Re: incorrect paper size

You may have a fax in memory that requires a larger size. Try putting legal in the tray and see if it prints out anything. Also, look in the set up menu to see if there is an "auto reduction" mode. That will make any over sized incoming faxes automatically print out on the size paper you have in the tray.

Did you trying hitting an Ok button, green button, etc to confirm legal size paper, maybe it wants you to confirm paper size. Also legal is 8.5x14, did you select legal or enter the size as a custom page?

Everytime I receive a fax, the first page prints out then I get a "Check paper size" error

Sounds like you have the paper size in the tray set incorrectly. For example, it may be set to legal, but you have letter size in the tray. This would cause that message to display. Check your setup options for the paper setting.

Not receiving faxes

Folio is not what you want. The usual is letter (LTR) or 8.5 x 11. You may have to check the settings to set the default paper size.

Incorrect Paper Size Canon super G3 fax

Sometimes turning it off and on again fixes it. However, we started having a problem where it would print out one page after you powered it back on again and then give the "incorrect paper size" message. I've found that by either holding down the green button or repeatedly pressing it while it powers back on (and held until the first page prints) fixes the problem.
