You need to check the setup ..

The telephone line which is coming from out should be connected to the line 1 of the printer and Telephone answering machine should be connected to Line 2 .

2. You also need to check that after how many rings the Telephone answering machine answers the call you have to keep the "Rings to answer" 2 less than that of Telephone answering machine.

Lets assume that your Telephone Answering Machine answers the call after 4 rings then keep the rings to answer in All in One to 2

How to set Rings to Answer

1. Press the Setup button on the Front panel of the printer

2. Scroll Down and go to Basic Fax Setup - Select it

3. Scroll down and got to - Rings to Answer - Select it

4. Set the Rings here and then try Fax

it will fix the problem :)

You need to set your phone to pick up later than the fax machine. set it to pick up on the 4th or 5th ring, set the fax to pick up at 2 or 3. Better yet, get a distintive ring # set up by your phone co. then the fax will only recognize that ring.

Can't send or receive faxes


it's most likely the compression on the phone line or you need to set up your fax machine for proper receive mode.
Contact your phone service provider to see if they support faxes.
(Faxes cannot handle nearly as much compression as standard voice)

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.

Incoming faxes not received, all else works.


Hi there,

It is your phone answering machine that must pick up in three rings or less.

Therefore 4 is too much. I would not limit number for fax machine itself.

On receipt of fax sometimes seems like it will not work when answering machine picks up in the middle. However, leave it and it will work. Sometimes sender will hear your answering machine and cancel as well. So try to ensure they don't give up at other end as well.

Good Luck!

Phone Line Requirements for HP 6210 All-In-One Fax


If you do that I believe what will happen is that the Fax machine will answer your phone,unless you can set it to not answer until after so many rings, and you answer it first,beofere that number of rings. You will have to installor program  the software for the fax part of your printer .

Fax pick up


Greetings Nana, 
I believe that you can specify how many rings should occur before your Kodak 5500 Ai Printer automatically answers an incoming call (default = 4). 
If you have a dedicated fax line, set the Rings to Answer to 1 or 2.  If you have a shared line for voice/modem and fax, set the Rings to answer to 3, 4, or 5. This setting only applies if Answering Machine Mode is set to OFF.
When the Answering Machine mode is disabled, Rings to Answer applies and your AiO printer answers the call. When your AiO printer detects a fax tone, it receives the fax. When a voice call is received (no fax tone), the call is ignored.
1 Press Menu to display the main menu. 2 Press scroll down until Fax Settings is displayed. 3 Press OK to display the Adjust Fax Settings menu. 4 Press scroll down until Rings to Answer is selected. 5 Press right or left arrow to change the number of rings.
Give it a try, Nana, but let Kodak know if you need additional help. They will be there for you.
Ron Baird the friendly Kodak guy
