Hp officejet 7310 not receiving fax


Is the phone jack cord plugged into the jack?
If so, is the jack operational?
To check the jack, take a land line phone that is working at another jack and try it in the jack your fax is plugged into.
If the jack is operating ok is the wire from the jack to the fax in good condition?
Maybe try the one from the land line phone on it.
If you have already tried all of these things then there is a wealth of knowledge on this site.

I have an HP 2510 printer. I cannot use it to fax because once I plug the phone jack into the printer I get a busy signal. If I plug the jack into a phone, it works fine. How do I get the printer to...


Hi irwinbadin,

HP fax products are designed so that other telephone equipment can be connected on the same line as the fax. The unit must be connected first using a two-conductor fax/phone cable like the one that shipped with the HP product. Using a four-conductor telephone cable may cause problems receiving faxes or calls.

There are two different types of phone cables. There are two-conductor phone cables like what originally shipped with the HP fax product and there are four-conductor cables. HP fax products are designed to work with a two-conductor phone cable. Look at the end of the cable and verify that it has only two copper leads or wires. Replace any four-conductor cables with a two-conductor cable. Only two-conductor phone cables should be used to connect the all-in-one to the phone line.

Figure 1: The difference between a two-conductor phone cable and a four-conductor phone cable

Step one: Connect the phone line to the fax
The fax will have two or three sockets (or jacks) for phone lines. Some of these may have a removable plastic plug in them. These sockets will be labeled with text, To Wall Jack , or with a graphic of the wall jack. See Figure 1 below.

Plug the two-conductor telephone cable that came with the HP product into the telephone wall jack. Then, plug it into this socket as shown below.

In areas with above ground telephone lines and electrical storms (lightning), it is a good idea to purchase a telephone line surge suppressor and connect it between the telephone wall jack and the fax. This will help prevent damage to the fax from a lightning-caused power surge on the phone line.

Step two: Add other phone-line devices
To connect other telephone devices, use the other socket (or sockets) on the fax. These are identified by text or with a graphic of a telephone and/or computer.

Connect a caller ID unit between the fax and the telephone.
Use the information below that matches the devices you need to connect.

Fax and telephone
Connect a single-line telephone to one of the added sockets on the fax. The telephone will share the same phone line as the fax. See the illustration below.

Fax, answering machine, and telephone
When a telephone answering machine and telephone are connected, connect the answering machine to the fax and then connect the telephone to the answering machine as shown below.

Fax and computer modem
To use a fax and a computer modem on the same phone line, connect the fax to the computer modem. The modem socket on the computer may be labeled Line or Wall jack .

Fax, computer modem, and telephone
To use a computer modem and a telephone with the fax, connect the computer modem to the fax. Then, connect the telephone into the second phone line connector on the computer modem or the third fax socket (if it is available). The image below shows how to connect a computer and a telephone to a fax with two sockets.

Fax, modem, answering machine, and telephone
The image below shows how to connect a computer modem, answering machine, and telephone to a fax. Connect the computer modem to the fax, then connect the answering machine to the computer, and finally, connect the telephone to the answering machine.
If the fax has three phone line sockets instead of two, some of the devices can be connected to the other phone socket on the fax.

I'm trying to get my Magic Jack to work with my HP 6210 all in one printer. The system test says everything is working fine, and the machine appears to operate correctly when faxing, but the faxes don't go...


Honestly, Magic Jack will only mess your computer up more then it's worth in savings.

If you really want to leave the phone company, check out OOMA (ooma.com) it cost more in the begining, but saves WAY more in the long run.

Of the 10 computers I tried to fix after Magic Jack had been installed on them, I had to reinstall the Operating System on all of them. Magic Jack is worthless.

I have magic jack and am trying to use it for a medical device because I have a pacemaker and defibulater and it need to be monertered by a LATITUDE COMMUNICATOR.Can magic jack be used for the LATITUDE...


I have and use Magic Jack too..Does your Latitude Communicator just plug right into a phone jack with a regular phone cord? If it does, then it should work...You will have to always leave your laptop on and never turn it off because Magic Jack requires a constant connection...Plug your equipment into the back of your Magic Jack and then with another phone, call the company that monitors your pacemaker/defibulator and ask them to "test" your line to see if you will receive a signal from them through your Magic Jack...You will to have to plug it all in and then test or you won't ever know...When I plug my home phone into the back of my Magic Jack, I receive a dial tone just like it was connected to a home based landline phone

My Magic 5 Fax/phone machine is no longer recognising the cordless phone that came with it and while I can get the cordless handset into registration mode, the device (base station) will not register it...


See if your cordless phone will work when plugged directly into the wall jack.If it does then plug a regular phone into the faxes phone connector, EXT jack. See if you can make a call. If you can plug the cordless in again to the EXT jack on the fax machine. In order for the fax switch to function, the machine must
be first in the series if multiple devices are connected to the
same telephone socket. Follow the correct order

If you have multiple telephone sockets for the same
telephone line, the machine must be connected to
the first telephone socket.

If you still get the error I recommend a servicecall to the manufractorer
