Receiving Faxes Automatically (Auto Answer)

To receive and print faxes automatically, you can turn on Auto Answer mode.
Check the  auto answer icon in the upper right corner of your product's Home screen to see if Auto Answer mode is turned on or not.


To turn Auto Answer mode on or off, select Setup > Fax Settings > Receive Settings > Auto Answer.

If an answering machine is connected, make sure the product's Rings to Answer setting is set higher than the number of rings your answering machine is set to answer a call. For example, if the answering machine is set to pick up on the fourth ring, set the product to pick up on the fifth ring or later.

If a telephone is connected, and you use it to answer a call that turns out to be a fax, wait until the product's LCD screen displays a message that a connection has been made before hanging up.
