    Dear Cliff8928,
    is there any possibility to make the X4500 receiving faxes and send them via eMail to my PC? I meen, the device is able to scan to email, why doesn't it be able send incoming faxes via email to a preconfigured mailbox?

    Thank you very much.

    Kind regards

I turn on my X4500 scanner, It begins the inialization, gets to 100% and just sits there. It does not progress any further.

Usually that's a network problem, try doing a factory default of the network base hold the right and the check button "go" button til you see the menu for maintenance then look for network restore part, do a factory default of the network and then restart the scanner again after the printer starts up again

should be good to go

Scanner needs camera device fixed -

Are you using this as stand alone or through the computer? Whichever try the other way - If standalone try it through the computer. If in the computer try stand alone. If in the computer re install software. If all the variations do not cure it then its good bye to that one and onto the next - there is nothing that will fix.

Scanner failure

I assume from your remark you are using this as a stand alone device or are you connected to Computer? If you are using as stand alone try through the computer. If you are using it through the computer then simply re install the software. If you are using it as stand alone only. Contact the makers website for more detailed support.
