Check that the phone cord is plugged into the LINE port (not External) on the printer, then the telephone line plug in the back of the phone. If you have more than one line on the phone but currently have only one phone number, be sure the telephone cord is plugged into line 1.

Try contacting your telephone service provider asking is your line is allowed to fax .becoz some service providers block the fax line if it hasn't been using the fax for a long period of time.

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.

MY X5650 WILL SEND FAXES BUT NOT RECIEVE THEM


Are you sharing your home phone line with your fax? If so, do you have a voicemail or an answering machine connected in the same line?

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.

Ensure that the telephone/fax line is plugged into the Line port on the back of Lexmark printer and not in the Phone port.

I'm trying to send a fax and it says phone not connected. It appears connected, says there is a modem. What am I doing wrong? How can I fix this problem to send a fax?


Make sure the fax line coming out from the phone jack in the wall is plugged into the Line port on the back of the printer and not in the Phone port.
Try to use a different telephone cable to determine it's not a faulty cable issue.
You may also contact your phone company to verify if fax line is working.

Lexmark X5650 says faxes in memory. Already went to another mode. How do I get faxes out of memory?


Once you navigate away from the fax mode when a fax message goes into memory, you will lose the message. If this happens again, try not to navigate away from the fax mode. The "fax in memory" message usually pops up when the printer's not able to continue printing the fax due to a very low ink level. Just open the printer (w/o navigating away from the fax mode) > replace the ink cartridges > close the cover > print the fax.

How do you load a lexmark X5650 all in one printer, copy, photo, scan, and fax? I am trying to figure out how to load the fax to send the fax to someone.


Sending a fax using the printer control panel:
  1. Make sure the printer is on and is connected to a working phone line.
  2. Load an original document faceup into the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) or facedown on the
    scanner glass.
  3. From the printer control panel, press the Fax button.
  4. Enter a fax number, or press Address Book to select a number from the Speed Dial or Group Dial list.
  5. Press Color or Black to select a color or black-and-white fax.
  6. Press Start to send the fax job.

How do I change baud rate on Lexmark X5650 in


Just to set your expectation, MagicJack phone service may work but Lexmark does not recommend the printer to be connected to a digital phone signal (e.g. MagicJack, Vonage, etc.) since there are lots of jitter and packet loss in the transmission signal resulting to fax failures. The Lexmark fax machine will have its optimum performance when connected to an analog signal(regular telephone line). But here's how to configure the printer's baud rate. From the Control Panel, press Settings(wrench icon)> Fax Setup, hit Ok > Dialing and Sending, hit Ok > Max Send Speed, hit Ok > set down the speed to 9600 bps. Hope this helps. If you need more assistance, leave a comment and I'll get back to it. Thanks.

Problems sending and receiving faxes.


  1. Open Lexmak Productiviti studio - 5600 - 6000 Series ( icon on Desktop)
  2. Open Setup and manage faxes link ( left bottom corner)
  3. On Ringing and Answering card look at the Manual Answer Code ( if some nuber inside delete it, it should be blank)
  4. On Dialing and sending card look at the Dial method (if you have a tone phone select Touch - tone, and if you have pulse phone select Pulse)
The diference betwen Touche Tone and Pulse is that Tone when you press nuber hear tone (like on cell phone), and Pulse when you dial nuber hear serie of short pulses (like when you dial nuber 5 you hear 5 short pulses like tttttt)
