Question about Canon imageCLASS® MF4150 All-In-One Laser Printer
My Canon mf4150 has done the strangest thing, ever since I first plugged it in (although it took a while for me to realize it was doing it). I have my phone hooked into the back of the printer, as it's the only way to use my phone and fax from on the same line. But every so often, seemingly randomly (although it seemed to really like to do this when I dialed into my voicemail), the fax would override the phone function, pick up, and try to send/receive information. How do I stop this, or is it something that requires me to send it back to Canon to fix?
Go into Additional Functions ->
select <5 FAX SETTINGS> -> press OK
select <3 RX SETTINGS> -> press OK
select <5 REMOTE RX> -> select OFF
If you turn it back on, you can set the 2 digit code to begin fax reception while you are not physically present at the machine. The default setting was '25'
