How can I send and receive a fax from Lexmark x4270.?


You can send faxes via the operator panel, the All-In-One Center, or the fax driver.
Using the Operator Panel:
  1. Make sure your All-In-One is switched on.
  2. Load up to 30 sheets of your original document face down in the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder). Note: When you load small paper sizes, place your document in the center of the tray and adjust the paper guides to the edges of the paper.
  3. On the operator panel, press Fax.
Using the keypad you can:
  • Enter the fax number, and then press Black or Color.
  • Press Speed Dial, and then:
- Use the arrow keys to scroll through the list to find the number you want, and then press Black or Color. - Use the keypad to enter a two-digit number (viewable in the upper left of the display), and then press Black or Color.
The All-In-One scans your document and sends your fax to the number you entered.
Using the All-In-One Center:
  1. Make sure your All-In-One is attached to a computer.
  2. Load up to 30 sheets of your original document face down in the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder). Note: When you load small paper sizes, place your document in the center of the tray and adjust the paper guides to the edges of the paper.
  3. From your desktop, double-click the Lexmark 4200 Series All-In-One Center icon. The All-In-One Main Page appears.
  4. Under Productivity Tools, click Fax an image or document.
  5. Follow the instructions on your screen to complete the task.

For a more comprehensive guide on how to send and receive faxes using your Lexmark X4270 printer, please refer to the Lexmark X4270 User's Guide.

4215 all in one office yet. When making a copy


Sounds like you're having a problem with the automatic document feeder. The scanner is continuing to scan but the paper is not advancing as it should during the first part of the infeed. Check to see if something is inside retarding the path of the scanned document. Or it could be worn rollers in the ADF.

When I make copies or transmit a fax, it makes a 3/4" black line down the left side. I have cleaned ink cartridges and contacts but does not help.


The line is probably not from the ink cartridges or nozzles (assuming regular printing doesn't streak). Streaks on copies and transmitted faxes are usually due to dirt or problems on the scanner unit. First clean the flat bed of the scanne. If you have an automatic document feeder, clean that.

Clean with a lint free cloth moistened with a little water or glass cleaner. Make sure no foreign objects are in the ADF path or on the glass. For pictures see the Lexmark support site: http://support.lexmark.com/index?page=product&linkSelected=node0&locale=EN&userlocale=EN_US#1. Then enter "streak on copy" - the solution comes up in a pop up.

If the streak is shrinking, then copy a blank white piece of paper to identify where to clean further. Try scanning another page with a small mark on it. (These are particularly helpful for cleaning the ADF.)

If the mark occurs when you print, then check if you have a damaged cartridge or other ink that has spilled inside the printer.

I hope this helps.

I have a lexmark x364dn. It has a line through the copies I make. I can print and scan and it is fine. The line is just on copies


Assuming the COPY uses a automatic document feeder. The doc feeder scans doc by passing doc over a narrow window. If there is a dot or several dots in the narrow window, it / they will show up on copies as a line.
Clean the window (looks like a long glass window about 1 inch wide ) carefully with a SLIGHTLY damp towel. Should get rid of the lines.

Lines of copies utilizing automatic feeder


look to the side of your big glass and you'll see a piece of glass about 1.5" wide. thats the galss that is used for scanning from the feeder. theres got to be something on that glass. possibly white-out or even a small speck of toner can cause that. look closely.

Black streaks are appearing on printed page when scanning


Do the lines only show up if you use the document feeder? If so, there is something on the strip of glass where the page is scanned. Open the top to reveal the large glass area. Then open the part where the paper feeds in when using the document feeder. It will flip open from right to left. There are two pieces to this, so make sure you grasp it as low as possible. You should see a small strip of glass. Clean all the glass with a SOFT cloth. Don't spray any cleaner onto the glass, rather, spray it onto the cloth if you need any.

Good luck!
