How do i send a fax?

Hi kimberley299,

To send fax using your Canon Pixma MX340 follow the steps below:

1. First, you need to hook up a phone line from the wall jack to the lower phone jack on the back of the PIXMA.

2. Now go into the menu and set your PIXMA to telephone priority mode (manual fax recieve), fax priority mode (auto fax receive) or distinctive (fax) ring/auto answer mode.

3. To send faxes, put your originals in the feeder or on the glass, select fax mode, enter the phone number, and press start.

Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I cant receive fax

Is there a dial tone if you pick up the reciever ? Can you send faxes or use the machine to make a phone call ? If you can make calls or send faxes the machine probably needs to be set to the auto recieve mode so that it automatically answers when a fax is being recieved. If no dial tone you may have a loose connection to your phone jack.

Cannot recieve or send faxes

Check out the Easy Setup Instructions available here. If you can neither send nor receive faxes, you may not have the phone line connected to the correct port, see page 34 of the guide. Also check what receive mode the machine is set for. Pages 42 and 43 explain the different options and how to change the receive mode.

Please help me send a fax on my HP 5610

Send a fax
You can send a fax in a variety of ways. Using the control panel, you can send a blackand-
white or color fax from your HP All-in-One. You can also send a fax manually
from an attached phone. This allows you to speak with the recipient before sending
the fax.
If you frequently send faxes to the same numbers, you can set up speed dial entries.
For more information on setting up speed dial entries, see Set up speed dialing.
Send a basic fax
You can easily send a single- or multiple-page black-and-white fax by using the
control panel, as described here. If you want to send a color or photo fax, see the
onscreen HP Image Zone Help.
Note If you need printed confirmation that your faxes were successfully sent,
enable fax confirmation before sending any faxes. For more information, see
Print fax confirmation reports.
Tip You can also send a fax manually from a phone or by using monitor
dialing. These features allow you to control the pace of your dialing. They are
also useful when you want to use a calling card to charge the call and you
need to respond to tone prompts while dialing. For more information, see Send
a fax manually from a phone or Send a fax using monitor dialing.
1. Load your originals, with the print side up, into the document feeder tray. If you
are sending a single-page fax, such as a photograph, you can also load your
original on the glass.
Note If you are sending a multiple-page fax, you must load the originals
in the document feeder tray. You cannot fax a multiple-page document
from the glass.
2. Press Fax.

Fax unable to receive and send.

Some basic troubleshooting tips are listed below to help determine the cause.
Check the following items :

Ensure the phone cord is plugged directly from the wall jack, into the back port of the fax machine marked "Line", "To Wall Jack", or with a wall jack symbol

Remove any other device from the line such as splitters, credit card machines, or telephone answering machines and retry.

Turn Error Correction Mode (ECM) off ,
For turning off ECM > press set up > press ok >go to advanced fax set up by using the arrow key > press ok > press arrow key go to OFF > press ok .

Receiving a fax

The answer mode determines whether your HP All-in-One answers incoming calls or not.
If you set the HP All-in-One to answer faxes automatically, the HP All-in-One will answer all incoming calls and receive faxes. Set the Auto Answer setting to On.If you set the HP All-in-One to answer faxes manually, you must be available to respond in person to the incoming fax call or your HP All-in-One will not receive faxes. Set the Auto Answer setting to Off. For more information on receiving faxes manually, see Receive a fax manually. If you do not know which answer mode to use, see Choose the recommended answer mode for your setup.
To set the answer mode 1 Press Setup. 2 Press 4, and then press 2. This selects Basic Fax Setup and then selects Auto Answer.
3 Press right arrow to select On or Off. 4 Press OK to accept the setting.
