Send a fax in Error Correction Mode
Error Correction Mode (ECM) prevents loss of data due to poor phone lines by detecting errors that occur
during transmission and automatically requesting retransmission of the erroneous portion. Phone charges
are unaffected, or might even be reduced, on good phone lines. On poor phone lines, ECM increases sending
time and phone charges, but sends the data much more reliably. The default setting is On. Turn ECM off only if
it increases phone charges substantially, and if you can accept poorer quality in exchange for reduced
charges.
If you turn ECM off:
●
The quality and transmission speed of faxes you send and receive are affected.
●
The Speed is automatically set to Medium .
●
You can no longer send or receive faxes in color.

You can receive faxes automatically or manually. If you turn off the Auto Answer option, you must receive
faxes manually. If you turn on the Auto Answer option (the default setting), the printer automatically answers
incoming calls and receives faxes after the number of rings that are specified by the Rings to Answer setting.
(The default Rings to Answer setting is five rings.)
If you receive a Legal-size or larger fax and the printer is not currently set to use Legal-size paper, the printer
reduces the fax so that it fits on the paper that is loaded. If you have disabled the Auto Reduction feature, the
printer prints the fax on two pages.

On
The default setting. When Backup fax is On, the printer stores received faxes in memory. This
enables you to reprint the most recently printed faxes if they are still saved in memory.
NOTE: When printer memory is low, it overwrites the oldest, printed faxes as it receives new
faxes. If the memory becomes full of unprinted faxes, the printer stops answering incoming fax
calls.
NOTE: The received faxes are stored in the volatile memory. If the printer is turned off and then
on, the received faxes will no longer be available for reprinting.
NOTE: If you receive a fax that is too large, such as a very detailed color photo, it might not be
stored in memory due to memory limitations.
On Error Only
Causes the printer to store faxes in memory only if an error condition exists that prevents the
printer from printing the faxes (for example, if the printer runs out of paper). The printer continues
to store incoming faxes as long as there is memory available. (If the memory becomes full, the
printer stops answering incoming fax calls.) When the error condition is resolved, the faxes stored
in memory print automatically, and then they are deleted from memory.
Off
Faxes are never stored in memory. For example, you might want to turn off Backup fax for security
purposes. If an error condition occurs that prevents the printer from printing (for example, the
printer runs out of paper), the printer stops answering incoming fax calls.
Reprint received faxes from memory
The received faxes are stored in the volatile memory. If the printer is turned off and then on, the received
faxes will no longer be available for reprinting.
NOTE: After the memory becomes full, the printer cannot receive the new fax until you print or delete the
faxes from memory.You might also want to delete the faxes in memory for security or privacy purposes.

NOTE: You can cancel fax forwarding by selecting Off from the Fax Forwarding menu.
Set automatic reduction for incoming faxes
The Auto Reduction setting determines what the printer does if it receives a fax that is too large for the
loaded paper size. This setting is turned on by default, so the image of the incoming fax is reduced to fit on
one page, if possible. If this feature is turned off, information that does not fit on the first page is printed on
a second page. Auto Reduction is useful when you receive a Legal-size fax and Letter-size paper is loaded in
the input tray.

Block unwanted fax numbers
If you subscribe to a caller ID service through your phone provider, you can block specific fax numbers so the
printer does not receive faxes from those numbers. When an incoming fax call is received, the printer
compares the number to the list of junk fax numbers to determine if the call should be blocked. If the number
matches a number in the blocked fax numbers list, the fax is not received. (The maximum number of fax
numbers you can block varies by model.)

Set the number of rings before answering
If you turn on the Auto Answer setting, you can specify how many rings occur before incoming calls are
automatically answered.
The Rings to Answer setting is important if you have an answering machine on the same phone line as the
printer, because you want the answering machine to answer the phone before the printer does. The number
of rings to answer for the printer should be greater than the number of rings to answer for the answering
machine.
For example, set your answering machine to a low number of rings and the printer to answer in the maximum
number of rings. (The maximum number of rings varies by country/region.) In this setup, the answering
machine answers the call and the printer monitors the line. If the printer detects fax tones, it receives the fax.
If the call is a voice call, the answering machine records the incoming message.

Change the answer ring pattern for 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 number is assigned a different ring pattern. You can set
up the printer to answer incoming calls that have a specific ring pattern.
If you connect the printer to a line with distinctive ring, have your telephone company assign one ring pattern
to voice calls and another ring pattern to fax calls. HP recommends that you request double or triple rings for
a fax number. When the printer detects the specified ring pattern, it answers the call and receives the fax.
TIP: You can also use the Ring Pattern Detection feature in the Distinctive Ring menu to set distinctive ring.
With this feature, the printer recognizes and records the ring pattern of an incoming call and, based on this
call, automatically determines the distinctive ring pattern assigned by your telephone company to fax calls.
If you do not have a distinctive ring service, use the default ring pattern, which is All Standard Rings .
NOTE:
The printer cannot receive faxes when the main phone number is off the hook.

Fax and digital phone services
Many telephone companies provide their customers with digital phone services, such as the following:
●
DSL: A Digital subscriber line (DSL) service through your telephone company. (DSL might be called ADSL
in your country/region.)
●
PBX: A private branch exchange (PBX) phone system.
●
ISDN: An integrated services digital network (ISDN) system.
●
VoIP: A low-cost phone service that allows you to send and receive faxes with your printer by using the
Internet. This method is called Fax on Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).
For more information, see Fax on Voice over Internet Protocol on page 69.
HP printers are designed specifically for use with traditional analog phone services. If you are in a digital
phone environment (such as DSL/ADSL, PBX, or ISDN), you might need to use digital-to-analog filters or
converters when setting up the printer for faxing.
NOTE: HP does not guarantee that the printer will be compatible with all digital service lines or providers, in
all digital environments, or with all digital-to-analog converters. It is always recommended that you discuss
with the telephone company directly for the correct setup options based on their line services provided.

Chapter 6 Fax
ENWW
Fax on Voice over Internet Protocol
You might be able to subscribe to a low cost phone service that allows you to send and receive faxes with your
printer by using the Internet. This method is called Fax on Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP).
The following are indications you probably use a VoIP service.
●
Dial a special access code along with the fax number.
●
Have an IP converter box that connects to the Internet and provides analog phone ports for the fax
connection.
NOTE: You can only send and receive faxes by connecting a phone cord to the port labeled "1-LINE" on the
printer. This means that your connection to the Internet must be done either through a converter box (which
supplies regular analog phone jacks for fax connections) or your telephone company.
TIP: Support for traditional fax transmission over any Internet protocol telephone systems are often
limited. If you experience problems faxing, try using a slower fax speed or disabling the fax error-correction
mode (ECM). However, if you turn off ECM, you cannot send and receive color faxes.
For more information about changing the fax speed, see Set the fax speed on page 67. For more information
about using ECM, see Send a fax in Error Correction Mode on page 56.
If you have questions about Internet faxing, contact your Internet faxing services support department or your
local service provider for further assistance.

Use reports
You can set up the printer to print error reports and confirmation reports automatically for each fax you send
and receive. You can also manually print system reports as required; these reports provide useful system
information about the printer.
By default, the printer is set to print a report only if there is a problem sending or receiving a fax.
A confirmation message that indicates whether a fax was successfully sent appears briefly on the control
panel display after each transaction.
NOTE: If the reports are not legible, you can check the estimated ink levels from the control panel or the HP
software. For more information, see Check estimated ink levels on page 76.
NOTE: Ink level alerts and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When you receive a lowink alert, consider having a replacement cartridge available to avoid possible printing delays. You do not need
to replace the ink cartridges until the print quality becomes unacceptable.
NOTE: Ensure that the ink cartridges are in good conditions and installed properly. For more information,
see Manage ink cartridges on page 75.

NOTE: Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When you receive a
low-ink warning message, consider having a replacement ink cartridge available to avoid possible printing
delays. You do not have to replace the ink cartridges until the print quality is unacceptable.
NOTE: Ink from the ink cartridges is used in the printing process in a number of different ways, including in
the initialization process, which prepares the printer and cartridges for printing, and in printhead servicing,
which keeps print nozzles clear and ink flowing smoothly. In addition, some residual ink is left in the ink
cartridge after it is used. For more information, see www.hp.com/go/inkusage.

Tips for working with ink cartridges
Use the following tips to work with ink cartridges:
84
●
To protect the ink cartridges from drying out, always turn the printer off using the Power button, and
wait until the Power button light goes out.
●
Do not open or untape ink cartridges until you are ready to install them. Leaving tape on the ink
cartridges reduces ink evaporation.
●
Insert the ink cartridges into the correct slots. Match the color and icon of each ink cartridge to the color
and icon for each slot. Make sure the ink cartridges snap into place.
●
After you insert new ink cartridges, align the printer for best print quality. See Printing issues
on page 107 for more information.
●
When the Estimated Ink Levels in the printer software shows one or both ink cartridges in a low state,
consider getting replacement cartridges to avoid possible printing delays. You do not need to replace
the ink cartridges until print quality becomes unacceptable. See Replace ink cartridges on page 79 for
more information.
●
If you remove an ink cartridge from the printer for any reason, try to replace it again as soon as possible.
Outside of the printer, if unprotected, ink cartridges begin to dry out.

Ink cartridge issues
Fix ink cartridge problems
If an error occurs after a cartridge is installed, or if a message indicates a cartridge problem, try removing the
ink cartridges, verifying the protective piece of plastic tape has been removed from each ink cartridge, and
then reinserting the ink cartridges. If this does not work, clean the cartridge contacts. If the problem is still
not resolved, replace the ink cartridges. For information about replacing ink cartridges, see Replace ink
cartridges on page 79.
To clean cartridge contacts
CAUTION: The cleaning procedure should take only a few minutes. Make sure that the ink cartridges are
reinstalled in the printer as soon as possible. It is not recommended to leave the ink cartridges outside of the
printer longer than 30 minutes. This could result in damage to the printhead or the ink cartridges.

not hear a normal sounding dial tone, it might be a phone line set up for digital phones. Connect the
printer to an analog phone line and try sending or receiving a fax.
●
Check the connection between the telephone wall jack and the printer to make sure the phone cord is
secure.
Fax issues 121
●
Make sure you have correctly connected the printer to the telephone wall jack. Using the phone cord
supplied in the box with the printer, connect one end to your telephone wall jack, then connect the other
end to the port labeled 1-LINE on the back of the printer.
●
Other equipment, which uses the same phone line as the printer, might be causing the test to fail. To find
out if other equipment is causing a problem, disconnect everything from the phone line, and then run
the test again.
—
If the Fax Line Condition Test passes without the other equipment, then one or more pieces of the
equipment is causing problems; try adding them back one at a time and rerunning the test each
time, until you identify which piece of equipment is causing the problem.
—
If the Fax Line Condition Test fails without the other equipment, connect the printer to a working
phone line and continue reviewing the troubleshooting information in this section.
●
If you are using a phone splitter, this can cause faxing problems. (A splitter is a two-cord connector that
plugs into a telephone wall jack.) Try removing the splitter and connecting the printer directly to the
telephone wall jack.
●
Make sure you use the phone cord that came with the printer. If you do not use the supplied phone cord
to connect from the telephone wall jack to the printer, you might not be able to send or receive faxes.
After you plug in the phone cord that came with the printer, run the fax test again.
After you resolve any problems found, run the fax test again to make sure it passes and the printer is ready
for faxing. If the Fax Line Condition test continues to fail and you experience problems faxing, contact your
telephone company and have them check the phone line.

●
You are using the wrong type of phone cord. Make sure you are using the 2-wire phone cord that came
with the printer to connect the printer to your phone line. If the phone cord that came with the printer is
not long enough, you can use a longer phone cord to extend the length. You can purchase the cord at an
electronics store that carries phone accessories.
●
Other equipment that uses the same phone line as the printer might be in use. Make sure extension
phones (phones on the same phone line, but not connected to the printer) or other equipment are not in
use or off the hook. For example, you cannot use the printer for faxing if an extension phone is off the
hook, or if you are using a computer dial-up modem to send email or access the Internet.

The printer is having problems sending and receiving faxes
●
Make sure the Power button light of the printer is on. If the light is off and the printer display is blank,
make sure the power cord is firmly connected to the printer and plugged into a power outlet, and then
press the Power button to turn on the printer.
After turning on the printer, HP recommends you wait five minutes before sending or receiving a fax. The
printer cannot send or receive faxes while it is initializing after being turned on.
●
Make sure you used the phone cord supplied in the box with the printer to connect to the telephone wall
jack. One end of the phone cord should be connected to the port labeled 1-LINE on the back of the
printer and the other end to your telephone wall jack, as shown in the illustration.

ENWW
●
Try connecting a working phone and phone cord to the telephone wall jack that you are using for the
printer and check for a dial tone. If you do not hear a dial tone, call your local telephone company for
service.
●
Other equipment, which uses the same phone line as the printer, might be in use. For example, you
cannot use the printer for faxing if an extension phone is off the hook, or if you are using a computer
dial-up modem to send an email or access the Internet.
●
Check to see if another process has caused an error. Check the display or your computer for an error
message providing information about the problem and how to solve it. If there is an error, the printer
cannot send or receive a fax until the error condition is resolved.
●
The phone line connection might be noisy. Phone lines with poor sound quality (noise) can cause faxing
problems. Check the sound quality of the phone line by plugging a phone into the telephone wall jack
and listening for static or other noise. If you hear noise, turn Error Correction Mode (ECM) off and try
faxing again. For information about changing ECM, see Send a fax in Error Correction Mode on page 56. If
the problem persists, contact your telephone company.
●
If you are using a digital subscriber line (DSL) service, make sure that you have a DSL filter connected or
you cannot fax successfully. Click here to go online for more information.
●
Make sure the printer is not connected to a telephone wall jack that is set up for digital phones. To check
if your phone line is digital, connect a regular analog phone to the line and listen for a dial tone. If you do
not hear a normal sounding dial tone, it might be a phone line set up for digital phones.
Fax issues 123
●
If you are using either a private branch exchange (PBX) or an integrated services digital network (ISDN)
converter/terminal adapter, make sure the printer is connected to the correct port and the terminal
adapter is set to the correct switch type for your country/region, if possible. Click here to go online for
more information.
●
If the printer shares the same phone line with a DSL service, the DSL modem might not be grounded
correctly. If the DSL modem is not grounded correctly, it can create noise on the phone line. Phone lines
with poor sound quality (noise) can cause faxing problems. You can check the sound quality of the
phone line by plugging a phone into the telephone wall jack and listening for static or other noise. If you
hear noise, turn off your DSL modem and completely remove power for at least 15 minutes. Turn the
DSL modem back on and listen to the dial tone again.
NOTE: You might notice static on the phone line again in the future. If the printer stops sending and
receiving faxes, repeat this process.
If the phone line is still noisy, contact your telephone company. For information on turning your DSL
modem off, contact your DSL provider for support.
●
If you are using a phone splitter, this can cause faxing problems. (A splitter is a two-cord connector that
plugs into a telephone wall jack.) Try removing the splitter and connecting the printer directly to the
telephone wall jack.
The printer cannot receive faxes, but can send faxes
●
If you are not using a distinctive ring service, check to make sure that the Distinctive Ring feature on the
printer is set to All Standard Rings . For more information, see Change the answer ring pattern for
distinctive ring on page 65.
●
If Auto Answer is set to Off , you need to receive faxes manually; otherwise, the printer cannot receive
the fax. For information on receiving faxes manually, see Receive a fax manually on page 57.
●
If you have a voice mail service at the same phone number you use for fax calls, you must receive faxes
manually, not automatically. This means that you must be available to respond in person to incoming
fax calls. Learn more about setting up the printer when you have a voice mail service, click here to go
online for more information. For information on receiving faxes manually, see Receive a fax manually
on page 57.
●
If you have a computer dial-up modem on the same phone line with the printer, check to make sure that
the software that came with your modem is not set to receive faxes automatically. Modems that are set
up to receive faxes automatically take over the phone line to receive all incoming faxes, which prevents
the printer from receiving fax calls.
●
If you have an answering machine on the same phone line with the printer, you might have one of the
following problems:
—
Your answering machine might not be set up correctly with the printer.
—
Your outgoing message might be too long or too loud to allow the printer to detect fax tones, and
the sending fax machine might disconnect.
—
Your answering machine might not have enough quiet time after your outgoing message to allow
the printer to detect fax tones. This problem is most common with digital answering machines.
The following actions might help solve these problems:
124 Chapter 9 Solve a problem
ENWW
—
When you have an answering machine on the same phone line you use for fax calls, try connecting
the answering machine directly to the printer, click here to go online for more information.
—
Make sure the printer is set to receive faxes automatically. For information on setting up the
printer to receive faxes automatically, see Receive a fax on page 57.
—
Make sure the Rings to Answer setting is set to a greater number of rings than the answering
machine. For more information, see Set the number of rings before answering on page 65.
—
Disconnect the answering machine and then try receiving a fax. If faxing is successful without the
answering machine, the answering machine might be causing the problem.
—
Reconnect the answering machine and record your outgoing message again. Record a message
that is approximately 10 seconds in duration. Speak slowly and at a low volume when recording
your message. Leave at least 5 seconds of silence at the end of the voice message. There should be
no background noise when recording this silent time. Try to receive a fax again.
NOTE: Some digital answering machines might not retain the recorded silence at the end of your
outgoing message. Play back your outgoing message to check.
●
If the printer shares the same phone line with other types of phone equipment, such as an answering
machine, a computer dial-up modem, or a multi-port switch box, the fax signal level might be reduced.
The signal level can also be reduced if you use a splitter or connect extra cables to extend the length of
your phone. A reduced fax signal can cause problems during fax reception.
To find out if other equipment is causing a problem, disconnect everything except the printer from the
phone line, and then try to receive a fax. If you can receive faxes successfully without the other
equipment, one or more pieces of the other equipment is causing problems; try adding them back one at
a time and receiving a fax each time, until you identify which equipment is causing the problem.
●
If you have a special ring pattern for your fax phone number (using a distinctive ring service through
your telephone company), make sure that the Distinctive Ring feature on the printer is set to match. For
more information, see Change the answer ring pattern for distinctive ring on page 65.
The printer cannot send faxes, but can receive faxes
●
The printer might be dialing too fast or too soon. You might need to insert some pauses in the number
sequence. For example, if you need to access an outside line before dialing the phone number, insert
a pause following the access number. If your number is 95555555, and 9 accesses an outside line, you
might insert pauses as follows: 9-555-5555. To enter a pause in the fax number you are typing, touch
the * repeatedly, until a dash (-) appears on the display.
You can also send the fax using monitor dialing. This enables you to listen to the phone line as you dial.
You can set the pace of your dialing and respond to prompts as you dial. For more information, see Send
a fax using monitor dialing on page 55.
●
The number you entered when sending the fax is not in the proper format or the receiving fax machine is
having problems. To check this, try calling the fax number from a telephone and listen for fax tones. If
you cannot hear fax tones, the receiving fax machine might not be turned on or connected, or a voice
mail service could be interfering with the recipient's phone line. You can also ask the recipient to check
the receiving fax machine for any problems.
Fax tones are recorded on my answering machine
●
ENWW
When you have an answering machine on the same phone line you use for fax calls, try connecting the
answering machine directly to the printer, click here to go online for more information. If you do not
Fax issues 125
connect the answering machine as recommended, fax tones might be recorded on your answering
machine.
●
Make sure the printer is set to receive faxes automatically and that the Rings to Answer setting is
correct. The number of rings to answer for the printer should be greater than the number of rings to
answer for the answering machine. If the answering machine and the printer are set to the same
number of rings to answer, both devices answer the call and fax tones are recorded on the answering
machine.
●
Set your answering machine to a low number of rings and the printer to answer in the maximum number
of rings supported. (The maximum number of rings varies by country/region.) In this setup, the
answering machine answers the call and the printer monitors the line. If the printer detects fax tones,
the printer receives the fax. If the call is a voice call, the answering machine records the incoming
message. For more information, see Set the number of rings before answering on page 65.

Additional fax setup
In this section, you learn how to set up the printer so that faxing works successfully with equipment and
services you might already have on the same phone line.
TIP: You can also use the Fax Setup Wizard (Windows) or HP Utility (OS X) to help you quickly set up some
important fax settings such as the answer mode and fax header information. You can access these tools
through the HP software you installed with the printer. After you run these tools, follow the procedures in this
section to complete your fax setup.

Set up faxing (parallel phone systems)
Before you begin setting up the printer for faxing, determine which kind of phone system your country/region
uses. The instructions for fax setup differ depending on whether you have a serial- or parallel-type phone
system.
●
If you do not see your country/region listed in the table, you probably have a serial-type phone system.
In a serial-type phone system, the connector type on your shared telephone equipment (modems,
phones, and answering machines) does not allow a physical connection to the "2-EXT" port on the
printer. Instead, all equipment must be connected at the telephone wall jack.
NOTE: You might need to connect the phone cord to your country/region adapter.
●
If your country/region is listed in the table, you probably have a parallel-type telephone system. In
a parallel-type phone system, you are able to connect shared telephone equipment to the phone line by
using the "2-EXT" port on the back of the printer.
NOTE: If you have a parallel-type phone system, HP recommends you use the 2-wire phone cord
supplied with the printer to connect it to the telephone wall jack.

Select 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 printer. This is important because you might need to connect some of your existing office
equipment directly to the printer, and you might also need to change some fax settings before you can fax
successfully.

If you are using either a PBX phone system or an ISDN converter/terminal adapter, make sure you do the
following:
●
If you are using either a PBX or an ISDN converter/terminal adaptor, connect the printer to the port that
is designated for fax and phone use. Also, make sure that the terminal adapter is set to the correct
switch type for your country/region, if possible.
160 Appendix B Additional fax setup
ENWW
NOTE: Some ISDN systems allow you to configure the ports for specific phone equipment. For
example, you might have assigned one port for telephone and Group 3 fax and another port for multiple
purposes. If you have problems when connected to the fax/phone port of your ISDN converter, try using
the port designated for multiple purposes; it might be labeled "multi-combi" or something similar.
●
If you are using a PBX phone system, set the call waiting tone to "off."
NOTE: Many digital PBX systems include a call-waiting tone that is set to "on" by default. The call
waiting tone interferes with any fax transmission, and you cannot send or receive faxes with the printer.
Refer to the documentation that came with your PBX phone system for instructions on how to turn off
the call-waiting tone.
●
If you are using a PBX phone system, dial the number for an outside line before dialing the fax number.

NOTE: By default, the printer is set to answer all ring patterns. If you do not set the Distinctive Ring to
match the ring pattern assigned to your fax number, the printer might answer both voice calls and fax
calls or it might not answer at all.
TIP: You can also use the Ring Pattern Detection feature in the printer control panel to set distinctive
ring. With this feature, the printer recognizes and records the ring pattern of an incoming call and, based
on this call, automatically determines the distinctive ring pattern assigned by your telephone company
to fax calls. For more information, see Change the answer ring pattern for distinctive ring on page 65.

●
If you have a serial-type phone system, you might plug your phone directly on top of the printer
cable which has a wall plug attached to it.
Now you need to decide how you want the printer to answer calls, automatically or manually:
●
If you set up the printer to answer calls automatically, it answers all incoming calls and receives
faxes. The printer cannot distinguish between fax and voice calls in this case; if you suspect the call
is a voice call, you need to answer it before the printer answers the call. To set up the printer to
answer calls automatically, turn on the Auto Answer setting.
●
If you set up the printer to answer faxes manually, you must be available to respond in person to
incoming fax calls or the printer cannot receive faxes. To set up the printer to answer calls
manually, turn off the Auto Answer setting.
Run a fax test.
If you pick up the phone before the printer answers the call and hear fax tones from a sending fax machine,
you need to answer the fax call manually.
If you encounter problems setting up the printer with optional equipment, contact your local service provider
or vendor for further assistance.
Case F: Shared voice/fax line with voice mail
If you receive both voice calls and fax calls at the same phone number, and you also subscribe to a voice mail
service through your telephone company, set up the printer as described in this section.
NOTE: You cannot receive faxes automatically if you have a voice mail service at the same phone number
you use for fax calls. You must receive faxes manually; this means you must be available to respond in person
to incoming fax calls. If you want to receive faxes automatically instead, contact your telephone company to
subscribe to a distinctive ring service, or to obtain a separate phone line for faxing.

incoming fax tones are detected, the printer emits fax reception tones and receives the fax; if there are no fax
tones, the printer stops monitoring the line and your answering machine can record a voice message.
If you encounter problems setting up the printer with optional equipment, contact your local service provider
or vendor for further assistance.
Case J: Shared voice/fax line with computer modem and answering machine
If you receive both voice calls and fax calls at the same phone number, and you also have a computer modem
and answering machine connected on this phone line, set up the printer as described in this section.
NOTE: Since your computer dial-up modem shares the phone line with the printer, you cannot use both your
modem and the printer simultaneously. For example, you cannot use the printer for faxing while you are
using your computer dial-up modem to send an email or access the Internet.

There are two different ways to set up the printer with your computer based on the number of phone ports on
your computer. Before you begin, check your computer to see if it has one or two phone ports.
NOTE: If your computer has only one phone port, you need to purchase a parallel splitter (also called
a coupler), as shown in the illustration. (A parallel splitter has one RJ-11 port on the front and two RJ-11 ports
on the back. Do not use a two-line phone splitter, a serial splitter, or a parallel splitter which has two RJ-11
ports on the front and a plug on the back.)

5.
(Optional) If your answering machine does not have a built-in phone, for convenience you might want to
connect a phone to the back of your answering machine at the "OUT" port.
NOTE: If your answering machine does not let you connect an external phone, you can purchase and
use a parallel splitter (also known as a coupler) to connect both the answering machine and telephone to
the printer. You can use standard phone cords for these connections.
6.
If your modem software is set to receive faxes to your computer automatically, turn off that setting.
NOTE: If you do not turn off the automatic fax reception setting in your modem software, the printer
cannot receive faxes.
7.
Turn on the Auto Answer setting.
8.
Set your answering machine to answer after a low number of rings.
9.
Change the Rings to Answer setting on the printer to the maximum number of rings supported by the
product. (The maximum number of rings varies by country/region.)
10. Run a fax test.
When the phone rings, your answering machine answers after the number of rings you have set, and then
plays your recorded greeting. The printer monitors the call during this time, "listening" for fax tones. If
incoming fax tones are detected, the printer emits fax reception tones and receives the fax; if there are no fax

If you encounter problems setting up the printer with optional equipment, contact your local service provider
or vendor for further assistance.
Case K: Shared voice/fax line with computer dial-up modem and voice mail
If you receive both voice calls and fax calls at the same phone number, use a computer dial-up modem on the
same phone line, and subscribe to a voice mail service through your telephone company, set up the printer as
described in this section.
NOTE: You cannot receive faxes automatically if you have a voice mail service at the same phone number
you use for fax calls. You must receive faxes manually; this means you must be available to respond in person
to incoming fax calls. If you want to receive faxes automatically instead, contact your telephone company to
subscribe to a distinctive ring service, or to obtain a separate phone line for faxing.
Since your computer dial-up modem shares the phone line with the printer, you cannot use both your modem
and the printer simultaneously. For example, you cannot use the printer for faxing if you are using your
computer dial-up modem to send an email or access the Internet.

Test fax setup
You can test your fax setup to check the status of the printer and to make sure it is set up correctly for faxing.
Perform this test after you have completed setting up the printer for faxing. The test does the following:
●
Tests the fax hardware
●
Verifies the correct type of phone cord is connected to the printer
●
Checks that the phone cord is plugged into the correct port
●
Checks for a dial tone
●
Checks for an active phone line
●
Tests the status of your phone line connection
The printer prints a report with the results of the test. If the test fails, review the report for information on
how to fix the problem and rerun the test.
To test fax setup via the printer control panel
1.
Set up the printer for faxing according to your particular home or office setup instructions.
2.
Make sure the ink cartridges are installed, and that full-size paper is loaded in the input tray before
starting the test.
3.
From the printer control panel, touch Fax .
4.
Touch Setup .
5.
Touch Tools , and then touch Test Fax .
The printer displays the status of the test on the display and prints a report.
6.
ENWW
Review the report.
●
If the test passes and you are still having problems faxing, check the fax settings listed in the
report to verify the settings are correct. A blank or incorrect fax setting can cause problems faxing.
●
If the test fails, review the report for more information on how to fix any problems found.
