We can dial out as a phone. If we call the fax number, the line is busy. Auto-answer is on, with 2 rings set. We power-cycled the system. Any other advice?

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.

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.

>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.

Panasonic KX-FL511 cannot receive faxes but can send

check to see if your phone line is plugged in the " L" or line slot on your fax machine if it is then press the speaker or monitor key and listen for dial tone. then you put a document into the feeder and dial your cell phone number and press send, when your cell phone rings answer and listen if you are getting a high pitched squeel. if you are then it should be working. try it the other way too by dialing from your cell and listen again for the squeel. if you still don't get the squeel you have a defective modem.

Thank You,


Thank You,

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.
