Hi i can't send and receive faxes. My phone


Here's the link to download the Lexmark X7170 User's Guide: http://bit.ly/c8EHEn. Go to Faxing for the instructions on how to go through the settings on the printer. For setting the printer to ring to answer at 0, set it to pickup on the 1st ring. To turn off the distinctive ring, set the ring pattern to any. Hope this helps.

Can't receive faxes from my fax machine. I can send out faxes but can't recieve any faxes in. I was told that My fax machine did not ring when someone was trying to send me a fax. They could dail my number...


Go to settings and enable Rx.

The fax machine doesn't
receive documents
automatically.


Make sure that the reception mode is set to
FAX. If you subscribe to a distinctive ring
service, make sure that the Distinctive Ring
function is set to the correct ring pattern. If you
do not subscribe to a distinctive ring service,
make sure that Distinctive Ring is set to OFF
SETTING. (See
Distinctive Ring
in Chapter 7.

This machine can also block faxes from certain numbers if you wish. Your manual is here;

Can't receive fax. MP530is set on DRPD. Phone


DR is for distinctive ring, do you actually have distinctive ring from your phone company? Have you set the matching pattern into the Canon? It will only answer when it is sent the proper ring, unless you turn off distinctive ring.

How to set fax machine so it can accept after 2 rings?


Distinctive Ring basicsDistinctive Ring service is an optional service available from many telephone companies. The Distinctive Ring service permits you to assign more than one telephone number to the same telephone line. Distinctive Ring allows you to use a single phone line for both voice and fax calls. You can assign a unique phone number and ring pattern for incoming fax calls. When a fax comes in, each telephone number makes a distinctive ringing sound, such as a single ring, double ring, or triple ring.
NOTE: The Distinctive Ring Service is the name HP and others use to describe this feature. Distinctive Ring is also known as:
  • Call Sign
  • Custom Ring
  • Ident-a-Call
  • Ident-a-Ring
  • Ident-a-Ring
  • Multi Ring
  • Personalized Ringing
  • Ringmaster
  • Smart Ring
  • Teen-Ring
The Distinctive Ring Service allows the HP product to work similarly to a dedicated fax line. If you connect an HP fax product and a telephone to one telephone line, you can assign one telephone number for fax calls and another for voice calls.
NOTE: You cannot send or receive faxes when the phone line is in use. Even if the HP fax product has a separate telephone number, it is still sharing the same phone line. Set the Distinctive Ring Service Using the menus on the product control panel, follow these steps to set a distinctive ring pattern. Step one: Turn on Auto Answer Turn on Auto Answer by pressing the Auto Answer button on the control panel. The button light indicates when Auto Answer is on.If the button light is already on, you do not need to press the button.

I'm looking for a fax machine that will share a single phone line, so that incoming calls are routed to the phone and incoming faxes are routed to the fax machine. Is this a built in feature?


I don't really know of a fax machine that will do this automaticly. But you have hope at electronics stores or computer stores they sell a spiltter just for this use. All you do to hook it up is there is one spot to plug in the incoming phone line, then at the other end or side depending on type you buy. You'll have one output to fax and one to your telephone. You can fax or receive faxes and make calls. The splitter seperates the uincoming calls as to faxs or calls and sends them to the correct output.

Change fax to recognize distinctive ring. Officejet V 40


Hi devoncarl2,

I'm not exactly sure what your asking. I'm going to assume that you want to know how to turn on your distinctive ring function for your fax/telephone. On most models of all-in-ones or stand alone, there is a setup function button on the unit itself. It will scroll through various options for different functions. Scroll until you see something about incoming calls or "distinctive ring" or phone/fax setup. It is here you will have the opportunity to select the distinctive ring your local phones service offers i.e. 3 long 2short or 2long 2short etc.. I hope this helped a little, if not, hit me back, we have other options.

Thank you for using FixYa.com

Sincerely, cyyyd7

Audible ring has changed/machine won't answer when called


It is to do with "smart ring" feature or in your area called "distinctive ring" feature. The machine won't receive unless the ring pattern matches your distinctive ring pattern. If you are not using that feature, then you must turn the feature off. Then set your receive mode to "fax tel" mode if it is your only line.
