Make sure your fax line just connect to one device (just fax device)
sometimes other device cause this problem.(and you must know most (old ) telephone lines can handle up to 3 devices (if you connect more than 3 devices, you may have some noise on the line or disconnected other devices issue or even your line fuse may damaged due to low amperage.
what you can do?:
1- disconnect another device and check
2-use another line
3-use ADSL Splitter to decrease your noise on the line
4-check your telephone cable for probably damaged
5-go to certified repair center for checking
If you have specifically requested a "double" ring pattern for your fax from Telus, then you have the right setting, otherwise, select the Any ring pattern to avoid fax transmission failure.

If your telephone service offers ditictive rng you can order another number and your line will ring differently and you can set you G3 Fax to answer the distinctive ring and you regular call will be picked up by the answering machine.
unplug your fax machine and plug in a normal phone. call the fax line. let it ring a few times. if the phone rings, but not the fax machine, check the cord of the fax machine and replace it. if the fax machine still does it, there is a short circuit somewhere in the machine. it is most likely in or around the jack that connects it to the phone cord, check for corrosion or bent contact pins.
if it rings only once or not at all, then check the phone jack for corrosion. trace it all the way back to where your phone line connects to your house. if it is still not ringing, call your telco to get them to check thier equipment.
Press dataregestration,use the arrow to go to rx settings,select rx settings with the set button,go to incoming ring,select and switch it to on,and then cange the ring count to the amount of rings you desire.
This sounds like you have smart ring on your home line. Smart ring lets you have 2 seperate telephone numbers, One for fax and another for phone, but 2 distinctive rings all one one line. Check your manual to see if you have this feature and to set it up.
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.
Well... the problem is that you are running two machines on one line. ONE of them has to take predominance.
Both machines should have settings for "number of rings to answer at". It sounds like you currently have the fax set to less than the answering machine, so the fax picks up after two rings, while your answering machine might be set to more, which it never gets to, because the fax answered the call already(It doesn't matter if you answer the phone, or the fax picks up, once the line is open, the answering machine is taken out of the equation). Even if you set the answering machine to answer first, you're then taking the fax service out of the loop.
I'm not sure how you're going to juggle that, since both types of machines each need control over the line to work properly.
That's why we (business machine folk) always recommend a dedicated line for fax service.
