Set the answer mode (Auto answer)
The answer mode determines whether the printer answers incoming calls.
Turn on the Auto Answer setting if you want the printer to answer faxes automatically. The
printer answers all incoming calls and faxes.
Turn off the Auto Answer setting if you want to receive faxes manually. You must be available to
respond in person to the incoming fax call or else the printer does not receive faxes.
To set the answer mode
From the printer control panel display, touch Setup.
Touch Fax Setup, and then touch Preferences.
Touch Auto Answer to turn it on or off.
You may also access this feature by pressing
(the Fax Status button) on the Home screen.
