Question about HP OfficeJet t45 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I recently changed my OfficeJet T45 from its own phone line to a shared line with custom ringtone. The machine was originally set to answer all rings, but in this setting it continues to beep through conversations on the phone. When I went in to advanced fax setup and changed to double ring, the fax machine doesn't recognize it and answer. I have tried, single ring, double ring, triple ring and both double and triple ring. The only way it picks up is in all rings and I'm back to the original problem of the fax twitter thing through the conversation.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

If you have call waiting on your phone service you can call your phone company and get "personal ring" service. It will cost a couple of dollars extra a month, but they will assign you another phone number and it will have a different ring style to it. Then you can set the ring type to the type of ring they assign you.

The "tags" says no dial tone, so I wonder if you can send faxes? If not I would suspect the connection is not correct. The preferred setup would be to connect the phone line from the wall to the line input of the 2210 and then plug the phone (and answering machine) into the phone output on the 2210. Looking from the back the should plug into the jack on the right and the line to the wall should plug into the jack on the left. It is possible (??) that the 2210 will not present an autoanswer option if an active phone line is not connected. You can see the setup instructions for the Fax here. Note HP recommends using only a 2-wire phone line.
Also, do you have DSL on the same line? This can cause some issues.

SOURCE: fax answers on phone calls.
Hello There. Most household all in one units cannot operate on the ring characteristcs that you are describing.
They simply operate on the number of rings before automatic pickup to the fax machine. Therefore, you will need to just change the number of rings before the fax machine picks up. In this case however, you will not be able to use voicemail, since one or the other will will pickup.
Page 63 and 64 (in PDF) or page 62 and 63 (hardcopy manual) explain the process.
Ignore the information about setting higher then voicemail. That information is typically only valid if you have the old voicemail devices in your home. Most people now adays get a voicemail service added to your telephone service, in which case you cannot control the voicemail as easily.
So again, in other words you will be sacrificing your voicemail for your fax machine. Only other way around it is to get a dedicated fax line to seperate the two numbers.

Tips for a great answer:
If you have an answering machine connected to the same line as your fax:
To make sure the printer picks up
incoming faxes, set Auto Answer to On, and then set the printer to pick up
after a greater number of rings than the answering machine. For example, if the
answering machine picks up calls after four rings, then set the printer to pick
up after six rings. This way, the answering machine picks up calls first and
your voice calls are received. If the call is a fax, then the printer detects
the fax signal on the line and takes over the call.
If you have a voicemail feature associated to the same line as your fax:
Voice mail and fax can share the
same telephone line if you subscribe to a distinctive ring service offered by
your telephone company. This feature allows you to have multiple telephone
numbers on one telephone line. Each telephone number has a designated ring
pattern (single ring, double ring, triple ring, or double and triple ring). The
different ring patterns let you know which telephone number was dialed, and
which device you should use to answer the call.
If you do not have distinctive ring
service, then set the printer to receive faxes manually (Auto Answer Off). This
setting lets you receive both voice calls and fax calls, but works best if you
use voice mail more often. You need to turn off voice mail whenever you are
expecting a fax.
I hope this helps.
