Plug the telephone line cord from the wall jack into the left side of the machine
in the jack labeled LINE.
Plug the telephone line cord from your TAD into the left side of the machine in
the jack labeled EXT. (Make sure this cord is connected to the TAD at the
TAD’s telephone line jack, and not its telephone set jack.)
Set your external TAD to four rings or less. (The machine’s Ring Delay setting
does not apply).
Record the outgoing message. (See below.)
Set the Receive mode to TAD by pressing Mode until both FAX and FAX/TEL
lights are on.
Recording Outgoing Message (OGM) on External TAD
Timing is important in recording this message. The message sets up the ways to
handle both manual and automatic fax reception.
Record 5 seconds of silence at the beginning of your message. (This allows your
machine time to listen for the fax CNG tones of automatic transmissions before
Limit your speaking to 20 seconds. (See Easy Receive, Page 5-3.)
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
5 1 and Start.”
Do not connect a TAD elsewhere on the same phone line.
We recommend beginning your OGM with an initial 5-second silence because
the machine cannot hear fax tones over a resonant or loud voice. You may try
omitting this pause, but if your machine has trouble receiving, then you must
rerecord the OGM to include it.
