Cannot get the fax to work... need to know correct hookup please


ok look on back and take your main phone line and install where it says line in. Take the next spot and put your land line phone cord and install it in line out. If you have dsl for internet get a "t or y" and put on line out. always make sure the fax has the first line in.

I'm confused on how to hook up the phone that came with the all in one. also does the telephone company have to do something for me


No you hook up the Hp to the phone line using a phone cord and your all in one can send and recieve faxes anytime and auto answer. If you have a 2 wire cable box for internet highspeed you will have to put a filter on it and you can get that from the phone company for free. So if you have a phone splitter you can have the fax on the same line as your phone and your computer.

Hi. I have a Xerox M20i. The fax machine will ring, but then immediately hangs up. I have reset the memory and the DIMM chips as suggested by Xerox. The phone line works as the machine can fax out. Help...


Is your phone line in the " line" jack and not the ext jack?
If the line is digital it will do that.
If the phone line voltage is low, the line current low that will also cause the problem.
In your fax settings. Is ECM turned ON.
Is Junk Fax OFF.
Secure Fax OFF.
Delay Fax OFF.
If your phone line is weak, it will cause that problem.

How do I manually receive an incoming fax? I do not keep it on Automatic Receive because it is on my voice line, not a dedicated fax line.


When the phone rings, pick up the external handset. When you hear the fax tone come over the line press the Start button and hand up the handset.

Cannot send faxes when using cable company's digital voice modem


Fax machines must have a standard analog phone line. They won't work on a digital line and can actually be damaged if hooked up to one.

I can send faxes, but cannot receive faxes.


Thank you for specifing your connection>

When you have a shared fax line it is import to have a Distinctive Ring Pattern which will differenciate the type of ring patter to recieve voice calls and Fax message.
All You need to do is get a distinctive ring pattern from your telephone service provider (AT&T) and setup your fax machine as per the ring pattern provided by your service provider.

All you need to do is set your rings to answer in youe phone to Rings 4 in your Phone.

Then in the All-In-One Go to menu / Setup> Press the right arrow key and locate basic fax setup> Press Ok and set the Ring Pattern to Number 5 or 6> Press Ok and cancell to come to the main menu
Then in the All-In-One Go to menu / Setup> Press the right arrow key and locate Advance Fax Setup> Locate Distinctive ring pattern and set it to the ring pattern which your Telephone service provider has alloted i.e Single Ring, Double Ring or or Triple Ring (Whichever is applicable)> Nd press Ok and cancell to come to the main menu.

Then you will be able to receive fax message voice cals and voicemail without any interuption.

Good Luck

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.

Receiving a fax


Faxes fail intermittently or with only one fax number
  • If static is present on the phone line, fax communication may fail. Have the phone line checked and serviced by the telephone company (or have the other party check their line). Phone line quality is the most common reason for intermittent fax failures. Some older locations and buildings have inadequate phone system wiring.
  • If you are trying to send a color fax and it fails, try sending the same machine a black and white fax. Normally the fax will detect that the other fax is not color capable and will offer you the option to send the fax as black and white but this might not always be the case. Do not send color faxes unless you know the other fax machine is capable of receiving color faxes.
  • Check the phone cable from the wall jack to the fax. It should not be coiled or longer than necessary. Coiling the cable can cause cross talk or echo on the line. Signal strength and quality can be lost with long cables.
  • Make sure the phone cable routing (and any cables not plugged into the same jack but sharing the same line) is not near any electrical appliances (electric motors, fans, kitchen appliances, or televisions). Many of these devices do not have sufficient electrical shielding and can induce electro-magnetic force (EMF) onto the phone line. Computers are usually shielded sufficiently and do not cause this problem.
  • Do not use a call-waiting service on the same line connected to the fax machine. The click sound caused by an incoming call can cause the fax to fail.
  • You can block certain faxes on some models. Verify that the telephone number of the sending fax is not blocked in the faxing software. This is usually located in the Fax History.
