TAD — This is the only setting in which you can use an answering machine.
Your telephone answering device is connected to your fax machine, and answers
every call. Once the TAD answers, the fax machine listens for fax tones. If it
detects fax tones, it prints the fax.
The TAD setting works only with an external telephone answering device (TAD); it
does not work with telephone company voice mail. Ring Delay and F/T Ring
Time do not work in this setting.
When you use this feature, you don't have to press
call and hear calling beeps. Just hold the handset and wait a few seconds. When
you see "RECEIVE" on the fax screen or when you hear "chirps" through the
handset of an extension phone connected to another wall jack, just replace the
handset, and the fax machine does the rest. Selecting ON allows the machine to
receive fax calls automatically, even if you lift the handset of an external or
extension phone. Selecting SEMI lets the fax machine receive the call only if
you've answered it at the fax machine. Selecting OFF means you'll have to
activate the fax machine yourself, by pressing
you are not at the fax machine.
In case Easy Receive does not work, because of a poor phone line connection, just
or press the Activation Code
to select ON, SEMI, or OFF.
