I can receive faxes but when I send them they are illegible.
I can receive faxes and print documents on my Lexmark x7170 but when sending faxes, scanning or copying documents the quality is poor to totally illegible. There are dark verticle lines and ink all over the paper.

Here's the link to download the Lexmark X7170 User's Guide: http://bit.ly/c8EHEn. Go to Faxing for the instructions on how to go through the settings on the printer. For setting the printer to ring to answer at 0, set it to pickup on the 1st ring. To turn off the distinctive ring, set the ring pattern to any. Hope this helps.
Lift the document feeder and clean the small exposure glass located to the left of the main exposure glass.There must be some alien substance on it like glue,ink or correction fluid.Any mark on this small exposure glass will cause lines to appear on transmitted faxes.
There are sensors in the document feeder that detect the width and length of the paper being copied or faxed. Try getting a can of compressed air and go nuts blowing all the dust out of the feeder, if you spray everything you can get to, you will probably blow clean the sensors. Just an educated guess.
We are having the same problem. I can hear it dial, but when the receiver fax picks up, there is no signal from the Lexmark to let the receiver know that we are sending. All we need is one stupid "BEEP"! So much for plug-and-play.
Sending a fax by DSL requires one of two methods:
1. You obtain a DSL line filter suitable for connecting a standard voice telephone to the DSL line, then connect an analog fax modem to the line through the line filter.
2. You hire an Internet E-faxing service. See
