Question about Canon MX300 Office All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Canon Pixma MX300 fax vs voice

I'd like the fax machine to receive a fax if nobody is home but return control to my answering machine if it's not a fax. So far I can only make one or the other happen by setting the number of rings on each. The one set to the lowest number of rings takes the call.

If I make the fax (printer) answer before the answering machine and it's not a fax, the call doesn't get passed back to the phone system.

If I let the answering machine answer before the fax, it doesn't pass control back to the fax machine if it is an incoming fax.

    I tried setting it to Tel Priority mode as described on page 46 of the quick start guide (as seen on your link) but when we don't answer the phone it doesn't take a message.



    It could be the fact that it's not an actual answering machine. It's Bell's "call answer" service that takes a message after 5 rings.



    Might have something to do with the fact that the printer/fax answers the phone to see if it's a fax or not and at that point, Bell assumes the phone was picked up and washes it's hands of the call.

    FY ... for whom it may concern ...



    I went to visit my client today and we set up a real answering machine, as opposed to Bell Call Answer.



    Problem solved.



    So our suspicions appear to be correct. Once the fax/printer grabbed the call to determine it's origin, Bell assumes the phone has been picked up and the call cannot be returned to Bell Call Answer to take a message.

    I would agree to that. Bell's "answering" or your "answering" are two seperate things and as you said .. Irregardless of what answers at your end .. Bell only provides the means of communication at that point .. nothing more

Can't send or receive faxes


it's most likely the compression on the phone line or you need to set up your fax machine for proper receive mode.
Contact your phone service provider to see if they support faxes.
(Faxes cannot handle nearly as much compression as standard voice)

Canon MP830 has stopped receiving faxes. When the fax phone number is called it rings but the fax does not pick up.


Can you still send fax? if sending and receiving are not working you can try to update or uninstall/reinstall the software for this unit..

Hope that helps.............

  4. Press <OK>. [ECM RX] will appear.

  5. Press the < (left arrow) or > (right arrow) to select [REMOTE RX].

  6. Press <OK> twice. The current Remote RX ID number will appear.

  7. Press < or > to select the desired Remote RX ID number. The options are from 00 to 99.
  8. Alternatively, you can press the numeric keypad to select the number.
  9. For example, to select [38], press <3> and then press <8>.

  10. Press <OK>.

  11. Press <Stop/Reset> to return to standby mode (date and receive mode will appear).
II) Turn off Remote RX on MP780

If you want to receive voice messages on your answering machine and receive faxes automatically:

Incoming fax vs voice


Contact your telephone provider and see if they can offer you a second number for the line and "destinctive ring".
If your fax unit supports this feature, the fax number can do a double-ring where the normal number does a normal ring. The fax unit would then pick up double-ring calls.

Canon pixma mx 300 won't send or receive fax


Dear friend,
it's very important to connect your MX 300 with the telephone line the right way! Please read once more the part "Preparing the machine for fax" in the chapter "Faxing" of the MX 300 User's Guide and mind the hint "Important: Do not connect the machine and external devices in parallel to the same telephone line using a splitter (A). The machine may not operate properly."

Greetings from Cologne (Germany) to the UK!
