"Check paper size" means that the paper in the machine doesn't match the size selected in the setup.

To change the paper size:
1. Press the Function button.
2. Press the Data Registration button.
3. Press Set button.
4. Use up or down arrows until you see PRINTER SETTINGS.
5. Press Set button.
6. Use up or down arrows until you see PAPER SIZE.
7. Press Set button.
8. Use up or down arrows until you see type of paper in the paper tray (LTR, LGL, A4).
9. Press Set button.
10. Press Stop/Reset button.

Machine should now print out the fax that was received in memory.

It sounds like you have some bad jobs stuck inside the fax's memory. First print out a memory reference report. It will show you any bad jobs stuck in the system. Delete the memory reference jobs. Then go into set up and you want to turn off the option to store failed transmisions.

The system should store jobs while it is waiting for paper. If you have a lot of stored jobs and the memory is full it will not receive any more jobs until it can print out what is stored - so it would be normal for it not to recieve new jobs until all of the old jobs are printed.

Not able to receive Faxes from a Canon Faxphone L80

Describe 'Lots of noise'.....was it static? Or high pitched varying tones (also known as handshake) Normally the two beeps are after the 'handshake tones' which means that the fax is awaiting an answer from sending machine. If you don't mind, email me your fax number so that I can hear exactly what you are hearing.

Cannot receive faxes

Make sure that the telephone line from the wall is plugged into "LINE" and not "PHONE" on the fax machine. You might also call the fax number from a different phone to see if you can hear the fax tones.

Most probably you have the machine set to "manual receive." Change the receive mode to "auto" or "Fax" mode.
