Welcome to HP Forums, this is a great place to get support, find answers and tips.
Thank you for posting your query, I'll be more than glad to help you.
I understand that your phone calls are being answered by the fax machine.
This issue could occur if the rings to answer on the fax machine is less than the rings to answer on the phone.
Let's go through a few steps to resolve this issue.
You need to increase the rings to answer on the fax machine so that it is higher than the rings to answer on the phone.
And here's the step by step guide for you in the link: Calls Are Interrupted By Fax Tones
Let me know how this works.
You have a good day ahead.

You can also set the Auto Answer to OFF, if you dont need your printer to auto answer fax calls.
