FAX-L250
User’s Guide
Although this equipment can use either loop disconnect or DTMF signalling, only the performance
of the DTMF signalling is subject to regulatory requirements for correct operation. It is therefore
strongly recommended that the equipment is set to use DTMF signalling for access to public or
private emergency services. DTMF signalling also provides faster call set up.
This CE Marking shows compliance of this equipment with Directive 73/23/EEC and Directive
89/336/EEC (as amended by Directive 92/31/EEC), both as amended by Directive 93/68/EEC.

Welcome
Thank you for purchasing the new Canon FAX-L250. The FAX-L250 is a G3 facsimile unit that allows
you to send documents at high speed, in the shortest time possible. We are sure that your FAX-L250
will help meet your fax and phone requirements easily and conveniently, as well as your copying needs.
FAX-L250
1-2
The Main Features of the FAX-L250
1
The FAX-L250 is a multifunction system for your home or small office. The FAX-L250 combines a
plain paper fax machine, a copier, and a telephone* into a single, convenient desktop unit.
The FAX-L250’s multitasking ability enables you to perform operations simultaneously. For example,
you can make copies at the same time you are sending a fax or receiving a fax into memory.
The compact size of the FAX-L250 makes it ideal for desktop use, and lets you use it in places where
other machines may not fit.
The FAX-L250 includes the following features:
Excellent print quality and speed
The FAX-L250 offers 600 × 600 dpi laser beam printing, providing you with high resolution text and
graphics. The exceptional printing speed of 6 pages per minute allows you to work more effectively.
Simple maintenance
The FX-3 toner cartridge for the FAX-L250 contains both the toner and the drum, making installation
and replacement simple.
Convenient paper handling
The FAX-L250 sheet feeder holds up to 100 sheets** of plain A4, letter, or legal-size paper.
Economy toner-saving printing
The FAX-L250 includes an economy printing mode that uses up to approximately 50% less toner,
resulting in longer cartridge life.
Flexible document feeding
The FAX-L250 includes an Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) that can be set for automatic
document feed or manual document feed, according to your needs. This allows you to fax a variety of
documents, from multipage documents (up to 20 A4- or letter-size pages, or 10 legal-size pages at a
time), to a single photo or business card.
* Requires the optional handset, a telephone, or an answering machine.
** 75 g/m2 paper
1-3
Introducing the FAX-L250
Plain Paper Fax Features
UHQTM Image Processing System
The FAX-L250 uses Canon’s Ultra-High Quality Image Processing System to provide enhanced
definition in faxed photos.
Error Correction Mode (ECM)
Using the FAX-L250’s Error Correction Mode reduces transmission errors when sending faxes to or
receiving faxes from other fax machines that also have ECM capability.
Automatic switching between fax and voice calls
The FAX-L250 can automatically distinguish between fax calls and normal telephone calls, so that you
can receive both through a single phone line.
Answering machine connection
You can connect an answering machine to the FAX-L250 to let it receive telephone messages and faxes
while you are away from your desk.
Transmission speed
The FAX-L250 uses G3 data encoding methods that increase transmission speed to approximately 6
seconds* per page.
Memory sending/receiving
The FAX-L250 can store up to 90* fax pages (either received or to be sent) in its built-in memory, and
can receive faxes while printing.
Reduced-size printing
The FAX-L250 automatically scales received faxes to fit the size of the paper loaded into the sheet
feeder. So if your client is sending you a fax on paper larger than an A4-size page and you have A4-size
paper in your sheet feeder, the fax will be scaled and printed on A4-size paper.
Automatic dialling and broadcasting
To make faxing even easier, the FAX-L250 provides several automatic dialling methods: coded speed
dialling, one-touch speed dialling, and group dialling. The FAX-L250 also enables you to broadcast
faxes or send faxes at a preset time to as many as 117 locations at once.
* Based on Canon FAX Standard Chart No.1, standard mode
1-4
The Main Features of the FAX-L250
Copier Features
1
Up to 99 copies
The FAX-L250 can make up to 99 copies of a document at a time, at a rate of up to six copies per
minute.
600 dpi and 300 dpi resolution
The FAX-L250 copies documents at 600 × 300 dpi when using direct copying, and 300 × 300 dpi when
using memory copying.
Copy reduction
The FAX-L250 can reduce copies to 90%, 80%, or 70% of their original size. This allows you to copy
legal-size documents onto A4-size paper, for example.
Telephone Features
Automatic dialling
The FAX-L250’s three automatic dialling methods (one-touch speed dialling, coded speed dialling, and
group dialling) can be used to store phone numbers and fax numbers for easy and efficient calling.
Connection for the optional handset, an answering machine or a telephone
Connecting the optional handset or a telephone to the FAX-L250 allows you to use it to make and
receive normal telephone calls. In addition, connecting an answering machine allows you to receive faxes
and phone messages while you are away from your desk.

Safety Instructions
1
Read these safety instructions thoroughly before using your FAX-L250, and keep them handy in case
you need to refer to them later.
Except as specifically described in this user’s guide, do not attempt to service the
FAX-L250 yourself. Never attempt to disassemble the unit: opening and removing its
interior covers will expose you to dangerous voltages and other risks. For all service,
contact your local authorised Canon dealer or service centre.
¶ Always follow all warnings and instructions marked on the FAX-L250.
¶ Use the FAX-L250 only on a sturdy, stable, level surface. If the unit falls, it could be seriously
damaged.
¶ Do not use the FAX-L250 near water. If you spill liquid on or into the unit, unplug it immediately
and call your local authorised Canon dealer or service centre.
¶ The back of the FAX-L250 includes slots and openings for ventilation. To keep the FAX-L250 from
overheating (which can cause it to operate abnormally and create a fire risk), take care not to block
or cover these openings. Do not operate the unit on a bed, sofa, rug, or other similar soft surface, or
near a radiator or other heat source. Do not place the FAX-L250 in a cupboard or cabinet or on
shelves unless adequate ventilation is available. See ″Choosing a Location for Your FAX-L250″ on
page 2-3 for guidelines on how much space the unit needs for ventilation.
¶ Operate the FAX-L250 only from the type of power source indicated on the unit’s label. If you are
unsure of the type of power available from your wall outlets, contact your local power company.
¶ Make sure the total amperage used by all devices plugged into the wall outlet does not exceed the
ampere rating of the outlet’s circuit breaker.
¶ Do not allow anything to rest on the power cord or place the FAX-L250 where the cord will be
walked on. Make sure the cord is not knotted or kinked.
1-9
Introducing the FAX-L250
¶ Do not insert objects of any kind into the slots or openings on the FAX-L250’s cabinet, as they could
touch dangerous voltage points or short out parts, and result in fire or electric shock.
¶ Do not allow small objects (such as pins, paper clips, or staples) to fall into the FAX-L250. If
something does fall into it, unplug the unit immediately and call your local authorised Canon dealer
or service centre.
¶ Do not plug the power cord into an uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
¶ Always unplug the FAX-L250 before moving or cleaning it.
¶ Whenever you unplug the FAX-L250, wait at least five seconds before you plug it back in.
¶ Keep the FAX-L250 away from direct sunlight, as this can damage it. If you have to place it near a
window, install heavy curtains or blinds.
¶ Do not expose the FAX-L250 to extreme temperature fluctuations. Install the unit in a place with
temperatures between 10° and 32.5°C.
¶ Always unplug the FAX-L250 during thunderstorms.
¶ Before you transport the FAX-L250, remove the toner cartridge.

Choosing a Location for Your
FAX-L250
Before unpacking your FAX-L250, follow these guidelines to choose an appropriate location for the
unit.
2
Please review the information provided in ″Safety Instructions″ on page 1-9, to make
sure you are installing your FAX-L250 for safe use.
¶ Put the FAX-L250 in a cool, dry, clean, well ventilated place:
+ Make sure the area is free from dust.
+ Make sure the location is not affected by extreme temperature fluctuations, and remains between
10° and 32.5°C.
+ Make sure the area’s relative humidity is always between 20% and 85%.
¶ Keep the FAX-L250 away from direct sunlight.
¶ If possible, place the FAX-L250 near an existing telephone outlet, to allow for an easy connection of
the telephone line to the unit.
¶ Place the FAX-L250 near an electrical wall outlet that provides 200–240-volt AC (50–60 Hz) power.
¶ Do not plug the FAX-L250 into the same circuit as an appliance such as an air conditioner, electric
typewriter, television, or copier. Such devices generate electrical noise that can interfere with your
unit’s ability to send or receive faxes.
¶ Set the FAX-L250 on a flat, stable, vibration-free surface that is strong enough to support its weight
(about 8.6 kg).

Setting Up Your FAX-L250
Connecting the Power Cord
Follow these guidelines when connecting your FAX-L250 to a power source:
■ The FAX-L250 is intended for domestic use only and requires 200–240 V AC. Do not
use it outside the country where it was purchased.
■ Use only the power cord that came with the unit. Using a longer cord or extension
cord can cause the FAX-L250 to malfunction.
■ Unplug the unit only by pulling on the plug itself. Never pull on the cord.
■ Do not plug the FAX-L250 into an outlet shared with an appliance such as an air
conditioner, computer, electric typewriter, or copier. These devices generate
electrical noise, which can interfere with the operation of the FAX-L250.
■ Make sure nothing is laying on the power cord, and that the cord cannot be walked
on or tripped over.
■ Do not overload the electrical outlet. Make sure the total amperage used by all the
machines plugged into the outlet does not exceed the ampere rating of the outlet’s
circuit breaker.
■ Do not plug the unit into an uninterruptible power supply (UPS).
Connect the power cord as follows:
1
Plug the supplied power cord into the power connector on the back of the FAX-L250.
2-16

The Toner Cartridge
Handling and Storing Cartridges
¶ Do not expose the cartridge to direct sunlight or bright light for longer than
five minutes.
¶ Do not open the drum protective shutter on the cartridge. If the drum surface
is exposed to light and damaged, print quality may deteriorate.
¶ Do not stand the cartridge on end, and do not turn it upside down. If toner
becomes caked in the cartridge, it may prove impossible to free it even by
shaking the cartridge.
¶ Keep the cartridge away from computer screens, disc drives, and floppy discs.
The magnet inside the cartridge may harm these items.
HDD
¶ Never touch the drum protective shutter. When holding the cartridge avoid
touching the drum protective shutter with your hands.
¶ Do not store the cartridge in direct sunlight.
¶ Avoid locations subject to high temperature, high humidity, or rapid changes
in temperature. Store the cartridge between 0° and 35°C.
¶ Hold the cartridge as shown so that your hand is not touching the drum
protective shutter.
2-25
2
Setting Up Your FAX-L250

The Toner Cartridge
Installing/Replacing the Toner Cartridge
The FAX-L250 uses a Canon FX-3 toner cartridge. The procedure below explains how to install the
cartridge for the first time, and how to replace it when the toner runs out.
When the message CHANGE CARTRIDGE appears, the toner in the cartridge may simply be unevenly
distributed. Before replacing the cartridge, follow the instructions on page 10-28 to evenly distribute the
toner. If after doing this the message remains displayed or the print quality is low, replace the cartridge
as described below.
Canon makes numerous cartridges. The FX-3 toner cartridge has been designed
specially for the FAX-L250 and is the only one Canon recommends that you use.
1
Remove any documents and/or printed pages from the unit.
2
Make sure the FAX-L250 is plugged in.
3
Open the front cover by pressing the release latches on the sides of the unit.
¶ Lift the cover forward to its open position.
2-27
2
Setting Up Your FAX-L250

2-32
Loading Recording Paper
When the message LOAD PAPER appears in the LCD display, you need to add paper to the sheet
feeder. Here are a few tips you should follow when you load paper into the sheet feeder.
¶ Use A4-size paper.
2
¶ Use standard 64–90 g/m2 weight paper.
¶ The sheet feeder holds up to 100 sheets of standard weight paper* (maximum 10 mm stack height).
¶ Let the paper run out before you refill the sheet feeder. Avoid mixing new paper with paper
remaining in the sheet feeder.
¶ Stack the paper so that the top and bottom edges and sides are straight and even before placing it in
the sheet feeder.
¶ Do not print on both sides of the paper. Doing so may cause several sheets to feed into the unit at
the same time.
■ Do not use damp, curled, wrinkled, or torn paper as these can cause paper jams or
poor print quality.
■ Highly textured or extremely smooth or shiny paper does not print well.
■ The laser printing process uses high temperatures to fuse toner to the paper. Use
paper that will not melt, vaporise, discolour, or emit dangerous fumes at
temperatures near 170°C. For example, do not use vellum paper in a laser printer.
Make sure any letterhead or coloured paper you use can withstand high
temperatures.
■ Make sure the paper is free of dust, lint, and oil stains.
■ To keep the paper from curling, do not open paper packs until you are ready to use
the paper. Store unused paper from opened packs in a cool, dry location in the
original packaging.
■ Your FAX-L250 is factory-set to use A4-size paper. If you wish to use letter- or legal
-size paper, you must change the setting from the FAX PRINTER menu. See Chapter
12, ″The Menu System″ for more details on changing the setting.
Do not load paper in the sheet feeder when the unit is printing.
* 75 g/m2 paper
2-33
Setting Up Your FAX-L250
Follow these steps to load paper in the sheet feeder.
Let the paper run out before you refill the sheet feeder.
1
Before loading paper, stack it so that the leading edge and sides of the paper are even.
2
Open the paper guides to the approximate width of the stack of paper.
2-34
Loading Recording Paper
3
Insert the stack of paper– print side facing you and top edge first into the sheet feeder.
¶ Insert the stack until it stops, but do not force it in.
2
4
Adjust the paper guides to the width of the paper.
¶ Make sure there is no space between the paper guides and the stack of paper.
Your FAX-L250 is now ready to print.
Let the paper run out before you refill the sheet feeder. Avoid mixing new paper with
paper remaining in the sheet feeder.
2-35
Testing the FAX-L250
After you have assembled your FAX-L250, installed the toner cartridge, loaded plain paper in the sheet
feeder, you can make sure the FAX-L250 is printing properly by making several copies of a document.
For instructions, see Chapter 8 ″Making Copies″.
Note the following:
¶ If the printed sheets are curled as they exit the FAX-L250, remove them from the output slot
immediately to avoid paper jams.
¶ Make sure your text or graphics fall within the printable area.
2-36
The Paper Path
Understanding how paper feeds through the FAX-L250 will help you to determine how to load paper
and handle paper jams.
The page travels first to the FX-3 toner cartridge. Here a laser beam ″draws″ the print image on the
drum, then the drum applies toner to the page. The page then travels to the fixing assembly where the
toner is fused to the page. The page then exits the unit from the front or top.
DOCUMENT
RECORDING PAPER
TONER CARTRIDGE
When you are printing, follow these guidelines:
¶ Always set the paper delivery selector before starting to print.
¶ Do not switch the paper delivery selector until the printout completely comes out of the delivery slot.
Otherwise, a paper jam may occur.
¶ Make sure there is enough room for the paper to exit from the face-up delivery slot.
¶ Never pull the paper as it comes out of the unit.
¶ When using face-up delivery, receive each printout by letting it slide onto your open hand or onto the
table.

Selecting Paper Delivery
Received faxes and copies can be delivered through the face-up or face-down delivery slots. Choose
paper delivery according to the job the FAX-L250 is performing and the type of print media you are
using.
2-38
Selecting Paper Delivery
Face-Down Delivery
Face-down delivery is used for most jobs and when using plain paper only (64 to 90 g/m2). Printed
pages are stacked in the order printed in the face-down delivery slot. This slot holds up to 50 sheets of
plain paper (75 g/m2).
Move the paper delivery selector up to the
mark.

FACE-DOWN DELIVERY
2-39
Setting Up Your FAX-L250
Face-Up Delivery
Printed pages come out through the face-up delivery slot in reverse order. Since there is no limit in the
number of pages that can be delivered, this setting is convenient when receiving a large number of faxes,
when making many copies, or when you plan to be away from your office or home for a long period of
time.
Place the FAX-L250 on the edge of a table so that printed pages can come out without blocking the
face-up delivery slot.
1
Move the paper delivery selector down to the
mark.
FACE-UP DELIVERY
When using face-up delivery, make sure that the unit is placed as shown above so that
the pages can drop away from the unit. If you do not place the unit as shown and
prefer to use the extension tray, be sure to remove each page as it is delivered to avoid
blocking the face-up delivery slot.
2
Make sure there is enough room for the paper to exit in front of the unit.

Selecting Automatic/Manual Document Feed
With the FAX-L250, you can select whether you want to scan documents automatically or manually.
Automatic document feeding is used when scanning multipage documents on normal paper. Use manual
document feeding when scanning single-page documents such as photos, business cards, or documents
on other special types of paper. Manual document feed will allow you to scan your document with
minimum damage to the surface of the document.
When using manual feed, use a carrier sheet to avoid scratching the surface of
important documents (photographs, for example).
Use the document feed lever located at the top of the operation panel, to select automatic document
feed or manual document feed.

Setting the Resolution and Contrast
j Setting the Scanning Resolution
Canon’s Ultra High Quality (UHQ™) imaging technology enables you to send faxes with a print quality
that is very close to that of the original document. The FAX-L250 also lets you adjust the resolution it
uses in sending faxes to best suit your particular document.
The FAX-L250 has three resolution settings:
STANDARD resolution (203 × 98 dpi) is adequate for most text documents.
¶
¶
FINE resolution (203 × 196 dpi) is suitable for documents with fine print (smaller than the print in
this sentence).
¶
PHOTO resolution (203 × 196 dpi, with halftones) is for documents that contain photographs.
With this setting, areas of the document that contain photos are automatically scanned with 64 levels
of grey, rather than just two (black and white). This gives a much better reproduction of the photos,
though transmission time is longer.
Set the resolution as follows:
1
Press RESOLUTION.

( START/COPY) button to begin sending. See page 5-16 for more details
receive your fax, press the
on manual sending via the handset.
j Memory Sending
Memory sending allows you to send a document easily and quickly. This method of sending scans the
document into memory, and as the first page of a multipage document is being scanned, the FAX-L250
already begins calling the other party and transmitting the information even as the remaining pages are
being scanned.
To use memory sending, you load the document, dial the fax number and press the
START/COPY) button. See page 5-18 for more details on memory sending.
(
Since the FAX-L250 is multitasking, you can even scan a document into the memory while sending a
document, receiving a document, or printing a report.
Dialling Methods
There are several ways of dialling the number of the party you want to send to:
¶ Regular dialling
Use the numeric buttons to dial the recipient’s fax number.
¶ One-touch speed dialling
ress the one-touch speed dialling button (1 to 16) under which you have registered the number you want
to send to. See Chapter 4 ″Speed Dialling″ for details on registering and using one-touch speed dialling.
¶ Coded speed dialling
Press CODED DIAL and enter the two-digit code (00 to 99) under which you have registered the
number you want to sent to. See Chapter 4 ″Speed Dialling″ for details on registering and using coded
speed dialling.

Sending Documents
This section describes the different ways to send faxes with the FAX-L250.
Manual Sending via the Handset
If you have the optional handset or a telephone connected to your FAX-L250, you can send faxes
manually. This allows you to talk to the other party before sending the fax, which can be useful if the
other party uses a single line for both voice and fax transmissions.
Be sure to adjust the document feed lever before loading your document. See page 5-6
for details.

Memory Sending
Memory sending is a quick and easy way to send a fax. The FAX-L250 scans the document into its
memory as it dials the fax number. If the line is free, the FAX-L250 begins sending the fax as it scans
the rest of the document.
The FAX-L250 has enough memory to store up to 90 pages (fewer if the document contains many
graphics or particularly dense text).
Follow the instructions below to send a document with memory sending:
Be sure to adjust the document feed lever before loading your document. See page 5-6
for details.

and subaddress that correspond to the password and subaddress of the receiving fax machine. This
feature allows you to enter the password/subaddress (based on the ITU-T standard) of the receiving fax
before sending the document.
Make sure you have the other party’s password and subaddress. The password and
subaddress you enter must be identical to those of the receiving fax.
To send a document with a password and subaddress, follow this procedure.
Be sure to adjust the document feed lever before loading your document. See page 5-6

Different Ways to Receive a Fax
The FAX-L250 provides you with four different modes for receiving faxes. To decide which mode will
best suit your requirements, consider how you want to use the FAX-L250:
¶ Fax/Tel Mode
Use this mode if you will occasionally use the FAX-L250 as a telephone. In this mode, if an incoming
call is a fax, the FAX-L250 then receives fax calls automatically, without ringing; if the call is from a
person, the FAX-L250 rings to alert you to pick up the optional handset or telephone to answer the
call. This mode is economical, in that it allows you to have phone and fax service without the expense
of an additional phone line.
This mode also includes settings that let you control precisely how it handles incoming calls. For details
see page 6-4.
¶ MANUAL MODE
Use this mode if you will frequently use the FAX-L250 as a telephone and want to answer every call
yourself, including fax calls. The FAX-L250 then rings for every call, whether phone or fax, and you
( START/COPY) button to begin receiving a fax.
must press the
¶ FAX ONLY MODE
Use this mode if the FAX-L250 will be connected to a separate telephone line used only for transmitting
faxes. The FAX-L250 then answers all calls, and receives all faxes automatically.
¶ ANS.MACHINE MODE
Use this mode if you plan to connect an answering machine to the FAX-L250 to receive faxes and
phone messages. The FAX-L250 then receives incoming faxes normally, and routes incoming phone calls
to the answering machine.
Once you have decided which mode you want, set the mode as described in ″Setting the Receive Mode″
on page 6-3. You can change the mode at any time.

Mode
See page 6-3 to select Fax/Tel Mode.
Set this mode if you want your FAX-L250 to automatically switch between voice and fax calls. For this
mode, you need to have the optional handset or a telephone connected to your unit.
You can control precisely how your FAX-L250 handles incoming calls by adjusting the settings
described below.
j Setting Up Fax/Tel Mode
When you select Fax/Tel Mode, you can also set these options.
¶ RING START TIME
When a call comes in, the unit checks to see if it is a person wishing to speak to you or a fax machine
trying to send a document. If your unit does not have enough time to detect the fax tone, it assumes the
call is from a telephone. Use the RING START TIME setting to increase the time the unit takes to
check whether a call is from a fax machine or a telephone. You can select a time between 0 and 30
seconds; the default is 8 seconds.
¶ F/T RING TIME
When your unit is set to receive both fax and telephone calls automatically, it rings to alert you to pick
up the handset if the call is from a person. If you do not pick up the handset within a certain amount of
time, the unit stops ringing. Use this option to change the number of times the unit rings, from 1 to 300
seconds. The default is 22 seconds.
¶ F/T SWITCH ACTION
Not all fax machines are capable of sending a FAX TONE (the CNG tone that warns the receiving fax
machine that a fax is coming). For those cases the unit may think that the call coming in is a voice call
and rings to alert you of the call (the amount of time it is going to ring is determined by the F/T RING
TIME setting above). If you do not answer the call, one of two things can happen:
6-4
Different Ways to Receive a Fax
1
If you set the F/T SWITCH ACTION to RECEIVE, the unit will switch to fax receive mode
automatically at that point and start to receive the document. If no document comes in, it
disconnects the call after approximately 35 seconds. The factory default setting is RECEIVE.
2
If you set the F/T SWITCH ACTION to DISCONNECT, the unit will disconnect the phone call
immediately freeing up your phone line at this point.

Receiving Faxes Manually: MANUAL MODE
See page 6-3 to select MANUAL MODE.
To use this feature, you must have the optional handset or a telephone connected to the FAX-L250. See
″Connecting the Optional Handset, a Telephone or Answering Machine″ on page 2-15. In MANUAL
MODE, the FAX-L250 rings every time it receives a call, whether the call is from a telephone or a fax
machine.
If you use your FAX-L250 with MANUAL MODE, answer incoming calls as follows:
1
When the FAX-L250 or the telephone rings, pick up the handset.
If you hear a person’s voice:
2
Start your conversation. If the caller wants to
send a document after talking to you, ask
them to press the start button on their fax
machine. When you hear a slow beep, press

Ex:
¶ The FAX-L250 then begins receiving the
document. (This is particularly convenient if
your telephone is located away from the
FAX-L250.)
6
¶ If you do not hang up after pressing the
two-digit ID code, the unit beeps intermittently
for a few seconds after you receive the
document. (You can turn the beeping off by
disabling the OFFHOOK ALARM in the USER
SETTINGS menu. See page 12-5 for details).
6-9
Receiving Faxes
If you have an answering machine connected to your FAX-L250 that can carry out
remote-control operations (controlling your answering machine from a remote
telephone), the security code for this function may be the same as the two-digit ID
code described above. If so, make sure you change the FAX-L250 two-digit ID code to
make it distinct from the answering machine’s security code. See page 12-11 for more
details.
Receiving Faxes Automatically: FAX ONLY MODE
When the FAX-L250 is set up for a dedicated line, set FAX ONLY MODE to automatically receive
documents whenever a call comes over the fax line.

6-10
RECEIVE MODE
FAX ONLY MODE
Different Ways to Receive a Fax
Using an Answering Machine: ANS.MACHINE MODE
See page 6-3 to select ANS.MACHINE MODE.
Connecting an answering machine to the FAX-L250 allows you to receive faxes and phone messages
while you are out of the office.
In ANS.MACHINE MODE, the FAX-L250 allows the answering machine to answer incoming calls,
then listens for a fax tone or for four seconds of silence (also an indication that a fax is coming in), and
automatically receives the fax if it detects the fax tone or a four-second silence.
For instructions on connecting an answering machine to the
FAX-L250, see ″Connecting the Optional Handset, a Telephone, or Answering Machine″ on page 2-15.
Canon does not recommend using an ″answering service″ (like those offered by local
telephone companies that provide voice mail) on the telephone line you are connecting
to the FAX-L250. If you do subscribe to an answering service, you may want to
dedicate a separate line for fax communication only and connect that line to the
FAX-L250.
j Using the FAX-L250 with an Answering Machine
Follow these guidelines when using the FAX-L250 with an answering machine:
¶ Set the answering machine to answer on the first or second ring.
¶ If the FAX-L250 runs out of paper or toner in ANS.MACHINE MODE, it receives all faxes into
memory. The faxes then print automatically when you add paper or replace the toner cartridge.
¶ When recording the outgoing message on the answering machine:
+ Leave a four-second pause at the beginning of the message.
+ The entire message, including the four-second pause, must be no more than 15 seconds long.
+ In the message, tell your callers how to send a fax. For example:
″Hello. I can’t answer the phone right now, but please leave a message after the beep. I’ll return
your call as soon as possible. If you would like to send a fax, press the start button on your fax
machine after you leave your message. Thank you.″

Receiving Faxes
Network FAX/TEL Switching (Australia Only)
Telstra offers the FaxStream DUET capability. If you subscribe to this service, your line is assigned two
numbers: one for fax and one for phone. When the fax number is called, the network sends a specific
ringing tone which your unit recognises and automatically handles as a fax call. If the phone number is
called, a different ringing tone is sent out from the network so that the call is handled as a voice call.
This means that there is no switching delay at the caller’s end.
¶ Triple ring (short-short-short) for fax receiving.
Three short rings, at regular intervals.
¶ Any ring except triple ring (depending on your switchboard) for telephone conversation

Receiving While Registering, Copying, or Printing
Since the FAX-L250 is a multitasking device, it can receive faxes and phone calls while you are entering
your user information, making copies, or printing a report.
If you receive a fax while you are making copies or printing a report manually, the FAX-L250 stores
the incoming fax in memory. Then, as soon as you finish making copies or printing the report, the
FAX-L250 automatically prints the fax. If you are entering registration information, the fax is printed
as soon as it is received, and does not go into memory.

Polling to Receive Faxes
The FAX-L250’s polling feature allows you to request a document to be faxed to you from another fax
machine. The sender only needs to make sure the document is on his fax machine and ready to be sent:
when your FAX-L250 polls that machine, the document is sent automatically. The FAX-L250 can poll
any fax machine that supports polling. (This process does not work in reverse, however: the FAX-L250
cannot be polled by other fax machines.
Polling a fax machine
To poll another fax machine and receive a document from it, do the following:
■ Before attempting to poll a fax machine, make sure that fax machine supports
polling.
■ Your FAX-L250 cannot be polled by another fax machine.

Use this feature only when you register a number. In some areas you may have to confirm the dial tone
in the middle of the facsimile number before dialling the rest of the number. This is called dial tone
detection.

Special Features
Using Tone Dialling on a Pulse Line
Even if you have a pulse line, the FAX-L250 enables you to use tone dialling once you have connected
to the number you are calling. This lets you take advantage of many services that require tones, such as
selecting options from telephone ″touch-line″ services.
1
Pick up the handset and dial the number using
the numeric buttons.
■ The unit connects using the pulses required
by your phone line.
2
3
Press FUNCTION, then press TONE/+ to
switch to tone dialling.
■ When the TONE/+ button is pressed, T is
displayed in the LCD.
■ Numbers entered after pressing the TONE/+
button will be dialled using tone dialling.
FUNCTION
TONE/+
When you have finished, hang up the handset.
When registering one-touch speed dialling and coded speed dialling numbers, if you
enter the TONE/+ button after the number, you will switch to tone dialling after the
phone connection is made.
Example:
REDIAL/
PAUSE
REDIAL/
PAUSE
REDIAL/
PAUSE
TONE/+
Operation
Display
TEL=123456pppT*34
After the number (123456) is dialled, it will pause for 6 seconds (ppp) to allow the other
party to answer and then it will switch to tone (T). Now you can follow the instructions
that were recorded by the party you called.

Using Alternative Telephone
Networks (UK only)
The FAX-L250 has a built-in feature that allows you to send documents and make telephone calls with
an alternative long-distance service, such as the 2300 Service of Mercury Communications Limited. If
you subscribe to such a service, you can save money on most long distance international
communications.
The procedures described in this section show you how to use your unit with the 2300 Service of
Mercury Communications Limited. For details on using your unit with alternative telephone services,
contact your Canon authorised representative.

Making Copies
This chapter describes how to make copies with your
FAX-L250.
Making Copies ...................................................... 8-2
Making Copies
One of the FAX-L250’s convenient features is its ability to make up to 99 high-quality copies of a
document. To make copies, do the following:
Be sure to adjust the document feed lever before loading your document. See page 5-6
for details.
1
Prepare the document and load it, face down, into the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF).
¶ Once the document is loaded, the LCD display
shows the following:

Making Copies
■ You cannot make copies in STANDARD resolution, but must use FINE or PHOTO
resolution instead. (STANDARD does not appear as one of the available
resolutions.)
■ FINE resolution works well for copying most text documents.
■ Use PHOTO resolution when copying documents that contain photographs. This
scans areas of the document that contain photos with 64 levels of grey, and results
in a much better reproduction of the photograph.

Making Copies
¶ If an error occurs during copying, the message START AGAIN appears in the display, and you
will need to reload the document and start copying again.
If MEMORY FULL appears in the display while you are making multiple copies of a
document, you will not be able to use the multiple copy feature for copying the
document. Instead, make single copies of the document (as many times as required).
To correct this situation, delete or resend any documents stored in memory. See

transactions. This report lists the details of the faxes you have sent or received so that you can keep
track of the transaction operations your FAX-L250 has performed.
You can also print the Activity Report manually if you want to check the report before the 20
transactions are completed. Follow this procedure to print the Activity Report.

See FAX/TEL switching.
Automatic dialling
Dialling fax or telephone numbers by pressing
one or three buttons. To use automatic
dialling, you must register the numbers in the
FAX-L250’s memory. See also One-touch speed
dialling, Coded speed dialling, and Group
dialling.
Automatic Document Feeder (ADF)
The device included in the FAX-L250 that
feeds the document being faxed, copied, or
scanned into the FAX-L250.
Automatic image reduction
The FAX-L250 can print the date, time,
company name, and a fax number at the top of
the faxes it receives. To prevent this
information from crowding the faxed image on
the page and possibly lengthening the fax, the
FAX-L250 automatically reduces the size of
the image on the page.
Automatic redialling
When the receiving fax machine is busy or
does not answer, or when an error occurs while
sending, the FAX-L250 waits a specified time
and then automatically redials the number. If
the receiving fax is still busy or does not
answer, the FAX-L250 waits the specified time
and dials again. If the fax still doesn’t go
through, the FAX-L250 prints an activity
report.
B

FAX-L250 to reduce system and line errors
when sending or receiving from another fax
with ECM capability. ECM is most effective in
areas where the telephone lines are in poor
condition or there is frequent interference on
the line. Do not use ECM if you need to send
a document quickly and you are sure the other
party can read your transmission without it
(turning off ECM also turns off MMR).
Extension

Q
`
Quick-on-line sending
Quick-on-line sending is the easiest and
quickest way to send a document. After a
document is set in the Automatic Document
Feeder (ADF), the FAX-L250 begins to scan
the entire document into the memory. As the
first page of a multi-page document is being
scanned, your FAX-L250 will begin to call the
other party, and transmit the information even
as the remaining pages are being scanned. The
FAX-L250 scans the document quickly so you
can get it back in a few moments and return to
work.
R
`
RECEIVE MODE
The button that controls how the FAX-L250
receives fax and telephone calls.
Receiving
Receiving transmission is also defined as RX
or Reception. The FAX-L250 can be
customised to receive fax documents in many
ways:
¶ Receive fax documents only (FAX ONLY
MODE)
¶ Receive both telephone calls and fax
documents on the same line (Fax/Tel Mode)
¶ Receive telephone calls and fax documents
manually (MANUAL MODE)
