Peoplel are sending me very imp. faxes and idk how to recive it..


If your printer has FAX capabilities. Good way to tell is if you have a phone number pad on the front of your printer.

You must have this connected to a phone line for it to receive a fax.
Setup the fax application through your installation CD that came with the Printer/fax machine. Often you set the fax machine to pick up after so many rings. This allows you to leave the printer/fax machine on and gives you time to answer BEFORE the fax machine does. If uncle Bob or Aunt Susie should call to say Hi!

Basically what is happening:
You turn on the Printer/Fax machine it sits idle waiting for a phone call.
Someone now sends you a fax using your phone number.
YOUR printer/fax machine is sitting there listening for the phone to ring.
Lets say you have your printer/fax machine setup to answer after 5 rings.
After 5 rings, your Printer/fax machine will pick up and listen for signal tones from the the other machine. If it gets these, it will "handshake" and send a confirmation fax tone. Then the data will be transferred and printed out on your machine or held in a fax program for you to print or save later.

It is critical that you do not pickup the phone too early or the two fax machines trying to communicate will fail.
If you do this, you will hear an awful squeal and a serious of tones.
You can often hang up quickly and the two machines will transmit again the handshake signals and resume business as usual.

Short answer:
Two fax modems are talking to each other over your phone line to transmit data.

Good luck!
and hope this is helpful.

I am not reciving faxes, the line rings, the screen says connecting but nothing happens, the sender continues to hear repeated ringing ???


Do you have the cable that goes from the back of the fax machine to the phone line plugged into the correct port at the back?

Most devices that have phone connectivity typically have 2 ports on them a line and a phone port - the cable needs to be plugged into the line port to operate correctly - try putting the cable into the other port on the back of the MFD

Don't know how to set for receiving phone calls and faxes on my all in one


Wat I always do, is set it for fax only,and the incomming must be on and set ringcount to 8 times.You will never loose a fax and 8 rings give you time to get to the phone.

Cant recive fax


Ok - phone off hook is a message on the printer because you are on the phone. There is a phone that is up somewhere in your home that it can recognize. You cannot send a fax or receive and be on the phone at the same time. This can also be caused by credit card machines, internet service (filter needs to be on fax line), and other fax machines.

To the original poster - your question is fairly vague. This hp link solves the most common issues when you can send but not receive.
