Yes, if it's not a DSL or digital phone line. Plug the phone cord into the LINE port of the fax machine.

Hi my hp 640 will not answer a fax call, but will answer only if we pick up the hand set.


Issue When the all-in-one product is sharing a phone line with voice calls, some calls are interrupted by fax tones. Follow the steps below to solve the problem.Step one: Check the Rings to Answer setting If Auto Answer is enabled, the HP fax product will answer the phone line when the number of rings reaches the number of rings specified in the Rings-to-Answer setting. When voice calls will be received on the same phone line as faxes, set to rings-to-answer to 6. If you do not want the fax to answer automatically, either turn off Auto Answer from the front panel and receive faxes manually (this may result in lost faxes) or subscribe to a distinctive ring service from the phone company (if available). Refer to the Answering faxes manually section below to learn how to answer faxes manually or refer to the Using distinctive ringing section below for more information about using distinctive ringing. The Rings-to-answer setting for the HP Officejet 500 and 600 series products can only be checked or set using the all-in-one software on the computer. The Rings-to-answer setting for the HP Officejet 500 and 600 series products can only be checked or set using the all-in-one software on the computer. Follow the steps below to check or change the setting for all models except the HP Officejet 500 and 600 series:
  1. Depending on the model, press either Menu , Setup , or Fax Setup repeatedly until Basic Fax Setup appears in the display.
  2. Press Enter (or Start or OK ).
  3. Press the right arrow button repeatedly until Rings to Answer is displayed, and then press Enter .
  4. The number of rings before the HP fax product answers will be displayed.
    • The setting is correct if it is 6. Press Cancel or Stop (Stop Fax) to exit the menu.
    • If the number is not 6, press the right arrow button until 6 appears in the display and then press Enter (or Start or OK ).

How do i connect my hp 1240 fax\printer to my computer


The fax must be connected directly to the wall phone jack. Connect any other phone line devices, such as a telephone or answering machine, to the phone jack on the back of the fax


The phone line cable used to connect the fax must be a two-conductor (wire) phone cable, like the one that shipped with the fax. The fax may fail to send or receive faxes if the phone cable has more than two conductors. To determine how many conductors the phone cable has, look at the end of the cable. Most phone cable connectors are clear and you can see the number of wires

The Rings to Answer setting determines how many times the line will ring before the fax answers. Follow the steps below to change the rings to answer setting.
  1. Press Setup , press 3 , and then press 3 again to access the Rings to Answer setting.
  2. Press the Right Arrow to scroll through the available settings. When the desired number of rings is shown in the display, press OK .


To receive faxes manually, follow the steps below.

  1. Answer the phone like you normally would a telephone call. If the incoming call is from a fax machine, you will hear beeps or fax tones.
  2. Press either Start Black or Start Color to begin receiving the fax.
  3. Hang up the phone.

I Have HPofficejet 5510.some pages fax while some do not. I get communication error message. Please help


Sounds like some bad copper wire somewhere:

Try replacing the telephone wire between the fax machine and the wall.
If you have dsl, make sure the fax phone wire is plugged into a filter.
Try setting the fax machine to transmitreceive at a slower speed.
This could indicate a problem with your phone wires. Is there static on your phone line?
Maybe give your telephone company a call and have them check the line(s).

Hope this helps!

Fax machine


1)Disconnect the power cord from the rear of the HP Fax machine.
2)Verify that the phone cable is fully inserted into the fax machine. If your model has a removable Line Interface Unit (LIU) where the phone line plugs into, verify that it is securely snapped in place.
3)If the HP Fax model belongs to the HP Officejet R80 Series , verify that the cable which goes from the Automatic Document Feeder assembly to the rear of the HP All-in-One base is connected.
4)Reconnect the power cord.After the fax reinitializes and it is ready, try to send and receive faxes again.

This sounds like you have smart ring on your home line. Smart ring lets you have 2 seperate telephone numbers, One for fax and another for phone, but 2 distinctive rings all one one line. Check your manual to see if you have this feature and to set it up.
