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.

Can fax to a toll free number but not to a local number

The easiest way to experiment with this problem is to plug in a phone in place of the fax.Take the list of numbers and try dialing them with the phone.Many local carriers now require for you do dial a "1" before the exchange,even if you are in the same area code.(I live in the D.C. area,and we have to dial "1" first).I believe adding a 1 to your local fax numbers will correct this issue.If not,try dialing another number at your location.If you can call one of your other numbers OK,but cannot dial to a local number even when dialing 1-area code-exchange-last four digits,this may be an issue with your long distance carrier.(Anytime you dial one before the other ten digits,it goes through along distance carrier,even on local calls).

My hp 1040 will not pick up fax after the fifth ring answering machine picks after forth ring can't tell the between phone call or a fax used to before changed date on answering machine fax quite working

Set rings to answer
You can select the number of rings that will occur before the fax answers an incoming call. If you are using your machine as both a telephone and a fax machine, we suggest you set the ring count to at least 4 to give you time to answer.
TIP: HP 1050 Fax: The Toll Saver function for the Digital Message Center interacts with Rings to Answer. See Toll Saver on page 40. If you have the HP 1050 Fax and have Toll Saver turned on, set the Rings to Answer to 2.
1. Press Menu repeatedly until BASIC FAX displays and press Start/Enter.
Rings to Answer will display.
2. Press Start/Enter.
3. Enter the number of rings you want (2-7) and press Start/Enter.
The HP Fax rings the set number of times and then answers. It then produces a different sounding ring to alert you to which type of call is incoming.
• The additional ring may occur once for a fax call
• The additional ring occurs 5 times for a voice call. After the 5 additional rings, the answering machine will answer.

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.

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.

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.

I need help

Pick up the handset and try to manually dial the number (make sure you're dialing a 1 if required). If you cannot, then the problem is with the phone company (perhaps there is a block of long distance calls of some sort). See if you can send to a local number. You're information is a bit sketchy. Also, print out a transmission report and let me know what the error numbers are. let me know one way or the other Ed
