5. Answering Machine Connection Connecting an Answering Machine If desired, you can connect an answering machine to your fax machine's TEL. SET socket. This will allow you to receive both voice messages and faxes when you are out. ♦ Important: If the answering machine is not connected to the TEL. SET socket on the fax as shown, the setup will not operate properly.
Using the Answering Machine Connection Important: In New Zealand, not all standard telephones and answering machines will respond to incoming ringing when connected to the extension socket of the equipment. Changing the outgoing message The outgoing message (OGM) of your answering machine should be changed to inform callers who want to send a fax to press their Start key.
Optional A.M. Mode Settings How answering machine mode operates While you are out, all of your incoming calls will be answered by your answering machine and its outgoing message will play. Voice callers can leave a message. During this time, your fax will quietly monitor the line. If your fax detects a fax tone or a duration of silence greater than four seconds, it will take over the line and begin reception.
Optional A.M. Mode Settings Time selections for the period of silence are 1 to 10 seconds. Quiet Detect Time has been set to 4 seconds at the factory. This gives the best performance with most answering machines; however, you may need to adjust this setting depending on the disconnect time of your answering machine.
Optional A.M. Mode Settings Quiet Detect Start Time This setting can be used to delay the start of the Quiet Detect Time function. For example, if you want to insert a pause at the beginning of your answering machine’s outgoing message to ensure clear detection of fax signals, you can use this setting to delay the start of silence detection so that the pause will not cause the fax to take over the line.
Optional A.M. Mode Settings On A.M. Failure When this function is turned on, your fax will answer the call after 4 rings if the answering machine for some reason fails to answer before that time. This ensures that you will receive fax messages even if the answering machine’s tape fills up or the answering machine is not turned on.
