Hooking up fax to KX TG7871 Panasonic Phone


There is excellent support here on basic fax setups. You have what is known as "Distinctive Ringing Service". There are pros and cons to the various setups. I assume you recognize the rings and answer only when the ring for the landline talk comes on. The fax will pick up the faxes, and the answering machine will pick up the voice.

Need model number of your fax - google that!

Service manual for your phone.

This link shows various configurations of setting up your phone/fax/answering machine or using an answering service.
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&docname=c00059780#Dist_ring
Distinctive Ringing Service setup While it is not available everywhere, a distinctive ringing service can be purchased from most telephone companies. With this service, more than one phone number is assigned to the same phone line. Each phone number will ring differently. The main number will ring with a normal single ring and the additional number will ring with a distinctive ring pattern assigned by the phone company.
When a distinctive ringing service is used, set the Rings to Answer to 2 and then follow the steps below to set the distinctive ringing pattern:
  1. Press Setup , press 4 , and then press 1 to enter the Answer Ring Pattern setup of the Advanced Fax settings.
  2. Use the Right Arrow to scroll through the available settings. When the ring pattern assigned by the phone company displays (double or triple rings), press OK .

Can lexmark x4650 be set to recognize fax?


For more details on how to setup your Lexmark X4650 printer for faxing, please refer to the User's Guide found on the Lexmark website.
Additional info:If you have an answering on the same line as your fax:

To make sure the printer picks up incoming faxes, set Auto Answer to On, and then set the printer to pick up after a greater number of rings than the answering machine. For example, if the answering machine picks up calls after four rings, then set the printer to pick up after six rings. This way, the answering machine picks up calls first and your voice calls are received. If the call is a fax, then the printer detects the fax signal on the line and takes over the call.

If you have a voicemail feature associated in the same line as your fax:

Voice mail and fax can share the same telephone line if you subscribe to a distinctive ring service offered by your telephone company. This feature allows you to have multiple telephone numbers on one telephone line. Each telephone number has a designated ring pattern (single ring, double ring, triple ring, or double and triple ring). The different ring patterns let you know which telephone number was dialed, and which device you should use to answer the call.


If you do not have distinctive ring service, then set the printer to receive faxes manually (Auto Answer Off). This setting lets you receive both voice calls and fax calls, but works best if you use voice mail more often. You need to turn off voice mail whenever you are expecting a fax.

Fax won't answer


If you have an answering machine connected to the same line as your fax:

To make sure the printer picks up incoming faxes, set Auto Answer to On, and then set the printer to pick up after a greater number of rings than the answering machine. For example, if the answering machine picks up calls after four rings, then set the printer to pick up after six rings. This way, the answering machine picks up calls first and your voice calls are received. If the call is a fax, then the printer detects the fax signal on the line and takes over the call.

If you do not have distinctive ring service, then set the printer to receive faxes manually (Auto Answer Off). This setting lets you receive both voice calls and fax calls, but works best if you use voice mail more often. You need to turn off voice mail whenever you are expecting a fax.

I hope this helps.

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.

I have a canon mx410 all in one inkjet printer.i need assistance with setting up the fax to a phone line. Thank you Zainy


  • Call your phone company to sign up for service. Ask for an additional line with a "distinctive ring." The additional line is for your fax machine---whenever you hear the distinctive ring you'll know that a fax is coming through. Get voice mail service on the regular phone line as well.

    Purchase a two-jack phone splitter (sometimes called a wall jack adapter) that allows two cords to plug into the same phone line. Plug it into the phone jack in your wall.

  • Run a phone cord from both machines into the wall adapter. Test the system by calling both your regular phone number (assure it rings and the voice mail picks up) and your fax number to see if the fax machine picks up (you'll hear a set of strange beeping tones).

    Can't send or receive faxes


    it's most likely the compression on the phone line or you need to set up your fax machine for proper receive mode.
    Contact your phone service provider to see if they support faxes.
    (Faxes cannot handle nearly as much compression as standard voice)

    I am trying to setup answering data and fax on the same phone line. What setting do you use to isolate data vs voice for incoming calls and either the fax pick up or the phone call go to a voicemail? JC


    Order "distinctive ring" from your telephone-company.

    One style of "ring" can be routed to the FAX,
    and the other style of "ring" can be routed to voice-mail.

    Setting personalized ring


    Its called distintive Ring. This is the instructions from the manual -

    VERY IMPORTANT
    If you have Voice Mail or a TAD (Telephone Answering Device) and want to keep
    one of your phone numbers dedicated only to fax calls, you must leave the fax machine
    in MANUAL mode at all times while using the distinctive ring feature. Here’s why:
    Manual mode will never pick up a call by itself, since it is «Neutral ». When the fax
    machine is in this « neutral » mode, the Distinctive Ring Feature can be activated. The
    distinctive ring feature is actually an answering mode. So, do not activate FAX ONLY
    mode or FAX /TEL mode while using distinctive ring; otherwise, the fax machine will
    answer calls for all the numbers.
    Registering the Distinctive Ring Pattern
    1
    Set the fax machine to MANUAL mode.
    2 Press Menu/Set, 0, 1.
    3 Press to select DISTINCTIVE:SET?, and then press Menu/Set.
    4 Press to select the prestored ring pattern you want to assign, and then press
    Menu/Set. (You will hear each pattern as you scroll through the four patterns.)
    Be sure to choose the pattern assigned by the Telephone Company.
    5 Press Stop/Exit.
