I have a canon mx410 all in one inkjet printer.i need assistance with setting up the fax to a phone line. Thank you Zainy

  • Call your phone company to sign up for service. Ask for an additional line with a "distinctive ring." The additional line is for your fax machine---whenever you hear the distinctive ring you'll know that a fax is coming through. Get voice mail service on the regular phone line as well.

    Purchase a two-jack phone splitter (sometimes called a wall jack adapter) that allows two cords to plug into the same phone line. Plug it into the phone jack in your wall.

  • Run a phone cord from both machines into the wall adapter. Test the system by calling both your regular phone number (assure it rings and the voice mail picks up) and your fax number to see if the fax machine picks up (you'll hear a set of strange beeping tones).

    Maybe they gave you the wrong number. Call the number from a regular phone and listen for fax tones.

    My fax comes on when my phone rings

    You need to purchase a cross-over cable to use on your fax machine. This cable will change line 2 to line 1 for the fax so it will pick up the line when line 2 rings and not line 1.

    If you want to use a regular cable you'll have to have someone rewire the jack in the wall to swap line 1 and line 2, then just plug the fax machine into this jack.

    Contact the cable company, as they obviously have something mixed up in the installation and/or wiring of the new setup.

    If you need further assistance, please post back. Otherwise, thank you for using and rating FixYa!

    Cant send fax

    Recieving faxes
    • Plug a regular, non-digital, phone into the fax's phone line and see if you get a dial tone
      • If you do not have a dial tone, seek support from your telephone service provider
    • Dial the fax number from a phone    
      • Normal circumstance is that you will have the fax machine pick up and make high-pitched noises
      • If the fax does not pick up, put a regular phone on the fax line and see if the regular phone rings when dialed
        • If the phone rings, answer it and see if there is line noise
          • If the line is clear, call the service number listed on your fax
          • If the line is staticy or unclear, call your telephone service provider
        • If the phone does not ring, call your telephone service provider
    Sending faxes
    • Attempt to dial the fax number you are trying to send to from another phone.
      • If you hear electronic noises on the line, the other end has a fax machine on the other end
        • Check to see if you can recieve faxes.
      • If the remote fax does not answer, the problem is on the remote side, contact the recipient

    This sounds like you have smart ring on your home line. Smart ring lets you have 2 seperate telephone numbers, One for fax and another for phone, but 2 distinctive rings all one one line. Check your manual to see if you have this feature and to set it up.
