Using Caller ID Service to Reject Calls

If you subscribe to a Caller ID service, the printer detects the sender's Caller ID. If the sender's ID matches the condition specified in this setting, the printer rejects the phone call or fax reception from the sender.

Specify the setting following the procedure below.

  1. Make sure that the printer is powered on.

  2. Select Setup icon Setup on the HOME screen.

  3. Select Device settings icon Device settings.
