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.

I cannot receive faxes on my lexmark X4270. It will ring but nothing come through


Please go through the following checklists:
  • Make sure the that the fax line is working. To check, insert a telephone device straight to the fax line. You should get a dial tone.
  • Make sure the telephone cord from the phone jack in the wall is plugged into the Line port on the back of your Lexmark printer.
  • Assign the correct fax number on the printer.
  • 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.
If these don't help, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center for additional assistance.

I have a lexmark x5650 printer and I can send a fax but I cannot recieve a fax. Can you please help me?


Ensure that the telephone/fax line is plugged into the Line port on the back of Lexmark printer and not in the Phone port.

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.

I can not receive a fax


First, make sure the phone line to the fax is plugged into the LINE socket, NOT THE PHONE socket on the machine. Next, try calling your fax machine from a cell phone to see if the fax answers. If no answer, you may have to go into FAX SETTINGS or FAX SETUP from the Lexmark menu. You may have to change any or all of the following: RINGER SETTINGS, AUTO RECEIVE, RECEIVE MODE, TONE/PULSE DIALING, OVERSEAS MODE, ETC. Trial and error getting the Lexmark to answer calls from the cell is probably the easiest way. BEFORE YOU START, print out or write down each setting you may change. This way, if it does not work, you can go back to the original setting.
