Faxes cannot be received but they can be sent Review the information below to determine why faxes are not being received.

  1. Phone company services: Do you have any of the following telephone line services from your telephone company: Voice Mail, Privacy Block, Security Screen, Anonymous Call Rejection, and Privacy Manager. These phone services are meant to prevent unwanted calls, but they will also stop faxes. Contact your telephone company for their recommended solution for receiving faxes on the same line with these services.
  2. If you wish to receive faxes automatically, verify that automatic answering is enabled on models that have an Auto Answer button, or that the Rings to Answer setting is set to a number equal to or larger than one for models that do not have an Auto Answer button. On models with an Answer Mode setting, it should be set to Fax, FaxTel, or AnswerMachine depending on your setup.
  3. If you have a HP PSC 2200 or an Officejet 6100 that interrupts calls or will not receive faxes, download and install the HP Firmware update for these products.
    1. Visit the HP Support and Drivers Home page .
    2. Select Download drivers and software .
    3. Type in your model number (HP PSC 2210xi for example).
    4. Click the search arrow to the right of the text entry box. You may be asked to select your product from a list of models.
    5. On the software download page, select your Windows version.
    6. Locate and select the firmware update.
    7. Follow the directions to download and install the update.
  4. If an answering machine is connected to the same line, fax reception problems can occur. These problems may be corrected by changing settings or phone line connections. For more information on using a TAM or distinctive ring service, go to Using the HP All-in-One and Fax Products with a Telephone Answering Machine (bpu04072).
  5. If you have a PBX phone system, or an ISDN or DSL modem connected to the line, there may be some phone line configuration problems. Fax machines are analog devices and cannot be used on a digital phone service such as those used in many businesses (PBX systems). Install an analog phone line for a fax machine. Refer to document Using an HP All-in-One or Fax Product on a PBX, ISDN, or DSL Phone System (bpu50333) to learn how to correct these problems.
  6. If the problem still exists, continue troubleshooting in the Faxes cannot be sent or received or you're not sure of the problem section below .

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.

Panafax uf-890

The likely hood is that someone has turned off auto answer check the manual how to change this the other option if it always did auto automatically then turn the machine off at the wall socket and then turn back on this will boot back how it was. (try this first) If it doesn't work then check that the auto answer is switched on.

If none of the above work then it will be the modem that is not picking up the line and will need to be replaced.

Hope the first solution helps you
Thanks J

How to set auto recieve fax

I am not entirely familiar with the keyboard layout of that model but there should be a button tht is marked auto/tad/ft with a light next to one of the 3 settings. push the button until the light next to auto turns on. If there is not a button then this setting will have to be set in the menu/fax setup.
