    After making sure that only the DSL line is connected and the regular phone line is disconnected,from your tower computer,have you tried removing and reinstalling the Lexmart?

Hi Brenda,

Your All In One wants a phone line hooked directly to it. It won't fax without a "POTS" line directly hooked to it. POTS stands for "Plain Old Telephone Service" which is the line with good old dial tone on it.

Cannot send a fax


For a fax to work you do not need a broadband. What you need is a phone like. It seems that you are trying to use broadband for fax because it is the same phone line that they both are on. Sorry, will not work that way. If you trace back you will find that there is a little box that has the phone line coming into from outside. The box splits it into phone and dsl. It is this phone line that should go into the fax and not the dsl line.
So please remove the dsl line from the fax and connect the phone line and you will see that the fax works.

I have a Lexmark All-In-One printer. I had dial up, and just recently I got Broadband. I cannnot use the fax now. It says unable to communicate with port. How do I fix this problem so I can fax again....


It may be not completely set with the broadband connection, or might not be detected the hardware changes.

Please check for the device manager and let me know after that.

Recently refilled cartridge #70 on a Lexmark x125 all-in-one printer/fax machine. tried test page and getting smears and streaks at bottom of page. test colored strips solid but black strips lines. do...


It sounds like bad cartridge. Inkjet refilling only works sometimes, If there was any old ink in the cartridge there could be a bad mix or even dried ink getting into the head

X4270 lexmark printer hook up


I have a lexmark X4270, I'm having a problem with the fax machine, the display keeps displaying "clear paper Jam", however there is no paper jam. I'm also not being able to recieve or send any faxes. I'm low on ink, would this prevent sending faxes? Any suggestions?
