How do I fix an error that only comes up when I'm trying to fax a letter. The Error says: Phone Line Error. This is on a Lexmark X5340 all-in-one printer.


1) Make sure that the telephone line is plugged into the "LINE" port on the printer.
2) Test it with a different phone cable.
3) Is it a Telco line or an internet line?

On lexmark 7170 printer-when trying to fax-always get ''phone line error''-- connection is good from directline--phone works- Can't fax even without using pc I am using a Lexmark7170 printer with windows...


Hello. The "phone line error" usually comes up when the printer/fax is not connected properly to the fax line. Try to check behind the printer. There are two phone ports - Ext. and Line. The telephone cable should be plugged in to the Line port of the printer and the other end should go straight to the phone jack in the wall. If it is, try to use a different phone cable. Also, make sure that you assigned the correct fax number in your printer. Hope this helps.

Lexmark x9575 says line error when faxing


Probably noisy phone line. Even if voice is good, fax machines are more sensitive to line noise. Make sure the phone connections are secure and tight. Try another phone outlet if you can. Then try it from another location.

Phone line error comes up on the printer. cannot send faxes.


Do you have Digital, DSL, Vonage, or a Cable phone Line?

Fax machines only work on ANALOG phone lines.

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.

Receiving a fax on my Lexmark X6170


for these companies, try disconnecting the phone tremporarily to see if thsi is interferring just with these particular faxes. Sometimes if a company's fax is set to phone/fax, it may be trying to call you first beacuse ths would be the default settings. If it detects no phone it may by default accept your fax no problems. Hope this helps.

Hi, Remote Fax Error being displayed


As some fax machines are not capable of receiving color faxes, legal size faxes, or faxes at 200x200 dpi resolution, make sure you are sending an A4 or letter size (not legal size) page at standard resolution:
Press the Black button for a black-and-white fax. Press the Quality button to check the selected resolution.
Make sure the All-In-One has enough memory free when you want to save the scanned documents into memory before sending the fax. Please refer to the following document: Click here to link to the relevant document.
Note: The scanned documents will only be saved in the memory before the whole fax is sent if the Scan Before Dial option is turned on. (This is the factory default.) Up to 50 black-and-white fax pages can be stored in memory at standard resolution when there are no pending faxes in the queue.
Turn off the Scan Before Dial option by pressing the following keys on the operator panel:
Press the Fax button, then press Options 15 times to get to ADVANCED FAX mode.
Press Select.
Press Options nine times until SCAN BEFORE DIAL appears on the LCD display.
Change the setting from Yes to No using the + (right arrow) button.
Press Select.
Note: The Scan Before Dial option controls whether a document is scanned before a call is dialed. This parameter only applies to a mono fax that uses either 200x100 or 200x200 resolution. Higher resolution mono faxes and all color faxes are scanned after the call is dialed and the receiving machine's capabilities are known.
Lower the fax transmission speed to 14400 or even 9600 bps, as some older fax machines are not capable of receiving a fax at a high speed. To do so:
Press the Fax button, then press Options 15 times to get to ADVANCED FAX.
Press Select.
Press Options 10 times until MAX SEND SPEED appears on the LCD display.
Change it to 9600 BPS using the - (left arrow) button.
Press Select.
Turn off ECM (Error Correction Mode) by pressing the following keys on the operator panel:
Press the Fax button, then press Options 15 times to get to ADVANCED FAX.
Press Select.
Press Options 11 times until ERROR CORRECTION appears on the LCD display.
Change the setting from On to Off using the + (right arrow) button.
Press Select.
Note: Turning off this option makes it possible to receive a fax when the receiver fax machine does not support certain error correction modes. The X6100 Series only supports 1-D MH encoding with the error correction. Fax transmissions without ECM and other ECM types can result in bad quality on the received page.
