I am trying to send a fax from my PC using a Canon MX860. I am using cable internet. Do I need to have my printer/fax plugged in directly to my phone line or just into my computer?


Typically a fax machine will use the phone line to communicate with other fax machines. There is a port on the back that you can plug a phone line into. I think it is the one below the port that looks like a phone handset.

The main tel line goes into 2way splitter one for high speed internet, the 2nd goes to mx 310 canon all in one , can send fax but i cant receive any , i tried my level best with out...


do you have a filter on the line? usually, you need a filter to keep the phone and data sides separate. Fax machines are generally treated as phone devices. If you are in the US, ask around, chances are somebody has a filter you can use, I know I've probably got half a dozen in a box somewhere from every time I've had dsl set up.

MX-310 has fax's in memeory but keeps printing the first page of the first fax only. Screen says check paper size. When i push ok it only will print the first page over and over. How do I change it?


If your Canon MX-310 has been set up to print faxes as they are received, then what is actually in memory is a "received fax report". If you select a particular fax in this report, it will print the first page of the fax to remind you of the content.

Your Canon MX-310 will store fax documents in memory if:
  • 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

your answering machine is probably picking up the calls before the fax try to use a separate number for the fax or just disconnect the answering machine and get someone to send a test fax to see if it works

I need to know how to connect my fax to my computer.


hi there,

May i know what is your purpose connecting those unit?

If you want your computer can dial up internet connection, just plug your phone line to computer modem port and other side plug to the phone port at your fax machine.

If you want your computer can send fax, same with above tips. but you must install fax program at your computer, so you can directly send fax through your computer.

Problem with fax


Check your phone lines. You should have one that runs directly from the wall jack to the "L" port on the machine (there should be no other devices connected between the wall and the machine). If you have other devices connected (telephone, answering machine, computer modem, etc) they should be connected to the port on the machine that has an icon next to it that looks like a telephone.

Make sure that the line coming from the wall is plugged into the "L" port on the machine. The port with the icon of a telephone over it is for an extension phone, answering machine, computer modem, etc.
