Sending a fax

Method one: Send a fax using the control panel

Use the control panel to send a single- or multiple-page black-and-white fax.

  1. Load the originals print side up in the document feeder tray. If you are sending a single-page fax, such as a photograph, you can load the original print side down on the glass.

    NOTE: The originals for multiple-page faxes must be loaded in the document feeder tray.
  2. Enter the fax number by using the keypad, pressing Speed Dial or a one-touch speed dial button to select a speed dial, or pressing Redial/Pause to redial the last number dialed.

    NOTE: To add a pause in the fax number, press Redial/ Pause or press Symbols until a dash (-) displays.
  3. Press Start Fax Black.

    • If the unit detects an original loaded in the automatic document feeder, the fax is sent to the number you entered.

    • If the unit does not detect an original loaded in the automatic document feeder, a Fax from glass? message displays. Verify that the original is loaded on the glass and then press 1 to select Yes.

Method two: Send a fax manually from a telephone

  1. Load the originals print side up in the document feeder tray.

    NOTE: This feature is not supported if the originals are loaded on the glass. The originals must be loaded in the document feeder tray.
  2. Dial the number by using the keypad on the telephone that is connected to the unit.

    NOTE: The keypad on the telephone must be used to dial the recipient's fax number. Do not use the keypad on the control panel of the unit when manually sending a fax.
  3. If the recipient answers the telephone, you can engage in a conversation before sending the fax.

    NOTE: If a fax machine answers the call, you will hear fax tones from the receiving fax machine. Proceed to the next step to transmit the fax.
  4. To send the fax, press Start Fax Black or Start Fax Color.

    NOTE: If prompted, press 1 to select Send Fax and then press Start Fax Black or Start Fax Color again.
  5. If you were speaking with the recipient before sending the fax, inform the recipient that they should press Start on their fax machine after they hear fax tones.

NOTE: The telephone line is silent while the fax is transmitting. At this point, you can hang up the telephone. If you want to continue speaking with the recipient, remain on the line until the fax transmission is complete.

Method three: Send a fax using monitor dialing

Monitor dialing allows you to dial a number from the control panel as you would dial a regular telephone. When you send a fax using monitor dialing, you can hear the dial tones, telephone prompts, or other sounds through the speakers on the unit. This enables you to respond to prompts while dialing, as well as control the pace of your dialing.

NOTE: If you do not enter your calling card PIN fast enough, the unit might start sending fax tones too soon and cause your PIN not to be recognized by the calling card service. If this is the case, you can create a speed dial entry to store the PIN for your calling card.
NOTE: Make sure the volume is turned on, or you will not hear a dial tone.
  1. Load the originals print side up in the document feeder tray. If you are sending a single-page fax, such as a photograph, you can load the original print side down on the glass.

    NOTE: The originals for multiple-page faxes must be loaded in the document feeder tray.
  2. Press Start Fax Black or Start Fax Color.

    • If the unit detects an original loaded in the automatic document feeder, you will hear a dial tone.

    • If the unit does not detect an original loaded in the automatic document feeder, a Fax from glass? message displays. Verify that the original is loaded on the glass and then press 1 to select Yes.

  3. After you hear the dial tone, enter the number by using the keypad on the control panel.

  4. Follow any prompts that might occur.

    NOTE: If you are using a calling card to send a fax and you have your calling card PIN stored as a speed dial, when prompted to enter your PIN, press Speed Dial or a one-touch speed dial button to select the speed dial entry where you have your PIN stored.

The fax is sent when the receiving fax machine answers.
