Question about Canon PIXMA MP530 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I'm using the MP530 and Panasonic 5.8 ghz cordless phone system next to each other in a home office. While on a call (mostly happens when on speaker phone), the phone line will go silent and the person I am talking to hears the fax machine tone. I can't hear anything at all at the time. Fax is set on DRPD (have distinctive ring service) but when this happens there is never really an incoming fax. Only way to stop it is to unplug the MP530 - won't allow me to turn it off once that kicks in. After unplugging, my caller is back on the line with a sore ear and very unhappy! This is a home buisness. If I remember to turn off MP530 during calls it won't happen but I'd prefer a permanent fix as I sometimes need to print while on the phone!
The only thing I can think of that would cause the fax to kick in would be someone accidentally pressing the start button on the keyboard to start a manual receive. I think the best solution for your kind of problem is to purchase a device called a "COM SWITCH". You can do a search for one on e-bay. They only cost between 30 to 60 dollars or so. Hope this helps in some way.
