Question about Canon PIXMA MP530 All-In-One InkJet Printer
Please provide instructions on how to setup my machine to work with my phone line properly. First, I currently have my machine on fax/tel auto sw so that the machine can accept faxes and voice calls automatically. Second, my phone that is hooked up to the machine will ring (the machine does not ring) when calls come in and my call display works properly, BUT my voice message service (that I subscribe to thru my phone company) DOES NOT kick in if I don't answer the call. I DO want my voice msg service to work when I am unable to answer incoming phone calls. BUT instead of the voice msg service kicking in, the call will route to the machine - so the machine then rings as if the call is a fax. BUT the call is NOT a fax, but just a regular phone call. Third, when a fax is coming in, my phone rings (not the machine) and the call display shows the number and then the machine receives the fax - BUT the machine doesn't ring. I know the settings are not right. Can someone help me to choose the right settings so that I can receive faxes when they are just faxes, receive calls when they are just calls and have BOTH my call display and voice messaging system work properly when calls do come in. Thank You.

Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off.
I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with
the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the
printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud

You can't do that automatically on one line unless you ask for distinctive ring from yyour phone provider. Dist. ring gives one pattern for fax and a different ring for regular calls. Otherwise the fax needs to be set to manual and you answer each call and press fax start when you hear fax tones.
