I cant send a fax or reseave one


Sir/Madam

Solution one: Check the fax connections Use the following steps to check the physical connections, and then use the HP Fax Test Service.

Step one: Check the physical connections

  1. Disconnect the telephone cord from the HP fax product, and then examine the connector on the end of the cord. Make sure that the cord has only two wires. Figure 1: Two-wire telephone cord

  1. Four-wire telephone cordGraphic: Four-wire telephone cordIf the cord has four wires, replace it with a two-wire phone cord.
    If you must use a cord with four wires, use the converter that shipped with product. The converter allows a cord with four wires to work with a device that requires a cord with two wires.
  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.

If other devices need to use the same telephone jack, make sure that they are connected to the 2-Ext port on the back of the HP fax product.

    4 - Optional telephone
    5 - Answering machine
    6 - Two-wire telephone cord to 1-Line
  2. Pick up the telephone receiver and listen for a dial tone. Make sure that you can dial out using the telephone keypad.
    If there is a dial tone and you can dial out using the telephone, the HP fax product is connected correctly to a working telephone cord and telephone jack. If there is no dial tone, check the configuration again and make sure that it is set up correctly.If You Still Having Hp Printer Problem Then Visit Official HP Printer Website On Below Link URL http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&docname=c02263145

I own officejet 4215v it is stuck in the fax mode and I can't get it to go to print.


Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Sir this problem is due when by chance the Fax Mode is selected as default. To get to the print mode you need to change the mode to print. Try the following:
Click Start >> Print and Faxes (if you are using Win Xp) or Devices and Printers (if you are using Win 7) >> There will be the list of HP Office jet 4215 Fax and HP Office jet 4215 Printer. >> Right click on HP Office jet 4215 Printer ans Select as "Set as Default"
Now try to print again. If printer is still struck on the Fax Mode then possibility is that your printer is locked, In this case you need to Reset the printer: Follow the given steps to do this:-
  • Unplug the power supply from the rear of the product.
  • Unplug the power cord from the electrical outlet, power strip, or surge protector.
  • If the product uses a power module with a detachable power cord, disconnect the cord from the power module.
  • Wait 15 seconds.
  • Reconnect the power cord to the power module.
  • Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. Do not use a power strip or surge protector.
Now turn the printer On and now try to print again. I hope if first solution do not work then this will solve the problem. But if still it struck to Fax Mode then its may be a technical or hardware issue, You need to contact HP Support Center to solve your problem.
I hope this solution helps you and you have clear picture in your mind
Let me know if you have any confusion in your mind.

Sir, Your Rating as Five Stars for this solution and Words of appreciation as Feedback for me will be really esteemed
Thank You for taking my service

G85 USB failure


You will have to replace the main board in order to get a new USB connection. Have you tried using the parallel connection. Looks like a regular parallel connection but smaller. It takes a special cable that was originally sold with the printer. We have those cables for $15 if needed. The USB cable may be out but the parallel connection may work fine.
