PriorityFax 1000 M anual
WARNING
Lift the fax machine by its body, never by the telephone
handset or cradle.
Choosing a Place for
the Fax Machine
When you select a location for your fax machine, keep the
following in mind:
Place the fax machine on a flat, stable surface.
Select a vibration-free area.
Locate the unit near a telephone wall jack and a standard
grounded outlet.
WARNING
a
a
a
a
Assembling the Fax
Machine
Avoid locations that are subject to direct sunlight,
excessive heat, moisture, or dust.
Avoid using electrical outlets controlled by wall
switches or automatic timers. Disruption of power can
wipe out information in the unit’s memory.
Avoid using outlets on the same circuit with large
motors or other appliances that might disturb the
power supply.
Keep the unit away from potential sources of
interference, such as loudspeakers or the base units of
cordless telephones.
To assemble the fax machine, you need only do the following:
Connect the handset
Plug in the line cord
Install the output tray and paper rest
Setting Up th e PtiotityFax
Connecting the Handset
The first step in assembling the fax machine is attaching the
handset to the unit.
Locate the insert opening on the front end of the telephone cradle
and plug in one end of the curled handset cord. Push firmly to be
sure it is locked.
Connect the other end of the curled handset cord to the end of the
handset, as shown below. Be sure that the inserted plug clicks
securely in place.
Connecting the Fax
Machine to the
Telephone Line
Installing a single-line
telephone connection
There are two types of connections for installing your fax machine:
single-line and multi-line.
A single-line connection is the preferred solution for installing the
fax machine. To hook up to a single-line connection, perform the
following steps:
Plug one end of the telephone line cord (the flat cord) into the back
of the fax machine, as shown below.
Plug the other end into your modular telephone wall jack (USOC
RJ11C). Make sure both ends of the cord click securely into place.
Note
If you have the older 4-prong telephone wall jack, you
must use a modular 4-prong adapter USOC RJAIX). Plug
the adapter into the wail jack, and then plug the telephone
cord into the adapter, as shown in the illustration below.

Settin g Up th e PriorityFax
Installing a multi-line
telephone connection
Most offices have key systems or PBXs. Although in many
cases it is relatively easy to connect the fax machine to a key
system or a PBX, we suggest that you contact the company
that installed your organization’s telephone system and ask
them to connect the fax machine for you.
It is preferable to have a separate line for the fax machine.
This way, you can leave the unit in Automatic Answer mode
24 hours a day and derive full benefit from the fax machine’s
unattended operations capabilities.
If the fax machine is connected to a multi-line system, ask
your installer to connect the fax machine to the last line on
the system. This prevents the fax machine from being
activated each time a telephone call comes into your office.
Installing the Output
Tray and Paper Rest
Installing the output tray
There are two types of paper holders for the PriorityFax: the
output tray for holding documents sent to you, and the
paper rest for holding documents you have just sent to
others.
The larger of the two paper holders, the output tray, receives
incoming and copied documents. You can position the
output tray at a 90° angle to the fax machine at the front edge
of the table you are using, so that incoming or copied
documents fall directly into the output tray.
Note:
Using the output tray is optional. If you install only
the output tray base, you can collect incoming or
copied documents on the table or other surface you
‘are using for the fax machine.
To install the output tray base and the output tray, follow
these steps:
Place the output tray base on the table in front of you, with
the tabs on the output tray base pointing away from you.
Then insert the wire output tray paper guide into the holes
on either side of the output tray base so that the bend in the
wire paper guide points toward you, as shown in the
following illustration.
1-5
PriorityFax 1000 Manual
Place the fax machine at the edge of the table and locate the two
notches on the front underside of the fax machine.
Holding the output tray base level, press the tabs extending from
the output tray base into the notches on the front of the fax
machine, as shown in the following illustration.
1-6
Setting Up th e PriorityFax
Place the output tray in front of you and insert each of the
two wire paper holders into the holes at the edge of the
output tray, as shown below.
To attach the output tray to the output tray base, locate the
holes on either side of the output tray base. Then insert the
pegs on either side of the output tray into these holes, as
shown below.

Note
This tray can used in a horizontal position instead of
the vertical position shown on the next page. If you plan to
use the tray in the horizontal position, insert the pegs into
the rear slots instead of the front holes. Then push the
output tray as far back as it will go.

PriorityFax 1000 M anual
When the output tray is installed, it hangs over the edge of the fax
machine operating surface to catch your incoming or copied
documents, as shown below.
lnstalling the paper
rest
The smaller of the paper holders, the paper rest, is used to hold
documents that you have just faxed to others. To install the paper
rest, follow these steps:
Locate the grooves at the back of the fax machine, right below the
back control panel.
1-8
Settin g Up th e PriorityFax
Holding the paper rest at about a 45 degree angle to the fax
machine, press the tabs extending from one end of the rest into the
grooves, as shown in the following illustration. If you wish, you
can also install the paper rest wire as-shown below. Do not use the
paper rest wire with legal-sized documents.
Make sure that the rest fits evenly and securely.
Plugging in the
Fax Machine
The fax machine can be plugged into any standard power outlet.
Make sure that the outlet is grounded and that it is not on the same
line as large appliances or office machines that tend to draw a lot
of power in a very short period of time, such as refrigerators and
copiers. The fax machine power requirements can be found in
Technical Specifications, Chapter 6.
Plug the power cord into a properly grounded electrical outlet.
You do not need to turn the fax machine on or off.
Now you should insert the recording paper roll.
PriorityFax 1000 M anual
Inserting the
Recording Paper
Roll
Follow these steps to insert the recording paper roll.
WARNING
The recording paper is heat-sensitive. Avoid exposure to
high temperature, high humidity, direct sunlight, alcohol,
or blueprints. Otherwise, documents may become
discolored.
Press the paper cover button, which is located at the right edge of
the top of the machine. This opens the cover.
Unwrap the paper roll. Hold the roll so that the free end of the
paper points toward you from the top of the roll, as shown.

Note
Be sure not to insert the paper roll upside down. If the
paper roll is inserted upside down, the fax machine cannot
produce an image.
Place the paper into the machine. Then pull approximately five
inches (15 cm) of paper from the top of the roll and insert the end
of the paper under the paper cutter guide, as shown in the
illustration below. (Paper loading instructions are also printed
inside the fax machine.)

2 Using the PriorityFax
This chapter covers the control panels, sending and receiving
documents, and one-touch and speed dial faxing.
The Control Panels
The buttons, message lights, and switches on the top and back
control panels let you control many of the fax machine’s settings.
The keypad and buttons on the telephone handset also control
some fax functions discussed later in this chapter.
The Top Control Panel
PINE
The PriorityFax uses three resolutions for sending faxes: standard,
fine, and photo. The FINE and PHOTO lights indicate which mode
is on, and each press of the button changes the resolution. If
neither light is on, the resolution is standard.
Note
The fine and photo modes give more detail, but they are
slower than the standard mode; therefore, use the photo
mode only for photographs and the fine mode only when
necessary.

Now you should see the batteries in their compartment as shown
in the illustration below. Make sure that the flat side of each
battery faces to the right, as shown.
Replace the label.
Replacing the Batteries
Once a year you should replace the memory batteries. Remove the
old batteries and replace them with new ones, making sure that
the new ones are in the position shown in the illustration above.
Use Maxell SR41 W or the equivalent.
Note
To avoid losing information in the memory, make sure
that the line cord is connected to the fax machine and that
the telephone line and handset curled cords are connected
before you replace the batteries and that you do not touch
the hook switch on the telephone cradle while you are
changing the batteries.
Sending a Document
Sending a document is a simple process. Instructions later in this
chapter tell you how to make it even more simple by using onetouch and speed dial faxing.

fax machine sends the bottom page first, the pages are sent in the
correct order.
START/COPY
Dial the fax number and press START when you hear the fax tone.
As the pages are fed into the fax machine, notice when there is
only one page left. Then place the next four pages face down on
top of the page that is still in the feeder and push them gently in as
far as they will go.
