# Fax sends an extra blank page

G

#### Guest

Hi all. the document, the fax cover and an extra blank page are sent,
this happens only when I fax using the scanner (copy to fax) option. It
never happens when I fax using an application. I always make sure that copy
settings (# of copies) is set to minimum(1). Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for answering, I'm using XP fax, I read the article you posted, I
tried faxing without a cover page, same thing happened, it sent a blank page,
I guess it's a question for Epson after all. Thanks again

Sounds like a question for Epson. Windows XP Fax eliminated this behavior
long ago.

Probably so. This was a common problem when faxing from Outlook, but it was
fixed with Windows XP Fax. You seem to be faxing from a non-Microsoft
product.

I have the same problem. I use an EPSON STYLUS 6400 combo
fax/scanner/printer. Whenever I use the fax portion, an extra page is always
tacked on the the end of the fax. It is wasteful, not to mention annoying.

this is a fax problem and must be handled by Microsoft. They recommend
Microsoft Fax Services.

I have Windows XP with Service Pack 2. Just a few minutes ago, I
uninstalled Fax Services and then reinstalled Fax Services. I have the same
result; an extra page is tacked on the back of the fax. Again, this is
using the "Copy to Fax" function of the EPSON CX6400.

If I use the Send to function of WORD and send it to a fax recipient then
there is no extra page tacked on the back of the fax.

So, I am not sure what to do. I assume that I am using Windows XP Fax
Services since I am running Windows XP

Interesting theory, since you are not using Windows XP Fax. How did they
explain that?
I have no repros with Windows XP Fax.
