Question about HP Office Equipment & Supplies

I don't understand the one touch dialing on the HP 2140

I fax a menu to the same 75 numbers every day. I understand how to put the numbers into speed dial but can I "group" them to only touch one number to send them? I don't have the time to speed dial every number.

    It is an HP 2140 fax.

  • suzeo Jul 08, 2010

    Let me start all over. I have an HP 2140 fax machine and I want to fax to the same 75 numbers every day. I entered all of the numbers into speed dial but I want to be able to group them together and be able to hit one number and walk away from the machine. Is this possible with this machine? I can use the "broadcast" feature but I still have to enter one fax number at a time.

Hi Suzeo. Many HP fax machines have the function you are requesting. It is called the broadcast fax feature. Look in your owner manual for this feature. If I knew which model you have I would have researched it for you. IF by chance, your machine does not have this feature, it would be money well spent to replace your current machine with one that does. Depending on how many pages the daily fax is, I am estimating that you are spending an hour or more each day on this task. J.

    Hi Joe,



    The machine is HP 2140 and I just bought it. It has the broadcast feature, but I still have to enter each number one at a time. The manual says I can't use speed dial and the broadcasting. I can't stand in front of the fax machine and enter one number at a time. There has got to be a better way!

    Thanks Joe

Yes you can create group for speed dials, I am giving you step by step instructions herein, please note that the instructions are as general since you didn't mention the Model Name of your fax machine, but I do hope that this will be the same with yours.

The following instructions are the steps on how to set up "group speed dial" for hp fax machines;

  • Press the "Setup" button.
  • Press "2" and then press "2" again from the keypad. This will enter the
  • Group Speed dial "setup mode".
  • Type in the desired speed dial number, or use the Left and Right arrow buttons to scroll through available speed dials that have already been created.
  • Press "Enter" to save the selection, followed by "1" to add another speed dial or "2" to finish.
  • When all of the numbers have been entered, type in the name of the group using the keypad keys to scroll through the available numbers and letters. Use the "arrow" buttons to advance to the next or previous character.
  • Press "Enter" again when finished.

Please follow the instructions very carefully and slowly, otherwise you might make mistakes.

If you have problem with these instructions, please let me know with the model number/name or series of your hp fax machine.

Good luck.

Hello,

yes, its possible group your numbers, its called Fax broadcasting.

  • Press the "Fax" or "Menu" button. If going through the Menu, select "Broadcast Fax."
  • Insert the fax pages into the feeder.
  • Add each phone number manually, or enter speed dial numbers or other stored fax numbers, including pre-configured dialing groups. Insert a comma between each number to instruct the dialer to pause between numbers.
  • Press the "Start" button to send the fax.
Good luck.

    I used the Broadcasting but I still had to physically enter the phone numbers one by one. The instruction manual says you cannot use speed dial numbers for Broadcasting. I don't want to enter 75 fax numbers a day. In the manual it says "00-09" are used for one touch dialing; am I supposed to somehow group 10 numers to 00, 10 numbers to 01 etc,?

How do I set up speed dialing on my HP Officejet 5740


While "Speed Dialing" or "Speed Dial" is listed in its fax specifications on some sites, it appears to be a mislabeled categorization of its group fax feature as HP's manual makes no other mention of it--save to say, the "fax to multiple numbers" (or multiple recipients) feature. There does not appear to be a speed dial list, but there is a phone book feature for adding contacts (individual numbers) & groups. (The following is detailed in a more explanatory way on pages 65-66 of the user's manual (http://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Officejet-5740-e-All-in-One-Printer-series/6617253/model/6617254/manuals?cc=us&lang=en).

1. From the printer control display, touch Fax.
2. Touch Send Now.
3. Touch the telephone symbol to access its phone book feature.
4. Touch the person symbol for a phone book contact; or touch the multiple person symbol for a group of phone book contacts.
(Note: Contacts should be established before any of these could be added to any group.)
5. Touch + (plus sign) to add a contact/group; or touch the gear symbol (edit) to edit/delete a contact/group.
6. Touch Name.
7. Changes to contacts/groups:
•Adding a contact/group: type the name, & then touch Done.
••Adding a fax number to a contact: Touch Fax Number, enter this contact's fax number, & touch "Create".
••Adding a contact to a group: Touch Number of Members, select all of the contacts to add to this group from this printer's phone book, & touch Select followed by touching "Create".

•Editing: Select the contact/group name, & then touch Done. Then...
••Editing a Contact: touch Fax Number, enter the fax number, & touch Done.
••Editing a Group: touch Number of Members & deselect the contacts to remove from this group or touch + (plus sign) to add contacts to this group. Then touch Done.

•Deleting a contact/group: Select the name, & then touch Delete followed by touching Yes.

How do I send one fax to multiple receipents?


you need to set up a group to send to. So if the group is always changing this may not help much.

Groups allow you to send the same fax message to multiple numbers (broadcasting). You can store the Groups on your One-Touch keys or SpeedDial locations and then broadcast by pressing a One-Touch key and Fax Start or by pressing Search/Speed Dial, the three digit location and FaxStart. First, you will need to store each fax number you wish to includein your Group as either a One-Touch or Speed Dial number. Then, you can combine these numbers into a group. Finally, you can have up to six Groups, or you can assign up to 131 numbers to one large Group. Each Group uses one One-Touch key or Speed Dial location. To set up a Group, please follow these steps:


1. Press Menu, 2 (Fax), 3 (Set Auto Dial), 3 (Setup Groups).


2. Press the One-Touch key on which you wish to store the Group or pressSearch/Speed Dial followed by the three-digit Speed Dial location where you wish to store the Group. The LCD will read SETUP GROUP:G0 ENTER & SET.

Use the alphanumeric buttons on the device control panel to dial the number.
If the fax number you are calling has been assigned to a one-touch key, press that key.
