Question about Canon PIXMA MX700 All-In-One InkJet Printer

1 Answer

I have a Canon MX700. I tried to send a fax then

I have a Canon MX700. I tried to send a fax then realized I did not have the phone line plugged in. Plugged in phone line and rescanned fax, said it was in auto-redial xx8 (flashed between the auto-redial and numbers) It would not let me power off in front so plugged the power line out and then back in. Now it says it is in standby mode and cannot get it out of that mode. I have tried the settings, fax button, black 'print' buttong and stop/reset. All to no avail. Any ideas?

Try removing the ink and printhead, turn printer off and then on. If printer asks you for the printhead, then ink, then you may have just gotten a working printer again. I hope this works.

SOURCE: Can't use the fax on my Canon MP 530

There are 2 ports on the rear, 1 for the incomming phone line, and one to plug in a telephone handset (passthrough) if the telephone line is plugged into the wrong port, the fax machine is unable to dial properly, So try plugging into the other port on the back, it's just next to the other port hope this helps

SOURCE: Canon MP830 power outage while printing

My MP830 did the same thing today. I thought it was toast. However through a Google search I found the following suggestion.

Unplug the MP830 for 20 minutes or more. Plug the MP830 back in and hit the power button.

To might great relief my MP830 powered up and is working just fine.

SOURCE: Pixma MP530 Fax Problems

I am having a similar problem. You do have to connect your phone to the jack in the machine in the "Phone" jack slot, as well as have another line out to the jack in the wall in the "L" slot. That is all I know. I am having problems with my voicemail. Either I can received voicemail, and no faxes, or faxes, and no voicemail (fax picks up at specified number of rings). It is EXTREMELY frustrating. The machine is *supposed* to be able to discern between phone calls and faxes..and that is not happening.

Have you come across a solution? Aghhhhh!

SOURCE: canon mx700 fax report problems

after emailing canon support, the answer is this: 1) the fax paper size must be "letter" - 8.5-11". 2) reset all settings through settings menu. the fax will then print reports (and also every report that was not printed before).

Fax line picks up during phone call

Most faxes have a small adapter plugged into the back of them and then the phone line plugged into the adapter and what this adapter does is eliminate 2 of the contact wires in the main phone line. Faxes only use 2 of the transmit wires. This probably will eliminate the interrupt. The adapter can be picked up at stores such as Radio Shack

Is it possible to prevent the MX700 from receiving & printing incoming faxes (junk faxes)?

It is not designed to do so but try this... Go into your FAX menu and select "Display Device Settings." From there, choose RX settings and then DRPD. DRPD is designed to allow you fax to only answer calls with a distintive ring pattern. By setting it to a pattern that doesn't exist, it should allow the calls to be ignored. Try setting it to something like short short long. Once thats done, go into "User Settings" and "RX Level" and set the volume to zero so you don't hear it ring. If that doesn't work about all you can do is keep the phone line unplugged until you need to send a fax.

Unable to complete fax transmissions

This turned out to be a Vonage issue. I was able to fax from my landline. I googled vonage and mx700 and found a number of similar issues. I also ended up setting my speed to 9600 and turning off TX error reporting. A quick call to vonage and an updated profile (not sure what they did) resolved the issue.

I had the same problem. Solution? I will sound stupid, but it worked for me. Check every phone cable. Unplug and replug it. I solved my problem by making my connections simpler. I think, one of my splitter was faulty.

I still not understand why. I tried to fax without any phones plug-on and it was not working neither.

I'm with "" for my phone line and I unplugged the line from the modem too, then replug it. Maybe it was just that!

A lot of people seem to have this problem. I called Canon twice and they made me change some setting in my printer but their solutions was not working. I put all the setting back to what they was and it still working now.

My printer answers all phone calls

With assistance from Canon I did a data print-out of my printer. If the "ROM" version in the upper left of page one comes up less than 1.08 you have the first stock of that printer that came out on the shelf and the sensitivity level of the fax is set too low causing the fax to interrupt voice calls. It can be repaired by a certified Canon Tech in your area or, if still under the one year warranty, Canon will send you a replacement printer. But they'll only send you a refurbished printer. The Canon repair Tech in my area couldn't guarantee the repair would be under warranty even though my printer is only 6 months old. Canon flatly refused to send me a new replacement, even though they openly admit the machine was defective when put on the shelf. My suggestion is to NEVER buy a Canon product again. They do not stand behind their product, even when they've messed up.
