Can't use FAX feature on Kodak 5500 AIO

I have VOIP from Comcast (which is digital) and my Kodak AIO 5500 has an analog FAX built in.

How/where can I acquire a device that will convert the digital VOIP to analog phone so that I can use the FAX feature of my AIO?

8860 wont send or recieve fax on cable modem


Fax machines usually only work over regular phone lines, not through digital cable or DSL systems. If your phone is a VOIP phone, it is a digital system and your fax will not work. It needs to be plugged into the Plain Old Telephone System (POTS) which is an analog system.

How do i connect the fax for my officejet 5510. i use comcast modem for my phone. thanks.


Greetings - Your Officejet was made to fax over an old fashioned analog phone line (POTS) but you're using VOIP phone service (over the internet) which in inherently incompatible. VOIP fax works with some internet providers but apparently not comcast. But it still may be doable.
I recommend you call Comcast tech support to see if they can help you. Maybe something has changed.
There is a good discussion about this issue where some people have it working here:

Hi, I need to connect my comSwitch 5500 to the Cable/internet/VOIP. Command Communications ComSwitch 5500 is a Telephone Line Sharing system- (automatic phone/Fax Switch) sold under the following...


I'm not one hundred percent sure on this, but it does look like you need a separate phone line since VOIP revolves around using your internet as a gateway for making phone calls. And since majority of VOIP uses ethernet connections, or wireless, there is no phone line to use.

Would like to connect a fax but only port 1 or (tel 1) port 2 does not work, should i send back to comcast or reset modem


There is nothing wrong with your modem. Comcast charges extra for a second line. Depending on your model of fax machine, there should be both an input ond an output on the back of the fax machine. Plug the fax machine into line 1 on the modem. Then, plug your phone into the input on the back of the fax machine. If you fax does not have both in and out, then you can purchase a "Y" phone line adapter from your local electronics store.

ps. VoIP is a digital line... Facsimiles are analog signals... Sending analog signals over digital lines is not recomended. If you are wondering "why?" (and understand tech jargon) VoIP is sent via UDP, which is a connectionless protocol (does not retransmit dropped packets) Fax machines use TCP, which does resend dropped packets. This variance in Qualiy of Service sometimes cases strange activity such as both lines (sending and receiving) dropping connections, faxes taking a long time to transmit (due to constant resending loops), etc. It does work... kind of. I would just not assume that faxes made it to their destination until it gets confirmed.

Adding a phone to a fax / printer.


Now for the worst question- your telus is giving you a VoIP for your phone? In other words, you have a digital phone line service? If so, you'll hate this- fax machines don't work over digital lines. My department is moving into a new building and we have to have the regular dialup lines installed for our fax machines only. I never knew this myself until about 2 weeks ago. If I'm wrong about your VoIP, let me know.

Disconnected a lot!


Restart your computer. The AiO software will show "connected" on the main window, and you will be able to scan, corpy, etc. Once you close (x out) of the AiO software, then open it up again, the "disconnected" error shows up. The only way to use the AiO software once again is to (you guessed it) RESTART the computer. George Elvidge in NS

Sending faxes


I believe if you have comcast it is a different signal coming in, you probably bought the package for VOIP capability when Comcast was having that promotion. The phone has to be a regular analog phone line not digital, that is probably your problem. Try changing the settings or line it should solve your problem, or call Comcast to guide you along.

Sending a fax by DSL requires one of two methods: 1. You obtain a DSL line filter suitable for connecting a standard voice telephone to the DSL line, then connect an analog fax modem to the line through the line filter. 2. You hire an Internet E-faxing service. See · http://www.slipstick.com/addins/services/fax.htm#internetfax · http://www.slipstick.com/addins/services/fax.htm · http://www.savetz.com/fax Tim
