How do I send a fax from my product 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.

    Note: Depending on the product's available memory, you can fax up to 100 pages at a time, including a cover sheet. You can send a black-and-white fax to up to 100 contacts or 99 groups at a time, or send a color fax to one recipient at a time. If your recipient's fax machine does not print in color, your fax is automatically sent in black-and-white.

    1. Place your original on the product for faxing.
    2. Press the  home button, if necessary.
    3. Select Fax and press the OK button. You see a screen like this:

    4. Do one of the following to select fax recipients:
      • Manually enter a fax number: Enter a fax number using the numeric keypad, and press the OK button when done. To add another fax number, repeat this step; the number of multiple recipients appears in the upper right corner of the LCD screen.

        Note: If direct dialing has been restricted, you can only select the number from the contact list or fax history. 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. If your fax number requires a brief pause, press the down arrow button to insert a pause symbol (–).

      • Select from the contact list: Press the up arrow button to display the contact list. Use the up arrow and OK buttons to select one or more contacts (select the contact again to deselect it), and press the  back button to close the contact list.
      • Select from the sent fax history: Press the down arrow button to display the sent fax history. Use the arrow and OK buttons to select a recipient from the list.

      Note: To delete selected recipients, press the right arrow button. Select the recipients you want to delete and press the OK button on each. When you are finished, press the  back button.

    5. If you need to change any fax settings, press the OK button and select Scan Settings or Fax Send Settings and select your settings.
    6. Press the  start button to send the fax.

      Note: To cancel faxing, press the  stop 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.

    Note: If the fax number is busy or there is a problem, the product automatically redials after one minute. While the product is sending a color fax, other features are unavailable.
