Make sure the wire from the wall is plugged into the port marked "line" and not "phone". Also try plugging a regular phone into the wall and make sure you can make and receive a call. It could be a phone line problem.

Fax is not coming through.

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.

Hello. If everything else is working, printing and copying, unplug the printer from the power source. Check the telephone line from your phone company by unplugging the fax machine from the wall jack where it is connected to. Plug a telephone device straight to that wall jack and check for a dial tone. If there's no dial tone, contact your phone company. If there is, plug the fax machine back to that wall jack. You can also try replacing the telephone cable with a another known working cable. Plug the printer back to the power source. Check again. Hope this helps.

We can't receive faxes on Lexmark X6150. It has a voice over IP phone service thru 5Linx

Hi. The problem can be caused by several factors. It can be the physical connection, the telephone line through 5Linx or the settings in the printer. Here are some tips on how to resolve the problem:
1. Check the telephone cable your using. Check for defects. Try to change the cable.
2. Make sure cable is connected in the Line port of the printer and the other end to the correct port of your 5Linx. If your not sure where to connect it to 5Linx, contact phone provider.
3. To check if the phone line is working, try to plug a telephone device in the 5linx where you're plugging the printer. Check for a dial tone. If there is, it's ok. If no dial tone, contact phone provider.
4. Voice over IP phone service uses digital signal which is not stable. The fax will have its optimum performance when plugged in to an analog signal. You can call your provider to have line adjusted to work with faxing.
5. If the telephone line comes with voicemail, disable the voicemail. It's settings might be having conflict with the printer settings.
6. Set printer transmission speed to 9600 bps. This setting can work with IP phone service.
Hope these helps. Good luck!

Phone dialup-local phone service

You do not need a dial-up internet connection to use fax. All you need is a working phone line. Beyond that it works like a phone call (think of it as one fax machine calling another fax machine), so if your plan allows you to call locally only, then you can only fax locally as well. If you try to fax long distance, it may or may not work based on whether you can make a long distance phone call. Also, you will be charged for long distance calls if you fax long distance. These fees have nothing to do with Lexmark or whatever brand your fax machine is, it is the phone company that will charge you.

Lexmark X6150 Inkjet - Problems Communicating with Printer

For scanning - use window drivers, try under window Photo Gallery. Works fine. For printing, the problem is when it tries to "delete" a file it prints it fails. Can not figure this one out.

Lexmark x9575 says line error when faxing

Probably noisy phone line. Even if voice is good, fax machines are more sensitive to line noise. Make sure the phone connections are secure and tight. Try another phone outlet if you can. Then try it from another location.

Problems with lexmark 1270 sending fax

See if you are getting a dial tone from the phone.
-> If you can't, check the line.
-> If you can get a dial tone and successfully call out. Make sure you are not running on a digital phone system, IP phones, using DSL, etc. Fax machines have problems on digital lines and many either won't work without a line scrubber or work intermittantly.
