Send a fax using monitor dialing

Monitor dialing allows you to dial a number from the printer control panel as you would dial a regular

telephone. When you send a fax using monitor dialing, you can hear the dial tones, telephone

prompts, or other sounds through the speakers on the printer. This enables you to respond to

prompts while dialing, as well as control the pace of your dialing.


If you are using a calling card and do not enter your PIN fast enough, the printer might start

sending fax tones too soon and cause your PIN not to be recognized by the calling card service. If

this is the case, you can create a speed dial entry to store the PIN for your calling card. For more

information, see

Set up speed-dial entries on page 43



Make sure the volume is turned on to hear a dial tone.

To send a fax using monitor dialing from the printer control panel


Load the original print-side up in the ADF or print-side down on the right front corner of the
