Good question. I thinking your service provider (Bellsouth, Western Bell, etc..) might know this. I'm sure they have run across this before. I know that your fax machine will need to support this feature. For example, Brother Fax machines have a Distinctive Ring function on them for just this purpose. Do you have your use manual for your fax machine? It should tell you if it supports Distinctive Ring.

Can't receive fax. MP530is set on DRPD. Phone

DR is for distinctive ring, do you actually have distinctive ring from your phone company? Have you set the matching pattern into the Canon? It will only answer when it is sent the proper ring, unless you turn off distinctive ring.

Receiving Faxes

You will have to ask yourself the question "What has changed?" If you changed nothing, then something else has that is beyond your control. Now, you have to decide whether you are using a single telephone line for faxes and telephone, or whether you have "distinctive ring" also called "smart ring" by some companies. It is not a smart thing to use both. You can print a list of settings to see what the machine is set to do. Now if you want to use distinctive ring, set the ring pattern to the one you have chosen with the tel company. If you have chosen a double ring, and you have set your panasonic telephone to receive on 4 rings, then it will count all the rings and pick up after only 2 sequences. To see if this is the problem just remove the telephone base station from the system and then try to receive a fax.

Fax query

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.

Cannot figure how to set up Canon MP830 All in One Fax machine with remote answering machine

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.
