The normal problem with a fax that will not receive calls it the phone line.
The Line Voltage, or current may be low, or the signal ( DB loss) may be affecting it.
Let me give you an explaination. When you send, you physically connect to the phone line, make the dial tone and whatever is there, it goes out over the line.
When you receive a fax, it is like a remote control, with a remote you need good batteries to generate enough signal to turn on a product.
With a fax, you require an electrical signal, like a remote control to activate the receive capability. Low power, voltage or current. or static, will not allow it to receive, just like a remote with a bad battery will not turn on a product.
Issues can be. The phone cord between the fax and the jack. A bad jack, something on the outside line.
Using a digital phone line, or having another device on the same phone line drawing down the line, or picking up. A credit card machine, answering machine, even another phone can cause issues. If on a shared phone line, disconnect everthing but the fax and have someone send you a test fax. See if that helps.
But more than 90 percent of fax will send , will not receive issues are phone line related.

    This is helpful thanks for the info. In my case the fax sometimes receives fax sometimes it doesn't. Usually the same person who can send always gets through those who can't no matter what i do it fails.

Mp830 fax problem


Got an answer from Canon NZ:

1. Press the red Stop/Reset button and keep it pressed.
2. The 'Alarm' light will flash - count 12 flashes.
3. The screen on the Canon will show 'SERVICE MODE' and something #1.
4. Press the right arrow key twice to bring up FAX TYPE #3.
5. Press OK to check the country - mine showed Australia when it should have been New Zealand. Scrolling with the arrow keys shows the countries available for your machine.

Canon pixma mp830 printer/fax


I tried this: First, press the Fax button at the left.
Then, press the"settings" button to the right of the little screen.
Then, press the "menu" button to the right of the little screen.
The screen will then display a series of options that you can move through by using the triangular arrow keys that surround the "OK" button. Make your slections, pressing "OK" to keep what you want.

When done, press the "back" button to the right of the little screen until you return to the little screen's "home page" for teh fax.

I just did this and I hope it will work -- it sure makes sense that it ought to.

Cannot figure how to set up Canon MP830 All in One Fax machine with remote answering machine


Cannot figure how to hook up Canon MP830 all in one fax with remote answering machine. I can plug in phone line to send faxes fine but when hooked up in same hole and the phone rings it goes immediately to fax and can't receive phone calls. Maybe i have phone line hooked up in wrong place on my machine. The answering machine is in our master bedroom on the other side of the house. With my last a canon also i had it hooked up to go to fax after a certain amount of rings and it worked fine. That machine got fried by lightening and i replaced it with this machine. If anyone knows what i am doing wrong i really need this fax hooked up all the time for my business.
