You need to set your machine to AUTO.

Try uplugging the power cord for 10 seconds.

My fax machine will send faxes but not receive them. I have made sure it is plugged in and connected but no faxes will come through. Please Help!


If you have an answering machine, have it answer at three rings. Have the fax answer at five rings. Let the answer machine go thru it's cycle, and see if the fax picks up.

I can only receive faxes not send when i try to send it just keeps ringing will not transmit


If you dial a number and just hear ringing that means the other end is not answering. Even if a person or answering machine picked up the ringing would stop. The problem is at the other end.

Receiving Problem


Do you have a DSL or any other digital phone line?

Are you set to "AUTO RECEIVE" ?

Call the fax machine from a regular phone and listen for fax tones.

Cannot receive faxes, but can send


Hello,
I can send faxes from my HP Fax 1010, but cannot receive them. I can dial the number from another phone but it will keep ringing and the machine never picks up. We have tested the phone line and all seems well. Is there some setting on the fax machine itself that I need to change in order to receive? Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Won't receive fax


Reset RING DELAY so that machine picks up on 1st ring, and does not disconnect before fax can be sent to you.
