Hi my hp 640 will not answer a fax call, but will answer only if we pick up the hand set.


Issue When the all-in-one product is sharing a phone line with voice calls, some calls are interrupted by fax tones. Follow the steps below to solve the problem.Step one: Check the Rings to Answer setting If Auto Answer is enabled, the HP fax product will answer the phone line when the number of rings reaches the number of rings specified in the Rings-to-Answer setting. When voice calls will be received on the same phone line as faxes, set to rings-to-answer to 6. If you do not want the fax to answer automatically, either turn off Auto Answer from the front panel and receive faxes manually (this may result in lost faxes) or subscribe to a distinctive ring service from the phone company (if available). Refer to the Answering faxes manually section below to learn how to answer faxes manually or refer to the Using distinctive ringing section below for more information about using distinctive ringing. The Rings-to-answer setting for the HP Officejet 500 and 600 series products can only be checked or set using the all-in-one software on the computer. The Rings-to-answer setting for the HP Officejet 500 and 600 series products can only be checked or set using the all-in-one software on the computer. Follow the steps below to check or change the setting for all models except the HP Officejet 500 and 600 series:
  1. Depending on the model, press either Menu , Setup , or Fax Setup repeatedly until Basic Fax Setup appears in the display.
  2. Press Enter (or Start or OK ).
  3. Press the right arrow button repeatedly until Rings to Answer is displayed, and then press Enter .
  4. The number of rings before the HP fax product answers will be displayed.
    • The setting is correct if it is 6. Press Cancel or Stop (Stop Fax) to exit the menu.
    • If the number is not 6, press the right arrow button until 6 appears in the display and then press Enter (or Start or OK ).

My fax goes off periodicall when a call comes in.


It means that your fax machine is "answering" the incoming call before you pick up the handset. Usually, the factory setting on the fax machine picks up after two incoming rings. There are three ways you can address this issue: 1.) You can either change the number of rings to, say, five incoming rings to give you enough time to answer the phone before the fax machine picks up, or 2,) you can find out if your fax machine has a feature that allows for the voice hook "click over" that will allow you to override the fax when you pick up your handset, or 3.) turn your fax machine off until you need to send a fax.

If you want to investigate number 2.), then you'll need your operator's manual.

Good luck.

Fax machine won't answer and pickup. I have to manually pick up the receiver and press start. This just started a few days ago.


You probably have it in the fax/tel or TAD mode. Press the butoon on the top right side of the keyboard marked "mode" until the light above it is on "fax" only. This mode (fax/tel) is for phones/faxes hooked to an answering machine. The "fax" mode puts in into the direct answer mode as a fax machine.

Hp photosmart 2610 all in one series. I can receive faxes but can't send them


First, in the FAX mode, scroll to PRINT REPORTS on your HP's display. You can then print out all fax activity, including failed SENDS. There should be an error code associated with the failure, and this may help to point you in the right direction. Using the HOOK button on your fax, call your cell phone. If your cell rings, answer it, and listen for the FAX TONES. If your cell does not ring, press the MENU button on your HP, and scroll to either FAX SETTINGS, FAX SETUP, INITIAL SETUP, or FAX SEND MODE. Try changing , one-by-one, any settings related to sending faxes. Be sure to write down the original setting before you change it.

I can't figure out how to set up my fax machine so it won't mess up my phone and answering machine either.


Telephone wire goes to fax, out to answer machine, Important to set fax on answer machine mode and set the ring count to pick up AFTER the telephone answer machine. Set fax ring count to 5 rings, and answering machine to 3 or 4. When some one calls answer machine or you pick up first, then if no one will leave a msg. fax tones are different than voice tones, they are called CNG tones. Most new fax machine will sense this and if a fax will go to fax only. Ring count is the key. Also you could set fax up for maual mode and would not jump to anser machine or fax till you want.....good luck

Brother Intellifax 1270


There is a help menu on this machine. To print this out, just press the help button. To change the fax/tel ring, 1st have in mind how you want your fax machine to work. Do you have an a TAD connected? Do you want the fax machine to take priority over tel calls? The fax machine seizes the line after the set number of rings, that means any other device connected to other phone outlets, will not answer after the fax has answered. Have this in mind when you set the ring time. The TAD will have it's own ring time too.

Machine does not answer phone


Some things to check-

I know you said it wasn't unplugged but check the phone line is plugged into the line socket. I don't know how many times I had people who people unknown to them (children, cleaners) have knocked out the line cord and plugged it back in the wrong socket.

Hit the on-hook or hook button and check for dial tone. This will check if the line is still working.

Also the fax will have a mode button. If it has been bumped while moving it could be on manual mode (the machine will not automatically pick up)

To recieve fax on brother


Press the 'RECEIVE MODE' button on the right side of the control panel, its next to the large 'FAX START' button. Here are your options :

Select Receive Mode
MANUAL
—You must answer all calls yourself. If you hear fax tones, press
Fax Start
to begin receiving the fax, then hang up. You can use this mode with
Distinctive Ringing. (See
Distinctive Ring
, page 8-1.)
FAX ONLY
—The fax machine automatically answers every call as a fax call. You
cannot receive a voice call, but you can dial out and make a voice call.
FAX/TEL
—The fax machine automatically answers every call. If the call is a fax, it
prints the fax. If the call is not a fax, it signals you with a double-ring (ring-ring),
different from the phone company ringing, to alert you to pick up the call. If you select
this setting, you’ll need to set the Ring Delay and F/T Ring Time features (on the
following pages). If you have extension phones on the same line as the fax machine,
set Ring Delay to 4. (See
For FAX/TEL Mode Only
, page 5-5.)
TAD:ANSWER MACH.
—This is the only setting in which you can use an external
answering machine. Your telephone answering device is connected to your fax
machine, and answers every call. Once the TAD answers, the fax machine listens for
fax tones. If it detects fax tones, it prints the fax.
The TAD setting works
only
with an external telephone answering device (TAD); it
does not work with telephone company Voice Mail. Ring Delay and F/T Ring Time
do
not
work in this setting.

Hooking up a fax machine on home telephone line


Well... the problem is that you are running two machines on one line. ONE of them has to take predominance. Both machines should have settings for "number of rings to answer at". It sounds like you currently have the fax set to less than the answering machine, so the fax picks up after two rings, while your answering machine might be set to more, which it never gets to, because the fax answered the call already(It doesn't matter if you answer the phone, or the fax picks up, once the line is open, the answering machine is taken out of the equation). Even if you set the answering machine to answer first, you're then taking the fax service out of the loop. I'm not sure how you're going to juggle that, since both types of machines each need control over the line to work properly. That's why we (business machine folk) always recommend a dedicated line for fax service.
