Question about Lexmark X7170 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

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.

    All of a sudden when scanning, copying or faxing the results are a total black page. I can receive faxes and print, but can't send out/scan.

Hi i can't send and receive faxes. My phone


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.

Receives OK, sends faxes with black all over print area.


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 verticle lines when faxing, copying, and scanning.


This print defect can be caused by a foreign object or substance on the outside of the scanner assembly, usually located on the plastic cover that the paper passes over.

Lexmark 8300 print/scan/fax


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.
Good luck,

My fax machine


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.

Fax confirmations


i have read the manual end to end and I don't think you can.
Only thing I see is this.

Customizing your settings using the Lexmark Fax Solutions You can adjust the fax settings in the Lexmark Fax Solutions. These settings apply to the faxes you send or receive.
  1. Click Start onestep.gif Programs onestep.gif Lexmark 7100 Series onestep.gif Lexmark Fax Solutions.
  2. Click Adjust speed dial list and other fax settings. hfaxsetutil.jpg
  3. Click each tab and change the settings as desired.
  4. Press Save Settings after you finish your updates. Nothing is saved until you press this button.
  5. Click Close.
The following table contains the Setup and Settings tabs for the Lexmark Fax Solutions.
On this tab
You can
Personalize
  • Enter your company name and fax number.
  • Enter your name, company name, phone number and address as you want them to appear your cover page.
  • Select a cover page for your fax.
Send
  • Choose to use error correction.
  • Choose to use fax header.
  • Select a maximum send speed and a print quality for outgoing faxes.
  • Choose whether to scan the entire document before dialing the number.
  • Select when to print a fax usage report.
  • Select when to print a fax activity report
Select when to print an activity report is the only close item I can find. Nothing whatsoever about a confirmation report.

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 · http://www.slipstick.com/addins/services/fax.htm#internetfax · http://www.slipstick.com/addins/services/fax.htm · http://www.savetz.com/fax Tim
