You can set up your printer to receive faxes automatically or manually. Even if your printer is set up to receive faxes automatically, you can still receive them manually at any time.
Receiving a fax automatically
To receive faxes automatically:
Load letter (8.5 x 11 in. / 22 x 28 cm) or A4 (8.3 x 11.7 in. / 21 x 30 cm) plain paper into the paper tray (see Loading plain paper).
Make sure the Auto Answer LED is on. (If not, press Auto Answer on the control panel to turn it on.)
The printer will receive all incoming faxes automatically.
|IMPORTANT:||Whenever there is an incoming fax, the printer LCD shows the message, "Incoming Call. Press START to Answer." If the Auto Answer LED is on, you do not need to press START to receive the fax. The printer will automatically receive the fax after the number of rings that you selected for the fax settings (see Rings to Answer under Selecting fax settings). However, you may choose to receive the fax sooner by pressing either START button. (Whether the fax is color or black-and-white is determined by the sender.)|
If Auto Answer is turned off for your printer, you can receive incoming faxes manually. You can receive any incoming fax manually, even if Auto Answer is turned on.
To receive a fax manually:
When you hear the phone ring, press Start Black or Start Color.
NOTE: Pressing either Start button prompts the printer to receive the fax. It does not matter which Start button you press; whether a fax is color or black-and-white is determined by the sender.

When you hear the distinctive ring of your fax line or know that the incoming call is a fax:
