Receiving a fax You can choose to receive a fax automatically, manually, or through an answering machine.
Note: For your All-In-One to receive a color fax, the machine from which you are receiving must also support color faxes.
Automatically Recommended for a dedicated fax line
Your All-In-One automatically accepts incoming faxes using the automatic answering mode. When the Auto Answer light is on, the All-In-One receives a fax after the specified number of rings set in the Options menu.
To set a number of rings for the automatic answering mode:

  1. On the control panel, press Mode repeatedly until Fax is selected.
  2. Press Options until ANSWER FAX WHEN appears.
  3. Press + to choose After 1 ring, After 2 rings, After 3 rings (default), or After 5 rings.
  4. Press Select.
  5. Make sure the Auto Answer light on the All-In-One is on.
When the number of rings that you set is detected, the All-In-One automatically receives your fax.
Manually Recommended for a shared fax and telephone line
You can choose which incoming faxes to accept by setting your All-In-One to manual answering mode.
  1. Make sure the All-In-One Auto Answer light is off.
  2. Press *9* on the telephone after you answer the telephone and hear fax tones.
  3. Hang up the telephone.
The All-In-One receives your fax.
Answering machine Recommended for a shared fax and telephone line
To receive a fax with an answering machine connected to your All-In-One, set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the All-In-One does. For example, if you set the answering machine to answer calls after 3 rings, set the All-In-One to answer calls after 5 rings.
  1. On the control panel, press Mode repeatedly until Fax is selected.
  2. Press Options until ANSWER FAX WHEN appears.
  3. Press + until After 5 rings appears.
  4. Press Select.
  5. Make sure the Auto Answer light on the All-In-One is on.
When a ring is detected, the answering machine picks up the call.
  • If a fax is detected, the All-In-One receives the fax and disconnects the answering machine.
  • If not, the answering machine completes the call.
Note: You must set up the equipment as shown in connecting to an answering machine.

Hi i can't send and receive faxes. My phone


Here's the link to download the Lexmark X7170 User's Guide: http://bit.ly/c8EHEn. Go to Faxing for the instructions on how to go through the settings on the printer. For setting the printer to ring to answer at 0, set it to pickup on the 1st ring. To turn off the distinctive ring, set the ring pattern to any. Hope this helps.

My fax machine


We are having the same problem. I can hear it dial, but when the receiver fax picks up, there is no signal from the Lexmark to let the receiver know that we are sending. All we need is one stupid "BEEP"! So much for plug-and-play.
