First, Connect the Phone line in Line 1 EXT at back of printer
Check the No. of Rings on your Answer machine. If you have 4 Rings set on Answer machine then you need to set 6 Rings on the printer ( as simple 2 rings more than your Answer machine ) And you need to turn off ECM on the Printer setup
Press Setup button Scroll till you find Fax Settings - Press OK Choose Rings to Answer - Set it - 6 ( based on the Rings on Answer machine ) - Press OK Check for ECM - Error Correction Mode - Press OK Turn it OFF - Press OK Check for Auto Answer option - Turn it ON too.
Make sure the machine is set to auto receive, and make sure the phone cord is in the line jack on the machine. Also if the machine is connected to a line with an answering machine set the fax to pick up before the answering machine does.
you really have a very good choice of printers
is one of the best printers from hp
inorder to set fax on ur printer you should first be sure what type of telephone line you are using
there are 2 type of line 1 dedicated -> that is directly attached for fax and has no other telephone or TAM connected
if you have this line you can directly attach the phone line on the printer line 1
the other type of line is shared that means you use the same line for phone and fax
in this the connection should be as :- telephone line from wall jack to the printer line 1
then from printer ext port to telephone answering machine (if any ) then from answering machine to telephone
(if u have a dsl line that means u use phone and internet from the telephone line then there will be 2 lines comming out of the splitter 1 to router and other to telephone here follow the shared line connection mentioned above using the line that goes to the telephone )
now power on the printer and press the setup button (menu) now navigate to basic fax set up press ok and then go to rings to answer it should be 4 rings
now go back and go to advance fax setting and then to distintive ring (DRP) select all rings
and press ok
now run fax test if it passes
then ur fax is set up
try sending fax now
hope this will help you
If you do that I believe what will happen is that the Fax machine will answer your phone,unless you can set it to not answer until after so many rings, and you answer it first,beofere that number of rings. You will have to installor program the software for the fax part of your printer .
In Order to use a Fax functionality of the router you need to connect the small RJ11 cable for telephones on the printer port. These printers do not suppoer VOIP Fax. To use VOIP as fax you can purchase a online VOIP subscription where you can scan and fax the documents.
Hi, I'd love to help you with the problem you described.
Connect your phone line (out of the wall or your phone modem supplied by your phone or cable company) into the jack on your MFC-240 has a picture that is shaped like a little telephone. These jacks are located on the lower left back corner when you are facing your printer.
In the same location, there is another jack right next to the one you just plugged into. Take the phone cord that came with your printer and plug one end into the jack.
Plug the other end of this cord into the base of your phone or answering machine.
Test your connections by picking up your phone handset and listening for a dial tone.
Next, set the receive mode your printer for fax only (if you set the receive mode to phone/fax or other mode, you could experience problems with your voice mail). Fax only will ensure that your printer will only answer fax calls. Here's how you do it.
Press the menu key on your MFC-240
Press 0 (display switches to initial set up)
Press 1 (display switches to receive mode)
Fax only should be the first item that shows on the display.
Press the ok button on your MFC-240. The machine is now ready to receive faxes.
If you have not done so already set up either your answering machine or your cable company voice mail.

You have to have either a dedicated phone line just for the fax --or-- pay your phone company approximately $2 a month for a service called Distinctive Ringtone. This service will ring a certain way when you have an incoming fax. You will then configure your fax machine to pick up when this distinctive rington is heard. The ringtone is usually two or three quick rings. Your fax machine's settings will have this setting.
Unfortunately, you can't just plug your fax machine into your phone line and start sending/receiving faxes. Look through your fax machine's manual regarding the distinctive ring service. Good luck!!
