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.

    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

Power is not comming into the printer


No power to the printer. 1) Either the power adapter is not connected properly.Remove the power cord from main power outlet and connect it to any other electric outlet.Also at the back of the printer there is a socket where the power got get connected.Remove power wire from there too and reconnect it. 2) If the problem is not solved then there are two possibilities:-- A) The power cord is faulty and needs replacement. B) Or the printer circuit board is got short and it has to be replaced. ------------ In both the cases A as well as B you need to get the fault checked by other spare power adapter or power supply board in printer.At local printer repair shops they have this parts in spare.They will get the fault checked and let you know that which part has to be replaced.Either the power adapter or power supply board.The cost of new power adapter is near to $10 and cost of new power supply board is near to $40. -------------- One more thing i want you to check is.In your printer power adapter there is one three pin power wire is connected.That three pin power wire wire goes from main power outlet to the printer adapter.In some cases that three pin power adapter gets faulty.If that three pin power wire is faulty then the cost of that power wire is just $2.So get that three pin power wire also checked. To see how this three pin power wire looks.See the fig below:--- helpmech_1.jpg
If this wire is faulty then its not much costly. ----------- This are all the possibilities that you will have to get checked.To get the fault confirmed.Thanks.Helpmech.

My Canon i6500 Printer has been in storage for a while when we moved house . I think there is a cord missing. Can you help. I only have one cord which is a USB to connect to the computer, is there a cord...


There is a mains power lead needed for this model of printer.
I don't have the same model printer here with me, but as far as I know from this range, you will need a standard *figure-8* lead, available from most shops around. Many £1 shops have them too.

My Lexmark X4650's wifi light is off. I have tried to reset the wireless settings but when I try it says "network connection in progress" and goes back to the set up menu. How do i resolve this? Thanks.


Great job on trying to reset the printer's wireless network adapter. Somehow, the printer's memory is stuck to thinking to connect to a wireless network when it's not communicating at all. Unplug the power adapter from the printer. The power adapter is the rectangular black box behind the printer where the power cord is attached. Wait at least 30 seconds before plugging back the power adapter in the printer. That should refresh itself. If wifi light won't turn on orange after the printer's on ready, reset the wireless network adapter again. Thanks.

Hello- carriage jam


I was just getting ready to pull the plug on this printer of mine, and order a new one, when I happened on a solution that worked...

Unplug the unit.
Open the top.
Move the carriage to the left.
CLEAN the black plastic tray that the ink cartridge "parks" over - it seems to collect gunky ink that impedes the movement of the cartridge... also clean the "rail" hehind it. I used a Windex knock-off -- and Q-Tips, somebody else said they used alcohol.

Seems to have done the trick for me. I wasted so much time downloading drivers thinking that it was a hardware problem :-(
