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.

How to recieve a fax on the Canon PIXMA MX340 Wireless Office All-in-One Printer


Take your incoming phone line and plug it into the place that says "line" on your fax machine. Plug another phone cord into where it says "phone" and connect this to your telephone. Test to make sure you have chosen the right places by dialing a phone number to fax to and listen for the dial tone. If you get a dial tone, then you have set it up correctly.

On the fax machine look for the button that says "menu". Push it and use the up and down arrows to navigate the options on the display. Look for fax set up and press "ok" or "enter" on the fax machines keyboard to access this area. Look for "number of rings" and change the fax machine to a number of rings that is less then your voice mail box if you have one. Then close and save your choices.

Have someone send a test fax by dialing your phone number for the line connected to the machine. The fax machine will pick up on the number of rings set and automatically begin receiving and printing a copy of your incoming fax.

You cannot use magic jack.

You can also choose to manually answer an incoming fax if you see that your display on the fax machine says "ringing" or incoming" you can push the "start" button and this will start receiving your incoming fax.

My fax machine will not send faxes. After a number is dialed, it will give me a report saying that there is no response/busy.


The only thing that could stop you from sending a fax or not get a dial tone, would be the connection to the phone line. Make sure the telephone wire is plugged into the line jack (not ext jack) and should go straight to the wall, without splitters or extensions. If you still cannot send a fax, try another wire or jack

Everything works fine except receiving a fax.


Check the answer mode, you should easily be able to see it in the display when in idle mode.
The CD is not needed for the machine to perform actions not requiring a computer, e.g. sending/recieving faxes.
Also, check the phone cable connection so that it's connected to the LINE outlet, and not the EXT one. Connecting it to the wrong contact would still make the machine ring (as it detects the "call" on the line) but unable to lift the call since the modem communicates only through the LINE port.

You could troubleshoot by letting the machine be alone on the line to see if it can send and/or recieve faxes.

Fax doesn't recognize incoming phone call


Try this: using a cell phone, call your fax. Listen on the cell for a busy signal, fax tones, dial tone, etc. If the fax does not answer the cell, check the following: make sure the phone line is plugged into the LINE jack on the fax, NOT THE PHONE JACK. The phone jack is to connect a TELEPHONE to the fax. If problem still exists, press MENU on your MFC, and scroll to GENERAL SETUP, FAX. Scroll to SETUP RECEIVE, and, after writing down the settings, try changing the RING DELAY or RING TIME settings. If problem is still there, press CLEAR/BACK button until GENERAL SETUP appears on screen. Scroll down to INITIAL SETUP, and select RECEIVE MODE. Try changing RECEIVE MODE settings. Write them down before you change anything.

Busy/No Response


Using a cell phone, call your fax machine to see if the fax answers. If it does answer, then hang up the cell phone and fax. Next, using the HOOK button on your fax, call your cell phone . The cell phone should ring and answer the phone call from the fax. If you do not get a connection between the fax and cell, try these: Check that the phone line to the fax is plugged into the LINE jack on the fax, NOT THE PHONE jack. The PHONE jack on the fax is to plug in a TELEPHONE ONLY. If the fax phone line is OK, go into your fax machines' RECEIVE and SEND settings and make sure they are set up properly (pulse or tone dialing, overseas mode, etc.) Print out the HELP LIST as follows: Press MENU button, then 5 on keyboard, then 1 on keyboard. Go through all the settings on the HELP LIST that apply to your problem. (Send and Receive modes, Ring Delay, Receive Options,etc.) Write down the original settings BEFORE YOU CHANGE ANY OF THEM.
