Thank you for the information even thou it want solve my problem. The printer is making noise when it is trying to answer an incoming FAX. The panel lights blink amd information comes up on the screen. We have a wirelss internet system with COX as our sole provider. I never really use the FAX feature on the printer and we never receive FAXES. We only have one phone nujmber amd is not a FAX number. The noise the printer is making when it tries to receive a FAX is bothering my wife. All I want to do is disable the FAX function. Right now I keep the printer off until we need it and turn it back off. Thank you for the information and I will put it to use.

You can unplug the phone line, if you truly no longer need it. That's the best option.
Another way is to disable auto answer by setting the "number of rings" to answer to zero.

Thanks for the information. But, the Auto Answer light is out and Auto Answer should be turned off I guess. Plus, the printer is hooked up Wirelessly to my Home network.
