    I installed Canon Pixma MX310 on my Windows Vista machine.

    When I try to scan, it says "Cannot connect to scanner". I suppose this is the scanning driver problem, but I just couldn't figure to configure it.

    Please help. If you have helpful information, please send me an email to _jjy_@yahoo.com.

    Thanks much.

  • suegue01 Apr 01, 2009

    I have a Canon MX 310. I can send a fax but I cannot receive. I have the wire connected from the phone line in the wall to the L connection on the back of the machine. I have a connection from the phone picture on the back of the machine to the Verizon modem for my computer. I have a usb cable hooked up from the machine directly into my Powerbook G4 laptop.
    The settings on the printer is Telephone Priority Mode.

    Does someone know the right configuration so that I can receive faxes?
    Also How does this work with an answering machine? The fax is not hooked up to the answering machine. I shut the answering device off when I know I will be receiving a fax.
    Thank you

    I am not sure how to use my fax machine as I have a 4 in one printer.
    I have contacted comcast and they were not too much of any assistance.
    Can you help me to understand the hook up to use my fax machine and if I can use the same phone number that I currently have?
    Thanks,
    Sandra

Just figured out how to do this....went to canon's online tech support page.
To print the Activity Report, Coded Speed Dial List, User's Data List or Memory List:
1 . Press <FAX>, then press <Menu>.
2 . Use Help with setting up my cannon mx310 fax machine. - leftright.gif to select [PRNT REPORT/LIST], then press <OK>.
3. Use leftright.gif to select the desired report, then press <OK>. The report or list is printed.

  • MelWilson Jul 18, 2011

    Excellent suggestion for canon mx310. The report prints ALL activity up to present time, so I can see if prior faxes that I sent went through successfully, as well as current fax.

Will a cannon MX310 work with a Apple G4 ?

Posted on May 27, 2008

It would depend how you want your fax machine to work but the general setup would be:

Wall Socket----> "L" socket of Fax machine
External phone socket (has a picture of a telephone) -----> to phone handset

Don't forget to set the type of recieve mode you are seeking!!

Cannon MX310 - Fax - Waiting for report


I had the same problem.

My INK Level was Low and I had the setting "Fax Setting -> RX Setting -> Auto Print ON -> Print when no ink OFF", and so the report would not print due to the ink level being low.

Solution:
Configure "Fax Setting -> RX Setting -> Auto Print ON -> Print when no ink to ON", and the report will be printed immediately, and the message will disappear.

Fax doesnt work


Go to control panel and open the printer. For faxing, make sure you have selected "Series FAX" and not the actual Printer.

This might be the problem
