    The answering machine must be on the same phone line as the
    all-in-one.

    The answering machine must answer the call FIRST before the
    All-In-One.

    The number of rings to answer for the All-In-One should be GREATER than the number of rings to answer for the answering machine.

    Set the number of rings before answering You can specify how many rings should occur before your HP all-in-one automatically answers the incoming call. Note This setting only applies if your HP all-in-one is set to receive faxes automatically. The Rings to Answer setting is important if you have an answering machine on the same phone line as your HP all-in-one. The answering machine must answer the call before your HP all-in-one. The number of rings to answer for the HP all-in-one should be greater than the number of rings to answer for the answering machine. For example, set your answering machine to answer in 4 rings and your HP all-in-one to answer in the maximum number of rings supported by your device. (The maximum number of rings varies by country/region.) In this setup, the answering machine will answer the call and the HP all-in-one will monitor the line. If the HP all-in-one detects fax tones, the HP all-in-one will receive the fax. If the call is a voice call, the answering machine will record the incoming message.

    follow this procedure to test your fax set up

    Test your fax setup You can test your fax setup to check the status of your HP all-in-one and to make sure it is set up properly for faxing. Perform this test after you have completed setting up your HP all-in-one for faxing. The test does the following: Checks the fax hardware Verifies that the phone cord is plugged into the correct port Checks for a dial tone Checks for an active phone line Checks the status of your phone line connection The HP all-in-one prints a report with the results of the test. If the test fails, review the report for information on how to fix the problem and rerun the test. To test your fax setup from the control panel
    1 Set up your HP all-in-one for faxing according to the setup instructions in this chapter.
    2 Make sure you have inserted the print cartridges and loaded paper before starting the test. For more information, see Replace the print cartridges and Load full-size paper.
    3 Press Setup.
    4 Press 6, then press 5. This selects the Tools menu and then selects Run Fax Test.


    thanks.

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 ).

HP L7650 will not auto answer incoming faxes


To set the answer mode to manual or automatic via the control panel

? Press Auto Answer to turn the light on or off, as appropriate for your setup.

When the Auto Answer light is on, the device answers calls automatically. When

the light is off, the it does not answer calls.

To set the answer mode to manual or automatic via the embedded Web server

1. Open the embedded Web server, click the Settings tab, click Fax in the left pane,

and then click the Basic sub-tab.

2. Select On or Off in the Auto Answer drop-down menu in the Other Basic Fax

Settings section.

Set the number of rings before answering

If you turn on the Auto Answer setting, you can specify how many rings occur before

incoming calls are automatically answered.

The Rings to Answer setting is important if you have an answering machine on the

same phone line as the device, because you want the answering machine to answer

the phone before the device does. The number of rings to answer for the device

should be greater than the number of rings to answer for the answering machine.

For example, set your answering machine to a low number of rings and the device to

answer in the maximum number of rings. (The maximum number of rings varies by

country/region.) In this setup, the answering machine answers the call and the device

monitors the line. If the device detects fax tones, it receives the fax. If the call is a

voice call, the answering machine records the incoming message.

To set the number of rings before answering via the control panel

1. Press Setup.

2. Press Basic Fax Setup, and then press Rings to Answer.

3. Enter the appropriate number of rings by using the keypad, or press the left or right

arrow button to change the number of rings.

4. Press OK to accept the setting.

To set the number of rings before answering via the embedded Web server

and then click the Basic sub-tab.

Settings
section.
