Canon mf5700 fax

Our canon mf5700 fax was working just fine up until a few days ago. No fax will send & when some one tries to fax me they are getting an error message. Could some one have changed my settings by accident or something? Do you know what I can check for? I have unplugged machine & plugged back in. I have tried to check settings but I am unsure what to look for. The printer/coppier is working fine.

Probably some interference on your phone line...try a line filter.

SOURCE: unable to resolve 'cartridge has been changed' error message

turns out the wrong paper size was selected in the print setup. I set it to Postcard (4x6) and it began working perfectly again. Hooray.

SOURCE: Activity report for fax send 2 month ago (Canon MP830)

Page 104 & 105 talk about the activity report. You can have it print out every 20 transactions but you can also look at the log as a whole report as well. The manual for your printer is located here:

Click on Drivers and downloads. Go down to the guides and manuals section. click on this PDF file: mp830_ug_us_v4.pdf

Make sure you have adobe reader on your computer and check out pages 104 and 105. They talk alot about the activity report.

I have a cannon pixma ip 2700 printer. The printer was working fine up until a few days ago. Now it is saying that I have error #5200. How can I fix it and get the printer to qork again?

Error 5200 indicated an error with the print head. Try to cleaning all contacts on the print head as well as on the connecting pad. And also the power needs to be restated, so do it and try it again, just take out the USB, the power from the wall outlet and the USB in the printer itself.

Hello, My nokia 6760 has suddenly stopped sending messages, all the messages just sit in the outbox. Ive had the phone for about 4 months and its been fine untill a few days ago when messages were no...

I have the exact same error. I called my service provider today and they gave me the message centre number, i re-entered that into my phone and it didnt work. They then advised me it was a network error. He told me to call back in a few days to see if they had fixed it. Perhaps try call your network provider as well. I'll see if mine works and get back to you.

Have canon mf5700 says check paper size. Powering off doesn't help Changing trays does not help. After powering on again it prints a test page and then gives the warning again.

You need to remove paper tray, and unplug canon. Leave it this way overnight, and in the morning, reinsert the paper tray, and plug back it. This should effectively reset the machine, and clear that error. It worked for me!

Can receive a fax, but cannot send fax.

I was told by Xerox support tech that he thought it was the fact that we do not have a dedicated analog phone line, but the fact remains we can receive faxes but cannot send them. The only fax that will send is directly to Xerox support.???. The machine was working fine, faxing (sending and receiving), until about a week or so ago, when we had a repairman here on the printer. He told me to report the problem to our telephone repair service. He is coming out today! I'll let you know.

Actionguy describes a solution where you: hit menu then # to get into service mode, scrolled to CLEAR, hit set, scroll to ALL and hit set again
You can also clear the printer's memory of the task that's causing the problem by pressing on the 'eye' button that gives the list of print/copy/fax tasks. press OK to select what kind of task you have, then choose your task to delete it. Finally press OK and Yes (minus) to clear it. Then, you can unplug the printer briefly to clear the error and it will start without the bad job and the error message.

Can't print to mac wirelessly (could do it a few days ago)

I had the same problem until recently. You have to install the drivers FROM THE CD that came with the printer, instead of selecting the drivers from the default list. Then, when selecting which printer driver to use (you'll have two options) choose Canon IJ and NOT Canon MX310 series. This is a problem with their MX310 driver, which is solved using a default/generic Canon InkJet (hence, the IJ) driver. Hope this helps!
P.S. This only works on Mac OS X. I have yet to figure out how to print wirelessly through Vista. Will keep you posted.
