Is this for a household landline phone or a mobile cell phone?
For a landline phone, it should be in the manual or start-up guide. If you provide the model number for the landline phone then I can look into your question further.
If you are trying to extend the ringer on your mobile cell phone, this would actually be considered a setting in your voicemail, and you would have to call your service provider to have them change this setting (AT&T,Verizon,T-Mobile, or Sprint)

The KX-TG5621 isn't an answering machine. It will ring until you answer, some answering machine picks up, or the caller hangs up.
To change the ring count on your answering machine, refer to the documentation for that answering machine. If you require further assistance, please add a comment to this question and specify the make and model of your answering machine.
The CS6419 isn't an answering machine. The phone will ring until you answer, an answering machine or voicemail system picks up, or the caller hangs up.

Change the answer machine rings to answer number to less than the fax number of rings to answer or increase the number of rings to answer on the fax machine. Would need exact model number of phone system to give more detail on programming steps. Info should be in manuals of phone system and fax machine.
In the FAX mode you can select the number of rings using
COUNT If you select <ON>, selects the number of rings for fax calls.More about this and other settings for you MP780 can be found by downloading the user guide from CanonUSA.com
the default setting is 5 rings. if you need to change that:
set the ring to answer to higher number, however, that will put the machine in manual answering of fax.
the better setting is to rest the phone or the answer machine to a lower number of rings.
Depending on the model and make of your machine, there should be an option under the fax settings of the setup menu that will allow you to either increase the number of rings before auto answer (I suggest that you increase it to at least 5 rings to give you time to answer) or that whilst you are available change the answer setting to phone. This will mean that you have to answer all calls but if there is an incoming fax (you will hear the high pitched beeeping sound) before you place the phone back on the hook press the start button.
This should solve your dilema.
