Printers work differently and this includes the particular features in Fax for a given printer.

 

In general, 

  • Switch ON Auto Answer
  • Set the number of rings lower on the answering machine - and higher on the Fax.  You want your answering machine to answer calls so the printer can detect the fax tone and pick up.
  • Use the Fax cord that shipped with the printer - these are a "two-wire" phone cord.  (Phone cords on a typical landline phone have four wires.)

 

These and more are covered in this document:

HP Printers and Fax Machines - Resolving Fax Problems

 

What Else?

 

The User Guide for YOUR printer provides detailed information on how to connect and use the fax.  Generally, an entire chapter is dedicated to the subject.  "A must read".
