    CONVENIENT DIALLING METHODS (AUTO-DIALLING) The fax function includes a convenient auto dial feature (Rapid dialling, speed dialling and group dialling). By programming frequently dialled numbers, you can call and send faxes to these locations by means of a simple dialling operation (page 20). There are three types of auto-dialling: Rapid dialling, speed dialling, and group dialling. To program auto-dial numbers, see page 62.
  • Page 19: Receiving Faxes

  • Page 50: Transmission Using F-codes

    This machine supports the "F-code" standard as established by the ITU-T*. Operations such as relay broadcast transmission and confidential transmission previously could only be performed with another Sharp fax machine; however, F-Code communication makes it possible to perform these operations with fax machines of other manufacturers that support F-Code communication.
  • Page 51: G Creating A Box For F-code

    TRANSMISSION USING F-CODES When communication occurs involving a box, the communication will only take place if the sub-address and passcode that the other machine sends match the sub-address and passcode programmed in your machine for that box. Therefore, to allow communication, you must inform the other party of the sub-address and passcode of the box.
  • Page 52: F-code Polling Memory

    F-CODE POLLING MEMORY F-code polling memory allows one fax machine to call another fax machine and initiate reception of a document that has been scanned into the other machine's F-code polling memory box. Calling another machine and initiating reception is called F-code polling, and scanning a document into a memory box for another machine to retrieve by polling is called F-code polling memory.
  • Page 53: G Using F-code Polling Memory

    TRANSMISSION USING F-CODES USING F-CODE POLLING MEMORY In order for another machine to retrieve a document from your machine, you must first scan the document into the F-code polling memory box. You can check the document in the memory polling box by printing it out. (See "Checking and clearing document data in a box"...
  • Page 54 TRANSMISSION USING F-CODES Checking and clearing document data in a box The procedures for checking document data in an F-code polling memory box by printing the data and for clearing the data are generally the same as in "Printing documents in the Public Box" (page 40) and "Deleting documents from the Public Box"...
  • Page 55: G Procedure For F-code Polling

    TRANSMISSION USING F-CODES PROCEDURE FOR F-CODE POLLING Make sure that a document has not been placed in the document feeder tray or on the document glass, and then follow the steps below. • You must know the sub-address (SEP) and passcode (PWD) of the other machine's F-code polling memory Note box.

  • Page 57: F-code Confidential Transmission

    As the above diagram shows, receiving faxes to the machine's F-code confidential memory box is called F-code confidential reception, and sending faxes to another machine's F-code confidential memory box is called F-code confidential transmission. • This machine does not support Sharp's previous confidential transmission function, which uses the Note programmed sender's fax number and ID code.

  • Page 60: F-code Relay Broadcast Transmission

    Transmission by the relay machine is called "F-code relay broadcast transmission", and transmission from the relay request machine to the relay machine is called "relay request transmission". • This machine does not support Sharp's previous relay broadcast function, which uses the programmed Note sender's number and relay ID code.
  • Page 61: G Using The F-code Relay Broadcast Function (your Machine Is The Relay Machine)

    TRANSMISSION USING F-CODES USING THE F-CODE RELAY BROADCAST FUNCTION (your machine is the relay machine) When a document is received from a relay request machine, the F-code relay broadcast function transmits the document to the end receiving machines using a memory box only if the sub-address and passcode sent by the relay request machine are correct.

  • Page 63: Setting The Reception Mode

    CONVENIENT METHODS OF USE SETTING THE RECEPTION MODE The machine normally receives faxes automatically after ringing; however, when an extension phone is connected, you can set the reception mode to MANUAL. This will allow you to talk to the other party first and then receive a fax. This is convenient when you only have one telephone line and receive more voice calls than faxes.
