Will the fax know if it's a phone call or a fax?

I would like to switch to having only one designated phone line and I want to know if the fax will know the difference between a call or a fax and how can I set this up. Right now it has it's own designated line.

Can canon mf4370 fax on dsl line


Fax machine operation can be interrupted by DSL lines, however, because the DSL signal is also transmitted through phone wiring. This can result in a loss of data in the fax if steps are not taken to prevent it. Fortunately, this is not a difficult thing to fix.


Items you will need

  • DSL filter
Step 1

Unplug the fax machine from the phone jack.
Step 2

Plug your DSL filter into the phone jack. DSL filters are specifically designed to eliminate interference from the DSL line on your phone line.
Step 3

Plug the fax machine into the phone line jack on the DSL filter. You can now use your fax machine and DSL line at the same time without risk of data loss or interference.

First try one step. The line which you have connected with the Fax, unplug any other phone from that line.
Call that number and see whether it rings or you get a fax tone.

Hi irwinbadin,

HP fax products are designed so that other telephone equipment can be connected on the same line as the fax. The unit must be connected first using a two-conductor fax/phone cable like the one that shipped with the HP product. Using a four-conductor telephone cable may cause problems receiving faxes or calls.

There are two different types of phone cables. There are two-conductor phone cables like what originally shipped with the HP fax product and there are four-conductor cables. HP fax products are designed to work with a two-conductor phone cable. Look at the end of the cable and verify that it has only two copper leads or wires. Replace any four-conductor cables with a two-conductor cable. Only two-conductor phone cables should be used to connect the all-in-one to the phone line.

Figure 1: The difference between a two-conductor phone cable and a four-conductor phone cable

Step one: Connect the phone line to the fax
The fax will have two or three sockets (or jacks) for phone lines. Some of these may have a removable plastic plug in them. These sockets will be labeled with text, To Wall Jack , or with a graphic of the wall jack. See Figure 1 below.

Plug the two-conductor telephone cable that came with the HP product into the telephone wall jack. Then, plug it into this socket as shown below.

In areas with above ground telephone lines and electrical storms (lightning), it is a good idea to purchase a telephone line surge suppressor and connect it between the telephone wall jack and the fax. This will help prevent damage to the fax from a lightning-caused power surge on the phone line.

Step two: Add other phone-line devices
To connect other telephone devices, use the other socket (or sockets) on the fax. These are identified by text or with a graphic of a telephone and/or computer.

Connect a caller ID unit between the fax and the telephone.
Use the information below that matches the devices you need to connect.

Fax and telephone
Connect a single-line telephone to one of the added sockets on the fax. The telephone will share the same phone line as the fax. See the illustration below.

Fax, answering machine, and telephone
When a telephone answering machine and telephone are connected, connect the answering machine to the fax and then connect the telephone to the answering machine as shown below.

Fax and computer modem
To use a fax and a computer modem on the same phone line, connect the fax to the computer modem. The modem socket on the computer may be labeled Line or Wall jack .

reyjoshua07_9.jpg


Fax, computer modem, and telephone
To use a computer modem and a telephone with the fax, connect the computer modem to the fax. Then, connect the telephone into the second phone line connector on the computer modem or the third fax socket (if it is available). The image below shows how to connect a computer and a telephone to a fax with two sockets.

Fax, modem, answering machine, and telephone
The image below shows how to connect a computer modem, answering machine, and telephone to a fax. Connect the computer modem to the fax, then connect the answering machine to the computer, and finally, connect the telephone to the answering machine.
If the fax has three phone line sockets instead of two, some of the devices can be connected to the other phone socket on the fax.

How could I switch the fax, to receive


do you mean the fax line is shared with the phone line, and you want the machine to pick up faxes when necessary, and let phone calls go? If that's the case, this mahcine is designed to be on a dedicated line. In other words, there is not setting for "distinctive ring", or to set the # of rings to pick up. It will answer any call coming in. The only thing you can do is set it to "manual receive", under "user tools", "fax features", and then you could use it for sending faxes, but it will not receive unless you switch it to fax, and press the "on hook" button.

Ricoh 1013F Fax Line answering phone calls


Not quite sure the Ricoh has what is commonly none as a fax switch. This actually catches the call and looks for the fax tone from the sending fax to determine if it is a fax or not. The Ricoh can not determeine what number is dialing in. It only knows a call is incoming.

You can ourchase a fax switch online or Radio shack had them.

Fax won't answer


Fax machines are designed to work on a dedicated line, any other configuration is a **** shoot.

Buy a 2 port phone line adapter and plug it into the LINE port of the fax, it MIGHT work.

Fax one phone/fax line but always answered by fax


You can change the number of rings before the fax machine can pick up. Three is usually a good number. You would have to pickup the phone on the first two rings.

They make devices that do that but everytime I have used them I would end up getting the fax tone when I'm trying to make a voice. The boxes are great at dealing with incomming phone calls from pstn or land line based calls, but if you are getting cell phone calls or voice calls comming in from digital, DSL, or VOIP lines, it has a hard time sensing voice from fax when people are using phones like that. There designed for analog phone line installation but if you're on a DSL they won't work.
