My Lexmark Interpret S405 fax?copy machine picks up incoming call from cell phone as fax. it goes onto fax automatically after 2 rings..


It seems that you're sharing your home phone line with your Lexmark fax machine. You can adjust the "pick-up" ring from the printer operator panel by pressing the Setup button > Fax Setup > Ringing and Answering > Pick Up On > select your preferred number of rings before the fax answers.
Please note:
If you have an answering machine connected to the same line as the fax, set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the printer does. Increase the number of rings by a factor of 3 over the answering machine. For example, if the answering machine is set to pick up on 4 rings, set the printer to pick up on 7 rings.

If you have a voicemail feature in the same line as the fax, you may subscribe from your phone service provider for a distinctive ring pattern feature. You can program your printer to have a distinctive ring pattern and phone number for incoming faxes.

Should you still need assistance, please leave a comment to my response and I'll get back to you. Should this resolves your problem, your rating will be greatly appreciated.

Can't receive fax. MP530is set on DRPD. Phone


DR is for distinctive ring, do you actually have distinctive ring from your phone company? Have you set the matching pattern into the Canon? It will only answer when it is sent the proper ring, unless you turn off distinctive ring.

Fax feature


You have to set the printer to pickup 2 rings higher than your answering machine. If the answering machine picks up on 4 the printer should pick up on 6.

I believe the menu should be Setup button - down arrow key until you see basic fax setup and press ok - down arrow key until you see rings to answer and press ok - change to 2 higher than answering machine.

Now you should receive faxes and calls!

The fax picks up every call


Most fax machines are set-up to pick up all calls. There isn't a way to know you are receiving a voice call until the fax picks up and doesn't hear the tracer signal that kills our human ears.

You could change the number of rings it takes the fax machine to pickup the call. If you set it to the max, you would have plenty of time to pick-up. this option is normally part of the settings on the machine itself.

The only other options are to unplug the fax when you aren't expecting to receive a message, or get a dedicated fax line. It depends on how much you use the fax.

Hope this helps! Please don't forget to rate the answer!

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.

Sending Faxes


When the last page of your document has been sent successfully, the machine beeps and returns to Standby mode. When something goes wrong while sending your fax, an error message appears on the display. If you receive an error message, press Stop/Clear to clear the message and try to send the document again. You can set your machine to print a confirmation report automatically each time sending a fax is completed. If you get the error message write it down it should always supply an error message if the fax did not go through.
