Can send but not receive faxes.

I have been trying to get our HP 3180 fax working. I can send faxes but get a connection failure when I try to receive. The only way it works is to turn off the answering machine on the phone. The fax is on a line with a filter for DSL. Our answering machine is a Vtech integrated phone/answering machine. I currently have the fax set on answering machine and set to pick up after six rings. The answering machine is set to pick up after 4 rings. I also made the message the recommended length and left a few seconds of silence at the end. I have contacted HP but just get the manual fed back to me, which I have already read.

    Our phone line is actually a standard line and we receive DSL for our computer over it, through the phone company. We had another fax before this, while subscribing to DSL, and had no problem sending or receiving faxes but went to the HP because of ink cartridges instead of film and having a better built product.

    We just recently hooked up a HP officejet 9210 all in one. Unfortunately, we can't find the manual and I spent 30 min. on the phone with HP. They couldn't help but tried to sell me a cd. When I asked the cost they said "they didn't know!".

    We can send a fax.....but can't receive one. The machine is on a dedicated line.

    How do I know what type phone line it is? We had a fax there before which worked fine. Machine just died so we had to replace it.

My faxes will not receive because of communication errors


Hi,

Scenario 1

In the HP Solution Center, click Settings, point to Fax Settings & Setup,
and then click Fax Setup Wizard.

After you have connected the phone cord to the port labeled 1-LINE, run the
fax test again to make sure it passes and the HP All-in-One is ready for faxing.
Try to send or receive a test fax.
Make sure you use the phone cord that came with the HP All-in-One. If you
do not use the supplied phone cord to connect from the telephone wall jack
to the HP All-in-One, you might not be able to send or receive faxes. After
you plug in the phone cord that came with the HP All-in-One, run the fax test
again.
If you are using a phone splitter, this can cause faxing problems. (A splitter is
a two-cord connector that plugs into a telephone wall jack.) Try removing the
splitter and connecting the HP All-in-One directly to the telephone wall jack.

Scenario 2

If you are not using a distinctive ring service, check to make sure that the
Distinctive Ring feature on the HP All-in-One is set to All Rings. For
information, see Change the answer ring pattern for distinctive ringing.
? If Auto Answer is set to Off, you will need to receive faxes manually;
otherwise, the HP All-in-One will not receive the fax. For information on
receiving faxes manually, see Receive a fax manually.
? If you have a voice mail service at the same phone number you use for fax
calls, you must receive faxes manually, not automatically. This means that
you must be available to respond in person to incoming fax calls. For
information on setting up the HP All-in-One when you have a voice mail
service, see Fax setup. For information on receiving faxes manually, see
Receive a fax manually.
? If you have a computer dial-up modem on the same phone line with the
HP All-in-One, check to make sure that the software that came with your
modem is not set to receive faxes automatically. Modems that are set up to
receive faxes automatically take over the phone line to receive all incoming
faxes, which prevents the HP All-in-One from receiving fax calls.

Note Some digital answering machines might not retain the
recorded silence at the end of your outgoing message. Play back
your outgoing message to check.
If the HP All-in-One shares the same phone line with other types of phone
equipment, such as an answering machine, a computer dial-up modem, or a
multi-port switch box, the fax signal level might be reduced. The signal level
can also be reduced if you use a splitter or connect extra cables to extend
the length of your phone. A reduced fax signal can cause problems during
fax reception.
To find out if other equipment is causing a problem, disconnect everything
except the HP All-in-One from the phone line, and then try to receive a fax. If
you can receive faxes successfully without the other equipment, one or more
pieces of the other equipment is causing problems; try adding them back one
at a time and receiving a fax each time, until you identify which equipment is
causing the problem.

If you have an answering machine on the same phone line with the HP All-in-
One, you might have one of the following problems:
- Your answering machine might not be set up properly with the HP All-in-
One.
- Your outgoing message might be too long or too loud to allow the HP All-
in-One to detect fax tones, and the sending fax machine might
disconnect.
- Your answering machine might not have enough quiet time after your
outgoing message to allow the HP All-in-One to detect fax tones. This
problem is most common with digital answering machines.
The following actions might help solve these problems:
- When you have an answering machine on the same phone line you use
for fax calls, try connecting the answering machine directly to the HP All-
in-One as described in Fax setup.
- Make sure the HP All-in-One is set to receive faxes automatically. For
information on setting up the HP All-in-One to receive faxes
automatically, see Set the answer mode.
- Make sure the Rings to Answer setting is set to a greater number of
rings than the answering machine. For more information, see Set the
number of rings before answering.
- Disconnect the answering machine and then try receiving a fax. If faxing
is successful without the answering machine, the answering machine
might be causing the problem.
- Reconnect the answering machine and record your outgoing message
again. Record a message that is approximately 10 seconds in duration.
Speak slowly and at a low volume when recording your message. Leave
at least 5 seconds of silence at the end of the voice message. There
should be no background noise when recording this silent time. Try to
receive a fax again.

Scenario 3

The HP All-in-One might be dialing too fast or too soon. You might need to
insert some pauses in the number sequence. For example, if you need to
access an outside line before dialing the phone number, insert a pause
following the access number. If your number is 95555555, and 9 accesses
an outside line, you might insert pauses as follows: 9-555-5555. To enter a
pause in the fax number you are typing, press Redial/Pause, or press the
Space (#) button repeatedly, until a dash (-) appears on the display.
You can also send the fax using monitor dialing. This enables you to listen to
the phone line as you dial. You can set the pace of your dialing and respond
to prompts as you dial. For more information, see Send a fax using monitor
dialing.
? The number you entered when sending the fax is not in the proper format or
the receiving fax machine is having problems. To check this, try calling the
fax number from a telephone and listen for fax tones. If you cannot hear fax
tones, the receiving fax machine might not be turned on or connected, or a
voice mail service could be interfering with the recipient's phone line. You
can also ask the recipient to check the receiving fax machine for any
problems

Are you connected to a VOIP line for your fax?
A VOIP line can come from a company like Vonage or your local cable co.

If so:

Unfortunatly, faxing over VOIP (Internet) is not always successful. You might want to talk to your VOIP provider if they have a solution.

If not:

Are you trying with the same fax to send and recieve? Some traditional fax machines have probles connecting to fax modems, which is what you have in an Office Jet.
Try having someone else send you a fax and try sending to another number. Otherwise, you might have a defective fax modem.

Cannot send or receive faxes



Use the HP Fax Test
The telephone number for this service is 1-888-HPFaxme (1-888-473-2963). The fax service receives faxes and returns faxes within 5 to 7 minutes to the number contained in the fax header. Solution two: Run a fax diagnostic test
  1. Load plain white paper into the input tray.
  2. Press the Setup button (c01669474.gif ) on the product control panel.
  3. Press the right arrow (c01669475.gif ) to select Tools , and then press OK .
  4. On the Tools menu, press the right arrow (c01669475.gif ) to select Run Fax Test , and then press OK . The fax diagnostic test prints.
Solution three: Check the telephone line and change the HP fax settings Step one: Test the telephone line
  1. Disconnect the telephone cord from the back of the HP fax product.
  2. Figure 1: Two-wire telephone cord c01501963.gif
  3. Pick up the handset of the telephone and check for a dial tone.
  4. On the single-line telephone, dial the fax number of the receiving fax machine.
    • If the receiving fax machine answers the call, continue with the next step.
  5. Hang up the single-line telephone.
  6. Use a second telephone line or a cellular telephone to call the telephone number assigned to the HP fax product.
Step two: Change the HP fax settings
  1. Connect phone line into line 1
  2. Press the Setup button (c01669474.gif ) on the product control panel.
  3. Press the right arrow (c01669475.gif ) to select Basic Fax Setup or Advanced Fax Setup , and then press the right arrow (c01669475.gif ) again to change the menu option settings to the settings listed in the following table.

Advanced Fax Setup Answer Ring Pattern All Rings
  4. Use the HP Fax Test Service to try to send and receive a fax.
If the HP fax product still cannot send or receive a fax, continue to the next solution. Solution four: Check VoIP digital telephone line Using a VoIP telephone service can cause faxing to fail because fax transmissions are sensitive to the timing of the signals used to transmit the fax. If using a VoIP digital line is necessary, changing the Fax Speed Adjustment setting to Medium might improve the ability to send a fax over a VoIP telephone line. Use these steps to change the fax speed adjustment to a lower speed.

Our HP Officejet 5600 won't receive faxes.


Hi,
Here is the answer to your question.

Error code 244 can mean any of the following things: :

1. You or the person sending the fax pressed the STOP key , causing the session to stop before completion.

2. The fax machine on the other end determined that there is an incompatibility with your machine and the one you are sending to and stopped the fax session.

To fix this you can try the following things. Try them one at a time, and if they don't work, place them back the way they where before you changed it.
  • Make sure the fax machine you are sending to can accept and use polling.
  • Select a slower "receive" speed.
  • Enable or disable the ECM setting.
Error Code: 232

1. Can mean that a communication failure has happened between the two machines.

2. It may also mean that the user of the FAX machine you are sending to has pressed the STOP key

3. If call waiting is enabled, it may cause this error. Disable call waiting on your phone line, if you have a fax machine connected to it. The click or beep on the line that indicates you have a incoming call, can STOP a fax session.

4. Another cause of this error code is that the power was interrupted to the machine you are attempting to send a fax to.

Things you can do to solve this problem: Try them one at a time, and if they don't work, place them back the way they where before you changed it.

  • Try disableing ECM. However, this may reduce the quality of your faxes.
  • Ask the person you are sending the fax to to set the machine to receive at a slower speed.
  • Try the fax again at a different time, incase it is a problem with the phone line.
  • If you phone lines are old, or there is static on the line it may cause trouble sending a fax.If this is the case you will need to contact your local phone company or whoever is responsible for servicing your phone lines.

In order to find the solution to this issue, you need the fax number for another fax machine that is operating correctly with which to send and receive faxes. After trying each of the following solutions, try to send or receive a fax from this other fax machine to test if the issue has been resolved with your HP fax product. The other fax can be in the same building, on another telephone line, or at another location with someone who can assist. It can also be helpful to call the person or company that is sending the fax. That party can offer information about how that fax machine behaves when sending a fax. This information can be valuable in determining the nature of the issue.
There are several possible solutions to this issue. Start with the first solution and then continue with the other solutions in the order presented until the issue is resolved. When the issue is resolved, there is no need to continue troubleshooting.
Solution one: Run a fax diagnostic test
Run a fax diagnostic test to make sure that the HP fax product is set up correctly.
Load letter or A4 unused plain white paper into the input tray.
on the product control panel, press the setup button ( ).
Use the down arrow key ( ) to select Tools and then press the OK button ( ).
on the Tools menu, use the down arrow key ( ) to select Run Fax Test and then press the OK button ( ).
Review the results of the test.
If the result of the fax diagnostic test is All Pass ,
Reinitialize the fax
1. With the HP fax product turned on, disconnect the power cord from the back of the HP fax product and from the electrical outlet.
2. Connect one end of the telephone cord to the telephone jack and then connect the other end of the cord to the port labeled 1-Line on the back of the HP fax product.
3. Reconnect the power cord to the back of the HP fax product and then reconnect the power cord to the electrical outlet.
4. After the HP fax product reaches a ready state, try to send and receive a fax again.

First, in the FAX mode, scroll to PRINT REPORTS on your HP's display. You can then print out all fax activity, including failed SENDS. There should be an error code associated with the failure, and this may help to point you in the right direction. Using the HOOK button on your fax, call your cell phone. If your cell rings, answer it, and listen for the FAX TONES. If your cell does not ring, press the MENU button on your HP, and scroll to either FAX SETTINGS, FAX SETUP, INITIAL SETUP, or FAX SEND MODE. Try changing , one-by-one, any settings related to sending faxes. Be sure to write down the original setting before you change it.
