Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
The Pixma MX 434 Menu structure does not seem to have any entry to set the amount of rings before fax machine answers. If someone is home, and the phone rings and the faxmachine is in fax only mode it picks up after two rings. If it is in Telephone Proirity mode, the phone just rings and rings and rings until a person picks it up. We want the phone to ring six times or eight times and the switch over to fax. Is this not something very easy to do? I have done it with other fax machines!

Change your incoming mode from "autoswitching" to "TAM" (TAM is short for telephone answering machine" Press the "Setup" button on the control panel Use down arrow twice to select "FAX SETTINGS" Press the right arrow once The FAX SETTINGS menu appears Press the down arrow twice to select RECEPTION SETTINGS Press the right arrow once Press the down arrow unit INCOMING MODE appears in display Press the right arrow once Press the down arrow until TAM appears in display Press the right arrow once. That should do it for you If I got lost somewhere, it is in your Operator's manual - look in the index for TAM Hope it helped Ed

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.
