Establishing the connections to set up fax on your HP printer:

  • Before starting, make sure that there are no additional devices on the phone line.
  • Locate the LINE port, and plug the HP phone cord into your printer’s port (backside of the printer).
  • Plug the other end of the HP phone cord into the wall jack (if you don’t have the phone cord with you, try buying the same).
  • Keep in mind that the 2-EXT port doesn’t work with the serial phone system.

Note: If your HP printer needs to share the phone line with another device, such as an answering machine, telephone, computer modem, etc., locate the 2-EXT port on your printer.

  • Remove the protective material (plastic cap) from the slot and plug the existing phone cord into the 2-EXT port.
  • Ensure that the phone line is working properly.
  • Make sure that the power connection is stable and the printer is connected to the computer.
