Greetings!

Yes it is possible to store faxes in memory ("Set up Back up FAX)

 

To set backup fax from the printer control panel

  1. Touch right arrow , and then select Setup.
  2. Touch Fax Setup, and then select Advanced Fax Setup.
  3. Touch Backup Fax Reception.
  4. Touch one of the options available. 

Depending on your preference and security requirements, you can set up the printer to

store all the faxes it receives, only the faxes it receives while the printer is in an error

condition, or none of the faxes it receives.

The following backup fax modes are available:

1. On

The default setting. When backup fax is On, the printer stores all received

faxes in memory. This enables you to reprint up to eight of the most

recently printed faxes if they are still saved in memory.

NOTE:

When printer memory is low, it overwrites the oldest, printed

faxes as it receives new faxes. If the memory becomes full of unprinted

faxes, the printer stops answering incoming fax calls.

NOTE:

If you receive a fax that is too large, such as a very detailed

color photo, it might not be stored in memory due to memory limitations.

2. On Error Only

Causes the printer to store faxes in memory only if an error condition

exists that prevents the printer from printing the faxes (for example, if the

printer runs out of paper). The printer continues to store incoming faxes

as long as there is memory available. (If the memory becomes full, the

printer stops answering incoming fax calls.) When the error condition is

resolved, the faxes stored in memory print automatically, and then they

are deleted from memory.

3. Off

Faxes are never stored in memory. For example, you might want to turn

off backup fax for security purposes. If an error condition occurs that

prevents the printer from printing (for example, the printer runs out of

paper), the printer stops answering incoming fax calls.

To reprint faxes in memory from the printer control panel

  1. Make sure you have paper loaded in the main tray.
  2. Touch right arrow , and then select Setup.
  3. Touch Tools , and then select Reprint Faxes in Memory. (here you may choose to print one or all faxes in memory.

The faxes are printed in the reverse order from which they were received with the
most recently received fax printed first, and so on.

  • If you want to stop reprinting the faxes in memory, touch (Cancel button).
