FAX ANSWERS AND DIALS, BUT DOESNT FININSH THE JOB

I moved the fax into another office. It rings and shows that it is recieving but does not print out the fax. It will also dial and connect when you send out a fax, but will not complete the job. I moved it back to it's original location, but it still is not working. I have also tried a couple of different phone cables.

How do i retreive and receive faxes? My machine has recieved material in memory, yet when i try to print them, the alarm rings after first page and display reads "CHECK PAGE SIZE, press OK" It will re


If you are able to print normally from this model, despite the 'stuck' faxes, then it could be that you have been sent a document that is not the same size as that in your tray. Try cutting A4, if that is what you have, down to 'legal' and see if will move on to next page. If this works, cut some more and print job till finished.
If the above makes no difference, you may have to do a memory reset to clear a corrupt fax record. Caution! this would clear all faxes queued in your machine.

Got new hp elite m9402f computer but new hp fax doesnt answer


hi there,

initially you have to check and correct this few settings.

To receive a fax manually

1. Make sure the device is turned on and you have paper loaded in the main tray.

2. Remove any originals from the document feeder tray.

3. Set the Rings to Answer setting to a high number to allow you to answer the
incoming call before the device answers. Or, turn off the Auto Answer setting so
that the device does not automatically answer incoming calls.

4. If you are currently on the phone with the sender, instruct the sender to press Start on their fax machine.

5. When you hear fax tones from a sending fax machine, do the following:


a. Press the left arrow or the right arrow to select Fax B&W or Color fax.
b. Press Start.
c. After the device begins to receive the fax, you can hang up the phone or remain on the line. The phone line is silent during fax transmission.

Hope this initial info helps you.

Receive fax on the fax system as well as your PC


If you change the number of rings on the fax machine to more than on your PC, your PC should receive the fax first and accomplish your goal.

I HAVE A HP OFFICE 4315 ALL IN ONE PRINT.. I CANT GET FAX AUTOMATICALLY


Set to fax, ring it from another phone, what happens? Count how many times it rings before answering (if it answers)

 

Do you have other things attached to it?

 

Where is the phone line attached to socket marked line or ext?

 

Do you use Broadband? Has the fax got filters attached before it?

 

Are there other phones in the house or has the fax a dedicated line?
