Fax information is incoming but no outgoing,


if its doing this with only certain senders it is possible the sender is scrambling their fax number. If so look in setup menu or tools and patiently study the settings.

Block certain number


This in not achievable on the printer itself. You would need to contact your telephone company. Continuous calls can be considered harassment and most companies have a system in place to deal with this.
The other option is to call the number and ask them to stop calling your number as you would rather not hear from them.

Hi there, someone has sent us hundreds of faxes that have crashed our fax machine. Is there a way to clear the "receiving" que and block incoming faxes from that sender. We cannot send or...


Hello Ihall,
Wow, That sux , and I mean it.Fax "spam" is difficult to deal with, and has been an increasing problem.Typically tho, its just an AMWAY fax or a free trip to Panama, discount tanning bed etc... . This is a fax bomb and someone is actually breaking federal law BIG TIME. They have (for whatever reason) dedicated significant resources on their end to do this. There are major hurdles and differences between NETWORK traffic, where you can select the IP addresses that you wish to allow or exclude, and phone traffic.It's just like if someone decided to hit redial aimed at your personal phone.Fax traffic cannot really be tracked at the end user level other that running an activity report, establishing that a specific number is harassing you and calling the phone company or whomever provides your phone service.Then you have to file a complaint thru this provider who will contact the FCC.The copier/ fax only knows to accept the incoming call. Lets look at it this way.If it was your home phone you could pay for services that could block a certain phone number perhaps but I bet your fax line does not have caller ID, call block, etc.If I were you I would disconnect the phone line from the copier briefly. Then locate the system monitor block at the bottom of your display and press it. Locate the fax tab at the top and press it.Select print list and it will tell you all the activity both incoming and outgoing, with phone numbers ,times etc. Determine the number that is wearing you out and call your phone provider.They won't think this is funny especially as you will have a report that lists all the activity. Again this is a federal crime and they will actually send Marshall's to the location, rip out their communication **** and possibly arrest them on the spot.I hope I have made sense here as I am livid that someone would do this. Now since you have already indicated that you know how to delete these faxes, and it has taken you hours, You should ACTUALLY be able to highlight as many "**** faxes" as you wish as you go down the screen, and just check them off and at the end say "delete". I guess my bottom line is, No the device does not have the capability on its own to differentiate phone numbers. You need to get law enforcement involved. And you should be able to get rid of those faxes in mass. This is truly jeopardizing your device and your business as it is tieing up memory and processing capabilities and can bring the device to a screeching halt. I hope I have helped you, I am sure that the fundamentals I have explained are accurate. I wish you the best. If I helped you, please let "FIXYA" know. Good luck. I hope they cook the turd, I have been thru similar ****. Spinal

Hp officejet 6500 instructions for receiving a fax? Thanks


You can receive faxes automatically or manually. If you turn off the Auto Answer option, you must receive faxes manually. If you turn on the Auto Answer option (the default setting), the device automatically answers incoming calls and receives faxes after the number of rings that are specified by the Rings to Answer setting. (The default Rings to Answer setting is five rings.)
If you receive a legal-size fax and the device is not currently set to use legal-size paper, the device reduces the fax so that it fits on the paper that is loaded. If you have disabled the Automatic Reduction feature, the device prints the fax on two pages.
NOTE: If you are copying a document when a fax arrives, the fax is stored in the
device memory until the copying finishes. This can reduce the number of fax pages stored in memory.
This section contains the following topics:
• Receive a fax manually
• Set up backup fax reception
• Reprint received faxes from memory
• Poll to receive a fax
• Forward faxes to another number
• Set the paper size for received faxes
• Set automatic reduction for incoming faxes
• Block junk fax numbers
• Receive faxes to your computer (Fax to PC and Fax to Mac)
Receive a fax manually
When you are on the phone, the person you are speaking with can send you a fax while you are still connected. This is referred to as manual faxing. Use the instructions in this section to receive a manual fax.
NOTE: You can pick up the handset to talk or listen for fax tones.
You can receive faxes manually from a phone that is:
• Directly connected to the device (on the 2-EXT port)
• On the same phone line, but not directly connected to the device
NOTE: The automatic document feeder must be empty to receive a fax. If there are documents in the ADF, then the device will not be able to receive incoming faxes.
To receive a fax manually
1. Make sure the device is turned on and you have paper loaded in the input tray.
2. Remove any originals from the document feeder tray.
NOTE: The automatic document feeder must be empty to receive a fax. If there
are documents in the document feeder, then receiving the fax will be
unsuccessful.
3. Do one of the following to answer a fax manually:
• Set the Rings to Answer setting to a high number to allow you to answer the
incoming call before the device answers.
• Turn off the Auto Answer setting so that the device does not automatically
answer incoming calls.
4. If you are currently on the phone with the sender, instruct the sender to press Start on their fax machine.
5. When you hear fax tones from a sending fax machine, do the following:
a. Press START FAX Black or START FAX Color on the device control panel.
b. When prompted, select Fax Receive.
NOTE: Depending on your country/region, the device might receive the fax
automatically when you hear fax tones from the sending fax machine.
6. After the device begins to receive the fax, you can hang up the phone or remain on the line. The phone line is silent during fax transmission.

Junk Faxes


Rita Lee, I can't find my manual for this model but what I would suggest is turning off the "auto receive'" function. This is what I found online.
Depending on what (FX,AU,TM.TL) is displayed on the right hand side. Use the Ans.Mode/Contrast button to change that to TL is displayed.

The fax will not accept incoming faxes but you might also have a problem with the actual line being busy.

If you don't have the book I can send you the link.

I hope I have been of help.

Receiving a fax


Faxes fail intermittently or with only one fax number
  • If static is present on the phone line, fax communication may fail. Have the phone line checked and serviced by the telephone company (or have the other party check their line). Phone line quality is the most common reason for intermittent fax failures. Some older locations and buildings have inadequate phone system wiring.
  • If you are trying to send a color fax and it fails, try sending the same machine a black and white fax. Normally the fax will detect that the other fax is not color capable and will offer you the option to send the fax as black and white but this might not always be the case. Do not send color faxes unless you know the other fax machine is capable of receiving color faxes.
  • Check the phone cable from the wall jack to the fax. It should not be coiled or longer than necessary. Coiling the cable can cause cross talk or echo on the line. Signal strength and quality can be lost with long cables.
  • Make sure the phone cable routing (and any cables not plugged into the same jack but sharing the same line) is not near any electrical appliances (electric motors, fans, kitchen appliances, or televisions). Many of these devices do not have sufficient electrical shielding and can induce electro-magnetic force (EMF) onto the phone line. Computers are usually shielded sufficiently and do not cause this problem.
  • Do not use a call-waiting service on the same line connected to the fax machine. The click sound caused by an incoming call can cause the fax to fail.
  • You can block certain faxes on some models. Verify that the telephone number of the sending fax is not blocked in the faxing software. This is usually located in the Fax History.
