Question about Canon FAXPHONE L170 Plain Paper Laser

Does anyone know how to stop the very loud screeching ring the fax machine makes when a fax is about to come in. Does anyone know what I am talking about? It rings for like a second, but it is horrible.

Assuming there's nothing in the manual that tells you how to stop it. Is there a hole where the sound comes from? Block it up with blu-tack or sticky tape. Regards

The ring is very loud when a fax comes in, volume control where?

This needs clarification. Is it the Handset on the machine that is ringing? If so there is a small slider control on the handset that can be adjusted down with a paper clip.But if the fax itself is to loud you'llneed to go inot programming and selct the Monitor Volume and set it lower or off.

The fax machine is making an unbearably loud screeching sound

that will be the drum unit arching you will probably need a new drum unit. you can try cleaning the drum some times that helps'

PS. remove the toner before you clean the drum unit use compress air and make sure you are outside the house it is messy.

How can i change the ringer on my fax machine?

Setting Ring Delay:
The Ring Delay setting determines the number of times the fax machine rings before it answers. If you have extension phones on the same line as the fax machine, keep the Ring Delay at a default setting of 4:
1 Press Function/Set, 2, 1.
2 Press < or > to select how many times the line rings before the fax machine answers (00 – 04) and press Function/Set. If you select 00, the line doesn’t ring at all.
3 Press Stop to exit.

Hope that's clear enough :)
