Operations Required to Use Fax Functions

Checking the modular cable connection

Check that a modular cable is connected between the LINE port and the appropriate telephone line. Use LINE port 1 if only one line is operating.

  • The illustration shows a unit with optional Fax Kit FK-514, FAX Kit FK-515, and Fax Mount Kit MK-742 installed. FAX3 (LINE port 3) and FAX4 (LINE port 4) can be used on North America models because these models support FAX Kit FK-515 and Fax Mount Kit MK-742.

  • If multiple lines are used, modular cables are required according to the number of lines to be used.

  • Use the TEL port for connecting a telephone cord. Even if multiple lines are used, connect a telephone cord to TEL port 1. A telephone cord cannot be connected to the TEL port on the additional line side.

Specifying the type of telephone line

Specify the type (dialing method) of telephone line to which this machine is to be connected. The dialing method must be correctly specified to ensure communications.
