Make a copy and see what that looks like. You are using the same components when faxing.

Whenever i send a fax, the machine confirms by viewing 'TRANSMITTING OK' but the addressee receives a blank document


Check the baud rate of your transmissions. Slow them down to the slowest setting and send a test fax to a helpful person. Slowly increase the baud rate (communication data speed) and send the fax test. When the fax doesn't show up on the receive site, then step one baud rate speed back, and save the setting.

It could also be your fax that is faulty, or even the receive sites fax, also being faulty.

To test your copy-head, insert a document into your loading section of the fax and press copy. If the copy prints out fine, then you know the head is reading correctly.

It is also possible that the receiver fax (the other end) has a printhead failure.

It just won't work. The light is green but I send a document to the printer and nothing happens. When I turn it on the light is red but if I put the "job cancel" button it will got to green.


Go to "Printers and Faxes" in the "Control Panel" and check to see if your printer shows any documents waiting to be printed, Cancel these documents and Right click your printer icon
select "Properties" and select "Print Test Page" to test your connection...For varies reasons documents sometimes fail to print and the printer queue backs up

Brother Intellifax. When I make copies and send faxes there is a 2 inch black line on the side of the paper, but not when i receive faxes. Do I need a new drum? They run approximately 189.00 so any help...


It is NOT the drum. It is your document scanner. 2 inches wide is big so most likely it is not the typical scrap of paper or whiteout that gets stuck to the scanner glass. Lift up the ops panel where the documents are fed in to be copied. Look for a strip of glass that runs from one side to the other. Make sure there is nothing on the glass. At 2 inched wide it is more likely that you have some of the LED's that light up going bad. Under the glass is a row of LED's that light up to scan the document. If a block of these are not lighting up then this then causes the black band to show up. If this is the case then you will need to have the scanner repaired or buy a new machine which might be cheaper. No question tho, it is in the scanner as this is the only area that will cause clean incoming faxes but bad copies and outgoing faxes.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

Its giving me a pls open cover offline screen and it wont send any faxes i might be stupid this maybe is normal or simple but when the machine is warming it gives out a wicked screeching noise


Hi Fax machines are one of the oldest ways to send document information over a telephone line. Before e-mail became the most popular, and more efficient way to send documents, the fax machine was king. With time, fax machines have become sophisticated machines capable of many functions. No longer found only as a stand-alone machine, fax machines are included in copiers and printers. Faxing can even be done through computer software to a receiving fax machine or printer. So with such a complex machine there are several things that could go wrong. This article teaches you some basic troubleshooting steps.
    Fax Quality
  1. If the faxes you are receiving are too dark or light, or ruined by streaks and splotches, play around with the darkness and density settings on your machine. Send a few test faxes until the quality looks good on your end. If the faxes continue to come out poorly, the problem probably lies on the sender's end. If you are the sender, and your documents are coming out badly on the other end, try cleaning the sensors of your machine with a damp cloth.

Have you checked if there are any Documents Stuck in Queue to print ? ( under Control panel - Printer and faxes folder )

look for Print Spooler in the list
highlight Print Spooler,
Click on STOP button then click on START
close the window and check if the print queue is gone. ( Refresh the Printers and Faxes folder )

If this does not fix the issue :

In the black window type
NET STOP SPOOLER ( hit enter button )
Type
NET START SPOOLER ( hit enter button )

Repeat the Stop and START Command 4-5 times

Open Printers and faxes folder - Refresh the Window - the printer will show Status ready with 0 document

MX310, says receiving fax but nothing comes out.



michael885 -

Your unit has a certain amount of memory designed to store faxes... if they are stored there, here are the instructions for retrieving the fax's from the memory:

(I found this at: http://safemanuals.com/annexe_MX310%20series%20Easy%20Setup%20Instructions_CANON_PIXMA%20MX310-_E.htm
)

�� Printing a List of Documents in Memory
The machine can print a list of documents stored in memory (the memory list) showing the
transaction number (TX/RX NO.), transaction mode, recipient, number of pages, date, and
transmission time of each document. When printing or deleting documents in memory, specify a
document by its transaction number.
1 Press the FAX button, then press the Menu button.
2 Press the [ or ] button to select MEMORY REFERENCE.
3 Press the OK button two times.
The memory list is printed.
�� Printing or Deleting a Document in Memory
1
Press the FAX button, then press the Menu button.
2 Press the [ or ] button to select MEMORY REFERENCE.
3 Press the OK button.


Hope this helps!

I send a document from WORD (ms vista) and nothing happens. Printer window shows a document to print.. but nothing ever prints. No lights blink as usual, nothing. restarted computer, still nothing.


Vista has most drivers, and certainly supports your printer.
Try this routine.
First turn on your computer.
Now, turn on printer, and connect the USB.
Vista will recognize it.
i) Go to printers and faxes and set your printer as default, because there are other software like One note which could be default.
OR ii) Go to your word document, ctrl+P for print settings, choose your printer from the drop down menu

Nothing prints on the paper for incoming faxes or copying a document.


i suspect you are correct in cleaning the unit.inkjets if not used often enough the ink will clog the print head. usually the easiest solution is to keep cleaning unit it works again. other wise to clean the print head manually requires the unit to be completely dissambled. it takes a long time to fix it this way. or if replacement costs are acceptable you can replace it. i would just give it a dozen or so more cleanings.
