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

The phone cord that came with my HP all-in-one is not

long enough

for 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

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.
