It could be the modem. Disconnect the machine from the phone line and plug a phone directly into the line. If that works properly, the problem is most likely the modem on the lexmark. If this is the case, you should find someone locally to assist you with the repair.

1. You might have to dial 9 first, if you are connected to an office pbx phone system.
2. If there are two phone jacks on the back of the unit, try plugging the line into the other one.

Can't really help you is you dont advise the printer model. Only thing I can ask is if the phone lines are connected or not as well as the power supply cable?

Canon mf5770 not receiving faxes


Most fax machines allow you to set the number of times the phone rings before it automatically answers the phone. So if you phone goes to voice mail after 4 rings and the fax machine is set to start the fax after the 5th ring it will never receive the faxes because the call went to voice mail. Good Luck

Can't send or receive faxes


it's most likely the compression on the phone line or you need to set up your fax machine for proper receive mode.
Contact your phone service provider to see if they support faxes.
(Faxes cannot handle nearly as much compression as standard voice)

Able to send and receive faxes. some numbers


It does not sound as if there is a problem with your machine. The receiving parties may have given you the wrong number to send to.

Call those numbers from a regular phone and listen for fax tones.

Cant send faxes or recieve


Do you still have the problem?

Did you go through the entire setup procedure according to the manual including the fax/tel set up? Fax/tel setup tells the fax machine how you are using it. For example is the phone line used for just receiving faxes or is it used to receive phone calls AND receive incoming faxes OR is there a telephone answering device (TAD) attached to your phone line. If there is one, set it to 2 rigns. If you have it set to 4 rings the fax could disconnect before receiving the incoming fax. If you cannot send, then it has to be a line problem assuming you went through all the set up procedures correctly. Short of this you may have a bad unit and need to return it.

I can only send faxes and not receive them


As far as point 1, you might want to check out this web page at HP.com:

Faxes can be received but not sent

Point 2. I have two "out" phone ports on my ADSL modem. I use one to plug it the 6110 into the modem. I do have an ADSL filter one one of my phone jacks. but I believe the modem contains one as well for phone devices directly connected to it.

Point 3. Yes. Obviously, if you are on a phone call, you won't be able to receive a fax, but if no phone call is in progress, a fax can come in just fine. Having a fax machine is just like having more than one phone in the house.

Hope this helps. Post your results back here. Good luck.

Receiving faxes with a Cisco ATA 186


More investigation implies that faxing over VoIP, as I am doing, requires setting the fax BAUD rate to 9600 bps or slower. So does anyone know if it is possible to set the BAUD rate on the Dell MFP 1600n multifunction printers?

My model Kodak 5500 printer/fax


Just found your post and I'm having the same problem. Everything else seems to be working correctly. I can copy, scan, print and I THINK I can send a fax correctly, I should have called the person and made sure it arrived. However, I cannot receive faxes. I have an answering machine on the line, but it is not plugged into the Kodak Pinter, it is in another room. The answering machine answered the call, the FAX noise came across, but the Kodak Printer never picked it up and printed out the fax. I think I have all the settings correct, but the instructions are not very clear. Do you think I HAVE to have the answering machine plugged into the Kodak Printer? That doesn't make sense, but I might try it.

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.
