    jigsawbill, you are a hero. guess what i found in my files? PIXMA MX310 setup CD ROM U 1.0. Is this the disc you mentioned? Now, I do not know ....excuse my blondness ... but my discs have all been installed by others ... i think i could take care of this if you mentioned how to slip it into the computer brains...i know it goes in my hP Pavillion home PC. I see two slots: hpcd writer must be the one; then there is expansion bay. Do i just put those in .... do I need to go to a setup area on the computer, or does it just tudor me through. You have been magnificent........

Check if you received a software disc for the fax machine portion . If not go out to canon USA web site and look up software and downloads. You should find and download the fax software, which is required to make you machine work.

    It should walk you through installation once you insert the disc. Depending on how old the software is, you may still want to go out to canon, and check with support about updates, and if you are using vista operating system on your computer, you will have to download software for vista. Other than that you should be good to go. I like to give just enough information to let folks kind of work their way through these problems, because they will pop up again and if you do it all your self you will remember and it will be much easier next time.

Lost the set-up sheet for Canon MX-310 All-in-one Printer/fax/scanner. Do the telephone line go to the L slot or the slot with the picture of a phone?

Line from the wall goes to the L slot, the telephone goes to the other telephone slot, although you do not need a telephone for the fax to work.

I can send faxes, but not receive them on Canon Pixma mx310

Do you have the phone you are answering with connected through the fax machine? If you have the machine set in 'tel priority' mode, the machine will not begin receiving a fax until you press 'FAX' and the 'color' or 'black' button. Alternatively, if you have your phone connected to the 'telephone' jack on the machine (next to the 'L' jack), you can press '2' and '5' on the telephone keypad to turn the machine on in fax receive mode.

I have a Canon MX310. When I receive a telephone call from a mobile phone, the fax machine cuts in and tries to receive. How do I stop this?

In the menu: Telephone Priority Mode will work. Also, set RING COUNT in RX SETTINGS under FAX SETTINGS to allow an answer machine to pick up the phone first. Also, you can ask your Telephone Co. for a distintive ring on you line, this will tell the unit that a fax is coming in. AT&T calls it the service "RingMaster" Good Luck, Joe Please remember to rate Techs who assist you for free :)

MX310 fax problem

We have the telephone and printer/fax on the same line and, when the printer is turned on, the fax rings when receiving a phone call. The incoming phone line is connected to the "telephone" modular jack.
