2 Phone cord supplied in the box with your HP all-in-one connected to the "1-LINE" port
To set up your HP all-in-one with a separate fax line
Using the phone cord supplied in the box with your HP all-in-one, connect one end
to your telephone wall jack, then connect the other end to the port labeled "1-LINE"
on the back of your HP all-in-one.
If you do not use the supplied cord to connect from the telephone
wall jack to your HP all-in-one, you might not be able to fax successfully.
This special phone cord is different from the phone cords you might already
have in your home or office. If the supplied phone cord is too short, see
phone cord that came with my HP all-in-one is not long enough
information on extending it.
Set up the HP all-in-one to answer incoming calls automatically. Press the
button until the light is on.
(Optional) Change the
Rings to Answer
setting to one ring or two rings.
For information on changing this setting, see
Set the number of rings before
Run a fax test. For information, see
Test your fax setup
When the phone rings, your HP all-in-one will answer automatically after the number of
rings you set in the
Rings to Answer
setting. Then it will begin emitting fax reception
tones to the sending fax machine and receive the fax.
