Question about Canon PIXMA MX310 All-In-One Printer
Thanks, but this isn't hooked to a computer. It's an internal speaker. Only does this on dial out?

I just read through the manual for the Fax element of your printer. There is no specific setting you can address to reduce the fax noise.
The fax sounds may (and should) be coming through your Windows Sound System. As such, you can test this by taking a look at your system tray. This tray is where the digital clock is located on the bottom right of your screen display. In the tray itself should be a small speaker icon. Place your mouse over this and it will display "Volume" near your mouse pointer, now click once on this icon once. You will see a slider appear titled Volume and at the bottom is a check box title "Mute". You can either drop the volume slider down to reduce the volume (if this is being driven by the Windows Sound System) or select the "Mute" box and that will mute all Windows Sound Features until you unMute it later. Which ever you choose, remember how you accessed this so you can re-enable sounds later should you choose to listen to them for any particular reason.
You can then send a fax again as a test and then witness what affect this has. I feel this will Fix your problem. I'm happy to help and assist further. In the worst case scenario the effort will have no affect on your Fax sound. But its been my experience over the years that when a fax generates unusually loud sound, it is coming through your speakers. Let's hope this is the case.
Should you become confused, need clarification or need any further assistance please feel free to contact me by using the comment box below. I will receive an email notification from you and I will respond using the FixYa interface.
