    Hi C, thanks for that. I have two different phone numbers. One for my landline and one for the fax machine. When I try and send myself a fax from work, it just rings & rings then the answerphone on the landline switches on. I have the fax number in the 'properties' of the fax, but I just don't know where I'm going wrong. Cheers Karen

Define stand alone: if u want it to have its own line, you'll need to either set up a seperate line from the phone box to the fax machine (through the phone company) OR get a distinctive ring for the phone (phone rings from the Telephone company can be rung in a variety of ways, not just the standard "two longs"- by varying the rings to the office AND by having the fax machine listen for its distinctive ring and having it answer only that.

hope that helps.

    1) Are the phone numbers assigned to the same set of lines (phone jacks) in the house? Usually, one number will go to one set of lines, the other to the other. The fax machine should be on the line assigned to that particular number. (Note: if both numbers ring into the same line, you may have a wire crossed somewhere in a line or phone jack.)
    2) Is the fax set to auto answer or Manual answer?
    3) SOME fax machines have a discrete answering machine built into them also. It's rare, but I've seen that happen as well. That should be turned off also (I've never understood why they build answering machines into fax systems, but they've never asked me, either ).

How to hook up fax on HP C7280


The C7280 can be used as a stand-alone fax machine. All you need to hook up to the printer is a telephone line. Connect the phone line to the jack marked "1-Line" on the rear panel, below the power supply connector. If you want, you can connect an extension phone to the jack marked "2-Ext". The line connection is for a standard telephone line. Once the line is connected, faxing is pretty much the same as it is on any fax machine. Put your documents face up in the feeder on top, or for a single sheet, face down on the scanner glass. Press the "Fax menu" button on the control panel and you'll be asked for the number. Enter the number from the keypad and then press the "Start fax black" or "Start fax color" color button to send the fax. Other than the phone line, there isn't anything else you need to hook up.

You can download the manual from HP if you need it for reference. It explains how to use the special features of the fax machine, like broadcast faxing, memory dialing, printing fax reports, etc.

Where to plug in the phone line for the fax


You don't plug a phone line into this printer. It's not a fax machine itself. According to the user's guide (which you can download here), "To send a fax using this printer, you need to have the printer attached to a computer that is equipped with a modem and has Microsoft Fax installed."

What this means is that the printer is just serving as the input (scanner) and output (printer) parts of a stand-alone scanner, but you need your computer to connect to the phone line. Without the computer modem and Microsoft Fax software, your printer is, well, just a printer, with scanning capability.

Sorry! Thanks for using Fixya.

I can not send faxes


Make sure the line is active by using a regular phone if its a stand alone fax an not a network fax.

If its a network fax make sure that the IP address it is using is active which can be done by running a ping test.

I have changed from a 2 line phone system to a 1 line. I am still using the same 2 line wireless telephone/answering machine. The telephone will only work for outgoing calls and not for incoming. The HP...


I just bought a used hp 3200se and am trying to use it as a stand alone fax. It (so far) does not answer incoming calls. I found that I can manually answer a fax call and then the machine seems to work fine.
I tried connecting to ...oh, by the way, I have digital phone service from Comcast, an analog line and it seems to work fine. So maybe the 6310xi is the same or maybe there are setting to deal with a digital line. Maybe something in this will help.

Can a Lexmark X4270 be used as a stand alone copier and fax without being hooked to the computer?


Absolutely! The only thing needed for use as a fax is being plugged into a live phone line. These are specifically designed for just that purpose so the computer does not have to be left running while fax machine and copier remain on in the office. Mainly so the office can shut down the computer when not needed to save power when not needed. Ex. to receive faxes at night when the office is closed. You only need to leave the printer on and it will function as a stand alone copier fax machine. The computer is only required when you want to print a document or scan a page and save it. I hope this fully answers your question.
If you have others feel free to ask.

No phone service, no dial tone


First check the line with a stand alone phone.

If you have dial tone on the other phone. Plug the fax and make sure it is the line socket not the EXT socket otherwise you will have the same problem.

Other than that it is possible while the line was being worked there was a power surge on the line and it has caused the communications (modem, NCU) board to fail. In which case you will have to take it to a service agent.
