Connect the fax accessory to a phone line
When connecting the fax accessory to a phone line, ensure that the phone line that is being used for
the fax accessory is a dedicated line that is not used by any other devices. In addition, this line should
be an analog line because th e fax will not function correctly if it is connected to some digital PBX systems.
If you are not sure whether you have an analog or digital phone line, contact your telecom provider.
NOTEHP recommends using the phone cord that comes with the fax accessory to ensure that
the accessory functions correctly.
1. Locate the phone cord that is included in the fax accessory kit. Connect one end of the phone cord
to the fax-accessory phone jack on the form atter. Push the connector until it clicks.
CAUTIONBe sure to connect the phone line to the fax-accessory phone jack , which is
near the bottom of the formatter. Do not co nnect the phone line to the HP Jetdirect LAN
port, which is closer to the top of the formatter.
2. Connect the other end of the phone cord to the phone jack on the wall. Push the connector until it
clicks or until it is securely seated. Because different types of connectors are used in different
countries/regions, the connector might not make an audible click.
Configure and use the fax features
Before you can use the fax features, you must config ure them in the control-panel menus. For example,
you need to specify the following information:
● Date and time
● Fax header
For complete information about configuring and using the fax accessory, and for information about
troubleshooting fax-accessory problems, see the HP LaserJet Analog Fax Accessory 300 User Guide ,
which is provided with the fax accessory.

With digital faxing, the device does not need to be connected directly to a phone line. Instead, the device
can send a fax in one of three ways:
●LAN fax sends faxes through a third-party fax provider.
●Microsoft Windows 2000 fax is a fax modem and digital sender module that the computer uses
to operate as a turnkey gateway fax.
●Internet fax uses an Internet fax provider to process faxes. The fax is delivered to a traditional fax
machine or sent to the user’s e-mail.
For complete information about using digital faxing, see the documentation that is provided with the
HP Digital Sending Software.
