Preparing a fax for transmission

Before sending a fax, load the original (plain paper only) print side up in the automatic document feeder (ADF). See Loading an original for faxing.

Never load photo paper into the automatic document feeder (ADF) on the ESP 9; the ADF only accepts plain paper. If you load photo paper in the ADF, the printer displays a warning on the LCD screen, and will not send the Fax.
