All of a sudden, my MP830 starts trying to receive faxes for every phone call, when I subscribe to a DRPD service. I checked my settings and don't have the DRPD selection available anymore. Someone at Canon suggested that the country code somehow got changed in the programming, probably due to power failure, etc. Does anyone know how to change this back without taking it to a repair depot?
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.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

About Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection (DRPD)
"Distinctive Ring" is a service provided by some telephone service
providers. Two phone numbers are assigned to one phone line so that
you will hear different ring patterns for incoming phone calls than for
incoming faxes. If you subscribe to this service, follow the
instructions below to program your All-In-One to use it. On the X125:
Press Setup once, then press Menu nine (9) times until DRPD appears on the display. On the X63:
Press Setup once, then press Menu eight (8) times until DRPD appears on the display.
Press Options until you see Learn, and then press Start/Yes.
Dial the phone number that you want to use as a fax number. (Do this from a different phone line, not from the line the fax will be installed on.)
Press Menu until you see Fax Receive Mode on the display.
Press Options until you see DRPD, and then press Start/Yes. The All-In-One detects the ring pattern and answers all incoming faxes on the second ring.
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.
