Fax a Document : Connect a Phone or Answering Machine

Connect a Phone or Answering Machine
You can connect the WorkForce 520 Series to a phone line, and connect a telephone or answering machine to the same phone line so you can use it to make voice calls.
Connect the phone cable from the wall jack to the LINE port on the back of your product.
If you have a DSL Internet connection, you must plug a DSL filter into the wall jack or you won’t be able to use the fax or telephone equipment as described below. Contact your DSL provider for the necessary filter.
To use a telephone or answering machine, you need a second phone cable. Before connecting the cable, remove the cap from the EXT. port on the back of your product, if present.
If you’ve connected an answering machine, you may need to adjust the number of rings after which the fax picks up. (The number of rings to answer must be one more than for the answering machine.)
A phone or answering machine must be connected to the EXT. port on your product to detect an incoming fax call when a phone is picked up. If a fax call comes in, and you pick up the phone without having a phone or answering machine connected to the EXT. port, the call will be disconnected when you hang up and your product will not receive the fax.
In Auto Answer mode, if the incoming call is a fax and you pick up the phone or the answering machine answers, the WorkForce 520 Series automatically begins receiving the fax. If the other party is a caller, the phone can be used as normal or a message can be left on the answering machine.
