How to receive Fax on HP Officejet 3830 Printer

Faxes can be received manually or automatically. If you disable the Auto Answer feature, you will have to manually receive faxes. After the number of rings defined by the Rings to Answer setting, the printer automatically answers incoming calls and receives faxes if the Auto Answer option is enabled (the default value). (The default value for Rings to Answer is five rings.)

If you get a Legal-size or bigger fax and your printer isn't set to use Legal-size paper, the fax is reduced to fit on the currently loaded paper. The printer prints the fax on two pages if the Auto Reduction option is turned off.

Receive a fax manually

While you are still connected to the phone, the person you are communicating with can send you a fax. You can communicate on the phone or listen for fax tones by picking up the handset.

Manual faxes can be received from a phone that is directly linked to the printer (on the 2-EXT port).

How to receive a fax manually

  1. Make sure the printer is powered on and that the input tray is filled with paper.
  2. Remove any originals from the document feeder tray.
  3. Set the Rings to Answer option to a high number so you can answer the phone before the printer does. Alternatively, disable the Auto Answer feature to prevent the printer from automatically answering incoming calls.
  4. If you're still on the phone with the sender, request that the fax be sent directly.
  5. Press the Fax menu, then press the Send and Receive menu, and then press the Receive Now menu from the Home screen when you hear fax tones from a printer.
  6. You may either hang up the phone or stay on the line after the printer starts receiving the fax. During fax transmission, the phone line is quiet.
