We have recently replaced a printer, a scanner and a fax machine with a HP MFP LaserJet M127fn device. The problem we are experiencing only occurs when attempting to send a fax after dialing a recipient’s number via an extension phone, which is connected with a cable we have got with an MFP to the slot intended for an extension phone, according to the instruction.
Receiving faxes works with no problems, as well as sending faxes via MFP. However, if we try to make a phone call with a recipient first (for instance, to ask for a fax signal), we encounter an issue.
So, we dial a number on a telephone, seamlessly make a conversation, ask for and get a fax signal. Then we press the green button for sending a fax on an MFP. The MFP starts Saving page 1, but then, instead of starting the sending, a message appears on an MFP display stating that a fax number should be entered, although the connection has already been made and a fax signal is still audible.
What is even more confusing is the fact that everything worked just fine on the first day:
Make a telephone connection, ask for and get a fax signal, press the green button for sending a fax, hang up the phone and the fax is being sent.
I would like to point out that the extension phone is connected to the corresponding MFP port (according to the instruction).
We have tried to reset to default and set it all up from the beginning.
We have also tried to set the Extension phone option ON, and then OFF again.
I understand you're receiving problems sending a fax after dialing a recipient number using the Laserjet M127FN. I will do my best to assist you! Please make sure the extension phone is turned on. Since this was working the first day you bought the printer, then I just sent you a private message. If you are not sure how to check your forum messages, this post has instructions
i have the same exact problem with the same exact model number ! except the fact that i didn't have this feature since the first day. before this, i had m1530 series and didn't have a single problem with that.
i didn't find any solution in this post. So, it would be great if you help me too.
