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.

I have a lexmark x5650 printer and I can send a fax but I cannot recieve a fax. Can you please help me?


Ensure that the telephone/fax line is plugged into the Line port on the back of Lexmark printer and not in the Phone port.

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.

I have an officejet 6500 all in one printer and I am setting up the fax section. It sends and recieve OK but my answering machine is picking up before the fax machine. How can I change that around so the...


You need to check the setup ..

The telephone line which is coming from out should be connected to the line 1 of the printer and Telephone answering machine should be connected to Line 2 .

2. You also need to check that after how many rings the Telephone answering machine answers the call you have to keep the "Rings to answer" 2 less than that of Telephone answering machine.

Lets assume that your Telephone Answering Machine answers the call after 4 rings then keep the rings to answer in All in One to 2

How to set Rings to Answer

1. Press the Setup button on the Front panel of the printer

2. Scroll Down and go to Basic Fax Setup - Select it

3. Scroll down and got to - Rings to Answer - Select it

4. Set the Rings here and then try Fax

it will fix the problem :)

HOW DO I GET MY FAXES OUT OF THE MEMORY?


Receiving a fax
Receiving a fax automatically
1 Make sure the printer is on and is connected to a working phone line.
2 Make sure that Auto Answer is on.
To check if Auto Answer is on:
a From the printer control panel, press (tool icon).
b Press the arrow buttons until Fax Setup appears, and then press ok.
c Press the arrow buttons until Ringing and Answering appears, and then press ok.
d Press again.
Check to see if Auto Answer is set to On.
e If Auto Answer is not set to on, press the arrow buttons until On appears, and then press to save the setting.
3 Set the number of times the telephone rings before the printer automatically receives faxes:
a Press the arrow buttons until Pick-up On appears, and then press ok.
b Press the arrow buttons until the setting that you want appears, and then press to save the setting.
When the number of rings you set is detected, the printer automatically receives the incoming fax.
Receiving a fax manually
1 Make sure the printer is on and is connected to a working telephone line.
2 Make sure that Auto Answer is off.
3 To receive the fax, press (green botton) or press * 9 * on the telephone after you answer it and hear fax tones.
4 Hang up the telephone.
The printer receives the fax.
Receiving a fax with an answering machine
1 Make sure that Auto Answer is on.
2 Make sure you have set the number of times the telephone rings before receiving a fax automatically.
When a telephone ring is detected, the answering machine picks up the call.
• If the printer detects a fax, it receives the fax and disconnects the answering machine.
• If the printer does not detect a fax, the answering machine receives the call.

3 Set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the printer does.
For example, if you set the answering machine to answer calls after three rings, set the printer to answer calls
after five rings.
Forwarding faxes
Use the fax-forwarding feature if you are going to be away, but still want to receive your faxes. There are three
fax-forwarding values or settings:
• Off—(Default)
• Forward—The printer sends the fax to the designated fax number.
• Print & Forward—The printer prints the fax and then sends it to the designated fax number.
1 Make sure the printer is on and is connected to a working telephone line.
2 Press the arrow buttons until Fax Setup appears, and then press ok.
3 Press the arrow buttons until Ringing and Answering appears, and then press ok.
4 Press the arrow buttons until Fax Forward appears, and then press ok.
5 Press the arrow buttons until Forward or Print & Forward appears, and then press ok.
6 Enter the number to which you want to forward the fax, and then press ok.

Will send a fax but want recieve one


>> but want recieve [sic] one

Do you WANT to receive a FAX ?

If so, you need to connect a telephone-wire from one of your telephone-outlets to the modem-port on the All-In-One unit.

>> but want recieve [sic] one

Are you saying that it WON'T receive a FAX?
Precisely what happens when somebody tries to send a FAX?
Does the All-In-One "answer" the telephone-call?
How many seconds does the telephone-call last, before the All-In-One "hangs-up" the call?
