We have the L 7680. Last week we changed from ATT dsl line with filter to ATT Uverse. They installed. With the change, our fax stopped working in/out. It reads as No Answer from outbound attempts and...


The Uverse service appears to be all digital - so any voice/phone channels are going to be VOIP....not real analog lines as you had before. So, you need to connect the HP fax to a phone line service. Did ATT provide you a phone number? (or perhaps 2 phone numbers) Then the fax should be connected to that line. If you are unsure, then connect a phone to the provided line and listen for dial tone. If you are connecting a fax to a VOIP line then a good suggestion is to drop the fax speed to 9600....this will provide more reliable connections. Hope this helps

How to set up fax number on my 7310 all-in-one.


According to the HP manual for this unit:

1. Verify that your HP all-in-one is set to answer fax calls automatically. (Press the Auto Answer button so the light is on.)
2. Press Setup.
3. Press 5, and then press 1.This displays the Advanced Fax Setup menu and then selects Answer Ring Pattern.
4. Press the down arrow key to highlight an option, and then press OK. When the phone rings with the ring pattern assigned to your fax phone line, the HP all-in-one answers the call and receives the fax.

You can download the manual from HP here if you've misplaced yours and need more setup information.

Phone lines


You will have to split those telephone line from the incoming jack. There should be a pair of wires for each line already coming into the home. You will have to figure out which pair is which. You can look at you telephone punch board where the line enter you home to try and narrow down which pair of wires goes to which line. You should be able to install a jack to seperate out one line.

Good luck

Can't receive fax - fax rings 2ce then just stops / says phone off hook


Hi Iryan,

Instead of switch box, a more dependable option is to get a distinctive ring. Your local phone company offers this option. What's neat about is you get a seperate fax number. Its like having a dedicated fax line without adding extra lines to your service. I think the monthly fee is around 3 dollars a month for this feature, but, believe me its well worth it.

Fax query


This sounds like you have smart ring on your home line. Smart ring lets you have 2 seperate telephone numbers, One for fax and another for phone, but 2 distinctive rings all one one line. Check your manual to see if you have this feature and to set it up.
