    Here's the link to download the Lexmark X7170 User's Guide: http://bit.ly/c8EHEn. Go to Faxing for the instructions on how to go through the settings on the printer. For setting the printer to ring to answer at 0, set it to pickup on the 1st ring. To turn off the distinctive ring, set the ring pattern to any. Hope this helps.

    How to set the tax


    First, to make sure it will work, your fax machine should be going directly to the phone jack, with the answering mach/phone (if any) going to the ext port in the back of the fax machine. That way, the fax machine can "eavesdrop" for any fax tones for every call. If you want to use the fax machine to work with an answering machine on the same line, make sure to set the answering machine to 2 rings lower than the fax machine. Let's say, you have the answering machine set to 4 rings, your fax machine then should have 6 rings. You can set the number of rings for your fax machine under "basic fax setup" of the "menu". Otherwise, you can set the fax machine to auto answer by pressing the auto answer button.

    THE FAX ANSWERS BEFORE THE ANSWERING MACHINE. ALL ALONG THE FAX WOULD ANSWER FAXES AND THE ANSWERING MACHINE WOULD ANSWER CALLS. NOW THE FAX ANSWERS ALL CALLS. ON FOUR RINGS. WHAT SETTINGS DO I HAVE TO SET...


    You have to set the fax to at least one more ring than the answer machine. When the phone rings the fax wakes up and listens after the answer machine picks up, if it hears a fax it will take over and print the fax.

    How to set hp1040 fax to work with aout answering


    Hi,

    If you are using the same phone line as your fax, you can start by connecting the answering machine on Line2 or 2-Ext at the back of the fax. Set the fax to answer on two rings higher than the Answering Machine. (for example: if answering maching is 4 rings, fax is 6 rings)

    And then, turn on the auto answer.

    Can I use as phone/answering machine and fax


    no, this machine does not have a message center. the only way is to hook an actual answering machine up to the "ext" jack on your fax. set fax to answer on 1-2 rings, and set your answering machine to answer on at least 4 rings, and set your fax receive mode to "tad" which means telephone answering device.

    I can't figure out how to set up my fax machine so it won't mess up my phone and answering machine either.


    Telephone wire goes to fax, out to answer machine, Important to set fax on answer machine mode and set the ring count to pick up AFTER the telephone answer machine. Set fax ring count to 5 rings, and answering machine to 3 or 4. When some one calls answer machine or you pick up first, then if no one will leave a msg. fax tones are different than voice tones, they are called CNG tones. Most new fax machine will sense this and if a fax will go to fax only. Ring count is the key. Also you could set fax up for maual mode and would not jump to anser machine or fax till you want.....good luck

    How do I set up my X7170 to receive a FAX?


    Link
    Receiving a fax You can choose to receive a fax automatically, manually, or through an answering machine.
    Note: For your All-In-One to receive a color fax, the machine from which you are receiving must also support color faxes.
    Automatically Recommended for a dedicated fax line
    Your All-In-One automatically accepts incoming faxes using the automatic answering mode. When the Auto Answer light is on, the All-In-One receives a fax after the specified number of rings set in the Options menu.
    To set a number of rings for the automatic answering mode:
    1. On the control panel, press Mode repeatedly until Fax is selected.
    2. Press Options until ANSWER FAX WHEN appears.
    3. Press + to choose After 1 ring, After 2 rings, After 3 rings (default), or After 5 rings.
    4. Press Select.
    5. Make sure the Auto Answer light on the All-In-One is on.
    When the number of rings that you set is detected, the All-In-One automatically receives your fax.
    Manually Recommended for a shared fax and telephone line
    You can choose which incoming faxes to accept by setting your All-In-One to manual answering mode.
    1. Make sure the All-In-One Auto Answer light is off.
    2. Press *9* on the telephone after you answer the telephone and hear fax tones.
    3. Hang up the telephone.
    The All-In-One receives your fax.
    Answering machine Recommended for a shared fax and telephone line
    To receive a fax with an answering machine connected to your All-In-One, set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the All-In-One does. For example, if you set the answering machine to answer calls after 3 rings, set the All-In-One to answer calls after 5 rings.
    1. On the control panel, press Mode repeatedly until Fax is selected.
    2. Press Options until ANSWER FAX WHEN appears.
    3. Press + until After 5 rings appears.
    4. Press Select.
    5. Make sure the Auto Answer light on the All-In-One is on.
    When a ring is detected, the answering machine picks up the call.
    • If a fax is detected, the All-In-One receives the fax and disconnects the answering machine.
    • If not, the answering machine completes the call.
    Note: You must set up the equipment as shown in connecting to an answering machine.

    Set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the All-In-One does. For example, if you have set the answering machine to answer calls after 3 rings, set the All-In-One to answer calls after 5 rings.

    How to set Ans/Fax receiving mode of SCX-4521F?


    Try setting the receive mode to FAX/ANS. If you want the fax not to pickup before a phone call comes in, you should set the number of fax rings to a higher number, like "5" for instance. Set the answering machine rings less and the fax higher. The machine will usually record a message first and then detect a fax tone.
