Answering machine problems with Lexmark X4270

This problem started last week, and my family is a little frantic...
Our answering machine, when you call and try to leave a message, won't record a message and you hear that fax machine/dial-up-type of sound. This is even though the person is NOT sending a fax. We thought it was the answering machine, but eliminated that possibility, because there is nothing wrong with it.
Then, we thought it was the X4270 and how it was affecting it. We have tried disconnecting it to restart, tried to configure it, but it seems stubborn as a horse as it insists on 'dialing our fax number' even though we don't HAVE anything to fax! We just want it to stop messing with our answering machine, so that we can receive messages and not have a lot of close friends ask 'where are we?'

I apologize if this doesn't make sense, but I have tried to find solutions for this, and they are not available.

Thats an easy one, if the all in one is attatchd to pc and not stand alone, go into your pc settings, go to printers and faxes under control panel and take the fax off default setting. It will no longer be able to dial the fax and should revert to answereing. also check if your fax mode is set correctly for what you want. It may be on fax mode only so it automatically dials fax. Good luck.

I cannot receive faxes on my lexmark X4270. It will ring but nothing come through


Please go through the following checklists:
  • Make sure the that the fax line is working. To check, insert a telephone device straight to the fax line. You should get a dial tone.
  • Make sure the telephone cord from the phone jack in the wall is plugged into the Line port on the back of your Lexmark printer.
  • Assign the correct fax number on the printer.
  • If you have an answering machine connected to the same line as the fax, set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the printer does. Increase the number of rings by a factor of 3 over the answering machine. For example, if the answering machine is set to pick up on 4 rings, set the printer to pick up on 7 rings.
  • If you have a voicemail feature in the same line as the fax, you may subscribe from your phone service provider for a distinctive ring pattern feature. You can program your printer to have a distinctive ring pattern and phone number for incoming faxes.
If these don't help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

I cannot receive incoming fax, what setting do I have to use


Please go through the following checklist:
  • Make sure to plug the telephone fax line from the phone jack in the wall to the Line port on the back of your printer. For more info, please refer to the Lexmark X4200 User's Guide.
  • Make sure the fax machine is connected to right phone jack in the wall and is assigned with the correct fax number.
  • If you have an answering machine connected to the same fax line, be sure to configure it so that it answers first before the fax machine (e.g. if your answering machine picks up on the 3rd ring, set your fax to pick up on the 6th ring or more)
  • If the line has a voicemail feature, disable it or request for a distinctive ring from your phone company.

Can send faxes but not receiving them and yes there is paper in fax


Make sure the correct fax number is assigned on the printer. If you have an answering machine connected to the same line as your fax, configure it so that the answering machine picks up first then the fax. For more information, please refer to this article: Change Number of Rings on Inkjet AIO to Alleviate Issues with Answering Machines.
If you have a voicemail feature associated with the fax line, please disable the voicemail. Voicemail feature and the fax will not work together in the same line.

How do i set the answering system on a uniden 1580-3 phone, mine is just background noise on the answering machine when someone calls in to leave a message


Here is the manual for your phone. You can download the manual and the instructions for setting up your answering machine are on page 43:

http://www.uniden.com/pdf/DECT1580-3om.pdf

Setting Up the Answering System
You can set up your answering system's features from the handset. Only one handset at a time can access the answering system menus.

Note: If you have multiple bases, select the base with answering system you want to access (see page 15).

Recording a Personal Greeting
Your answering system comes with a pre-recorded outgoing message or greeting that plays when you receive a call: "Hello, no one is available to take your call. Please leave a message after the tone." You can record your own personal outgoing greeting. Your recorded greeting must be between two seconds and thirty seconds long.

Press /mute. The system announces the number of new and old messages, then starts to play the messages unless it has no messages.

Press 5 to stop the announcements or message playback. You will hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the command waiting mode.

Press 8 to start the recording. The system announces, "Record greeting." Begin recording after the announcement.

When you finish recording, press 8 again or press 5. You will hear a confirmation tone, and your recorded greeting plays back for you.

Selecting a Greeting

Once you have recorded a personal greeting, the phone automatically switches to your personal greeting. You can
also switch back and forth between the pre-recorded greeting and your own greeting at any time.

Press /mute. The system announces the number of new and old messages, then starts to play the messages unless it has no messages.

Press 5 to stop the announcements or message playback. You will hear intermittent beeps indicating that the system is in the command waiting mode.

Press 6. The system plays the current greeting.

I have a Voca phone RT-250- It does not play back messages. The answering machine plays the recorded message - it records that three messages are there but then doesn't play back the recorded messages.


Need more info here, does the machine record a memo? Set the machine to answer mode and press the little memo button on the very rhs of the machine to start and stop recording.) This should leave a message like through the phone line. Will that play back? Lift the tape lid and see if the tape moves??? With a little more info I can help, I've been repairing those for many many years.

I just bought a x4270 lexmark.i do not see in the maual set up for smart ring,another term is short ring and ido have a answering machine set up aswell.im wondering if i can even use this unit.any answers?


Yes, you can.

You have to connect the answering machine to the X4270 like this

http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/2007/4200/ug/en/basics.html#wp633882

and set it to answer before the X4270 does. Say, 4 rings for the answering machine and 5 for the X4270.

The X4270 will monitor the few first seconds of the call anyway, and if it detects the whistle of an incoming fax, it will disconnect the answering machine and receive the fax.

With most answering machines, disconnecting while the greeting message is still playing will not be considered a call.
