    I have a separate fax line and it is set on the fax/phone mode.

    It says receive when I insert a document and dial the number and hit send.

    There is a dial tone when pick up a handset.

    I have no problem receiving faxes...

    Thank you

Hi,

Mostly this happens when the firmware of the machine is corrupted

Try reflashing it through a nearby service centre

Also check the document feeder

Please do check the settings whether it shows receive only mode!

I hope this helps u, ..... advance sorry otherwise

Does it say receive all the time or just when you insert a document and dial the number and hit send?
Have you tried another phone line?
When you pick up the handset do you hear a dial tone?

  • I don't know then. This is definitely a strange one for the books. Sounds like a bad problem with the modem or main board. I'd check with Canon to see if they have an repair/exchange program.

Do you have a seperate fax line? if so check the fax line.
also in the fax menu set up your fax to phone/fax mode, and set up all your fax info.
if you have distinq ring you need to set up your # of rings.

Everytime I am sending a fax i get the common error 20 02


Comm Error will show on the display if there is an issue on phoneline that were using.
First please check if the machine has a dial tone or try to call the fax # where you need to send the fax, just check if it's ringing. Second before loading the paper make sure that the display shows date & time. Then load the document in the tray the display should show enter fax # & start. Start dialing the # then hit start.

Hope this helps.

Transmit Error


To eliminate a machine problem, make a copy of something; you are using the scanner to verify if the mechanics are OK.

To eliminate a phone line problem, take the fax to another house or office and try there it again.

Recieve mode


Hi slickkitty
Only one press for each display,
When you press the FAX RECEIVE MODE button, the display should change each time you press. eg: AUTO, FAX ONLY
When you see the FAX ONLY, press the SET button and leave it like that. Don't try to do it when the fax rings. Do it when the fax machine is idle.
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0cm 5.4pt 0cm 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0cm; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} The following instruction is found in your Fax Manual.
Set the fax machine to FAX ONLY mode by
pressing {RECEIVE MODE} until the
following is displayed.
1 The display will show the number of
rings before the fax machine answers a
call in FAX ONLY mode.
2 Press {+} or {-} to change the ring
setting to 2 and press {SET}.
How to receive calls
Just leave it. When the other party sends a fax,
the fax machine will receive it automatically.


Hope this will help, if it helped you, please give a rating.
Good luck

I can send fax but cannot recieve one it just rings


My Mode was wrong. I switched it to telephone and fax (instead of manual). Then i set the ring to pick up on the third ring. now i dont have to be here to press start everytime a fax comes. I found all the information by searching for the manual on line it is under "Basic fax settings"

I can send but cannot recievefax. Fax is on SLEEP all the time.


The machine is set with the sleep mode as a default. The fax part can be changed to recieve a fax by pressing the fax mode button. Press it until it says Fax only, not F/T. F/T means Fax/Telephone. This mode would make it to where you have to pick up the reciever and press start when a fax comes in. The Fax only mode means it will pick up everytime a fax comes in automatically. Let me know if this was helpful. Please give my helping a rating. Thanks!

When I try to fax and hit the send fax button in the window recieve appears


Fax machines are ANALOG devices. DSL is digital.

Before throwing it out, it would take it somewhere where there is a regular phone line (Plain Old Telephone System([POTS] and test it.

Still can't get fax not to pick up when answering machine is connected.


if you have the fax-575 there should be a TAD setting.

This is the setting you would use if you're using an answering machine on the same phone line as your fax machine.

To set the Recieve Mode :

Press Recieve Mode. The LCD display shows your current selection.

Continue to press Recieve Mode until your new selection appears. After 2 seconds the screen returns to the date and time display, along with your new Recieve Mode setting.


The 4 Recieve modes are Fax Only, Fax/Tel, TAD:Answering Machine, Manual.

Hope this helps!!!

Paper feeding when printing recieved faxes


If this is primarily happening with receipts from one sending fax machine, the most likely cause is that the sending machine is transmitting an end code that causes this page to print.
