Question about Canon Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

Problem: Need Canon PC 1080F copier/fax repair manual or instructions for adjustment of the autofeed in the top section of the machine. I have a Canon PC 1080F copier fax machine. I love this machine, but . . . The auto feed no longer works. It used to feed up to 30 pages at a time. Now it will feed the first page and then mess up. The next page will get stuck inside or not feed at all. I assume this is just an adjustment of the rollers inside the swing-up top above the image glass (or possibly a cleaning of the rollers and path), but I don't know how to get to these or adjust them. I wouldn’t want to take it apart without a repair manual. I can see the rollers at the front of the feed, but they don’t appear to be dirty. I have searched for a free, downloadable repair manual on the web, but the only thing I found was a PDF one for $14.99 on Does anyone have a PDF repair manual for the Canon PC 1080F they can email me? Or can anyone describe in detail how to do this? Everything else on this machine works great. It has a little over 2,500 pages copied, and when the laser cartridge was nearing empty, I found a refill kit for it on the web. Refilling the laser cartridge worked great and saved me a lot of bucks. But the auto feed not working is a major hassle. I have to lift the top and place each page one at time on the glass, then go through this again and again for a longer document. This is driving me crazy. I already had a one-at-a-time copier, the Canon 400, and the main reason I bought this 1080F was because of the 30 pages at a time feed. (Also because of the fax capabilities. My previous fax could only do 10 pages at a time, but now I am stuck using it again. I can’t use the 1080F for faxing at all right now, unless I only want to fax one page. I am on disability and simply can’t afford a copier repair place. And I’d like to avoid having to pay $14.99 for a PDF repair manual if I possibly can. I am on an extremely low budget each month and have to watch every dollar I spend. So, to summarize, can anyone email me a PDF repair manual for the Canon PC 1080F copier fax or walk me through the process of adjusting the rollers on the autofeed on the top section of this machine? Email:

It sounds like the CIS (scanner) has failed in both machines. Its no generally not a common problem. I would change one every six months if I was lucky.

It may point to something in your environment. I have have seen rust build up on the contacts of the scanner cause this problem. So if you have high moisture or are close to the ocean this maybe a problem.

Make sure the electrical contacts where the cartridge fits into the machine aren't bent or dirty. If necessary gently pry them out a bit to make sure they have good contact.

FAX back

Do you mean to get the paper document back out of the machine? If it doesn't feed out automatically, it may need to be repaired.
If you mean that you want confirmation that a fax was sent, you can turn on the TX (Transmit) REPORT. This will print out the first page of a fax sent successfully.

1. Press the Additional Functions button.
2. Use the arrows to select FAX SETTINGS. Press the Set button.
3. Use the arrows to select REPORT SETTINGS. Press Set.
4. Use the arrows to select TX REPORT. Press Set.
5. Use the arrows to select OUTPUT YES. Press Set.
6. Press the Stop/Reset button.

The machine will automatically print an Activity Report after every 20 faxes (sent or received). If you want an Activity Report at any time:

1. Press the Function button.
2. Press Report button (number 03 on the left side of the keypad)
3. Use the arrows to select ACTIVITY REPORT.
4. Press the Set button.

Not receive

I'm not familiar with the B120, but if you have an L120 the manuals are available here. The Starter Guide will explain receive mode options and setup instructions. The Advanced Guide will provide troubleshooting guidance.

CANON PC-1080F feeder error message

Well, open the adf and see if there's anything jammed in there. While you are at it, clean all the white out off the rollers and the scan glass. Then make sure the ADF cover is snapped shut properly
