Re: X4270

First off you need to connect the printer to your computer. Make sure the fax is plugged into the phone line. Then install the correct drivers for your printer.

If you have vista follow this: link click here

Attention Windows Vista Users
If you have installed your printer on your PC using an original Lexmark Driver CD that came with your product and you are experiencing problems when printing, you may have installed the Windows XP driver.

Follow these steps to resolve:
· Disconnect your USB cable from your printer.
· Uninstall all Lexmark printer drivers on your PC.
· Download the correct Vista driver for your model.
· Install the driver on your PC.

Important - Do not reconnect the USB cable until the install software prompts the question of how the printer is connected.

Fax dials other fax numbers, but claims no answer.

Try connecting the fax to a different phone line. Problem may be due to interferences on phone line.

I cant print with my lexmark printer, it is a type x2480 every time i go to print it wants me to set up a fax line please help me

Check your printer properties to make sure it is set to print using the proper port. If it is set to 'print to fax' it will attempt to install a fax line every time you try to print. It should be set to your LPT (printer) port or your USB port, depending on how you have it connected to your computer.

I need to change the phone number on my fax machine

Software was installed on your computer when the printer was installed. You most likely have a Icon by your clock for your printer. Open up this icon. Look for Fax setup or fax settings. This will allow you to change your phone number.
Without knowing the model no & name I can not look into the setup files and advise you better.

I can not get my Brother Intellifax machine to repsond to my print command from my computer. Help me before I get violent.

Need a little more information regarding which IntelliFax you have to really be able to help, but from what I am finding, you probably have one that interfaces via a Network Connection, in which case you'd have to ensure that the IP address of the Fax, and the one your computer is sending print data to correlate to each other.

But please, before getting violent, let us know more of what you have to better assist you.
