Question about HP Fax Machines

1 Answer

Have two fax machines on two seperate broadband lines, both lines also serve internet/mail access which is working fine. Both faxes exhibit periodic/intermittent transmit and receive problems. Have had lines checked by BT, both are apparently fine with no noise issues. Both ADLS filters have also been changed. On the Laserjet 3055, error codes 283 (receive) and 386 (send) seem to feature regularly.

You can not send or receive faxes with any consistency on Broadband lines. You need an analog telephone line for these to work. Fax machines work on analog technology.

Some lines are missing when receiving faxes


Horizontal or vertical? Or do you mean lines of text?
Did you try to copy a document? If the copy is fine, then the fault is on the sending side, or there are severe transmission errors.
If the copy exhibits the same faults as the received faxes, then something is wrong with the printing part of your fax, and solving the problem will depend on the printing technology used (inkjet - clogged heads, need cleaning, or empty ink, needs replacing etc.)

Can't receive faxes but can send them okay


The easiest thing to check is the recieve mode setting. most of the time when this happens the machine is set on manual recieve. Set it to automatic recieve and you should be fine.

Broadband phone line


No, fax machines are ANALOG devices and will only work on POTS (Plain Old Telephone System)

NO DIAL TONE


If you are using the same phone line on broadband and fax, you may need to use a filter for the fax line. Also make sure the phone line is plugged into where it says "line" side of the fax and not where it says phone.

Hope this helps...

Fax machine cuts in when dialling up internet


many if not most Fax machines made in the last 5 years, the fax has priority answer set into them.
No way to turn that off. It will answer the line first.
I fought that for quite a while replacing boards and settings. Just takes priority.
