Did you put the originals page(s) in the machine FIRST to fax, then enter the number then press start?
If you enter the phone number 1st BEFORE putting your originals in the feeder, the machine thinks you want to make a copy.
The FAX Mode is the setting for incoming faxes.
Try that and let me know if it works.
There should also be a button called "Hook" or "speaker" or something that you hit and you will hear the dial tone.
Once you hear the dial tone, you can dial the number, (make sure the pages you want to fax is in the feeder.
Once you hear the fax high pitch noise, hit the start button.
Hope this helps.
Let me know if it does and also remember to leave a feedback and rating if I have helped you.
Thanks and good luck.

Iam getting remote fax error


Please try this approach:

1. Try to resend the fax. There may have been a problem with the quality of the connection.

2. Decrease the transmission speed of your fax modem. Press Setup button > Fax Setup > Dialing and Sending > Max Send Speed > 9600. Resend the fax.

3. Re-register your user information - fax name and fax number. Some fax machines block faxes without sender information. Press Setup button > Fax Setup > Dialing and Sending > Your Fax Name (re-enter your fax name). Follow the same steps and go to Your Fax Number - re-enter your fax number. Resend the fax.

I hope this helps.

Lexmark x5150 all-in-one inkjet printer. trying to get the fax to work. i have dsl.


You may have to experiment to get the fax to work on DSL. Try these suggestions: press MENU, then scroll to:PRINT REPORTS. Scroll to HELP LIST and press SET BUTTON. Press START button to print HELP LIST. On the HELP LIST printout, locate the FAX MENU. Using a cell phone, call your fax and see if the fax answers. If not, try changing the following settings (change one setting, then call the fax with the cell and see if it answers, Make sure you set each changed setting back to what it was, until you find the right one.) try changing: RING DELAY, F/T RING TIME, EASY RECEIVE, OVERSEAS MODE. Also on the HELP LIST, find the INITIAL SETUP MENU. Select RECEIVE MODE, and try each option, again calling the fax with your cell until it answers.After you get the fax to answer calls from your cell, try sending and receiving with another fax, or use Brothers AUTOMATIC FAX-BACK SYSTEM, which will automatically send your fax a test printout when you call it. Just call 1-800-521-2846 from your fax machine, IT MAY BE ALREADY PROGRAMMED INTO YOUR MACHINES AUTO DIAL LIST, AUTO DIAL NUMBER 001..
