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.

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.

Should you still need assistance, please leave a comment to my response and I'll get back to you. Should this resolves your problem, your rating will be greatly appreciated.

WANT TO ATTACH A MESSAGE MACHINE


The message machine needs to be set to answer 1 ring before the fax is set to answer. When the phone rings the fax starts listening even when the answer machine picks up. If the fax hears fax tones it will receive the fax and if no tones the answer machine will take a message.

I am having trouble with setting up the fax function with my phone line. I have one line I am trying to use for both phone and fax. I am able to receive faxes automatically when I am not on the phone. ...


You need to make sure that the line from the wall jack is plugged into the "Line" jack on the fax then the phone is connected to the "Phone" or "Out" jack. You might want to check the number of rings before your fax picks up.

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.

When you ring it from your biz line, does it pick up? If you're using a high speed dsl line, you'll need to put the machine where a normal phone would go. You should be able to ring the machine using our cell phone. If the machine indicates an incoming call, but still doesn't pick up, check the settings and make sure it isn't set to manual instead of automatic fax pickup.

Fax setup


I set my fax on auto answer with a short number of rings. My answering machine is set up to ring more. If I am receiving a fax it picks it up; if not, the answering machine comes on after the designated number of rings. Thus far this has worked for me. Good luck.

Studder Ring


I am thinking that you have a ring that the machine does not recognize. If you look at your manual on page A-2, it shows what rings the machine can recognize. If it is not one of those rings, then you would need to ask the phone company to alter the 'custom' ring.

If it is an acceptable custom ring, page A-2 also shows you how to set the machine to pick up on that specific ring.

If you don't have the manual handy, this link will take you to it online:
