Question about Canon FAXPHONE B640 Plain Paper Bubblejet

Check Rec Paper

My unit will not pull paper from the back tray no matter what function I am requesting (i.e. printing a function report, copying a document, receiving a fax...). I have reset it, switched out the paper, put in a new ink cartridge, everything I can think of and I just can't get it to work. This has generally been a great product and I would like to fix it if I can. Any suggestions?

Re: Check Rec Paper

First power off the machine. Facing the machine from the front, remove the rear tray extension that holds the paper and "feel your way" down into the right side of the of the back paper tray. You should feel a out-of-round feed roller. With a little effort you can rotate this around. Take a terry like cloth and dampen it with water and clean this roller. Before puttin any paper back into the tray, turn the machine back on so the paper feed assembly will return to the home position.

How do I get faxes and copies to print from tray 2?

That is an advanced feature, genrally this is known as Automatic drawer eligibility. However, I am not sure this device offers this advanced feature. Look for options to select drawers for your diff functions in your users manual. Sorry best I can say...

I cant recive any fax

Sometimes the plain paper in the tray underneath upsets the whole machine.

Open up the top of the machine, as if you were going to change the toner cartridge. Pull out the cartridge carefully to mae sure that there is not a piece of paper jameed underneath. Replace the catridge and close the top of the machine. when you close the top 'door' the machine will make a noise as if it is resetting itself - the 'jam' display may or may not clear at this point. Next, pull out the paper tray. You will need to stoop down to look into the gap where the tray normally sits. If there is a piece of paper jammed at the back this will need to be carefully removed. If you pull it out make sure there a re no fragments left int he machine - you can check this by oepning out the piece of paper removed and see if there are any pieces missing.
Finally, if all is clear, replace the paper tray (it would be worth topping up your supply of paper as the 'jam' message sometimes comes up when the machine has a low paper supply.

Hope this helps.

How Can I Reprint a Fax?

Here's a trick that I used on the Canon thermal transfer years ago. First take out the thermal transfer unit and roll up the black transfer sheet to the begining of the lost fax. Then reload the paper. Next get a solid black original equal and make a copy. The result you should get a negative copy of the lost fax. Repeat this step until all the faxes are recovered..
