Troubleshooting print problems with the fax machine

In the event that your Canon fax machine beeps while printing, you may need to clear out any paper jam. In the event that nothing will print at all from your unit, ensure the unit is accurately connected to a live power source. Check to ensure you expelled the plastic seal from the ink cartridge and that you installed it accurately. Your proprietor’s manual will have guidelines on installation. If the printout is misrepresented somehow, check to ensure that the print media was stacked rightly in the multi-purpose tray and the paper delivery opening is clear of any obstacle. If your printout has vertical white streaks crosswise over it, you may need to redistribute the toner inside the cartridge. If this does not tackle your concern, try replacing the toner cartridge.


Troubleshooting faxing issues

On the off chance that your Canon fax machine won’t send a fax, check to ensure the machine is set for the right telephone line type. Guarantee that the document is stacked rightly and the speed dialling code you put in was registered accurately. See that you dialled the right number and that the phone line is working. In the event that the other party’s fax machine is out of paper, your document in all likelihood can’t be sent. What’s more, the other party’s fax machine must be good with your fax machine. Your owner’s manual will have data on compatible machines, and also how to check for the other said steps.


Troubleshooting receiving issues

If your fax machine is not receiving faxes automatically, guarantee you have set your machine to automatically get them. Likewise, the unit may already have a document put away in its memory and there is no more memory accessible. Check whether an error occurred amid reception by checking the LCD screen for a message. If none of these is your concern, ensure the multi-purpose tray isn’t empty and that the telephone line is connected legitimately.
