How to de-install the FAX on my Lexmark all-in-one.
As I do not receive or want to receive any FAXES, I have not yet found a way of de-installing the FAX facility on this Lexmark. When I get an incoming phone call there is terrible "interference noises" on the phone whilst the machine is deciding that there is no fax coming.
HOW CAN I DE-INSTALL the FAX Facility - a previous solution did not work.

Usually, faxes are temporarily sent to the printer's memory when one of the cartridges' ink level is not substantial for printing at the instance of receiving the fax. When this happens, try to replace the cartridge(s), *without navigating away from the message "fax sent to memory", by opening the printer cover and replacing the low-ink or empty cartridge(s). After the new cartridge is installed, close the printer cover and press the OK button. Your printer should then print the fax stored in the memory. *Make sure not to navigate away from the "fax sent to memory" message, otherwise, data will be lost.
Try dialing *82 and then the full fax # you are calling. AT&T sometimes has issues with caller ID functions, and I found that this caused me to be able to receive a fax, but not send one. Post back and advise whether this resolves your problem. Best, JudyP
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.
in your imaging studio open receive fax and check your settings. make sure it is set to receive. set to auto receive or you have to answer it manually. also remember that to receive a fax the software must be open.
this next is to make sure no software problem in communication.
check ( i'll assume xp) printers and faxes in control panel. right click fax. open properties and go to devices tab click properties. in the receive tab make sure receive fax is checked and your other setting are the same as in imaging studio.
hope this helps.
