It may be that your CEO's fax machine is not setup to receive correctly. Have someone check the fax receive settings. Have them set it ot fax only and automatic receive.

I have a lexmark X6170. Running Windows XP. Recently installed Micorsoft Office 2007. When I double click on the desk top icon or choose to open the program through all programs, the all in one...


To scan, you probably have to use Microsoft Fax and Scan program. It works just fine with the X6170 ... it just took me all afternoon to figure that out.

If this helps you, please come back and vote Yes so that I know I helped someone. Thanks!!

Can't receive faxes


Hello. Make sure you're plugging the printer to the correct phone jack in the wall. If you're using a splitter, bypass it. Check the settings in the printer. Make sure you assigned the correct Fax number in it and place your Fax name as well. If you're sharing your home phone line with the fax and you have an answering machine, set it to answer first and the Lexmark fax later with a minimum of 2-ring gap. If you have a voicemail, turn it off since it will a conflict with the fax or avail a distinctive ring feature from your phone company so it can work with the fax. Hope this helps.

Lexmark X6170 Has a shared phone/fax line with different numbers


Open the Lexmark "Fax Printer Setup Utility". Click on the "Connection/Dialing" tab. In the "Interact with Phone Line" section, "Answer Incoming Calls:" should be set to "If fax tones are detected".

If this is turning out to be too unreliable for you, you will need to either manually receive incoming faxes (by changing the setting to "Manual"), or you will need to at least spring for a separate phone number with a distinctive ring for incoming faxes.

Receiving a fax on my Lexmark X6170


for these companies, try disconnecting the phone tremporarily to see if thsi is interferring just with these particular faxes. Sometimes if a company's fax is set to phone/fax, it may be trying to call you first beacuse ths would be the default settings. If it detects no phone it may by default accept your fax no problems. Hope this helps.
