Fax noise during phone calls

Hi. We purchased a MX310 all-in-one and it works great except that occasionally (not every time) the fax noise goes off when I am talking with someone on the phone. The phone line goes directly into the L jack on the MX310 and the phone is cord is plugged into the jack on the MX310 that has a picture of a phone on it. Does anyone have a solution?

Thanks Mark

Call Canon directly - there is a problem with this issue and they have fixes you can download or they will replace the unit at N/C - call their support line and talk to someone

I have a separate fax line for my Canon MX310. It goes into fax mode but noting happens. I also cannot receive faxes.


The only reason to call the phone company is if you're not getting a dial tone on that line. Otherwise, have you shut down the printer and tried to reset it to factory defaults. To do that, follow the instructions below:
  • 1 Switch the Canon MX310 off using the "Power" button, then push the "Stop/Reset" button on the control panel. Hold the button down for about five seconds.
  • 2 Push the "Power" button while holding "Stop/Reset." Hold down both buttons for five seconds.
  • 3 Release "Stop/Reset" while holding down the "Power" button.
  • 4 Push "Stop/Reset" twice while continuing to hold the "Power" button. Release the "Power" button. The power light will turn green.
  • 5 Once the light is steady green, push "Stop/Reset." Wait about three seconds and push it again. Wait three more seconds and push it one final time, for a total of three times. The power light will turn orange.
  • 6 Push the "Power" button, then lift the MX310 cover open.
  • 7 Remove both ink cartridges and wait 10 seconds. Replace the cartridges and close the MX310 cover. Wait 30 seconds.
  • 8 Push the "Power" button. Wait a few seconds to allow the printer to fully power down, then switch the Canon MX310 back on using the "Power" button.
  • Good Luck Mark

Using Canon mx310 with windows 8: The printer works fine EXCEPT the font quality


I have had this problem too. It only happens occasionally, and I have never really sorted it. I have made a test sheet with the same line (including some bold and some italic) copied some 15 times, starting with a 20 point font , and decreasing down to about 8 point (Times New Roman)
Print that a few times and see if any faults are repeated on each sheet. It may just be wear and tear.

Cannot receive fax. It goes into memory. LCD reccomends new B-CRT regarding my Canon PIXMA MX310 printer . No problem sending fax,copying or printing.


B-CRT is just asking for a new black cartridge, fax will not print until it's replaced so you don't get a partial fax that you can't get back after printing.

I have a Cannon MX310 printer, fax , copier. I cannot receive faxes. Can it have something to do with the fact that I have digital phone service, what setting does it need to work.


You might try a DSL phone filter to eliminate extraneous noise on the digital line. My digital phone line had constant, repetitave clicking noise until I installed a DSL filter. Have you tried calling your fax number from a cell phone to see if there is noise on the line and or if the fax will pick up?

MY INTERNET GOES DOWN EVERY TIME THE FAX MX310 RINGS


There are some good suggestions here. Check out the solution and follow the steps. The reason dsl seems to be being dropped is the noise in teh line, and as far as I can tell this is a very common problem. Try these suggestions out but you may want to just purchase a better fax machine.

Fax doesnt work


Go to control panel and open the printer. For faxing, make sure you have selected "Series FAX" and not the actual Printer.

This might be the problem

Hi my canon mx310 will not fax any ideas


disconnect all equipments using the phone line (everything)
connect the fax directly to a wall jack (a working one)

Send a one page black and white text fax to 1-888-473-2963

When your fax is received by the Test Fax Service, a return fax will be generated to you within five minutes confirming that fax was received. This verifies that you can both send and receive a fax with your fax machine.
