The KX-FM131BX, KX-FM131CX and KX-FM131AL do not connect directly to a computer. They only have RJ-11 connections (to the phone line (line in) for all models and to another phone or answering machine (in some cases).

To send and receive faxes with a computer, you need some sort of USB or network port on the machine. Brother has some that may fit your needs: is one of their lower end models.

I hope this helps.

Look on the back of the printer and enter the service tag number here;\
It usually gets the original part number for you. Or call Dell directly: 1-877-717-3355

This past Saturday we just had a similiar problem on our church HP printer. Different number than yours, but most likely the same solution. It jammed when the last person used it, so they removed the crinkled paper. Or so they thought - there was a piece maybe 1-1/2" triangular shape stuck on top. I liked to never found it, I looked even with a flashlight 4 times before I caught just a hint of white way up there. If that is not it, there could be a door you have not opened. Most of them open top, back, front. Ours also opens on the side. The back opens in two places. Occasionally there can be a piece of paper you can only see from one door.

This will occur if the heads are unable to move.

Try to press and hold the stop/clear button.

If that does not work unplug the printer for about 10 seconds and plug it back in.

If all of your other equipment is working fine at the time you have issues with your printer then the folks at Canon are full of sh--! The issue is with the printer and you don't have to be a rocket scientist to come to that conclusion. Try to reset your printer to factory defaults to see if that solves the issue. And if you do not find the reset in your manual contact Canon to have them give you the code or reset protocol for your unit. Good luck.

That is it. Scanners are notorious for needing another driver when you use 64 bit OS.

You say you have checked properties etc but have you selected mp tray from printing preferences in the driver. Remember the driver overrides the printers own settings.

You may have a defective cartridge. I'd take them back to where you bought them for an exchange.
