Question about Lexmark X1270 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Receiving Fax using a phone line with voicemail on a Lexmark 5470

I have a phone line with voicemail (not a separate answering machine). I have the fax set up on the same line.
I have set the number of rings for the fax to be at 3 and the voice mail at 5. However, if someone calls for voice, the fax machine picks up at three rings with a squelch. I have also tried it in reverse with no luck.
How can I receive calls and faxes without disconnecting one or the other?

Lexmark platinum pro905 fax


If you're having problems sending faxes, make sure that the printer is connected to an active phone line. The best setup would be to connect the printer straight to a wall jack and the other end of the phone cable should be connected to the line port at the back of the printer.

If you're having receiving faxes, check the fax settings > Ringing and Answering. Check if the Auto Answer is enabled and check how many rings the fax will pick up any faxes sent to your number. If you have an answering machine connected to the same line, set the printer to pick up 3 rings higher than your fax machine. If you have a voicemail service, you'll need to get a distinctive ring feature from your phone provider.

MY X5650 WILL SEND FAXES BUT NOT RECIEVE THEM


Are you sharing your home phone line with your fax? If so, do you have a voicemail or an answering machine connected in the same line?

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.

My Lexmark Interpret S405 fax?copy machine picks up incoming call from cell phone as fax. it goes onto fax automatically after 2 rings..


It seems that you're sharing your home phone line with your Lexmark fax machine. You can adjust the "pick-up" ring from the printer operator panel by pressing the Setup button > Fax Setup > Ringing and Answering > Pick Up On > select your preferred number of rings before the fax answers.
Please note:
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.

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.

We can't receive a fax!!! how are we supose to connect with a phne line and the computer???


You don't need to have a computer plugged in to the Lexmark printer to receive faxes. Here's an article on How to Configure the Lexmark X7170 to Receive Faxes. Just click on this link: http://bit.ly/d643uT. If you are sharing your home phone line with the fax and you have an answering machine on the same line, make sure to configure the answering machine to pick up first then the fax machine. Voicemail feature can also block incoming faxes. Once voicemail picks up the fax, signal won't be passed on to the printer. But if you want, you can also contact Lexmark technical support to further investigate the problem.
