Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

I have a Canon MP730. This machine shares the telephone line with my telephone desk set. The fax machine wants to activate when the telephone rings. I have the settings on the fax machine set to manual mode vs auto receive.. Any ideas on how to correct this problem.

CANON PIXMA MP 780 WILL NOT PRINT FAX. ALL INK CART. HAVE BEEN CHANGED. HELP!


Do you have a dedicated telephone line or is it a shared line with answering machine or telephone? Were you able to receive and print faxes at one time or have you never been able to print a fax? Are there any error messages or error lights?

If you are not getting error codes it sounds like a basic set-up and configuration problem. Make sure the telephone line is connected properly

See here. Also suggest referring to pages 35 and 43 of the Quick Start Guide

You may also want to check to see if you have the most current driver for your operating system. drivers and software are available here.

Without much more detail simply can't provide more specific assistance.

Canon MP730 will not fax. Sounds funny at the start like it is double dialing


Check that the "Alarm" light is off. If it is on, and remains on after a power cycle (off then on), you need to call tech support.

Otherwise, verify the line settings (User Manual, page 6-4). You probably have tone dialing and not rotary dialing. Verify that the "L" and "Phone" jack are connected correctly to the wall socket and (optionally) to other equipment such as phone or answering machine.

Also, verify that the phone line is a POTS compatible line, i.e., not an ADSL socket (or, if it is, it has the proper filters installed) by plugging the cable into an "old" telephone and verifying the line tone comes up and dialing works.

How do i set up fax to automaticely receive faxes after several rings


For a phone line dedicated only to the fax machine, the process is as follows:
  1. Press Menu/Set, 0, 1.
  2. You will see the Fax Receive window
  3. Use UP and DOWN arrows to change the setting to FAX ONLY
  4. Press Menu/Set.
  5. Press STOP/EXIT
Your fax machine will now answer every incoming call.
If the fax machine is sharing the phone line with a telephone, repeat the above steps and change from FAX ONLY to FAX/TEL This option will allow you to share the line with a phone only, not an answering machine. Once in FAX/TEL mode, the fax machine will still grab every incoming FAX call, and give a special ring (slightly different than a regular telephone ring) when it's a regular incoming phone call signaling you to answer the phone. I hope this helps with your problem. Best of luck!

Fax is printing other fax machine's outbond faxes


Yikes!! Get your phone company involved. Remember that a fax machine uses a normal home style phone line. Something is seriously messy with the phone lines in the building

How do you set up fax phone on the HP officejet 6215


hi you really have a very good choice of printers is one of the best printers from hp
inorder to set fax on ur printer you should first be sure what type of telephone line you are using
there are 2 type of line 1 dedicated -> that is directly attached for fax and has no other telephone or TAM connected if you have this line you can directly attach the phone line on the printer line 1
the other type of line is shared that means you use the same line for phone and fax in this the connection should be as :- telephone line from wall jack to the printer line 1 then from printer ext port to telephone answering machine (if any ) then from answering machine to telephone (if u have a dsl line that means u use phone and internet from the telephone line then there will be 2 lines comming out of the splitter 1 to router and other to telephone here follow the shared line connection mentioned above using the line that goes to the telephone )
now power on the printer and press the setup button (menu) now navigate to basic fax set up press ok and then go to rings to answer it should be 4 rings now go back and go to advance fax setting and then to distintive ring (DRP) select all rings and press ok now run fax test if it passes then ur fax is set up try sending fax now hope this will help you

LOUD SOUND WHEN SENDING FAX


There are 4 volume controls to access them press MENU.

You should see “MACHINE SETTING?” if not use the SET arrows to scroll through the different menus, stop when you see “MACHINE SETTING?” Now press the SET button.

Now use the up & down arrows to get to
Buzzer Volume = that the machine beeps
SET
Key volume = the tone that sounds when you press keys on the control pad
SET
Alarm volume = the alarm if something happens.
SET
Line volume = sets the level you hear at the fax is actively transferring a fax.

If you want to change any of the settings, press the up or down arrows to the level you like best and press SET if you don’t what to change that item just press SET. When you have adjusted all levels the way you want them press STOP and the levels will be remembered.

The most annoying sound to most people in the Line Volume. I have known people that like it as quiet as posable in thier work, but the problem is if you turn down the ALARM you won’t know when there is a problem. Many people like a little line volume so that they hear when they dial into a busy phone line, or if someone picks up the shared voice line.
