What will be the reason for canon sensys fax-L 150 coping dark page but faxing and printing is ok.


First things first. Try and print report from the fax. Any kind of report. If it is printing OK, then the next step is to check if:

Your clients receive your faxes OK? If they are dark as well, then your scanner head is at fault.

When you make Copy on your fax and it prints dark it could be simply set with dark settings _or_because of the white calibration strip or roller being soiled or dirty, which acts as the ultimate white reference point for scanner _or_ the Scanner CCD sensor is in paper jam release position (too far away from reading the originals) just pull it back to normal feed position.

Or simply faulty scanner.

How do I get my canon mx420 to not fax too dark. receiver gets very dark faxes sometimes unreadable.


You can change the scanning density under the user settings to lighten the picture. Or you can also call in for a service company to come clean the machine. Sometimes dust can darken an image when it's scanned.

Pages are printing, but part of the page has really light, some unreadable printing while rest of page is fine. What do I need to do/change?


If the colors on printed and copied documents are too light, blurry or not as bright as expected follow the steps listed below:
1. Verify the toner save mode is turned Off. When you set the toner save feature to On, print appears lighter.
a. Press Menu, 1 (General Setup), 6 (Ecology), 1 (Toner Save).
b. Press the up or down arrow key to select OFF and then press OK.
c. Press Stop/Exit.
2. Print a document from your computer or print a demo page by pressingthe FAX and COPY keys at the same time.

What does COM-E mean when we try to send fax's and the transmissions has this written on it instead of OK.


It means "Communication Error".
The result might be twofold:
- the fax didn't reach it's destination because of communications error (any kind)
- the fax did reach it's destination, but part of it may be unreadable or distorted, or some pages of a multi-page fax did not go through.
In many cases, what the device perceives as an erroneous transmission, is perfectly readable by a human. Therefore it's good to call the recipient and ask if the fax is readable and if all the pages were received.

The receiver states that our faxes that we send are unreadable down the right side of the paper--white or dark streak. The faxes we receive are ok


The glass scanner window (narrow strip of glass) needs cleaning. One "spot" of dirt will appear as a streak on the receiving end.
If you "copy" a document you can check the streak and see how effective your cleaning is.

Black streaks on prints


Where the original page that you wish scanned/faxed there will be a device called a "scan part". This device "reads" the paper to be faxed/scanned as it passes. It usually is found very near where the paper to be faxed goes in.
If there is a spec of debris on this part it will cause a fine line straight down the document. If its dirty, the document will be too! Just give it a good cleaning and you should be fine.

Transmitted pages are too dark, practically unreadable :


I suspect your scanner unit is going bad or it is extremely dirty.

Making a copy gets same result as when you send.
