Can I reduce the size of a received fax on this machine?

Yes. If you receive faxes that are split onto two pages, turn on this setting.

To set REDUCTION mode, follow the instructions listed below:


  1. Press the Menu/Set key on the control panel.
  2. Press the up or down navigation key until SETUP RECEIVE appears and press Menu/Set.
  3. Press the up or down navigation key until REDUCTION appears and press Menu/Set.
  4. Press the up or down navigation key to select the reduction ratio you want.
  5. Press Menu/Set.
  6. Press Stop/Exit or Stop.

If you choose AUTO for the Reduction setting, the fax machine automatically reduces an incoming fax to fit on one page of letter or legal size paper/A4, regardless of the paper size of the original. The fax machine calculates the reduction ratio by using the page size of the original and your Paper Size setting.
