Question about Lexmark X8350 Print, Scan, Copy and Fax All-in-One Multifunction Printer Plus Photo w/USB Printer ...
Our MFC-8840D has been lovely for print/copy, but I'm now trying to make it our fax machine. It shows only 4 rings as the max before auto-fax-pickup, but my answering machine needs those 4 rings before *it* picks up. Any way to circumvent the 4 ring max on the 8840? I can't reset the answering machine to 2 rings (it's only other option) because we'll never be able to get to the phone in time! Thanks.
Yes, I know that from the manual ... that's why I'm asking if there's an undocumented way to circumvent the 4 ring max on the fax machine. I guess there's not one that you know of, huh? The other faxes I've used had a 5 or 6 ring setting, but this one maxes out at 4 rings, which isn't helpful. -di

The TAD (TELPHONE ANSWERING DEVICE) must answer within four rings (the recommended setting is two rings). The MFC cannot hear CNG tones until the TAD has answered the call, and with four rings there are only 8 to 10 seconds of CNG tones left for the fax ?handshake?. message. do not recommend using the toll saver feature on your external answering machine if it exceeds five rings.
