Can't receive faxes directly to my PC using Canon Pixma MX850

Hi,

I just got a new all in one: the Canon Pixma MX 850. It is connected to my PC via a USB 2.0. I can fax from my PC without having to go thru a paper print first, but can't receive on my PC directly (ie onto the Pixma in an electronic file and transfer this file onto the PC). As one is albe to scan using the Pixma and save those documents onto the PC - I think one should be able to do the same with fax?

Thanks for your help.

    I have installed Fax Services within Windows. The problem is that faxes that are received on the Pixma can't be downloaded onto the PC in ANY format. I believe this maybe an industry-wide problem. Is anyone else able to get their PC to read faxes received by their multi-purpose unit?

I know this is a very old post, but I happen to notice on the Canon website while searching for my answers that an Mx850 does not have the capability to upload faxes to the computer.

Hope this helps!

If you did not install Fax Services within Windows it will not allow you to receive faxes unless your have other SW that came from the factory with your machine.

Canon mx 850 problem is when the copy button is pushed to make a black and white copy the printer acts as if it is printng color. Prints very slowly. Phil


I do not know the Canon MX 850 but it seems like your printer is set to default to high quality printing. Check the setting in your Canon software for something like this.

Wait one complete minute until applying power to modem then wait one minute before applying power to wireless router. 3. Ensure you have green lights across both devices, specifically, the recieved and sent lights.

Mx 850 gives error code 6A00 . We have purchased


6A00 means the purge unit is not cycling properly. If the printhead can come out of the right corner, you check there for paper scraps. If it's stuck on the right with this error you will need a shop to take apart and see if you need a new purge assembly. The part cost is only around $20.00

Computer says Orinter is Offline but is connected. Has the Fax button highlighted. Only have Copy, Fax, Scan, Memory Card to select from, which one should be highlighted for printing from connected PC


In order to print from PC you should choose COPY function. To check the connection between PC and your printer perform these steps:
  • Right click on printer driver name (Canon PIXMA MX 850 in this case)
  • Choose Properties
  • Click on Maintenance tab
  • Click View Printer Status: the status should ONLINE in order to print or scan
If still Offline,please recheck USB cable,reinstal it,or compare with another cable.

Mx 850 canon with reoccurring error of 6010 or 6000


if it's 6A00 then theres a problem with the cleaning unit where the printhead parks. Look for any paper scraps in that area, 6000 is a paper feed error saying something may have fallen in stopping the paper transport roller.

Canon pixma mx 300 won't send or receive fax


Dear friend,
it's very important to connect your MX 300 with the telephone line the right way! Please read once more the part "Preparing the machine for fax" in the chapter "Faxing" of the MX 300 User's Guide and mind the hint "Important: Do not connect the machine and external devices in parallel to the same telephone line using a splitter (A). The machine may not operate properly."

Greetings from Cologne (Germany) to the UK!
