Receive a fax

The HP All-in-One can receive faxes automatically or manually. If you turn off the

Auto Answer

option, you will need to receive faxes manually. If you turn on the



option (the default setting), the HP All-in-One automatically answers

incoming calls and receives faxes after the number of rings specified by the

Rings to


setting. (The default

Rings to Answer

setting is five rings.)

You can receive faxes manually from a phone that is:

Directly connected to the HP All-in-One (on the 2-EXT port)

On the same telephone line, but not directly connected to the HP All-in-One

If you receive a legal-size fax and the HP All-in-One is not currently set to use legal-
size paper, the device reduces the fax so that it fits on the paper that is loaded in the
HP All-in-One. If you have disabled the

Automatic Reduction

feature, the HP All-in-

One prints the fax on two pages.

Reprint received faxes from memory


If you installed a photo print cartridge for printing photos, you might

want to replace it with the black print cartridge when receiving faxes.
