My printer will not fax says not connected to network when it is.


faxing requires some type of Phone connection in most instances, network faxing is another set of drivers that need to run on your PC, the same as phone line faxing that utilizes your modem (as long as the modem is fax capable) the issue you have is the way it is set up. first off you have to have the communications between the printer and the computer running properly. If you do not have a router with a wifi connection and the printer is connecting directly to the computer wirelessly, you need to make sure it is set for peer to peer networking, if you have a true network using a router and wifi (more than one computer can connect to it, you need to make sure you are set for that. Remember, you are not faxing from the printer if it is not connected to a phone line, you are faxing from your computer. and you need to make sure you are running the correct type of fax software, for network faxing or dial up (phone line) faxing.

How to hook up fax on HP C7280


The C7280 can be used as a stand-alone fax machine. All you need to hook up to the printer is a telephone line. Connect the phone line to the jack marked "1-Line" on the rear panel, below the power supply connector. If you want, you can connect an extension phone to the jack marked "2-Ext". The line connection is for a standard telephone line. Once the line is connected, faxing is pretty much the same as it is on any fax machine. Put your documents face up in the feeder on top, or for a single sheet, face down on the scanner glass. Press the "Fax menu" button on the control panel and you'll be asked for the number. Enter the number from the keypad and then press the "Start fax black" or "Start fax color" color button to send the fax. Other than the phone line, there isn't anything else you need to hook up.

You can download the manual from HP if you need it for reference. It explains how to use the special features of the fax machine, like broadcast faxing, memory dialing, printing fax reports, etc.

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.

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.

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.

Cannot send a fax


For a fax to work you do not need a broadband. What you need is a phone like. It seems that you are trying to use broadband for fax because it is the same phone line that they both are on. Sorry, will not work that way. If you trace back you will find that there is a little box that has the phone line coming into from outside. The box splits it into phone and dsl. It is this phone line that should go into the fax and not the dsl line.
So please remove the dsl line from the fax and connect the phone line and you will see that the fax works.

Receiving and sending faxes


if the fax is connected to the same line and you have a phone connected to the fax you need to make sure you connect the line from the socket at wall to the correct socket on the fax you can check this by looking at the point the line is connected on fax there should be two connectors one says line and one says tel.. the line in goes to the line socket and your telephone goes into the tel socket.. if you have them the other way round it cant connect properly..on the front display panel make sure you have it set to the auto setting or tel fax mode for receive.. if you have it to auto it will check the incoming call if it is a fax it will send it through if not it will ring till you answer.. if set to tel/fax mode when it rings you will have to answer the phone and manually press start if you hear it is a fax.. Good luck A

Hi there. I have just taken over this office and am not sure what is connected and what is not. I am trying to send a fax through my computer and the "waiting for printer to respond:Canon MP830...


you need to give more details on how you're trying to send the fax.
keep in mind you don't actually need a printer to send the fax if you're using your computer to send the fax.. that's the reason you need to be more precise when discribing your problem.

in general you need to be familiar with how things are connected.

if your printer is a fax machine too the minimum you need is to have your printer/fax connected to a line (to the telephone wall jack) and to be powered up.

if your printer is only a printer and you're using your computer to send the fax you need to have your modem (the connector in the back of your computer that looks like a telephone line but says not telephone but 'line' connected to the phone line on the wall) connected and have software that allows you send faxes via your computer. (windows xp has that software so you need to make sure is installed (start>control panel>add remove programs>add/remove windows components>fax services should be installed) and if the software is installed you should be able to go to start>accessories>communications>fax>fax console

confirm what is your set up and give more details.
