Question about Canon MultiPASS MP730 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Hello, I have read and read the manual on how to set up the printer/fax to receive faxes but am unable to make it work. We have a combo (all in one) phone/answering machine phone line attached to the printer. I've tried various ways in the manual to get it to work ie: manual mode, ans machine mode etc. Nothing will work. Is there a external device needed? Someone said I might need an answering machine that is just a answering machine and then a seperate phone or phone line. I am trying the best/cheapest way to resolve this without calling the phone company and having them come out. Please help me if you can. Thank you so much. Leslie
I think I know why. You need to set the proper priority of your all-in-one Canon device.
If it is TEL priority, it means you need to have a phone connected to the fax. If the phone rings, you need to pick up the handset and check if it's a fax tone or a call. If it is fax tone, you wait for 5 secs til fax tone stops, and then hang up. After that you will receive the fax. Failure to pick up the handset will not allow you to receive the fax. This might be the most probable setting you have, hence you can't receive the fax.
If it is FAX priority, the same thing happens as TEL priority. Only difference is if you don't pick up, and it is a fax, it will still receive.
You can also do FAX only. No need to connect a phone. Device will receive automatically.
