Where the telephone line comes in from the wall, make sure that it is plugged in the "line" or "wall" port. There is probably another port call "tel" or "acc". If the line is plugged into that port you will still get a dial tone but you are not connected to the fax's modem. You hope that's it. Ed

How to enter Fax mode
Before sending faxes, make sure (Fax) is illuminated in

setting is Fax.
How to dial
You can dial in any of the following different ways.
Manual dialing
Press all of the digits of the phone or fax number.
Setup Send
Press Search/Speed Dial, #, and then the two digit Speed-Dial
number. (See Storing Speed-Dial numbers on page 5-1.)
You can search for names you have stored in the Speed-Dial

search. (See Storing Speed-Dial numbers on page 5-1.)
* To search alphabetically, you can use the dial pad to enter the first

If you are sending a fax manually and the line is busy, press

If you are sending a fax automatically and the line is busy, the MFC

If the LCD shows Not Registered when you enter the
Speed-Dial number, a number has not been stored for it.

Color fax transmission
Your MFC can send a color fax to machines that support this feature.
However, color faxes cannot be stored in the memory. When you
send a color fax, the MFC will send it in real time (even if Real Time

We receive numerous complaints that the faxes we send do not go thru. Why if a line is busy does our request not go into a queue? any idea??

If the line is busy on the other end, your machine will put it in redial state and will try again. However, the redial function will depend on the setting how many try it will make. If the setting is 2 as an example, it will redial twice only and if it is still a failure it will treat the transaction as "NO" or "NG". You can check this in the transaction list of your machine. As you said, there are numerous complaint, check if the complaint is with the same receipient, if so most probably the end machine is having some problem. If from different destination please have your machine checked by the local service provider.
