Hey Tony - Did you recently hook this up to the DSL for the first time? This unit is supposedly not able to work with a DSL line.

The fax modem in your AIO is an analog device and cannot be used on an ISDN, DSL, or PBX digital phone service. However, you can connect certain devices to your AIO that let you use the fax function in addition to these digital phone services.

To connect without an unsupported line:
Connect an active telephone cable from the AIO to the telephone wall jack.

To connect with an unsupported line:
If you use an ISDN phone service, you can connect to an analog telephone port (an R-interface port) on an ISDN terminal adapter.
For more help and to request an R-interface port, contact the ISDN provider.
If you use a DSL (Digital Subscriber Line) phone service, you can connect to a DSL filter or router that will allow for some analog (rather than digital) use.
If you use a PBX phone service, you can install an analog phone line for a fax machine.

If this was working on the DSL let me know. I don't know the location but obviously a separate phone jack is the easiest. Let me know. If this helps you fix it you can rate this as fixed. If you are just going to rate this as helpful I'd rather you please not rate it and just add a comment and say thanks for the info.
If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be glad to assist you further. Thanks.

Jeff

We can't receive faxes on Lexmark X6150. It has a voice over IP phone service thru 5Linx


Hi. The problem can be caused by several factors. It can be the physical connection, the telephone line through 5Linx or the settings in the printer. Here are some tips on how to resolve the problem:
1. Check the telephone cable your using. Check for defects. Try to change the cable.
2. Make sure cable is connected in the Line port of the printer and the other end to the correct port of your 5Linx. If your not sure where to connect it to 5Linx, contact phone provider.
3. To check if the phone line is working, try to plug a telephone device in the 5linx where you're plugging the printer. Check for a dial tone. If there is, it's ok. If no dial tone, contact phone provider.
4. Voice over IP phone service uses digital signal which is not stable. The fax will have its optimum performance when plugged in to an analog signal. You can call your provider to have line adjusted to work with faxing.
5. If the telephone line comes with voicemail, disable the voicemail. It's settings might be having conflict with the printer settings.
6. Set printer transmission speed to 9600 bps. This setting can work with IP phone service.
Hope these helps. Good luck!

Lexmark x2470. Fax solutions not working after going high speed


Please check that the Phone line for faxing is connected to a seperate NON FILTERED phone line. Not to the dsl line. You can use a line splitter for this. Also the dial up modem may need to remain in your computer for the fax software to dial out. Hope this helps.

Make sure the wire from the wall is plugged into the port marked "line" and not "phone". Also try plugging a regular phone into the wall and make sure you can make and receive a call. It could be a phone line problem.
