Hi there!
It is possible if the fax storage of your fax machine is on. To check if its in press Menu 2 5 1, the lcd should show fax storage. and to print the fax press Menu, 2 5 3 to print the stored fax.
If the lcd shows off when you press Menu 2 5 1 there is no way to print that fax.
Hope this helps. Rate if it works. Thanks

Memory info retrieving from lexmark x5630 fax machine


Usually, faxes are temporarily sent to the printer's memory when one of the cartridges' ink level is not substantial for printing at the instance of receiving the fax. When this happens, try to replace the cartridge(s), *without navigating away from the message "fax sent to memory", by opening the printer cover and replacing the low-ink or empty cartridge(s). After the new cartridge is installed, close the printer cover and press the OK button. Your printer should then print the fax stored in the memory.
*Make sure not to navigate away from the "fax sent to memory" message, otherwise, data will be lost.

How do i print a fax stored in lexmark x5495 if a fax is sent and does not print out, is it saved anywhere for me to retrieve


When an incoming fax is stored temporarily in the printer's memory, chances are, one of your cartridges has low ink level. To retrieve stored faxes, current state of printer must be on the instance when the fax is temporarily sent to printer's memory. Replace your low-ink cartridge without navigating away from the Fax function. Once you have replaced the cartridge, press Ok button to continue printing the fax.

Is it possible to retrieve a confirmation of a fax I sent approximately four years ago?


No, the transmission log is held for the last 50 faxes on most machines and I would imagine you have sent more than 50 faxes over the four year period. I imagine this is for some legal matter, so what you can try to do is pull your phone records from four years ago and find that number on your bill. This is equal verification that a fax was sent on the date and time you say one was sent. That is about your only option. If you do not have copies of your previous bills, contact your phone company and ask the to do a search on the number you are inquiring about and they should be able to pull your records from four years ago and provide that information to you, albeit for a fee. I hope this helps and does not come as bad news.

In case of a problem or clarification or my solution was insufficient, don't hesitate to post me a reply.

If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

I want to retrieve a fax sent to me last year


I'm afraid your printer does not have the capability of retrieving faxes sent last year.
The only time you can retrieve faxes is when you get "low ink level" notification while a fax is coming in, where the incoming fax is temporarily stored in the printer's memory. You'll be asked to replace the low ink cartridge (without navigating away from the fax function) then hit Ok to receive the incoming fax. Other than that, you won't be able to retrieve previous faxes.

Retrieval of fax from memory


No. And even if you could, it would simply list the # the fax was received from, and the # of pages. The actual fax is not retained.
