Resending Faxes (Redialing a Busy Number)

There are two methods of redialing: Automatic redialing and Manual redialing.

Automatic Redialing

Manual Redialing

You can redial to the recipients dialed by entering the fax/telephone numbers.

Enable and specify the automatic redialing setting on Auto redial in Advanced FAX settings under FAX settings.

Caution

While automatic redialing, the unsent fax is stored in the machine's memory temporarily until the sending fax is complete. If a power failure occurs or you unplug the power cord before automatic redialing is complete, all faxes stored in the machine's memory are deleted and not sent.

Caution

To cancel automatic redialing, wait until the machine starts redialing, then press the Stop button.
