You can easily send a single- or multiple-page black-and-white or color fax by using the printer

control panel.


If you need to print confirmation that your faxes were successfully sent, fax confirmation

must be enabled.


You can also send a fax manually from a phone or by using monitor dialing. These features

allow you to control the pace of your dialing. They are also useful when you want to use a calling card

to charge the call and you have to respond to tone prompts while dialing.

resolution or contrast of your fax.
