Question about Canon PIXMA MX310 All-In-One Printer

1 Answer

Fax interrupts phone calls

I have an mx310 in which the fax continually answers whilst I am in the middle of a phone conversation. I have a standard phone line with the phone connected in series with tha fax machine as intended, I have the machine set on fax priority as required and yet the problem persists.
Very annoying as you have to physically unplug the machine to get the line back.

    the phone rings and if the machine is switched it will go to the fax noise whilst you are talking and eventually the phone is cut off. I don't think the person on the other end hears the fax noise they just get cut off. You can't even turn the machine off.

The model of my AT&T answering machine is 1720...it is linked to a Brother's fax machine...when a call comes in I am not able to pick up the phone and interrupt the message from the answering machine...


Connect the telephone line of the answering machine from the series connection of the facts machine
.Now set the number of rings for the answering machine to activate to the maximum.{This is found on the side of the machine as a reed switch.}
Now when the calls comes in there is enough time for you to allow it to the answering machine or to attend a call or to set it to facts if a document is comming.While you are away you have to decide the priority needed for either facts or answering as it is a commonline. If answering machine has to work set the facts to telephone mode.If facts has to work set it to facts as the machine will activate before the answering machine.

Canon mx310 fax transmission picks up in the middle of a call with line that has call waiting.


Very probable that the call-waiting feature is interfering with the fax communication. Best to remove the feature if the fax is on-line all the time. Good luck!

I need to fax something on a Canon MX310 all-in-one printer. I'm not connected to an actual phone line, I'm on a router that I share with my roommates...Can I still fax something?


not like that. A router connects a network to the internet. It works on digital signals whilst a fax works off analog signals so the two aren't compatible. You may want to try a program called bitware which specialises in faxing via the internet. But if your printer has a fax just connect it to a phone line and then you can fax stuff.

Fax interrupts phone call


1. Make sure your [RINGS TO ANSWER] settings are more than the same settings for your answering machine.
2. If someone tries to make a copy while the phone line is in use, they need to press number 1, as if telling the unit that they want one copy. If not, the unit will think you are trying to receive a fax and will interrupt the communication.

Be blessed.
