Okay for starters, you need to check to see if that fax machine is automatically answering the phone when it rings. you can check to see if it is trying to recieve by call that phone number from another phone and listen if it answers and when it does, does it make a high pitched squelling sound that varies in pitch.
if it does then it should be working ok, if not then you must program your recieve mode to automatically answer.
you can also check to see if it's sending by doing the opposite: put a sheet of paper in the machine to fax and dial your cell phone or other number, when it rings pick it up and listen for the high pitch squeel, if it works then your fax is working properly.

Thank You,

Mikey

How do you get the fax machine to work?


First, make sure that the printer is connected to an active phone line. The best setup would be to connect the printer straight to a wall jack and the other end of the phone cable should be connected to the line port at the back of the printer.



For receiving faxes, check the fax settings > Ringing and Answering. Check if the Auto Answer is enabled and check how many rings the fax will pick up any faxes sent to your number. If you have an answering machine connected to the same line, set the printer to pick up 3 rings higher than your answering machine. If you have a voicemail service, you'll need to get a distinctive ring feature from your phone provider.

We have a lexmark x945e with the Pharos beta bundle installed and while the printer is conected to the network it keeps on printing the same work over and over again, and if we try to cancel the job it...


Do any of the printers have a print driver installed other than a lexmark print driver? For example, if they have a HP driver installed and that HP Driver has the IP address of the new lexmark printer then that could be the reason it is printing random pages.

Can you receive phone call on the same line when using the lexmark #8350


Yes make sure your machine is set to MANUAL RECEIVE. You will then have to push the start button to receive a fax.

Just bought lexmark 5600-6000 series want pick up on rings to receieve faxes


Are you asking how to set the printer for the number of rings to wait before answering the incoming call? Please go to the Fax menu on the printer and set the number there. Or use the Lexmark Utility that came on the installation CD. Don

Recieving faxes
  • Plug a regular, non-digital, phone into the fax's phone line and see if you get a dial tone
    • If you do not have a dial tone, seek support from your telephone service provider
  • Dial the fax number from a phone    
    • Normal circumstance is that you will have the fax machine pick up and make high-pitched noises
    • If the fax does not pick up, put a regular phone on the fax line and see if the regular phone rings when dialed
      • If the phone rings, answer it and see if there is line noise
        • If the line is clear, call the service number listed on your fax
        • If the line is staticy or unclear, call your telephone service provider
      • If the phone does not ring, call your telephone service provider
Sending faxes
  • Attempt to dial the fax number you are trying to send to from another phone.
    • If you hear electronic noises on the line, the other end has a fax machine on the other end
      • Check to see if you can recieve faxes.
    • If the remote fax does not answer, the problem is on the remote side, contact the recipient
