Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority.

Sorry to hear you’re having trouble.

Can you tell me a bit more about the problem please:

1) Is this a dedicated fax line, or a shared voice/fax line?
2) Is this a landline from the local phone/cable company, or a VOIP service (vonage/magicjack/etc)
3) Do you have dsl service on the same line?

4) Are you able to RECEIVE faxes?

on my printer I was gonna reset printer to original options if I could
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
are you there
Expert:  Nathan replied 1 year ago.

Yes, I am here, please reply only once and give me an opportunity to respond. When you send multiple messages you get pushed down the queue and that delays the process further.

I need to know if you are trying (or able) to either send or receive at this point.

No option or setting would prevent you from sending a fax.

Some options would impact receiving, so I need to know what you can do at this point.

I am thinking options on fax are messed up
Expert:  Nathan replied 1 year ago.

First, can you please check the connections - make sure the cord from the wall phone jack is plugged to the #1 line port on the back of the canon

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
that's been checked
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
its the settings I think
Expert:  Nathan replied 1 year ago.

That is not possible.

There is no setting that would prevent you from being able to SEND.

There are settings that could interfere with receiving, which is why I keep asking you to test that.

Until you do so, it is not possible to isolate the cause of the issue.

Were you able to further test receiving?
