Press Start Fax Black or Start Fax Color on the control panel of the HP All-in- One.
When prompted, press the down arrow to highlight Receive Fax Manually , and then press OK .
Press Start Fax Black again.
After the HP All-in-One begins to receive the fax, you can hang up the phone or remain on the line. The phone line is silent during fax transmission.
