HP Officejet 6210 All-in-One is not tested on VOIP connections when it was in manufactured. However these printers do work with VOIP connection.
If you are unable to get the printer working on VOIP connection, there are few ways to fix this.
1. Reduce the Fax speed of printer ( from Setup - Basic Fax Settings - Fax Speed ). Try to Fax If this does not work, try the step below
2. VOIP is Digital technology and HP 6210 works on Analog Signals ( standard telephone line ) - You need a DSL Filter which converts the Digital Signals to Analog and vice versa. This filter is available at any departmental store or computer accessory shop
- Connect the DSL Filter to phone socket. Connect the printer telephone cable to Analog port of DSL Filter ( to Line 1 Extn port of printer )
Either of this should fix the solution. However there is another solution which may or may not be possible. It is to reduce the baud rate on your Cable connection ( though not recommended )
the connectivity (phone line) first by pluging a working telephone in
the wall jack, than test the cable from the wall jack to the fax, you
could install a Y to plug a working telephone with the fax on the same
line to spy on what is happening when the fax is engaging a connection.
They're telling you your hardward doesn't play nice with their hardware. A few suggestions:
Update your printer, and see if any improvement is found: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=123&modelid=13371#DownloadDetailAct
If that doesn't work, see if your computer has a fax modem that itself can be updated and can support the hardware. Your multifunction printer has a scanner; you can scan in the things you want to fax, then fax from the computer if the computer can fax. This is starting to look like a Dr. Seuss book.
You can also try to learn more about what the problems are and look elsewhere. Your "digital" phone is actually voice over Internet, something VOIP. If you Google for VOIP FAX you'll find some information, like this: http://www.3cx.com/PBX/FAX-VOIP.html
I am having a similar problem. You do have to connect your phone to the jack in the machine in the "Phone" jack slot, as well as have another line out to the jack in the wall in the "L" slot. That is all I know. I am having problems with my voicemail. Either I can received voicemail, and no faxes, or faxes, and no voicemail (fax picks up at specified number of rings). It is EXTREMELY frustrating. The machine is *supposed* to be able to discern between phone calls and faxes..and that is not happening.
There are 2 ports on the rear, 1 for the incomming phone line, and one to plug in a telephone handset (passthrough)
if the telephone line is plugged into the wrong port, the fax machine is unable to dial properly,
So try plugging into the other port on the back, it's just next to the other port
hope this helps
