SOURCE: Incoming faxes not received, all else works.

Hi there,

It is your phone answering machine that must pick up in three rings or less.

Therefore 4 is too much. I would not limit number for fax machine itself.

On receipt of fax sometimes seems like it will not work when answering machine picks up in the middle. However, leave it and it will work. Sometimes sender will hear your answering machine and cancel as well. So try to ensure they don't give up at other end as well.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: cannot figure how to set up Canon MP830 All in One Fax machine with remote answering machine

This is a little late in response, but maybe it can help prevent some frustration for others. I had exactly the same problem, and I finally called Canon. They told me that the MP830 will only recognize and work with an answering machine, if the answering machine is plugged directly into the MP830.

This is really annoying. Our older, cheaper fax was easier to set up with a remote answering machine than this unit is. Maybe because it was a dedicated fax, and not a multifunction, I don't know.

At the moment, I'm trying to get Remote RX to function. This is when you pick up the telephone, realize that it's a fax transmission on the other line, so you type a pre-set, double-digit code into your handset to direct the call to your fax machine. This should suffice for our occasional faxes. I've had this machine for a couple of years, but I've never actually tried using the Remote RX setting. Hopefully it will work for us.

SOURCE: Cannot recieve or send faxes

Check out the Easy Setup Instructions available here. If you can neither send nor receive faxes, you may not have the phone line connected to the correct port, see page 34 of the guide. Also check what receive mode the machine is set for. Pages 42 and 43 explain the different options and how to change the receive mode.

SOURCE: how to hook up cable phone to work fax and

From the wall your phone cable should go into the fax/printer. Then a phone cable should go from the printer to your phone.

There should be icons next to each jack on the back of the printer which indicates where to connect the cable.

It should work from there, but you might have to go to settings and set up the fax settings such as how many singals should it ring before the fax picks up the line.

I want to connect my fax from my cannon mx340 and dont have a instuction manuel can some help me?


Plug in the RJ-11 cable at the phone jack and the MX340. Press the Fax button and then the Menu button to get the Fax Settings menu. Press the left/right arrows to highlight Fax Receive Mode. Then press OK. Select Telephone Priority Mode (you will always pick up the handset and then put it down if the call is a fax. If an answering machine is connected the Fax will be automatically answered), Fax Priority Mode (the fax will be automatically received. If you hear the machine's ringtone, pick up the handset and press Stop to answer the call.), Fax only or DRPD (distinctive ring - available extra from your telephone company). Press OK to save the setting. If you choose DRPD, you will need to teach the distinctive ring by calling the MX340 after setting the machine to listen to the ring. (See the manual.) To fax out, press Fax, put your item to fax face up in the ADF and then dial the fax number of your receipient.

Canon has the manuals for the Pixma MX340 available here: http://usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer/products/printers_multifunction/office_all_in_one_inkjet_printers/pixma_mx340?selectedName=BrochuresAndManuals#BrochuresAndManuals .

I hope this helps.

How do i send a fax?


Hi kimberley299,

To send fax using your Canon Pixma MX340 follow the steps below:

1. First, you need to hook up a phone line from the wall jack to the lower phone jack on the back of the PIXMA.

2. Now go into the menu and set your PIXMA to telephone priority mode (manual fax recieve), fax priority mode (auto fax receive) or distinctive (fax) ring/auto answer mode.

3. To send faxes, put your originals in the feeder or on the glass, select fax mode, enter the phone number, and press start.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Does the line from wall go where the phone picture is? On Canon MX340


That sounds right. Most machines also have a jack for an extension phone or answering machine. That would be marked EXT in most cases.
A quick test is to use it to call any other phone, even your cell phone. If your phone rings and squeals annoyingly when you answer it, you know the fax can call out.
Of course, to fully test it, you need another fax machine to call.
