Need to change the pickup from one ring to picking up on the 5th


This should do it:

Press the {Function} {6} then enter
the access code {2} {2} {2} {2}.
Then press {6} {1} and the {Yes} key

press the 'next' (right arrow) key until it displays "set number of rings" . Press "yes" (the current setting is displayed). Press "no" to change. Enter the desired number, then press "yes" to set. Press "function" to exit.


Please rate me :)

Change number of rings to answer on iRC3170 fax


I believe, you just have to open the doors on the control pannel. It will show you more funcation of the fax. There should be a botton that say's "Data Entery" press it once and the display changes. Next you use the arrow bottons on the control pannel to move in that mode. Scroll down to Fax Setting and press the OK botton and scroll some more till you see number of rings and change it from 5 to 2 rings. Then press OK or Set, the press Stop/Rest twice and you should be done. It's alot hard to explain then doing it. It's called panich botton pushing..... Good luck

Go through the menu on your Canon, and change the setting from auto answer to off. You might also want to change the number of rings before answering (to like to 7 or 10)

Changing the amount of rings


Pick the phone up earlier it will stop ringing......:-)

To set the number of rings-to-answer
To set or change the number of rings-to-answer, use the following steps:
1. On the all-in-one control panel, press Menu.
2. Use the < or the > button to select Fax setup, and then press tick
3. Use the < or the > button to select Fax Recv. setup, and then press tick
4. Use the < or the > button to select Rings to answer, and then press tick
5. Use the alphanumeric buttons to enter the number of rings-to-answer, and then press tick


But I still think picking up the phone earlier would be easier
