Setting the answer mode
Depending on your situation, you can set the HP LaserJet 3330’s answer mode to automatic or
Automatic: In automatic answer mode, the product answers incoming calls after a specified
number of rings or upon recognition of special fax tones. To specify the number of rings, see
Manual: In manual answer mode, the product never answers calls. You must start the
fax-receiving process yourself, either by pressing start fax on the control panel or by picking
up a phone connected to that line and dialing 1-2-3.
The default answer mode is automatic.
Although most users leave the answer mode set to automatic, voice callers who dial the fax phone
number will hear fax tones if the phone is not answered, or if they do not hang up by the specified
number of rings-to-answer. If you do not want voice callers to hear fax tones, use the manual setting,
but remember that fax calls are not received automatically.
