HP L7650 will not auto answer incoming faxes


To set the answer mode to manual or automatic via the control panel

? Press Auto Answer to turn the light on or off, as appropriate for your setup.

When the Auto Answer light is on, the device answers calls automatically. When

the light is off, the it does not answer calls.

To set the answer mode to manual or automatic via the embedded Web server

1. Open the embedded Web server, click the Settings tab, click Fax in the left pane,

and then click the Basic sub-tab.

2. Select On or Off in the Auto Answer drop-down menu in the Other Basic Fax

Settings section.

Set the number of rings before answering

If you turn on the Auto Answer setting, you can specify how many rings occur before

incoming calls are automatically answered.

The Rings to Answer setting is important if you have an answering machine on the

same phone line as the device, because you want the answering machine to answer

the phone before the device does. The number of rings to answer for the device

should be greater than the number of rings to answer for the answering machine.

For example, set your answering machine to a low number of rings and the device to

answer in the maximum number of rings. (The maximum number of rings varies by

country/region.) In this setup, the answering machine answers the call and the device

monitors the line. If the device detects fax tones, it receives the fax. If the call is a

voice call, the answering machine records the incoming message.

To set the number of rings before answering via the control panel

1. Press Setup.

2. Press Basic Fax Setup, and then press Rings to Answer.

3. Enter the appropriate number of rings by using the keypad, or press the left or right

arrow button to change the number of rings.

4. Press OK to accept the setting.

To set the number of rings before answering via the embedded Web server

1. Open the embedded Web server, click the Settings tab, click Fax in the left pane

and then click the Basic sub-tab.

2. Select a number in the Rings-to-answer drop-down menu in the Other Basic Fax
Settings
section.

I am getting rid of my dedicated fax line and am adding it to my land line. I am told when I have a fax coming in I will hear a double ring which mean my fax line is ringing. How do I set my fax to...


There are two ways to configure a fax machine to answer the phone line. The first way is by pushing the "auto answer" key on the keyboard of the fax itself. When this key is used, the fax machine answers all calls that come in after a certain number of rings. The other way is to manually press the fax button when an incoming call is happening. You can set the number of rings for your machine to pick up by using the keys on the fax machine under the menu feature and then scroll using the up and down arrow keys until you see fax set up and then number of rings.

I have heard about the option that your speaking of, where they give you a separate phone number for your customers to fax when you own a business line but I don't know how the fax machine itself would be able to distinguish between the normal ring of a regular call and the double ring of the merged fax line call. I was told that when I set that up for my friends business recently, that the machine would auto recognize the double ring without any programming and to use the auto answer feature for all calls. He has not had any faxes yet (its a new business) so I can't say for sure if it works or not? I can say that none of his regular calls have been picked up by the fax so far though.

CAN NOT GET FAXES? I DO HAVE DIAL TONE IT IS ON


Here are some things you can try, hopefully one will help.
  1. Check for a phone connection in the correct input jack. Some printers with fax capability have more than one phone jack so you can hook up an answering machine or another phone “downstream” from the printer. Consult your instruction manual to determine the right connection for your printer.
  2. Ensure that you are running on an analog line. IP phones can not run most Faxes, even if you get a dial tone. Also in a corperate setting ensure that you are not on a digital line.
  3. If an answering machine is connected to the same line, fax reception problems can occur. These problems may be corrected by changing settings or phone line connections. If you have other faxes on the same line as this one, ensure that the "Rings to Answer" setting is set to a number equal to or larger than one for models that do not have an Auto Answer button. Same goes for your answering machines. On models with an Answer Mode setting, it should be set to Fax, FaxTel, or AnswerMachine depending on your setup.

IT WILL RING BUT GOES TO ANSWERING MACHINE DOES NOT RECEIVE FAX


>first run fax test, press set up go to tools menu then select run fax test,all entries should be pass
>then check your connections, do you have one line or number for your fax and phone?or a separate line or another number for fax and another number for phone?
>let me assume you only have one number for fax and phone..
>check connections, this should be downstream connection, the fax machine using the black phone cord provided by hp should be connected directly to the phone jack using line 1 at the back of the fax and the answering machine or the telephone should be connected to ext 2 or line 2 at the back of the fax...there should be no other devices phone or answering machine connected directly to the phone jack.
>next set rings to answer on the fax machine higher than the answering machine...if your rings to answer on answering machine is 4 rings, set the fax to 6 rings...if it is a voice call the answering machine will pick it up at 4 rings then if it detects that it it a fax tone then it will transfer the call to fax.
>also check if auto answer is on in your fax
>you can check auto answer and rings to answer by pressing set up or menu button on your machine look for it in basic fax settings or advance settings
>also check if your voice prompt for your answering machine is not too short there should be like at least 5 seconds after cutting your message to allow the machine to transfer the call to the fax if it is a fax tone.

Me again 2210xi all in one fax problem


The "tags" says no dial tone, so I wonder if you can send faxes? If not I would suspect the connection is not correct. The preferred setup would be to connect the phone line from the wall to the line input of the 2210 and then plug the phone (and answering machine) into the phone output on the 2210. Looking from the back the should plug into the jack on the right and the line to the wall should plug into the jack on the left. It is possible (??) that the 2210 will not present an autoanswer option if an active phone line is not connected. You can see the setup instructions for the Fax here. Note HP recommends using only a 2-wire phone line.

Also, do you have DSL on the same line? This can cause some issues.

Phone line and fax line


If you actually have a 2 line setup with 2 #'s each with it's own separate line, it's wired backwards. Otherwise (distinctive ring, etc) the machine has to be capable of and set-up to recognize which ring pattern is a fax call.
Also, you have to enable auto-answer on the fax machine.
