Forward faxes to another number

You can set up the printer to forward your faxes to another fax number. A received color fax is

forwarded in black and white.

HP recommends that you verify the number you are forwarding to is a working fax line. Send a test

fax to make sure the fax machine is able to receive your forwarded faxes.

To forward faxes from the printer control panel


From the Home screen on the printer display, press the Up and Down buttons to select Fax, and

then press OK.


Select Settings, and then select Advanced Settings.


Select Fax Forwarding, and then select Fax Forward.


Select On with Print to print and forward the fax, or select On to forward the fax.


If the printer is not able to forward the fax to the designated fax machine (for example, if

it is not turned on), the printer prints the fax. If you set up the printer to print error reports for

received faxes, it also prints an error report.

At the prompt, enter the number of the fax machine intended to receive the forwarded faxes, and

then select Done. Enter the required information for each of the following prompts: start date,

start time, end date, and end time.


Fax forwarding is activated. Select OK to confirm.

If the printer loses power when fax forwarding is set up, it saves the fax forwarding setting and

phone number. When the power is restored to the printer, the fax forwarding setting is still On.


You can cancel fax forwarding by selecting Off from the Fax Forwarding menu.
