Question about HP Photosmart C6100 All-In-One Printer

Can't send or recive Faxes

I have not been able to send or receive faxes lately. I called my fax line to see if it was operational, and after 3 rings I got the usual FAX SOUND, so that appears to be working fine.

Yesterday we shut down the HP unit and left the power off for about 5 minutes. I then turned it back on and rebooted the computer. Scanning & printing functions work properly, but still no fax operation.

Please help, thanks.

    The fix sent by everyone was the same, "reset the unit to its' default settings"



    You all assumed that I know how to do this :-)



    Please send instructions, and I will follow through.

    Thanx, John

Choose the correct fax setup for your home or office
To fax successfully, you need to know what types of equipment and services (if any)
share the same phone line with the HP All-in-One. This is important because you might
need to connect some of your existing office equipment directly to the HP All-in-One, and
you might also need to change some fax settings before you can fax successfully.
To determine the best way to set up the HP All-in-One in your home or office, first read
through the questions in this section and record your answers. Next, refer to the table in
the following section and choose the recommended setup case based on your answers.
Make sure to read and answer the following questions in the order they are presented.
1. Do you have a digital subscriber line (DSL) service through your telephone
company? (DSL might be called ADSL in your country/region.)
❑ Yes, I have DSL.
❑ No.
If you answered Yes, proceed directly to Case B: Set up the HP All-in-One with
DSL. You do not need to continue answering questions.
If you answered No, please continue answering questions.
2. Do you have a private branch exchange (PBX) phone system or an integrated
services digital network (ISDN) system?
If you answered Yes, proceed directly to Case C: Set up the HP All-in-One with a
PBX phone system or an ISDN line. You do not need to continue answering
questions.
If you answered No, please continue answering questions.
3. Do you subscribe to a distinctive ring service through your telephone company that
provides multiple phone numbers with different ring patterns?
❑ Yes, I have distinctive ring.
❑ No.
If you answered Yes, proceed directly to Case D: Fax with a distinctive ring service
on the same line. You do not need to continue answering questions.
If you answered No, please continue answering questions.
Are you unsure if you have distinctive ring? Many phone companies offer a
distinctive ring feature that allows you to have several phone numbers on one phone
line.
When you subscribe to this service, each phone number will have a different ring
pattern. For example, you can have single, double, and triple rings for the different
numbers. You might assign one phone number with a single ring to your voice calls,
Countries/regions with a parallel-type phone system (continued)
Basics Guide 35
Fax setup
and another phone number with double rings to your fax calls. This allows you to tell
the difference between voice and fax calls when the phone rings.
4. Do you receive voice calls at the same phone number you will use for fax calls on
the HP All-in-One?
❑ Yes, I receive voice calls.
❑ No.
Please continue answering questions.
5. Do you have a computer dial-up modem on the same phone line as the HP All-in-
One?
❑ Yes, I have a computer dial-up modem.
❑ No.
Are you unsure if you use a computer dial-up modem? If you answer Yes to any of
the following questions, you are using a computer dial-up modem:
– Do you send and receive faxes directly to and from your computer software
applications through a dial-up connection?
– Do you send and receive e-mail messages on your computer through a dial-up
connection?
– Do you access the Internet from your computer through a dial-up connection?
Please continue answering questions.
6. Do you have an answering machine that answers voice calls at the same phone
number you will use for fax calls on the HP All-in-One?
❑ Yes, I have an answering machine.
❑ No.
Please continue answering questions.
7. Do you subscribe to a voice mail service through your telephone company at the
same phone number you will use for fax calls on the HP All-in-One?
❑ Yes, I have a voice mail service.
❑ No.
After you have completed answering the questions, proceed to the next section to
select your fax setup case.
Select your fax setup case
Now that you have answered all the questions about the equipment and services that
share the phone line with the HP All-in-One, you are ready to choose the best setup case
for your home or office.
From the first column in the following table, choose the combination of equipment and
services applicable to your home or office setting. Then look up the appropriate setup
case in the second or third column based on your phone system. Step-by-step
instructions are included for each case in the sections that follow.
If you have answered all the questions in the previous section and have none of the
described equipment or services, choose "None" from the first column in the table.
Note If your home or office setup is not described in this section, set up the
HP All-in-One as you would a regular analog phone. Make sure you use the phone
cord supplied in the box to connect one end to your telephone wall jack and the
other end to the port labeled 1-LINE on the back of the HP All-in-One. If you use
another phone cord, you might experience problems sending and receiving faxes.

Canon mf5770 not receiving faxes


Most fax machines allow you to set the number of times the phone rings before it automatically answers the phone. So if you phone goes to voice mail after 4 rings and the fax machine is set to start the fax after the 5th ring it will never receive the faxes because the call went to voice mail. Good Luck

How do I set up the fax feature?


Introduction The HP All-in-One can receive faxes automatically or manually depending on the Auto Answer setting. If the Auto Answer option is set to On (the default setting), the HP All-in-One will automatically answer incoming calls and receive faxes after the number of rings specified by the Rings to Answer setting. (The default Rings to Answer setting is five rings). Refer to the given instructions to receive faxes automatically or manually. Receiving faxes The HP All-in-One can receive faxes automatically or manually. Receiving a fax automatically To receive faxes automatically, set the Auto Answer option to On (the default setting).

My model Kodak 5500 printer/fax


Just found your post and I'm having the same problem. Everything else seems to be working correctly. I can copy, scan, print and I THINK I can send a fax correctly, I should have called the person and made sure it arrived. However, I cannot receive faxes. I have an answering machine on the line, but it is not plugged into the Kodak Pinter, it is in another room. The answering machine answered the call, the FAX noise came across, but the Kodak Printer never picked it up and printed out the fax. I think I have all the settings correct, but the instructions are not very clear. Do you think I HAVE to have the answering machine plugged into the Kodak Printer? That doesn't make sense, but I might try it.
