialing. They are

also useful when you want to use a calling card to charge the call and you

need to respond to tone prompts while dialing. For more information, see Send

a fax manually from a phone or Send a fax using monitor dialing.

1. Load your originals, with the print side up, into the document feeder tray. If you

are sending a single-page fax, such as a photograph, you can also load your

original on the glass.

Note If you are sending a multiple-page fax, you must load the originals

in the document feeder tray. You cannot fax a multiple-page document

from the glass.

2. Press Fax.

 

For more assistance with this printer, you can go to http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=441125& and download the owner's manual. It is in PDF form, so you will need adobe reeader which you can get for FREE at http://www.adobe.com

Will not fax but will receive


Sounds like you are faxing multiple pages through the document feeder and it is trying to grab a few sheets instead of just one.
If you are doing multiple pages make sure they are aligned and separated.
Maybe fan the pages and then pat them on a level surface to make sure they are aligned.

I need to know how to send a Broadcast fax to multiple numbers


This is right from the manual:
You can use the Multiple Send feature, which allows you to send a fax to
multiple locations. Originals are automatically stored in memory and sent
to a remote station. After transmission, the originals are automatically
erased from memory.
1 Press Fax.
2 Load originals face up into the ADF, or place a single original face
down on the scanner glass.
For details about loading an original, see page 5.1.
3 Adjust the document resolution and darkness to suit your fax needs.
See page 9.1.
4 Press Menu until Fax Feature appears on the bottom line of the
display and press OK.
5 Press the Scroll buttons until Multi Send appears and press OK.
6 Enter the number of the first receiving fax machine and press OK.
You can use speed buttons, speed dial numbers, or group dial
numbers. For details, see page 10.2.
7 Enter the second fax number and press OK.
The display asks you to enter another fax number to send the
document.
8 To enter more fax numbers, press OK when Yes appears and
repeat steps 6 and 7. You can add up to 209 destinations.
Note
You cannot use group dial numbers for another fax number.
9 When you have finished entering fax numbers, select No at the
Another No.? prompt and press OK or Start.
The original is scanned into memory before transmission. The
display shows memory capacity and the number of pages being
stored in memory.
10 If an original is placed on the scanner glass, select Yes to add
another pages. Load another original and press OK.
When you have finished, select No at the Another Page? prompt.
The machine begins sending the fax to the numbers you entered in
the order in which you entered them.
