My fax machine will send a fax, but I can't receive a fax?


The fax machine may be in secure receiving mode. The following is from the User's Manual section on Faxing. downloadcenter samsung com

Receiving in secure receiving mode

You may need to prevent your received faxes from being accessed by unauthorized people. You can turn on secure receiving mode to restrict printing of received faxes when the machine is unattended. In secure receiving mode, all incoming faxes go into memory. When the mode is deactivated, any stored faxes are printed.

Activating secure receiving mode

  1. Press btn_fax.png(Fax) on the control panel.

  2. Press Menu until Advanced Fax appear.

  3. Press the left/right arrow until Secure Receive appear and press OK.

  4. Press the left/right arrow until On appear and press OK.

  5. Enter a four-digit password you want to use and press OK.
    note.png

    You can activate secure receiving mode without setting a password, but cannot protect your faxes.

  6. Re-enter the password to confirm it and press OK.

  7. Press Stop/Clear to return to ready mode.

When a fax is received in secure receiving mode, your machine stores it in memory and shows Secure Receive to let you know that there is a fax received.
Printing received faxes

  1. Access the Secure Receive menu by following steps 1 through 3 in "Activating secure receiving mode."

  2. Press the left/right arrow until Print appear and press OK.

  3. Enter the four-digit password and press OK.

    The machine prints all of the faxes stored in memory.

Deactivating secure receiving mode
  1. Access the Secure Receive menu by following steps 1 through 3 in "Activating secure receiving mode."

  2. Press the left/right arrow until Off appear and press OK.

  3. Enter the four-digit password and press OK.

    The mode is deactivated and the machine prints all faxes stored in memory.

  4. Press Stop/Clear to return to ready mode."

Cannot receive a FAX but can send FAX on a HP Photosmart C7180 All-in-One


are you using the same line for fax and phone???
are you using a Telephone Answeing machine or a Voice Mail??
However you can follow the following steps


1. Press the power button to turn off the HP fax product.
2. Wait for 20 seconds, and then press the power button to turn on the HP fax product, and then connect one end of a two-wire telephone cord to the telephone jack and the other end of the cord to the port labeled 1-Line on the back of the HP fax product.
3. Make sure that there is plain white paper in the input tray.
4. Press the Setup button on the product Control Panel.
5. Press the down arrow to select Tools, and then press OK.
6. On the Tools menu, press the down arrow to select "Run Fax Test", and then press OK. The Fax diagnostic test prints.
7. Review the report.
If the test lists faxing issues and solutions, the fax test failed.
Try the steps on the printout to troubleshoot the issue as the report is specific to your product and faxing environment.
Repeat the fax test after fixing the listed faxing issues to make sure the test passes. Try to receive a fax.
Okay, next, we need to make sure that the Auto Answer feature is turned on by following the steps below:
When the Auto Answer feature is on, the HP fax product automatically answers incoming fax calls. When off, the HP fax product does not answer any incoming fax calls.
1. Press the Setup button on the product Control Panel.
2. Press the down arrow to select Basic Fax Setup, and then press OK.
3. On the Basic Fax Setup menu, press the down arrow to select Auto Answer, and then press OK.
4. Press the down arrow to select On, and then press OK.
5. Try to receive a fax.
Since the issue persists, the problem could be due to some conflicting telephone services.
The following telephone company services might block or interfere with incoming faxes:
Distinctive Ring Service: A distinctive ring service, if it is available from the telephone service provider, often resolves this issue.
* Voice mail: It is possible to use the fax in manual receive mode while using a voice mail service. For manual receive mode, turn off auto answer and press "Start Fax Black" or "Start Fax Color" on the control panel before the voice mail picks up the line to start receiving the fax.
* Call waiting: Do not use a call waiting service on the same line connected to the fax machine. The click sound caused by an incoming call can cause the fax to fail.
* Privacy block
* Security screen
* Anonymous call rejection
* Privacy manager
* Any other service that screens or intercepts incoming calls
If any of these services are on the telephone line connected to the HP fax product, contact the telephone service provider for its recommended solution.
After addressing any existing conflicting telephone services, try to receive a fax.
Try contacting telephone people
try changing the settings below
1. Press the Setup button on the product Control Panel.
2. Press the down arrow to select Advanced Fax Setup, and then press OK.
3. Use the down arrow to select Fax Speed, and then press OK.
4. Use the down arrow to select Medium, and then press OK.
5. Try to receive a fax again. If the HP fax still cannot receive a fax, try lowering the fax speed even further
Next, change the "Rings to Answer" setting on the HP fax by following the steps below:
1. Press the Setup button on the product Control Panel.
2. Press the right arrow key to select Basic Fax Setup, and then press the OK button.
3. Press the down arrow to select Rings to Answer, and then press OK.
4. Use down arrow to select the desired number of rings, and then press OK. you cn change the rings to answer to 6 if your telephone answering machine picks up the call after 4 rings.
Try to receive a fax.
If the HP fax still cannot receive a fax, change the following steps
1. Press the Setup button on the product Control Panel.
2. Use the down arrow to select Advanced Fax Setup, and then press OK.
3. Use the down arrow to select Error Correction Mode, and then press OK.
4. Use the down arrow key to select Off, and then press OK.
1. Plug the telephone cord directly into the telephone jack and not through any other device.
2. If present, remove any splitters or other devices attached to the line, except for a DSL filter.
3. If the telephone cord is over 3 m (10 ft) long, move the fax closer to the telephone jack, and then use a cord 3 m (10 ft) long or shorter.
4. Connect the other end of the telephone cord directly to the back of the HP fax product into the port labeled 1-Line.
5. If other devices such as, telephone answering machines or computer modems, are attached to the telephone line, remove them. If devices attached to other extensions of the same telephone line are present, remove them for this test.
6. Try to receive a fax.
If removing telephone devices and connections allows the HP fax product to receive faxes, this indicates interference from one or more of the removed devices. Interference can be caused by incompatibility or by using too many other telephone devices at once. Telephone devices can be added back but test after adding each to make sure that they do not start to interfere again.
If the HP fax product still cannot receive a fax after removing other devices, continue with the following steps:
7. If a DSL filter is needed on the telephone line, change the DSL filter and then try to receive a fax. If the HP fax product still cannot receive a fax, proceed to step 8.
8. If a new telephone cord has not been tried, change the telephone cord to a new two-wire telephone cord, and then try to receive a fax again.
Try to receive a fax.
if it does not resolve then perform the following steps
1. Disconnect the power cord from the back of the product.
2. Wait for 20 seconds, and then press and hold # and 6 on the product Control Panel.
3. Connect the power cord to the back of the product and then release the buttons when the product turns on.
4. The product resets to factory defaults.
Try to receive a fax.
As a last step, test in another location by following the steps below:
If possible, move the HP fax product to another location with a separate telephone line (another house for instance).
Try to receive a fax at that location, and if you are able to receive faxes from the changed location, then your telephone line should be tested.
If it resolves well and good if it does not then service the printer

Hp officejet 6500 instructions for receiving a fax? Thanks


You can receive faxes automatically or manually. If you turn off the Auto Answer option, you must receive faxes manually. If you turn on the Auto Answer option (the default setting), the device automatically answers incoming calls and receives faxes after the number of rings that are specified by the Rings to Answer setting. (The default Rings to Answer setting is five rings.)
If you receive a legal-size fax and the device is not currently set to use legal-size paper, the device reduces the fax so that it fits on the paper that is loaded. If you have disabled the Automatic Reduction feature, the device prints the fax on two pages.
NOTE: If you are copying a document when a fax arrives, the fax is stored in the
device memory until the copying finishes. This can reduce the number of fax pages stored in memory.
This section contains the following topics:
• Receive a fax manually
• Set up backup fax reception
• Reprint received faxes from memory
• Poll to receive a fax
• Forward faxes to another number
• Set the paper size for received faxes
• Set automatic reduction for incoming faxes
• Block junk fax numbers
• Receive faxes to your computer (Fax to PC and Fax to Mac)
Receive a fax manually
When you are on the phone, the person you are speaking with can send you a fax while you are still connected. This is referred to as manual faxing. Use the instructions in this section to receive a manual fax.
NOTE: You can pick up the handset to talk or listen for fax tones.
You can receive faxes manually from a phone that is:
• Directly connected to the device (on the 2-EXT port)
• On the same phone line, but not directly connected to the device
NOTE: The automatic document feeder must be empty to receive a fax. If there are documents in the ADF, then the device will not be able to receive incoming faxes.
To receive a fax manually
1. Make sure the device is turned on and you have paper loaded in the input tray.
2. Remove any originals from the document feeder tray.
NOTE: The automatic document feeder must be empty to receive a fax. If there
are documents in the document feeder, then receiving the fax will be
unsuccessful.
3. Do one of the following to answer a fax manually:
• Set the Rings to Answer setting to a high number to allow you to answer the
incoming call before the device answers.
• Turn off the Auto Answer setting so that the device does not automatically
answer incoming calls.
4. If you are currently on the phone with the sender, instruct the sender to press Start on their fax machine.
5. When you hear fax tones from a sending fax machine, do the following:
a. Press START FAX Black or START FAX Color on the device control panel.
b. When prompted, select Fax Receive.
NOTE: Depending on your country/region, the device might receive the fax
automatically when you hear fax tones from the sending fax machine.
6. After the device begins to receive the fax, you can hang up the phone or remain on the line. The phone line is silent during fax transmission.

How to receive fax


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Phone line
  • Multi-function printer
  1. Step 1 Connect the multi-function printer to a phone line. Most printers with fax capability have more than one phone jack, so make sure you are plugged into the right one.
  2. Step 2 Turn the printer on and access the start-up menu. Pick an answering mode based on your expected usage of the fax capabilities of your machine (see the next steps for more information about this).
  3. Step 3 Put the printer in manual mode if you expect little fax traffic. The manual mode usually requires you to pick up every call that comes to the machine. If you hear the signal for a fax, you push the start button and hang up.
  4. Step 4 Choose the automatic mode if you expect a lot of faxes or have a dedicated fax line. In automatic mode, the printer listens to incoming calls and determines whether they are faxes or voice calls. Voice calls get sent on to your phone, and faxes are picked up by the printer.
  5. Step 5 Select the number of rings you want your multi-function printer to give you before dropping a call. If you are using the manual mode you may want to go with four or more rings. Two rings should be sufficient in the automatic mode.
  6. Step 6 Load paper into the paper tray. Check on the paper level frequently if you receive a lot of faxes.
  7. Step 7 Set the desired print quality, and you are ready to receive faxes.

You should be all set now to receive faxes.

Unable to receive faxes. Able to send and cartridge printing OK


There can be a few things wrong lets take it step by step
1)Receive mode,your receive mode must be set correctly.If you don't have a tel connected to it, you cant use it as a Manual receive mode,it must be set on Fax only.If there is a telephone connected to it and it is set on manual mode make sure your Incomming ring is set to ON,you will find it under additional functions,RX settings,Incomming ring.

2)Make sure you have enough memory to receive a Fax.Go additional function,dataregistration,TX settings,Erase failed TX,set it to on.

3)Make sure there is enough toner and paper for the machine.

4)Tone or Pulse Dialing,depents in witch country you are make sure it is set correctly Tone or Pulse.You will find it under user settings.

5)There can be a problem at the you local exchange,you can send faxes but the exchange can be faulty and you would be able to receive faxes.

6)And then there can be a problem with you fax machine' NCU PCB board,there is to gas arresters one for send and the other for receive.If one of them are faulty you will have to replace the NCU.The gas arresters is not available as a part.

How to set machine to receive incoming fax?


Quoted from the manual: The HP all-in-one will not automatically answer calls. You must receive all faxes manually by pressing Start Fax Black or Start Fax Color. For information on receiving faxes manually, see Receive a fax manually. You might use this setting if the majority of calls on this phone line are voice calls and you rarely receive faxes.
