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.

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.

Samsung MFC-SF560 fax not printing complete page


If you have already try another image unit, you should try to make a copy or print a report. If the prints came out ok, the problem could be the telephone line. GOOD LUCK.

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.

HP 1010 fax - only receives first pages of a fax


Do you have DSL, or any other type of digital phone line.

Usually this is caused by a "noisy" phone line; some sort of interference.
