Verify the phone line is being plugged into the correct jack, there are usually 2 - one for a phone and one to connect to your existing phone jack. See if your phone works when connected this way, if not then there is a problem with the jacks and/or internal modem in the fax.

My fax machine was working great up until this morning. I am able to send faxes but not receive them. The machine is hooked up to the phone jack and shares the line with our credit card machine. It is not...


It's entirely possible that your fax machine will just miraculously start working again. If it was hooked up to your computer you'd possibly be getting an error message, which when interpreted by its code number, would tell you it's not receiving the phone signals correctly for a period of time but soon will.

Hope I'm right,

Regards,

Sent a fax and report came back with result message"error 390" What does that mean? regards Lisa


Hi Lisa,
According to the HP manual, this error code is consistent with a communication error. in other words, the machine tried to send your fax, but could not get anywhere.
I would:
1. Turn off the printer, then turn it back on. send a test fax to another number, see if it works.
2. check where your phone line connects to the printer, and make sure the phone line is plugged in to the correct phone jack on the device. If it is, take it out, and put it back in. Test sending a fax again.
3. If this doesn't work, test your fax line. hook it up to a phone- see if you can hear a dial tone from it. If so, the line is active. If not, you may need to troubleshoot for a phone line problem, which your telephone provider can assist you with.
4. If the phone line is alright, but the printer still doesn't work- something could be internally wrong with the printer. Call HP for further support, and they will be able to assist you by getting it repaired.

Where do i plug the lines from my 6310 all in one into my modem


On the back lower right of the unit you will see two ports for regular phone lines and one port for en RJ-45 ethernet cable. The phone port are for a phone line to come into to accept faxes through a ground line. If you still have regular phone service, the line coming from the wall outlet goes into the port marked "line" on the back of the All-In-One. The other port on the back of the printer is for a phone line to hook into a portable phone, that way you can answer the phone if there is no fax. The other port, for the ethernet cable goes to the modem or router, however you happen to have it set up.

The phone line is correctly connected to the all-in-one but...


To be sure your phone is plugged in properly try picking up a different phone in your home with the fax also plugged into a phone line. The fax display should indicate "Phone off hook".
If the problem still persits, turn off the power to the printer/fax then turn it back on. This reboots the software and usually fixes the problem.

HP Officejet 6310 will no longer receive a fax, but can send one


Have you checked the online support guides to make sure your fax is connected properly. There is a lot to work through, but you should be able to test your setup and see if you can send faxes but not receive them. See links here, here, and here. Treat the credit card machine as if it were a telephone answering device or another phone on the line.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
