Phone lines I have an HP officejet d135 I have 2 phone lines into the house but I cannot seperate them into seperate cables, ie if either number rings the fax machine answers. How can I get the fax to respond to only one of my phone numbers please? ie one number is only for phone and the other fax only.

If you don't care which line is used as the fax line, get an RJ-11 phone cable. It is wired for only 1) phone line . . . the RJ-14 is wired for 2) lines. You can tell the difference by looking carefully at the connector. The RJ-11 has two contacts and the RJ-14 has four. Whichever line is connected to the two center contacts at the wall will ring your fax.

You will have to split those telephone line from the incoming jack. There should be a pair of wires for each line already coming into the home. You will have to figure out which pair is which. You can look at you telephone punch board where the line enter you home to try and narrow down which pair of wires goes to which line. You should be able to install a jack to seperate out one line.

Good luck

I want to know how i can use my copy machine to a fax so i can use it for incoming or outgoing?


Install software
Make sure all cables plugged: phone cable, USB cable to computer

Send fax from computer:
- print your document to printer HP .... FAX

Send "traditional" fax:
- put your document into scanner input
- type phone number on HP Officejet keyboard
- push button "Send"

If your HP Officejet if connected to phone line, it reseiving faxes automatically.

Hope this helps

How do i find out the phone number for my dsl line so people can fax to me


Are you using Single line with 2 seperate no. for Telephone and Fax ? If so, You can contact the Telephone provider to check the Dedicated No. for Fax ( Usually Called as DRP [ Distinctive Ring Pattern ] or special no. on the same line )

There is a way to set this up on your printer. you have to set the DRP on printer under Fax Settings DRP.

Need to set up phone/fax instead of just fax


I have a HP Officejet J6480 All-In-One and needed the answering machine and fax to be on at the same time.  I called the help line at HP and they said I needed another phone line into the home but I tried this and it worked. 
First I got a different phone number for the fax machine - they do this for no charge at my phone company. This is not another physical line into the home - it is just another phone number with a different ring - it rings 2 fast rings for the fax machine instead of the phones regular one ring. I set the answering machine built into the phone to pick up after 4 rings and I set the fax machine to pick up on 2 rings. Be sure to set it so the fax pick up number of rings are less than the answering machine pick up number of rings.  It worked for me. Hope this works for you too.

HP 4110 OFFICEJET ALL IN ONE


Hi red,

You may need to set the fax as the default answerer of incoming calls. Here's a little tip, most local phone companies offer a distintive ring feature that only the fax will answer. If you get the option your users manual will tell you how to set up this feature and whats neat about is you get a seperate
number for that feature, your own dedicated fax line without add any extra outside lines.

Can't receive fax - fax rings 2ce then just stops / says phone off hook


Hi Iryan,

Instead of switch box, a more dependable option is to get a distinctive ring. Your local phone company offers this option. What's neat about is you get a seperate fax number. Its like having a dedicated fax line without adding extra lines to your service. I think the monthly fee is around 3 dollars a month for this feature, but, believe me its well worth it.

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.
