We can't receive a fax!!! how are we supose to connect with a phne line and the computer???

You don't need to have a computer plugged in to the Lexmark printer to receive faxes. Here's an article on How to Configure the Lexmark X7170 to Receive Faxes. Just click on this link: If you are sharing your home phone line with the fax and you have an answering machine on the same line, make sure to configure the answering machine to pick up first then the fax machine. Voicemail feature can also block incoming faxes. Once voicemail picks up the fax, signal won't be passed on to the printer. But if you want, you can also contact Lexmark technical support to further investigate the problem.

My lexmark x4270 can't receive or send faxes. keep saying fail to connect, try again. please help.

Hi have you tried installing the most up to date drivers recently because they do change and if so sometimes there are seperate drivers for a lexmark. Also due to it being faxes make sure your firewall or anti virus aint getting in the way of it try disconnecting it for a brief moment then try sending if it works then go through your protection settings and so on

Hope this helps

I cannot receive faxes on my Lexmark 7350 All-in-One. I can send them Fine

hello there, Try Connecting the Lexmark All-in-One directly to the phone port...but make sure that 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.)

If this does not work then do get back for any further help.

We cannot receive faxes. The machines tries to connect but fails due to a transmission problem

you should disconnect the phone line and the power to the fax , they will lock up sometimes and need what is called a cold reset , otherwise there may be a problem with the filter or the fax itself
