Will the HP 6210 work with VOIP and Win 7?


HP Officejet 6210 All-in-One is not tested on VOIP connections when it was in manufactured. However these printers do work with VOIP connection.

If you are unable to get the printer working on VOIP connection, there are few ways to fix this.

1. Reduce the Fax speed of printer ( from Setup - Basic Fax Settings - Fax Speed ). Try to Fax
If this does not work, try the step below

2. VOIP is Digital technology and HP 6210 works on Analog Signals ( standard telephone line )
- You need a DSL Filter which converts the Digital Signals to Analog and vice versa. This filter is available at any departmental store or computer accessory shop

- Connect the DSL Filter to phone socket. Connect the printer telephone cable to Analog port of DSL Filter ( to Line 1 Extn port of printer )

Either of this should fix the solution. However there is another solution which may or may not be possible. It is to reduce the baud rate on your Cable connection ( though not recommended )

I own a Canon Pixma MP530 all-in-one fax,copier, printer,scanner. I cannot send or receive faxes since I switched my Comcast voip phone line from my office to my home phone, along with my MP530. The fax...

First try one step. The line which you have connected with the Fax, unplug any other phone from that line.
Call that number and see whether it rings or you get a fax tone.

I am unable to use my fax when it worked before, say's busy/no signal. The last time I was able to use it was in January 2010

Verify the connectivity (phone line) first by pluging a working telephone in the wall jack, than test the cable from the wall jack to the fax, you could install a Y to plug a working telephone with the fax on the same line to spy on what is happening when the fax is engaging a connection.

I can't send faxes on my Canon Pixma MP530 on digital phone line

They're telling you your hardward doesn't play nice with their hardware. A few suggestions:

Update your printer, and see if any improvement is found:

If that doesn't work, see if your computer has a fax modem that itself can be updated and can support the hardware. Your multifunction printer has a scanner; you can scan in the things you want to fax, then fax from the computer if the computer can fax. This is starting to look like a Dr. Seuss book.

You can also try to learn more about what the problems are and look elsewhere. Your "digital" phone is actually voice over Internet, something VOIP. If you Google for VOIP FAX you'll find some information, like this:

Pixma MP530 Fax Problems

I am having a similar problem. You do have to connect your phone to the jack in the machine in the "Phone" jack slot, as well as have another line out to the jack in the wall in the "L" slot. That is all I know. I am having problems with my voicemail. Either I can received voicemail, and no faxes, or faxes, and no voicemail (fax picks up at specified number of rings). It is EXTREMELY frustrating. The machine is *supposed* to be able to discern between phone calls and faxes..and that is not happening.

Have you come across a solution? Aghhhhh!

Problem with fax

Check your phone lines. You should have one that runs directly from the wall jack to the "L" port on the machine (there should be no other devices connected between the wall and the machine). If you have other devices connected (telephone, answering machine, computer modem, etc) they should be connected to the port on the machine that has an icon next to it that looks like a telephone.

Can't use the fax on my Canon MP 530

There are 2 ports on the rear, 1 for the incomming phone line, and one to plug in a telephone handset (passthrough) if the telephone line is plugged into the wrong port, the fax machine is unable to dial properly, So try plugging into the other port on the back, it's just next to the other port hope this helps
