Look at the hopper. It will almost certainly have a little graphic on it to tell you which way up the document goes.

If it looks like a sheet of paper with lines of writing on, the paper goes in print side up.

If it looks like a sheet of paper with one corner folded over, and lines of writing visible only on the turned over corner, then it goes in print side down.

If you can't find the graphic, then experiment: Take a blank sheet of paper. Write "Up" on one side and "Down" on the other then stick it into the machine so the writing is telling the truth. Most fax machines have a copy mode - use this to see which side of the paper the machine reads (if you can't get it to copy, fax your page to somebody and get them to phone back to tell you which side of the page they've received).

When faxing documents on a Brother 525 fax machine do you put the item Face up or face down


If you have a Brother FAX-525DT, then place the document face down with the leading edge (top) down. The scan unit is on the bottom of the paper path for documents. The manual for the unit is available from Brother's EU division's support. The direct link is http://www.brother.com/pub/eur_fax_doc/fax515_525dt.pdf . The picture for how to position the document to be faxed is on page 55 (page 65 of the PDF).

I hope this helps.

How do u load paper? front or back side up?


Hi, It dosen`t matter how you load paper, Copy paper are blank on both side, now if you are reusing paper with prints on one side then you do it by trial and error.
Now if you meant how to load document on top, then that`s a different story, most fax machines require that you put the document face down. I would suggest that you make a copy from a document face down and if it comes out ok, fine, if the copy comes out blank then you need to put the document face up instead.
Hope this helps.

In what direction to you put in the paper when sending a fax? Up or Down?Front or Back? Thanks


Up or down doesn't matter much, as the recipient can always turn the printout around :) But generally putting the documents upside down will make the fax scan the top of the page first.
As far as front/back is concerned, it depends on the construction - if you look at the document feeder you will see a symbol of a sheet with a corner bent, showing the back side. If there are stripes (symbolizing text) on that corner, you must put the document(s) face down; if the stripes are on the rest of "sheet" - put them face up.
In your case most probably it will be face down. You can always check that, and the quality of document scanning (whether the document is not too light for example) by using the "Copy" function of your fax.

Do i put the paper in with the print face down or up when faxing


Directly from the glass - face down of course.

From the document feeder - also face down, which is rather unusual.

Good luck.
