Can't receive fax on Lexmark X6170

Hi,

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?

Thanks.

Lori

Not really...some fax machines are not happy with receiving from a computer or printer(read that digital). may take years for it to work itself out.

When i receive a fax everything is perfect,when i send a fax it reaches the destination where im sending it as a blank sheet of paper


Hi,

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.


Regards,
Ron

Can't receive faxes


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.

Faxing to a residence


It may be that your CEO's fax machine is not setup to receive correctly. Have someone check the fax receive settings. Have them set it ot fax only and automatic receive.

Receiving a fax on my Lexmark X6170


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.
