Question about HP LaserJet 2840 All-In-One Printer
2840 rings incoming faxes but will not pick up until you hit the start fax button. Shouldnt the fax just pick up? It is plugged into just a phone line.
Hi Greg- double check to make sure the machine is set for auto pick up.To do this:
1)On the control panel press MENU
2)Use the < or the > button to select Fax setup, then press ENTER.
3)Use the < or the > button to select Fax Recv. Setup and then press ENTER.
4)Press ENTER to select answer mode.
5)Use the < or the > button to select Automatic, then press ENTER.
The control panel display shows the answer mode you specified.

If you have an answering machine connected to the same
line as the fax, set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the
printer does. Increase the number of rings by a factor of 3 over the answering
machine. For example, if the answering machine is set to pick up on 4 rings,
set the printer to pick up on 7 rings.
If you have a voicemail feature in the same line as the fax, you may subscribe from your phone service provider for a distinctive ring pattern feature. You can program your printer to have a distinctive ring pattern and phone number for incoming faxes.
