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.

I cannot receive faxes on my lexmark X4270. It will ring but nothing come through


Please go through the following checklists:
  • Make sure the that the fax line is working. To check, insert a telephone device straight to the fax line. You should get a dial tone.
  • Make sure the telephone cord from the phone jack in the wall is plugged into the Line port on the back of your Lexmark printer.
  • Assign the correct fax number on the printer.
  • 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.
If these don't help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

I am getting rid of my dedicated fax line and am adding it to my land line. I am told when I have a fax coming in I will hear a double ring which mean my fax line is ringing. How do I set my fax to...


There are two ways to configure a fax machine to answer the phone line. The first way is by pushing the "auto answer" key on the keyboard of the fax itself. When this key is used, the fax machine answers all calls that come in after a certain number of rings. The other way is to manually press the fax button when an incoming call is happening. You can set the number of rings for your machine to pick up by using the keys on the fax machine under the menu feature and then scroll using the up and down arrow keys until you see fax set up and then number of rings.

I have heard about the option that your speaking of, where they give you a separate phone number for your customers to fax when you own a business line but I don't know how the fax machine itself would be able to distinguish between the normal ring of a regular call and the double ring of the merged fax line call. I was told that when I set that up for my friends business recently, that the machine would auto recognize the double ring without any programming and to use the auto answer feature for all calls. He has not had any faxes yet (its a new business) so I can't say for sure if it works or not? I can say that none of his regular calls have been picked up by the fax so far though.

Hpj4580- my phone is equipped with voicemail that picks up after the fourth ring of the phone. How do I set up the fax so that it works with my phone. Currently, when my phone goes to voicemail, the 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. :)

Is there a fax number for people to fax you?


Yes,
It is the phone number assigned to the phone line you plugged into the fax machine. You Fax machine is basically a Modem listening to the phone line. Someone dials and if they are sending a fax, the two machine's make squealing noises called a "handsake" then connect sends data.
It is then stored or printed or both.

If you pick up the phone while the two fax machines are connecting.
You will most likely disconnect the data transfer and get an ear full.

Hope this helps!

Need to set up phone/fax instead of just fax


I have a HP Officejet J6480 All-In-One and needed the answering machine and fax to be on at the same time.  I called the help line at HP and they said I needed another phone line into the home but I tried this and it worked. 
First I got a different phone number for the fax machine - they do this for no charge at my phone company. This is not another physical line into the home - it is just another phone number with a different ring - it rings 2 fast rings for the fax machine instead of the phones regular one ring. I set the answering machine built into the phone to pick up after 4 rings and I set the fax machine to pick up on 2 rings. Be sure to set it so the fax pick up number of rings are less than the answering machine pick up number of rings.  It worked for me. Hope this works for you too.

It looks like you have a distinctive ring service from your phone company. Change the ring pattern of your fax to its assigned ring pattern (double or triple ring). It could be assigned to 'all rings' right now, that's why your fax is picking up your landline calls as well.

Goodluck!

CAN'T RECEIVE A FAX


you can get the manual here: - LINK

Basically you plug your phone line into the fax machine line in and set the ring pick up to the desired length.

When someone calls you the fax should pick up and take the data.
