Re: hp5610

Suggest you contact HP tech service for these directions. Go online, Google Hewlett Packard. follow the link to support. Enter the model number, serial number, etc.
Then, after doing the above... and given the opportunity to explain your problem.... ask them to send you instructions on how to hook up to receive a fax.
It's a simple process, but depends on your setup (i.e. whether you have a standalone phone to receive faxes, or a shared phoneline for voice and fax use...and other options that are specific to your setup.  
I have a separate phone number for voice/fax, connected to the All-in-One.  The All-in-One is connected directly to  my G4 tower Mac.  The HP drivers are installed and the software for Faxing is installed along with the other software, which was setup using the online instructions.
If you give HP enough information in your request for help, they'll reply with step by step instructions.  However, I'd  suggest you call for and purchase a copy of the User Guide and SetupGuide. There'll be another time when you'll want it.

The fax dosn't work,what should I do? I don't have ring tone, and can't receve.

Go to menu option and choose the option fax and set the parameter like auto receive or manual set the ring auto answer mode after certain ring. If it is in auto receiving mode it will receive the fax after the ring which you set. Make sure the phone wire which you insert in fax machine getting proper dial tone and getting out going calling facility.

How to receive fax documents

You cannot receive fax using this printer, because this printer doesn't support fax sending/receiving. Only fax supported printers can receive fax documents. You will know if a printer is fax support if you see a Fax button there or if you can see a numpad buttons where you can dial numbers.

These are the photo examples of fax printers

I recently got cable internet and digital phone.

I need a manufacturer name and model number. If you want to use the fax feature from the all in one, you simply plug a phone line into the machine, and it is ready to send and receive faxes

you can get the manual here: - LINK

Basically you plug your phone line into the fax machine line in and set the ring pick up to the desired length.

When someone calls you the fax should pick up and take the data.

Hp 5610 won't receive fax from lexmark fax

Are you able to receive faxes from others from the same location, if not just ask her to consult her service provider and ask to get the no checked of yours why is it that you she is not able to send fax to you only as your fax machine is capable of sending and receiving fax from others it should be dsome issue with her service provider.
If it was your All-In-One printer thrn you should not have received faxes from any one, not a specific number.

Good Luck

6210 all in one printer

Phone off hook means to say that the printer is connected to a fax line and the fax line is in use. That message won't disappear until you disconnect the phone cable on the printer or no one is using the line for fax.
