HP Photosmart 7510 – Can’t eFax, Bogus “not connected to a network message”

October 7, 2012 2 comments

NOTE: I referred to these posts for guidance on troubleshooting this issue:

Two things listed to try, either by themselves or in conjunction with each other are:

1) Turn the ePrint Service off then on again (weird I know, but remember the most common fix for MS Windows computers is to restart the machine) and

2) Use manual DNS addresses as 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 for Preferred and Alternate DNS’s, respectively.

I tried both of these and there was no change in my issue. The isssue, BTW, for me personally is that I have apparently successfully registered with the eFax service via my printer (HP Photosmart 7510 e-All-in-One Printer – C311), but it always hangs when “Sending eFax“. The it returns the message:

yellow warning exclamation inside triangle yield signNo Connection
Your printer is not connected to a network. Touch Try Again to attempt to send the fax again. Touching Cancel will abandon the current fax.

Also … do you have to prefix a 1 in the USA to send a fax? Maybe that’s the issue??

UPDATE: Nope, tried prefix with a 1 and that didn’t help either. Same error.

3) I also registered my HP ePrint mobile printing at eprintcenter.com.  ePrintCenter says “connected” and “ready“.  Tried refreshing the printer then retried faxing again, only to receive the same error noted above.

I don’t know what else I can do with this as I have investigated various blog posts for a good answer, … unfortunately none of the answers provided helped my situation. If anyone has any knowledge of this issue I’d love to hear what your experiences have been … just post your responses below. Any help is appreciated because I’m stumped on this one friends!

Hackers vs audiophiles: which headphone do they prefer?

Hackers vs audiophiles: which headphone do they prefer?.

Headphones for Hackers

– Anonymous Hacker

Headphones are ingrained in startup culture. If you visit a startup office, more often than not, it seems like everyone is wearing headphones. The same workplace norm doesn’t appear to exist at law firms, medical practices or anywhere else really.

A hacker needs to concentrate without interruption for long periods of time and yet has almost no quiet personal space at work. A pair of headphones is a great solution to the contradiction inherent in this situation.

Beyond the practicalities, hackers seem to be personally invested in their choice of headphones. Headphones are a tool of the trade, and like many craftsmen, programmers like to talk about their tools (what other professions could have lively debates about Text Editors?). Ask a programmer about his headphones and you’re likely receive a more detailed response than you care to hear.

At Priceonomics we became curious about what types of headphones programmers actually … (Read more here)
