Question about HP 1050 Plain Paper Inkjet Fax

1 Answer

I cannot receive faxes. I have a voicemail set up on my phone that is in use. I would like to use the 1050 as a phone and a fax machine only. I will settle if I could only use it as a fax machine. I have tried fax mode, auto mode and tel mode.

If you have a voicemail set on the same line then you may only be able to use either the fax or the voice mail if you want to the fax then change the rings to answer on the fax to 2 (setup button->basic fax settings->rings to answer->press ok on 2) keep the mode to auto mode. However if you want to use both the voicemail and the fax on the same line you might have to get a DRP (Distinctive Ring Pattern) from you telephone company.

How to receive a fax


Check if the auto answer is turned on. Also, check the ring pattern if it is set to Auto. If this is a shared line with your phone and you have an answering machine, set your fax to pick up 5 rings higher than your answering machine.

If you have a voicemail service, you'll need to get a distinctive ring feature from your phone company for it to work.

Lexmark pinnacle pro901 will not receive faxes i can send but can not receive what do I do


Are you sharing your home phone line with your fax? Do you have an answering machine or a voicemail feature in the same line?
If you have an answering machine connected to the same line as the fax, set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the printer does. Increase the number of rings by a factor of 3 over the answering machine. For example, if the answering machine is set to pick up on 4 rings, set the printer to pick up on 7 rings.

If you have a voicemail feature in the same line as the fax, you may want to subscribe from your phone service provider for a distinctive ring pattern feature. You can program your printer to have a distinctive ring pattern and phone number for incoming faxes.

I just don't know how; do I just push the fax button when the phone rings or do I have to have a separate number for the fax machine? Sounds stupid, I know, but do I also need to block voicemail from...


Set the fax machine to Manual Receive. Set your answering machine to 4 or 5 rings. When the phone rings, pick it up, if you hear the chirping of a sending fax machine, press the Start Key on the fax and then hang up. The two faxes will communicate and you will receive your fax.

Not receiving faxes


make sure your answering machine is plugged in to the "EXT" jack on fax machine, and your main line plugged into "line". try setting fax rings to 1 or 2. set your answering machine to 4. your fax should intercept the call and if it hears the fax tone, will receive the fax. if it doesn't hear the fax tone, it should forward the call to your answering m/c.

Pixma MP530 Fax Problems


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.

Have you come across a solution? Aghhhhh!

Recieveing


If all else fails try the manual mode:(Press Receive Mode to select
FAX ONLY, FAX/TEL,TAD:ANSWER MACH. orMANUAL.)

Manual Reception
1
Pick up the handset while the phone is ringing.
2 Press Fax Start if you hear fax tones (beeps).
3 When the LCD shows RECEIVING, replace the handset.
(best used when you are expecting a fax and know that the incoming call is a fax)

If you are like most people you probably also have a phone with an answering machine or voicemail setup on your home phone. If this is the case you may want to set the reception made to
TAD:ANSWER MACH.

Setting the voicmail


Voicemail or telephone answering device (TAD). There is a BIG difference. Voicemail is product of your telephone service provider. If you have voicemail, most providers have a solution to this that you must arrange through them. If you have an answering machine, you can set your Brother to TAD mode. In TAD mode, if your answering machine picks up, (you must set your answering machine to answer in less rings than your fax), your fax will "eavesdrop" to listen for the fax tones from the sending machine. If it hears these tones, it will disconnect your answering machine and accept the incoming fax. If it does not hear the tones, it allows the answering machine to record the incoming message. If you are home. If you answer the call and hear a tone every 2.5 to 3 seconds, that signals an incoming fax. Simply touch *51 on the keypad of the phone you picked up on. You will hear some shrill tones. That is your fax machine attempting to receive the incoming fax. Hang up the phone you are on and it will receive the fax. In any case, make sure that the receive mode is NOT set to AUTO. Set the receive mode to TAD or MANUAL. If these instructions were not clear enough, let me know and I will send you DETAILED instructions.
