How can I send and receive a fax from Lexmark x4270.?


You can send faxes via the operator panel, the All-In-One Center, or the fax driver.
Using the Operator Panel:
  1. Make sure your All-In-One is switched on.
  2. Load up to 30 sheets of your original document face down in the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder). Note: When you load small paper sizes, place your document in the center of the tray and adjust the paper guides to the edges of the paper.
  3. On the operator panel, press Fax.
Using the keypad you can:
  • Enter the fax number, and then press Black or Color.
  • Press Speed Dial, and then:
- Use the arrow keys to scroll through the list to find the number you want, and then press Black or Color. - Use the keypad to enter a two-digit number (viewable in the upper left of the display), and then press Black or Color.
The All-In-One scans your document and sends your fax to the number you entered.
Using the All-In-One Center:
  1. Make sure your All-In-One is attached to a computer.
  2. Load up to 30 sheets of your original document face down in the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder). Note: When you load small paper sizes, place your document in the center of the tray and adjust the paper guides to the edges of the paper.
  3. From your desktop, double-click the Lexmark 4200 Series All-In-One Center icon. The All-In-One Main Page appears.
  4. Under Productivity Tools, click Fax an image or document.
  5. Follow the instructions on your screen to complete the task.

For a more comprehensive guide on how to send and receive faxes using your Lexmark X4270 printer, please refer to the Lexmark X4270 User's Guide.

When I make copies or transmit a fax, it makes a 3/4" black line down the left side. I have cleaned ink cartridges and contacts but does not help.


The line is probably not from the ink cartridges or nozzles (assuming regular printing doesn't streak). Streaks on copies and transmitted faxes are usually due to dirt or problems on the scanner unit. First clean the flat bed of the scanne. If you have an automatic document feeder, clean that.

Clean with a lint free cloth moistened with a little water or glass cleaner. Make sure no foreign objects are in the ADF path or on the glass. For pictures see the Lexmark support site: http://support.lexmark.com/index?page=product&linkSelected=node0&locale=EN&userlocale=EN_US#1. Then enter "streak on copy" - the solution comes up in a pop up.

If the streak is shrinking, then copy a blank white piece of paper to identify where to clean further. Try scanning another page with a small mark on it. (These are particularly helpful for cleaning the ADF.)

If the mark occurs when you print, then check if you have a damaged cartridge or other ink that has spilled inside the printer.

I hope this helps.

It could be due to some dirt on the scan lens on the printer. Refer to this article on How to Clean the Scan Lens and White Roller on the Lexmark X4250/ X4270/ F4270. I hope this helps.

Outgoing faxes and copies have black lines down middle of page


This usually happens when the Roll of paper is running out.
If this machine uses sheet paper and not a roll, you may have dirt, a scrap of paper, or something else on the print head.
Check the manual for instruction on cleaning

I have a lexmark all-in-one printer, model # x4270, when I fax someone, when received, the fax is a blank sheet of paper?


try and make a copy with the fax... if it comes out the same way... turn the paper face up if it was face down or vice versa and try again... if it works then fax the same way and see what happens... if all goes well then keep copying and faxing that way... if that works but fax does not work... print an internal report... if that does not print then you have main board problems... if internal prints print then you have a problem with your ccd... thats a big long strip that rests right under the keyboard... thats what does the scanning... if that is bad... then when you fax... or copy it will be blank or black... depending on what is blown on it...

Try cleaning the rollers in X4270 printer. You may need to clean the scan lens and the white roller.

Open the control panel.
