Your fax machine (L120) use dry toner and not ink cartridges, so it doesn't have printhead. If the copies are dirty or bad but received faxes and printed documents are OK, then You have to clean the scanner unit (it's above the plain paper storage and can be opened with small handle).

Canon L120 fax, Hang up the Phone message

Make sure that the phone line coming from the wall jack is inserted in the port with the "L" next to it (I think it's the bottom of the three). If you put it in the port with the picture of the phone next to it (which is for an extension phone or answering machine), the L120 thinks that the receiver is off the hook of the extension phone.

Can not receive fax

Make sure the fax is set to receive automatically. The receive mode must be set to one of the following modes: Fax Only, Fax/Tel Auto Sw, or Ans Machine. If it is set for Answering Machine, be sure the machine is connected to the fax, turned on, and contains a recorded outgoing message.
If you need further assistance, please post back. Otherwise, thank you for using and rating FixYa!

Not receive

I'm not familiar with the B120, but if you have an L120 the manuals are available here. The Starter Guide will explain receive mode options and setup instructions. The Advanced Guide will provide troubleshooting guidance.
