Firstly, knowing your operating system would seem like cheating but would save all of us time. Vista likes us to waste time but most other Windows versions make it easy to see if your fax services are enabled. Go to Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs or Programs and features to see if you have the check boxes all checked. If you feel adventurous you can go to Start>Run>type mmc, Enter then add snap ons, choose services and see if any relevant services are disabled. Fax printers are also accessible in the Printers window where you can add a printer which is what fax really is More info gets you more help. your friend, Steve Medley

Disconnect non standard fax protocol device (i.e. PC data modem, credit card machine, etc.) from line. The fax will only communicate with ITU-T standard fax protocol devices.

Check your ink cartridges and fill any that may be low. I got that error because one of the cartridges (magenta) needed to be refilled. The printer was storing failure reports in its memory until they could be printed out, leaving no room to fax new documents. As soon as the ink cartridge was replaced, the reports printed and freed up the memory to send out faxes.

Thanks

You then have to power cycle the printer (hold down on/off for 1 second, wait 10 seconds, power on, wait for it to get ready (another 10-20 seconds).

How long have you had it? Initially you can try to disconnect the printer from the computer and do copy. Another thing is you can try to plug the printer to another compute. Also try to reinstall the printer software just like doing it from the scratch. Uninstall any previous printer driver and software.

Clear the internal memory on the machine, perform a reset in the menu - restore to defaults, just clear out more memory in the device.

Says memory full but nothing in memory


Memory full errors can be caused by a couple of things. When you send a fax the machine settings and the amount of installed memory can cause this. Check the resolution you have the fax machine set at, usually it is set on something like "text" or "draft", if it is set on somthing like "fine" or "super fine" you will fill up the memory faster. Also if you are loading the document into memory before it actually connects with the other machine this could happen. Try looking for a switch or setting on your machine that says "direct". If you have a direct send enabled, your machine will not load the image into memory, it will wait for the other machine to answer and start receiving before actually doing any transmitting of the document. These are just general ideas as you did not describe the make or model of your machine. Hope this helps.

Pixma MP530 Fax Problems


I am having a similar problem. You do have to connect your phone to the jack in the machine in the "Phone" jack slot, as well as have another line out to the jack in the wall in the "L" slot. That is all I know. I am having problems with my voicemail. Either I can received voicemail, and no faxes, or faxes, and no voicemail (fax picks up at specified number of rings). It is EXTREMELY frustrating. The machine is *supposed* to be able to discern between phone calls and faxes..and that is not happening.

Have you come across a solution? Aghhhhh!

Canon MP530 - Fax Not Working


sounds like the rollers need to have them cleaned little rubbing alcohol and soft non fiberous paper towel to help clean
there is also in fax a paper feeder that needs to cleaned its like the roller but usually only one roller this mechanical device pops up grabs next page and pushes it into fax

make sure pages arent static cling to each other this will also make a one page fax happen
example
when you take a staple out of packet your faxing put a little air between pages this is static cling

  • You will need to connect a telephone to your machine if you want to talk to the recipient before sending a document.
Follow this procedure:
  1. Connect a telephone to your machine if you want to talk to the recipient before sending a document

    recipient's voice, go to step 9.)

  8. Ask the recipient to set recipient's fax machine to receive faxes.

  9. When you hear a high-pitched signal, press <Color> for color sending, or <Black> for black & white sending. Then hang up the handset.
