Check settings first....is auto-answer on....rings to answer set at 1 or 2...make sure receive faxes to memory is not turned on...what you could do is restore all settings to factory defaults. This can be found in the menus. If none of this works...replace the fax modem.

Want receive a fax


To receive a fax, first check to see if your telephone line has the capacity to send and receive faxes, a "conventional modem" sometimes is necessary, that may have changed with VOIP . Make sure to configure printer for faxing and that the Fax icon appears in the Printer/Fax window.. Follow all the basic set up steps to configure Fax, making sure all options are set correctly to enable where required. You might call your local phone company and ask them what you need to hook up a fax capable printer...or ask the manufacturer for the specifics of configuration for faxing.

Cannot receive faxes on Canon Pixma MX870, but can send faxes


I was searching for an answer to this to make sure my new MX870 is correctly set to receive faxes. Here's one answer I came across:

First set Tel-Priority, turn off incoming ring, turn on manual/auto switch, then check how many seconds it takes for your answering machine to come on, and set it a couple of seconds after that. This should do the trick.

Can't send or receive faxes ADSL


If you want to use the FAX - use the dedicated line to the FAX Machine..

Hi check the following steps
Problems with sending and receiving FAX

Check the TELEPHONE LINE

Make sure that you have plugged the phone cord directly and securely into the wall jack and into the back port of the fax product. The fax port on your product is marked "Line," "To Wall Jack," or with a wall jack symbol.

Check LIU

Make sure the Line Interface Unit (box that the phone cord plugs into) is fully seated into the back of the fax product.

Remove the SPLITTER

Remove any other devices from the line such as splitters, credit card machines, or telephone answering machines.


Can try sending the Fax on Another Line


CHECK WITH DIFFERENT CABLE
Try using a different telephone cord.

Just wondering on how to set up so u can get faxes from all area codes not just one


You will automatically receive faxes from anyone with a compatible fax anywhere in the world. You may be confusing receiving as you had to enter your area code in setup to send faxes. That does not keep you from receiving (or sending) anywhere you like.

Not receiving any faxes but sending


Note: check your equipment for:
Fax machine must be connected to an answer machine

Receiving a fax automatically:
1 Make sure the Fax Auto Answer light is on.
2 To set the number of telephone rings before the printer automatically receives faxes,
Receiving a fax with an answering machine
When a telephone ring is detected, the answering machine picks up the call.
If the printer detects a fax, it receives the fax and disconnects the answering machine.
If the printer does not detect a fax, the answering machine receives the call.
2 Set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the printer does.
For example, if you set the answering machine to answer calls after three rings, set the printer to answer calls
after five rings.
3 To set the number of telephone rings before the printer automatically receives faxes.

Can not receive faxes


in your imaging studio open receive fax and check your settings. make sure it is set to receive. set to auto receive or you have to answer it manually. also remember that to receive a fax the software must be open.
this next is to make sure no software problem in communication.
check ( i'll assume xp) printers and faxes in control panel. right click fax. open properties and go to devices tab click properties. in the receive tab make sure receive fax is checked and your other setting are the same as in imaging studio.
hope this helps.

Before you begin


To pinpoint the cause of the issue, please record answers to the following questions:

Can a fax be sent or received?
Can a fax be sent, but not received?
Has the fax function ever worked in the past?

Any error messages may also help to narrow down the cause of the issues.

Print out the following:

- a settings list to view the current fax settings
- a receive log if there are issues receiving faxes
- a send log if there are issues sending faxes
- an activity log if faxes cannot be sent or received.
Initial checks
If the fax option has worked in the past and does not do so now, check that the same connection is being used and that it still works.
Check to see if any configuration settings have been changed that could have affected the fax settings.

Faxes cannot be sent/received:
If you are using a digital line, you need an analog card, an ISDN adapter, or an ADSL filter in order to send faxes.
If a PBX is being used, an ISDN Adapter/ADSL filter will not be used as these are supplied within the system. (A PBX is normally used within a company to share a small number of public lines among a large number of private ones to save on cost.) For instructions on configuring the X6100 Series machine with a PBX, see How and When to Use the PBX Option.
Check the phone line (without the printer):
Test the line by connecting a phone directly into the phone port.
Check for a dialing tone.
If you cannot hear a dialing tone, try another phone cable. Once you can hear a dialing tone, you know that the phone port is live and working.
Make sure the RJ11 cable is not damaged.
Check that the printer is accessing the dialing tone correctly:
Press the Options button on the operator panel five times until ON HOOK DIAL is displayed.
Press Select. You should hear a dialing tone.
If you can't hear a dial tone, make sure that the speaker volume is set to High. (Go to Fax, press Options eight times until SPEAKER VOLUME is displayed, then use the plus or minus buttons to change the setting to HIGH. Press Select.)
If there is still no dial tone, unplug the power cable and the phone lead, then plug them back in and try again.

Faxes can be sent but not received:
Connect the Lexmark All-in-One directly to the phone port. IMPORTANT: Do NOT connect any phones to the EXT port.
Make sure the Fax receive mode is set to answer the fax after 3 rings. (Press the Fax button on the operator panel and then press Options three times until ANSWER FAX WHEN is displayed. Change the settings using the - or + buttons as appropriate.)

Faxes can be received but not sent:
Make sure that Country Code is set correctly:
Press the Fax button on the operator panel and then press Options 15 times until Advanced is displayed.
Press Select.
Press Options 13 times and then press the + or - button until the right country is displayed.
Press Select.

IMPORTANT! These tests must be carried out with NO EXTENSIONS, i.e. phones or answering machines, connected to the EXT port on the All-In-One.
