Hi,

I think i just figured this out.

You need to find the Fax Menu -> Receiver Control Settings

Click the Fax button, then click menu and the left icon should be Receiver Control Settings.

Change to Tel Priority Mode.

Hope this helps

Try to check your cable connection maybe its properly inserted in your port. If it continues to appear try reinstalling your printer. When installing follow the steps in the installation. Disconnect the usb cable to the PC prior to installation. You will be ask to attached it to the PC during installation before completing the installation. Check also your network settings maybe some plug ins are disconnected. After installation it needs also to restart the pc so that new changes of the settings will be detected.
Please rate this solution so that I will have more bases to suggest if you will elaborate on the result.

thank you.

They're telling you your hardward doesn't play nice with their hardware. A few suggestions:

Update your printer, and see if any improvement is found:
http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&fcategoryid=123&modelid=13371#DownloadDetailAct

If that doesn't work, see if your computer has a fax modem that itself can be updated and can support the hardware. Your multifunction printer has a scanner; you can scan in the things you want to fax, then fax from the computer if the computer can fax. This is starting to look like a Dr. Seuss book.

You can also try to learn more about what the problems are and look elsewhere. Your "digital" phone is actually voice over Internet, something VOIP. If you Google for VOIP FAX you'll find some information, like this:

SOURCE: Cannot receive faxes on Canon Pixma MX870, but can send faxes

I was searching for an answer to this to make sure my new MX870 is correctly set to receive faxes. Here's one answer I came across:

First set Tel-Priority, turn off incoming ring, turn on manual/auto switch, then check how many seconds it takes for your answering machine to come on, and set it a couple of seconds after that. This should do the trick.

I have my machine hooked up with my answering machine. How do I set up to have the answering machine pick up and then once the beeping of a fax starts, it will connect.


Unfortunately you can't do that with any stand-alone answering machines. You'd need to manually activate the Fax when you hear the fax tones. What you can do is use an item like this: http://faxswitch.com/stick.html or this: http://www.usr.com/en/products/telephony-usr4000/ to route the calls to the Fax or the answering machine for you. The other option is to use a TAPI Voice/Fax Modem with your computer that supports telephony operations. Then you can use the computer to answer the fax calls and telephony software to add an answering machine to the computer. (This is one example: http://www.ventafax.com/ .)

I wish that I had better news for you.

(Note: I have a USB Voice/Fax Modem that claimed it would handle telephony operation after a firmware upgrade to the unit. It never learned how to correctly interpret the necessary codes. This may be a driver issue but I never resolved the problem. So my fax modem is still on Manual answer.)

Here are the recommended steps to connect to a wireless base router 1. Check and remove power from both your router and the DSL ROUTER/CABLE ROUTER MODEM 2. Wait one complete minute until applying power to modem then wait one minute before applying power to wireless router. 3. Ensure you have green lights across both devices, specifically, the recieved and sent lights. These same lights will tend to blink rapidly when there is active data, at times this will still blink, and a DNS error will prevent you from connecting to the internet. If this is the case, call your ISP Internet service provider 4. Check your authentication Security key on your router first, then check all your wireless devices to ensure they are on the same network name, key, and channel with the same type of encryption as the router 5. Start one device at a time and check for connectivity, if your still experiencing a problem, check the settings on all your wireless adapters, device drivers, internet browser settings, firewalls and proceed. 6. still have problems, connect a rj45 cable from the router directly to your computer to at least see if your wireless settings are bad or if the router may be bad. 7. Contact your ISP to determine if your receiving singal 8. Avoid using a splitter or parital power backup for yours routers 9. Still having problems, change your wireless router only after your ISP changes their faulty modem 10.Attempt the same process when setting up your new wireless router and or modem

Can not receive a fax


1. You enable sending and receiving separately. Does the balloon pop
up when the phone rings?

2. Make sure that Windows XP fax is attached
to the correct modem.

3. Sometimes if you have a cable for a wireless
phone attached, the fax software will associate itself with that
modem which is only present when the cellular phone is tethered to
the PC.

Computer says Orinter is Offline but is connected. Has the Fax button highlighted. Only have Copy, Fax, Scan, Memory Card to select from, which one should be highlighted for printing from connected PC


In order to print from PC you should choose COPY function. To check the connection between PC and your printer perform these steps:
  • Right click on printer driver name (Canon PIXMA MX 850 in this case)
  • Choose Properties
  • Click on Maintenance tab
  • Click View Printer Status: the status should ONLINE in order to print or scan
If still Offline,please recheck USB cable,reinstal it,or compare with another cable.

Cannot receive auto faxes


This is a known problem with the MX850 - Canon thinks it works, but it needs to be FAX Only when you're out of the office and TEL PRIORITY when you're in the office - then you hit "Hook" when you hear an incoming call as a fax tone. It's a manual answer machine when in TELEPHONE Priority

Can't receive faxes directly to my PC using Canon Pixma MX850


If you did not install Fax Services within Windows it will not allow you to receive faxes unless your have other SW that came from the factory with your machine.
