Well... the problem is that you are running two machines on one line. ONE of them has to take predominance. Both machines should have settings for "number of rings to answer at". It sounds like you currently have the fax set to less than the answering machine, so the fax picks up after two rings, while your answering machine might be set to more, which it never gets to, because the fax answered the call already(It doesn't matter if you answer the phone, or the fax picks up, once the line is open, the answering machine is taken out of the equation). Even if you set the answering machine to answer first, you're then taking the fax service out of the loop. I'm not sure how you're going to juggle that, since both types of machines each need control over the line to work properly. That's why we (business machine folk) always recommend a dedicated line for fax service.

Can you get a dial tone?... check that you have pluged phone line in to correct socket and that phone/fax line works with standard phone.

Welcome to FixYa! I'm the expert that chose your issue to resolve. Now let's get started. Office machines, for whatever reason, seem to be a lot more complicated than the ones you use at home. But, this should be an easy problem to fix. The process of putting in your required and company information is known as "registration" To complete your registration do the following:

  1. Press Function, then
  2. Data Registration, then
  3. Press set three (3) times. Your current settings will be displayed.
  4. Use the numeric keypad to enter the correct month, day, year and time in the following order: Year (enter only the last two digits), Time (use 24 hour time format i.e. 13:00 vs. 1:00, precede single digits with a zero (0) i.e 01:00) If you make a mistake press clear. Also, you can use the left/right arrows to move the cursor under just one digit and use the number keypad to change it.
  5. Press set two times. The display will show UNIT TELEPHONE, the TEL=
  6. Use the number keypad to enter your fax/telephone number (max 20 digits including spaces) If you want to enter spaces, press function, then space. If you make a mistake, press clear and reenter the number. You can also use the right arrow key to delete the rightmost digit and re-enter the number.
  7. Press Set twice. Unit will display UNIT NAME on 1st Press, then on the 2nd press a blank screen (not totally blank, it will have a cursor on the left and a A: on the right.
  8. Use the numeric pad (corresponding to letters printed on keys) to enter the company name (max 24 characters including spaces).
  9. Press Set (Unit will display TX TERMINAL ID)
  10. Press Stop/Reset to return to the standby mode.
Note: if you want to check that what you put in is what you want, you can print user data list. Here's how:

  1. Press function, then:
  2. Press report (unit will display ACTIVITY REPORT)
  3. Use up/down arrows to select USER DATA LIST.
  4. Press Set once, the list will be printed.
(information above from Canon)

That's about it....I imagine that in a busy office, it's hard to find time to read through a book just to do this stuff, but I have the time.

Thanks for using!

To open the USER SETTINGS MENU. Open all three of the One-touch speed dialing panels. Then press the button labeled "Data Registration".

Press the "SET" button 2 times until you see: USER SETTINGS - 1. DATE & TIME.

To open the DATE & TIME Menu. Press SET. Use the buttons on the numeric keypad to enter the current month, day, year and current time. Just enter the new numbers over the old numbers.

To set the year, enter 08, 09, etc.

Use the 24-hours format to enter the time (e.g. 1:00 p.m. would be entered as 13:00)

You can also use the cursor buttons to move the cursor without changing a number entry.

To restore previous entry, press CLEAR. Press SET to "lock in" the Date and Time.

These instructions come directly from the User's Manual.

Hope this helps.

Please change the Leithium battery fixed inside your fax machine, usually this the problem.
If the Date time is running in different date & time.

After some time see if the date/time working normally. If not change the above mentioned battery.
