Test fax setup

You can test your fax setup to check the status of the

device and to make sure it is set up properly for faxing.

Perform this test after you have completed setting up the

device for faxing. The test does the following:

• Tests the fax hardware
• Verifies the correct type of phone cord is connected

to the device

• Checks that the phone cord is plugged into the

correct port

• Checks for a dial tone
• Checks for an active phone line
• Tests the status of your phone line connection
The device prints a report with the results of the test.

If the test fails, review the report for information on how

to fix the problem and rerun the test. For additional

troubleshooting information, see “Solving fax problems

(optional)” on page 26.

To test fax setup

1. Set up the device for faxing according to your

particular home or office setup instructions.

2. Make sure the ink cartridges and printheads are

installed, and that full-size paper is loaded in the

input tray before starting the test.

3. From the control panel, press Setup.
4. Select Tools, and then select Run Fax Test.

The device displays the status of the test on the

display and prints a report.

5. Review the report.

• If the test passes and you are still having

problems faxing, check the fax settings listed in

the report to verify the settings are correct.

A blank or incorrect fax setting can cause

problems faxing.

• If the test fails, review the report for more

information on how to fix any problems found.
