Any way to manually LOWER the Fax Connection Baud Rate?

I am having troubles sending a fax to a certain # .. when it connects to the external fax it attempts to send Page 1 but then hangs up....I am figuring i need to lower the attempted fax baud rate from its possible 14.4Kbps to something like 9600 baud....this will likely solve my problem...

Does anyone know how to do this manualyl for this printer?

Newer fax technology adjusts transmission speed automatcally, so no adjustment is necesary. therefore, there is no menu option to change it. Your problem resides either on your phone line or the one you are trying to connect to. Call the other people and ask them if thei are receiving without problem. If you are able to transmit elsewhere and the other party is receiving from everywhere, try turning off the ECM option on your unit.

I can send fax but cant receive them, i need to get settings but have lost manual.


I believe the problem you are having is because you're attempting to use a band saw to send a fax. Although I may be mistaken, I'm pretty certain that attempting to send a fax from a band saw is analogous to trying to get to the moon by using a spatula. I would recommend that you try using a fax machine to send your fax. Hope that's helpful! :)

Make sure your VoIP system has been adjusted for optimum fax transmission. VoIP doesn't do very well with fax, most providers much change the Codec to support fax (eg. t.38 )

Remote fax error when sending a fax


Does it only happen going to one certain fax destination or every destination? There are some things to try on the Lexmark web site.

Go to www.lexmark.com and click Support->Technical Support. Type in 4270 in the 'Search by Model' box. Type in 'Remote fax error' in the 'Search the Knowledgebase' box. There is a topic called 'Problems Sending a Fax to Specific Fax Machines' that has some good general tips.

Hi zoaj,

More then likely you have the fax set up to USE A DIALING PREFIX.

Therefore it is automatically doing this, regardless of what you input.

Follow the proceedure below ( which comes directly from the users manual for your printer type ) to change this. Delete the " USE A DIALING PREFIX " information.

once that is done, it will no longer automatically add the prefix for you. :)

I have BOLDED the relevant information below that pertains to this.

Please take a moment to evaluate my solution. Your appropriate rating of my solution would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Can't send out fax


the number you called does not answer or busy-you may have reached a number not connected to fax or it is connected and not activated in receiving mode-check the number and call again.
if you have a message "out of memory"there is no enough memory available to send your fax.press stop/exit print the faxes stored in the memory to delete them then try again.

Sending and receiving faxes


Do you have an analog phone line or are you trying to run it through a PBX system? I was just having this discussion with RKS tech support. Their fax software was hanging up as soon as the connection was established and all I had available was a VOIP phone line. It took 4 tries but I found a US Robotics fax/modem that worked fine in class 2.0 mode.
