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. You see a screen like this:

    4. Do one of the following to select fax recipients:
      • Manually enter a fax number: Select Keypad and enter a fax number. Press 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 Enter Recipient field, select the recipient you want to delete, and select Remove.

    5. If you need to change any fax settings, select Fax Settings and select your settings.
    6. If you want to preview your fax in black-and-white on the LCD, press the icon. (If the preview looks incorrect, select Retry, reposition the document or change the fax settings, and repeat this step.) You cannot send the fax in color after previewing it.

      Note: If you do not touch the preview screen for 20 seconds, your product sends the fax automatically. You cannot preview images when the Direct Send setting is turned on.

    7. If you want to save your fax settings for later use, press the  preset button and add a new entry.
    8. Press the Send icon.

      Note: To cancel faxing, select Cancel.

      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: Your product does not save sent color faxes to its memory. If the Save Failure Data option is enabled, faxes that failed to be sent are stored to the product's memory and you can resend them from the Status Menu screen.
