INTRODUCTION

Your Radio Shack TFX-1031Fax Machine/telephone uses advanced telephone and computerized imaging technology to send copies of your important documents. Your fax machine’smicroprocessor-controlledfunctions make it easy to install and use.

The TFX-1031includes these advanced features:

Memory Dialing — lets you program up to 35 phone numbers into memory for rapid dialing.

Built-InTelephone— lets you make regular phone calls or talk to the operator of the other fax machine.

Call Request — lets you request voice contact with the party at the other fax machine (if their fax machine also has the call request feature).

Built-InAnswering Machine/Fax Switch— lets you connect an answering machine to the fax machine so it can automatically route voice calls to the answering machine.

Fax Information Stamp — prints your name, phone number, and the date and time on faxes you send so the fax recipient can identify the fax source.

System Reports — let you print out the numbers stored in memory, transmission and reception journals, anduser-selectedsettings. You can also print a quick reference guide (help list) for the fax machine’s basic functions.

Copier Feature — lets you use your fax machine as a personal copier.

Group 3 Capability — permits faster fax transmission.

Fine Mode — lets you adjust the machine for sending documents with lighter/smaller type, such as from adot-matrixprinter.

Adjustable Resolution and Contrast

— lets you send the best possible fax according to the document type.

Redial speed-dialsthe last number dialed.

Automatic Reception Mode — lets you set the fax machine to automatically receive documents.

Polling — allows you to retrieve documents from an unattended remote fax machine.

Temporary Tone Dialing (LDT) — lets you use tone-access services, such as alternate long distance, from a pulse line.

Hearing Aid Compatible — lets you use the telephone with hearing aids that have a T (telephone) switch.

We recommend you record the fax machine’s serial number here. The serial number is on the fax machine’s bottom panel.

READ THIS BEFORE INSTALLATION

The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 makes it illegal to use a computer or other electronic device to send a message via a fax machine unless the message clearly contains in a margin at the top or bottom of each transmitted page or on the first page:

The transmission’s date and time

The name of the individual, business, or other entity sending the message

The sending machine or business’ phone number

To program this information into your TFX-1031,complete the steps in “Entering Basic Information” on Page 11.

We designed your fax machine to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most phone lines. However, each fax machine (and other device, such as a phone or answering machine) that you connect to the phone line draws power. We refer to this power draw as the ringer equivalence number, or REN. The REN is on the fax machine’s bottom panel.

If you use more than one phone or other device on the line, add up all the RENs. If the total is more than five, phones might not ring. In rural areas, a total of three might impair ringer operation. If ringer operation is impaired, disconnect a device from the line.

FCC STATEMENT

Your fax machine complies with Part 68 of FCC Rules. You must, upon request, provide the FCC registration number and the REN to your telephone company. Both numbers are shown on the fax machine’s bottom panel.

Note: You must not connect your fax machine to:

Coin-operatedsystems

Party-linesystems

Most electronic key systems

INSTALLATION

CHOOSING A LOCATION

Select a location for your fax machine that:

Is not in direct sunlight

Is near an AC power outlet and modular phone line jack

Is at least 4 inches from other objects

Is not near heating or air conditioner units

Does not block the ventilation openings

Also note these important considerations:

Keep cords out of the way of normal activities.

Do not place objects on top of or under the fax machine.

Do not place the fax machine on a rugged surface or on a thick carpet, which might cause a jam when you feed a document.

CONNECTING THE

HANDSET CORD

Connect one end of the supplied coiled cord to the jack on the handset. Then plug the other end into the HANDSET jack on the left side of the fax machine. Place the handset in its cradle.

0

CONNECTING TO THE PHONE LINE

Plug one end of the supplied modular telephone cord into the TEL LINE jack on the back of the fax machine. Plug the other end of the cord into a modular telephone line jack.

Note: If the phone line does not have a modular jack, you must update the wiring. You can convert the wiring yourself or have the telephone company update it for you.

Radio Shack stores sell jacks and adapters to convert older wiring methods to modular wiring.

The telephone company charges to install the necessary jacks.

The USOC number of the jack to be installed is RJ11C.

This fax machine might not be compatible with external in-linetelephone amplifiers.

43-1203.fmPage 8 Wednesday, August 18, 1999 8:37 AM

CONNECTING TO

POWER

Plug one end of the supplied 3-prongAC power cord into the AC power jack on the back of the fax machine. Then plug the other end into a standard grounded3-prongAC power outlet.

CONNECTING AN EXTENSION PHONE OR ANSWERING MACHINE

To connect an extension telephone or answering machine to your fax machine, plug one end of a modular telephone cord (not supplied) into the EXT LINE jack on the fax machine’s left side. Then plug the cord’s other end into the telephone you want to use as an extension or into an answering machine.

Caution: The polarized3-prongplug only fits in3-prongoutlets. If the AC outlet does not have holes for all three prongs, have an electrician install a properly grounded outlet.

SETTING THE

RINGER SWITCH

The ringer switch on the left side of the fax machine lets you set the ringer volume.

Set the switch all the way toward the back of the fax machine for a louder ring. Set the switch to the dot if you do not want the ringer to sound.

43-1203.fmPage 10 Wednesday, August 18, 1999 8:37 AM

LOADING AND REPLACING PAPER

Before you use your machine, load the supplied fax paper roll. Replace the paper when the ERROR indicator lights and the fax machine displays NO PAPER. Your fax machine uses up to a98-foot(30-meter)roll.

Notes:

The outer diameter of the paper roll cannot be more than 2 inches.

For the best results, use only Radio Shack fax paper. Other papers can cause poor results and even damage the fax machine.

Thermal fax paper is sensitive to heat and sunlight and eventually fades. If you need to keep a faxed document for a long time, we suggest you make a photocopy of it.

Follow these steps to load the paper roll.

1.Open the cover by lifting the release lever on the side of the fax machine.

SENDING FAXES

Fax Tips

To ensure the best fax transmission results:

Never send documents that are excessively curled, thin, torn, coated, or crumpled.

Let wet ink or correction fluid on documents dry completely before you send them.

Never use carbon-typepaper. Make aplain-papercopy of any questionable document and send the copy.

Remove staples, paper clips, and tape before you load a document. Failure to do so might damage the fax machine.

The fax machine sends any document from 6 (W) × 5 (L) inches to 81/2 (W)× 59 (L) inches.

If a communication error occurs, the fax machine sounds a long warning tone. Send the fax again.
