Turning Off the Main Power / In the Event of
Power Failure
This section describes the machine status when the power is turned off or if the
power fails.
R CAUTION:
• When you disconnect the power plug from the wall outlet, always pull the
plug (not the cable).
3
Important
❒ Do not turn off the main power switch while the power indicator is lit or
blinking. If you do, the memory may be damaged and failure could result.
❒ Turn off the main power switch before pulling out the plug. If you pull out
the plug with the switch on, the memory may be damaged and failure could
result.
❒ Make sure that 100% is shown on the display before you unplug the machine.
If a lower value is shown, some data is currently present in memory.
❒ Right after a power failure, the internal battery needs to be sufficiently recharged to guard against future data loss. Keep the machine plugged in and
the main power switch on for about 5 days after the power loss.
Even if the main power switch is turned off, the contents of the machine memory
(for example, programmed numbers) will not be lost. However, if power is lost
for about 12 hours because the main power switch is turned off, there is a power
cut, or the power cord is removed, contents of the Fax memory are lost. Lost
items will include any fax documents stored in memory using Memory Transmission/Reception, Memory Lock, or Substitute Reception.
If a file was deleted from memory, a Power Failure Report is automatically printed as soon as the power is restored.
This report can be used to identify lost files. If a document stored for Memory
Transmission was lost, resend it. If a document received by Memory Reception
or Substitute Reception was lost, ask the sender to resend it.

Error Mail Notification
The machine sends the Error Mail Notification to the sender when it is unable to

sent to the administrator's e-mail address when one is specified.
3
Note
❒ You can select to send Error Mail Notification with User Parameters. See “Parameter Setting”, General Settings Guide.
❒ If Error Mail Notification cannot be sent, the Error Report (E-Mail) is printed
by the machine.
❒ If an error occurs when e-mail is received via SMTP, the SMTP server sends
error e-mail to the originator of the document.
Error Report (E-Mail)
The Error Report (E-Mail) is printed by the machine when it is unable to send an
Error Mail Notification.
Server-Generated Error E-mail
The transmitting server sends this error e-mail to the originator of e-mail that
cannot be transmitted successfully (due to reasons such as specifying an incorrect e-mail address).
Note
❒ After server-generated error e-mail is printed, the first page of the sent document is printed.
