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.

Cant receive faxes. constant busy signal when dialing in.


Hi Janet
Try using a standard phone to call your Fax Line
Connect a phone to this Line to test for voice
Disconnect Fax Machine from Phone Line
Reset Fax machine
The Fax machine is supposed to respond to the right tones being sent down the voice line
If it is not responding & all else works then check your Fax settings for "Receiving"

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.

MY LEXMARK X125 STOPPED RECIEVING AND SENDING FAXES. IT HAS ITS OWN LINE NOT CONNECTED TO COMPUTER. ALSO MY SPEAKER DIAL TONE IS NOT WORKING. WHEN CHECKING MY DRPD WONT SET UP EITHER. THIS JUST HAPPENED 2...


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.

Cannot receive faxes


What is the make and model?

Call the fax machine from a regular phone to see if it answers.

I think you have some sort of phone line problem.

Fax machine modems are good or bad, nothing in-between.

hook a phone to the line if you get a dial tone, and can dial out it is not the line, make certain the phone line is connected to correct phone jack port on the machine. there is usually phone and a line on there. connect it to the line.
What happens when you try to fax, do you get an error, what is that error. try to manually fax something.
