How do I send a fax from my product's control panel?

  • Do the following:

    Faxing from the Control Panel

    You can send a fax from your product control panel by entering the fax number or selecting the number from either the contact list or fax history. If direct dialing has been restricted, you can only select the number from the contact list or fax history. You can send black and white faxes to multiple recipients, but not color faxes.
    1. Place your original on the product for faxing.
    2. Press the up or down arrow button, select Fax, and press the OK button. You see a screen like this:

    3. Do one of the following:
      • Enter the fax number using the buttons on the numeric keypad and press the OK button.

        Note: If necessary, enter an outside line access code (such as 9) at the beginning of the fax number. If the access code has been set up in the Line Type setting, enter the # pound sign instead of the code.

      • Press the  Contacts button, select one or more recipients from the list, and press the OK button.
      • Press the  Redial/Pause button to redial the last dialed fax number.

    4. If you need to change any fax settings, press the OK button and select your settings.

      Note: If your recipient's fax machine does not print in color, your fax is automatically sent in black-and-white.

    5. Press one of the Start buttons.

      Note: To cancel faxing, press the  Stop/Reset button.

      Your product scans your original and prompts you to place additional pages, if necessary.

      After scanning your originals, your product dials the number and sends the fax.
