    It's not working. I tried to switch to fax/tel mode but this international fax just transfer to fax machine and blinking with data processing light on. It will disappear after few seconds. It just won't print out my fax. Does Canon imageClass MF4150 has problem with fax function? Will DSL filter affect my fax function? I can't seem to figure out what happen. It's brand new machine. Btw, I don't see any "auto receive" function in Canon imageClass MF4150.

    I have switch the machine to fax mode for receiving fax. However, after few second it switched to copy mode automatically. After several tries, monitor showed Remove MP Paper and the error right light was on.

    I followed up by removing MP papers, the try started working for nothing.

We have a Canon Image Class MF3240 Copier/Fax/printer/scanner. We are receiving error A4-load proper paper. We are loading with 8 1/2 by 11 paper. What is this error telling me?


The problem is on the computer, not on the printer.

"A4" is a paper size, just like "Letter" and "Legal".

You probably have your software application, such as Excel, Word, etc., set to paper size = A4.

Do this in your program on the computer:
[File]
[Page Setup]
[Size] "8 1/2 x 11"

... and print your document again.

Fax won't fax


We have the same problem and the fax will send and receive only if the printer cord is pulled out of the back of the printer. I just keep the printer cord pulled out and put it back in only when I need to print a document from the comptuer.

Lexmark 8300 print/scan/fax


There are sensors in the document feeder that detect the width and length of the paper being copied or faxed. Try getting a can of compressed air and go nuts blowing all the dust out of the feeder, if you spray everything you can get to, you will probably blow clean the sensors. Just an educated guess.
Good luck,

I can only receive one page each time


Make sure that the paper size set on the machine matches the paper that you have in the cassette. Also make sure that the sender is not sending legal-size documents if you are using standard size paper.

Is the machine giving any type of error message or code when the error light comes on?

Repeated Fax TX report printing


Solution #3 solved it for me. The report kept printing over and over, so I used the menus (roughly) mentioned in Soluton #3 by guest.

My problem was the printer was trying to print the TX Error Report with the image attached. That made the report too big for standard sized paper, so the machine kept telling me to check the paper size, and I'd hit 'OK', and that made the machine try to print the report again, for it continued to think it had not printed a complete report.

Here's what I did...

Go to: Fax Menu
Arrow right ( >) to Maintenance/Settings, hit, 'OK'
Arrow right to (>) to Device Settings, hit 'OK',
Fax Settings, hit 'OK',
Arrow down ( v ) to TX Settings, hit 'OK',
Arrow down ( v ) to TX Report, OK
Select 'Print error only', hit 'OK',
Attach TX image, Select 'NO', hit 'OK"

With the instruction to not attach the TX image, it will print out the error report without the TX image, the report will fit on the paper, and it will clear this problem.

Good luck!

MF4150 Printing all Black - pages covrerd in black


Yes. Exchange it while you can. It will more difficult after the first 30 days. Could be a toner cartridge not seated properly. Or could be a high voltage power supply.
