Setting up the fax Your Kodak ESP 9 All-in-One printer allows you to send and receive faxes, set up quick dials, and other fax options from the control panel. For more information about sending and receiving faxes using this All-in-One printer, see Chapter 8, “Faxing”...
Your printer needs only the standard telephone cable that came with your printer, connected to both the printer and to the wall telephone jack, in order to send and receive faxes through the standard wall telephone jack.
To transmit fax signals properly to your printer, you must connect the telephone cable that came with the printer to a cable equipped with a DSL filter, and then connect the filtered cable to the printer and to the wall jack.
If you use an answering machine to retrieve and record messages from telephone callers when you are not available to pick up the handset, you can set up your telephone to work with both the answering machine and the printer.
Check with your cable television provider to make sure you can send and receive faxes over your digital telephone service. Connecting the printer to a standard telephone line If you have a dedicated phone line that does not receive any voice calls, connect your Line-In printer to the on the printer as described below.
. If you have a separate fax line on that does not receive any voice calls, connect your printer to the phone line as described below. Connecting the printer to a digital subscriber (DSL) telephone line If you use a digital subscriber line (DSL), you must connect a DSL filter between the telephone wall jack and your Kodak All–in–One printer.
If it detects incoming fax tones, it will receive the fax. It ignores any call that does not transmit the fax tones and allows the answering machine to record it. Set the number of Rings to Answer for the printer to exceed the number rings set for the answering machine.
Chapter 3 You can adjust fax settings on the control panel. Windows users can also create a list of frequently used Fax telephone numbers using Home Center software (see Home Center Help for more details, discussed in this guide on page 20).
Using this feature, the All-in-One printer will automatically re-transmit the fax. Although the Error Correction mode increases send time on poor phone lines, the fax is transmitted much more reliably.
