Question about HP Photosmart C6180 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

2 line phone and hp 3309a all inone.

I have a 2 line phine in an office. I have the line in going to the hp all in one (fax), then out the second line port back to the phone. When I try to dial on the phone, it doesn't let me complete the number and tells me the phone numbers is wrong. I also noticed that with both devices hooked up with a splitter the same thing happens. Also with the hp just plugged into the line makes the phone have a repeating dial tone before it goes steady.

If you having problem with a splitter, then the porblem is at phone comany end, not the fax machine or your phone, I would call the phone company to check out their line.

Yes, you must set up your fax machines like this: The receiving fax must be set to auto receive and the telephone line must be inserted in the "line" input. A line must then be connected from the "Tel" to the "Line" of the Transmitting machine, which must be set to "manual receive." This is not really a satisfactory way of doing things as you can't send and receive 2 machines on the same line together. A much better way is to have 2 lines. with a machine attached to each. Get the tel company to put "No answer transfer" on the line as an accesory. Give them the number of the fax machine that transmits. Make it "manual receive" Now you have a versatile system that you can also use the office telephone with.

Hp office jet 5610 all in one printer--- am I able to fax without hooking up to a computer if yes how- thanks


All the HP office all-in-ones fax without computer hookup, simply place the fax on the load tray face up until you see the window state that the original is loaded. Then on the number pad dial the fax number you want to connect to, once that is done...press the black fax button and the machine will dial the number, once a connection is made the fax will feed itself through and complete. The only connection needed is an outgoing phone line. Just make sure that the phone line is in the right socket on the back. You will see icons by the sockets, the one with the phone icon is for a line to go to a phone headset....this is not the socket for the main phone line, ise the other one that says "line".

Perhaps you can talk to your telephone service about setting up a second line just for your fax sending and retrieval. There must be some type of deal they could give you..especially if you are a loyal customer.

The fax will not answer even though I have it set to answer after 2 rings. It is on a dedicated line. Help!


There is a check box that must be checked in order to enable automatic answering.

Also, you have to have the phone line plugged into the Officejet machine

Greetings my hp office jet its not faxing nor receiving faxes. it says no dialing tone


At a guess, I would say your phine line is either dead, or you have the line connected in to the incorrect socket. The phone line needs to be plugged into the socket that has an 'L' next to it. Check this first. If this is plugged in, check the line to the wall socket to make sure it is plugged in. If all this is good, press the hook button on the front of the unit, if it has one. You should hear a dial tone. If there is no hook button, get a phone and plug it in, if there is no dial tone, get a telephone tech in to check your line. If there is dial tone and you still can't fax. the unit has a faulty modem and will need to be replaced.
Being it a HP ink jet, should this be the case. throw it out and buy a new printer as the printer cannot be fixed because HP do not supply spare parts for their inkjet printers.

Faxes office Jet K60


You have to have either a dedicated phone line just for the fax --or-- pay your phone company approximately $2 a month for a service called Distinctive Ringtone. This service will ring a certain way when you have an incoming fax. You will then configure your fax machine to pick up when this distinctive rington is heard. The ringtone is usually two or three quick rings. Your fax machine's settings will have this setting.

Unfortunately, you can't just plug your fax machine into your phone line and start sending/receiving faxes. Look through your fax machine's manual regarding the distinctive ring service. Good luck!!

Hp L7580 fax machine


set up the fax driver in windows printers and faxes menu with the calling card prompts. you can use commas between sets of numbers for 2 second pauses. such as (example) 9,,1800callmci,,,2,,3,,cardnumber,,,4digitpin,,3685551212, - in this fashion, you can edit the fax number here before sending the fax.
