How to receive a fax on my Colour Multi Function Printer ?

 

[Solution]

Receiving automatically in Fax mode

    Your machine is preset to Fax mode at the factory. When you receive a fax, the machine answers the call on a specified number of rings and automatically receives the fax.

Receiving manually in Tel mode

    You can receive a fax call by pressing On Hook Dial and then pressing Black Start or Color Start when you hear a fax tone from the remote machine.

    The machine begins receiving a fax and returns to Standby mode when the reception is completed..

Receiving manually using an extension telephone

    This features works best when you are using an extension telephone connected to the EXT socket on the back of your machine. You can receive a fax from someone you are talking to on the extension telephone without going to the fax machine.

    When you receive a call on the extension phone and hear fax tones, press the keys *9* on the extension phone. The machine receives the fax.

    Press the buttons slowly in sequence. If you still hear the fax tone from the remote machine, try pressing *9* once again.

    *9* is the remote receive code preset at the factory. The first and the last asterisks are fixed, but you can change the middle number to whatever you wish.

Receiving automatically in Ans/Fax mode

    To use this mode, you must attach an answering machine to the EXT socket on the back of your machine.

    If the caller leaves a message, the answering machine stores the message as it would normally. If your machine detects a fax tone on the line, it automatically starts toreceive the fax.

      ※ Note

      • If you have set your machine to Ans/Fax mode and your answering machine is switched off, or no answering machine is connected to EXT socket, your machine automatically goes into Fax mode after a predefined number of rings.

      • If your answering machine has a user-selectable ring counter, set the machine to answer incoming calls within 1 ring.

      • If you are in Tel mode (manual reception) when the answering machine is connected to your machine, you must switch off the answering machine, or the outgoing message from the answering machine will interrupt your phone conversation
