Need more information....

There is an RJ11 (i.e. regular phone port) on the back of the printer. It will have a safty plug in the hole to prevent unnecsary damage when not in use. Pull that out and insert your phone line.

Note: This printer as with most older printers do not work with Voice Over IP phones (e.g. Vonage, cable Companies, etc.)

We can't receive a fax!!! how are we supose to connect with a phne line and the computer???


You don't need to have a computer plugged in to the Lexmark printer to receive faxes. Here's an article on How to Configure the Lexmark X7170 to Receive Faxes. Just click on this link: http://bit.ly/d643uT. If you are sharing your home phone line with the fax and you have an answering machine on the same line, make sure to configure the answering machine to pick up first then the fax machine. Voicemail feature can also block incoming faxes. Once voicemail picks up the fax, signal won't be passed on to the printer. But if you want, you can also contact Lexmark technical support to further investigate the problem.

Lexmark x7170 wont send or receive fax. Any idea? Was working fine then nothing!


Check your phone line by plugging in a spare telephone handset and listen for the dial tone.

Is there a fax number for people to fax you?


Yes,
It is the phone number assigned to the phone line you plugged into the fax machine. You Fax machine is basically a Modem listening to the phone line. Someone dials and if they are sending a fax, the two machine's make squealing noises called a "handsake" then connect sends data.
It is then stored or printed or both.

If you pick up the phone while the two fax machines are connecting.
You will most likely disconnect the data transfer and get an ear full.

Hope this helps!

Lexmark x9575 says line error when faxing


Probably noisy phone line. Even if voice is good, fax machines are more sensitive to line noise. Make sure the phone connections are secure and tight. Try another phone outlet if you can. Then try it from another location.

Phone line error


Phone line goes to the LINE port. Check for a dial-tone with a regular phone.

I have a lexmark x7170 and it will not fax or recieve faxes. I have replaced the phone cord and verifyed that the plug indeed is working. What else can I try?


There are usually 2 phone jack ports on the back of the fax / MFP
One will say line, the other phone. You want to make sure it is plugged into the Line port.
Also, if you hit "On hook dialing" does it give you a dial tone?
