Receive a fax

You can receive faxes automatically or manually. If you turn off the Auto Answer option, you must

receive faxes manually. If you turn on the Auto Answer option (the default setting), the printer

automatically answers incoming calls and receives faxes after the number of rings that are specified

by the Rings to Answer setting. (The default Rings to Answer setting is five rings.)

If you receive a Legal-size or larger fax and the printer is not currently set to use Legal-size paper, the

printer reduces the fax so that it fits on the paper that is loaded. If you have disabled the Automatic

Reduction feature, the printer prints the fax on two pages.

NOTE: If you are copying a document when a fax arrives, the fax is stored in the printer memory

until the copying finishes. This can reduce the number of fax pages stored in memory.
