The setting for resolution was too high. Set back to basic and fax went through--no more problems.

Need to know how to fax from mcf 210c


How to enter Fax mode
Before sending faxes, make sure (Fax) is illuminated in
green. If not, press (Fax) to enter Fax mode. The default
setting is Fax.
How to dial
You can dial in any of the following different ways.
Manual dialing
Press all of the digits of the phone or fax number.
Setup Send
3 - 2 SETUP SEND
Speed-Dialing
Press Search/Speed Dial, #, and then the two digit Speed-Dial
number. (See Storing Speed-Dial numbers on page 5-1.)
Search
You can search for names you have stored in the Speed-Dial
memories. Press Search/Speed Dial and the navigation keys to
search. (See Storing Speed-Dial numbers on page 5-1.)
* To search alphabetically, you can use the dial pad to enter the first
letter of the name you are looking for.
Fax Redial
If you are sending a fax manually and the line is busy, press
Redial/Pause, and then press Black Start or Color Start to try
again. If you want to make a second call to the last number dialed,
you can save time by pressing Redial/Pause and Black Start or
Color Start.
Redial/Pause only works if you dialed from the control panel.
If you are sending a fax automatically and the line is busy, the MFC
will automatically redial one time after five minutes.
If the LCD shows Not Registered when you enter the
Speed-Dial number, a number has not been stored for it.

Color fax transmission
Your MFC can send a color fax to machines that support this feature.
However, color faxes cannot be stored in the memory. When you
send a color fax, the MFC will send it in real time (even if Real Time
TX is set to Off).

No print on copies or faxes


This is a clogged print head. This happens if the printer has been off for a long time or if the cartridge was removed and the unit left empty for any time.
Take out the cartridge and press the print part on a piece of paper. Any black lines? If not, you will need a new cartridge. Wiping the print head gently with a Q-tip moistened with PURE alcohol (99%) may restore printing.

OUR FAX SAYS 98% MEMORY FULL SOMETIMES WHEN THEY TRY TO FAX SOMETHING. HOW DO I CLEAR THE MEMORY? NATALIE


Press Menu, 2, 5, 2. The screen prompts you to choose a fax setting. Press <-- or --> to select OFF then press SET. If there are faxes in memory when you turn Fax Storage to OFF, the LCD prompts you to erase faxes in memory. If you press 1, all fax data is erased and Fax Storage is turned OFF.


You may want to enable Real Time TX so you can send fax without using memory. (Under FAX-SETUP SEND-REAL TIME TX)

You may also disable Fax Storage if you don't want to store incoming faxes in memory for remote retrieval (Under FAX- REMOTE FAX OPT-FAX STORAGE)

For effective use of the memory, you may also clear the caller IDs stored in the memory. Press MENU, 2, 0, 2 Press the arrow keys to display # then press CLEAR.


Hope this helps!

Can not send more than 99 pages as PC fax.


Like every fax machine, there is a limit to how many pages it can keep in memory before needing to be cleared. Yours is apparently only 99. If you want to send more than 99 pages at a time without clearing the memory, i'd look for another printer.

Unable to enter faxes while the machine is either sending or rece

Real Time Transmission
When you are sending a fax, the machine will scan originals into memory before
sending. Then, as soon as the phone line is free, the machine will start dialing and
sending the fax. If memory becomes full, the machine will send the document in real
time (even if REAL TIME TX is set to OFF).
Sometimes you may want to send an important document immediately, without
waiting for memory transmission. You can set REAL TIME TX to ON.
1 Place the original face down in the ADF.
2 Press Menu, 2, 2, 6.
3 To change the default setting, and then
press or to select ON (or OFF) and
then press Set. Go to Step 5—OR—For
the next fax transmission only, press or to select NEXT FAX ONLY,
and then press Set.
4 For the next fax only, press or to select ON (or OFF), and then press Set.
5 Press 1 if you want to select additional settings. The LCD returns to the SETUP SEND
menu—OR—Press 2 if you are finished choosing settings, and then go to Step 6.
6 Enter fax number and then press Fax Start.

Canon MIXPA MP530 Memory is full


I found this in a forum and I suspect it will work, remember that you'll need to clear the internal memory chip by unplugging the printer:

I got the dreaded "memory full" problem with my mp530 this morning. Couldn't FAX because the mp530 thought its memory was full even though it showed no documents in memory. The Canon site lists this symptom with a solution of 'turn off the unit, wait 10 seconds, then turn it back on'. Well that didn't work, so after multiple tries I noticed a post on this board (not really related) that suggested turning off the unit, unplugging it and waiting 10 minutes -- and that did the trick.
