Re: how to fax documents from my hp officejet j4580?

Thanks again for your help. I did what you asked, all works great as far as the tests are concerned, and nothing has changed. And once again I questioned it since I could not see how it would solve the problem. So perhaps it is my fault for not explaining things properly. So I will start again.

If I choose a jpg file while within "HP Document Manager" the choice to send a fax is made available. This assumes I could send a fax of a jpg image without any problems. However. why can I not do the same for a txt document, or a pdf document or a Word document or an Excel worksheet etc. etc.? What this is suggesting is that only jpg image files could be sent as faxes and that if I want to send a text oriented document I must first print it, then scan it, and then save it as a .jpg--then and only then can I send it as a fax. I find this process of doing so long, therefore time-consuming, unproductive and wasteful (ink and paper). Certainly there must be a better way.

Hi pintree3,

 

Thank you for your reply! I have a few more questions for you:

 

  • What Operating System are you using? Windows or Mac? What version?
  • Can you make copies with the printer?
  • Is the power cable plugged into a surge protector or directly to the wall outlet?
  • Are you able to scan from the computer?

 

Hope to hear back from you, and have a nice day!
