Question about Canon PIXMA MX700 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

Fax not sending or receiving

I had the phone company confirm it's not a problem in the line.
It just stopped sending and receiving one day. I haven't made any changes in the settings from the days when it WAS working. Is there a way to "reset" the fax function? Or any advice at all?

The fax function is controlled by a fax card on the inside of the printer. Most likely, that card has failed. You will need to contact Canon to get a replacement card and instructions on replacing it.

Thanks and please take a moment to give this a good rating of fixya.

You either have a noisy or Digital phone line.

Have your phone company check the line.

I have NEVER seen a bad fax modem, unless it was fried by a lightning strike.

Stopped receiving faxes ten days ago. Can still send faxes. Senders say it just rings and rings. Calling the fax by phone confirms many rings, then fax belltones. What do you think is the problem?


go to menu option and choose the option fax and set the parameter like auto receive or manual set the ring auto answer mode after certain ring. If it is in auto receiving mode it will receive the fax after the ring which you set.

The fax will only work on an analog phone line, most offices these days especially if you have multiple lines, are digital. You may need the phone company to install a modem compatible phone line.

The receiving fax machine is turned off or not functioning. Try calling your cell phone.

No fax reception


Send will work on any phone lines
fax machines are often set to only answer 'secondary' ring tones, double triple or higher. When the line was repaired the phone company may have dropped the special tone off your secondary fax line number, fax will not answer without that tone.
Check in the fax answer settings, what the ring tone is, specific instruction on menu settings in your user guide,
Ring your fax line, and check the tone.
If single number fax/phone, check that the fax is set to asnwer all calls then pass on non faxes

This is obviously a phone company issue or a defect in GE fax machine keypad or circuitry. Last but not least turn off your machine at night. Turn it back on when you wake up.
