Question about Canon FAXPHONE L80 Laser

2 Answers

Send and receive speed

We recently got our phones through the cable company and all of the phone lines work great but our fax line. When I called the cable company they said that I need to change the speed on my fax to below 9600. I am not sure what that is nor do I know how to change it. I can not find anything on how to adjust the speed on our Canon L80 faxphone machine. Is there anyway you can help us? Thank you, Mary

That's not even a coherent response. Even analog phones go from an analog signal from your home, to a digital signal at the carrier, to an analog signal at the recipients end. It all goes digital at some point.

Fax machines work fine with a digital phone. The baud rate may need to be lowered in some cases, but working for a cable company, I've personally worked with hundreds of fax machines that work just fine.

Try lowering the baud rate and/or using a DSL filter if you are having problems. If you are unable to find the baud rate or speed setting on your fax, you may want to contact Canon to find out how.

Hi Mary,

The Cable Company is jerking you around. Fax machines are ANALOG devices, you now have a DIGITAL phone system.

No matter what you do to your fax machine, it will never work reliably.

Sorry.

Can not receive or send fax. There is the phone tone on the BT line.


When we are speaking about faxes you have to try at least a few numbers, because there is sometimes a temporary problems with tel line speed. To send or receive the fax the tel line should be stable. Fax machine try to connect to highest speed (33,6 by default) and if the line is not stable you will receive connection error.
Try again but tomorrow or ask yout telephone company if there is a problem with line

Can not receive or send faxes???


If your fax machine was working before this could be a line problem. Call your fax number with your cell phone or another phone. If you get a message phone the phone company or it just rings busy its probably a line problem. Another check is to plug your hand set into the wall outlet jack, you should hear the dial tone. If there is no dial tone its also a line problem. Or just try pluging your fax machine in at another location, if it works there you know its a line problem. If its still not working its going to be one of the boards inside the fax machine. Good luck.

I can receive faxes just fine, but when I send more than 1 page some pages are ''dropped''and not receoved. Ink new, paper new.


Hi. Try to lower the Max Send Speed in the Fax settings to 9600 bps or check quality of signal in the telephone line from phone company. You can call your phone company to have line checked. Hope this helps.

Cant send or receive fax just get a fast busy signal when I try to send fax. please help


Normally a fast busy signal indicates a problem with the phone line. You need to call the phone company and have them do a "line check"
Sometimes they can fix this over the phone, sometimes a service call is required. No charge to you tho.

Having trouble receiving faxes, takes several times of someone sending to me to receive.


First thing to check is the condition of the phone line, if the machine has a handset make a phone call from the handset, is the line clear? Is there any static or Echos on the line?
Is the machine on a shared line with computers or an answering machine?
Call the Fax machine from a phone, is the line clear? did the machine generate its handshake burst? Did anything else try to answer the line?
Check the phone cable input, it should be going onto the LINE jack on the back of the machine.

WILL NOT RECEIVE FAX


Fax machines are ANALOG devices and are designed to have their own dedicated phone line. They will not work reliably on DIGITAL phone lines.

Can't receive fax but can send


Call your cell phone from the fax machine and check the caller ID to make sure that it is the correct number for your fax machine. Next, call the fax machine from you cell phone, and make sure the fax machine rings. Problems like these are almost always a phone line issue, not the machine.

Send and receive fax


Faxes cannot be received but they can be sent Review the information below to determine why faxes are not being received.
  1. Phone company services: Do you have any of the following telephone line services from your telephone company: Voice Mail, Privacy Block, Security Screen, Anonymous Call Rejection, and Privacy Manager. These phone services are meant to prevent unwanted calls, but they will also stop faxes. Contact your telephone company for their recommended solution for receiving faxes on the same line with these services.
  2. If you wish to receive faxes automatically, verify that automatic answering is enabled on models that have an Auto Answer button, or that the Rings to Answer setting is set to a number equal to or larger than one for models that do not have an Auto Answer button. On models with an Answer Mode setting, it should be set to Fax, FaxTel, or AnswerMachine depending on your setup.
  3. If an answering machine is connected to the same line, fax reception problems can occur. These problems may be corrected by changing settings or phone line connections
  4. If you have a PBX phone system, or an ISDN or DSL modem connected to the line, there may be some phone line configuration problems. Fax machines are analog devices and cannot be used on a digital phone service such as those used in many businesses (PBX systems). Install an analog phone line for a fax machine.
Faxes cannot be sent but can be received Follow the steps below to correct the problem.
  1. Verify that you are dialing the number correctly. You must dial all of the numbers required to make a phone call from the same line. This includes numbers that must be dialed to access an outside line or to access long distance services.
  2. If you have been using a speed dial or are faxing from the computer, print the page to be faxed and manually dial the number from the front panel of the fax. If the fax can be sent when dialed from the front panel, recreate the speed dial setting and insert some pauses.
  3. If you are trying to fax from the computer with a model that supports PC faxing and the fax does not try to dial when you send a fax job, test the communications to the all-in-one by clicking Status in the Director, or by trying to print to the all-in-one.
    • If this is reported as disconnected or printing fails, verify that the communications cable from the computer to the all-in-one is connected correctly and restart the computer.
    • If communications still cannot be established, troubleshoot the communications
  4. Faxes fail intermittently or with only one fax number
    • If static is present on the phone line, fax communication may fail. Have the phone line checked and serviced by the telephone company (or have the other party check their line). Phone line quality is the most common reason for intermittent fax failures. Some older locations and buildings have inadequate phone system wiring.
    • If you are trying to send a color fax and it fails, try sending the same machine a black and white fax. Normally the fax will detect that the other fax is not color capable and will offer you the option to send the fax as black and white but this might not always be the case. Do not send color faxes unless you know the other fax machine is capable of receiving color faxes.
    • Check the phone cable from the wall jack to the fax. It should not be coiled or longer than necessary. Coiling the cable can cause cross talk or echo on the line. Signal strength and quality can be lost with long cables.
    • Make sure the phone cable routing (and any cables not plugged into the same jack but sharing the same line) is not near any electrical appliances (electric motors, fans, kitchen appliances, or televisions). Many of these devices do not have sufficient electrical shielding and can induce electro-magnetic force (EMF) onto the phone line. Computers are usually shielded sufficiently and do not cause this problem.
    • Do not use a call-waiting service on the same line connected to the fax machine. The click sound caused by an incoming call can cause the fax to fail.
    • You can block certain faxes on some models. Verify that the telephone number of the sending fax is not blocked in the faxing software. This is usually located in the Fax History.
