Make sure that the receiving fax machine is compatible with your machine (For example, check to see if the receiving fax machine is a G3 fax machine). Make sure that there`s enough paper loaded in the receiving fax machine`s paper tray. Make sure that the receiving fax machine is not busy.
Check the fax connection

Check for phone line connection issues that might cause fax receiving to fail. Confirm the fax cords are in the correct ports: The phone line should be connected to the 1-LINE port and the answering machine, if used, should be connected to the 2-EXT port on the back of the printer.

Check2 Make sure printer is properly connected to computer. When the printer is connected to your computer with a USB cable, check the following: If you are using a relay device such as a USB hub, disconnect it, connect the printer directly to the computer, and retry the printing.

Send a test fax to 1‐855‐FX‐CANON (1‐855‐392‐2666). Once our service receives your fax, a test page will be sent back to the fax number programmed into your machine.
To test a fax line, make sure your fax machine is plugged into the line. Send someone a fax and ask the recipient to report whether the fax arrives and looks normal. Then, have someone send you a test fax and confirm the fax arrives and prints as it should.
This mode allows you to quickly recall the target function when using a fax.
It`s usually because the printhead inside your printer is clogged or dried out. Like with most printers, Canon printheads can clog due to ink or dust drying up and collecting in the nozzle.
To test a fax machine simply fax to somebody else with a fax machine – and have them send a reply fax back to you. When sending the fax, turn on the confirmation page feature – a successful confirmation page shows that the fax machine on the other end has successfully received the message.

my fax-2840, give me a error that says print unable EC.
ANSWER : Exhaust fan error. If you put your hand over it and don’t feel air coming out, it’s usually dirt or something keeping it from spinning. It almost never goes bad needing replacement. Try blowing it out first. Read this post

Prints blank pages, won't print from computer
ANSWER : Don’t know why you replaced the fuser, but assuming you had print before, then it must have been something you did during the procedure. Only thing I can suggest is to recheck your work. Just because you reinstalled a connector doesn’t mean that it is seated firmly enough to work. Any flat ribbon connectors that you removed and reinstalled, check to see that the contacts are all flat and not peeled back.

Print file sent but no printing occurs
ANSWER : Been working on these since they first were released. Never seen a problem like yours. If it happens again, try doing an engine test, as it bypasses the formatter board. The engine test is located at the right side of the manual tray opening. Look for a hole in the side wall. Stick something like a paper clip into it to actuate the test button. It will then print a lined test page. If it does that, then it points to the formatter board as the cause of your problem.
