Some things to check are these.
1 Make sure your phone line is plugged into the Line slot and not the slot for a phone or answering machine.
2. Make sure the machine ECM mode is ON.
3. Make sure Secure Recieve is OFF.
4. Make sure the JUNK MAIL feature is OFF.
There also may be a memory reset procedure for you fax machine to clear and reset the memory.
There is a slight chance that your problem is the phone line. if you have a phone to plug into it, check for static on your phone line.
You can also try replacing the cord from the phone jack to the machine, they get noisy and cause problems at times.
Other phone line issues may be low line voltage, low line current and DB loss, that has to be checked by the phone company.

Canon mf5770 not receiving faxes

Most fax machines allow you to set the number of times the phone rings before it automatically answers the phone. So if you phone goes to voice mail after 4 rings and the fax machine is set to start the fax after the 5th ring it will never receive the faxes because the call went to voice mail. Good Luck

Hi my canon mx310 will not fax any ideas

disconnect all equipments using the phone line (everything)
connect the fax directly to a wall jack (a working one)

Send a one page black and white text fax to 1-888-473-2963

When your fax is received by the Test Fax Service, a return fax will be generated to you within five minutes confirming that fax was received. This verifies that you can both send and receive a fax with your fax machine.
