Cannot receive a FAX but can send FAX on a HP Photosmart C7180 All-in-One


are you using the same line for fax and phone???
are you using a Telephone Answeing machine or a Voice Mail??
However you can follow the following steps


1. Press the power button to turn off the HP fax product.
2. Wait for 20 seconds, and then press the power button to turn on the HP fax product, and then connect one end of a two-wire telephone cord to the telephone jack and the other end of the cord to the port labeled 1-Line on the back of the HP fax product.
3. Make sure that there is plain white paper in the input tray.
4. Press the Setup button on the product Control Panel.
5. Press the down arrow to select Tools, and then press OK.
6. On the Tools menu, press the down arrow to select "Run Fax Test", and then press OK. The Fax diagnostic test prints.
7. Review the report.
If the test lists faxing issues and solutions, the fax test failed.
Try the steps on the printout to troubleshoot the issue as the report is specific to your product and faxing environment.
Repeat the fax test after fixing the listed faxing issues to make sure the test passes. Try to receive a fax.
Okay, next, we need to make sure that the Auto Answer feature is turned on by following the steps below:
When the Auto Answer feature is on, the HP fax product automatically answers incoming fax calls. When off, the HP fax product does not answer any incoming fax calls.
1. Press the Setup button on the product Control Panel.
2. Press the down arrow to select Basic Fax Setup, and then press OK.
3. On the Basic Fax Setup menu, press the down arrow to select Auto Answer, and then press OK.
4. Press the down arrow to select On, and then press OK.
5. Try to receive a fax.
Since the issue persists, the problem could be due to some conflicting telephone services.
The following telephone company services might block or interfere with incoming faxes:
Distinctive Ring Service: A distinctive ring service, if it is available from the telephone service provider, often resolves this issue.
* Voice mail: It is possible to use the fax in manual receive mode while using a voice mail service. For manual receive mode, turn off auto answer and press "Start Fax Black" or "Start Fax Color" on the control panel before the voice mail picks up the line to start receiving the fax.
* Call waiting: Do not use a call waiting service on the same line connected to the fax machine. The click sound caused by an incoming call can cause the fax to fail.
* Privacy block
* Security screen
* Anonymous call rejection
* Privacy manager
* Any other service that screens or intercepts incoming calls
If any of these services are on the telephone line connected to the HP fax product, contact the telephone service provider for its recommended solution.
After addressing any existing conflicting telephone services, try to receive a fax.
Try contacting telephone people
try changing the settings below
1. Press the Setup button on the product Control Panel.
2. Press the down arrow to select Advanced Fax Setup, and then press OK.
3. Use the down arrow to select Fax Speed, and then press OK.
4. Use the down arrow to select Medium, and then press OK.
5. Try to receive a fax again. If the HP fax still cannot receive a fax, try lowering the fax speed even further
Next, change the "Rings to Answer" setting on the HP fax by following the steps below:
1. Press the Setup button on the product Control Panel.
2. Press the right arrow key to select Basic Fax Setup, and then press the OK button.
3. Press the down arrow to select Rings to Answer, and then press OK.
4. Use down arrow to select the desired number of rings, and then press OK. you cn change the rings to answer to 6 if your telephone answering machine picks up the call after 4 rings.
Try to receive a fax.
If the HP fax still cannot receive a fax, change the following steps
1. Press the Setup button on the product Control Panel.
2. Use the down arrow to select Advanced Fax Setup, and then press OK.
3. Use the down arrow to select Error Correction Mode, and then press OK.
4. Use the down arrow key to select Off, and then press OK.
1. Plug the telephone cord directly into the telephone jack and not through any other device.
2. If present, remove any splitters or other devices attached to the line, except for a DSL filter.
3. If the telephone cord is over 3 m (10 ft) long, move the fax closer to the telephone jack, and then use a cord 3 m (10 ft) long or shorter.
4. Connect the other end of the telephone cord directly to the back of the HP fax product into the port labeled 1-Line.
5. If other devices such as, telephone answering machines or computer modems, are attached to the telephone line, remove them. If devices attached to other extensions of the same telephone line are present, remove them for this test.
6. Try to receive a fax.
If removing telephone devices and connections allows the HP fax product to receive faxes, this indicates interference from one or more of the removed devices. Interference can be caused by incompatibility or by using too many other telephone devices at once. Telephone devices can be added back but test after adding each to make sure that they do not start to interfere again.
If the HP fax product still cannot receive a fax after removing other devices, continue with the following steps:
7. If a DSL filter is needed on the telephone line, change the DSL filter and then try to receive a fax. If the HP fax product still cannot receive a fax, proceed to step 8.
8. If a new telephone cord has not been tried, change the telephone cord to a new two-wire telephone cord, and then try to receive a fax again.
Try to receive a fax.
if it does not resolve then perform the following steps
1. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product.
2. Wait for 20 seconds, and then press and hold # and 6 on the product Control Panel.
3. Connect the power cord to the back of the product and then release the buttons when the product turns on.
4. The product resets to factory defaults.
Try to receive a fax.
As a last step, test in another location by following the steps below:
If possible, move the HP fax product to another location with a separate telephone line (another house for instance).
Try to receive a fax at that location, and if you are able to receive faxes from the changed location, then your telephone line should be tested.
If it resolves well and good if it does not then service the printer

Cannot receive faxes on Canon Pixma MX870, but can send faxes


I was searching for an answer to this to make sure my new MX870 is correctly set to receive faxes. Here's one answer I came across:

First set Tel-Priority, turn off incoming ring, turn on manual/auto switch, then check how many seconds it takes for your answering machine to come on, and set it a couple of seconds after that. This should do the trick.

I can send faxes from my HP J3640 but I can't receive them. The instructions mention turning on "auto-answer", but there is no button or nothing in the menu for "auto-answer". How do I turn on auto-answer?

    • If the test does not show faxing issues and solutions, the fax test passed. Continue to the next solution.
Solution two: Test the receiving function Follow these steps to make sure the receiving function works correctly.
  1. Makesure the originator of the fax has the correct fax number for yourproduct, and then ask that person to send a test fax to your product.Watch the control panel display and listen to the sounds the productmakes.
  2. Review the results of the receiving function test:
    • If the product receives the fax correctly, you resolved the issue. You do not need to continue troubleshooting.

Receiving a fax


Faxes fail intermittently or with only one fax number
  • If static is present on the phone line, fax communication may fail. Have the phone line checked and serviced by the telephone company (or have the other party check their line). Phone line quality is the most common reason for intermittent fax failures. Some older locations and buildings have inadequate phone system wiring.
  • If you are trying to send a color fax and it fails, try sending the same machine a black and white fax. Normally the fax will detect that the other fax is not color capable and will offer you the option to send the fax as black and white but this might not always be the case. Do not send color faxes unless you know the other fax machine is capable of receiving color faxes.
  • Check the phone cable from the wall jack to the fax. It should not be coiled or longer than necessary. Coiling the cable can cause cross talk or echo on the line. Signal strength and quality can be lost with long cables.
  • Make sure the phone cable routing (and any cables not plugged into the same jack but sharing the same line) is not near any electrical appliances (electric motors, fans, kitchen appliances, or televisions). Many of these devices do not have sufficient electrical shielding and can induce electro-magnetic force (EMF) onto the phone line. Computers are usually shielded sufficiently and do not cause this problem.
  • Do not use a call-waiting service on the same line connected to the fax machine. The click sound caused by an incoming call can cause the fax to fail.
  • You can block certain faxes on some models. Verify that the telephone number of the sending fax is not blocked in the faxing software. This is usually located in the Fax History.
