Do not connect a TAD elsewhere on the same phone line — your
fax machine and TAD will both try to control the line.
You may connect an external TAD to a separate wall jack only if you subscribe to
your telephone company's Distinctive Ring Service, have registered the distinctive
ring pattern on your fax machine, use that number as a fax number and set your
machine's Answer mode to MANUAL.
The external TAD must be plugged into the left side of the fax machine, into the
jack labeled EXT. Your fax machine cannot work properly if you plug the TAD into
a wall jack.
Plug the telephone line cord from the wall jack into the left side of the fax
machine, in the jack labeled LINE.
Plug the telephone line cord from your TAD into the left side of the fax
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 the Answer Mode to TAD.
Set your external TAD to 4 rings or less. (The fax machine's Ring Delay
setting does not apply).
Set the TAD to answer calls.
Record the outgoing message (see below).
