How I can receive fax through computer with HP1312?

Hi a barati75

A fax transmission is an analogue communication that was possible on a computer with the old technology of Dial up Modems, which accessed the internet by dialling like a landline telephone. The Broadband Modems (or Modem/Routers) in widespread use today have an 'always on' internet connection and, therefore, no dialling is involved in internet access using them.

You can send a fax by dialling out on the All-in-one printer's telephone number pad. Receiving a fax automatically requires you to have the All-in-one printer's Transmission/Reception Settings set to 'Automatic'.

This fax setup requires the printer's fax cable to plugged directly into an empty Telephone Line Socket on the ADSL filter that plugs into your Telephone Wall Socket and has inputs for your Modem (or Modem/Router) and a Telephone line. If, as is common, your ADSL Filter only has a single Telephone Line Socket and you also require a telephone to be plugged into the same socket as well as the Fax Machine component of your printer, then a Telephone Line Socket Doubler must first be plugged into the Telephone Line Socket of the ADSL Filter which then receives the Fax Line into one socket and the Telephone Line into the other. Please note that every Telephone Socket in the building sharing the same circuit/telephone number must also have an ADSL filter between it and any telephonic device (Telephone/Fax Machine/Answering Machine/Stock Control linked EPOS (Electronic Point of Sale) System/Card Payment Processing Machine, etc.), in order to enable both Computer Internet Data and Telecommunications Data to share the same line without conflict.

Your question asks whether a fax can be received "through" the computer. The above description enables your printer to send and receive faxes 'independently' of the computer while simultaneously providing the computer with printing, scanning and copying functions. For faxes to be sent and received via the computer, software is required. The simplest and most efficient of which is Efax (Electronic Fax (available from and other similar software available from a variety of suppliers. This software enables the user to send any document or image stored on the computer by fax (without first having to print it) and to receive faxes, at any time, in the form of attachments to e-mails that the software opens, usually as a non-editable PDF or other similar secure Document Format. Faxing a physical document via Efax requires the user to scan the document and save it on the computer first, before sending it.

A combination of a Standalone Fax function setup using ADSL Filters and Socket Doublers + Efax gives the user optimum flexibility in sending and receiving faxes.

I hope this helps.

How to test, and setup the Fax machine on HP multifunctional printers.


Please follow the instructions below to install and test the fax on an HP multifunctional unit.

1 - before connecting the printer install the software in the CD provided with the printer on the computer. The fax unit will also work in stand alone mode, but without installing the software you will not be able to control the unit from the connected computer.

2 - Have ready a phone cable. Ensure that the phone cable that you want to use has only two connectors:


3 - Connect one end of the telephone cord to the telephone jack andthen connect the other end of the cord to the socket labeled 1-Line on the back of the HP fax printer.


4 - The multifunction HP is now ready to send and receive Fax.

To send a basic fax:

1. Load your originals.
2. Enter the fax number by using the dial button on keypad.
3. Press START FAX Black.If the device detects an original loaded inthe automatic document feeder, it will send the document to the numberyou entered

If the Fax is not sending, then check that the original is loaded properly, then run the fax test following procedure below:

  1. press Setup
  2. select Tools
  3. select Run fax test
  4. press OK

  1. Load the original into the input tray.
  2. Press the Setup button (the one with a wrench) on the unit control panel.
  3. Press right arrow, select Tools, then press OK.
  4. On the Tools menu, press the right arrow to select Run Fax Test, and then press OK. The fax diagnostic test prints.
  5. Review the report.
If the test does not return ALL PASS , then setup the fax manually.

Change the HP fax settings
  1. Disconnect the telephone cord from the single-line telephone and then plug it into the port marked 1-Line at the back of the HP product.
  2. Press the Setup button (the one with a wrench) on the product control panel.
  3. Press the right arrow to select Basic Fax Setup or Advanced Fax Setup, then press the right arrow again to change settings to the settings listed in the table below.

After verifying Fax settings, try again sending a fax.

If still no luck, try calling the HP number listed on your user manual. In that case there may be a fault.

Also ensure that you do not have a VOIP phone rather than a landline phone, in that case setup will be completely different.

I am trying to fax and it says "poor line condition/out of memory" please help on what to do

> poor line condition

Disconnect it from the telephone wall-jack.
Connect a telephone-handset to that wall-jack.
Make a call to the FAX-number that you are trying to reach.
Listen. Do you hear "noise" or "static", due to terrible telephone-wires,
either from your location to your nearest telephone-exchange,
or from the target telephone to their nearest telephone-exchange.

> out of memory

Use the control-panel on the printer to delete "old" sent/received FAX documents, to clear-out some memory.

Just a plain telephone cord, plug it in. Go into setup and setup your fax name and number that will appear on the fax your sending. Set the number of rings before answering. Place a test fax call to some fax machine.
  1. Send a one page black and white text fax to 1-888-hpfaxme (1-888-473-2963).
  2. When your fax is received by the HP Test Fax Service, we will generate a return fax to you within five minutes confirming that we received your fax. This verifies that you can both send and receive a fax with your fax machine.
If you do not receive a return fax within 5-7 minutes, there may be a problem with the setup of your fax machine. Consult the user manual that came with the product for proper setup and configuration.

Receive code

In cases where the telephone line is also used as the fax line, the receive code allows the user to receive a fax upon answering the phone without going to the unit and pressing start. By default, the receive code is *9*. That means that pressing *9* sequentially on the telephone activates an automatic fax response form the unit. It needs no setup, except making sure the telephone line from the wall is connected to the LINE outlet in the unit and the remote telephone is connecte to the EXT outlet.

Be blessed.
