The very first thing to check with a fax machine is that the line itself is OK. The possibilities are much greater that there is a problem with the LINE and not the HP itself.
Hook up a regular telephone to the fax line, disconnecting anything else that may be on the line. If the telephone doesn't have a dial tone, call the phone company. If you DO have a dial tone, then maker sure that the phone line is connected to the correct port on the HP. There are two, usually. One is for the LINE and the other is for an EXTENSION (a phone that is daisy chained off the fax machine). If you have the LINE connected to the EXT port, it may give you this error.
If you have multiple items connected to the same phone line, try removing all of them but one regular phone, and see if you have a dial tone. If so, add the other items back, checking for a dial tone after each one. If one of them causes a lack of dial tone, replace or repair it.

The phone company may tell you that the problem lies in your inside wiring. I have seen that before. You can take your phone out to the telephone service box on the outside of the building. These usually have regular phone jacks in them. Disconnect the jack wire that runs into your house, and connect the regular telephone into the box itself. If you have a dial tone, then there is indeed a problem with the wiring in your building.

HP 5610 All-in-one can recieve faxes but not send, when sending a fax i always get the busy tone. connot understand why, recieves faxes prefectly.


Have you set for the proper dialing? there's a choice for pulse or tone dialing, you probably need tone dialing. Also the number needs to be put in just as you would dial on a phone.

My hp officejet v40xi says off hook when I try to send a fax. I hear not dial tone. can you help me I am using sbcglobal service


It will say 'off the hook' if the line is in use. There should be dial tone on the line before you can fax something.

Goodluck!

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.

Problem faxing


Unplug the fax at the wall jack and hook up a regular phone. Listen to the dial tone. It should sound like a regular dial tone.

Next, plug the fax back in and call the machine from a regular phone.

You should hear fax tones.

If you are using speed dial to dial the fax number, the HP Officejet
might be dialing too fast or too soon. To solve this problem, try one
of the following:
Try manually dialing the fax number from the HP Officejet front
panel, or from an attached phone. For information, see send a
fax using monitor dialing
on page 43 or send a fax manually
from a telephone
on page 43.
Re-create the speed dial setting and insert some pauses. For
information, see create individual speed-dial entries on
page 56.
If your telephone line has a PBX system, make sure you are dialing
the number for an outside line before dialing the fax number.
The receiving fax machine might be having problems. To check this,
try calling the fax number from a telephone and listen for fax tones.
If you cannot hear fax tones, the receiving fax might not be turned
on or connected, or a voice mail service could be interfering with
the recipient’s phone line.
