How can a hp j4680 conect to moible phone

The printer is not a WiFi or Bluetooth printer, So, to connect it to your mobile phone you need an OTG cable, usable just if you have an android smartphone.
With that you can easily connect your phone at your printer with the USB cable of the printer
The phone will say "Printer is Connected"

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.


Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I am unclear as to how to set up the fax feature. Does it have to be connected directly to a phone?


If you are using HP Printer All in One.. Follow the steps

Connect the Phone line to line 1 Extn at the back of the printer ( which connects directly to phone jack or wall outlet )

If you have Answering machine or TAM and you have single phone line, Connect the Phone line from Line 2 Extn of Printer to TAM.

This should work

My d link router will not connect to the internet from my phone jack. I where I receive my phone and internet connections. What steps do I take to install to receive the highh speed connections?

The phone jack must be connected to a modem, which is then connected to the router via an ethernet cable. To connect:
1. Connect the phone cord from the jack in the wall to the jack in your modem of choice. Turn on the modem. 2. Connect a CAT-5 ethernet cable from the correct jack in the modem to the correct jack in the router. 3. If using a wired connection, connect an ethernet cable from the router to your computer. Otherwise, simply activate the wireless card of your computer and select from the available wireless networks.

Connect mfc 7340 to pc without phone line

Yes you will need to install the drivers and connect with a USB cable. The CD that came with the machine. Remember to connect the cable only when the installation says to.

The only thing that will require phone lines is for the fax. You need to connect the phone lline in the jack called line on the machine and other end should go straight to the wall jack.

Cannot send a fax

For a fax to work you do not need a broadband. What you need is a phone like. It seems that you are trying to use broadband for fax because it is the same phone line that they both are on. Sorry, will not work that way. If you trace back you will find that there is a little box that has the phone line coming into from outside. The box splits it into phone and dsl. It is this phone line that should go into the fax and not the dsl line.
So please remove the dsl line from the fax and connect the phone line and you will see that the fax works.

On the back of your printer you have 2 two jacks:
One says PHONE LINE and the other PHONE

On the jack "phone line" connect the cable that it is coming from the jack of your house
On jack "Phone" connect your regular Phone

I want to connect my X7170 Lexmark Color Printer to receive fax and also send. Do I need a CD to do that? If so, can you send me one ? serial no is: 05430358402

In order to connect your printer to send and recieve faxes you need to connect a phone cable from the back of the printer to the connection on your wall where you would generally connect a telephone.
There are usually to openings to connect the cable to on the back of the printer. One connects to the the wall as mentioned above.

The other usually has a symbol of a phone and you can connect a regular landline phone to that one.

CD's are not needed

To set up your phone number go through the menus on the printer. You don't have to do it unless you wish people to see where faxes are coming from.
