How do I clear the in use alarm on a canon mx340 printer?


The in use alarm appears to be related to fax reception and printing. There are some options below that you could try:-
Memory Reception If the machine receives a fax under one of the following conditions, it will not be able to print the received fax and will store it in its memory. The In Use/Memory lamp is lit and Received in memory is displayed on the LCD. When the problem is resolved as described, the fax stored in memory is printed automatically.
  • Ink has run out: Replace the FINE Cartridge.

    • You can set the machine to forcibly print a received fax even if the ink has run out.
      However, part or all of the fax may not be printed since the ink has run out.
      Also, the contents of the fax will not be stored in memory.
      If the ink has already run out, we recommend that OFF be selected for Auto print in FAX user settings to store the received fax in memory and print the fax manually after replacing the FINE Cartridge. After you replace the FINE Cartridge and select ON for Auto print, the fax stored in memory will be printed automatically.
  • Paper has run out: Load the paper and press the OK button.
  • A different size of paper from that specified by Page size is loaded:
    Load the same size of paper as that specified by Page size, then press the OK button.
  • Page size is set to other than A4, 8.5"x11"(LTR), or Legal (or 8.5"x14"):
    Set Page size to A4, 8.5"x11"(LTR), or Legal (or 8.5"x14").
  • Media type is set to other than Plain paper:
    Set Media type to Plain paper.
  • You pressed the Stop button to cancel printing of a fax:
    Press the FAX button
Alternatively turn the printer off, open the devices and printers section of Control Panel, right click on your printer and select "see what's printing" and left click on this. A window will pop up which may or may not contain a list of documents. If it does these must be cancelled (Menu - Printer - Cancel all documents). Once all documents have gone from the list turn the printer on and try to print.
Other than the above suggestions I would need to know more about your OS and exact problem. Hope this helps.

I recently purchased a Canon PIXMA MX410 printer and was wondering if there was a way to turn the volume down when faxing? It is so loud. Thankyou.


Machine Settings

This section describes the items you can set or change in the Fax settings or Device settings menu available by pressing the Menu button.

For details on setting or changing, refer to the on-screen manual: Advanced Guide.


Sound control


Adjusts the volume of the audible tones, such as the keypad tone generated when pressing the buttons on the Operation Panel, the alarm emitted when there is an error, the offhook alarm that sounds when the handset is off hook, and the line monitor.


  • Sound control

    Selects the volume.

    • Keypad volume

      Selects the beep volume when pressing the buttons on the Operation Panel.

    • Alarm volume

      Selects the alarm volume.

    • Line monitor volume

      Selects the line monitor volume.

    • Offhook alarm

      Selects the alarm volume when the phone receiver is not put on the hook properly.

    Redcare alarm system won't work with sharp


    Yes you are correct.
    What happens is most , not all things attached to the same line as the fax, that require monitoring will interfere with the incoming fax.
    I can go through the technical explanations but it has mostly to do with the ammount of signal received to the fax and it not being high enough to turn on the fax.
    The best explanation I can give you is to compare it to trying to use a TV remote with low batteries. It may be enough power but most of the time it will not be.
    The cure for your problem is to seperate the fax from teh alarm system.
    Unlikely any type of filters will work. I have run into this issue with alarm systems, credit card readers, etc when attached to the same line as a fax.

    Good Luck!

    Cannot get messages out of memory


    We switch our off, wait 10 seconds, switch on & fax is printed. We don't think we have lost any faxes this way but be aware it might happen.

    Alarm, 5003 error, just set up tonight


    You could try a DSL filter, but I don't have much faith in them. Vonage is DIGITAL, fax machines are ANALOG and require a POTS (Plain Old Telephone System) phone line.

    What is the remedy for copier's red alarm button blinking & fax not working?


    Do you mean the "Out of paper" alarm? Check that all paper trays have paper. The by-pass tray should be prperly set to receiv "Legal" size paper and have that size paper in that tray.

    Alarm setting


    The alarm sounds for only 5 seconds.When you receive a fax and the paper jams, the fax will be received into memory. When it has finished receiving the fax, the alarm will sound momentarily. When you remove the jammed paper, the fax will print automatically.

    Received in Memory


    check the paper sensor at the bottom of where the paper comes out! this has a tendency to pop out of its little holder. Use a flashlight to see it! the sensor is blocking the beam.
