You might want to check the User's Guide for your printer. To access it, on your computer, click on Start > All Programs > Lexmark > Pro200 Series > User's Guide. Go to page 62 to know how to setup your printer to fax.

If your fax is already setup - meaning you're already able to send faxes but not able to receive. Make sure that the Auto Answer is on. To check that, on the control panel of your printer, press on Setup > Fax Setup > Auto Answer.

If you have an answering machine, make sure that your fax will pick up 3 rings higher that your answering machine. If you answering machine picks up on the 5th ring, set your fax to pick up on the 8th ring. You can change that under fax setup.

If you have a voice mail service enabled in your phone, you'll need a distinctive ring feature for your fax to work if it's being shared on the same line.

S405 printer won't communicate with computer when trying to print


First, make sure that the firmware of your printer is up to date. Just go to http://bit.ly/ghfW8H to download the firmware update.

If the firmware update doesn't help, try to uninstall the Lexmark driver and download an updated driver online at http://bit.ly/rtOKTx. Just choose the Operating System of your computer.

Also, if your printer is connected to your network, try to set a static IP to your printer to prevent it from getting a different IP.

Do I need black cartridge to fax


Generally you don't need ink to fax. Like sending a email that the receiver needs to print. However some printers will lock up and nag about cartridge empty before they let you move a inch

S405


If you're using a genuine Lexmark cartridge, try to reseat the cartridge and unplug the power of the printer for about 30 seconds.

If you're using a remanufactured/refilled cartridge, it will not detect the ink levels and might damage the printhead.

I can not get s405 lexmark to receive fax on mac


Although you can send faxes from your computer, I regret to inform you that the S405 printer software does not have the option to pick up faxes. For the receiving option, you can only configure the fax receive settings using the printer software.
I'm sorry if did not have the answer you expected.

I can't get the fax to work on S405 all in one - did work but now has decided not to but I haven't changed anything!!


Please try this approach:
  1. Try to resend the fax. There may have been a problem with the quality of the connection.
  2. Decrease the transmission speed of your fax modem. Press Setup button > Fax Setup > Dialing and Sending > Max Send Speed > 9600. Resend the fax.
  3. Re-register your user information - fax name and fax number. Some fax machines block faxes without sender information. Press Setup button > Fax Setup > Dialing and Sending > Your Fax Name (re-enter your fax name). Follow the same steps and go to Your Fax Number - re-enter your fax number. Resend the fax.
I hope this helps.
