HP 1250 Fax - Block Unwanted (Junk) Fax Numbers

Introduction

If you subscribe to a caller ID service through your phone provider, you can block specific fax numbers, so the HP Fax does not print faxes received from those numbers in the future. When an incoming fax call is received, the HP Fax compares the number to the list of junk fax numbers you set up to determine if the call should be blocked. If the number matches a number in the blocked fax numbers list, the fax is not printed. (The maximum number of fax numbers you can block varies by model.)
note:
This feature is not supported in all countries/regions. If it is not supported in your country/region, Junk Fax Blocker Set Up does not appear in the Basic Fax Setup menu.

Set the junk fax mode

By default, Block Junk Fax mode is turned On. If you do not subscribe to a caller ID service through your phone provider, or do not want to use this feature, you can turn off this setting.
To set the junk fax mode
  1. Press Setup.
  2. Press the right arrow to select Basic Fax Setup, and then press OK.
  3. Press the right arrow to select Junk Fax Blocker Set Up.
  4. Press the right arrow to select Block Junk Fax, and then press OK.
  5. When prompted, press 1 for Yes or 2 for No.

Add numbers to the junk fax list

There are two ways to add a number to your junk list. You can select numbers from your caller ID history, or you can enter new numbers. The numbers in your junk list will be blocked if Block Junk Fax mode is set to On.
To select a number from the caller ID list
  1. Press Setup.
  2. Press the right arrow to select Basic Fax Setup then press OK.
  3. Press the right arrow to select Add Number to Junk List, and then press the right arrow to select Number and then press OK.
  4. Press the right arrow to scroll through the numbers from which you have received faxes. When the number you want to block appears, press OK to select it.
  5. When the Select Another? prompt displays, do one of the following:
    • If you want to add another number to the list of junk fax numbers, press 1 to select Yes, and then repeat step 4 for each number you want to block.
    • If you are done, press 2 to select No.
To manually enter a number to block
  1. Press Setup.
  2. Press the right arrow to select Basic Fax Setup press OK.
  3. Then press the right arrow to select Junk Fax Blocker Set Up and then press OK.
  4. Press the right arrow to select Add Number to Junk List press OK, and then press the right arrow to select Enter Number.
  5. Use the keypad to enter a fax number to block and then press OK. Make sure you enter the fax number as it appears on the display, and not the fax number that appears on the fax header of the received fax, as these numbers can be different.
  6. When the Enter Another? prompt displays, do one of the following:
    • If you want to add another number to the list of junk fax numbers, press 1 to select Yes, and then repeat step 4 for each number you want to block.
    • If you are done, press 2 to select No.

Remove numbers from the junk fax list

If you no longer want to block a fax number that number can be removed from the junk fax list.
To remove numbers from the junk fax list
  1. Press Setup.
  2. Press the right arrow to select Basic Fax Setup then press OK, and then press the right arrow again to select Junk Fax Blocker Set Up then press OK.
  3. Press the right arrow to select Remove Number from Junk List.
  4. Press the right arrow to scroll through the blocked numbers. When the number you want to remove displays, press OK to select it.
  5. When the Delete Another? prompt displays, do one of the following:
    • If you want to remove another number from the list of junk fax numbers, press 1 to select Yes, and then repeat step 4 for each number you want to block.
    • If you are done, press 2 to select No.
