BEFORE USING THE FAX
This chapter contains basic information about using the fax function of the machine. Please read this chapter before
using the fax function.
POINTS TO CHECK AND PROGRAM
After installing the machine and before using it as a fax machine, check the following points and program the
Set the date and time
The machine has an internal clock. It is important to set the correct date and time because they are used for such
features as Timer Transmission (page 33).
The date and time are set in the system settings. (Page 104)
The date and time appear in the display. Make sure the correct date and time appear. If the date and time are wrong,
please correct them.
Program the sender's name and sender's number
The name and fax number of the user of the machine is programmed in "OWN PASSCODE SET" (page 101) in the
system settings. (Only one name and number can be programmed.)
The programmed name and number are printed at the top of each transmitted fax page. The sender's number is also
used as an identification number when you use the Polling function to request transmission from another fax
machine (see "USING THE POLLING FUNCTION" on page 36).
You can check your programmed name and number by printing out the "Administrator Settings List" in the system
settings. (See "LIST PRINT" on page 99.)
Paper sizes that can be used for fax mode
The machine can use A3, B4, A4, A4R, B5, B5R, A5, 11" x 17", 8-1/2" x 14", 8-1/2" x 11", 8-1/2" x 11"R, and 5-1/2"
x 8-1/2"* size paper; however, 11" x 17", 8-1/2" x 14" and 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" size paper cannot be used in fax mode.
(Among INCH sizes, only 8-1/2" x 11" and 8-1/2" x 11"R can be used.) (If your machine uses inch-based paper
sizes, A3, B4, B5, B5R, and A5 size paper cannot be used in fax mode. (Among AB sizes, only A4 and A4R can be
used.)) For this reason, if only paper sizes that can be used in other modes but not in fax mode are loaded in the
machine, received faxes cannot be printed. (For other points regarding fax reception, see "RECEIVING FAXES"
* A5 (5-1/2" x 8-1/2") size paper can only be loaded in tray 1, regardless of the mode. A5 (5-1/2" x 8-1/2") paper cannot be
loaded in tray 2 or in the optional 250-sheet paper feed unit or 2 x 250-sheet paper feed unit.
For the procedures for loading paper in the trays, see the Operation Guide for the machine.
