already have a lexmark x4270. can't recieve a fax?


Chances are you'll find your problem under 'fax settings' or a similarly titled option on the display. If you have it hooked up a computer as well you're in luck, most come with software that has an option labeled 'fax setup wizard' or something similar. Just follow the steps in that or call customer support at the following link to be walked through every step.
