Can't fax in or out with my L7680

When faxing out yesterday and again today, the fax seems to be going fine until it says "connecting" for a while and then prints out Error 388--A communication error occurred during the fax transmission. . . .

This morning, someone tried repeatedly to fax something in to my machine, but was unsuccessful.

What's changed and how can we fix this? I need my fax!

When sending a fax the pages do not go through the feeder until the connection with the recipient is made. Once made it pulls the papers one by one. It will not store and send. This was working fine up...

fax memory switched on documents held until other machine answers then transmits page by page fuction parameters of fax side of machine fuction 7 then 4 switch memory to on . the only other way the machine will send like this is by a manual dial when the hook button is pressed then the number put in the documents are held until the user is prompeted to press the start key

I want to set up the fax facility of the HP L7680. I have a ADSL modem and share the telephone line. Can you help me? Allen Versteeg


First you must have a two prong cable (RJ11)
That should be connected to Line 1 at the back of the printer

On the printer press the setup button
Select Basic fax setup >> Ok >>Select rings to answer >> make it to 2
Then Go back to the previous menu select Advanced fax setup>> ok>>
Select Answer rings pattern>> All rings

This should work
