Hi and welcome to FixYa,

To your concern, yes. Depending on your model/version, either a:
side/rear slide or front panel button switch (older versions);
part of the settings/configuration in the MENU features/options.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

It should, I found a user guide here:

http://images.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/2007/5400/v3421438_en.pdf

I didn't see anything that mentioned pulse dialing, but perhaps setting it up for PBX would work.

Here are the steps:

Setting up to fax while behind a PBX
If the printer is being used in a business or office, it may be connected to a Private Branch Exchange (PBX) telephone
system. Ordinarily, when dialing a fax number, the printer waits to recognize the dial tone and then dials the fax
number. However, this method of dialing may not work if the PBX telephone system uses a dial tone that is not
recognizable to most fax machines. The “Dialing while behind a PBX” feature enables the printer to dial the fax number
without waiting to recognize the dial tone.
1 From the control panel, press Fax Mode.
2 Press .
3 Press or repeatedly until Fax Setup appears.
4 Press .
5 Press or repeatedly until Dialing and Sending appears.
6 Press .
7 Press or repeatedly until Dial Method appears.
8 Press .
9 Press or repeatedly until Behind PBX appears.
10 Press to save this setting.


It's on page 79.

Let me know if this works.

    And if you are still unable to connect with the pulse line then you have to use a billing tone filter (Lexmark part number 14B5109) to be installed on pulsed line.

Problems sending and receiving faxes.


  1. Open Lexmak Productiviti studio - 5600 - 6000 Series ( icon on Desktop)
  2. Open Setup and manage faxes link ( left bottom corner)
  3. On Ringing and Answering card look at the Manual Answer Code ( if some nuber inside delete it, it should be blank)
  4. On Dialing and sending card look at the Dial method (if you have a tone phone select Touch - tone, and if you have pulse phone select Pulse)
The diference betwen Touche Tone and Pulse is that Tone when you press nuber hear tone (like on cell phone), and Pulse when you dial nuber hear serie of short pulses (like when you dial nuber 5 you hear 5 short pulses like tttttt)

I can not receive a fax


First, make sure the phone line to the fax is plugged into the LINE socket, NOT THE PHONE socket on the machine. Next, try calling your fax machine from a cell phone to see if the fax answers. If no answer, you may have to go into FAX SETTINGS or FAX SETUP from the Lexmark menu. You may have to change any or all of the following: RINGER SETTINGS, AUTO RECEIVE, RECEIVE MODE, TONE/PULSE DIALING, OVERSEAS MODE, ETC. Trial and error getting the Lexmark to answer calls from the cell is probably the easiest way. BEFORE YOU START, print out or write down each setting you may change. This way, if it does not work, you can go back to the original setting.
