Make sure that the line has dial tone. Use an ordinary phone to test the cable for dial tone. On your fax machine, plug the phone cable into "line".

Which port does the phone line plug in for fax capability


There are usually two telephone jacks on the rear - one is marked LINE and the other is PHONE or EXT. The phone line from the wall should go into the jack marked LINE. If you want to attach a handset as well, or pass-thru for regular calls, hook the phone to the PHONE or EXT jack.

On the Fax part of the printer do I hook up a telephone line to line in port and Ext out phone port or just line in port to make the Fax work


You would connect the phone line to the LINE connection on the Printer/Fax.

The EXT OUT port would be where you would connect a telephone that uses the same line - for example on a desk nearby, etc.

Fax will not work--no dial tone--copier works ok/phone line is ok


Make sure your phone line for the fax is correctly plugged into the Line Port of the printer and not the EXT port. For a more comprehensive guide on how to setup the Lexmark X4270 for faxing, please refer to the Lexmark X4200 Series User's Guide.
The user's guide also contains some fax troubleshooting steps for your reference.
If you still need assistance, please contact Lexmark Technical Support Center.

No dial tone. Can not fax or receive faxes. Tried several phone lines and wires.


two things to check first, make sure the phone cord goes into the unit where it says line and not ext. The second thing to check, plug a regular phone using the same cord and see if you have a dial tone, maybe you really dont. if you need to dial an ext. # first to get a dial tone, you need to program that in.

if all that does not solve the problem, you mostly like have a bad fax board in the unit.

No dial tone pressing hook, NG and Poor line condition transmission report on sending and receiving. Confirmed good dial tone on line in and on phone on ext. Copy, display, everything else fine. I hear...


Hello,

Make sure that you have your telephone line from the wall jack plugged into the port on the fax that says "LINE" and that your telephone is plugged into EXT.

All your cables and jacks seem like they are working since your phone gets a dial tone, the onyl thing could be that the wires are mixed or the modem on the fax is broken.

Thanks,

Pat

Does not recognize phone connection --can not send fax or receive fax--no connection. phone line is direct--works good


Hi. Here are some things you need to check: 1. Check the physical connection. Make sure the phone cable you're using is still in good condition. No obvious defects. 2. There are two phone ports behind the printer- Ext and Line. The phone jack from the wall should be plugged in to the Line port of the printer and not in the Ext. port. 3. Make sure to enter your Fax name and the correct Fax number in the printer. These are the basics on how to setup the printer for faxing. Hope these helps.

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.

The "LINE" port plugs into the wall socket.
The "EXT" port can have an analogue handset plugged into it.
