The fax is on what you call a Distinctive Ring tone. You need to go in to the settings on the fax machine, and look for Ring type, or Distinctive Ring, And set it to 2 or 3, Dependent on how the phone rings on the fax number.

When I get a phone call the fax kicks in. How can I adjust the setting to turn on only if a fax sound comes in?


You can add more rings to answer, but the only real way is to get distinctive ring from your phone co. or a separate line for fax. When you change the setting to manual receive, you have to answer yourself and if you hear fax tones you hang up and press fax start, or receive.

Voicemail is not kicking in most of the time


There is a function in the users manual that talks about the ring delay. You may adjust this and it may help with your issue. If you have no user manual, you can download it for free from the companies website under downloads.

Fax doesn't recognize incoming phone call


Try this: using a cell phone, call your fax. Listen on the cell for a busy signal, fax tones, dial tone, etc. If the fax does not answer the cell, check the following: make sure the phone line is plugged into the LINE jack on the fax, NOT THE PHONE JACK. The phone jack is to connect a TELEPHONE to the fax. If problem still exists, press MENU on your MFC, and scroll to GENERAL SETUP, FAX. Scroll to SETUP RECEIVE, and, after writing down the settings, try changing the RING DELAY or RING TIME settings. If problem is still there, press CLEAR/BACK button until GENERAL SETUP appears on screen. Scroll down to INITIAL SETUP, and select RECEIVE MODE. Try changing RECEIVE MODE settings. Write them down before you change anything.

Faxing


If you have a distinctive ring pattern activated in the same phone line you will be able to receive fax, Voicemal, and phone calls without disconnecting the fax cable on the All-In-One.
When you have activated a distictive ring pattern.
Then you need to set the rings to answer in your fax machine to The ring pattern which was provied by your telephone company.
In the Menu/Setup>Goto> Basic fax setup> Then> Set it to either double ring or triple ring which ever is aplicable. Then Raise the rings to answer in advance fax setup to 5 or 6 Rings
The rings to answer in you phone or answering machine should be set to 4 (Always lower then that of the fax)

Fax network not working


Is your phone line plugged into the proper receptical on the fax? It should be plugged into the LINE slot, not the PHONE slot. The PHONE SLOT IS TO CONNECT A TELEPHONE TO THE FAX. IT IS NOT FOR THE INCOMING PHONE LINE. If your phone connection is correct, try calling your fax machine from a cell phone while you are at the fax machine. Listen on the cell to see if the fax machine picks up the line. If it does not, go into your fax machine's settings, either INITIAL SETUP FAX SETUP, or PHONE SETTINGS. You may have to try several settings to find one that works, depending on your fax machine. Try going to RECEIVE SETUP on your fax machines setup menu. Scroll through the settings, writing each down on paper. Try RING DELAY, RING TIME, NUMBER OF RINGS TO ANSWER , or any other settings relating to how your fax answers the phone line. Try changing each setting, one at a time, and try calling your fax to see if it answers. There may also be settings on your fax to set it up if an answering machine or telephone is on the same line.

Me again 2210xi all in one fax problem


The "tags" says no dial tone, so I wonder if you can send faxes? If not I would suspect the connection is not correct. The preferred setup would be to connect the phone line from the wall to the line input of the 2210 and then plug the phone (and answering machine) into the phone output on the 2210. Looking from the back the should plug into the jack on the right and the line to the wall should plug into the jack on the left. It is possible (??) that the 2210 will not present an autoanswer option if an active phone line is not connected. You can see the setup instructions for the Fax here. Note HP recommends using only a 2-wire phone line.

Also, do you have DSL on the same line? This can cause some issues.

There should be a setting, most likely under advanced fax settings that is called Rings To Answer. That normally can be adjusted from one to seven rings.

Answering machine turns on and I can't receive faxes.


Why don't you consider a separate Phone/Fax switch. It will answer first ring and detect a fax and then ring the fax/printer you can set that to one ring as well, otherwise it ring the answering machine that is plugged into that and you can set that to answer on 3 or 4 rings. Then you have time to pickup phone if you are available.

Thanks what I do. The boxes are about $30 They are fairly cheap.

Cannot figure how to set up Canon MP830 All in One Fax machine with remote answering machine


Cannot figure how to hook up Canon MP830 all in one fax with remote answering machine. I can plug in phone line to send faxes fine but when hooked up in same hole and the phone rings it goes immediately to fax and can't receive phone calls. Maybe i have phone line hooked up in wrong place on my machine. The answering machine is in our master bedroom on the other side of the house. With my last a canon also i had it hooked up to go to fax after a certain amount of rings and it worked fine. That machine got fried by lightening and i replaced it with this machine. If anyone knows what i am doing wrong i really need this fax hooked up all the time for my business.
