HP2840

HP2840 FAX stopped after switch from Verizon to Atlantic Broadband  cable telephone.  Two phone lines, one for office phone and one dedicated FAX.  Both phone lines working.  Settings FAX on HP2840 check out.  Out going FAX calls out, connects, but no "hand shake."  In coming FAX, rings, picks up. but no "hand shake."

No other changes to FAX except change to ABB.

HELP?

Thank you for posting on HP Support Community.

 

Don't worry as I'll be glad to help, I have a few troubleshooting steps we could try to fix the issue:  

 

Sending and receiving of data through the serial fax modem can only occur during an active fax session. A fax session can only be established between two fax modems that successfully negotiate common capabilities such as fax resolution, transmission speed, compression, and format.

 

Fax negotiation and communication uses the T.30 protocol, which is restricted to fax communications. A fax session cannot be negotiated for anything other than a fax transfer, so it is not possible for other components in or out of the system to use the modem for transferring data other than fax data.

 

Hope this helps! Keep me posted for further assistance.

The reply I received is not helpful.  I do not understand it and frankly, it sounds like double talk.

I need to find our why  my HP2840 FAX picked  up with Verizon as the phone carrier, but  now that I have Atlantic Broadband as the carrier, it will not pick up,  The incoming phone line is working correctly.  My HP2840 seems unable to go to the FAX "handshake" when there is an incoming  FAX.

I have reviewed all the FAX set up settings and they are correct.

Thank you for your assistance.
