I am trying to fax on the 6170 do the sheets face up or down?

If you are sending fax using the scanner bed, your original document should be placed face down. However, if you are sending faxes using the automatic document feeder, original document should face up.

When faxing paper should the face be up or down

If you are using the Automatic Document Feeder (ADF) for faxing, place your original document face up. If you are using the scanner bed, place your original document face down.
For more information, you refer to the Lexmark Pro705 User's Guide. If you are using Windows, you can access it by going to the Start menu -> Programs -> Lexmark -> Pro700 Series -> View User's Guide.

I hope this information has been helpful. Thanks.

I need to know how to send a fax from a brother MFC-295cn all-in-one printer

Hello Frank,

Sending a fax is fairly simple.

1. Make sure you have a telephone line connecting to the LINE jack on the side of the MFC-295CN

2. Check if you have a dial tone by pressing the "hook" button on the machine while the line is free.

3. Place a page face down on the flatbed scanner or in the document feeder on the top of the machine.

*Note: If you are using the document feeder, once the page is placed in, you should see "enter fax #" on the LCD

4. Enter the fax number the same way you would dial a regular phone number.

5. Press "Start"

*Note: If you are using the flatbed option, after the sheet is scanned, you will be asked if you want to scan a second page. For additionnal pages, press 1, to end scanning and start faxing, press 2

6. If the fax goes through properly you will see "completed" on the LCD

How do i send a fax ? mfc-240c and where to insert paper.

To send a fax, you need to have a working phone line plugged into the jack on the left hand side of the printer. If you are faxing one page, place it on the scanner bed (the glass) and close the lid, then press the Fax function button, type in the phone number to fax to, and hit Start.

If you are faxing multiple pages, it is the same process, but instead of placing the paper on the scanner, you would place it in the document feeder on top of the printer, and each page would scan through individually. (Make sure none of the pages are stapled or paperclipped together.)

if using the feeder probably face up as it will likely pull the document in and invert it to lay face down on the scanning glass.

if you lift up the feeder (like lifting the top of a copy machine), then it would be face down on the glass.

there should be an image on the feeder illustrating how the document should be placed - if it looks like a page with lines on it with a bent corner then it is face up.

If you are using the Auto-feeder, it needs to be face up. If you are placing the document on the glass, then it needs to be face down.

Faxing multiple pages

If it's only one page.. just place it on the glass face down.
When faxing muliple pages you must place them in the automatic document feeder located on top of the machine.
Place all originals print side up (up to 35 pages). A message will show up in the display letting you know original were loaded up properly. Let me know it this helps.
