DOC Information
If a Problem Arises
If any of your telephone equipment is not
operating properly, you should immediately
remove it from your telephone line, as it
may cause harm to the telephone network.
If the telephone company notes a problem,
it may temporarily discontinue service. When
practical, the telephone company will notify

certified connector assembly (telephone
extension cord). The customer should be
aware that compliance with the above
conditions may not prevent degradation of
service in some situations.
Repairs to certified equipment should be
Canadian
authorized
made by an
maintenance facility designated by the
supplier. Any repairs or alterations made by
the user to this equipment, or equipment
malfunctions, may give the telecommunications company cause to request the user to
disconnect the equipment.
Users should ensure for their own
protection that the electrical ground
connections of the power utility, telephone
lines and internal metallic water pipe
system, if present, are connected together.
This precaution may be particularly
important in rural areas.
Caution
Users should not attempt to make such
connections themselves, but should contact
the appropriate electric inspection authority,
or electrician, as appropriate.

Receiving
This section shows how to receive
faxes and control the functions
that affect the way you receive
faxes.
Manual vs. Automatic Fax
Machines
Facsimile machines come in two basic
types:
l
l
Manual fax machines require the
sender to dial the number, listen for a
fax “tone” from the receiving machine
(or tell the receiving operator to press
the START key on their machine), and
then press [START/COPY] to send.
Automatic fax machines detect the
presence of the receiving machine
after it answers, and automatically
send a document with no operator
intervention.
With the handset in the cradle using
memory dialing, your unit sends a
document as an automatic fax machine.
With the handset up, it sends a document
as a manual fax machine. Your facsimile
machine can receive documents from
either type of machine.
Choosing a Mode
Receiving in TEL Mode
Before you begin to receive faxes, select
the proper reception mode for the way
you intend to use the machine. The
currently-set mode is displayed in the
LCD window beneath the date and time.
1. To select the TEL (Manual) mode,
press [RECEIVE MODE] repeatedly
until the indicator is off and the
window displays as shown below.
In TEL MODE, you can use your fax
machine as you would use any regular
telephone. Use this mode if you typically
use the unit to receive both voice calls
and faxes.
In AUTO-RCV
MODE, your unit
automatically picks up to receive a fax
after several rings. The number of rings
can be set through the User Options (see
page 36). Use this mode if you typically
leave your fax machine unattended.
2. When the phone rings, pick up the
handset.
3. When you hear a fax tone, press
[START/COPY].
When the other party is calling from
a manual fax machine, instruct him
to press the START key on their
machine. When you hear a fax tone,
press your [START/COPY] a n d
hang up. The unit will receive the
fax.
l
In ANS/FAX MODE, the unit can share
the same telephone line with an
answering machine.
l
Your unit is preset to the TEL MODE
when it comes out.
Once you choose a receiving mode, the
mode will not be changed even though
you turn the unit off. The unit restores
the mode when you turn on its power.
l
l
If, when you answer the phone, you
hear a fax tone, someone is trying to
send you a fax from an automatic
fax machine. Press [START/COPY]
and hang up to receive the fax.
Receiving
Receiving in AUTO-RCV
Mode
1. To select the AUTO-RCV mode, press
[RECEIVE MODE] repeatedly until the
indicator on the key lights and the
window displays as shown below.
2.
When you get a call, the unit
automatically receives the document.
l
When a call is received from a
m a n u a l f a x m a c h i n e , your unit
answers the call after several rings
which you can set through the User
Options, and sounds a fax tone to
the caller. The caller hears the tone,
and should know to press the
START key on their machine. Then
your unit receives the fax.
l
When a call is received from an
automatic fax machine, y o u r u n i t
automatically detects the sending fax
machine and receives the fax
automatically.
l If you pick up the handset before your
unit answers, the unit switches back to
TEL mode.
l Even when a fax tone is on the line, the
unit might fail to detect it and doesn’t
receive the fax because of the line
instability.
continued
Receiving in ANS/FAX Mode
l To use ANS/FAX receiving mode, you
have to install an answering machine
(see page 10). This mode is not
applicable for the standard phone
Installed in EXT.TEL jack.
1. To select the ANS/FAX mode, press

This is like the return address on a letter.
You can tell at a glance who is sending
the document. The example below shows
a typical document with the ID printed out
at the top.
The amount of Information that appears In
the ID depends on the type and settings
of the facsimile unit that is sending the
document.
Important Receiving Facts
Clearing Paper Jams
If the fax paper jams, DO NOT pull it out.
Doing so could damage your fax unit. To
properly clear a fax paper jam, open the
paper cover by pulling the release button
towards the front of the unit. Then,
remove the jammed paper.
continued
Fax Paper Storage
Fax paper has chemicals in it that can, over time, cause yellowing, fading, and curling.
Following these storage guidelines should keep your received faxes and your unused fax
paper serviceable as long as possible.
l
To extend its shelf-life, store unopened
packages of thermal paper at or below
76°F and 65% humidity. If the
package has been opened, store it
away from direct light. Heat and
humidity darken the background of
thermal paper.
l
l
Avoid storing faxes in contact with
blueprint (diazo) copies and plastic film
or binders. The chemicals in these
materials may fade the image.
l Avoid applying tape to the imaged area
on faxes. The chemicals in some
transparent tape adhesives may fade
the image
l
Avoid storing faxes with the imaged
side together. The printed image may
transfer from one copy to the other.
For indefinite storage, copy your
received faxes using a standard
office copy machine, and store
the copy instead of the original
fax. Documents on plain copy
paper are less prone to the
decay that sometimes affects
faxes.
Reload the fax paper as described in
“Loading Fax Paper.”
Store your received faxes away from
direct sunlight and at a temperature
below 105ºF. Heat and humidity
darken the background and fade the
image.

Maintenance and Troubleshooting
Cleaning Components
When the copied documents are hard to
read, clean the machine’s scanning glass
and white roller. If they are dirty, the
quality of the transmission image and
copy becomes degraded.
If you have document jams in automatic
feeding, it is recommended to clean the
ADF rubber surface as follows.
2. Disassemble the white roller as
follows.
Both ends of the roller are terminated
with bushings which are snapped shut
with small tabs. Push the tabs slightly
inwards in the direction of ‘A’, then
rotate it in the direction of ‘B’ until it
reaches the slot as shown in the figure
below. Then pull the roller upwards in
the direction of ‘C’.
continued
3. Wipe the roller clean with a soft cloth
dampened with alcohol. Then, dry
thoroughly.
1. Lift the control panel using hand.
Be careful not to lose the bushing on one
end of the roller when disassembling.
Do not use the document having contents
written by pencil on the back side. It
cause the white roller to be stain. When
the roller becomes dirty, the copied
document will not reproduced clear.
Maintenance and Troubleshooting
4. Clean the scanning glass with alcohol
as shown below.
5. If a ‘DOCUMENT JAM’ occurs, dampen the
lint-free cloth with water, and wipe the ADF
rubber and ADF roller clean as shown
below.
If you still have problems in feeding
documents automatically after cleaning the
rubber and the roller, you may have to
replace them. Contact your dealer.
continued
6. Assemble the roller in reverse order of
disassembling. Then close the cover.
Maintenance and Troubleshooting
How a Fax Works
About Facsimile Compatibility
Facsimile is a system of sending printed
or other graphic information from one
location to another by producing a copy
or “facsimile” of that information at the
remote location. A fax unit transmits audio
tones over the same telephone lines you
use for person-to-person conversation.
The CCITT (Consultative Committee for
International Telephone and Telegraph),
which sets worldwide standards for data
facsimile
communication,
classifies
devices into three groups. The grouping
is based on how a fax unit sends
information, in what form, and at which
speed.
The facsimile process involves three basic
steps :
1. Reading and converting the document
into electronic signals (audio tones).
2. Sending, or transmitting, the signals
through a telephone system to another
fax unit.
3. Converting the received signals into a
transmitted
the
“facsimile” of
document.
This is a simplified explanation of the
actual facsimile process. Although all fax
units operate by this same basic process,
specific operating procedures differ from
unit to unit.
To simplify, you can think of fax units as
being grouped by speed: Group 1
includes 6-minute units, Group 2 includes
3-minute units, and Group 3 includes
sub-minute units. These speeds refer to
the amount of time it takes a fax unit to
send or receive a standard business letter
over the telephone lines.
Your FX505 is compatible with CClTT G3
mode units.
