Case D: Fax with a distinctive ring service on the same line
If you subscribe to a distinctive ring service (through your telephone company) that
allows you to have multiple phone numbers on one phone line, each with a different
ring pattern, set up the HP All-in-One as described in this section.

To set up the HP All-in-One with a distinctive ring service
Using the phone cord supplied in the box with the 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 the HP All-in-One.
If you do not use the supplied cord to connect from the telephone
wall jack to the 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.
Turn on the
setting to match the pattern that the telephone
company assigned to your fax number.
By default, the HP All-in-One is set to answer all ring patterns. If
you do not set the

your fax number, the HP All-in-One might answer both voice calls and fax
calls or it might not answer at all.
(Optional) Change the
Rings to Answer
setting to the lowest setting (two rings).
Run a fax test.
The HP All-in-One will automatically answer incoming calls that have the ring pattern
you selected (
setting) after the number of rings you selected (
setting). Then it will begin emitting fax reception tones to the sending fax
machine and receive the fax.
