Use an identa call box. You set the distinctive ring pattern (1-2-3) and the box will route the call through depending on what number it is. I have two numbers on one line. I have a tee adapter on the phone plug with two phone cables coming out. Each phone cable one plugs into a small distinctive ring box. I set one box switch to 1, and the second box to 2. If the first phone# rings box 1 allows the signal through to the phone. If the fax line rings the phone won't ring, but the second box will pass connection to fax and vise versa.

I brought mine from Bell Canada phone store. It is called a identa-call box, or distinctive ring switch. Best way to go !

My phone and fax machine are on the same phone line, but with different numbers. So when it is on F/T setting, when our phone rings, the fax picks up and starts beeping (not screaming) on the 4th ring -...


Two different numbers on the same line means you're paying for "distinctive ring" service. One pattern of ringing for one number and another pattern for the other number. Your fax's owner's manual has the instructions for training the machine to answer on the correct pattern. If the book has disappeared, download it from here:

Hp office jet 5610 all in one printer--- am I able to fax without hooking up to a computer if yes how- thanks


All the HP office all-in-ones fax without computer hookup, simply place the fax on the load tray face up until you see the window state that the original is loaded. Then on the number pad dial the fax number you want to connect to, once that is done...press the black fax button and the machine will dial the number, once a connection is made the fax will feed itself through and complete. The only connection needed is an outgoing phone line. Just make sure that the phone line is in the right socket on the back. You will see icons by the sockets, the one with the phone icon is for a line to go to a phone headset....this is not the socket for the main phone line, ise the other one that says "line".

CHECK THE TELEPHONE NO.
Verify that you are dialing the number correctly. (i know its funny to ask)

Verify that you are dialing the number correctly. You must dial all of the numbers required to make a phone call from the same line. This includes numbers that must be dialed to access an outside line or to access long distance services.

TRY DIALING FROM THE FRONT PANEL
manually dial the number from the front panel of the fax.

If you have been using a speed dial or are faxing from the computer, print the page to be faxed and manually dial the number from the front panel of the fax. If the fax can be sent when dialed from the front panel, recreate the speed dial setting and insert some pauses.


Check the connections




Check the TELEPHONE LINE

Make sure that you have plugged the phone cord directly and securely into the wall jack and into the back port of the fax product. The fax port on your product is marked "Line," "To Wall Jack," or with a wall jack symbol.

Check LIU

Make sure the Line Interface Unit (box that the phone cord plugs into) is fully seated into the back of the fax product.

Remove the SPLITTER

Remove any other devices from the line such as splitters, credit card machines, or telephone answering machines.


Can try sending the Fax on Another Line


CHECK WITH DIFFERENT CABLE
Try using a different telephone cord.

Need to set up phone/fax instead of just fax


I have a HP Officejet J6480 All-In-One and needed the answering machine and fax to be on at the same time.  I called the help line at HP and they said I needed another phone line into the home but I tried this and it worked. 
First I got a different phone number for the fax machine - they do this for no charge at my phone company. This is not another physical line into the home - it is just another phone number with a different ring - it rings 2 fast rings for the fax machine instead of the phones regular one ring. I set the answering machine built into the phone to pick up after 4 rings and I set the fax machine to pick up on 2 rings. Be sure to set it so the fax pick up number of rings are less than the answering machine pick up number of rings.  It worked for me. Hope this works for you too.

Will not fax


Hook a phone to the fax line and try to dial out... a fax line is no different than a phone line at your house ,, don't use a multi line phone like the ones at the office use a phone like you would have at the house to hook the the fax line .. If you are able to dial out call someone and check the line for static and pops they can cause the fax not to work either.. Good Luck

Outgoing fax never goes


Do you have the same problem with different numbers that you fax to? Are you usinga voip phone service? I use Vonage and have a lot of trouble with faxing. Call the number you are faxing to with a different phone and listen for a fax tone.
