Incoming Faxes

HP Recommended
HP 5610 All in One
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am unable to receive incoming faxes. I am able to send, but not receive. The line just rings, but does not pick up.

I cannot fix this for you - I can provide some places to check / adjust the setup.


It might just be that Auto-Answer was accidentally switched off.

Reference:  User Guide  Page 68


Considerations and Places to Look (might not be all inclusive):




           Section:  Text error messages > No Answer


          Section:  Cannot receive faxes


Not likely since you can send a fax

  • The two-wire phone cord might need to be replaced.
  • The phone line might have passed the threshold for "noisy" line.



Not necessarily recommended for a fax issue - provided as FYI

If you decide to reinstall the printer software:


The full driver software for this printer is older (last released 2015) - it might still be compatible with the latest versions of Windows 10.


Uninstall the existing printer software from Programs and Features

Restart the computer and log in

Download and save the Full Feature Software

  • Navigate to the folder in which you saved the software installation package (likely Downloads)
  • Right-Click on the downloaded package and "Run as Administrator" to start the installation
  • Reminder:  If using Easy Start, select the Full Driver
  • After the software is installed, Restart the computer and log in
