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

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.

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.

Paper jam sending faxes

It is the document stop arm that is broken.You can remove it.The machine will work without it.
Just make sure you remove the document stop arm and not one of the other sensor flags in the document feeder.

To send a fax you do not need to enter anything into your fax. You have to make sure that you connect the telephone line to it's desgnated connector. You dial a number to send as if you are calling form a normal phone. If you ever get a ringing tone press start. You can enter any data trough the data registration after you make sure your fax is functioning properly.

Can't stop the transmision report - continues to print page after page

Make sure the transmitter knows how to send a FAX, i personally wasted a lot of time and paper because the sender doesn't know that the FAX machine had an automatic document feeder and that all pages has to be put in position before sending, and not page by page while sending.
Also see in the FAX manual if it can avoid printing the transmission report. Most Panasonic Faxes can do that.

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.
