Hi there,

May i know what is your purpose connecting those unit?

If you want your computer can dial up internet connection, just plug your phone line to computer modem port and other side plug to the phone port at your fax machine.

If you want your computer can send fax, same with above tips. but you must install fax program at your computer, so you can directly send fax through your computer.

The print spooler is not working on my dell inspiron 530. I have tried to start it, but it will not start. Help!!!!!


Have you gone to start, settings printers and faxes, right click on the printer in question, click on the advanced tab and click next to "spool document so it prints faster"? You will need to do this on the computer connected to the printer. Computers that are connected thru a network won't be able to make this change.

Let me know if this information is helpful.

Does a Dimension 4700 have an internal fax modem?


Hello

This unit does have an internal Modem, all you will need to do once the cable is plugged into the computer, you will need to load software which will enable you to send faxes from your computer.

Please feel free to let me know if you have any further questions.

Kind regards

Are you sure you have a good phone line connected? If so does it still have a dial tone? If so it's software issue. Youu'll need to contact the peaple for that software.

Please leave comment and review.

I can;t received faxes on my computer


Are you using DSL connection or Dial-up?
What OS are you using?

The fax line and voice line are using the same frequency so you should be able to fax directly from your pc fax modem when using Dial up connection but in DSL the data and voice are using different frequency. So in normal situations you wont be able to fax using DSL modem unless you use a separate fax machine.

However, if specified during the set-up of the DSL line, the signal can be separated so that some of the bandwidth is used to transmit an analog signal (for voice and fax) while the remaining bandwidth is used to transmit digital data. This allows for the use of the telephone or fax, and computer on the same line and at the same time. When inquiring about DSL with the service provider, specify the desire to use the phone line for voice or fax calls while connected through the computer to the Internet.

Reference the following setup options for using a DSL line with HP all-in-one or fax products.

I'm useing same phone for fax. can't seem to make fax work(go throu) don't know if I have the right connections


you are having right connection but only for voice call
some service providers are not providing data calls( Fax) by default
means if you have cabled landline then you might get data calls facility with it
but if you are having wwl or cdma type landline then you might not get fax facility by default
you just need to ask your service center for data call
and if needed just activate tyhat service and you will see your fax machine working

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.

How do I fax?


Sending a fax from your computer requires a fax modem and that your operating system be configured to allow you to send and receive faxes.

to send from fax software
step 1 Prepare the document that you want to fax. Step2 Prepare a fax cover sheet, if desired. Step3 Open your fax software - such as Microsoft Fax or Microsoft Exchange. Step4 Look for an icon or menu command that allows you to send a fax - such as Send New and Send Fax. Click on that item. Step5 Follow instructions for entering the fax number of the recipient and any other requested information. Be sure to include area codes and long-distance information if needed. Step6 Indicate whether you wish to send a cover sheet. Step7 When asked to attach the file, follow instructions to attach the file that you want to fax. Step8 When ready, click Send. The fax will begin to compile the information and, when ready, will dial the remote fax machine. Step9 When the connection is made, the fax will be sent. To Fax From Your Word Processing Program Step1 Some software products, such as Microsoft Word, allow you to fax a document without opening your fax software. Step2 Open the document that you want to fax. Step3 From the File menu, select Print. The Print window opens. Step4 Instead of printing to your default printer, look for an option that allows you to Print to Fax. Select this option and click Print. Step5 You will be asked to provide the recipient's fax number and other assorted information as with a fax program. Step6 The fax message compiles, the modem dials. If the connection is made with the other modem, the fax will be sent.
