This si str8 from the manual! The Ring Delay sets the number of times the MFC rings before it answers in Fax Only or Fax/Tel mode. If you have extension phones on the same line as the MFC or subscribe to the telephone company?s Distinctive Ring service, keep the Ring Delay setting of 4. 1 If it is not illuminated in green, press (Fax). 2 Press Menu/Set, 2, 1, 1. 3 Press ▲ or ▼ to select how many times the line rings before the MFC answers (00, 01, 02, 03 or 04). Press Menu/Set. (If you select 00, the line won?t ring at all.) 4 Press Stop/Exit.

Fax won't answer


If you have an answering machine connected to the same line as your fax:

To make sure the printer picks up incoming faxes, set Auto Answer to On, and then set the printer to pick up after a greater number of rings than the answering machine. For example, if the answering machine picks up calls after four rings, then set the printer to pick up after six rings. This way, the answering machine picks up calls first and your voice calls are received. If the call is a fax, then the printer detects the fax signal on the line and takes over the call.

If you have a voicemail feature associated to the same line as your fax:

Voice mail and fax can share the same telephone line if you subscribe to a distinctive ring service offered by your telephone company. This feature allows you to have multiple telephone numbers on one telephone line. Each telephone number has a designated ring pattern (single ring, double ring, triple ring, or double and triple ring). The different ring patterns let you know which telephone number was dialed, and which device you should use to answer the call.


If you do not have distinctive ring service, then set the printer to receive faxes manually (Auto Answer Off). This setting lets you receive both voice calls and fax calls, but works best if you use voice mail more often. You need to turn off voice mail whenever you are expecting a fax.

I hope this helps.

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.

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.

Our DECT2015 phone only rings 4 times and then stops.How cane I adjust the ringing time of our phone? Thanks Peter


Do you have voicemail or an answering machine? This is usually a sign that another device (fax, answering machine or voicemail service) is set to answer the call after 4 rings. You will need to lengthen to number of rings before the service/device in question picks up. (The method to reset this will depend on the service/device that is picking up.) Another possibility is a call forwarding service that is enabled at 4 rings.

I hope this helps. Please write back with details on the device that could be picking up for details on setting the number of rings. If you have voicemail or call forwarding, check with your telephone service provider to lengthen the number of rings before the service kicks in. (There are too many for me to know all of the providers instructions.)

Set the fax machine to Manual Receive. Set your answering machine to 4 or 5 rings. When the phone rings, pick it up, if you hear the chirping of a sending fax machine, press the Start Key on the fax and then hang up. The two faxes will communicate and you will receive your fax.

You need to go in and adjust the "Off Hook" setting so that it does not pick up the ring cycle before the answer machine does.

Next you have to find the instructions that will allow your phone answer machine to tell your fax machine that there is data for it.

More often than not this is accomplished by setting a software switch for example press number 4 to send me a fax. The answer machine in turns wakes up the fax machine and allow the connection to proceed.

It all in those books that came with your products. I know you keep them neatly filed away for instant retrieval, just the the rest of us do. :)
