I want to be able to fax from the computer - Office Equipment & Supplies

  • Anonymous Jun 29, 2008

    Lexmark X8350. WinXP. Can fax from printer console. Can't fax from computer. It never asks for Fax#, just flashes a box 'printing to fax 8350...'. No fax and my windows default printer setting is changed to Fax Lexmark 8300 series from Lexmark 8300 series and I have to reset it to print to the Lexmark. Went to website from productivity suite and downloaded/installed cjb8300en. Unplugged, reboot, etc. Still not able to fax from computer and default printer setting is changed.

    VERRY FRUSTRATING. Just bought the Lexmark X8350 printer as replacement for HP 2410 which died of multiple power outages.

What O.S. are you using? You will need to have a modem installed and a phone line hooked up.
In Windows XP Fax is in - Programs - Accessories - Communications if it is installed. If it is not installed go to Add and Remove Programs and go to add Windows components and you should see it there. The problem is that you might have to have the Windows Disk.
I can't fix this for you, but if I helped you get it fixed, please rate it as a fixya not a helpful rating. These ratings let me be allowed to help you and others in the future.

I have an HP 2510 printer. I cannot use it to fax because once I plug the phone jack into the printer I get a busy signal. If I plug the jack into a phone, it works fine. How do I get the printer to...


Hi irwinbadin,

HP fax products are designed so that other telephone equipment can be connected on the same line as the fax. The unit must be connected first using a two-conductor fax/phone cable like the one that shipped with the HP product. Using a four-conductor telephone cable may cause problems receiving faxes or calls.

There are two different types of phone cables. There are two-conductor phone cables like what originally shipped with the HP fax product and there are four-conductor cables. HP fax products are designed to work with a two-conductor phone cable. Look at the end of the cable and verify that it has only two copper leads or wires. Replace any four-conductor cables with a two-conductor cable. Only two-conductor phone cables should be used to connect the all-in-one to the phone line.

Figure 1: The difference between a two-conductor phone cable and a four-conductor phone cable

Step one: Connect the phone line to the fax
The fax will have two or three sockets (or jacks) for phone lines. Some of these may have a removable plastic plug in them. These sockets will be labeled with text, To Wall Jack , or with a graphic of the wall jack. See Figure 1 below.

Plug the two-conductor telephone cable that came with the HP product into the telephone wall jack. Then, plug it into this socket as shown below.

In areas with above ground telephone lines and electrical storms (lightning), it is a good idea to purchase a telephone line surge suppressor and connect it between the telephone wall jack and the fax. This will help prevent damage to the fax from a lightning-caused power surge on the phone line.

Step two: Add other phone-line devices
To connect other telephone devices, use the other socket (or sockets) on the fax. These are identified by text or with a graphic of a telephone and/or computer.

Connect a caller ID unit between the fax and the telephone.
Use the information below that matches the devices you need to connect.

Fax and telephone
Connect a single-line telephone to one of the added sockets on the fax. The telephone will share the same phone line as the fax. See the illustration below.

Fax, answering machine, and telephone
When a telephone answering machine and telephone are connected, connect the answering machine to the fax and then connect the telephone to the answering machine as shown below.

reyjoshua07_8.jpg


Fax and computer modem
To use a fax and a computer modem on the same phone line, connect the fax to the computer modem. The modem socket on the computer may be labeled Line or Wall jack .

reyjoshua07_9.jpg


Fax, computer modem, and telephone
To use a computer modem and a telephone with the fax, connect the computer modem to the fax. Then, connect the telephone into the second phone line connector on the computer modem or the third fax socket (if it is available). The image below shows how to connect a computer and a telephone to a fax with two sockets.

reyjoshua07_10.jpg


Fax, modem, answering machine, and telephone
The image below shows how to connect a computer modem, answering machine, and telephone to a fax. Connect the computer modem to the fax, then connect the answering machine to the computer, and finally, connect the telephone to the answering machine.
If the fax has three phone line sockets instead of two, some of the devices can be connected to the other phone socket on the fax.

I tried to fax from my computer using the x7170, but it only prints. I can fax from the machine. Is there another software I need, or driver? Thanks, Ken


Hello. Make sure that the fax software is already installed in the computer. There should be a fax object in Printers and Faxes/Printer/Printers and Devices(for Windows) or in Print and Fax(for Macintosh). If there is, when you send a fax from the computer, make sure to use the correct print object which is for the fax. If driver is not installed, reinstall the software.
