What do you mean? you cant send? or you cant receive fax?

first know if you are using a digital or analog line. if youre using digital line you need to have a micro filter and it must be connected to the fax line. if you have an answering machine it must be connected at the back of the printer(EXT-2) to make it work. then on your printer press menu and then choose fax settings
answering mode must be YES(if you have an answering machine)
rings to answer is 1 ring less than your answering machine
disable call waiting must be set to NO.

let me know what happen

How to fax


First you need to get the fax service activated with your phone company. Make sure that you do not have distinctive ringtones nor voice mail activated on your line, because these features are not compatible with the 5500 printer.

Once you got that, then you need to:
- Put what you need to fax on the ADF (automatic document feeder)
- Press the FAX button on the printer
- Dial the number (including area code)
- Press the START button

And your fax should get going.

Fax pick up


Greetings Nana, 
I believe that you can specify how many rings should occur before your Kodak 5500 Ai Printer automatically answers an incoming call (default = 4). 
If you have a dedicated fax line, set the Rings to Answer to 1 or 2.  If you have a shared line for voice/modem and fax, set the Rings to answer to 3, 4, or 5. This setting only applies if Answering Machine Mode is set to OFF.
When the Answering Machine mode is disabled, Rings to Answer applies and your AiO printer answers the call. When your AiO printer detects a fax tone, it receives the fax. When a voice call is received (no fax tone), the call is ignored.
1 Press Menu to display the main menu. 2 Press scroll down until Fax Settings is displayed. 3 Press OK to display the Adjust Fax Settings menu. 4 Press scroll down until Rings to Answer is selected. 5 Press right or left arrow to change the number of rings.
Give it a try, Nana, but let Kodak know if you need additional help. They will be there for you.

Problems to SEND a fax


I'm not sure what you mean entirely but this could help.

Usually sending faxes are only a problem if:

You have the printer set up correctly. (Phone line must be in line 1) or your phone line digital, which the product does not support unless you have a filter.

Also, if by different dial tone you mean "distinctive ring," that also is not supported by the product.

Can't fax


Fax machines will not work on digital phone lines. You need to have a seperate phone line to run one. If your office is using DSL for internet, usually they can run one off of that line with a filter installed.

My model Kodak 5500 printer/fax


Just found your post and I'm having the same problem. Everything else seems to be working correctly. I can copy, scan, print and I THINK I can send a fax correctly, I should have called the person and made sure it arrived. However, I cannot receive faxes. I have an answering machine on the line, but it is not plugged into the Kodak Pinter, it is in another room. The answering machine answered the call, the FAX noise came across, but the Kodak Printer never picked it up and printed out the fax. I think I have all the settings correct, but the instructions are not very clear. Do you think I HAVE to have the answering machine plugged into the Kodak Printer? That doesn't make sense, but I might try it.

Fax machine


I have the opposite problem, I can send but not receive! For sending, make sure your phone line is plugged into the "1-LINE" in the back of the machine, put your pages face up on the top of the machine, press the "FAX" button, type in the phone number and hit start. Maybe you've done this exactly and you have some sort of error?
