Use manual sending when you want to talk to the recipient before sending a document, or if the recipient does not have a fax machine that can receive automatically.
  • You cannot use the platen glass for manual sending.
  • You cannot use group dialing for manual sending.
1. Connect an external telephone to the machine if you want to talk to the recipient before sending a document.

2. Load the document in the ADF.

3. Press [FAX].

4. Press [ Hook] or pick up the handset of your external telephone.

5. Dial the recipient's fax/telephone number.

Make sure to confirm the dial tone before entering a fax/telephone number. If you enter the number before the dial tone can be heard, the call may not connect, or the wrong number may be dialed.
6. Talk through the handset to the recipient.
If you press [Hook] in step 4, you can pick up the handset when you hear the recipient's voice.
If you hear a high-pitched signal instead of the recipient's voice, go to step 8.
7. Ask the recipient to set their fax machine to receive faxes.

8. When you hear a high-pitched signal, press [Start], then hang up the handset.
