Faxing a Photo or Document
If you need to fax another page, press the
key (for Yes). Open the document
cover, remove your first original, place your next original, and close the
document cover. Then press the
button to fax the next page. Repeat this
step to fax all the necessary pages.
If you’re sending a color fax, or a large document that fills up the memory area, the
Epson Stylus CX5800F scans and faxes one page at a time. It then asks if you want
to send another page. The fax connection stays open until you are finished.
Receiving a Fax
The Epson Stylus CX5800F automatically receives and prints faxes in Auto
Answer mode. However, you may want to receive faxes manually if you connected
the Epson Stylus CX5800F and a phone or answering machine to a phone line
that also receives voice calls. Then you can check for a fax tone from the sending
fax machine and press a button on the Epson Stylus CX5800F to receive the fax,
or allow your answering machine to determine if the call is an incoming fax.
Make sure you selected the Paper Size
setting that matches the size of paper you’ve
loaded. If the incoming fax pages are larger than the paper size you loaded, the fax size
is reduced to fit or printed on multiple pages, depending on the Automatic Reduction
setting you select. See page 34 for details.
Selecting the Answer Mode
The Epson Stylus CX5800F tells you whether Auto
Answer is turned on or not on the first screen:
To change the answer mode, press the
changes on the first
again to change it back.
You can select the number of rings that must occur before the Epson Stylus CX5800F
receives a fax using the Rings to Answer setting. See page 34 for details.
