Now to receive a fax you must press START when the fax rings.

Can't receive faxes but can send them okay


The easiest thing to check is the recieve mode setting. most of the time when this happens the machine is set on manual recieve. Set it to automatic recieve and you should be fine.

HP 640 Fax...can't recieve faxes


You cannot use a four wire cable to connect the fax to the wall. You must use a two wire cable, like the one that came with the machine.  BTW, that means you can't you the EXT port to connect a two line phone or answering machine.

Have to be near fax machine to recieve fax


The Rings to Answer feature might not be set to answer after the
appropriate number of rings for your office setup.
If you have a voice mail service at the same phone number you use
for fax calls, you must receive faxes manually, not automatically. For
information on how to receive faxes manually, see receive a fax
manually from a phone
on page 48.
If you have a PC modem on the same phone line with your
HP Officejet, check to make sure that the modem’s software is not
set to receive faxes automatically. Modems with this auto fax
receive feature turned on will take over the phone line to receive all
incoming faxes, which will prevent the HP Officejet from receiving
fax calls.
If you have an answering machine on the same phone line with
your HP Officejet, you might have one of the following problems:
Your outgoing message might be too long or too loud to allow
the HP Officejet to detect fax tones, and the calling fax machine
might disconnect.
Your answering machine might not have enough quiet time after
your outgoing message to allow the HP Officejet to detect fax
tones. This problem is more common with digital answering
machines.
The following actions might help solve these problems:
a. Disconnect the answering machine and then try receiving a fax.
If faxing is successful without it, the answering machine might
be causing the problem.
b. Reconnect the answering machine and re-record your outgoing
message. Make sure the message is as short as possible (no
more than 10 seconds long), and that you speak softly and
slowly when recording it. Try again to receive a fax.
If you have a special ring pattern for your fax phone number (using
a distinctive ring service through your telephone company), make
sure that the Answer Ring Pattern feature on your HP Officejet is set
to match. For example, if the phone company has assigned your
fax number a double ring pattern, make sure Double Rings is
selected as the Answer Ring Pattern setting. For information on
changing this setting, see change the answer ring pattern
(distinctive ringing)
on page 63.
Note that some ring patterns cannot be recognized by the
HP Officejet, such as those with alternating short and long ringing
patterns. If you are having problems with a ring pattern of this type,
ask your phone company to assign a non-alternating ring pattern.

Still can't get fax not to pick up when answering machine is connected.


if you have the fax-575 there should be a TAD setting.

This is the setting you would use if you're using an answering machine on the same phone line as your fax machine.

To set the Recieve Mode :

Press Recieve Mode. The LCD display shows your current selection.

Continue to press Recieve Mode until your new selection appears. After 2 seconds the screen returns to the date and time display, along with your new Recieve Mode setting.


The 4 Recieve modes are Fax Only, Fax/Tel, TAD:Answering Machine, Manual.

Hope this helps!!!

Fax not sending


It sounds like you have a problem with your phone line. If your machine has a reciever, pick it up or press the hook key. You want to listen to the dial tone. If there is any static in the line it will cause faxc problems. Also you can try disconnecting the fax and plugging in a standard phone into the wall jack. Make a phone call and aee if the line is clear or if there is static. If you do hear static in the line, first try replacing the phone line cord, from the wall to the fax, or phone. If that doesnt help then it is definatly a problem with the line and you must call the phone co. If the line is clear with the standard phone, and static with the fax reciever, or hook mode, then you may have a bad modem board in the fax. Let me know if I can be of further help! John
