Sir, O/G FAX goes but i/C Fax not coomes Please

Have you pressed the button to enable incoming faxes on the keyboard of the printer? The button should have a light next to it so that when incoming faxes are enabled you know about it. Once you press that button the printer will allow them to come through.

You also need to confirm the settings in the printer under the fax catagory and choose the number of rings before the fax machine should pick up a call and whether an incoming fax should have a different ring tone than a regular phone call ect.

You can access these choices by using the software installed in your pc under settings. Or you can press the menu key on your printer and use the up and down arrows to scroll the features and press enter or ok when you find the one that you are looking for.

There should be two catagories for fax choices. One is usually called fax and the other fax - advanced ect. Try checking the features available in both to make sure all of your options are set that way that you want them to be.

You can also try press the start button when an incoming fax is on the line. This will manually start the printer to accept a fax that is trying to come through.

How do I set fax and phone on one incoming line?

You can't do that automatically on one line unless you ask for distinctive ring from yyour phone provider. Dist. ring gives one pattern for fax and a different ring for regular calls. Otherwise the fax needs to be set to manual and you answer each call and press fax start when you hear fax tones.

Cannot receive auto faxes

This is a known problem with the MX850 - Canon thinks it works, but it needs to be FAX Only when you're out of the office and TEL PRIORITY when you're in the office - then you hit "Hook" when you hear an incoming call as a fax tone. It's a manual answer machine when in TELEPHONE Priority

Do Not buy Canon Copiers

What kind of Canon did you buy? What model? Who installed the copier and set up your network. Did you buy it from a Canon dealer. Also, dose the the copier ahave a fax PCB. I install Canons all the time and they run perfectly. It's only my oppion, I've been working on them for 18 years... It seems you bought one that did not have all the options loaded or you got a non-industrial model.
