Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of the HP LaserJet 3330mfp, a
powerful business tool with the capabilities of a full range of office
equipment. You can use the product to fax, print, copy, and scan.
This guide was written to describe the fax functions of this product and
to help you complete the following tasks:
●
Connect your product to a phone line
●
Connect additional devices
●
Specify your fax settings
●
Set the answer mode and rings-to-answer
●
Enable answer ring patterns
We recommend that you save this Fax Guide so you can refer back to
instructions on specific fax features.
If you need general setup instructions for your product, such as
instructions for installing the print cartridge, installing the media input
trays and the automatic document feeder (ADF) input tray, installing the
product software, and connecting the product to a network, please see
the getting started guide that came with the product.
Connecting the product to a phone line
The first step toward using your fax is connecting the product to the
phone line.
Note
ENGB
In order for the product to fax correctly, it must be the first device connected
to the phone jack.
Introduction 5
To connect the product to a
phone line
1
Use these steps to connect the product to a
phone line, even if you have two telephone
numbers on that line and use a ring pattern
service (such as distinctive ring).
1
If a phone cord is plugged into the phone
jack, unplug the cord and set it aside.
2
Open the print cartridge door and swing
open the left side panel to reveal the
phone line sockets.
2
6 Chapter 1 Setting up
ENGB
3
3
Take the phone cord included with the
product and plug one end of it into the
product’s line socket (the socket on top).
Note
You must use the phone cord that came with
the product in order for the product to
function correctly.
4
Close the left side panel and the print
cartridge door. When closing the left side
panel, ensure the phone line is routed
through the upper notch in the panel.
5
Plug the other end of the phone cord into
the phone jack on the wall.
4
If you want to connect additional devices,
such as a phone, to the phone line, continue
to “Connecting additional devices” on page 8.
5
ENGB
If you do not want to connect other devices,
continue to “Specifying the fax settings” on
page 13.
Connecting the product to a phone line 7
Connecting additional devices
Depending on the setup of your phone lines, you can connect additional
devices to the phone line along with your HP LaserJet 3330.
As a general rule, no more than three or four devices should be
connected to a single phone line. If too many devices are connected to a
single phone line, one or more of the devices may not detect an
incoming call. If this occurs, disconnect one or more of the devices.
Note
The HP LaserJet 3330 cannot replace a computer modem. It will not act
as a data modem for sending and receiving e-mail, connecting to the
Internet, or communicating with other computers.
Dedicated fax line
If you connected your HP LaserJet 3330 to a phone line that is used only
for fax calls, you may want to connect the following devices:
●
Modem: You can connect a computer modem (external or internal)
to the fax line if you want to use the fax line for e-mail or for access
to the Internet, but you cannot send or receive faxes while using the
line for these purposes.
●
Extra phone: You can connect an extra phone to the fax line if you
want to make outgoing calls on the fax line.
You should not connect the following devices:
●
Answering machine or computer voicemail: If you use computer
voicemail, you must connect a modem (external or internal) to your
dedicated voice line. Then, use the dedicated voice line to connect
to the Internet and receive voicemail.
Shared phone line
If you connected your HP LaserJet 3330 to a phone line that is shared
between fax calls and voice calls, or if you have one phone line with two
phone numbers and a ring pattern service, you may want to connect the
following devices:
●
Modem: You can connect a computer modem (external or internal)
to the shared line if you want to use the shared line for e-mail or for
access to the Internet, but you cannot send or receive faxes while
using the line for these purposes.
●
Phone: You can connect a phone to the shared line if you want to
make or receive voice calls on the shared line.
●
Answering machine or computer voicemail: You should connect
these devices to the same phone jack as the product to make sure
the different devices do not interfere with one another.
8 Chapter 1 Setting up
ENGB
Note
It is possible to connect devices to another phone jack for the same phone
line (in another room, for example); however, the devices may interfere
with faxing and with each other.
How you connect the additional devices depends on whether the
devices have British Telecom sockets on the back. Phones or
combination phone answering machines do not have this socket and do
not need one. However, check your additional devices. Most answering
machines and some modems have British Telecom sockets. Many
external modems and internal modems in computers have RJ11
sockets.
After you have checked your additional devices, check the following table
and continue with the instructions shown:
To connect:
See the instructions:
One or more additional devices, all “To connect additional devices with
of which have British Telecom
British Telecom sockets” on
sockets

One or more additional devices,
any one of which has an RJ11
socket
ENGB
“To connect additional devices with
RJ11 or British Telecom sockets”

with RJ11 or British Telecom
sockets
Note
In the rare instance that you want to connect
two devices that do not have British Telecom
“Tel” sockets in addition to a phone and/or an
answering machine, you will not be able to
connect all of the devices to a single phone
jack. You might be able to connect devices to
another phone jack for this phone line.
However, if you have an answering machine,
connect it to the same phone jack as the
product.

If you have not yet connected your
product to a phone line, see “Connecting
the product to a phone line” on page 5
before proceeding. The product should
already be connected to the left side of
the phone jack.

Plug a dual adapter (not included) into
the phone cord for the product.
3
Unplug all of the additional devices you
want to connect from their power
sources.

14 Chapter 1 Setting up
ENGB
Note
Although most users leave the answer mode set to automatic, voice callers
who dial the fax phone number will hear fax tones if the phone is not
answered, or if they do not hang up by the specified number of
rings-to-answer. If you do not want voice callers to hear fax tones, use the
manual setting, but remember that fax calls are not received automatically.

Setting rings-to-answer
When the answer mode is set to automatic, the product’s
rings-to-answer setting determines the number of times the phone rings
before an incoming call is answered.
If the product is connected to a line receiving both fax and voice calls (a
shared line) with an answering machine, you may need to adjust the
rings-to-answer. The number of rings-to-answer for the product must be
greater than the rings-to-answer on the answering machine. This allows
the answering machine to answer the incoming call and record a
message if it is a voice call. When the answering machine answers the
call, the product listens to the call and automatically answers it if it
detects fax tones.
The default setting for rings-to-answer is two.

Enabling answer ring patterns
Ring pattern or distinctive ring service is available through some local
phone companies and allows you to have more than one phone number
on a single line. Each phone number has a unique ring pattern, allowing
you to answer voice calls and the product to answer fax calls.
If you subscribe to a ring pattern service with your phone company, you
must set the product to answer the correct ring pattern.
Note
If you do not have ring pattern service and you change the ring pattern
settings to something other than All Rings, the product might not be able
to receive faxes.

About speed-dial codes, one-touch keys, and group-dial
codes
You can store frequently dialed fax numbers or groups of fax numbers as
one-touch keys, speed-dial codes, or group-dial codes.
In the product’s phone book, there are a total of 275 codes available that
can be used for speed-dial codes and group-dial codes. For example, if
you program 225 of the codes as speed-dials, the remaining 50 can be
used for group-dials.
See the following procedures for more information about how to use
speed-dial codes, one-touch keys, and group-dial codes:
To program speed-dial codes and one-touch
keys
Speed-dial codes 1 through 9 are also associated with their

Inserting a dial prefix
A dial prefix is a number or group of numbers automatically added to the
beginning of every fax number you enter at the control panel or from the
software.
By default, this setting is off. You may want to turn this setting on and
enter a prefix if, for example, you have to dial a number such as 9 to get
a phone line outside your company’s phone system. While this setting is
on, you can still dial a fax number without the dial prefix by using manual
dial. For instructions, see “Using manual dial” on page 30.

Using manual dial
Normally, the product dials after you press fax/send. At times, however,
you might want the product to dial each number as you press it. For
example, if you are charging your fax call to a calling card, you may need
to dial the fax number, wait for the acceptance tone of your telephone
company, and then dial the calling card number. When dialing
internationally, you might need to dial part of the number and then listen
for dial tones before continuing to dial.
To use manual dial
1
Load the document into the ADF input tray.
2
Press fax/send.
3
Begin dialing. The fax number dials as you press each digit. This
allows you to wait for pauses, dial tones, international access tones,
or calling card acceptance tones before continuing to dial.

Troubleshooting
Use the information in this chapter to troubleshoot general fax issues.
For more advanced fax troubleshooting information, see the electronic
user guide.
Is your fax set up correctly?
Use the following checklist to help you define what is causing any faxing
problems you might be encountering.
●
Are you using the phone cord supplied with the product?
This product has been tested with the supplied phone cord to meet
RJ11 specifications.
●
Is the Fax/Phone line connector installed in the correct socket
on the product?
It should be plugged into the product’s line socket (the socket on top
with an “L” next to it). You must open the left side panel to access
the socket. See “Connecting the product to a phone line” on page 5
for details.
●
Is the Fax/Phone line connector seated into the socket on the
product?
Gently pull on the Fax/Phone line connector to make sure it is well
seated into the socket.
●
Is the phone wall jack working properly?
Verify that a dial tone exists by attaching a phone to the wall jack.
Can you hear a dial tone and can you make a phone call?
What type of phone line are you using?
ENGB
●
Dedicated line: A unique fax/phone number assigned to receive or
send faxes. The phone cord should be connected to the top port
inside the left side panel of the product (the one that is not labeled
with a telephone icon).
●
Shared phone line: A system where both phone calls and faxes
are received or sent using the same phone number and phone line.
A single standard phone line can only perform one function at a
time. You cannot send a fax while talking on the phone or while
connecting to the Internet using the same phone line.
Is your fax set up correctly? 33
●
PBX system: A business environment phone system. Standard
home phones and the HP LaserJet 3330 use an analog phone
signal. PBX systems are digital and are incompatible with standard
phones and with devices such as the HP LaserJet 3330. You need
to have access to a standard analog phone line in order to send and
receive faxes.
●
Roll-over lines: A phone system feature where, when one
incoming line is busy, the next call “rolls over” to the next available
line. Try attaching the product to the first incoming phone line. The
product will answer the phone after it rings the number of times set
in the product’s rings-to-answer setting. (See “Setting
rings-to-answer” on page 15.)
●
Distinctive ring service: The phone company can assign two
phone numbers to one physical line and assign each number a
distinctive ring pattern. Make sure the product is set to respond to
the correct distinctive ring pattern assigned to the fax phone number
by your phone service provider. (See “Enabling answer ring
patterns” on page 17.)
Are you using a surge protection device?
This is a device used between the wall jack and the product to protect
the product against electrical power passed through the phone lines.
These can cause some fax communication problems by degrading the
quality of the phone signal. If you are having problems sending or
receiving faxes and are using one of these devices, connect the product
directly to the phone jack on the wall to determine whether the problem
is with the surge protection device.
Are you using a phone company voice
messaging service?
This is a voice messaging service used to replace telephone answering
devices. If the messaging service’s rings-to-answer setting is lower than
the product’s rings-to-answer setting, the messaging service answers
the call and the product is not able to receive faxes. If the product’s
rings-to-answer setting is lower than that of the messaging service, the
product will answer all calls and no call will ever be routed to the
messaging service. The only voice messaging solution that can be
successfully used with the product is a stand-alone telephone answering
machine.
Are you using an answering machine?
An answering machine should be connected directly to the port located
inside the left side panel of the product that is labeled with the telephone
icon or should be shared on the same phone line extension.
34 Chapter 4 Troubleshooting
ENGB
Set the product’s rings-to-answer for one ring more than the number of
rings for which the answering machine is set. See “Setting
rings-to-answer” on page 15 for more information.
Note
If an answering machine is connected on the same phone line but on a
different jack, it may interfere with the product’s ability to receive faxes.
