Please explain the jack.
If it is a regular network jack, you need a RJ45 jack punched to the 586B wiring code (http://www.9thtee.com/networkingts.htm)
You can find these jacks and the tool you need to install it at places like Home Depot.
That is if it was using a regular network cable in the first place.

A network cable has 8 wires (4 pair) and computers communicate over 2 of the pair (inbound + & 0 and Outbound + & -)

If you were using some other type of connection originally, please explain what it was.

I need to connect my phone line to my printer to enable me to send faxes, how do I do this.


Refer to the printer's User's Guide on how to connect your Lexmark X5470 to your telephone line for faxing. If the printer software is already installed on your computer, you can access the printer's User's Guide by going to the Start menu -> Programs -> Lexmark 5400 Series -> User's Guide (applicable to Windows OS). If not, you can download it from the Lexmark website for free using this link: Lexmark 5400 Series All-In-One User's Guide. Scroll to page 12 for the fax setup instructions. Also, check page 71for faxing instructions (sending, receiving, etc.). Hope this helps.
If you need additional assistance, please contact Lexmark technical support. Thanks.

I'm unable to connect printer to my computer because I have misplaced the cd-rom. I've had this printer for more than 1 year. How can I get it connected? lexmark x5470


There are Lexmark X5470 drivers available for download in the Lexmark website. I recommend not to plug the Lexmark printer to your computer yet. Download the software first. Just
click on this link: http://bit.ly/aNFBAO . Click on the Microsoft or Macintosh dropdown to choose the operating system of your computer. Then download and install the software.
Follow the instructions. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

Hi,

For a Lexmark 5400 series printer, initially, pls start here. You have to specify what Windows / OS you are using. Soon as your choice has been made a new window will open, click on the DOWNLOAD NOW button.The fileswill download to your computer and normally would be saved inyour desktop. Soon as download completes, double click on the file.Follow on screen instructions. You might be better off NOT PLUGGING the printer until instructed by the installation.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Lost manual


There is no much to hook up, you hook up the RJ11 phone connector at the back of the printer to the phone line.
Install printer software onto the computer.
Then connect printer to computer using USB cable.

Lexmark 5400 series paper jam


As several previous posts said there was a pieces of paper folded up inside. Per a previous post remove the sheet feeder rack. At this point I removed the two outside screws (of the three) on the backe. After this the whole top lifts about 3/4 inch (19mm) to give your fingers more room to clear it. Looks like she will print another day.

Thanks for the tips on here.
