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: 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.
    4. Do one of the following to select fax recipients:
      • Manually enter a fax number: Select Keypad and enter a fax number. Select OK when done. To add another fax number, repeat the same steps. You can also use the numeric keypad on the control panel to enter a fax number.

        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, select - to insert a pause symbol (–).

      • Select from the contact list: Select Contacts to display the contact list. Select one or more contacts (select the contact again to deselect it). You can also select the Search for Contacts field to search for recipients by name, index name, or entry number. Select Close when you are finished.
      • Select from the sent fax history: Select Recent to display the sent fax history. Select a recipient from the list.

      Note: To delete entered recipients, select the recipient field, select the recipient you want to delete, and select Close.

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

      Note: To cancel faxing, press the  cancel button. If the fax number is busy or there are problems, the product automatically redials after one minute. It takes longer to send a fax in color because the product scans and sends simultaneously. You cannot use other features while the product is sending a color fax.

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