READ THIS BEFORE INSTALLATION

We have designed your fax machine to conform to federal regulations, and you can connect it to most telephone lines. However, each device that you connect to the phone line draws power from the phone line. We refer to this power draw as the device’s Ringer Equivalence Number, or REN (the REN is shown on the back of your fax machine).

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

Warning: To prevent fire or shock hazard, do not expose this product to rain or moisture.

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 phone company. Both numbers are shown on the bottom of your fax machine.

Note: You must not connect your fax machine to:

Coin-operatedsystems

Party-linesystems

Most electronic key phone systems

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

The date, time, identification of the business, individual, or other entity

The telephone number of the sending machine.

To program this information into your fax machine, see Page 13.

THE FCC WANTS YOU TO KNOW

In the unlikely event that your fax machine causes problems on the phone line, the phone company can disconnect your service. The phone company attempts to notify you in advance. If advance notice is not practical, the phone company notifies you of your right to file a complaint with the FCC.

Also, the phone company can make changes to its lines, equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect the operation of your telephone equipment. The phone company notifies you of these changes in advance, so you can take steps to prevent interruption of your phone service.

LIGHTNING

Your fax machine has built-inprotection circuits to reduce the risk of damage from surges in phone and power line current. These protection circuits meet or exceed FCC requirements. However, lightning striking the phone line or power lines can damage your fax machine.

Lightning damage is not common. Nevertheless, if you live in an area that has frequent electrical storms, we suggest that you unplug your fax machine during storms to reduce the possibility of damage.

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.

CONNECTING TO THE PHONE LINE

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

Keeps cords out of the way of normal activities.

Also note these important considerations:

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

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

Note: Your fax machine connects directly to a modular telephone line jack. If your telephone wiring does not have a modular jack, you can update 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.

CONNECTING TO

POWER

Plug the power cord into a standard grounded three-pinAC outlet.

Caution: The polarized3-pinplug only fits in3-pinoutlets. If the AC outlet does not have holes for all three pins, have an electrician install a properly grounded outlet for you.

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 cord into the jack on the left side of the fax machine. Then plug the cord’s other end into the telephone you want to use as an extension or into an answering machine.

CONNECTING THE

HANDSET

Plug the handset’s modular plug into the HANDSET jack on the left side of the fax machine. Place the handset in its cradle.

Store unused thermal paper away from high temperatures (158°F or over) and high humidity. These can darken the paper.

Store copies away from direct sunlight and at a temperature below 94°F. Direct sunlight and high heat can fade the image.

Avoid storing thermal copies next to blueprint (diazo) copies and plastic film or binders. The chemicals in these materials could fade the image.
