    my hp3050 all-in-one printer can't receive fax. when i tried to fax to my home with hp3050, it always ring and when said busy even nobody picked the phone line.

    The instructions state, that if you are using a shared line (fax machine/telephone/voice mail) to set the rings-to-answer to 2 more than the voice mail. My fax is not picking up when the voice mail kicks in. I can receive a fax if I answer the phone and hit the send fax button ...but that's the equivalent of the manual setting which severs no purpose if I'm not at home. If I set the fax to answer before the voice mail, I get my faxes every time BUT the FAX is answering the regular calls as well....therefore all of my callers get the screeching fax noise. Any clues?

HP 3050 Laser Jet: I can receive faxes but can not send fax? Help

Hello !
You need to reset fax settings first, go to the "Service" under the printers Main Menu and click on "Restore Defaults"
And then set the following settings under Fax Setup > Fax Receive Setup :

Answer Mode: Automatic
Rings to Answer: 2
Distictive Ring: All Rings

Now go to "All faxes" and change this settings:

Error correction : OFF
Fax Speed: Medium v.17

If you are using a digital line it would be a good idea installing a filter for the line

Hope this works

Unable to receive fax from HP LaserJet 3050


Please make sure the machine is set for auto-receive in machine set up and make sure the phone cord is plugged into the line jack on the machine. If this machine is not on a dedicated phone line the machine (rings) should be set to pick up before the answering machine does.

Phone Calls going to the fax machine

There is a PDF file on the CD. It may be helpful. When you set up your fax, did you set your ring-to-answer 2 rings more than your message system? If you don't have the CD, I can email you the PDF file. Let me know.
