Question about Canon Fax Machines
We have misplaced the instruction manual for an old Canon Fax-L300 - How do we change the date, time, telephone number and name shown on faxes
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.

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:
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.

Tips for a great answer:
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.
