SOURCE: I own a Canon Pixma

for the receiving problem:
since the fax & tam shares one line, whoever answers first, gets the line regardless if it's a fax or voice.

but since you mentioned it is now not working when you switched to VOIP. fax was developed & designed with analog phone lines in mind. VOIP is digital and totally different from analog even though service providers "marketing strategy" says it's 100% compatible.

comcast for example offers a fax service, because they know that normal fax equipments will not 100% work on VOIP. There are some manufacturers that make FOIP (Fax Over IP) products.

SOURCE: Pixma MP530 Fax Problems

I am having a similar problem. You do have to connect your phone to the jack in the machine in the "Phone" jack slot, as well as have another line out to the jack in the wall in the "L" slot. That is all I know. I am having problems with my voicemail. Either I can received voicemail, and no faxes, or faxes, and no voicemail (fax picks up at specified number of rings). It is EXTREMELY frustrating. The machine is *supposed* to be able to discern between phone calls and faxes..and that is not happening.

Have you come across a solution? Aghhhhh!

I just received a fax on my mp530 and it said received in memory. How do I print it out?


I have a Canon MP but not your model. Try this.

Click Start/Programs/Accessories/Communications/Fax/Fax Console

Then click Inbox, double click the fax and print it if you wish. There are options to print as soon as the fax is received, or you can send faxes to Desktop, or both options.

Will canon mp530 stop fax mode if low on ink?


It will run as long as the ink is just low, when empty it will not let you proceed. It will take an incoming fax and hold it in memory until the inks are replaced. When empty the error will stop you from sending a fax.

I own a Canon Pixma MP530 all-in-one fax,copier, printer,scanner. I cannot send or receive faxes since I switched my Comcast voip phone line from my office to my home phone, along with my MP530. The fax...


First try one step. The line which you have connected with the Fax, unplug any other phone from that line.
Call that number and see whether it rings or you get a fax tone.
