Likely your purge unit needs cleaning...
Make sure by printing out a test page from printer (not from computer).
If test page is good, you have a software issue. If test page is bad, you need to clean your head and/or purge unit.

The fax transmission speed was set to 14400, we have solved the problem by putting down transmission speed to 4800 and now emission works without troubles.

did you remember to remove the pull tab to allow the new toner to be utilized? it's either that or you just have a defective toner cartridge which if you replace will take care of the issue. If you have used canned air to blow out your machine it is possible that the toner dust has been blown into the laser housing and fogging up the mirrors that it uses but that's kinda a last resort check...

Have you performed a nozzle test? If one or more of the colors is missing when you do the nozzle test, the printhead itself is likely in need of replacement.
Before considering replacment, perform a clean on the printer. Due to variations between mac and pc, please see your documentation / support files on how to perform the clean on your printer.
After performing the clean, again perform the nozzle check to see if the problem is resolved.
If still not resolved, remove and re-install any cartridges you recently replaced to make certain they are installed correctly.

I use a no. 4 pan head screw to drill a SMALL hole in the top of the ink cartridge, about 1/4" in back from the front edge, so you can reseal it with the screw when done.
Take a small syringe with a short needle and pull the plunger back.
Insert the needle into hole and hold cartridge in place, IN THE PRINT HEAD, while pushing the plunger down to "pressure feed" the ink into the print head.
Reseal the ink tank with the screw when done.
I think the problem stems from the new or refilled ink tank NOT making a good seal with the print head and then there is a vacuum leak at the joint.
I have done this many times with my various Canon printers with removable ink tanks and it almost invaribly works for me.
I also refil the ink tanks IN THE PRINTER rather than taking them out to help prevent the vacuum break between the print heand and the ink tank.
It also helps to use a photo printing program to "print" out a black, red, blue or yellow page (use whichever color you are having trouble with) to help start the ink flowing again as well.
It does not have to be a full 8 x 10 size, just something about 4 x 6 to help reestablish the ink flow.

Don't worry about the memory being full, the problem is the ink, and once the machine is able to print the FAX will empty memory by printing the faxes out. This might sound bad but I have seen this happen, when you unpacked the new ink cartridge, did you pull off the little plastic protector? And is the paper loaded?
