This article provides information on resending a fax with the PIXMA G7020.  Faxes can be resent via automatic redialing or manual redialing.



Resending Faxes (Redialing a Busy Number)

There are two methods of redialing: Automatic redialing and Manual redialing.

  • Automatic Redialing

    If you send a document and the recipient's line is busy, the printer will redial the number after a specified interval.

  • Manual Redialing

    You can redial to the recipients dialed using the Numeric buttons.


  • It may be possible that faxes will reach unintended recipients due to the misdialing or incorrect registration of fax/telephone numbers. When you send important documents, we recommend that you send them after speaking on the telephone.


Automatic Redialing

You can enable or disable automatic redialing. If you enable automatic redialing, you can specify the maximum number of redial attempts and the length of time the printer waits between redial attempts.

Enable and specify the automatic redialing setting on Auto redial in Adv. fax settings under Fax settings.


  • While automatic redialing, the unsent fax is stored in the printer's memory temporarily until the sending fax is complete. If a power failure occurs or you unplug the power cord before automatic redialing is complete, all faxes stored in the printer's memory are deleted and not sent.


  • To stop automatic redialing, wait until the printer starts redialing, then press the Stop button.

  • To cancel automatic redialing, delete the unsent fax from the printer's memory while the printer is on-standby for a redial operation. For details, see Deleting a Document in the Printer's Memory.

Manual Redialing

To manually redial a fax number, follow the steps below.

    • Color transmission is available only when the recipient's fax device supports color faxing.


  • For manual redialing, the printer memorizes up to 10 recent recipients dialed by entering the fax / telephone numbers. Note that the printer does not memorize any recipients dialed using the redial function or selecting from the directory.

  • To cancel manual redialing, press the Stop button. To cancel a fax transmission while it is in progress, press the Stop button, then follow the instructions on the LCD.
