95 percent of the time that is a phone line issue.
If there is more than one item on that line, it can be an issue.
I will throw out everything since I am not there.
A DSL or digital phone line can cause that problem. The majority of fax machines still require an analogue phone line.
Make sure that Junk Fax is off, secure fax is off, and that the ECM mode is ON. ECM is error correction mode.
Also be sure manual receive is not turned on.
I strongly suspect a phone line issue. I will explaine.
There are 3 phone line conditions that have to be correct for a fax machine to pick up. 1 is the phone line voltage, 2 is the phone line current, 3 is what is called decibel loss.
The reason you can send and call out on the line is that you manually turn "on" the phone line when you pick up the phone or when you select send on a fax, it is manually switching a relay to connect to the phone line.
When you are receiving you need the correct signal level to activate the fax. Think of how it is when your TV/VCR remote has weak batteries. You press the button and sometimes it works most of the time it doesn't. The volatge on the battery will still read 1.5 volts, but you dont have enough current draw or wattage to get the proper signal to change channels or turn the sound up and down. Same concept. But when you walk up to the TV/VCD you push the buttons it works fine. Very same concept.

How can I send and receive a fax from Lexmark x4270.?


You can send faxes via the operator panel, the All-In-One Center, or the fax driver.
Using the Operator Panel:
  1. Make sure your All-In-One is switched on.
  2. Load up to 30 sheets of your original document face down in the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder). Note: When you load small paper sizes, place your document in the center of the tray and adjust the paper guides to the edges of the paper.
  3. On the operator panel, press Fax.
Using the keypad you can:
  • Enter the fax number, and then press Black or Color.
  • Press Speed Dial, and then:
- Use the arrow keys to scroll through the list to find the number you want, and then press Black or Color. - Use the keypad to enter a two-digit number (viewable in the upper left of the display), and then press Black or Color.
The All-In-One scans your document and sends your fax to the number you entered.
Using the All-In-One Center:
  1. Make sure your All-In-One is attached to a computer.
  2. Load up to 30 sheets of your original document face down in the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder). Note: When you load small paper sizes, place your document in the center of the tray and adjust the paper guides to the edges of the paper.
  3. From your desktop, double-click the Lexmark 4200 Series All-In-One Center icon. The All-In-One Main Page appears.
  4. Under Productivity Tools, click Fax an image or document.
  5. Follow the instructions on your screen to complete the task.

Cant send a fax


Confirm dialing the correct fax number?

Any 0s to get an outside line, any special area codes?

What happens when you try to send a fax, can you hear a dial tone? can you hear the fax ringing? can you hear a response from the recipiant?

No dial tone on my Lexmark X4270


There are two outlets in the back where you plug in your phone line. I had the same problem when I
was plugged into the far left plug (as you are facing the front of the all in one). I switched to the other
outlet and it worked fine. But still once in a while it seems to loosen up and I have to push it back in
farther. Today I got a dialtone but could not send a fax. I got a dialtone but still wouldn't send. So I
checked the outlet and sure enough, it was just loose enough to prevent the machine from registering
the fax number, but connected enough to get a dialtone.....go figure. Good luck
