Question about Canon PIXMA MP830 All-In-One InkJet Printer
As soon as I attach my extension cord from my phone line to the Canon it starts beeping and I'm unable to fax. Any suggestions?
When you attach the phone lines, the line coming from the wall must be put in the "L" (line) jack on the machine. The extension phone can be plugged into the other jack. If you have the line coming from the wall to your phone first, and then the extension line coming to the machine, you will get the beeping. You must have two lines plugged into the machine.

Call your phone company to sign up for service. Ask for an additional line with a "distinctive ring." The additional line is for your fax machine---whenever you hear the distinctive ring you'll know that a fax is coming through. Get voice mail service on the regular phone line as well.
Purchase a two-jack phone splitter (sometimes called a wall jack adapter) that allows two cords to plug into the same phone line. Plug it into the phone jack in your wall.
Run a phone cord from both machines into the wall adapter. Test the system by calling both your regular phone number (assure it rings and the voice mail picks up) and your fax number to see if the fax machine picks up (you'll hear a set of strange beeping tones).
