When I try to use the fax machine I am informed that transmission failed, What can I do to correct this problem

Check line is working by plugging in a phone or picking up the phone attached to the machine. Can you dial out? Does it ring of you dial in and does the fax machine pick up? Once you have established the line is working. Look in the fax machines menu and change the transmit protocols try something different. Start with turning off ECM or changing the speed or baud as it may be called to a slower setting.

Are you using a normal telephone line?

My answering machine (phone line) is picking up when I dial my fax number. How do I set my fax machine up so that it will pick up when I dial the fax number?

Either your fax machine is set to answer on more rings then your answering machine is or you dont have the automatic answer key pushed?

Determine how many rings your answering machine picks up on and then change the number of rings to a lower amount on your fax machine. To change the number of rings before picking up the line, press the "menu" key on the fax machine and use the up and down arrows to scroll until you find the "basic fax set up" or the "advanced set up" areas. I am not sure which one will have the number of rings setting. Try looking in both until you find it.

when you see it press "ok" or "enter" get in and change the amount of rings before answering. call your fax machine to make sure it picks up before your answering machine.

This should solve your problem.

I want to shut off answering machine

Use the Reception Mode button to set appropriate answering mode - press it repeatedly until a small arrow on the display will point to the desired option:

"TAD" - is the one you are using now, when the answering machine picks up the calls.

"TEL" - is the setting when no automatic pickup occurs, you always have to pick up the call and either talk (if there's a person on the other side), or press START to receive a fax (when you hear the fax beeps on the other side).

"FAX" - is the setting when after four rings the fax will pick the call up automatically (no answering machine). If you pick up the call manually after 1-2-3 rings (before the automatic pickup) you can either talk or START fax reception.

It's good to check from time to time if the reception mode is as you want it, it's easy to change it by mistake.

Good luck and come back with a testimonial if helped :)

I have one line with three numbers attached to it... one of them is a fax. I have set up distinctive ring, but the fax machine won't pick up on it's specific ring. I have tried them all. I can manually...

Hello Tiffany,

As far as I'm concerned, HP does not make Fax machines that work off of distinctive ring systems. They only work off of the number of rings before automatic pickup.

My recommendation is that you set the fax number to a dedicated line.

If you need more assistance for automatic pickup, I can guide you through setup, if you can give me the model of your fax machine.

Cannot receive faxes, but can send

I can send faxes from my HP Fax 1010, but cannot receive them. I can dial the number from another phone but it will keep ringing and the machine never picks up. We have tested the phone line and all seems well. Is there some setting on the fax machine itself that I need to change in order to receive? Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Changing the amount of rings

Pick the phone up earlier it will stop ringing......:-)

To set the number of rings-to-answer
To set or change the number of rings-to-answer, use the following steps:
1. On the all-in-one control panel, press Menu.
2. Use the < or the > button to select Fax setup, and then press tick
3. Use the < or the > button to select Fax Recv. setup, and then press tick
4. Use the < or the > button to select Rings to answer, and then press tick
5. Use the alphanumeric buttons to enter the number of rings-to-answer, and then press tick

But I still think picking up the phone earlier would be easier

Your Manual, please rate as fixya or post back
