Adjusting the Baud rate is something that a Serviceman has to do....there is no need tho'...your machine is smart enough that when "modem training" takes place each time you place a call..both the fax machines "talk" to each other and figure out how fast or slow they have to work depending on each of the fax machines and the condition of the line in between. They will slow down "if necessary" all by themselves.
If your printer has FAX capabilities. Good way to tell is if you have a phone number pad on the front of your printer.
You must have this connected to a phone line for it to receive a fax. Setup the fax application through your installation CD that came with the Printer/fax machine. Often you set the fax machine to pick up after so many rings. This allows you to leave the printer/fax machine on and gives you time to answer BEFORE the fax machine does. If uncle Bob or Aunt Susie should call to say Hi!
Basically what is happening: You turn on the Printer/Fax machine it sits idle waiting for a phone call. Someone now sends you a fax using your phone number. YOUR printer/fax machine is sitting there listening for the phone to ring. Lets say you have your printer/fax machine setup to answer after 5 rings. After 5 rings, your Printer/fax machine will pick up and listen for signal tones from the the other machine. If it gets these, it will "handshake" and send a confirmation fax tone. Then the data will be transferred and printed out on your machine or held in a fax program for you to print or save later.
It is critical that you do not pickup the phone too early or the two fax machines trying to communicate will fail. If you do this, you will hear an awful squeal and a serious of tones. You can often hang up quickly and the two machines will transmit again the handshake signals and resume business as usual.
Short answer: Two fax modems are talking to each other over your phone line to transmit data.
>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.
