Question about Canon FAXPHONE B640 Plain Paper Bubblejet

1 Answer

In Use message

I went to use my fax today and after I tried to fax and it didn't go through it said In Use. I hit start and it says receive but nothing happens. Then I pressed Stop and the machine starts ringing. It says hang up phone but there is no phone attached. Actually I have the phone cord disconnected right now and it does the same thing. I then hit Stop and it goes back to the message In Use. How do I get rid of it?

    Message alternates from, "IN USE", to the, "current date FAX ONLY". Can not get any buttons/selections to respond.

    I left my fax machine unplugged for over 8 hours and was able to get one fax through before it gave me the In Use message again. I unplugged it again for over 8 hours and just tried it. I still have the In Use message.

It sounds as if your unit is busy trying to perform a function and is loading RAM to its max. Unplugging the unit allowed the electrolytic capacitors to fully discharge and clear this RAM. It was only temporary because the unit filled up the RAM when you plugged it back in and when it did, the unit became inoperable once again. The problem is finding out what functions, or checks, the unit is performing to fill its' RAM. It appears to be a memory problem at this point. What is causing this to happen will take further troubleshooting.

Fax machine is able to receive faxes, but not able to send them. There is a "No Response" message every time I try to send a document.


Hi, i think your fax machine works fine, A "no response" message indicates that the receiver should accept your fax by hitting on the start button (normally its a green button) for you to able to send a fax or if no one in your friends location is receiving it. In this case you might as well set your fax machine to auto receive fax, defends on your fax machine's model. i hope this helps.

I using a roller fax machine. today i had fax a documents that have 4 pages and i put together and let it run auto. i confirmed that i fax once only but the receiver received the first page more than 10...


By "roller fax" if you mean auto document feeder, so what's the problem? If you didn't see each of the 4 pages feed into the machine one at a time then what happened at the other end could be because something happened at your end. It's the reason we scan and email most critical documents today.

Canon 1023if not receiving faxes automatically


Is this fax line shared with the phone? I believe there is a distictive ring setting in the add'l functions area under communication settings then receive settings. you would need to select a ring pattern different so the fax can tell between which types of calls it is receiving.

It has worked for me in serveral other installs

Hope this helps

Cannot receive faxes...... display on the message panel sleep MNL


The machine is set for manual (MNL) answering - hit "receive mode" until is says "fax only" or "Fax/tel" etc. depending on what mode you want the machine to work in again.
Just resolved the same problem on mine.

Sending Faxes


When the last page of your document has been sent successfully, the machine beeps and returns to Standby mode. When something goes wrong while sending your fax, an error message appears on the display. If you receive an error message, press Stop/Clear to clear the message and try to send the document again. You can set your machine to print a confirmation report automatically each time sending a fax is completed. If you get the error message write it down it should always supply an error message if the fax did not go through.
