Re: mp830 printer

Make sure you use an anolog phone outlet.

Then in setup and the area code and phone number.

Place paper in tray, push fax , then dail number to fax to. The machine has to set to receive a fax .

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.

I have a Canon MP830 and I cannot turn it on when I touch the on off switch nothing happens I have checked all the power sources and they are plugged in; any suggestions?

1. If your MP830 is plugged into a power surge / power strip, power off/on the strip.

2. Plug the MP830 directly into the outlet.

3. Disconnect the power cord and wait 5 minutes before connecting

4. Replace the MP830 printer power cord.

5. Have the MP830 serviced.

Hope this helps.

Fax stopped operating when FIOS was installed

Verizon is lying to you. fax machines are ANALOG devices and will not work reliablyon DIGITAL phone lines.

Getting to answer phone before fax or message bank cuts in

to stop the pixma from picking up even after the phone line has been picked up you need to ensure the telephone line is connected to the LINE port and not to the PHONE port on the back... the PHONE socket is if you wish to connect a phone line to the same socket Thru the pixma. (passthrough)

not sure how to stop the pixma picking up on the first ring though..... are you sure that you are SAVING the setting change.....?

Its clicking

Check and make sure that if you have something plugged into the fax/phone ports that it is installed correctly.  I had this noise when I accidentally put the usb cable into one of the ports.

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.
