I cannot send a fax!!!! I'm so frustrated, I have done everything the instructions have said to do, and it's not working. Before I take this back,what else should I try.


Have you tried to fax directly from the machine? For this you need to connect the phone line to your All-in-One Pixma. Can you copy directly on the machine. If you can do that the machine is not at fault. You do not even need ink for faxing.
The next step is to hook the machine to the computer through USB and install the software (drivers and application). Try to print from the computer. If it works then you may have a configuration problem with you connection (Ethernet or Wireless).
I will finish with the obvious: Reread the installation procedure patiently. Reinstall the drivers and the application software. Read the router software and use the router management to configure your connection.

Use the Lexmark All-In-One Center application to send faxes from your computer (make sure your computer is connected to a fax modem). From the Creative Tasks section of the All-In-One Main page, click Fax using PC modem. Follow the instructions on the computer screen.

Fax will not print: I connected the fax machine and plugged it in. It sends faxes OK. When a fax is sent to it, nothing comes out. The sending fax doesn't receive an error message, seems like all went...


Does the machine print anything? such as a directory or print when making a copy? I rather suspect it does not. When an incoming fax is recvd does the paper get pulled in and come out blank? If so your problem is with printing (or lack of it). Perform head cleaning. Also make sure the black cartridge still does not have its deal stuck on it. Post again if you still have problem.

I got the OfficeJet 4500 (not the wireless) and there isn't a phone jack near my computer. Could I set the machine up in the other room and still have the print/scan/copy features work properly?


well yes but you need to connect it to a computer to print,,

by itself with the phone line, you can fax and copy but not scan and print..

Why not just purchase a Phone extension (50'' or what ever length you need and extend the line to a place close to the computer ??

How do i print out the recieved memory?


It appears the feature you are looking for is called Print Local Copy.

The Print Local Copy option allows you to
set the machine to print the fax on your machine, if fax
forwarding is completed without any error

The instructions are not clear, but they seem to indicate that you find this under Menu, reports.
Here is a link to the complete user guide.

Recieving fax no printout, all other printing processes ok


When you say all other printing processes are ok, I am assuming you can make copies and print from the computer. If so...then are the blank faxes coming from several different fax machines or are they coming from one particular fax machine. If one particular fax machine, then the problem is probably on their end. I need to go backwards a second....when you receive a fax does the machine spit out a blank page or no paper is fed at all..it just receives the fax? Is the machine programmed to just receive faxes to memory to be printed out later? It doesn't make sense for it to print or copy but not to print a fax. If problem persist try a different fax modem.
