    I tried unhooking all cables and reconnecting and still nothing. I also replaced the phone cord from the printer to the wall thinking my cord might be bad, nothing. I tried faxing from another line and it comes up on the transmitting machine as "No answer"...so I thought maybe it's the line itself, but when you call from a regular phone you automatically get the fax screech in your ear..crazy!

    Just a note, this printer does not have an on/off button it just says energy saver, to turn it off-off you have to unplug it

    I can send faxes no problem, scan no problem, and print with no problem. I checked my country settings also and we are all good there.

How do I get a paper conformation for faxes on a cannon mx922


From page 98 of the fax users manual:
"This report is printed after each fax reception.
• At the time of purchase, the machine is set so that RX REPORT is not printed at all.
You can set the machine to print RX REPORT each time it receives a document, or only when an error occurs by selecting RX report in Auto print settings under FAX settings."

You should have the manual on the cd that came with the printer. If not try the link listed.

On my Canon MX310, the display says "Waiting for Report". Fax Memory is clear, but the In Use/Memory light stays on.


Try this step ... found it on Canon's website

Issue: ERROR LCD: WAITING FOR REPORT
Solution: Set [AUTO PRINT RX] to ON (MX300 / MX310)

AUTO PRINT RX When [AUTO PRINT RX] is set to [OFF], incoming received faxes will be temporarily stored to memory and transaction reports (TX, RX and Activity) remain in memory. The default setting is [ON], which means incoming received faxes and transaction reports will automatically print. The fax machine will not automatically print a received fax and will store it in memory in the following conditions.
  • Ink is low or has run out
  • The paper size and type is not set correctly
  • Paper has run out
  • The Output Tray is closed
To set AUTO PRINT to ON, please follow these steps.
  1. Press the <FAX> button to enter the Fax menu.

  2. Press the <Menu> button. [FAX SETTINGS] is displayed

  3. Press the left or right arrow button to select [RX SETTINGS] , then press <OK> two times.

  4. Press the left arrow to select [ON], then press <OK>.

    Note: When AUTO PRINT RX is set ON, a sub-menu will appear to PRINT WHEN NO INK.

  5. At sub-menu PRINT WHEN NO INK, decide if you'd like the machine to continue to print incoming received faxes if ink is low.

    CAUTION: When this option is set ON, the fax machine will not monitor the ink level of the ink cartridges. If ink is low or out, received faxes will print with streaks or blank. Furthermore, once the fax is printed, it will be deleted from memory.
    1. To print received faxes when ink is low or out, press the left or right arrow to select [ON] and then press <OK>.
    2. To store received faxes in memory when ink is low or out, press the left or right arrow to select [OFF] and then press <OK>.

  6. Press the <Stop/Reset> repeatedly to return to Fax standby mode.

I am still unable to receive faxes that are printed automatically when they arrive. they mst be going to memory and i cannot get them to print out of memory. can yo please help me. i paid for this service...


If you are getting a low ink message no you will not be able to fax until this is resolved. Once you replace the ink cart. then you can get to the steps where you can clear the fax memory until then the steps that we would give you will not work.

You can visit www.canon.com click on your printer model then on support and you can download the manual in this manual there will be step by step instructions on how to clear the memory on the fax. this can also be cleard once you print them keep that in mind. so first purchse ink then your going to print your faxes by hitting that button twice the reason why it will not work now is because your low on ink.


If you like this solution please hit accept.


Thanks

Makes French police car sound every 2 minutes


it is trying to resend/receive something. NG means No Good - so the beep is an indicator of the missed-tranmission.

I suspect someone inadvertently setup a pop3 check interval and it cannot connect to the specified mail server.

Check by going to the Data Registration button (flip all the plastic covers over the button pad)
go to additional settings->3.Fax settings->1.user settings->8.Lan settings->Mail User Settings->
SMTP Server->4. check interval

It should say 000MIN

I bet it is set to 2MIN

"waiting for report" /won't copy


I experienced this problem when "Fax Setting -> TX Setting -> Print Report" is configured before you send out the fax.
After your Fax was sent, and the message "Waiting for report" appear forever and does not leave.
It is because your INK Level is Low and your have set "Fax Setting -> RX Setting -> Auto Print ON -> Print when no ink OFF", and so the report will not be printed out due to ink level is low.

Solution:
Configure "Fax Setting -> RX Setting -> Auto Print ON -> Print when no ink to ON", and the report will be printed out immediately, the message disappear.
