Hooking up fax to KX TG7871 Panasonic Phone


There is excellent support here on basic fax setups. You have what is known as "Distinctive Ringing Service". There are pros and cons to the various setups. I assume you recognize the rings and answer only when the ring for the landline talk comes on. The fax will pick up the faxes, and the answering machine will pick up the voice.

Need model number of your fax - google that!

Service manual for your phone.

This link shows various configurations of setting up your phone/fax/answering machine or using an answering service.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&docname=c00059780#Dist_ring
Distinctive Ringing Service setup While it is not available everywhere, a distinctive ringing service can be purchased from most telephone companies. With this service, more than one phone number is assigned to the same phone line. Each phone number will ring differently. The main number will ring with a normal single ring and the additional number will ring with a distinctive ring pattern assigned by the phone company.
When a distinctive ringing service is used, set the Rings to Answer to 2 and then follow the steps below to set the distinctive ringing pattern:
  1. Press Setup , press 4 , and then press 1 to enter the Answer Ring Pattern setup of the Advanced Fax settings.
  2. Use the Right Arrow to scroll through the available settings. When the ring pattern assigned by the phone company displays (double or triple rings), press OK .

Need to set up phone/fax instead of just fax


I have a HP Officejet J6480 All-In-One and needed the answering machine and fax to be on at the same time.  I called the help line at HP and they said I needed another phone line into the home but I tried this and it worked. 
First I got a different phone number for the fax machine - they do this for no charge at my phone company. This is not another physical line into the home - it is just another phone number with a different ring - it rings 2 fast rings for the fax machine instead of the phones regular one ring. I set the answering machine built into the phone to pick up after 4 rings and I set the fax machine to pick up on 2 rings. Be sure to set it so the fax pick up number of rings are less than the answering machine pick up number of rings.  It worked for me. Hope this works for you too.

You don't have the cable plugged into the "telephone" jack instead of the "line" jack on the machine do you?

I have one phone line but I added a special ring service for the fax part of my Officejet J4550 all in one printer. I have hooked it up so phone line goes into printer and out to phone. I also have a dsl...


Did you make sure to set the fax machine for the ring pattern on the fax number? If you skip that step the machine won't pick up. The "distinctive ringing" setup is covered in the manual which you can download here if you've managed to lose your copy.

If the link doesn't work or you don't like to click on a link, here's the URL: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01368521.pdf.

Once you have the machine set for the right ring pattern, have it answer immediately and it will pick up.

Please take a moment to rate this solution a fixya if it's been what you need, and thanks for asking here!

Incoming faxes not received, all else works.


Hi there,

It is your phone answering machine that must pick up in three rings or less.

Therefore 4 is too much. I would not limit number for fax machine itself.

On receipt of fax sometimes seems like it will not work when answering machine picks up in the middle. However, leave it and it will work. Sometimes sender will hear your answering machine and cancel as well. So try to ensure they don't give up at other end as well.

Good Luck!

Fax feature


You have to set the printer to pickup 2 rings higher than your answering machine. If the answering machine picks up on 4 the printer should pick up on 6.

I believe the menu should be Setup button - down arrow key until you see basic fax setup and press ok - down arrow key until you see rings to answer and press ok - change to 2 higher than answering machine.

Now you should receive faxes and calls!

CAN'T RECEIVE A FAX


you can get the manual here: - LINK

Basically you plug your phone line into the fax machine line in and set the ring pick up to the desired length.

When someone calls you the fax should pick up and take the data.

Fax pick up


Greetings Nana, 
I believe that you can specify how many rings should occur before your Kodak 5500 Ai Printer automatically answers an incoming call (default = 4). 
If you have a dedicated fax line, set the Rings to Answer to 1 or 2.  If you have a shared line for voice/modem and fax, set the Rings to answer to 3, 4, or 5. This setting only applies if Answering Machine Mode is set to OFF.
When the Answering Machine mode is disabled, Rings to Answer applies and your AiO printer answers the call. When your AiO printer detects a fax tone, it receives the fax. When a voice call is received (no fax tone), the call is ignored.
1 Press Menu to display the main menu. 2 Press scroll down until Fax Settings is displayed. 3 Press OK to display the Adjust Fax Settings menu. 4 Press scroll down until Rings to Answer is selected. 5 Press right or left arrow to change the number of rings.
Give it a try, Nana, but let Kodak know if you need additional help. They will be there for you.
