Send a fax by dialing from a telephone connected to the fax line
Occasionally, you might want to dial a fax number from a telephone that is connected to the same line as the
product. For example, if you are sending a fax to a person whose device is in the manual receive mode, you
can precede the fax with a voice call to let that person know that the fax is coming.
The telephone must be connected to the product "telephone" port
Load the document into the document feeder.
From the Home screen on the product control panel, touch the
Pick up the handset of a telephone that is connected to the same line as the product. Dial the fax
number by using the telephone keypad.
When the recipient answers, instruct the person to start the fax machine.
When you hear the fax tones, touch the
button on the control panel, wait until Connecting
appears on the control panel display, and then hang up the telephone.
Send a fax with confirmation
You can set the product so that it prompts you to enter the fax number a second time to confirm that you are
sending the fax to the correct number.
From the Home screen on the product control panel, touch the Setup button.
Scroll to and touch the
Confirm Fax Number
button, and touch the
Send the fax.
Schedule a fax to be sent later
Use the product control panel to schedule a fax to be sent automatically at a future time to one or more
people. When this procedure is completed, the product scans the document into memory and then returns to
the Ready state.
If the product cannot transmit the fax at the scheduled time, that information is indicated on the fax
error report (if that option is turned on) or recorded in the fax activity log. The transmittal might not be
initiated because the fax-sending call is not answered, or because a busy signal stops the redial attempts.
If a fax has been scheduled to be sent at a future time but it requires updating, send the additional
information as another job. All faxes that are scheduled to go to the same fax number at the same time are
delivered as individual faxes.
