Question about Canon PIXMA MX870 Wireless Office All-in-One InkJet Printer
I have a new canon pixma mx870 allinone printer and am having problems setting up the machine to receive faxes. It will send faxes with no problem. When I try to receive a fax, the machine doesn't even recognize that a fax is being sent to it. The machine doesn't ring.
- I have been through the manual 3 times and made sure all the settings were set as recommended.
-I have tested the telephone line and it works fine.
-I have tryed changing modes from fax only to fax priority.
-I checked the telephone line connection and made sure it was plugged into 'L'. (I do not need to use a telephone on this line)
-I have tested sending a fax, and can
-I have reduced the RX speed to 7200.
Nothing I try even will get the machine to ring. I previously had a pixma mx850 and had the same problem. I need some new things to try.
I was searching for an answer to this to make sure my new MX870 is correctly set to receive faxes. Here's one answer I came across:
First set Tel-Priority, turn off incoming ring, turn on manual/auto switch, then check how many seconds it takes for your answering machine to come on, and set it a couple of seconds after that. This should do the trick.

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.
