Question about Canon PC-1080F Plain Paper Laser Fax

1 Answer

Adf sporadically pulls fax/ copy through top

If I'm sending more than a single page fax, I have to stand at the machine & make sure it goes through. Should I just replace the roller bar/ paper feed wheels?? They seem clean enough, but the machine is going on 7 yrs old.

Cannot print screen shows ADF.what does this mean?


Hi!

ADF stands for Automatic Document Feeder and it means the device mounted on top of your pixma that allows multiple pages to be scanned/copied/faxed one at a time automatically.

Now why does it not print? The machine "believes" some document is inserted in the ADF in order to be scanned/copied/faxed, and wants that operation to be completed before it accept any print job. Please remove, if present, any paper from the ADF. Maybe its only some small piece of broken paper or even dust on the sensor in the ADF.

Good luck!

When I fax it copies a black line is on the page. And when I copy from the top part it copies a black line. How can I fix that?


are you getting black lined copies while you are trying to send a fax or black lined images are obtained at the receiving end. Is there any problems while copying from platen glass. if it's ok, then check if there is any thing on the stream reading glass (the small sized glass plate meant for ADF) & clean it.

Able to receive fax but cant send


sleep mode is just a status of the machine when it is in idle mode.you cannot turn this off however you can delay the time before the unit goes into a sleep mode.it has nothing to do when you are sending out faxes.so here are a few things you need to check when sending a fax (1)dial tone by pressing hook/hold button (2) insert the doc into the adf, make sure it will change to "enter fax # and start,or copy press copy (3) dial the number (4) wait for fax tones of the receiving unit before you press start. now if you can hear an operator on the line,that has to be verified with your phone company since brother machine does not restrict incoming and outgoing faxes UNLESS that is restricted from your phone line.

No copy and send fax from adf unit


First try reseting the unit by holding the * key and the enter button and the same time turn it on until it starts beeping. This will rest the machine. If this does not work. you need ADF rollers the can be purchased for 20 to 25 bucks
