Replacing the thermal paper
When the paper runs out, OUT OF PAPER will appear in the display.
Reception and copying will no longer be possible. To replace the
paper, first take out the old roll, then load the new roll as described
above.
To assure a long life for your fax and obtain the best reproduction
quality, we recommend that you use the following Sharp thermal
paper, which is available from your dealer or retailer:
FO-20PRw THERMAL PAPER (30 m roll)
The use of any other paper may result in poor copy quality and
excessive build-up of residue on the head.
Handling thermal paper
Do not unpack the paper until you are ready to use it. It may become
discoloured if:
♦ It is stored at high humidity or high temperature.
♦ It is exposed to direct sunlight.
♦ It comes in contact with glue, thinner, or a freshly copied blueprint.
♦ A rubber eraser or adhesive tape is used on it, or it is scratched.

Setting the Reception Mode
Setting the Reception Mode
Your fax machine has four modes for receiving incoming calls and
faxes:
TEL mode:
Select this mode when you want to receive both phone calls and faxes
on the fax machine. All calls, including faxes, must be answered by
picking up the fax machine’s handset.
FAX mode:
Select this mode when you only want to receive faxes. The fax
machine will automatically answer all calls and receive incoming
faxes.
TEL/FAX mode:
This mode is convenient for receiving both faxes and voice calls.
When a call comes in, the fax will detect whether it is a voice call
(including manually dialled fax transmissions), or an automatically
dialled fax. If it is a voice call, the fax will make a special ringing
sound to alert you to answer. If it is an automatically dialled fax
transmission, reception will begin automatically.
A.M. mode:
Use this mode only if you have connected an answering machine to
the fax (see Chapter 6). Select this mode when you go out to receive
voice messages in your answering machine and faxes on your fax
machine.

When the reception mode is set to TEL/FAX, your fax machine
automatically answers all calls on two rings. After answering, your fax
monitors the line for about five seconds to see if a fax tone is being
sent.
♦ If your fax machine detects a fax tone (this means that the call is an
automatically dialled fax), it will automatically begin reception of
the incoming document.
♦ If your fax machine doesn’t detect a fax tone (this means that the
call is a voice call or manually dialled fax), it will make a ringing
sound (called pseudo ringing) for 30 seconds to alert you to answer.
If you don’t answer within this time, your fax will send a fax tone to
the other machine to allow the calling party to send a fax manually
if they desire.
Note: Only the fax will alert you to voice calls or manually dialled faxes
by pseudo ringing. An extension phone connected to the same line will
not ring after the connection has been made.

answering machine may be connected to any extension of the same
line.
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. For example, your message might go as follows:
"Hello. You've reached the ABC company. No one is available to take
your call right now. Please leave a message after the beep or press
your facsimile Start key to send a fax. Thank you for calling."
♦ Try to keep the length of the message under 10 seconds. If it is too
long, you may have difficulty receiving faxes sent by automatic
dialing.
♦ If your outgoing message must be longer than 10 seconds, leave a
pause of about four seconds at the beginning of the message. This
will give your fax a chance to detect fax tones sent when automatic
dialing is used.

♦ If your answering machine has a toll saver function, make sure that
it will answer by the fourth ring.
Note: If your answering machine has a remote retrieval function, make
sure the code used to activate remote retrieval is different from the code
used to activate fax reception with an extension telephone (see Chapter
3, Receiving Documents). If they are the same, entering the code from an
outside telephone to retrieve messages will cause the fax machine to be
activated.

Optional A.M. Mode Settings
If necessary, you can use the following settings to improve the
response of the answering machine connection to incoming calls.
Quiet Detect Time
This function causes the fax machine to take over the line and begin
reception if a certain duration of silence is detected after the
answering machine answers.
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.
Some answering machines may have unusually fast disconnect times
(equal to or very slightly less than 4 seconds), which means that the
answering machine may disconnect the line before fax reception can
begin. In this case, try a Quiet Detect Time setting of about 3 seconds.
If the fax machine is interrupting callers before they can leave a
message, try a longer Quiet Detect Time setting. If your outgoing
message includes a period of silence, make sure that the setting is
longer than that period of silence, or re-record your outgoing message
to shorten the silence.
Note: Quiet Detect Time can be turned off by entering "00" for the time.
Note, however, that the fax machine will not be able to receive faxes sent
manually by Normal Dialling.

this is done, your fax machine will signal voice calls by the normal
ring pattern, and fax transmissions by a special ring pattern. In the
case of a fax transmission, your fax machine will automatically
answer the call and receive the fax.
The distinctive ring function is used with the reception mode set to
FAX. When your fax number is dialled, your fax machine will signal
the call with a special ringing sound, then answer automatically and
begin reception after the Number of Rings setting (the factory setting
is 2 rings). When your voice number is dialled, the fax machine will
signal the call with the normal ringing sound to let you know that you
must answer personally.
The factory setting is NO. If set to YES, both Australian (Fax Duet)
and New Zealand (FaxAbility) Distinctive Ring are supported.
Important:
♦ The distinctive ring function can only be used if you subscribe to a
distinctive ring service from your telephone company. Do not turn
on distinctive ring if you are on a normal line, as the fax machine
will not operate properly.
♦ If you turn on distinctive ring, the fax will not operate in TEL/FAX
reception mode.

operator assistance. In other words, the receiving fax machine, not the
transmitting fax machine, initiates the transmission.
To use the polling function, you must first set Rapid Key E/POLL for
use as a polling key.
♦ When Rapid Key E/POLL is set as a polling key, it cannot be used
