Any clicking noises? Can you make a good copy? Paper seems to be dragging thru the doc feeder. Gears could be stripped, cover may not be closed tightly.

Lexmark platinum pro905 fax


If you're having problems sending faxes, make sure that the printer is connected to an active phone line. The best setup would be to connect the printer straight to a wall jack and the other end of the phone cable should be connected to the line port at the back of the printer.

If you're having receiving faxes, check the fax settings > Ringing and Answering. Check if the Auto Answer is enabled and check how many rings the fax will pick up any faxes sent to your number. If you have an answering machine connected to the same line, set the printer to pick up 3 rings higher than your fax machine. If you have a voicemail service, you'll need to get a distinctive ring feature from your phone provider.

Not receiving any incoming faxes


Is the phone line working? Do you have any devices connected to the phone line that pick up before the fax machine? Make sure the machine has paper and is set to FAX or AUTO. Is there a Memory Full error? Clear the memory (Setup > Memory Clear then press Start/Enter. Use the left and right arrows to select the items to remove. Press Start/Enter twice (second time to confirm the choice). Repeat until all memory is cleared that you wish to clear. Then press Stop to exit.)

If you are using the ANS/FAX mode and have an answering machine connected to the extension port, disconnect the anwering machine and switch to FAX or AUTO. Check if the machine receives faxes. Sometimes the extra device causes interference. Call the fax machine from a different phone number and see if you hear the fax tones.

Check that the Junk Fax barrier is off, if the incoming call is from a machine that is not listed in your speed dial database. If you have a distinctive ring, make sure that the Fax machine has learned the ring by pressing Setup go to DRPD. Choose Set and call the fax machine from another phone. The LCD will say Waiting Ring until it gets that call and then once the ring is learned will say END DRPD Setup

I hope these ideas help.

(If you have a phone company voice mail service, the faxes may end up stuck in that box. It depends on how many rings the fax is set to wait before picking up versus when the voice mail opens to take the call.)

We are having problems with our Muratex F110 fax machine. It won't send long distance faxes. the phone company says it is not on their end. any suggestions?


Well technically it's not on thier end. Let's remember that a fax uses a normal home style phone line.
So ask yourself these questions.
#1 Do I have long distance service on this phone line?
#2 If I do have long distance service do I need to do any kind of special dialing sequence to access long distance? Like a 9 or an 8 or any other number before dialing outside of your local area.
In some cases( businesses usually) a special code needs to be entered after dailling the number.
Most fax machines have a hansdset on them. Do this simple test. Lift the handset and dial a known long distance number and listen to what the operator message says. If all else fails call your phone company and ask them if this line has long distance capability.

Just got a lanier 4900 fax machine and i don't know how to hook it up no manual


Find a phone cord with plugs on both ends. Take one end and plug it into the phone outlet on the wall. Take the other end and plug it into the outlet on the rear of the fax unit that says "Line".

Hi, you can check that your phone connection from your 7420 to line works. Listen for a dial tone in a phone connected to your mfc7420. If not, your tel comm module could be at fault.

Having trouble receiving faxes, takes several times of someone sending to me to receive.


First thing to check is the condition of the phone line, if the machine has a handset make a phone call from the handset, is the line clear? Is there any static or Echos on the line?
Is the machine on a shared line with computers or an answering machine?
Call the Fax machine from a phone, is the line clear? did the machine generate its handshake burst? Did anything else try to answer the line?
Check the phone cable input, it should be going onto the LINE jack on the back of the machine.

Poor line condition


The modem in the fax is having a problem with what is called 'handshaking', meaning its not able to sync up with each other. Try another outlet if one is available or even take it to another home or business to see. The cord from the wall to the fax could be bad also, try replacing that after you try it somewhere else.
