Press the "fax" button on printer, then "menu" button
Use the left or right arrow keys to key across to "Receive mode settings" then press OK
Use the up or down keys to select receive mode. You should make sure it is in "telephone priority" then press OK

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.

How to recieve a fax on the Canon PIXMA MX340 Wireless Office All-in-One Printer


Take your incoming phone line and plug it into the place that says "line" on your fax machine. Plug another phone cord into where it says "phone" and connect this to your telephone. Test to make sure you have chosen the right places by dialing a phone number to fax to and listen for the dial tone. If you get a dial tone, then you have set it up correctly.

On the fax machine look for the button that says "menu". Push it and use the up and down arrows to navigate the options on the display. Look for fax set up and press "ok" or "enter" on the fax machines keyboard to access this area. Look for "number of rings" and change the fax machine to a number of rings that is less then your voice mail box if you have one. Then close and save your choices.

Have someone send a test fax by dialing your phone number for the line connected to the machine. The fax machine will pick up on the number of rings set and automatically begin receiving and printing a copy of your incoming fax.

You cannot use magic jack.

You can also choose to manually answer an incoming fax if you see that your display on the fax machine says "ringing" or incoming" you can push the "start" button and this will start receiving your incoming fax.

OKI B2540 MFP .... Just in the process of setting it up. I have one problem: I have one telepone line that rings once for most incoming calls but for faxing purposes I have a second number on the same line...


Hello,

You need to get an auto switch box such as the Command Communications Comswitch 5500 it was what is called distinctive ring and that if the function you need. You can plug in your phone, fax machine, answering machine, etc. You can get them from Office Depot, Office Max, Staples and such.

I hope this helps, If so please rate our solution.

My fax goes off periodicall when a call comes in.


It means that your fax machine is "answering" the incoming call before you pick up the handset. Usually, the factory setting on the fax machine picks up after two incoming rings. There are three ways you can address this issue: 1.) You can either change the number of rings to, say, five incoming rings to give you enough time to answer the phone before the fax machine picks up, or 2,) you can find out if your fax machine has a feature that allows for the voice hook "click over" that will allow you to override the fax when you pick up your handset, or 3.) turn your fax machine off until you need to send a fax.

If you want to investigate number 2.), then you'll need your operator's manual.

Good luck.

Fax Machine not picking up incoming faxes...


If this is on a network your network tech needs to set up your machine through one of the routers.
If the machine was pluged into the phone socet direct, there would be no problem. The phone will ring constantly, until you plug the phone to the machine.
If the machine does not answer the phone, then the problem maybe in the machines confguration for auto answer, or a modem board not working.

But on a network, the computer is trying to find the signal, but can't because it cannot find the machines signal.
This problem is in the network side. Check with your network specialist.

Incoming fax vs voice


Contact your telephone provider and see if they can offer you a second number for the line and "destinctive ring".
If your fax unit supports this feature, the fax number can do a double-ring where the normal number does a normal ring. The fax unit would then pick up double-ring calls.

Faxes office Jet K60


You have to have either a dedicated phone line just for the fax --or-- pay your phone company approximately $2 a month for a service called Distinctive Ringtone. This service will ring a certain way when you have an incoming fax. You will then configure your fax machine to pick up when this distinctive rington is heard. The ringtone is usually two or three quick rings. Your fax machine's settings will have this setting.

Unfortunately, you can't just plug your fax machine into your phone line and start sending/receiving faxes. Look through your fax machine's manual regarding the distinctive ring service. Good luck!!

Setting the fax to 2 short rings


Generally, on most newer faxes, there should be a setting under the options or menu for settings. You are looking for the "distinctive ring mode'.
