Question about Canon CFX-L4000 Plain Paper Laser Fax

1 Answer

Only lets me enter 7 digit number

I picked this up from a business second hand, and when I enter a long distance number to fax too, the phone companies womans voice starts in with a 'carriers access code must be entered'. Now I know this is because we don't use long distance on our phone, but I have a phone card. Is there any way to enter a 1-800 number, then a pin number, then the fax number? Thanks in advance. Gil

Use the chain dialling feature. Program the 1-800 into a quick dial key and chain dial using it.

Hooking up fax to KX TG7871 Panasonic Phone


There is excellent support here on basic fax setups. You have what is known as "Distinctive Ringing Service". There are pros and cons to the various setups. I assume you recognize the rings and answer only when the ring for the landline talk comes on. The fax will pick up the faxes, and the answering machine will pick up the voice.

Need model number of your fax - google that!

This link shows various configurations of setting up your phone/fax/answering machine or using an answering service.

Distinctive Ringing Service setup While it is not available everywhere, a distinctive ringing service can be purchased from most telephone companies. With this service, more than one phone number is assigned to the same phone line. Each phone number will ring differently. The main number will ring with a normal single ring and the additional number will ring with a distinctive ring pattern assigned by the phone company.
When a distinctive ringing service is used, set the Rings to Answer to 2 and then follow the steps below to set the distinctive ringing pattern:
  1. Press Setup , press 4 , and then press 1 to enter the Answer Ring Pattern setup of the Advanced Fax settings.
  2. Use the Right Arrow to scroll through the available settings. When the ring pattern assigned by the phone company displays (double or triple rings), press OK .

Hi my hp 640 will not answer a fax call, but will answer only if we pick up the hand set.


Issue When the all-in-one product is sharing a phone line with voice calls, some calls are interrupted by fax tones. Follow the steps below to solve the problem.Step one: Check the Rings to Answer setting If Auto Answer is enabled, the HP fax product will answer the phone line when the number of rings reaches the number of rings specified in the Rings-to-Answer setting. When voice calls will be received on the same phone line as faxes, set to rings-to-answer to 6. If you do not want the fax to answer automatically, either turn off Auto Answer from the front panel and receive faxes manually (this may result in lost faxes) or subscribe to a distinctive ring service from the phone company (if available). Refer to the Answering faxes manually section below to learn how to answer faxes manually or refer to the Using distinctive ringing section below for more information about using distinctive ringing. The Rings-to-answer setting for the HP Officejet 500 and 600 series products can only be checked or set using the all-in-one software on the computer. The Rings-to-answer setting for the HP Officejet 500 and 600 series products can only be checked or set using the all-in-one software on the computer. Follow the steps below to check or change the setting for all models except the HP Officejet 500 and 600 series:
  1. Depending on the model, press either Menu , Setup , or Fax Setup repeatedly until Basic Fax Setup appears in the display.
  2. Press Enter (or Start or OK ).
  3. Press the right arrow button repeatedly until Rings to Answer is displayed, and then press Enter .
  4. The number of rings before the HP fax product answers will be displayed.
    • The setting is correct if it is 6. Press Cancel or Stop (Stop Fax) to exit the menu.
    • If the number is not 6, press the right arrow button until 6 appears in the display and then press Enter (or Start or OK ).

Not receiving any incoming faxes


Is the phone line working? Do you have any devices connected to the phone line that pick up before the fax machine? Make sure the machine has paper and is set to FAX or AUTO. Is there a Memory Full error? Clear the memory (Setup > Memory Clear then press Start/Enter. Use the left and right arrows to select the items to remove. Press Start/Enter twice (second time to confirm the choice). Repeat until all memory is cleared that you wish to clear. Then press Stop to exit.)

If you are using the ANS/FAX mode and have an answering machine connected to the extension port, disconnect the anwering machine and switch to FAX or AUTO. Check if the machine receives faxes. Sometimes the extra device causes interference. Call the fax machine from a different phone number and see if you hear the fax tones.

Check that the Junk Fax barrier is off, if the incoming call is from a machine that is not listed in your speed dial database. If you have a distinctive ring, make sure that the Fax machine has learned the ring by pressing Setup go to DRPD. Choose Set and call the fax machine from another phone. The LCD will say Waiting Ring until it gets that call and then once the ring is learned will say END DRPD Setup

I hope these ideas help.

(If you have a phone company voice mail service, the faxes may end up stuck in that box. It depends on how many rings the fax is set to wait before picking up versus when the voice mail opens to take the call.)

We are having problems with our Muratex F110 fax machine. It won't send long distance faxes. the phone company says it is not on their end. any suggestions?


Well technically it's not on thier end. Let's remember that a fax uses a normal home style phone line.
So ask yourself these questions.
#1 Do I have long distance service on this phone line?
#2 If I do have long distance service do I need to do any kind of special dialing sequence to access long distance? Like a 9 or an 8 or any other number before dialing outside of your local area.
In some cases( businesses usually) a special code needs to be entered after dailling the number.
Most fax machines have a hansdset on them. Do this simple test. Lift the handset and dial a known long distance number and listen to what the operator message says. If all else fails call your phone company and ask them if this line has long distance capability.

Fax problem. Trying to send international fax to France. I can hear the fax number being dialed ok, but no connection after 12 rings. Calling fax number from phone hooked up through mp530 connects ok! ...


Hi ...

It might be possible that the line is loose or the long distance calling code is incorrect. Follow the below instructions which might resolve the problem.

Sending Using a Long Distance Calling Code The telephone company or PBX system may use long distance calling codes on a phone line as a means to manage long distance calls. This service may extend to a fax phone line and for local phone calls as well. To use a calling code for faxing, enter a pause (or pauses, as necessary) in the dialing sequence to allow time for the phone system to distinguish between the phone number and the calling code. For example, if the calling code has to be entered after the phone number, press <Redial/Pause> after the long distance number and then enter the calling code.
Here is an example of a couple of variations that may be used by the phone company / PBX system. (For details on time sequence between the long distance number and when you must enter the calling code, please contact your phone company or telecommunications specialist.)
Long distance number: 212.555.1212
Calling code: 123456
Scenario One: 12125551212p123456 Scenario Two: 123456p12125551212

Note: The above scenarios include a pause (p) in between the dialing sequence. This pause may be necessary to allow the phone system to detect each set of dialing sequences. The pause length can be adjusted from one to nine seconds, the default is two seconds.

Tips to help you send a fax using a calling code.
  1. To send a fax using a calling code, it may be necessary to add a pause(s) before the next string of dialing digits. The above example shows how a calling code is used to dial a long distance fax number. To provide time before the calling code number is dialed and avoid misdialing, a pause should be added.

    Example: 12125551212p123456

    The number of pauses will depend on the phone / PBX system.

    It is suggested to confirm if the time before the next set of digits is dialed will always be constant. This way you can always use the same number of pauses for that dialing sequence. If needed, you can also change the pause [Pause time] length from its default 2 seconds.

  2. Connect a telephone to the fax machine.
    1. Connect a line cord from the telephone wall jack to the [L] jack (or item <1>) on the fax machine.

    2. Connect a line cord from the extension telephone port on the fax machine (top jack (or item <2>)) to an external telephone.

      mp530_telports.gif

  3. To send a fax using a calling code, it is recommended to dial using the attached telephone.
    1. Press the <FAX> button on the operator panel.
    2. Insert the documents face-up on the ADF.

      mp530_adfguides.jpg
    3. Pick up the handset of the attached telephone and confirm you hear a dial tone.
    4. Dial the fax destination number on the attached telephone.
    5. When you are prompted to enter your calling code, dial it on the attached phone.
    6. When you hear the remote fax machine's high-pitched receive tones, press <Color> to send a color fax or <Black> to send a black and white fax. The audio signal heard from the handset will be cut off.
    7. Hang up the handset.
    8. When the transaction is complete, the fax machine will return to standby mode.

Can't send out fax


Make sure the phone cord is connected to fax machine in the place marked LINE, then make sure the phone cord is connected to the wall jack. Pick up your handset and make sure you have a clear dial tone also. If you are dialing long distance make sure you have the long distance service.

I can't fax! BUSY/NO RESPONSE


go into menu
go to fax settings
find send
click auto not manual, please make sure that when you push the hook key you hear a dial tone. always reminder that every fax machine has the capablitiy of either dial or tone. now if everything is set up properly  the problem will be in the tx portion of the board. if you can link up with somebody close to you and try to transmit back and fourth that will let you know if it is their problem or your. it may not be your problem.
