Product: office jet 3830
Operating System: macOS 10.14 Mojave
this office jet 3830 comes with fax - but since 9/2019 i purchased it, the fax has not function and I spend hundreds of hours with HP technicians all the way to their senior supervisors . The supervisor said they are committed to get problem solved for me and I can call anytime for the same issue. i just fax 2 pages out, no one can received them. I just called Hp, they said my warranty expired after one year, and since the supervisor didn't gave me a case number but said just call. they blocked me to talk to a technician now? and I an retiree, without talk to a live person, i don't know how to function ?

@yenhwa, Welcome to the HP Support Community!
Yes, this printer supports the fax feature.
Are you using a dedicated fax line or a shared line?
Do you get any errors while sending/receiving fax?

You may send a test fax to HP and HP will send you a reply. By this, we can check the fax functionality. Refer to this document to know how to send the fax.
Also, run a fax test on the printer.
Go to Fax > Setup > Tools > Run fax test and check if any of the tests failed.
Hope this helps! Keep me posted.
