I had this problem too. I discovered that my printer, with it's regular picture, had somehow been renamed as a Canon PIXMA Wireless Fax even though I already had it listed. Not only that, my Canon wireless printer was no longer listed. I deleted the new fax that was also listed as my default printer, and searched for my printer. I made it my default printer again and all worked as it should. I have a feeling this is happening with the latest driver updates.

Can you set the Canon PIXMA MX 870 to print a confirmation page after every fax sent?


Yes. Press Setup and navigate (right/left arrows) to Device Settings. Then press OK. Next navigate to Fax Settings (up/down arrows) followed by OK. Select TX Report (again the up/down arrows followed by OK). Select the Print for each TX option (up/down arrows) and press OK again. Then press Fax to return to the standby mode.

I hope this helps.

Canon pixma mx 300 won't send or receive fax


Dear friend,
it's very important to connect your MX 300 with the telephone line the right way! Please read once more the part "Preparing the machine for fax" in the chapter "Faxing" of the MX 300 User's Guide and mind the hint "Important: Do not connect the machine and external devices in parallel to the same telephone line using a splitter (A). The machine may not operate properly."

Greetings from Cologne (Germany) to the UK!

Will not print a send fax comes up


Well, yes it is as well. Check the printer settings from 'control panel'; you may have activated the 'send fax' option instead of print. Make sure that the print mode is the default one.
