The fax you see is the one windows install by default with XP/Vista, nothing to do with your printer.
Are you sure the CD you are installing contains the drivers for your printer? If not, download this and install it: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=DownloadDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=334&modelid=15402
Good Luck!!!

Printer will not print fom computer MY PRINTER IS AN X1290 NOT A 1020 JET PRINTER AS REGISTERED


A quick fix for most communication errors can be achieved by resetting the printer and/or rebooting the PC. Simply disconnect the printer from your computer. Reboot your pc. Unplug and re-plug the printer into the power source to reset it. When the printer turns on, reconnect it to your computer. Then try to print again once the computer fully recognizes the USB connection.


If that doesn't help, try the steps below:

1. Disconnect the printer from your computer.

2. Re-brick your printer. Pull out the power supply, black box where the power cord is plugged in at the back of the printer, and put it back after 30 seconds.

2. On your computer, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes.

3. Delete the Lexmark print object.

4. Reboot your pc.

5. When your pc turns on, reconnect the printer.

6. Wait until your pc fully recognizes the USB connection. To check, go to Control Panel > Printers and Faxes. If you see a new Lexmark print object in the list, then try to print a document again to verify that the problem is fixed.


You may also try to update your printer driver by visiting the Lexmark website at http://bit.ly/nJ7AgN. Select your operating system, download and execute the file.

Unable to connect, get error message USB cable not connected but it is. Been working fine until today, about a month old


disconnect printer usb cable, then uninstall the printer from the computer by deleting the driver at the printer console, then connect the printer usb cable up and install using the driver downloaded fromt he kodak.com website. This should solve your problem.

Good luck.

My fax machine was working great up until this morning. I am able to send faxes but not receive them. The machine is hooked up to the phone jack and shares the line with our credit card machine. It is not...


It's entirely possible that your fax machine will just miraculously start working again. If it was hooked up to your computer you'd possibly be getting an error message, which when interpreted by its code number, would tell you it's not receiving the phone signals correctly for a period of time but soon will.

Hope I'm right,

Computer cannot detect printer


Try this:

Go to the Control Panel, then open Printers and Faxes.

If your Canon is listed remove it by right clicking and deleting.

Check Add and Remove software to see if any part of Canon’s software is listed and delete it if it is.

Leaving the printer on and connected, restart your system.

This should force Windows to recognize the printer and install a compatible driver from its library.
If successful, choose some document to print to see if the printer is now responding.

If this is also successful, then try reinstalling Canon’s software to regain access to special features not part of the Win driver.

Reformatting your drive is often not necessary and can cause the kind of problem you are experiencing; Restore works pretty good in most cases unless you picked up a really tenacious virus and couldn’t remove it any other way.

About Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection (DRPD)
"Distinctive Ring" is a service provided by some telephone service providers. Two phone numbers are assigned to one phone line so that you will hear different ring patterns for incoming phone calls than for incoming faxes. If you subscribe to this service, follow the instructions below to program your All-In-One to use it.
On the X125:
Press Setup once, then press Menu nine (9) times until DRPD appears on the display.
On the X63:
  1. Press Setup once, then press Menu eight (8) times until DRPD appears on the display.
  2. Press Options until you see Learn, and then press Start/Yes.
  3. Dial the phone number that you want to use as a fax number. (Do this from a different phone line, not from the line the fax will be installed on.)
  4. Press Setup.
  5. Press Menu until you see Fax Receive Mode on the display.
  6. Press Options until you see DRPD, and then press Start/Yes. The All-In-One detects the ring pattern and answers all incoming faxes on the second ring.

Fax picking up the main Line


YOU ACTUALLY NEED TO USE DRPD MODE WHICH IS IN FAAX SETUP  AND SET IT TO THE TYPE OF RING PATTERN YOU HAVE ON YR RINGMASTER SYSTEM.

IT WILLL START DETECTING THE RIGHT TYPE OF RINGPATTERN FOR FAX MODE ..
