I send and receive every week, but occasionally, I get a company that says, "the fax won't go through". I have not disconnected anything. I received a fax last week from someone else, and faxed out this morning. This is an insurance company that is trying to fax me. Could it have something to do with their baud rate? This line is shared with my phone. Do I need a dedicated line in order for this to work?

Please follow these steps to run a report on your Lexmark X6170. From the printer operator panel, press Fax to enter Fax mode > press Options repeatedly until Print Reports is highlighted. From there you can print an activity report, send log, receive log and fax settings list. I hope this helps.
If you are able to receive fax and it is printed out fine, there is nothing wrong with your printer. If the other person is receiving blank fax, you may be placing the documents to fax in opposite way, If you are placing the paper upside ( with text ), try to face it down and fax. It should work.

Hello. Make sure you're plugging the printer to the correct phone jack in the wall. If you're using a splitter, bypass it. Check the settings in the printer. Make sure you assigned the correct Fax number in it and place your Fax name as well. If you're sharing your home phone line with the fax and you have an answering machine, set it to answer first and the Lexmark fax later with a minimum of 2-ring gap. If you have a voicemail, turn it off since it will a conflict with the fax or avail a distinctive ring feature from your phone company so it can work with the fax. Hope this helps.
for these companies, try disconnecting the phone tremporarily to see if thsi is interferring just with these particular faxes. Sometimes if a company's fax is set to phone/fax, it may be trying to call you first beacuse ths would be the default settings. If it detects no phone it may by default accept your fax no problems. Hope this helps.
