No matter whatido cant send fax keeps saying off the hook


Try unplugging other phones (from the phone jacks) that are on the same line. Also, remove any phone that is plugged in to the fax machine, if there is one attached. If that doesn't work, swap the phone cable on your all-in-one printer/fax with a different one. Lastly, try a different phone jack all together.

I can tell you I had the same problem with my fax/printer, and it ended up being a bad phone cable. It, the cable, worked fine with a handset, but not with the fax. Good luck.

Cannot receive faxes


The storm has likely damaged the phone line, or the ADSL microfilter (if you have one). Which is why it thinks a phone on the fax line is off the hook. Check your line for breaks and your ADSL filters for a blown filter.

I was given a Lexmark x4270 and all I want to do is use it as a fax machine. What do I need to do? Do I still have to hook it up to my computer or just the phone line?


You will just plug the phone line into the all-in-one. No need to connect it to your computer if your not going to use it to print. Once plugged into a phone line, use just like a fax machine.

My HP 7780 always says phone off hook. When I disconnect the phone line for awhile and reinstall it faxes once properly then the phone off hook message reappears.


I use a VOIP line and get the same error msg. Here's what I do- I dial the fax number with the line unplugged (hence no off-hook message), press "start Fax", and as soon as I hear the fax machine "Click" to pickup the line, I put the line in the machine. Works every time!

I have never hooked up my fax portion of the 6100 hp.


You should have a dedicated ANALOG phone line.

Hook phone cord from wall jack to LINE port of the fax machine.

Ready to fax.

CAN'T GET FAX WORKING.


If it's answering on your main number, then you are not plugged into the fax jack. You should have a separate phone jack for fax. If you have internet phone there should be a second jack on the back of your phone box. You can test that you have a functioning second line by plugging the fax into it and using the fax unit to dial your home number.

Can't receive fax - fax rings 2ce then just stops / says phone off hook


Hi Iryan,

Instead of switch box, a more dependable option is to get a distinctive ring. Your local phone company offers this option. What's neat about is you get a seperate fax number. Its like having a dedicated fax line without adding extra lines to your service. I think the monthly fee is around 3 dollars a month for this feature, but, believe me its well worth it.

6210 all in one printer


Phone off hook means to say that the printer is connected to a fax line and the fax line is in use. That message won't disappear until you disconnect the phone cable on the printer or no one is using the line for fax.
