I have the HP Office jet J5780 All-in-One. When I receive a fax, it is printed backwards and I have to read it in front of the mirror. What is wrong and how do I fix it?

    I have same problem, I hate this printer

  • lasertronlr Aug 28, 2008

    Everything I print is backwards too, including MS Word & Excel documents. Advice?

  • Anonymous Aug 30, 2008

    Mirror images only started after downloading a Microsft update. Both web and Word are affected, i.e., nothing is readable. Note the problem is mentioned as encountered by Apple users on the HP site, but this is a PC.



    What to do ??

    I just downloaded a Windows Service Pack kind of update and now everything I try to print from my computer on my HP Officejet J5780 prints backwards. Any suggestions? It pretty much has to be the Windows update that did it.

    Does it happens only with the fax? What about printing from the computer?

I also had this problem, for some reason when you do the service pack 3 update the mirror option in the printer preferences (advanced tab) is turned on. just turn it off and you are done.

When the HP Office jet series all-in-one front panel screen displays Memory Full, the HP Office jet all-in-one is not able to send, receive or forward faxes. Copying will also not work. WORKAROUND: Though the memory buffer should clear itself automatically after proceeding with the next task, like receiving a fax or starting a copy job, these suggestions below may help you clearing the memory buffer by:
  • Add paper to the HP Officejet series paper tray
  • Clear a possible print jam and proceed printing the fax.
  • Reduce the copying or faxing resolution via the front panel's menu.
  • Use the HP Manager to send a (group) fax or making a copy. More memory is available this way, as the HP Manager utilizes the PC memory. When sending a group fax, the HP Officejet all-in-one's memory is filled to capacity. To copy in color is only possible from the HP Officejet Manager.
  • Press START to clear the message. If this message persists, unplug the power cord, and after at least 15 seconds plug the power cord in.
CAUSE: The HP Officejet series memory may be full due to: Copying on Photo quality or sending a group dial, which will use an extensive part of the internal memory's capacity. No paper in the paper supply tray, while receiving a fax. This may result that the data remains in the buffer. Print jam while receiving a fax or copying. The data is still stored in the buffer. System error displayed on the HP Officejet display window. SUMMARY: The HP Officejet series will not fax or copy without sufficient memory to store the data of the page in the buffer before printing the receiving fax or the copy.

Open up any document.

Select File>Print

When the Print window opens, click on Preferences.

Click on the Advanced tab.

Look for a Mirror Image menu item.

If it says ON click on it and change the choice to OFF.

Click OK.

Click Print.

My printer all in one office jet j5780 its connected to the computer, I have only one pohone line and its connected but I can't print. It reads ph. off hook.


the message "phone off hook" is a normal message if you will used your phone, just ignore that message.

- if you cant print first thing you do is to goto start>control panel>printer and faxes then check the iocn if it is online of offline if it is offline just right click the icon and set printer online and if there is pending documents, right click again the icon and select cancel documents.
- if still the same your printing is not printing then you must uninstall and reinstall the software

Recieving fax no printout, all other printing processes ok


When you say all other printing processes are ok, I am assuming you can make copies and print from the computer. If so...then are the blank faxes coming from several different fax machines or are they coming from one particular fax machine. If one particular fax machine, then the problem is probably on their end. I need to go backwards a second....when you receive a fax does the machine spit out a blank page or no paper is fed at all..it just receives the fax? Is the machine programmed to just receive faxes to memory to be printed out later? It doesn't make sense for it to print or copy but not to print a fax. If problem persist try a different fax modem.
