Send a fax using monitor dialing

Monitor dialing allows you to dial a number from the control panel as you would dial a
regular telephone. When you send a fax using monitor dialing, you can hear the dial
tones, telephone prompts, or other sounds through the speakers on your HP All-in-
One. This enables you to respond to prompts while dialing, as well as control the pace
of your dialing.


If you want to use monitor dialing to send a fax with a calling card, HP

recommends you create a speed dial entry to store the personal identification
number (PIN) for your calling card. If you do not store the PIN in a speed dial
entry, you might not be able to enter the PIN fast enough. The HP All-in-One
might begin transmitting fax tones before you are able to finish entering your
PIN, and the call will fail.


Make sure the volume is turned on, or you will not hear a dial tone. For
