    This is WEIRD! Suddenly, when I go to print anything with my HP 6500, instead of printing I get a "Ready To FAX" window instead! I've tried everything: checked for default device, checked all connections, used troubleshoot, unplugged & rebooted, threw it at the wall (not!), nothing works. Please answer or post the fix if anyone knows. Thank you for saving a non-techie! Steve F.

    In the print dialog, check that the printer is selected, not the fax device.

    Both printer options shown say "printer fax series 6500", and one is checked as default. I switched to the other, same *&^&^$^@** result! Ready for next suggestion?? Thanks, Steve

    Can you print a test page?
    Reinstall the printer.

    I did print a test page, all systems/settings NORMAL! I disagree with that of course.... I was hoping to avoid uninstall/reinstall, have that as a last resort, That's why I came here, hoping someone else went thru this and found a way to correct it.Thanks for helping, and I'm hoping for more assistance.
