Customer Question

I do not have a designated fax number. My canon is printerMX490. I have a home phone through my cable company. Do I have to take my phone off hook to dial the fax number or is it done automatically?

Hi there and welcome

Your phone does not and cannot be off hook for this. You need to connect the Fax to the phone line and you then connect your phone via the extension on the fax machine.

Then the Fax once setup will automatically detect the fax and print it out.

You can follow the steps to set this up here
