Send a fax using monitor dialing
Monitor dialing allows you to dial a number from the printer control panel as you would dial a regular
telephone. When you send a fax using monitor dialing, you can hear the dial tones, telephone
prompts, or other sounds through the speakers on the printer. This enables you to respond to
prompts while dialing, as well as control the pace of your dialing.
TIP: If you are using a calling card and do not enter your PIN fast enough, the printer might start
sending fax tones too soon and cause your PIN not to be recognized by the calling card service. If
this is the case, you can create a speed dial entry to store the PIN for your calling card. For more
information, see Set up speed-dial entries on page 74.
NOTE: Make sure the volume is turned on to hear a dial tone.
