How do I fax using the Canon Mx310

I would like to fax using the Canon Mx310

    Hi, I cannot seem to fax out, but can receive. I think part of the problem is that the fax is not recognizing the 1+area code. When I use a regular telephone to the line, I can dial out with only 7 digits. Any ideas?

SOURCE: canon mx310 fax noise

Ok, I think I have found a solution.

I have read all the posts on the net and with no success I decided to go againts the grain.

After I set all data to default:

Set printer to "Fax priority mode" and set Ring count up to enough that you have time to pick up.

It rings the amount of rings you set it to and then makes a beep sound in the caller's side. It then continues to ring on the printer and asks you to press stop if you want to use handset.

I am still testing this.

I spoke to BT, they sugest to put filters on anything which you vconnect, i know that it doesnt make any sense but they said that once youve got broadband connected to your line, all you connect next has to have a separate filters. try it out as i dnt c any other methods. It worked for him by the way!

Normal 0 Could have a corrupt driver.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and when the CD software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

SOURCE: On my Canon MX310, the display says

Try this step ... found it on Canon's website

Issue: ERROR LCD: WAITING FOR REPORT
Solution: Set [AUTO PRINT RX] to ON (MX300 / MX310)

AUTO PRINT RX When [AUTO PRINT RX] is set to [OFF], incoming received faxes will be temporarily stored to memory and transaction reports (TX, RX and Activity) remain in memory. The default setting is [ON], which means incoming received faxes and transaction reports will automatically print. The fax machine will not automatically print a received fax and will store it in memory in the following conditions.

  • Ink is low or has run out
  • The paper size and type is not set correctly
  • Paper has run out
  • The Output Tray is closed
To set AUTO PRINT to ON, please follow these steps.
  1. Press the <FAX> button to enter the Fax menu.

  2. Press the <Menu> button. [FAX SETTINGS] is displayed

  3. Press the left or right arrow button to select [RX SETTINGS] , then press <OK> two times.

  4. Press the left arrow to select [ON], then press <OK>.

    Note: When AUTO PRINT RX is set ON, a sub-menu will appear to PRINT WHEN NO INK.

  5. At sub-menu PRINT WHEN NO INK, decide if you'd like the machine to continue to print incoming received faxes if ink is low.

    CAUTION: When this option is set ON, the fax machine will not monitor the ink level of the ink cartridges. If ink is low or out, received faxes will print with streaks or blank. Furthermore, once the fax is printed, it will be deleted from memory.
    1. To print received faxes when ink is low or out, press the left or right arrow to select [ON] and then press <OK>.
    2. To store received faxes in memory when ink is low or out, press the left or right arrow to select [OFF] and then press <OK>.

  6. Press the <Stop/Reset> repeatedly to return to Fax standby mode.

I have a separate fax line for my Canon MX310. It goes into fax mode but noting happens. I also cannot receive faxes.


The only reason to call the phone company is if you're not getting a dial tone on that line. Otherwise, have you shut down the printer and tried to reset it to factory defaults. To do that, follow the instructions below:
  • 1 Switch the Canon MX310 off using the "Power" button, then push the "Stop/Reset" button on the control panel. Hold the button down for about five seconds.
  • 2 Push the "Power" button while holding "Stop/Reset." Hold down both buttons for five seconds.
  • 3 Release "Stop/Reset" while holding down the "Power" button.
  • 4 Push "Stop/Reset" twice while continuing to hold the "Power" button. Release the "Power" button. The power light will turn green.
  • 5 Once the light is steady green, push "Stop/Reset." Wait about three seconds and push it again. Wait three more seconds and push it one final time, for a total of three times. The power light will turn orange.
  • 6 Push the "Power" button, then lift the MX310 cover open.
  • 7 Remove both ink cartridges and wait 10 seconds. Replace the cartridges and close the MX310 cover. Wait 30 seconds.
  • 8 Push the "Power" button. Wait a few seconds to allow the printer to fully power down, then switch the Canon MX310 back on using the "Power" button.
  • Good Luck Mark

My canon mx310 is not accepting faxes


What do you mean by its not accepting faxes? Have you correctly set up the printer and do you have your phone line plugged into it? Some printer dont actually act as a fax machine, they tend to provide you with FAX software for your computer which automatically used the printer to simply print the document out when the software has received the fax, i would check first

Can't send fax on Canon pixma mx310


There are two buttons on the MX310... one for colour and one for black & white.. Depending on which mode you're using (ie: copy, fax, etc..) these buttons will copy, fax, etc...in either colour or black & white accordingly.

These buttons are located on the far right of the control panel with colour closest to the user, black & white above that and then the stop button above and right.

To fax in black & white (or mono as it's otherwise called) just choose the Fax mod, then press the Black button and you're away...

Hope that helps.

Hi my canon mx310 will not fax any ideas


disconnect all equipments using the phone line (everything)
connect the fax directly to a wall jack (a working one)

Send a one page black and white text fax to 1-888-473-2963

When your fax is received by the Test Fax Service, a return fax will be generated to you within five minutes confirming that fax was received. This verifies that you can both send and receive a fax with your fax machine.

How can i make phone calls on canon mx310?


Are you sure the phone cable is in the right jack? Look for the icons beside the 2 jacks - the one that looks like a phone connects to the phone. You should also apply Canon's firware update at http://www.canon.com and search for fumx310swin1040en.exe if you have Windows or for an iMac the file is MX310 series Firmware Upgrade Utility Ver. 1.040 (Mac OS X) with a file name of fumx310sosx1040en.dmg

Too bad Canon can't be bothered to email it's registered users to notify them that the machine they sold us was shipped with defective firmware and attach the fix to the message to save us from hunting for the solution.
