I finally figured mine out. It definitely has to do with the fax function as I could do everything except fax. Mine was the phone being off the hook (looking at the back off the printer the little phone symbol) even though the phone line coming into the machine was unplugged (L symbol on the back of the printer). Hopefully yours will be as easy.

It's NOT 'Stupid Canon Printers!!!' (Silly!) :-)

Step One: I read response by 'Airxpress'.
Step Two: I then turned my Cannon Printer around and unplugged the telephone connection. I then discovered that my phone was off the hook and also discovered, THEN, that, for me, that THIS was the cause.

I recommend that you:

1. Place your phone back on the hook (even IF you do not use that phone except when faxing, as I do).

2. If that doesn't work, try disconnecting your phone line from the printer and then reconnect.

I hope that helps you!
It did for me.
And.......THANK YOU 'airxpress'!
