How to connect a USB modem fax when the phone line is connected to a HP OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus 4 - all - in-one?

So I have a HP Office Jet Pro 8600 Plus (4-all-in-one) that I normally use to fax documents for commercial purposes. I became more and more tired for the first printing of documents directly from my computer to be faxed to another office. It is a waste of paper, ink and time. For this reason, I would like to set up a fax modem so I can use Windows Fax & Scan on my Gateway with Windows 7 computer so that I can directly fax documents from my computer to the recipient fax. The only question is, I have a phone line that I use for my fax and which is directly connected to the fax machine, but I understand a Faxmodem USB also plug into a phone line as well. How can I configure the USB fax modem without compromising the current telephone line attached to my fax machine? Do I need a splitter? I can still use my fax machine to receive faxes and fax all paper document not found in my computer (for ex. documents I received by mail).

It is always profitable read the documentation provided with the device.  If you had, you would know that the software provided with it will allow you to fax documents directly from your computer without printing it and scanning first.  Download the software (and the user's guide - page 63- here.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus: vertical line when scanning

    I get a vertical line when I scan using the document feeder.  I do not understand when scanning the glass plate. I need assistance to access the mirror slider.  I raised the lid for the loading of documents, but I couldn't find out how to get under the rollers to clean the mirror. Thank you

    The document here can help solve the black lines to scan using the ADF on your HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus.  From my experience this is almost always caused by a specification on the thin glass on the side left which is used for scanning using the ADF.  Cleaning of this area as described in the above document should solve the problem.  If the initial cleanup does not resolve the problem, it can help to shine a bright flashlight almost parallel to the glass.  For a line on the left side of the printed page, the place will be toward the front of the printer, if the line is on the right side of the document, it must correspond to a specification to the rear of the printer.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus does not connect through the Device Manager but will connect bij Win7.

    I have a HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus that works very well with some computers connected via ethernet.

    On a new computer with Windows 7 Ultimate edition, HP Device Manager can't find the printer, even when I give IP address.

    When I try to add a new printer network in Windows (add printer) windows detects the printer less than a second.

    I need the hp Device Manager configuration so I can use all the options off the officejet.

    Problem solved.

    The printer has a fixed IP address and the customer got his IP by DHCP. By dhcp, dns suffix has been changed so the printer dns suffix and the client does not mach.

    Now the printer receives its IP address by the dhcp server. The dhcp server always gives the same address to the printer.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus fried by storm - how can I removed the ink cartridges

    A storm on the last week my OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus feeding dish. The printer is irretrievably economic so I ordered a new printer.

    Without power, the transport of ink cartridge is stuck in extreme right position where it is impossible to remove the four ink cartridges relatively new. Ink is not cheap... would like to be able to recover the disabled printer ink cartridges but cannot understand how the cart release.

    Any sugguestions would be appreciated.

    In the end from the deceased by removving Assembly ADF/scanner printer ink cartridges. This provided access from the top to the distribution of ink stuck.  T10 Torx driver required to remove all.

    The new printer will not accept the cartridges retrieved when installing printer... had to use the "setup" cartridges in the box with the new printer.

    After you configure the new printer, however, I've been able to 'Set up' cartridges for almost new XL cartridges that I had recovered from my old printer.

  • HI, how can I scan a picture and only the witout the rest. On a HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus?

    HI, how can I scan a picture and only the witout the rest. On a HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus?

    When I scan I got my photo and all white for the rest of the screen

    It has no function of machine harvest in the 8600 software. To get the exact size, you will need to manually set the size for the scans that you do. You can find the setting by clicking on the blue link to advanced settings in the first scan window. Will take you to a place that will allow you to change the size of the scanning area. Hope that helps.

  • Tecra A6: no dial tone with Replicator port when the phone line is plugin


    I have a Tecra A6 and the Advanced Port Replicator 3 Plus. Everything works except that I can't get a dial tone (for fax) when I plug the phone line into the duplicator. However, if I plug the same line to the Jack on the Tecra, I get a dial tone.

    I suspect that the com port is not configured correctly. Toshiba software modem is set to 3 Com (which should be of the Tecra). Should this com port I choose for the Port Replicator?


    Thanks for the info. I also think that the laptop was not properly connected to the port replicator. It is important that the laptop is connected correctly to the port replicator.
    Further, you should check if you have a new version of the Extention3 of Mobile of TOSHIBA (TME3) installed on the laptop.

  • OfficeJet Pro 8600 Plus does not fax

    He just did not react, even if the Test Fax is OK (all PASS). I did a lot of testing. Sometimes (well only once so far), it does not recognize a call (I call from a cell phone, but I know clients that it does not meet either ordinary fax machines) and connect. Sometimes, he gets the call, but ask me to accept it, although the auto answer is on. And most of the time, almost always, it does not react at all.

    It is a series of N911g Officejet Pro 8600. Brand new. It is connected to my PC (win7U) via USB, no configuration wireless fantasies at all. I tried to install manually and with the wizard, both directly on the printer to the computer. Everything fine each time, including a successful fax test all. But then no reaction. The line is a Fax line, with its own number, only for faxes. No problem to send faxes. I have tested the line on another printer (Epson PX830), with the same cable, just unplug the phone line on the Officejet and plug it into the Epson: no problem, all calls answered.

    Any ideas? Thank you!

    It works with the new NT. I was even able to programm with the fax: for lines analog, you will need to enter your analog number manually in the NT by using an analog phone (or perhaps a more intelligent device for the pros, I guess). I just send faxes empty a little with the codes as numbers. I got an error message from the phone network, but the new testament had already swallowed the codes from here here. I have not tried the cable: too happy it works finally.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8500 has e-all-in-one printer A910a given to nine (Fax phone part short circuit)

    My phone service was interrupted (no dial tone) and I called my phone provider about the issue.  The dealer has diagnosed the problem and was told that the problem was with my printer. He tested the wiring and found that portion of phone of the printer has been bypass, pick up the phone line and do not hang up, which eliminated my phone service.  I had to unplug the printer telephone wire and wall split decision.  I now have the phone service and I can use the other features of my printer, but I can not use the fax feature.  Please advise...

    Have you tried to contact Verizon to check how they suggest you connect all the devices? One of your previous posts said you would contact them. I wonder what they suggest.

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus: sending of faxes directly Word document

    The machine works well for scan and fax a paper document manually.

    But I can't get it to send a Word directly from Word document.  "Fax - HP Officejet Pro 8600" is among my printers, but when I select the 'printer '...

    (1) on the 'Send Fax' screen, I wonder for all sorts of information (for example, contact). If I type in a name, etc., the information disappears - and appears later in my e-mail address book.  By clicking on the "Contacts Fax" area shows nothing.

    (2) even if I could find a touch, the screen insists that I have add a cover page (do not want one).

    (3) there is an icon called 'My Document Fax' which I assume would choose a document (for example. Word) to send - but nothing happens.

    'Add a Scan' will scan a document from the tray of the printer, but not what I need.



    Have you tried to add a number manually?

    Enter the number in the top bar, and then press the Add button:

    Once you press the button Add the Send Fax option becomes available:

    The icon labled is the Word document who sent the fax indeed software

  • HP Officejet Pro 8600 Plus: Scanner/Fax, printing of two black lines on documents

    When you use the document for scan, copy, fax feeder, etc. the document always ends with two vertical black lines in the middle of the page.  I read a few other posts similar to this and tried all the advice, and nothing seems to have worked.  So far I've tried: cleaning the machine reset, turn it off for a period of time and again, disconnect it from the power supply for five minutes and by him plugging plug (which were the advice given in other posts).  Thanks in advance!
