Question about Canon LaserClass 2050 Plain Paper Fax

1 Answer

Out-going Fax fails to complete (Canon LC 2050P)

Using either the manual or the auto mode, more often than not the already scanned page sits in the machine, then "times-out" and the TX is not completed. There appears to be no pattern to this, as sometimes it will transmit OK. Receiving is not a problem. It is connected to a dedicated fax-line (Vonage). Help (or suggestions) would be appreciated.

    The out-going fax number appear to be totally random. The copier function works as advertised.
    Thanks

Two things: Can you make a copy without this happening? And, Does this happen with certain specific fax number or randomly?

    Victor, Either you have a noise problem on your phone line (Pick up the handset and listen for static), or the numbers you are calling don't always pick up. This is a common occurance.

Power failure when scanning!


This sounds like you equipment is overheating and is shuting down on protection mode. Is the Canon in an enclosed environment or sitting on something that is already warm? Try moving the Canon to another area. Good Luck. George

Message states the power to zone 2 is not activated when trying to listen to zone 2 speakers. Nothing in my manual about this message. How do I activate power to zone 2 on a tx-sr601


Page 77:

"Not available in Zone 2 mode" Setting not allowed because the Zone 2 mode is turned on.

How do I adjust the balance on my onkyo receiver?


You don't. Once the speakers are adjusted relative to each other using the test tone that's it. The modern presumption is that you're sitting in the sweet spot at all times and all program material is perfectly recorded.

The manual is available at retrevo.com for free.

Unable to fax full document


These units usually scan to memory then memory to phone, if there is a lot of items in memory then you may have to clear the memory, and try again, if this is a first, then the machine may not have enough Fax memory to complete the task. consult your manual, you can either add memory or switch the machine to fax directly on these jobs, this is slower than using memory but should get the job done.


hope this is of some help.

The screen keeps on showing " memory full".


Hi,
I can advise you on the 'memory full' problem, mate.

If you get a MEMORY FULL message while scanning the first page of a fax, press Stop to cancel the scan. If you get a MEMORY FULL message while scanning in a subsequent page, you’ll have the option to press Start to transmit the pages scanned
so far, or to press Stop to cancel the operation. In this case, send the fax by the Manual Transmission.
Depending on your typical faxes, MEMORY FULL errors can occur frequently. If this happens, change the Memory Transmission setting back to OFF.
To do this:

Press Function/Set, 3, 9.
This should take you to MEMORY TX
and MEMORY TX: ON?
Then press either the left or the right arrow (< or >) to switch on or off, and press Function/Set.
For the next fax transmission only, press < or > to select
NEXT FAX ONLY and press Function/Set.

This will mean you don't add any more to the memory and may be able to send faxes. There is a possibility that you will only be able to fax using manual transmission, but at least you should be able to use the machine to fax at all!

I apologise if the jargon is confusing, just try to go through the process one step at a time and you should be fine.

Hope this helps :)
