Question about Canon PIXMA MP530 All-In-One InkJet Printer
I do not know how to set up the fax machine to send or receive a fax
Scanned documents are very fuzzy ( not readable) even when set on 600 dpi. What can I do? I had a F50 and had no problems.

Receive Mode Setting
On the operation panel, press the following buttons to select the appropriate receive mode.
FAX ONLY MODE: When you want to receive only faxes automatically with your machine, or have a dedicated telephone line for FAX use only.
MANUAL MODE: When you receive mainly voice calls and sometimes faxes, or want to receive faxes manually.
ANS MACHINE MODE: When you want to receive voice messages on your answering machine and receive faxes automatically.
FAX/TEL AUTO SW: When you want to receive faxes automatically as well as voice calls.
DRPD: When you have subscribed to a DRPD service with your telephone company.
Sending from the platen
Important: When sending a double-sided document, set the document on the Platen Glass. You cannot scan double-sided documents from the ADF.
Sending from the ADF
If you have only one sheet to scan, press <OK>..
IMPORTANT: If you do not press the same button you pressed in step 5, the machine does not start scanning.
The machine starts sending automatically after the document is scanned in.
Note: Color sending is available only when the recipient's fax machine supports color faxing.
Use manual sending when you want to talk to the recipient before sending a document, or if the recipient does not have a fax machine that can receive automatically.
Sending from the ADF
recipient's voice, go to step 9.)

Receive a fax
You can receive faxes automatically or manually. If you turn off the Auto Answer option,
you must receive faxes manually. If you turn on the Auto Answer option (the default
setting), the device automatically answers incoming calls and receives faxes after the
number of rings that are specified by the Rings to Answer setting. (The default Rings to Answer setting is five rings.)

There are 2 ports on the rear, 1 for the incomming phone line, and one to plug in a telephone handset (passthrough) if the telephone line is plugged into the wrong port, the fax machine is unable to dial properly, So try plugging into the other port on the back, it's just next to the other port hope this helps

There is also a setting for the ring pattern that the unit uses to identify a fax. Set it to match the incoming ring.
EX: I have a single line and hook up the printer only when I am expecting a fax. I had to change the setting from double ring to NORMAL before it would pick up.
