Question about Canon FAXPHONE L80 Laser

1 Answer

Sending a fax from my L80 to an overseas fax machine.

I need to send a fax to a fax machine in Taiwan. The country number is 886. The fax number in Taipei is 2-23937330. I tried sending with the following number entered: 1886223937330. After trying to dial twice, my machine displayed the message, "Number is busy. Try again later." If we are supposed to place pauses in the number, where are they to be placed? And, what button do I press to enter a pause. The only button I see faintly related to "pause," is a space button. Your Basic Guide and User's Guide both say simply to enter pauses in the number. There is no mention of how to do so, or where the pauses are to be placed. Thank you, Stik

    I also recently developed a problem, and I'm not sure if it's a Canon L80 problem, or a phone problem.

    Following a recent, highly charged thunderstorm, delivering lots of lightning to the area, when my fax machine is connected to the phone line and the main land line phone, none of the phones work to call out. I have to disconnect the fax machine for the phones to work.

    Lightning did not strike any closer than 1/2 mile from the house where the fax is located.

    Can you tell me what might have happened?

Sending a fax to another county is easy - almost as easy as sending a fax to someone in your own country. The only difference is the phone number that you'll dial.
When sending a fax from one U.S. city to another, you dial a 1, then the area code, then the seven-digit phone number. When sending a fax from the U.S. to another country, you usually dial 011, then the country code, then a city code (which is like an area code), then the phone number. (The phone number isn't necessarily seven digits.) Check out the web site, which will give you the specific country and city codes for the place that you're trying to send a fax to.
Other than figuring out the phone number, faxing internationally is identical to faxing domestically. Fax machines in other countries use the same protocols as ones in the United States, so you should have no difficulty communicating with a foreign fax machine. Older fax machines and noisy overseas phone lines may cause the transmission to take a bit longer than you're used to, but it should get there.
The first time you send a fax to another country, it might be a good idea to listen in as the fax machine dials. On some fax machines, you can press the "Dial" button to hear the dial tone, and dial the number manually. Listen for the ring and fax tone, then press the Start button to send the fax. You might want to do this the first time you send a fax overseas, just to make sure it's working as expected.

Not able to receive Faxes from a Canon Faxphone L80

Describe 'Lots of noise'.....was it static? Or high pitched varying tones (also known as handshake) Normally the two beeps are after the 'handshake tones' which means that the fax is awaiting an answer from sending machine. If you don't mind, email me your fax number so that I can hear exactly what you are hearing.

How do I add the "+" sign to send an overseas tax?

There should be no need to get the (+) sign. Dialing 011 + country code + phone number should allow you to directly call the fax you're trying to reach. This link will explain the process as well as supply country codes. I hope this solves your problem. Best of luck to you.

When sending a fax on the faxphone L80 it pulls in duplicate page

There is a little rubber pad where original feed in. Look at it on edge and you'll see it has concave wear. Carefully remove black plastic hold down and flip rubber pad over. You'll have to make a new hole so it will lay flat.

Doesn't receive from two fax numbers outside the UK

I would suggest there is nothing actually wrong with your machine, as you can indeed receive faxes from other parties. The problem mostly likely lies with the equipment and/or lines of the sending party. One thing you might suggest to them is to turn off ECM (Error Correction Mode) and/or lowering the sending/receiving speed of the machine - preferably the sending speed of the sending party.
