Question about Canon CFX-L4000 Plain Paper Laser Fax

1 Answer

Slow receipt of fax

We recently moved our offices and are still using our old L4000 fax. When we are receiving faxes it seems to take forever. Do we have to change a setting? We have no manual which seems to be a common problem. Any suggestions on the speed of this thing or where to get a manual? Thanks in advance for any help...

Presumably, no -one has changed any settings on the machine. If the problem occurs on all received faxes, I would suspect the tel line. The machine automatically slows down the data reception to the slowest speed necessary to receive clean data. What that means is, there is unacceptable noise somewhere on the line, due to a bad connection between the machine and the tel pbx. To check this, try a different location, either the previous one or even a different jack in the office.

The instruction manuals of fax machines are typically large and complex books. Often there are many options to consider. Mostly the machines can be used successfully without much reference to the manual but when there is a problem the question machine or operator fault can only be determined by thoroughly reading it.

To a large extent whether a fax call is picked up or not depends on the settings (including answering machine), the quality of the phone line and connection and the machine sending the fax as well as the receiving machine.

My fax machine will mostly automatically receive a fax but it seems to miss the important ones and I have to answer the ringing phone, hear the fax tone and press the manual fax button.

I strongly suspect the problem mostly lies with the sending machines - if they are fax machines the results were much better than from a computer being used as a fax machine and while a fax machine will send a receipt, a computer doesn't seem capable of doing so.

Fax will only send and not receive

Call your fax machine from a regular phone and listen for fax tones. Sender may be dialing the wrong number. Is your phone line DSL?
