Phone won't let me answer calls


Your answering machine may be set to answer only. Refer to manual to correct this. You need to set the machine to answer on whatever ring you choose. Turn off answering machine to receive calls until you rectify the issue.

I would like to take my message when I am out of the house. Is it possible with a code or something like that?


Most machines let you press # or * key as soon as your recording starts playing. Then after you press the buttons it will give you instructions to follow to receive you messages.

When people leave me a message - the answering machine does not show that I have a message. The person calling hears the greeting - leaves a message, but I do not receive the message.


It may be similar to the problem I had on wireless home phone with answering machine not taking messages when had the answering machine set to 12 rings before answering. Found the sim card (my wireless system) auto response would answer first. Fixed it by reducing time to 6 rings and answering machine now comes on first.

WANT TO ATTACH A MESSAGE MACHINE


The message machine needs to be set to answer 1 ring before the fax is set to answer. When the phone rings the fax starts listening even when the answer machine picks up. If the fax hears fax tones it will receive the fax and if no tones the answer machine will take a message.

Messages come out too fast.


I erased the other messages on the answering machine and unplugged and replugged the main base.
I since have received a message and it was fine. Thank you for your time

What exactly happens when a fax should be coming through and it does not? Does the machine ring and fail to answer, or does it answer, possibly receive, and then not print? Which mode is the machine set for? Are there any error messages on the machine or other LCD message displayed?

Have you verified the telephone line is properly connected so that the machine is able to communicate? Make sure that the machine is able to use the telephone line by using the handset to make a phone call. If this fails, you will know to go through the phone troubleshooting problems, just as you would with any other phone issues.

If the phone line is functional, please reply with more detail re exactly what occurs when a fax should be coming through, e.g. does the fax machine answer the call or let it ring until answered manually? I believe that either there is an issue with the line, or there is an issue with the setup of the mode for receiving, but can not be more specific without more information.

If this information assists you in resolving the problem, please take a moment to rate the solution at a "FixYa" level. If you do not feel that you can rate at a "FixYa", please post back with more information regarding what has occurred subsequently and/or more details regarding the situation, and I will gladly help you until we have reached a definitive solution. Thank you for using and rating FixYa!

Have to be near fax machine to recieve fax


The Rings to Answer feature might not be set to answer after the
appropriate number of rings for your office setup.
If you have a voice mail service at the same phone number you use
for fax calls, you must receive faxes manually, not automatically. For
information on how to receive faxes manually, see receive a fax
manually from a phone
on page 48.
If you have a PC modem on the same phone line with your
HP Officejet, check to make sure that the modem’s software is not
set to receive faxes automatically. Modems with this auto fax
receive feature turned on will take over the phone line to receive all
incoming faxes, which will prevent the HP Officejet from receiving
fax calls.
If you have an answering machine on the same phone line with
your HP Officejet, you might have one of the following problems:
Your outgoing message might be too long or too loud to allow
the HP Officejet to detect fax tones, and the calling fax machine
might disconnect.
Your answering machine might not have enough quiet time after
your outgoing message to allow the HP Officejet to detect fax
tones. This problem is more common with digital answering
machines.
The following actions might help solve these problems:
a. Disconnect the answering machine and then try receiving a fax.
If faxing is successful without it, the answering machine might
be causing the problem.
b. Reconnect the answering machine and re-record your outgoing
message. Make sure the message is as short as possible (no
more than 10 seconds long), and that you speak softly and
slowly when recording it. Try again to receive a fax.
If you have a special ring pattern for your fax phone number (using
a distinctive ring service through your telephone company), make
sure that the Answer Ring Pattern feature on your HP Officejet is set
to match. For example, if the phone company has assigned your
fax number a double ring pattern, make sure Double Rings is
selected as the Answer Ring Pattern setting. For information on
changing this setting, see change the answer ring pattern
(distinctive ringing)
on page 63.
Note that some ring patterns cannot be recognized by the
HP Officejet, such as those with alternating short and long ringing
patterns. If you are having problems with a ring pattern of this type,
ask your phone company to assign a non-alternating ring pattern.

How to set Ans/Fax receiving mode of SCX-4521F?


Try setting the receive mode to FAX/ANS. If you want the fax not to pickup before a phone call comes in, you should set the number of fax rings to a higher number, like "5" for instance. Set the answering machine rings less and the fax higher. The machine will usually record a message first and then detect a fax tone.
