If you do not receive all your faxes, you must reset the setting on your external TAD to four rings.
If You Subscribe to your Telephone Companys Distinctive Ring Service: You may connect an external TAD to a separate wall jack only if you subscribe
to your telephone companys Distinctive Ring service, have registered the distinctive ring pattern on your MFC, use that number as a fax number and set your machines Receive mode to MANUAL. The recommended setting is three or four rings on the external TAD when you have the telephone companys Distinctive Ring Service.
If You Do Not Subscribe to Distinctive Ring Service:
You must plug your TAD into the EXT. jack of your MFC. If your TAD is plugged into a wall jack, both your machine and the TAD will try to control the phone line. (See illustration, page 2-14.)
2 - 13
Do not connect a TAD elsewhere on the same phone line (unless you have the Distinctive Ring service).
The external TAD must be plugged into the back side of the MFC, into the jack labeled EXT. Your MFC cannot work properly if you plug the TAD into a wall jack (unless you are using Distinctive Ring).
1 Plug the telephone line cord from the wall jack into the back side of the MFC,
in the jack labeled LINE.
2 Plug the telephone line cord from your external TAD into the back side of the
MFC, in the jack labeled EXT. (Make sure this cord is connected to the TAD at the TADs telephone line jack, and not its telephone set jack.)
3 Set your external TAD to four rings or less. (The MFCs Ring Delay setting does
4 Record the outgoing message on your external TAD. 5 Set the TAD to answer calls. 6 Set the Receive Mode to EXT. TEL/TAD.
(See Choosing the Receive Mode, page 5-1)
Recording Outgoing Message (OGM)
Timing is important in recording this message. The message sets up the ways to handle both manual and automatic fax reception.
1 Record 5 seconds of silence at the beginning of your message. (This allows your
MFC time to listen for the fax CNG tones of automatic transmissions before they stop.)
2 Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.
2 - 14
3 End your 20-second message by giving your Fax Receive Code for people
sending manual faxes. For example: After the beep, leave a message or send a fax by pressing
51 and Start.
We recommend beginning your OGM with an initial 5-second silence because the MFC cannot hear fax tones over a resonant or loud voice. You may try omitting this pause, but if your MFC has trouble receiving, then you must rerecord the OGM to include it.
Special Line Considerations
Roll Over Phone Lines
A roll over phone system is a group of two or more separate telephone lines that pass incoming calls to each other if they are busy. The calls are usually passed down or rolled over to the next available phone line in a preset order. Your MFC can work in a roll over system as long as it is the last number in the sequence, so the call cannot roll away. Do not put the MFC on any of the other numbers; when the other lines are busy and a second fax call is received, the fax call would be transferred to a line that does not have a fax machine. Your MFC will work best on a dedicated line.
1 Press Menu/Set, 1, 2. 2 Press or to select LETTER, LEGAL
or A4, and then press Menu/Set.
3 Press Stop/Exit.
Setting Date and Time
Your MFC displays the date and time, and prints it on every fax you send. In the event of a power failure, you may have to reset the date and time. All other settings remain unaffected.
1 Press Menu/Set, 1, 3. 2 Enter the last two digits of the year,
and then press Menu/Set.
3.DATE/TIME YEAR:XX MONTH:XX
3 Enter two digits for the month (for
example, enter 09 for September, or 10 for October), and then press Menu/Set.
4 Enter two digits for the day (for example,
06), and then press Menu/Set.
5 Enter the time in 24-hour format (for
example, enter 15:25 for 3:25 P.M.), and then press Menu/Set.
6 Press Stop/Exit.
The LCD now displays the date and time you set whenever the MFC is in Standby mode.
Setting Station ID
You should store your name and fax number to be printed on all fax pages that you send.
1 Press Menu/Set, 1, 4. 2 Enter your fax number (up to 20 digits),
and then press Menu/Set. You must enter a fax number to proceed.
4.STATION ID FAX:
3 Use the dial pad to enter your name (up to
20 characters), and then press Menu/Set. (See Entering Text, page 4-3.)
The LCD returns to the date and time. If your Station ID has already been programmed, the LCD prompts 1 to make a change or 2 to exit without changing.
When you are setting certain functions, such as the Station ID, you may need to type text into the MFC. Most number keys have three or four letters printed above them. The keys for 0, #, and do not have printed letters because they are used for special characters. By pressing the appropriate number key repeatedly, you can access the character you want. Press Key one time A D G J M P T W two times B E H K N Q U X three times C F I L O R V Y four times 6 S 8 Z
To enter a space, press once between numbers and twice between characters.
If you entered a letter incorrectly and want to change it, press to move the cursor after the last correct letter. Then press Stop/Exit; all letters above and to the right of the cursor will be deleted. Re-enter the correct characters. You can also back up and type over incorrect letters.
If you need to enter a character that is assigned to the same key as the previous character, press to move the cursor to the right.
Menu/Set. (You will hear each pattern as you scoll through the four patterns.) Be sure to choose the pattern assigned by the telephone company.
Before You Begin
You can send a fax from the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder) or from the scanner glass.
Sending Faxes Using Multiple Settings
When you send a fax you can choose any ACCEPTED combination of these settings: set the OTHER SETTINGS? contrast or resolution; send using overseas mode, delayed fax timer, 1.YES 2.NO polling transmission or real time transmission. After each menu selection is accepted, the LCD will ask if you want to enter other settings: Press 1 if you want to select additional settings. The LCD returns to the SETUP SEND menuORPress 2 if you are finished choosing settings, and then go to the next step.
Faxing from the ADF (Automatic Document Feeder)
The ADF can hold up to 30 pages, feeding each one individually through the MFC. Use standard (20 lb/75g/m2) paper when using the ADF and always fan the pages well first.
Temperature: Humidity: Paper: 68F 86F (20C 30C) 50% 70% Xerox 4200 (20LB/LTR)
