To receive faxes when you hear fax tones
If you have a telephone line that receives both fax and telephone calls, and you hear fax tones when
you answer the telephone, you can start the receiving process in one of two ways:
If you are close to the all-in-one, press
on the control panel.
When you answer any telephone connected to the line (an extension telephone) and hear fax
tones, the all-in-one should begin answering the call automatically. If not, press 1-2-3 in
sequence on the telephone keypad (in tone-dialing mode only), listen for fax transmission
sounds, and then hang up.
In order for the second method to work, the extension telephone setting must be set
to YES. See
