Lexmark 5250 won't fax. I have installed everything several times but says something about OCR not working. It will scan & print instead of sending document to Fax. I can open Fax window, but...


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.

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 ??

I have an SCX-4521F and suddenly I cannot send or receive a fax. There is notification that a fax has been sent to me, but it does not print. When I send a fax, it tells me there is "no answer"...


Hi, I am Steve and I and going to help solve your issue.
I am going to start with the 2 simple things that may be causing this. Please accept my apologies if you have tried both of these solutions. If you have please let me know and we can go on to more advanced troubleshooting.
As the machine has suddenly stopped sending or receiving faxes I am assuming it was working prior to this issue.
The first thing to check is whether the machine is still setup to enter fax mode. the best explanation for this is directly from the Samsung support - click here for the instructions on ensuring automatic fax mode is enabled.
alternatively the memory could be full. again I am going to use the Samsung support site instructions to help you clear the memory - click here for the instructions and you want to clear the fax memory (option fax feature) if this does not work it may also be worth using fax setup and advanced fax - these will reset the fax machine to its factory defaults.
Please let me know if these solve your issue, if not we can move onto further troubleshooting?

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.

IntelliFax 4100 suddenly slow to print


If the dial tone sounds NOISY or SCRATCHY there probably is a phone line problem. Try changing the phone cord first. Are you using DSL phone service?

You have a very reliable fax machine.

Ink cartridges, recieving fax


It sound like your machine is receiving but as soon as it tries to prints the fax it has this problem.

Rewind the ink ribbon so it is nice and tight in the housing. Clean the black roller above it with some cleaning alcohol or equivalent (nothing too harsh).

See how that goes if you are still having problems replace the whole cartridge (not the refills) PC-401.
