Understanding fax options
Original: Opens a screen where you can choose the size of the documents you are going to fax.
• Touching any of the paper size buttons on the follow-on screen will make that your selection
and return you to the Fax Options Screen.
• When Original Size is set to Mixed Sizes, you can scan different size original documents
(letter and legal size pages). They will be scaled automatically to fit the selected output media
Content: Used to select the type of document you are scanning (for example, Text, Text/Photo, or
Photo). Content affects the quality and size of your scan by selecting how the scanner will handle the
information on the original document.
• The Text setting will emphasize sharp, black, high-resolution text against a clean, white
The Text/Photo setting is used when the original documents are a mixture of text and
graphics or pictures.
• The Photo setting tells the scanner to pay extra attention to graphics and pictures. This
setting takes longer to scan but emphasizes a reproduction of the full dynamic range of tones
in the original document. This increases the amount of information saved.
Sides: Informs the MFP if the original document is simplex (printed on one side) or duplex (printed
on both sides). This lets the scanner know what needs to be scanned for inclusion in the fax.
Resolution: Increases how closely the scanner examines the document you wish to fax. If faxing a
photograph, a drawing with fine lines, or a document with very small text, increase the Resolution
setting. This will increase the amount of time required for the scan and will increase the quality of the
fax output. Standard is suitable for most documents. Fine is recommended for documents with small
print. Super fine is recommended for original documents with fine detail. Ultra fine is recommended
for documents with pictures or photographs.
Darkness: Adjusts how light or dark your faxes will turn out in relation to the original document.
Advanced Options: Accesses the Delayed Send, Transmission Log, Scan Preview, Edge Erase,
Advanced Duplex, or Fax Queue settings.
Delayed Send: Sets up a fax that will be sent at a later time or date. After setting up your fax,
select Delayed Send, enter the time and date you would like to transmit your fax, and then
