That's an old faxphone (it came out in 1991). If it works, it faxes only -- no printer options to connect to your computer. It uses thermal fax paper from a roll, about $10 a roll if you can find it.

You're much better off getting yourself a current model (Canon Fax JX-210P for example) for well under $100. It prints on plain paper, can be connected to your computer to function as a printer, and can be a stand-alone copier.

Check that the tel line cable is connected to the correct hole in the nachine. It may have been moved. It should be in the one marked 'L' or 'LINE'. Use another fax lead to see if the lead is faulty. Otherwise you may have a faulty LJU board which requires replacement and will cost more if not on warranty, than the machine is worth.

It would be helpfulful if your query listed the OS of the computer connected to the printer as failure to do so makes a respondant have to address multiple solutions. The solution common to both Windows and Mac computers generally involves removal of the printer from listings as a device attached to the computer followed by reinstallation of the printer. With the Apple computers:
  1. Click the Apple icon in the top left of the screen.
  2. Click System Preferences.
  3. Click Print & Fax.
  4. If the padlock in the bottom left is locked: Click it, enter your password and click OK.
  5. Click the - button. to remove the printer and the + to add it again leaving the options on default.
These common procedures are listed on: https://www.fixkb.com/2009/02/mac-canon-printer-error-306_1485.html Basically, after removing the printer programmatically and detaching it from the computer, reattach it and follow the installation dialogue boxes. If there is a glitch (failure to install), try installing the drivers manually. If the OS is Windows then remove the printer using the printers and scanners menu, then just follow the add printer dialogues. As with the Mac's, if installation fails, try installing the drivers manually. The 306 error refers to a "communications" error between computer and printer.

This error code is a diffuse code meaning that there was a temperature rise failure detected in the fuser unit. The best solution is to call a local Canon authorized repair facility and have them send a technician to service the unit. I provide links to several videos which show how involved the process is to clear the error. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXnRGhBvV08 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABDciNqOUkA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kT6AOPiEMGE
