Hello,

I had the exact same problem!

My black phone/fax cable was no good! These are two pin cables. However told it does not matter can use a regular phone cable. I just happened to have another 2-pin fax cable here used it and it worked.

So try another phone cable. If you only have 4 pins they say it will work. However if it does not, try to find another 2-pin.

Good Luck

No matter whatido cant send fax keeps saying off the hook


Try unplugging other phones (from the phone jacks) that are on the same line. Also, remove any phone that is plugged in to the fax machine, if there is one attached. If that doesn't work, swap the phone cable on your all-in-one printer/fax with a different one. Lastly, try a different phone jack all together.

I can tell you I had the same problem with my fax/printer, and it ended up being a bad phone cable. It, the cable, worked fine with a handset, but not with the fax. Good luck.

My fax machine was working great up until this morning. I am able to send faxes but not receive them. The machine is hooked up to the phone jack and shares the line with our credit card machine. It is not...


It's entirely possible that your fax machine will just miraculously start working again. If it was hooked up to your computer you'd possibly be getting an error message, which when interpreted by its code number, would tell you it's not receiving the phone signals correctly for a period of time but soon will.

Hope I'm right,

Hpj4580- my phone is equipped with voicemail that picks up after the fourth ring of the phone. How do I set up the fax so that it works with my phone. Currently, when my phone goes to voicemail, the fax...


You need to go in and adjust the "Off Hook" setting so that it does not pick up the ring cycle before the answer machine does.

Next you have to find the instructions that will allow your phone answer machine to tell your fax machine that there is data for it.

More often than not this is accomplished by setting a software switch for example press number 4 to send me a fax. The answer machine in turns wakes up the fax machine and allow the connection to proceed.

It all in those books that came with your products. I know you keep them neatly filed away for instant retrieval, just the the rest of us do. :)

When I hit hook to send a fax I hear a click but I get no dial tone and the same on receiving a fax MP830


You only hit hook to hear the dial tone or use the machine like a speaker phone. To send a fax you press fax start. If you can't hear a dial tone when you press hook, there is something wrong with the phone line connection, or it's plugged in to the wrong plug on the machine. The phone line goes into the one marked with an L, the other with the pic. of a phone is for an additional telephone.

Faxing


Normal 0 Sending Fax Using Calling Card:

Load document in the ADF
Press [FAX]
Adjust settings for your documents as necessary
Press [Hook] Alternatively, you can lift the handset if one is connected to the machine.
Dial your calling card information responding to all calling card prompts on the fax key pad. After dialing the recipient’s number using the numeric keys or speed dialing, wait for the high-pitched fax signal.
When you hear a highpitched signal, press [Black} for black & white sending.. Hang up the handset if you used it.

Cannot figure how to set up Canon MP830 All in One Fax machine with remote answering machine


Cannot figure how to hook up Canon MP830 all in one fax with remote answering machine. I can plug in phone line to send faxes fine but when hooked up in same hole and the phone rings it goes immediately to fax and can't receive phone calls. Maybe i have phone line hooked up in wrong place on my machine. The answering machine is in our master bedroom on the other side of the house. With my last a canon also i had it hooked up to go to fax after a certain amount of rings and it worked fine. That machine got fried by lightening and i replaced it with this machine. If anyone knows what i am doing wrong i really need this fax hooked up all the time for my business.
