Receive a fax manually

When you are on the phone, the person you are speaking with can send you a fax while you are still

connected. This is referred to as manual faxing. Use the instructions in this section to receive

a manual fax.

NOTE: You can pick up the handset to talk or listen for fax tones.

You can receive faxes manually from a phone that is:

Directly connected to the printer (on the 2-EXT port)

On the same phone line, but not directly connected to the printer

To receive a fax manually


Make sure the printer is turned on and you have paper loaded in the main tray.


Remove any originals from the document feeder tray.


Set the Rings to Answer setting to a high number to allow you to answer the incoming call before

the printer answers. Or, turn off the Auto Answer setting so that the printer does not

automatically answer incoming calls.


If you are currently on the phone with the sender, instruct the sender to press Start on their fax



When you hear fax tones from a sending fax machine, do the following:


From the printer control panel display, touch Fax, and then select Black or Color.


After the printer begins to receive the fax, you can hang up the phone or remain on the line.

The phone line is silent during fax transmission.
