Setup Receive
Advanced receiving operations
Operation from extension telephones
If you answer a fax call on an extension telephone, or an external
telephone in the EXT. jack of the machine, you can make the fax
machine take the call by using the Fax Receive Code. When you
press the Fax Receive Code 5 1, the fax machine starts to
receive a fax. (See Easy Receive on page 5-3.)
If the fax machine answers a voice call and pseudo/double-rings
for you to take over, use the Telephone Answer Code # 5 1 to take
the call at an extension phone. (See Setting the F/T Ring Time
(FAX/TEL mode only) on page 5-3.)
If you answer a call and no one is on the line, you should assume
that you’re receiving a manual fax.
At an extension phone (on a separate telephone wall jack),
press 5 1, wait for fax-receiving tones (chirps), and then
hang up.
At an external phone (connected to the fax machine’s EXT
jack), press 5 1 and wait for the phone to be disconnected
before you hang up (the LCD shows RECEIVE).
Your caller will have to press the Start key to send the fax.
For FAX/TEL mode only
When the fax machine is in FAX/TEL mode, it will use the F/T Ring
Time (pseudo/double-ringing) to alert you to pick up a voice call.
If you’re at an extension or external phone, you’ll need to lift the
handset during the F/T Ring Time and then press # 5 1 between
the double rings. If no one is on the line, or if someone wants to
send you a fax, send the call back to the fax machine by pressing
5 1.
Using a cordless external handset
If your cordless telephone is connected to the EXT. jack of the fax
machine and you typically carry the cordless handset elsewhere, it
is easier to answer calls during the Ring Delay. If you let the fax
machine answer first, you will have to answer using the cordless
and then go to the fax machine so you can press Hook
to transfer
the call to the cordless handset.
