Send a fax
To send a fax, you can use one of three basic methods to enter numbers:
Enter number(s) manually.
Enter number(s) using speed dial.
Enter number(s) using the phone book (available only if HP MFP Digital Sending Software
Configuration Utility is installed and the phone book has been populated).
For online information about sending a fax, touch
on the screen to access the help menu,
and then touch
Send a fax
under the list of help topics.
When entering a phone number from the numeric keypad, include any pauses or other numbers, such
as area codes, access codes for numbers outside a PBX system (usually a 9 or 0), or a long-distance
prefix. A two second pause may be included by typing a comma (,). If the fax prefix setting has been
set to automatically include the dialing prefix, you will not need to enter it.
When a fax is sent, it is first scanned and stored into memory. After the entire document is
stored, it is sent and then deleted from memory. Faxes that fail to send, because the number was busy
or did not answer, are deleted from memory. If Redial-On-Busy or Redial-On-No-Answer are set, the
fax will not be deleted until all retries fail or the fax is sent successfully.
