What type of phone line are you using?

Dedicated line: A unique fax/phone number assigned to receive or
send faxes. The phone cord should be connected to the top port
inside the left side panel of the product (the one that is not labeled
with a telephone icon).

Shared phone line: A system where both phone calls and faxes
are received or sent using the same phone number and phone line.
A single standard phone line can only perform one function at a
time. You cannot send a fax while talking on the phone or while
connecting to the Internet using the same phone line.

PBX system: A business environment phone system. Standard
home phones and the HP LaserJet 3330 use an analog phone
signal. PBX systems are digital and are incompatible with standard
phones and with devices such as the HP LaserJet 3330. You need
to have access to a standard analog phone line in order to send and
receive faxes.

Roll-over lines: A phone system feature where, when one
incoming line is busy, the next call “rolls over” to the next available
line. Try attaching the product to the first incoming phone line. The
product will answer the phone after it rings the number of times set
in the product’s rings-to-answer setting. (See


rings-to-answer” on page 12


Distinctive ring service: The phone company can assign two
phone numbers to one physical line and assign each number a
distinctive ring pattern. Make sure the product is set to respond to
the correct distinctive ring pattern assigned to the fax phone number
by your phone service provider. (See

“Enabling answer ring

patterns” on page 14
