A "Phone Off Hook" message is not an error. It simply indicates that a telephone receiver isoff the hook(the handset is lifted) and the telephone line is open. This message would be expected in the following situations:

  • A modem on the phone line is accessing the Internet.
  • A phone connected to the HP fax (or the same phone line) is using the line, or the handset has been lifted.
  • A credit card machine is using the phone line.
  • Another electronic device is using the phone line.
  • The Start Fax button was pressed with no telephone number entered. Pressing Stop or Cancel should return the display to a ready state.
When the other device is no longer using the phone line, the display should revert to the normal message.
Lets try the following,
Disconnect the phone cable from the back of the HP product and the message should clear. If the message does not clear, unplug the power cable from the back of the unit, wait 15 seconds, and then plug in the power cable.
if issue still exists try the followign
Disconnect the phone cable from the HP product and connect it to a single line phone. Pick up the handset and listen for a dial tone. If no dial tone is present, replace the phone cable. If a dial tone is still not present, a problem exists with the phone system.
Hope It's resolve all Your Printer Problem,

No matter whatido cant send fax keeps saying off the hook


Try unplugging other phones (from the phone jacks) that are on the same line. Also, remove any phone that is plugged in to the fax machine, if there is one attached. If that doesn't work, swap the phone cable on your all-in-one printer/fax with a different one. Lastly, try a different phone jack all together.

I can tell you I had the same problem with my fax/printer, and it ended up being a bad phone cable. It, the cable, worked fine with a handset, but not with the fax. Good luck.

Line in use


Hi there, the fax machine on your all-in-one printer is really handy when it works properly. Getting your fax capability back requires a troubleshootingmag-glass_10x10.gif process that moves through the possible causes of a problem and arrives at a solution. Follow these steps to troubleshoot the fax machine on an all-in-one printer.

  • Plug the power cords in, push the power buttons on and get everything up and running. Sounds simple, but lack of power is the culprit quite often.
  • Step 2.Check for a phone connection in the correct input jack. Some printers with fax capability have more than one phone jack so you can hook up an answering machine or another phone "downstream" from the printer. Consult your instruction manual to determine the right connection for your printer.
  • Step 3.Swap out the all-in-one printer for a working phone to find out if the problem is in the phone line coming from the wall. Once you hook up the phone, you should get a dial tone if the line is working. Remember to reconnect the all-in-one printer after you're done.

    Trying to fax with pixma mx7600. Plugged phone


    You probably want to plug the phone line (the line from the wall) into the port marked "L" for line on the back of the Fax machine. The jack with the picture of the telephone handset is for your optional voice phone to share the same line with the fax machine.

    When I hit hook to send a fax I hear a click but I get no dial tone and the same on receiving a fax MP830


    You only hit hook to hear the dial tone or use the machine like a speaker phone. To send a fax you press fax start. If you can't hear a dial tone when you press hook, there is something wrong with the phone line connection, or it's plugged in to the wrong plug on the machine. The phone line goes into the one marked with an L, the other with the pic. of a phone is for an additional telephone.

    One of my agents unplugged the fax machine (Canon D880) and now it wont work at all. I printed a report of the settings and it looks fine but nothing works


    Make sure the phone line is plugged into the correct input "Line" not "Phone" . Does the fax have an "On Hook" button that allows you to hear the dial tone? Have you tried a regular phone on the line to verify that there is a dial tone?

    PIXMA canon MP830 ticking sound


    I finally figured mine out. It definitely has to do with the fax function as I could do everything except fax. Mine was the phone being off the hook (looking at the back off the printer the little phone symbol) even though the phone line coming into the machine was unplugged (L symbol on the back of the printer). Hopefully yours will be as easy.

    My printer makes a clicking noisae and won't print


    This solution is for webbie15. I have the same Canon PIXMA MP780 printer, and I got the same annyoing clicking sound after I moved it today, and whenever I tried to print, Windows said the printer was offline.

    It turns out I accidentally plugged the square usb cable into one of the phone jacks (I was too lazy to look, I just felt my way back there). Amazing, but the usb cable FITS in a phone jack, and apparently shorted the printer into thinking it was on-hook, off-hook for a fax.

    It's been months since you asked the question. Hopefully this will help others.

    Cannot figure how to set up Canon MP830 All in One Fax machine with remote answering machine


    Cannot figure how to hook up Canon MP830 all in one fax with remote answering machine. I can plug in phone line to send faxes fine but when hooked up in same hole and the phone rings it goes immediately to fax and can't receive phone calls. Maybe i have phone line hooked up in wrong place on my machine. The answering machine is in our master bedroom on the other side of the house. With my last a canon also i had it hooked up to go to fax after a certain amount of rings and it worked fine. That machine got fried by lightening and i replaced it with this machine. If anyone knows what i am doing wrong i really need this fax hooked up all the time for my business.
