    My printer plugs straight into a power strip.
    What do you mean by a fax name being assigned to the
    printer,I have Lexmark 6100 series as my default
    printer,is there another name that should be assigned.

    Are you getting any particular error message when you're trying to send a fax? Make sure that a Fax Name is assigned in the printer. In some cases, faxes won't go through without contact information. Who provides your telephone service? Is the printer plugged in straight to the phone jack in the wall or does it plug in to a splitter/filter/modem/router?

Unplug, wait a minute, plug back in, should reset.
go to applications folder on your system, dbl click icon for Lexmark icon to open settings.in page to send fax, go through all tabs to insure you can send out. might have a tab that you haven't selected?
good luck

    Ans: does the phone line go from the wall to the printer directly and not into a router through the power strip?


    In print settings, you select printer or fax; is the fax selected?

I am trying to fax on the 6170 do the sheets face up or down?


If you are sending fax using the scanner bed, your original document should be placed face down. However, if you are sending faxes using the automatic document feeder, original document should face up.

I have a (time Warner) package deal that consist of cable vision internet telephone & voicemail. I am trying to get the fax machine to work along with these items. My voice mail picks up on the 5th...


Here's the link to download the Lexmark X4270 User's Guide: http://bit.ly/cNbUKo. If you prefer to have the printer pick up faxes automatically, I suggest you configure the printer to pickup after the 2nd or 3rd ring before your voicemail picks it up. On the User's Guide, go to Faxing, Receiving a Fax for the instructions. For more info about the printer, go through the User's Guide. Hope this helps.

Lexmark X-6170 instalation to my desktop comp.


There are Lexmark X6170 drivers available for download in the Lexmark website. Just click on this link: http://bit.ly/b0XDka. Printer only works with Windows operating system. No drivers for Macintosh unfortunately. Choose the correct driver compatible with the version of your computer's operating system. Download and install the software. Hope this helps but if you need more assistance, just leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

Faxing to a residence


It may be that your CEO's fax machine is not setup to receive correctly. Have someone check the fax receive settings. Have them set it ot fax only and automatic receive.
