How to receive fax


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Phone line
  • Multi-function printer
  1. Step 1 Connect the multi-function printer to a phone line. Most printers with fax capability have more than one phone jack, so make sure you are plugged into the right one.
  2. Step 2 Turn the printer on and access the start-up menu. Pick an answering mode based on your expected usage of the fax capabilities of your machine (see the next steps for more information about this).
  3. Step 3 Put the printer in manual mode if you expect little fax traffic. The manual mode usually requires you to pick up every call that comes to the machine. If you hear the signal for a fax, you push the start button and hang up.
  4. Step 4 Choose the automatic mode if you expect a lot of faxes or have a dedicated fax line. In automatic mode, the printer listens to incoming calls and determines whether they are faxes or voice calls. Voice calls get sent on to your phone, and faxes are picked up by the printer.
  5. Step 5 Select the number of rings you want your multi-function printer to give you before dropping a call. If you are using the manual mode you may want to go with four or more rings. Two rings should be sufficient in the automatic mode.
  6. Step 6 Load paper into the paper tray. Check on the paper level frequently if you receive a lot of faxes.
  7. Step 7 Set the desired print quality, and you are ready to receive faxes.

You should be all set now to receive faxes.

How do I set it up as a fax along with my using my telephone on the same phone number


somewhere in the user settings it will have a tel/fax setting wich will allow you to hit "start" to manually receive a fax, also some phone companies can set you up with a distinctive ring for faxing, so you won't need to do a manual receive. when you pick up the phone in the tel/fax mode and hear the fax screech then hit the start button to begin receiving. hope this helps.

I can send fax but cant recieve fax


You have not told us which model fax you have but most machines have a receive mode selection. Your machine may be set to 'manual' receive. It will only receive if you pick up the phone and hit the start buton. The phone has to be connected to the machine. Look on your machine for the receive button. It may be marked as 'auto receive' and 'manual receive'. Select 'auto' so the machine will answer. It may be marked as 'fax mode' and 'tel mode' if so select 'fax mode''. It may also have a selection 'ans mode' you don't want this as it assumes that you have an answer phone connected to your machine and it waits until the machine answers before it detects incoming fax. Good Luck

Fax machine picking up all calls


You must set the FAX RECEIVE MODE to FAX ONLY. The factory default is FAX/TELEPHONE. You can find the proceedure to change FAX RECEIVE MODE in your owners manual. IIf you don't have an owners manual, try pressing the MENU button, then scroll to one of the following: INITIAL SET-UP, FAX SET-UP, OR FAX RECEIVE MODE. One of these should get you to the FAX ONLY receive mode setting.

The machine is probably set to "manual receive." Check the receive mode. In "Manual" mode the machine will ring until the start" button is pressed. Fax mode will allow the machine to receive faxes as will the "Auto" mode which will allow both faxes and telephone calls automatically.

MP730 fax issue-can't receive fax, but can send out


I think I know why. You need to set the proper priority of your all-in-one Canon device.
If it is TEL priority, it means you need to have a phone connected to the fax. If the phone rings, you need to pick up the handset and check if it's a fax tone or a call. If it is fax tone, you wait for 5 secs til fax tone stops, and then hang up. After that you will receive the fax. Failure to pick up the handset will not allow you to receive the fax. This might be the most probable setting you have, hence you can't receive the fax.
If it is FAX priority, the same thing happens as TEL priority. Only difference is if you don't pick up, and it is a fax, it will still receive.
You can also do FAX only. No need to connect a phone. Device will receive automatically.
