Distinctive Ring basicsDistinctive Ring service is an optional service available from many telephone companies. The Distinctive Ring service permits you to assign more than one telephone number to the same telephone line. Distinctive Ring allows you to use a single phone line for both voice and fax calls. You can assign a unique phone number and ring pattern for incoming fax calls. When a fax comes in, each telephone number makes a distinctive ringing sound, such as a single ring, double ring, or triple ring.
NOTE: The Distinctive Ring Service is the name HP and others use to describe this feature. Distinctive Ring is also known as:

  • Call Sign
  • Custom Ring
  • Ident-a-Call
  • Ident-a-Ring
  • Ident-a-Ring
  • Multi Ring
  • Personalized Ringing
  • Ringmaster
  • Smart Ring
  • Teen-Ring
The Distinctive Ring Service allows the HP product to work similarly to a dedicated fax line. If you connect an HP fax product and a telephone to one telephone line, you can assign one telephone number for fax calls and another for voice calls.
NOTE: You cannot send or receive faxes when the phone line is in use. Even if the HP fax product has a separate telephone number, it is still sharing the same phone line. Set the Distinctive Ring Service Using the menus on the product control panel, follow these steps to set a distinctive ring pattern. Step one: Turn on Auto Answer Turn on Auto Answer by pressing the Auto Answer button on the control panel.

My HP Wireless tries to pickup non fax calls and then leaves the line open so my cordless phone will not allow me to take calls. Very frustrating as it happens often.

SOURCE: HP Photosmart all in one. Trouble with Telephone & fax rings

Hi Natalie,

Did you follow the instructions in your HP Photosmart 3110 AIO manual, starting on page 30? I'll assume that you set-up your printer using Case E or Case H, where you share a voice line with your fax service. If so, then you should set the AUTO ANSWER option to OFF per the instructions on page 50.

If you have an answering machine, then you should set up the printer using Case I, whereby you will set the AUTO ANSWER option to ON and then set the the RINGS TO ANSWER to a number greater than the number of rings for your answering machine to pick up.

I hope this helps. If you have another configuration that I haven't answered (i.e. other than Case E, H, or I), please reply back with your exact set-up.

Or if you have lost the manual, you can get it from this website:

If you found this answer useful, I would appreciate you leaving feedback.

Thanks,

Lee

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

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.

Fax machine will not receive faxes. Sending okay. Comes up with busy signal at sending point.


Check menu settings and confirm the machine is set for automatic answer. If its in manual mode, you have to hit the start/go button when the fax rings to accept the transmission.

I have a Uniden 5.8GHz DSS8955+1 and it's connected to my phone and fax. The problem is: everytime the fax rings, the answer machine works as it works when is a phone call. How do I set up the machine not...


Set your answering machine to pick up after four rings2.gif . This will give the fax machine enough time to take the call if it senses that it's an incoming fax. Setting the answering machine to pick up after four rings would give the fax machine enough time to accept the fax.
hope this was helpful .

How can i change the ringer on my fax machine?


Setting Ring Delay:
The Ring Delay setting determines the number of times the fax machine rings before it answers. If you have extension phones on the same line as the fax machine, keep the Ring Delay at a default setting of 4:
1 Press Function/Set, 2, 1.
2 Press < or > to select how many times the line rings before the fax machine answers (00 – 04) and press Function/Set. If you select 00, the line doesn’t ring at all.
3 Press Stop to exit.

Hope that's clear enough :)

How do I set up my X7170 to receive a FAX?


Link
Receiving a fax You can choose to receive a fax automatically, manually, or through an answering machine.
Note: For your All-In-One to receive a color fax, the machine from which you are receiving must also support color faxes.
Automatically Recommended for a dedicated fax line
Your All-In-One automatically accepts incoming faxes using the automatic answering mode. When the Auto Answer light is on, the All-In-One receives a fax after the specified number of rings set in the Options menu.
To set a number of rings for the automatic answering mode:
  1. On the control panel, press Mode repeatedly until Fax is selected.
  2. Press Options until ANSWER FAX WHEN appears.
  3. Press + to choose After 1 ring, After 2 rings, After 3 rings (default), or After 5 rings.
  4. Press Select.
  5. Make sure the Auto Answer light on the All-In-One is on.

  1. On the control panel, press Mode repeatedly until Fax is selected.
  2. Press Options until ANSWER FAX WHEN appears.
  3. Press + until After 5 rings appears.
