Here's the link to download the Lexmark X4270 User's Guide: http://bit.ly/cNbUKo. If you prefer to have the printer pick up faxes automatically, I suggest you configure the printer to pickup after the 2nd or 3rd ring before your voicemail picks it up. On the User's Guide, go to Faxing, Receiving a Fax for the instructions. For more info about the printer, go through the User's Guide. Hope this helps.

I just bought a x4270 lexmark.i do not see in the maual set up for smart ring,another term is short ring and ido have a answering machine set up aswell.im wondering if i can even use this unit.any answers?


Yes, you can.

You have to connect the answering machine to the X4270 like this

http://www.lexmark.com/publications/pdfs/2007/4200/ug/en/basics.html#wp633882

and set it to answer before the X4270 does. Say, 4 rings for the answering machine and 5 for the X4270.

The X4270 will monitor the few first seconds of the call anyway, and if it detects the whistle of an incoming fax, it will disconnect the answering machine and receive the fax.

With most answering machines, disconnecting while the greeting message is still playing will not be considered a call.

2 fax machines on 1 line


Once you place your both fax machine on same line you will keep getting this issue. Fax machine is waiting for a fax ring signal that your other machine is sending. Shut down one machine when faxing or connect your alt fax machine to a different number this way you can send faxes when need to.

Cant send faxes or recieve


Do you still have the problem?

Did you go through the entire setup procedure according to the manual including the fax/tel set up? Fax/tel setup tells the fax machine how you are using it. For example is the phone line used for just receiving faxes or is it used to receive phone calls AND receive incoming faxes OR is there a telephone answering device (TAD) attached to your phone line. If there is one, set it to 2 rigns. If you have it set to 4 rings the fax could disconnect before receiving the incoming fax. If you cannot send, then it has to be a line problem assuming you went through all the set up procedures correctly. Short of this you may have a bad unit and need to return it.

Fax answer machine


FAX RECEPTION THROUGH AN ANSWERING MACHINE:
This mode is recommended for a shared fax and telephone line.
To receive a fax if your All-In-One is connected to an answering machine:
On the control panel, press Fax.
Set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the All-In-One does. For example, if you have set the answering machine to answer calls after 3 rings, set the All-In-One to answer calls after 5 rings.
To change this setting on the All-In-One:
Press Options until Number of rings appears.
Press the right arrow (+) until After 5 rings appears.
Press Select.
Make sure the Auto Answer light on the All-In-One is on. When a ring is detected, the answering machine picks up the call.
If a fax is detected, the All-In-One receives the fax, and disconnects the answering machine.
If a fax is not detected, the answering machine completes the call.
