It depends on what type of printer you have...i actually have an HP officejet j3500 series, it a fax, printer,scanner and copier in one.. when im using it for sending fax messages, i just dial the number where im sending it and it automatically faxes (phone keypad and handset is included)... and i use it as my printer too so its already connected to my pc..so easy to use...


but but but... i actually connected a separate phone line (our original phone from our provider) to the hp j3500 series cuz sometimes i need to speak first to thr person im sending fax before i send the message... i think that is for manual sending of fax...

so if you want to send manually (speaking first to the person before sending) a separate phone line is required (connected to ur fax)

but if u want autofax, then i dont think its necessary...

there u go...

When we try to fax, the transmission verification report reads NG: Poor Line Condition/Out of Memory


Is the fax on a dedicated phone line, or have are you sharing the line with another phone and perhaps a ADSL filter?

Hanging extra devices off of the same line as your Fax can cause the signal to weaken.

If you have extra devices hanging off one line, then remove all of them, then try to fax again.

Setting up fax feature


get a separate telephone cable and attach it to your fax, switch line over from phone to fax manually at the phone line input on the wall, it's the ONLY way I can manage that same problem. If you forget to "switch" your lines over, unplug the fax from the wall & answer your other house phone that's plugged into the wall. Works every time. It takes a little effort, but why pay for more phone lines when all you have to do is plug/unplug an extra phone line?

Set up fax and dsl using one phone line


You can buy a splitter to put on your line so you can run both devices. They sell them at the dollar tree big lots and everywhere else usually, and range from .59 to $2. as far as another DSL filter ask a friend neighbor or co-worker if they have or had dsl and have an extra filter. If not then you can pick them up for a couple of bucks at radio shack

Fax set up


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Phone line goes to L. The 'one with the phone icon' is a provision to connect a standard telephone. Other than the USB connector to the computer and the power cord, to my understanding, no other connections are necessary.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Hi red,

You may need to set the fax as the default answerer of incoming calls. Here's a little tip, most local phone companies offer a distintive ring feature that only the fax will answer. If you get the option your users manual will tell you how to set up this feature and whats neat about is you get a seperate
number for that feature, your own dedicated fax line without add any extra outside lines.

Can't receive fax - fax rings 2ce then just stops / says phone off hook


Hi Iryan,

Instead of switch box, a more dependable option is to get a distinctive ring. Your local phone company offers this option. What's neat about is you get a seperate fax number. Its like having a dedicated fax line without adding extra lines to your service. I think the monthly fee is around 3 dollars a month for this feature, but, believe me its well worth it.

Cannot fax w/ phone line


A lot of Voice Over IP phone providers don't support FAX or you have to pay extra for it. If thet refused to help, then they probably don't support it, if they did, they would try to get you to buy it. FAX data is not always compatible with VOIP transmission. Not much you can do about it, except compalin louder to them. If it is possible to set the baud rate of your fax slower, that might help.

Some faxes I received have half the page printing in solid black or with lines through it.


This sounds like a noise problem. Call your phone company and have them test your phone line for noise. If you have DSL, and do not have the filter - then you will need to obtain one of those. The filter converts DSL lines to regular phone signals, because the DSL has extra stuff on it.

With it being only some of the faxes, it could be the sending fax that has the noise too. If your line is clean and it is not the DSL filter, then ask the sender to have their line tested.
