One thing to try and take note of is when the message does pick up on the "two ring" message present part do you hear on your side two full rings before the pick up? It may be that the primary ring starts on the home side as does happen sometimes with VOIP service. If you are only hearing 1 or 1 1/2 rings before the message picks up then you might try hanging up after the second full ring thus knowing no messages are present and it should overcome your problem.
>first run fax test, press set up go to tools menu then select run fax test,all entries should be pass >then check your connections, do you have one line or number for your fax and phone?or a separate line or another number for fax and another number for phone? >let me assume you only have one number for fax and phone.. >check connections, this should be downstream connection, the fax machine using the black phone cord provided by hp should be connected directly to the phone jack using line 1 at the back of the fax and the answering machine or the telephone should be connected to ext 2 or line 2 at the back of the fax...there should be no other devices phone or answering machine connected directly to the phone jack. >next set rings to answer on the fax machine higher than the answering machine...if your rings to answer on answering machine is 4 rings, set the fax to 6 rings...if it is a voice call the answering machine will pick it up at 4 rings then if it detects that it it a fax tone then it will transfer the call to fax. >also check if auto answer is on in your fax >you can check auto answer and rings to answer by pressing set up or menu button on your machine look for it in basic fax settings or advance settings >also check if your voice prompt for your answering machine is not too short there should be like at least 5 seconds after cutting your message to allow the machine to transfer the call to the fax if it is a fax tone.
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.
If you use Dsl as a internet provider make sure you have the filters on each phone. If you use cablevision and have a wireless connection make sure you chage the phone to a 5.2ghz because you might have the wireless router with the same ghz causing a coflict. This will also create loss. of internet connections then you use the phone
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.....?
I found in the manual that if the machine doesn't answer after the correct number of rings, then it may be the ringing system used by the phone company. But I have also heard of people with VOIP (such as Vonage) having problems with this as well.
