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.

Lexmark pinnacle pro901 will not receive faxes i can send but can not receive what do I do


Are you sharing your home phone line with your fax? Do you have an answering machine or a voicemail feature in the same line?
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 want to 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.

I cannot receive faxes on my lexmark X4270. It will ring but nothing come through


Please go through the following checklists:
  • Make sure the that the fax line is working. To check, insert a telephone device straight to the fax line. You should get a dial tone.
  • Make sure the telephone cord from the phone jack in the wall is plugged into the Line port on the back of your Lexmark printer.
  • Assign the correct fax number on the printer.
  • 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.
If these don't help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

Please go through the following checklist:
  • Make sure to plug the telephone fax line from the phone jack in the wall to the Line port on the back of your printer. For more info, please refer to the Lexmark X125 User's Guide.
  • If you have an answering machine connected to the same fax line, be sure to configure it so that it answers first before the fax machine (e.g. if your answering machine picks up on the 3rd ring, set your fax to pick up on the 6th ring or more)
  • If the line has a voicemail feature, disable it or request for a distinctive ring from your phone company.

How to get my s405 to receive a fax


You might want to check the User's Guide for your printer. To access it, on your computer, click on Start > All Programs > Lexmark > Pro200 Series > User's Guide. Go to page 62 to know how to setup your printer to fax.

If your fax is already setup - meaning you're already able to send faxes but not able to receive. Make sure that the Auto Answer is on. To check that, on the control panel of your printer, press on Setup > Fax Setup > Auto Answer.

If you have an answering machine, make sure that your fax will pick up 3 rings higher that your answering machine. If you answering machine picks up on the 5th ring, set your fax to pick up on the 8th ring. You can change that under fax setup.

If you have a voice mail service enabled in your phone, you'll need a distinctive ring feature for your fax to work if it's being shared on the same line.

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.
