HP Officejet 6300 Series All-in-One - Receive a Fax

Introduction
The HP All-in-One receives faxes automatically or manually. If the Auto Answer option is turned off, faxes must be received manually. If the Auto Answer option is turned on, the unit automatically answers incoming calls and receives faxes after the number of rings specified by the Rings to Answer setting. The Auto Answer option is the default option, and the default Rings to Answer setting is five rings.
To receive faxes manually, the unit must be connected to a telephone in one of two ways:
  • Directly connected to the unit on the 2-EXT port
  • On the same telephone line, but not directly connected to the unit
This document applies to the following products:
  • HP Officejet 6301, 6304, 6305, 6307, and 6308
  • HP Officejet 6310, 6310v, 6310xi, 6313, 6315, and 6318
