Question about HP LaserJet 3055 All-In-One Printer

2 Answers

Answering machine turns on and I can't receive faxes.

I have a HP Laserjet 3055 and it works great to send out faxes.

I have a Panasonic KX-TG5631 answering machine that answers the faxes.
If I disconnect the phone, it works perfectly, but i need them to be connected at all times..

Re: answering machine turns on and I can't receive faxes.

Why don't you consider a separate Phone/Fax switch. It will answer first ring and detect a fax and then ring the fax/printer you can set that to one ring as well, otherwise it ring the answering machine that is plugged into that and you can set that to answer on 3 or 4 rings. Then you have time to pickup phone if you are available.

Thanks what I do. The boxes are about $30 They are fairly cheap.

Fax issue with HP Laserjet 3055

Hi. The fax-module in lj 3055 needs a 100% analog dial tone. You might get it working on a internet-phone-line, but HP garantees nothing because there are so many internet-phone-providers, and all of them operates with different specs and line-quality. You might try to lower the baud rate, turn off JBIG compession and error-correction. If the problem still remains, you need to replace your phone-line to a 100% analog line. Not any internet or ISDN/adapter-stuff. You should test your fax on any analog line at a friends house, just to make sure the fax i working anway.

3055 fax not working, sendng or receiving directly

Below is a link to an HP tech site. They helped me with MY hp all-in-one. It turned out I needed to download a different driver from HP's tech website (the download is free) and that is probably what you will be doing, also. God luck.

I can send a fax, but not receive one.

re-install your 3055. check for the manual on HP website. download it.
plus you may need a filter on your phone...fax boards are very sensitive to online static.

My hp 3055 has not been receiving any faxes

The only thing that I can think of for you to do is to completly delete it from your computer & then re-download it. Only do this if you get no other resolution. Or you can call 1-800-474-7739 for hp technical support. I just did & they were a great help to me!
