Welcome …
As an ENERGY STAR® partner, Muratec America, Inc.,

the ENERGY STAR guidelines for energy efficiency.

Welcome to your Muratec fax machine!
We’ve divided these operating instructions into three sections.
• “Getting started” (see page 1.1) covers only what you absolutely
have to know to use your machine immediately.
• “Beyond the basics” (see page 2.1) provides more details. When
you have time, look through it to learn more about your machine’s
many features, as well as fax in general.
Find your serial number and write it down
Before you go any further, please note that
your machine’s serial number is located on the
bar code label as shown on the drawing at
right. Please write this number in the box at
the bottom of the page before you set up your
IC and ID Labels
machine.
Bar cord label
• Finally, “Just in case … ” (see page 3.1) will help you decide what
to do if you ever have a problem with your machine. It also tells
you how to give it the kind of easy, sensible care that should help
keep troubles to a minimum.
The next two pages show the entire contents of these instructions.
Skim through them now if you’d like (they’ll prove more helpful as
time passes), or just go on past them to “Getting started” and, well,
get started!
And thanks for choosing Muratec.
Close up, the bar code label looks something
like this:
D1234567890123 *8CA
Important: This is not the exact number which appears on your machine’s label.
This only shows you how your label will look.
Please copy down your machine’s serial number below for future reference, and note
the machine’s model number.
My machine’s model number: F-65

What’s a fax document?
Simply put, a fax document is anything a fax user wants to fax to someone else.
It can be just one page or as many pages as you need. It can be text, a drawing or
even a photograph.
What’s a fax number?
EasyStart . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 1.12
Because your fax operates on standard phone lines, a fax number is just a regular
phone number. And, because your fax is also a high-quality, full-featured telephone,
your fax number can even be your regular phone number.

Just as cars are measured by engine size, fax machines are measured by resolution
and grayscale.
Resolution refers to the sharpness of a fax transmission. It’s expressed in lines per
inch (lpi). There are three specific levels of resolution:
• Normal (203 horizontal × 98 vertical lpi)
• Fine (203 × 196 lpi)
• Superfine (203 × 392 lpi).
Grayscale levels — refers to the many shades of gray your fax machine sees on a
document it’s sending. It’s likely most of your fax documents will be dark text on
white paper. However, when you want to send photographs and other shaded items,
you can set your fax machine to transmit in 64-scale grayscale.
So why not set your fax machine to use superfine or grayscale for
all transmissions?
Setting your fax machine for superfine resolution and grayscale mode makes your
machine send more information, making transmissions last longer and driving up
your phone bills on long-distance calls. You’ll find that we’ve made it easy for you to
set your fax machine for the most efficient and truest transmission for the types of
documents you send!

Getting started
Setting up
Pick an installation spot first
Where should you install your fax machine? The location should be:
• Clean — Dust buildup can damage your machine.
• In the open — Allow at least 12 inches of clearance around your machine.
Never cover the machine. Its vents must be able to “breathe.”
• Away from direct sunlight — This helps avoid overheating.
• Dry — Avoid any location where splatters or sprays of liquid could reach your
fax machine.
• Level, and vibration-free.
• Near a phone jack — Your fax machine uses a standard telephone jack, also
known as an RJ-11.
• Near an AC power outlet — Allow plenty of slack for your fax machine’s power
cord. It should never be stretch to its 5-foot limit.
Note: To turn off the power to your fax machine,you have to unplug the power
cord from the wall socket or remove the power cord from the rear of the
machine. For convenience, install the fax machine so that there is easy
access to the power outlet.
Voltage requirements:
Power consumption:
•
•
•
•
1.6
Use a standard three-pronged 120 VAC outlet.
Make sure the outlet isn’t controlled by a wall
switch. If it is, you will risk inadvertent shutoffs of your
machine, causing you to lose fax messages.
Don’t use an outlet which also is supplying power
to a large appliance, such a refrigerator or air conditioner. Such high-consumption appliances can cause
(temporary drops in the power available for other equipment which could damage your fax machine.
Use an electrical surge suppressor, which guards
both telephone and electrical lines. This device helps to
shield your fax machine from damaging high-voltage
electrical surges.

other device receives phone signals through your fax machine.
To attach a second phone or answering machine:
1
If your second phone or answering machine is already plugged into a phone
jack in the wall, disconnect it from that jack. Hold onto the phone plug; you
will need it in step 2.
2
Remove the modular cap on your fax machine. Then plug the line you disconnected from the wall jack in step 1 into the EXT. TEL jack on the left side of
your fax machine.
Operating Tips
Before using your fax machine, make sure you understand its basic operation.
To press: 0 (zero), 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, # or *
Use:
The numeric keypad.

Some guidelines
How big — and small — your pages can be
You can fax a piece of paper as small as a notepad sheet or nearly 3 feet long!
To be precise, the acceptable dimensions (width × length) are:
SINGLE-SHEET TRANSMISSION
MULTIPLE-SHEET TRANSMISSION
Things not to put in your fax
To avoid paper jams and damage to your machine, do not insert:
• Folded, curled, torn, wrinkled or very thin pages
• Documents with staples, glue, tape, paper clips or still-wet correction fluid
• “Sticky notes” (or documents with “sticky notes” attached)
• Cardboard, newspaper or fabric
• Pages with duplicating carbon on either side
• Credit cards or similar small, thick items
Some thoughts on resolution, grayscale and contrast
Reviewing resolution and grayscale
Document thickness: 0.06 to 0.13 mm
Note: The maximum width of the scanned area is 8.2 inches. This means there
will be a 0.16-inch margin on each side of the page that your fax machine
will not scan.
• Normal resolution is suitable for most typed documents and simple drawings.
• Fine resolution is ideal for maps, floorplans or handwritten documents.
• Superfine resolution reproduces the detail of extremely complicated drawings
or line art.
• Grayscale mode (“HALFTONE” on the control panel) captures shades in photos and
drawings.
Note: If you send a fax in superfine, there are some machines that receive it only
in fine mode. However, you can send a fax in grayscale mode to virtually
any fax machine currently in use.
ENTER
To change the resolution setting, press RESOLUTION repeatedly. As noted
above, if neither the FINE, S-FINE nor HALFTONE LED (light-emitting
diode) is glowing, your fax is set for normal resolution. Otherwise, a
glowing LED indicates the fax is using that setting. For example, in the
drawing (left), the machine is set for fine resolution.
1.15
Getting started
Contrast
Setting the contrast allows you to compensate for any excessive lightness or darkness in the documents you send or copy.
You have three choices:
• Normal — Suited to most documents.
• Light — Lightens up overly dark, “muddy” original documents.
• Dark — Darkens weak, “washed-out” images.

Time (05-10): 05
If the setting you see is acceptable, skip to step 4.
If not, go on to step 3.

Note: To avoid confusion, remember that the LIGHT contrast setting lightens and
DARK contrast setting darkens.
To change the resolution, press CONTRAST repeatedly. A glowing LED
(light-emitting diode) indicates the fax is using that setting. For example, in the drawing at left, the machine is set for dark contrast. If neither
the LIGHT nor DARK LED is glowing, your fax is set for normal contrast.
CANCEL
Press ENTER.
Use the numeric keypad to enter the length you want for the dialing pause.
You can choose between five and 10 seconds.
Here, we chose nine seconds.
Time (05-10): 09
Note: The length setting requires two digits. Always enter a leading zero for
lengths other than 10 seconds.

Press ENTER to save the setting.
Potential problems with call-waiting and voice mail
Entering a pause character when dialing
Some long-distance systems require dialing pauses, and pauses may also be
required when dialing through special telephone exchanges.
To insert a pause character, just press REDIAL/PAUSE after you have dialed at least
one other character. The pause character ( -/ )will appear on the display.
Each pause entered lasts for a factory-set five seconds, but can be changed to last
for as long as 10 seconds. (See “Changing the pause length,” to change this setting.)
For example, assuming the pause is at the factory setting, pressing 9,
REDIAL/PAUSE, 19725552009 dials 9 [5-second pause] 1 9 7 2 5 5 5 2 0 0 9.
Important: Each pause uses two of the characters you are allowed in a number.
Changing the pause length
The pause is set by the factory to last five seconds, but you can set it to last as long
as ten seconds if necessary. If you find the five-second pause satisfactory with your
phone system, do not make this change. But if want to change it:
1
Press PROGRAM, J, 0, 5.
Set DialingPause
1.16
Telephone call-waiting signals can stop fax transmission and reception. And any
service — such as voice mail — which may intercept your calls can keep your fax
machine from getting fax calls.
If you must use only one phone line for both your phone and fax, consult your telephone company for information on how you can temporarily disable call-waiting or
voice mail while using the fax machine.
Getting started
How to insert a document
1
Adjust the document guides by sliding them to the left or right to fit the document(s) you are faxing. Your fax machine’s automatic document feeder (ADF)
will hold up to 30 pages.
2
If you are sending a multi-page document,
“fan” the pages slightly. The first sheet
should extend just slightly from the others.
3
Insert the document face down. The fax
machine will “grab” the first page of the document and position it for faxing. If needed,
readjust the document guides for the best
fit.
Note: Although it’s probably best to transmit from memory, please note there are
some documents that use up memory more quickly than others. They include
documents with many pages and documents with a lot of dark areas, since
darker pages create more data for your fax machine to “remember” and
send. When the machine’s memory supply is full, it can transmit only
through the document feeder.
To make memory transmission the default:
1
Set Memory Tx
2
On
If the setting you see is acceptable, skip to step 4.
If not, go on to step 3.
100%
Note: If the fax is set for non-memory transmission, the amount of memory
available is not shown:
Press ENTER.

To change the setting, press or once or twice until the mode you want
appears. In this example, we chose Off.
Memory Tx :

4
Using memory transmission
Your fax machine has a great memory! Take advantage of it, and you could:
Save Time. By using your fax machine’s memory, you won’t have to wait for your
machine while it completes the transmission. Simply scan your document into your
fax machine’s memory, and you can walk away with your original in hand.
Save Money. Here’s a real money-saver on long-distance fax calls: if you’re transmitting to another memory-equipped Muratec fax machine, your machine will send
the document directly into the other machine’s memory and hang up! (The receiving
machine then prints out your message from its memory after the call has ended.)
This cuts your actual on-line time to a minimum.
Save Even More Money. Set up a delayed command (see pages 2.14–2.15) to send
your document to that other Muratec fax machine after hours, and you can save
more money, because the line charges will be cheaper.
You can set your fax to always transmit from memory as a default.
Press ENTER to save the setting.

Now, everything is up to the machines — yours and the one you are dialing.
• If you set the fax to transmit from memory, your machine will first scan
the document into memory, then dial the other fax. When it makes contact, your machine transmits the stored document from memory.
• If the fax is set for non-memory transmission, your machine simply dials
the other fax. When it makes contact, your machine feeds the document
through, scanning and transmitting it as it goes.
Sending a fax with a handset or on-hook dialing
(Manual sending)
You also can fax a document by dialing using either the handset or the monitor
speaker. This is called “on-hook” dialing.
Here’s how:

If not, press RESOLUTION to change the resolution and/or press CONTRAST to
change the contrast.
In either case, the LCD shows:
Note: The more “stuff”, or black coverage, your machine “sees” on a page,
the more slowly the page scans it.Even if the page is relatively clean,
sending it in grayscale mode or certain resolution settings makes your
machine “see” more “stuff”.
The same is true if you set the contrast to Dark.
Note: What if the call fails? See “If the call doesn’t go through: redialing,”

If the call doesn’t go through: redialing
Automatic redialing
If you dialed without using either the monitor speaker or the handset and the fax
call fails, your machine automatically redials the call.
While your machine is waiting to redial, the LCD shows:
Auto Redial
While in this Auto Redial mode, the machine can receive faxes and make as many as 30
fax transmissions.
Your fax will continue to redial the number every few minutes until one of these happens first:
• It reaches the remote fax machine.
• It has automatically redialed the number for the last try (again, see “Making
redial settings,” next column).
Notes: If the last try fails, your machine may print (and/or display) error messages.
For more information, see pages 3.4–3.7.
Note: If you used either the speaker or a handset, redial manually (see below).
To redial a voice call manually by using the handset:
1
Lift the handset to get a dial tone. Make sure there is not document in the
document feeder.
2
Press REDIAL/PAUSE. When the other person answers, speak to him/her on the
handset.

Canceling a document while sending it
To cancel a transmission in progress:
1
Press STOP.
• If you are using a non-memory transmission, press STOP two or three times
until the machine returns to standby mode. The document will finish feeding through the ADF.
• If you are using a memory transmission, the LCD shows a command number in progress (see “An introduction to Review Commands,” below).
For example, the LCD shows:
C01:5552009
2
Press CANCEL twice to cancel the transmission.
Note: If either broadcasting or sequential polling in progress, you cannot cancel it
by pressing STOP. To cancel a broadcasting or sequential polling in progress,
press REVIEW COMMAND first and then press CANCEL twice.
An introduction to Review Commands
To cancel either an in-progress transmission or an automatic redial from memory,
use the Review Commands function.
A short explanation:
• Because your fax machine can store multiple transmission commands in memory,
it keeps track of each command by assigning it a command number — such as
“C01.”
• Delayed commands, redial attempts and current fax transmissions are all stored
in your fax machine’s memory and given a command number.
The Review Commands function gives you the power not only to check on each command pending in your machine’s memory but also to delete a command if you decide
not to send the document.
1
Press REVIEW COMMANDS.
The LCD shows the first command, indicated by its command number and the

Receiving faxes
Different ways to get the job done
Tel Ready mode
Reception modes
Use it if:
Your fax machine has four different reception modes — Tel Ready, Fax Ready,
Tel/Fax Ready and Ans/Fax Ready — each of which we’ll explain in a moment.
We’ll also give you an idea of which one you should use, depending upon your setup.
Answering calls manually — for all reception modes
In any reception mode, you always can answer calls manually. Just pick your
machine’s handset.
• You intend to use the same line for both fax and phone calls
. . . and . . .
• You are using, on that line, at least one other phone which is not
connected to your fax machine.
In this mode: Your fax machine never answers calls automatically; you must
answer each call as described in “Answering calls manually — for
all reception modes” (left column).
To select Tel Ready:
Press RECEIVE repeatedly until the TEL light comes on.
If you hear someone speaking to you, go ahead and
have a normal phone call.
If you hear fax tones (“beep — beep — beep —
beep”), press START and hang up the handset.
Your fax machine will begin receiving a fax.
Note: Don’t try to answer a call by pressing
MONITOR/CALL. The monitor function is
only for on-hook dialing. Your fax
machine does not have a speakerphone.
Fax Ready mode
Use it if:
You have your fax machine installed on a “dedicated” line (one it
doesn’t share with a second phone).
In this mode: Your fax machine answers each incoming call after a certain number of rings (see page 2.4) and attempts fax reception.
To select Fax Ready:
Press RECEIVE repeatedly until neither TEL, TEL/FAX nor ANS/FAX
light is glowing.

You use your machine not only as a fax but also as a telephone.
Press
or
to select the Fax Primary mode.
Fax Primary
In this mode: Your fax machine answers each incoming call after a certain number of rings (see page 2.4) and if you receive a voice call, alerts you
with a special ring.
The Tel/Fax Ready reception mode is a mix between the Tel Ready and Fax ready
modes.
Note: Turning on the fax primary mode on your fax machine won’t turn off ringers
on other telephones in your house or office. Similarly, other phones won’t
distinguish between fax and voice calls.
To select Fax Ready:
What if you answer a fax call?
Press RECEIVE repeatedly until TEL/FAX light comes on.
5
Press ENTER to save the setting.
With your fax machine in Tel/Fax Ready mode, you can easily use your fax machine
on the same line as other telephone(s) already in your home or office.
Now, let’s deal with the two possible ways your phone(s) and your fax can live happily together on one line:
• A phone connected directly (physically) to your fax machine (see page 1.11).
• A phone, connected elsewhere in your home or office.
Fax primary mode in Tel/Fax Ready mode
Use the fax primary mode if you want your fax machine to:
• Answer incoming call without ringing. (However, it beeps at the end of reception.
If you want to mute this beeping, use the silent mode, see page 2.5).
. . . but also . . .
• Alert you when a regular voice call comes in.
If a voice call comes in, your machine detects it and sounds a special ring for about
30 seconds. If you hear it, you will know you should answer.
To make your fax operate this way:

Using a phone connected to your fax machine
If you answer a connected phone and hear fax tones, simply press START and hang
up the handset. Your fax machine will receive the fax call.
Using a phone not connected to your fax machine
If you have another telephone connected to the same phone line as your fax
machine, but not connected directly to your fax machine, you can still receive an
incoming fax call using that phone. Here’s what to do if you answer that second
phone and hear fax tones:

Ans/Fax Ready mode
Use it if:
You are using an answering machine connected directly to your fax
machine.
In this mode: An answering machine externally connected to your fax machine
answers each incoming call. If a voice call comes in, the answering
machine will begin to record the incoming message. If the fax tone
starts, your fax machine will detect it and receive the fax message
automatically.
To select Ans/Fax Ready:
Press RECEIVE repeatedly until ANS/FAX light comes on.
Detection of “silent” fax machines
Some older fax machines don’t send fax tones when transmitting.
However, your fax machine can accommodate these “silent” machines without disrupting your answering machine operation. For more information, call your
authorized Muratec dealer.
When the paper or ink film runs out
Getting the word from your machine
When your fax machine runs out of paper or ink film, it beeps, the ALARM light
glows and the LCD displays Check Rx Paper or Check Ink Film message.
Receiving faxes when out of paper or ink film
If your machine runs out of paper or ink film, it stores up to 50 separate fax receptions in memory. This is called out-of-paper reception. When you replenish the
paper or ink film supply, the fax machine will print the stored messages automatically!
Using an answering machine with your fax machine
If you are connecting an answering machine to your fax machine:
1
Follow the steps on page 1.11 to connect an answering machine to your fax
machine.
2
3
4
On your fax machine, press RECEIVE until the ANS/FAX light comes on.
Set your answering machine to answer calls after no more than two rings.
(Consult the answering machine’s instructions if necessary).
Note: How many pages (as opposed to receptions) your fax machine can store for
out-of-paper reception will vary. It depends on your machine’s memory
capacity and the types of documents being sent to your machine. It also
depends on the resolution settings the remote fax uses when sending faxes
to your machine.
Note: During a power failure, all documents stored in memory will be backed-up
up to 72 hours*.
* The machine’s back-up battery requires about 1 day to reach full charge after to the fax
machine is restored.
Finally, use your answering machine to create a new outgoing message.
Here’s a suggested message:
Hello! You’ve reached [your name or telephone number]. To leave a voice message, please wait for the beep. To send a fax, press Start on your fax
machine. Thanks for calling!
Important: Your answering machine’s outgoing message must be no longer than
10 seconds.

Beyond the basics
Getting everything just the way you want it
The EasyStart feature guided you through the “just-gotta” settings on your machine.
In the next few pages, we will cover other settings in more detail.
Setting up for scans
You can set parameters for how your fax machine scans documents:
• Primary resolution mode — Gives you four ways to send faxes, either — normal, fine or superfine resolutions — or in grayscale mode.
• Primary contrast mode — Sets how light or dark you want faxed documents
to be when they arrive at their destinations.

Press PROGRAM, J, 0, 1. The LCD shows:
Scan Parameters
2
Press ENTER. The LCD asks which resolution you select:
Primary: Normal
If the setting you see is acceptable, skip to step 4.
If not, go on to step 3.
3
To change the setting, press or repeatedly until the mode you want
appears. In this example, we have chosen fine resolution.
Primary: Fine

Press ENTER to save the setting. The LCD asks which contrast setting you select:
Contrast: Normal
If the setting you see is acceptable, skip to step 6.
If not, go on to step 5.
2.2
5
To change the setting, press or repeatedly until the setting you want
appears. In this example, we have chosen light contrast.
Contrast: Light
6
Press ENTER to save the setting.
This section determines the resolution and contrast settings your fax will display
when you insert a document for transmission. If you choose “superfine” and “dark”
in steps 3 and 5, for example, these are the resolution and contrast settings you’ll
see the next time you put a document in the document feeder.
You can always change the resolution and contrast temporarily before sending.
To adjust the resolution and contrast:
• Press RESOLUTION to change the resolution.
• Press CONTRAST to change the contrast.
Beyond the basics
Setting the print parameters
Reduction margin
You can set two parameters for printing received fax messages:
• Print reduction rate
• Reduction margin
Your fax machine’s reduction margin is measured in millimeters (mm).
When a fax message enters your machine’s electronic brain, the machine measures
the message’s length and compares it to (a) the length of your selected paper plus
(b) the reduction margin you set. If the length of the incoming message is shorter
than the sum of (a) and (b), your machine prints the message on just one sheet;
otherwise, it prints the message on more than one sheet.
Print reduction rate
Print reduction lets you set the machine to reduce a large incoming document to a
size which will fit on your paper. Copy reduction lets you reduce the size of copies
made on your fax machine. Here are the options for both print reduction and copy
reduction settings:
Note: An Auto reduction setting and a reduction margin setting of 40mm will
print most incoming faxes as single pages. Try this combination first and
then, only if you have problems with it, select different settings.
Setting the print parameters
Setting
What it does
Auto
Automatically reduces printouts at variable rates down to a
minimum of 75%. Tries to reduce printout to fit on one sheet of
your selected paper size; if cannot, prints the image at 100% size
on two or more pages.
100%
Performs no reduction. (Due to the sender’s TTI, this may print two
pages when receiving a one-page fax document. See 97%, below.)
97%
Reduces an original so that the final printout of a one-page document (if the original is not larger than the paper in your machine)
will be only one page long, despite the TTI.
91%
Provides slightly more reduction.
81%
Provides even greater reduction. Helpful for certain international
stationery sizes, as well as special applications.
75%
Turns legal-sized originals into US letter-sized printed copies.

The printout may omit a small bit of the image at the page break if the
machine tries to reduce a legal-sized page onto letter-sized paper at any setting other than 75%. So whenever possible, load the correct paper size
before receiving a fax (or making a copy) of that size.

Setting ECM
Static on a phone line during a call may ruin your attempts to communicate via fax.
This is because “line noise” can easily disrupt the flow of data from one fax machine
to another.
That’s why your fax machine gives you the chance of operating in Error Correction
Mode (ECM). When two fax machines communicate while running in ECM, the sending machine automatically checks the data, block by block, as it sends. If the
receiving fax machine cannot verify the transmission, the first machine will re-send
the information.
Note: While using ECM gives you a better chance of getting a fax document
through a troublesome phone line, it could also slow down the transmission
time. That’s why we let you turn ECM on or off as you require.
Note: Not all fax machines have ECM. If you have activated ECM and then transmit
to a fax machine not currently using ECM, there will no change in the fax
transmission from a usual, non-ECM transmission.

Beyond the basics
Autodialer
Your fax machine’s autodialer stores your most frequently called phone and fax
numbers so you don’t have to remember them. The autodialer also makes it easy to
dial even the most complicated international calls!
Special dialing characters
There are two kinds of autodialer numbers. The difference between the two is how
you “call them up,”:
• One-touch — Pressing one of the keys, marked A–O on the control panel.
• Speed-dial — Pressing SPEED DIAL/TEL INDEX followed by a three-digit identifier,
from 01 to 85.
Which number do you find easier to read: 919725552009 or 9-1-972-555-2009?
Obviously, it’s the second one. The hyphen (or dash) character (“-”) separates the
numbers. In this example, a 9 is entered for outside-line access, a 1 is entered for
long-distance access, then the area code and the phone number are entered.
The hyphen can also be important if you have to use special long-distance access
codes or country codes for international calling.
Also, certain calls require special symbols besides just numerals. If you make calls
to other countries — or just have your fax machine on an unusual phone system —
you will want to be able to put the appropriate characters in the numbers you store.
That’s why your fax machine allows you to enter special dialing characters. Below is
a brief description of these characters, as well as how you can put them in the numbers you store in the autodialer:
How big is the vault?
Char. What it does
Autodialer basics
How do you autodial?
Your fax machine can store a total of 100 numbers — up to 15 one-touch numbers
and up to 85 speed-dial numbers.
Which number is which?
Your fax machine’s autodialer will hold both fax numbers and phone numbers.
This is possible because your fax machine first checks to see if there’s a document in
the feeder. If there is, the machine dials as a fax machine. If there isn’t, it dials as a
telephone.
EasyDial directory
— or, What the heck’s a Location ID?
Your machine also features a built-in EasyDial directory (see page 2.13) which acts
as a phone book for your fax and phone numbers. Just enter your fax/phone numbers along with their descriptive names in the EasyDial directory. (Your machine
calls this name a Location ID.) The autodialer sorts these alphabetically so, with
EasyDial, you can look them up by name as if you were using a phone book.

EasyDial directory dialing
The EasyDial directory dialing feature makes your autodialer even more like an
electronic phone book. EasyDial sorts and displays numbers alphabetically according to their Location IDs, so you can easily find them and dial them. When the name
you want appears, you just press START to begin a call (either phone or fax).
Your machine’s EasyDial directory alphabetizes in the following order:alphabet,
number and symbols.

When the LCD is showing the name you want to dial, press START.
• If there is a document in the feeder, your machine dials a fax call to the
autodialer number.
• If there is not a document in the feeder, your machine activates the monitor speaker and makes a regular phone call. At this point, you may either:
— Lift the handset
or
— Listen to the monitor speaker until you hear the other person answer,
and then lift the handset to speak.

Take advantage of lower evening and weekend long-distance rates with delayed
transmission. Your fax machine can store up to 30 delayed commands, each of
which you can program up to 31 days in advance.
Important: If you program a full 30 delayed transmission commands, no further
memory transmission is possible until the machine completes at least
one of the delayed commands. (To review memory transmission, see
page 1.17.) However, you can always transmit from the feeder by using
on-hook dialing or an handset (see page 1.18).

When the date and time entry is as you want it, press ENTER to save the
delayed transmission. The LCD shows:
** Reserved **
This means your fax machine is “reserved” for the delayed transmission command you just programmed.
If you set the machine for transmission from memory, it will scan the delayed
command document into memory, and you can use the machine normally.
If you set the machine for transmission from the feeder, the machine can
receive faxes but cannot transmit until the delayed command is completed.
Important: If you have stored too much information in your machine’s memory, a
“Memory Overflow” message may appear on the LCD. This appears
because 1) too many pages have been stored in the memory, or 2) the
pages that are stored have too much information on them for your fax
machine to remember.
If this message appears, press START to tell your fax to keep as many
pages in memory as possible, or press CANCEL to delete from memory
all pages stored during this operation (but not previous operations).
Beyond the basics
Reviewing or canceling delayed commands
If you have stored a delayed command in your fax machine, it will hold it in memory until it either completes the command successfully or reaches its maximum
number of redial attempts (see page 1.19). Your machine can store up to 30 delayed
commands. It identifies each by a two-digit command number ranging from 01 to 30.
The same procedure lets you display your machine’s stored commands and gives
you a chance to cancel them, if necessary:
1
Press REVIEW COMMANDS.
• If your machine is currently holding no delayed commands — It
will beep briefly and display “No Command” on the LCD. To return to
standby mode, press STOP.
• But if there are commands in your machine’s memory, the LCD shows:
C01:9-555-2311
Here, you see command 01, followed by the phone number it is set to dial.
• If the command is to perform a broadcast or sequential polling,
“Broadcast” will appear instead of the phone number. (See “Broadcasting,”
pages 2.16–2.18.)
C01:Broadcast
• If the command is to perform a one-touch dial, a one-touch number will
appear instead of the phone number.

To keep this command but continue reviewing stored commands, press PROGRAM.
To keep this command and stop reviewing commands, press STOP to return
your machine to standby mode.
To cancel the command, press CANCEL again and return to step 2 to view
other commands.
Printing a delayed command list
Can’t remember the details about a delayed transmission command you set up? Or,
has someone in your office set up a delayed command and now you have no idea
why the machine is “reserved” and how long it will stay that way?
For situations like these, your machine can print a command list which tells you:
• The command’s identification number
• The phone number, one-touch number or speed-dial number
• The start time (which appears in the same DD,HH:MM format you saw in the previous instructions for actually setting up a delayed transmission command)
• A “Option” telling the fax communication options, such as delayed, broadcast,
polling, etc..
• A “note” shows group number if the command is a relay broadcast initiation operation (see page 2.17 for more information)
To print a delayed command list, press PROGRAM, F, 1, ENTER.

The basics of broadcasting
Delayed broadcasting
The fastest way to fax one document to many recipients is broadcasting. You can
use broadcasting from any function requiring the entry of a fax number!
That means you can perform delayed broadcasting (see right column) and even
broadcasting to “hub” units for relay broadcast initiation (see next page).
In an ordinary broadcast, you send a fax as you normally would, except you add
more fax numbers. You can enter up to 120 numbers (20 normally dialed numbers,
plus 100 autodialer numbers).
What if you want the broadcast to happen later? That’s the purpose of setting up a
delayed broadcast.
Note: If you frequently broadcast a document to the same set of remote fax
machines, you can group these units’ phone numbers together under a programmable one-touch key (see page 2.28). In this way, you can initiate a
broadcast at the touch of just a single button.
We’ll assume you are familiar with regular fax transmission, and shorten the
instructions.

Relay broadcast initiation
Setting up, a relay broadcast initiation
Relay broadcasting is a powerful function that takes advantage of a remote “hub” to
reduce your total communication costs.
A “hub” fax machine is one to which you send a document, which in turn relays it to
other machines which you do not actually call. The “hub” performs a relay broadcast, and the machine which sends the original document to the “hub” has
performed a relay broadcast initiation.
Your fax machine does not have relay broadcast feature, but it does have relay
broadcast initiation.
For you to perform relay broadcast initiation, three things must be true:
• The remote fax machine must be a Muratec fax machine with “hub” capability.
Note: If you are not sure whether the unit to which you want to transmit is a
true “hub” unit, please consult your authorized Muratec dealer.
• The call group(s) must exist on the remote fax machine.
• You must know each call group’s identifier number.
To set up a relay broadcast initiation:
How it works
Let’s say you’re in Los Angeles and need to fax the same document to four locations
in the Chicago area. You could send fax transmissions to each location, but that
would be four long-distance calls. With relay broadcast initiation, you send the document once to your Chicago office’s “hub” fax, which then sends it on to each of the
four locations.

What happens when you perform relay broadcast initiation:
• You use your fax machine to send a document to at least one call group in a
remote “hub” machine’s autodialer. This can occur either immediately or as a
delayed command (see pages 2.14–2.15).
• The remote “hub” unit receives your document and stores it in memory.
• The remote machine retransmits — relays — the document to each fax number
in each call group you specified. This is the relay broadcast you initiated.

Enter the fax number for the remote “hub” unit. You may either press a onetouch key, enter a speed-dial number or just use the numeric keypad to enter
the number. Do not press START.

Polling
Polling allows someone to fax a document to you without the other person having to
make (and pay for) the call. Your machine can perform:
• Regular polling — Retrieves a document from the remote fax machine.
• Sequential polling — Retrieves a document from several remote fax machines.
• F-code polling — Retrieves a document from a fax machine that supports ITU-T subaddress transactions. (See “F-code polling,” on pages 2.26—2.27.)

Beyond the basics
F-code communication
F-code: an introduction
Creating or modifying an F-code box
The ITU-T, part of the United Nations agency that maintains international telecommunications standards (see the Glossary that begins on page 3.16), has now created
a fax industry standard for using sub-addressing and password-based communications with not only other Muratec fax machines but also other manufacturers’
machines. One name for this standard is F-Code, and that is what we’ll call it in
these instructions and on your machine’s display.
To use the F-code box, you must have the F-code boxes set up on your fax machine.
You may also want to modify existing F-code boxes (but, to do so, you must know the
each box’s I.D. code; see step 5 and step 14).
To create or modify an F-code box:
1
Press PROGRAM, E, 1.
Set F-Code Box
How sub-addressing works: think of a mailroom
If you are new to the concept of sub-addressing, think about how someone receives
mail addressed to a department within that person’s company. For example, mail
for Accounting gets to the mailroom for the entire company. The Mail Department
then routes the mail to Accounting.
That’s the idea behind sub-addressing. Once your fax and another F-Code-compatible fax begin their communication, they exchange special F-Code signals to indicate
just where the fax really should go. It’s as if the sending fax were saying, “Take this
one and deliver it to room 48” and the receiving fax were replying, “48? OK, will do.”
For greater security, you can set up an ITU-T-compatible sub-address and password
with F-Code, which lets you use secure transmission and polling in communication
with any other fax machine, so long as it, too, uses the F-Code standard from ITU-T.
To use ITU-T sub-addressing and password features, you must create F-Code boxes
in your machine. Your machine can use up to 10 of these boxes. You can store up to
30 documents (not pages) into each F-Code box.

Press ENTER.
• If you are creating this F-code box for the first time, the following display
won’t appear. Skip to step 6.
• If you selected a previously created F-code box, the LCD shows:
Before you set up an F-code box, there are a few things you should know:
• The remote fax machine must support the ITU-T subaddress and password capabilities, and the remote fax users must be using it.
• Your machine’s F-code box works like a normal SecureMail mailbox except that
it accepts and stores ITU-T-standard F-code secure communication.
• The received documents are stored in the F-code box.
To print them, you have to enter an I.D. code.
(See “Print a document received in F-code box,” page 2.25.)
• Your machine can create up to 10 F-code boxes. Each box can receive up to 30
documents.

The machine is asking for your F-code box’s password.
This is the password for ITU-T-compatible F-code fax transactions. (It is not an
I.D. code for your machine. If you set the password, a caller must know and
use it in order to send a fax to you via F-code communication.
Note: You do not need a password to use the F-code box. However, using a
password will make your F-code communications much more secure.

Note: Your fax machine can normally store incoming documents in F-code
boxes (up to the limits of its memory) as long as 31 days, after which
it automatically erases the documents. But if your machine has plenty
of memory, you may want to override the 31-day limit to keep the documents indefinitely. If so, enter 00.

To print the list, press PROGRAM, E, 2, ENTER.
Beyond the basics
Printing a document received in an F-code box
F-code transmission and polling
When your machine receives a document via ITU-T sub-addressing from another fax
machine, your machine will print a message alerting the person for whom the document is intended. Then the person has a certain number of days in which to print
out the message before your machine erases it. (see step 13, on page 2.23)
With F-code, your machine can send secure transmissions to other manufacturers’
machines, and perform polling from other makers’ machines, as well. You can do
this in one of two ways:
• Press a programmable one-touch key programmed for sub-address sending. (See
“Programmable one-touch key,” on pages 2.32-2.35)
. . . or . . .
• Enter the ITU-T subaddress and password directly, which is what we will now
describe.
Note: For this operation to work, two things must be true:
•You must know the F-code box’s two-digit number.
•You must know the four-digit I.D. code for the F-code box.
To print a received message from an F-code box:

Programmable one-touch keys
Using the power of programmable one-touch keys
The programmable one-touch keys P1–P5 simplify complex fax operations, letting
you really tap into your machine’s power.
You can “teach” these keys the following multi-step operations for one-key press
convenience:
• Delayed transmission (pages 2.14–2.15)
• Broadcasting (page 2.16)
• Relay broadcast initiation (pages 2.17–2.18)
• Polling, regular or sequential (pages 2.19–2.20)
• F-code transmission (pages 2.25–2.27)
• F-code polling (pages 2.25–2.27)
Setup for each operation is very similar. Each time, you tell the machine four
things:
• How — The key you are programming
• Who — The number(s) the machine should dial
• What — The operation it should perform
• When — The date(s) and time(s) when you want it to perform the operation.

Keeping things secure
Your machine’s security features can help you keep private fax documents private,
avoid unwanted outside communication and even protect against unauthorized use
of your machine.
The key to it all: the passcode
Your machine has a protection passcode system which is central to the machine’s
security features. If you set the passcode to anything besides 0000, this passcode provides access to many other security features.
To set your machine’s passcode:
1
Decide upon the four-digit passcode (0001–9999) you want to use. Write the
passcode down, and put it in a safe place.
Important: Do not use 0000. This turns off passcode protection.

However, the first operation will proceed unaffected, even if you fail to enter
the correct passcode for the second entry.
Security reception
With your fax machine’s security reception, you can tell it to keep all received faxes
in memory and not to print them. Later, you instruct it to print out the saved faxes.
This is great if, for example, you have concerns about after-hours workers nosing
around in documents intended for your eyes only!
Important: For this feature to work, you must have preset the passcode (see page

Masking the PIN
To prevent unauthorized long-distance calls, some office telephone systems require
you to enter not only the phone number but also a personal identification number
(PIN) whenever you dial an outside number beginning with 1.
If that’s true for you, you’ll probably want to keep that PIN confidential, so unauthorized persons can’t use it. Fortunately, your fax’s PIN mask feature makes such
confidentiality possible. With the PIN mask activated, you can dial a fax number
plus a PIN, but the PIN will not appear in a journal, error message printout, delayed
command list or even TCR, where an unauthorized user might see it. The PIN may be
up to eight characters in length (it can include the * or # symbols, if necessary), and
can be entered from the numeric keypad.
Important: For this feature to work, the passcode (see page 2.37) must be something besides 0000. You must also know the passcode.
There are three possible settings for the PIN mask feature:
• Off — The feature is not working. Any PIN you enter will appear on any display
or printout which shows what you dial.
• Mode 1 — Each remote fax unit has a departmental PIN access code. This count
• Mode 2 — Each fax user has a departmental PIN access code. This counts the
number of telephone calls the user has made.
Note: If you select Mode 1 and you will use a one-touch or speed-dial number, you
must store the PIN access code for the remote unit within that number.
However, if you select Mode 2, this is not necessary. (See “Autodialing while
using the PIN mask,” page 2.40 for further details.)
:6296
Press ENTER.
• If you enter the correct passcode, your fax machine will print all documents in its memory and then erase them. It will also turn security
reception off until the next time it’s programmed to security receive.
• If you enter an incorrect code, your fax machine will refuse to print and
security reception remains active.
• If your fax machine has not received any documents, “No Doc. Stored”
message will show on the LCD and security reception remains active.

Your fax machine’s Block Junk Fax feature lets you bar the gates against unauthorized incoming faxes (“junk fax”). Before beginning, first understand how this
feature works, to determine if it’s right for you. There are four possible settings:
• Off — The feature is not activated.
• Mode 1 — Your fax machine checks whether any phone number in your autodialer matches the last four digits of the remote fax’s subscriber ID. If it doesn’t
find a match, your machine disconnects the call.
• Mode 2 — This mode rejects any call from a number whose last four digits match
any number in the blocked numbers list.
• Mode 3 — This rejects both numbers not in the autodialer and numbers that are
in the blocked numbers list. This lets you keep a number on your autodialer yet
still block its incoming calls by putting it in the blocked numbers list.
Before you activate the Block Junk Fax feature, consider:
• Not all fax machine owners enter their phone numbers in their Subscriber IDs. —
With this feature activated, your machine would reject faxes from such machines.
• Access codes can cause confusion. — If an autodialer entry ends with these longdistance or other codes, Block Junk Fax will block out calls from those faxes.

When the message is as you want it, press ENTER to save it.
Managing your fax with its journal and reports
Setting the activity journal
Just as a checkbook records your financial transactions, your fax machine keeps an
activity journal which records its 50 most recent fax transactions. The activity journal lists the following information for each fax transaction:
• Assigned number, starting each day at number 1
• Remote location called
• Resolution mode
• Starting date and time
• Duration, in minutes and seconds
• Length, in number of pages
• Result of the call — If preceded by an asterisk (*), this signifies an ECM communication (see page 2.4)
• Any special operations — For example, a fax call made using an handset will
appear as “Manual”
If you want, your fax machine will print the activity journal automatically after
50 transactions. To toggle this automatic printing on or off:
1
Press PROGRAM, G, 1. The LCD shows:
Journal On/Off

Setting the Transmit confirmation reports: TCRs
Your fax machine can print a transmit confirmation report after sending a fax to any
Group 3 fax machine.
What the reports tell you
The TCR gives you the following information for each communication:
• Remote location called
• Resolution mode
• Starting date and time
• Duration, in minutes and seconds
• Length, in number of pages
• Result of the call
• Any special operations — For example, a fax call made using an handset will
appear as “Manual”
• Sample of the document — An image of the first page of the document
If an error occurs, the TCR tells you the remote location called and the error code and
error message (see pages 3.6–3.7).
Press PROGRAM, G, 3. The LCD shows:

this transmission.
• If you chose OFF, and the report light does not glow:
Pressing the REPORT key will turn the REPORT light on and activate the TCR printing for this transmission.
once or twice until the setting you
It used to be that, to have two phone numbers, you had to have two phone lines,
along with the expensive phone equipment that goes with it. But many phone companies now offer their customers a special service which makes it possible for one
phone line to do the work of two.
With this service, you physically still have one phone line, but electronically, you
have two phone numbers. Your phone recognizes these different numbers and rings
differently for each one.
For example, this makes it easy for you to have both a business number and a home
number on one phone line, so you can answer one with “Jane Doe Consulting,” and
the other with “Hello.” You get the idea. This works because you can tell the difference between the distinctive patterns of the two rings.
Your fax machine, too, is smart enough to tell the difference between two different
numbers that is ringing it. All you have to do is give it a little help at the beginning
and begin to enjoy the benefits of its OneLine + distinctive ring detection (DRD) feature.
In order to use OneLine + DRD, your phone company must set up your distinctive
ring service. When it does, it will assign a ring pattern, expressed in time. For
example, the standard telephone ring is 2 seconds “on” (ringing) and 4 seconds “off”
(silent), after which it repeats itself (hence the term, ring pattern).
Beyond the basics
Some telephone companies provide only a very general description — for example,
“short-short-long” — of their DRD ring patterns. Fortunately, though, your fax has
eight possible distinctive ring patterns for use with OneLine + DRD. One of them
should work with your phone company’s DRD service. This chart lists the patterns:
Pattern

Contact your phone company and confirm that the phone company has set up
DRD service for you. If possible, also find out which distinctive ring pattern the
phone company has assigned you.

Ring Pattern: C

Press ENTER to set your machine to the displayed ring pattern.
Important: If your telephone company gives you only very general ring pattern
specifications, or if you otherwise encounter a problem while trying to
use your machine’s DRD feature, please try ALL of the listed ring
patterns. (If you still have a problem after trying all of the patterns,
please call the Muratec Customer Support Center. From the United
States, call 972-364-3350; for the number to call from Canada, check
your in-box documentation).
Important: With your machine set for DRD, it won’t respond to any ring pattern
other than the one you selected above. To reset the fax so it will
respond once again to normal rings, repeat steps 2–4. But in step 3,
toggle it to “Off.” Your fax will now respond normally.
Call request
Wondering why your monitor speaker’s activation key is called MONITOR/CALL?
Now, we will explain the CALL part of the name. It may be hard to believe, but you
actually can send or receive a fax message and have a regular phone conversation
on the same call (although, obviously, not at the same time). This is called a call
request. It does not matter whether you are sending the fax or receiving it. You may
fax first and then talk, or talk first and then fax.
Important: For this feature to work, the remote fax machine must have a similar
call-request capability.
DRD:Off

For example: pattern C is 0.3 seconds ringing, 0.2 seconds silent, 1 second ringing,
0.2 seconds silent, 0.3 seconds ringing and 4 seconds silent; then it goes back to the
first 0.3-second ring and starts over.

Lift your machine’s handset, and listen for a few seconds. You may hear a
brief series of fax tones.
Shortly, the line will open and the person at the other end of the line will
answer. You and the other person now can have a normal phone conversation.
Caller-ID
Caller-ID is your local telephone company’s service that allows you to see a display
of the caller’s phone (or fax) number or name before either your fax machine automatically receives the call or you pick up the handset.
If you order the caller-ID service from your local telephone company, the following
information will show on the LCD while your machine is ringing:
• The first 16 characters of the caller’s phone number or name on the LCD —
If both the caller’s phone number and name are received, only the name will
appear on the LCD.
. . . or . . .
• “Private”, meaning that the caller intentionally blocked the transmission of
his/her ID.
. . . or . . .
• “Out Of Area”, meaning that the call came from outside your caller-ID service
area.
Note: Your fax machine cannot receive the caller-ID in the following cases:
• While either the fax machine is communicating or you are making a telephone call.
• The number of rings is set to one ring.
Please set the number of rings to two or more rings to receive the caller-ID.
• The line condition is poor.
Note: For more information about caller-ID service, please contact your local telephone company.
Caller -ID directory dialing
Your fax machine saves the 10 most recent incoming caller-IDs. When the 11th call
is received the oldest caller-ID will be erased automatically.
Note: To use the caller-ID directory, at least one caller-ID must be received.
1
If you want to use the caller-ID directory to make a regular phone call, make
sure there is no document in the feeder and then skip to step 3.
If you want to use the caller-ID directory to send a fax, insert the document.

Adjust resolution and contrast if necessary.
Press SPEED DIAL/TEL INDEX twice. The LCD shows the latest caller-ID.
Note: If your machine doesn’t have any caller-IDs stored, it will show the
EasyDial directory (see page 2.13) on the LCD.

When the LCD is showing the caller-ID you want to dial, press START.
• If there is a document in the feeder, your machine will dial a fax call to the
selected number.
• If there isn’t a document in the feeder, your machine will activate the
monitor speaker and dial a regular phone call. At this point, you may

Solving communications problems
Occasionally during transmissions, your fax machine will encounter trouble in
transmission or reception. If it does, its alarm will sound. You can identify the problem with LCD messages, printed check messages and error reports.
What you see on the LCD
Comm. Error
Your fax machine will sound an alarm — a series of short beeps — if either of these
two problems occurs:
• It has trouble transmitting or receiving.
• It runs out of paper or ink film.
A communication error disrupted reception or
transmission. If you were transmitting, press
STOP to clear the error message and then try the
transmission again. If you were receiving a fax,
try to contact the other person and have him/her
try the transmission again.
Enter No.(0-32)
You entered an incorrect call group for relay
broadcast initiation. Your machine can maintain 32 call groups, numbered 1-32 (call group 0
covers all the groups.) Determine the correct call
group and re-enter its identifier number.

Errors
Specific errors
Your machine occasionally experiences communications errors, which may be caused
by anything from lightning to telephone line interference. The fax machine at the
other end of the line can also cause communication errors.
Trying your call may be all that’s necessary. However, if the problem persists regularly, call your local telephone company for help. If that call does not help and the
problem persists regularly, call your authorized Muratec dealer.
Some of the error codes you may see on an error report:
Error reports
D.0.2
When an error occurs, your fax machine prints an error report. Each fax error
report lists an error message which includes:
• A possible solution to the problem
• The sending location (if the remote fax stores a Location ID of its own)
• The result — which is a special error code.
• A sample of the document’s first page.
D.0.6, D.0.7 Either the remote fax unit did not respond, the call did not go through
or someone pressed STOP while the calling fax machine was dialing.
Call again.
Kinds of error codes
The error code listed in the “Result” column of the error report indicates the specific
problem encountered:
• “D” codes — Occur while dialing
• “R” codes — Occur during reception
• “T” codes — Occur during transmission

Caring for your fax machine
With proper installation and a little maintenance, your fax machine should give you
dependable service for years to come.
Follow these suggestions to keep it in top form:
• Always make sure your fax machine is installed according to our specifications,
including using an electrical surge suppressor. (If necessary, review “Pick an
installation spot before going ahead,” page 1.6.)
• Always use good, copier-quality paper.
• Always clean your fax machine as needed (see “Cleaning tips,” below).
• Never install your fax machine where it can overheat, gather dust or get
splashed by any liquids (even water).
Cleaning tips
Some things to keep in mind about cleaning your fax machine:
• Do clean it! Dust and dirt, especially around the fax machine’s air vents (see
right column) can shorten your machine’s life.
• Always unplug the fax machine before you clean it.
• Never spray any cleaner DIRECTLY onto your fax machine. The drifting
spray could damage components inside.
• Never try to clean SEALED areas inside your fax machine. This will protect
your safety and the safety of the machine.
• For cleaning external surfaces, such as the cover and handset, use a mild
cleaning solution sprayed onto a lint-free towel or cloth.
• Always use a lint-free cloth (or swabs) moistened with alcohol to gently wipe
components inside your machine.
• In areas you cannot reach with swabs, always use dry, dust-free compressed air
to gently blow away dust and other material.
3.8
Keep the air vents clean
Never cover your machine, or it may overheat.
Clean your machine’s air vents periodically. When you do, use a vacuum
cleaner or brush. (Do not wipe the air vents with a damp cloth!)
The air vents are located on the machine’s upper rear and lower rear sections:

Follow the system’s voice instructions.
General questions
Q: Where do I add ink or toner to make my fax machine’s printouts darker?
A: Your fax machine dose not use ink or toner. Instead, it uses a special printing
technique called Film Imaging, also known as thermal-transfer printing. To
adjust the darkness of copies or transmissions, insert a document and press
CONTRAST repeatedly to adjust the contrast setting. “Dark” prints as the darkest setting. The machine will reset automatically to normal contrast after the
copying or sending.
Note: You can’t adjust the darkness of an incoming fax printout.
Q: When I unplug my machine or if the power goes off, will I lose the information
I have stored — such as my TTI, autodialer entries, the time and date, etc. —
and have to re-enter them?
A: No. Your machine has two special backup batteries.
One protects user settings for several days if power fails or if your machine is
disconnected from the power source. The second battery is rechargeable and
preserves data in the memory for up to 72 hours in case of a power loss This
battery requires about 1 day to reach full charge after power to the machine is
restored.
We advise you to restore power to the machine as soon as possible.
Q: Can I use a dust cover on my fax machine?
A: No! A dust cover blocks air circulation, which could cause your machine to
overheat. (See page 1.6 for other guidelines.)
Q: Can I re-use the ink film when I run out of it?
A: Yes, but only for an emergency. The quality of the printouts will be lowered,
because previous printouts will have used parts of the roll. Always try to have
at least one replacement roll of ink film, so as to avoid this situation.
Sending faxes
Q: Sometimes, I try to send a fax while using either the handset or the
MONITOR/CALL feature. But, when the other side answers, I hear a horrible
screeching sound, so I hang up. What’s happening?
A: That was the other fax machine trying to say “Hello” to your machine. You will
hear sounds like that any time you call a fax machine which is set to answer
automatically (as when you set your machine to Fax Ready mode). It’s by using
these tones that machines send faxes over ordinary phone lines. So, next time
you hear such tones, press START (and, if you are using the handset, hang up)
to send a fax.
Q: I just sent a fax. However, the number that appeared in my machine’s display
during the transmission was not the number I dialed. Why?
A: That number you saw is programmed into the remote fax machine by the user.
Some users prefer different numbers to appear than the ones they are really
using. And some people take over another person’s fax machines that has
already been programmed and don’t know how to change the original number.
Q: Can I transmit and receive at the same time?
A: No. Use the call request feature (see pages 2.47–2.48) to ask the person at the
remote fax machine if he or she wants to transmit or receive after your fax
communication is complete.
3.11
Just in case …
Q: Do I have to dial a 1 for a long-distance call?
A: Yes. Dialing a fax number is just like dialing any other phone number, so be
sure to include any special long-distance codes or dialing pauses when dialing.
Also, remember to include them when you set your autodialer numbers.
Q: How do I send a fax to an overseas telephone number?
A: Dialing requirements for international calls may vary depending on your local
telephone company’s requirements. For most international calls, call 00, then
the appropriate country code, city code and phone number. (You may find country and city codes in the front section of your telephone directory.)
Q: Can I transmit if my fax machine runs out of paper?
A: Yes. But a transmit confirmation report (see page 2.46) is not available when
you transmit without recording paper in your fax machine.
Q: Can I transmit a document that’s extra long?
A: Yes, if the receiving fax machine is equipped to handle long documents. Many
machines have a special setting which allows them to receive documents that
exceed the normal length.
Q: Can I transmit a page from a newspaper?
A: No. A newspaper page can jam in your document feeder. First, use a copy
machine to make a copy of the newspaper. Make sure the copy you make will
fit into the fax machine. Then transmit the copy.
Q: Can I transmit a page with correction fluid on it?
A: Yes, if the fluid is completely dry before you begin transmission.
Q: How can I be sure my fax was received?
A: Set your machine to print a confirmation report after each transmission (see
page 2.46).
Q: I don’t want to install a dedicated phone line for my fax machine, so I have connected the machine to a PBX phone system. When I get a fax call, all the phones
ring! How do I prevent this?
A: Call your PABX manufacturer or telephone company for assistance. Either may
be able to convert one of the PBX lines for use only by your fax machine.
Q: Sometimes when I dial a fax call by using either the handset or MONITOR/CALL,
I don’t hear the fax receiving tones from the other machine. Am I doing something wrong?
A: When this happens, try pressing START (and then hanging up the handset if
you are using it), as usual. It’s possible you are calling an older, non-standard
fax machine that doesn’t emit answering tones. Even a few Group 3 faxes (see
3.12
“Glossary,” page 3.15) on the market sound a sending tone but don’t sound a
receiving tone. After you transmit, call the person at the other fax machine to
see if he/she got your document.
Q: I inserted a document in the feeder and dialed a fax number, but my machine
did not transmit the document; instead, “* Auto Redial *” now appears on
my LCD. What does this mean?
A: The remote fax machine was busy, so your machine will try the call again,
automatically. As long as it hasn’t stored more than 30 delayed commands, your
machine should still accept commands from you. If it has exceeded this quantity
and will accept no more commands, try canceling one of the delayed commands
(see page 2.15). If the machine still won’t cooperate, keep canceling commands
until it does.
Q: The specifications (page AI.1) list an average per-page transmission time, but
when I transmit a page it can take much longer. Why?
A: We base this specification on transmission of an industry-standard test document called ITU-T Test Document 1 (sometimes also called the “Slerexe letter”).
Fax manufacturers use this method to test transmission speeds. However:
• The pages you send may be darker, or otherwise contain more information,
than ITU-T Test Document 1.
• The transmission time measured for test documents doesn’t include handshake time — the time during which two fax machines “introduce”
themselves to each other and “agree on” the parameters of the call.
• The specification time is based on the use of normal resolution mode. You
may be using fine, superfine or grayscale transmission, each of which takes
longer than normal mode.
Reports
Q: I called the number 00-555-555-1212, but not all of the digits appear on my
transmit confirmation report (TCR). Why didn’t the whole number appear? How
can I be sure my document went to the right location?
A: The numbers you enter using the fax keypad are temporarily stored in a memory “buffer.” It’s only the last part of the phone number that the buffer
“remembers.” An easy way to avoid getting incomplete telephone numbers on
your printouts is to store your most frequently used numbers as one-touch keys
or speed-dial numbers. These autodialer numbers will appear in their entirety
on your TCR.
Just in case …
Receiving faxes
Q: My fax never answers. What’s wrong?
A: Check to make sure your fax machine is properly connected to a working AC
power outlet and phone jack (see page 1.8). If you are using a second phone
with your machine, make sure it’s connected properly (page 1.11).
Q: Sometimes when I answer my machine with the handset, I hear a beeping
sound that repeats every few seconds. Is this a fax?
A: Yes. When you hear such fax tones, someone is trying to send you a fax. Next
time, press START and hang up the handset. Your fax will receive the message.
Q: Does my fax machine have to be plugged in to a power source just to receive a
message?
A: Yes. You can’t receive a fax unless your fax machine is plugged into both the
phone jack and the AC power jack. Make sure your fax machine is always
plugged in so you never miss an important fax message.
Q: Can I receive a fax if I’m using the phone on my machine?
A: You can receive a fax from the person to whom you are talking. When that person has a document ready in his/her machine’s feeder, press START. However,
like any regular one-line phone, your fax machine can handle only one call at a
time.
Polling
Q: What’s the purpose of polling?
A: Polling lets you automatically “pull” a document from another fax machine.
You can poll whenever you need to retrieve information and don’t want the
source to pay for the phone call. With polling, you pay for the call and get the
information you need.
Working with your answering machine
Q: People have complained that they call my fax machine and hear my answering
machine’s message, but are cut off before they can send a fax.
A: Any remote fax machine attempting to send a fax must “hear” responding fax
tones within 40 seconds of the person at that machine pressing the start key.
That 40 seconds includes getting the dial tone, dialing the number, “listening”
to the pause before the ringing starts and the remote fax machine answering
the ring. Only after that time does your message play
That’s why we urge you to make a short outgoing message. The shorter the
overall waiting period, the more likely it is that the remote fax machine will
proceed with the transmission. Please make an outgoing message that is no
longer than 10 seconds (see page 1.23 for a suggestion).
How your fax machine works
The concept of how a fax machine works is simple. Here’s a simple analogy. Let’s
say you want to mail a gift to a friend:
• You take the item, wrap it and send it.
• Days later, your friend receives the package, unwraps it and uses it.
Now, let’s apply that to fax communication.
You put a page into your fax machine’s feeder and call a fax number. Your machine
makes a connection with the other machine, and then …
• An image scanner in your fax machine examines the information on the page.
That’s how your machine takes the document.
• Your fax machine translates the scanned information into a numeric code and
compresses the code for the fastest possible transmission speed.
That’s how your machine wraps the document.
• Finally, your fax machine sends the compressed code.
That’s how your machine sends the document.
On the other end of the line …
• The remote fax machine receives the code.
• The remote fax machine uncompresses and deciphers the code, turning it into a
representation of the scan your machine made.
That’s how your machine unwraps the document.
• The remote fax machine prints the representation.
Now, the recipient can use the document.
… and that’s how fax works!
The only difference between a regular telephone call and a fax call is the content of
the transmission:
• On a regular call, your telephone sends your voice.
• On a fax call, your fax machine sends a coded image.
If your fax machine is in T/F Ready mode and you have other telephone extensions
on the same line, all the other phones will ring. In fact, there is no way to tell if an
incoming call is from a fax machine or from a person until you answer, or your fax
machine answers. You will know it’s a fax call if, upon answering, you hear a beeping sound that repeats every few seconds. This sound is each fax machine’s way of
identifying itself to a machine it calls. It’s much like tour making a voice call and
3.13
Just in case …
identifying yourself, “Hello, this is [your name].” When you press START, your fax
machine responds to these signals using other special tones (to us humans, they
sound a bit like screeches) which are its way of responding to the other machine’s
“greeting.” This communication is called handshaking.
The way fax machines work is regulated closely by international standards applied
by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), an agency of the United
Nations. These standards ensure the compatibility of your fax machine with millions of other fax machines worldwide.

Automatic fallback — The ability of a fax machine to slow down (“fall back”),
when communicating with another fax which is communicating at a slower rate.
Automatic reduction — Many Muratec fax machines will automatically reduce
the size of documents being transmitted to accommodate the effective printing
width of the receiving unit. For example, this allows a fax machine with a 10″ scanning width to send an image 10″ wide to a unit with an 8.5″ print width. The
receiving fax machine will receive a reduced-size printout of the complete image.
Bit — The smallest unit of information in a computer. Some Muratec fax machines,
which are actually computers “dedicated” to telecommunications, allow users to
change bits of information to provide or cancel features through software settings.
The word “bit” is a contraction of the two words “binary digit.”
Bits per second — See bps.
Black density — Also called black coverage. The amount of non-white area on a
page. For example, most regular office correspondence has a black density well
under 10% due to the presence of margins, spaces between words, spaces between
lines and paragraphs and even spaces within letters. However, drawings and photographs have a much higher black density, sometimes approaching 100%. The
higher a page’s black density, the more slowly a fax machine sends it.
bps — Bits per second. Used to express the speed of transmission of data. Because
fax transmission treats a document as a graphic image rather than as a series of
alphabetic and numeric characters, bps does not correspond to the number of characters transmitted per second.
Byte — A group of digital elements, usually sent as eight bits to the byte.
Call reserve — Also called call request. An ITU-T standard fax feature which allows
a user to request voice communication prior to, during or after transmission.
Call-waiting service — An optional telephone company service that alerts you to
another incoming call when the phone is already in use. Call-waiting signals often
cause interruption of fax transmission or reception.
Caller ID — Optional service provided by your local telephone company that allows
you to see a display of the number (phone or fax) that is calling.
CCITT — See ITU-T.
CCD, CIS — Charged coupled device, contact image sensor. Two types of scanning
mechanisms used in some Muratec fax machines. The CCD “reads” fluorescent light
bouncing off a document. The CIS uses a flat bar of light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
Compatibility — The term “compatible” describes the ability of separate things to
function together. Your Muratec fax machine features ITU-T Group 3 compatibility,
the modern standard for worldwide communication.
Confidential transmission — See SecureMail.
Confirmation report — See TCR.
Copy mode — Allows your fax machine to be used as a convenience copier.
Cover page (automatic) — A small, user-created message which can be the first
page of every transmission.
Data compression — Used in digital fax machines to speed transmission. See also
Digital fax, MH and MSE, SMSE.
Default — The setting your machine will always refer to if no other action has been
programmed. For example, you can set the default for this machine to send a fax by
using its memory. If you set this action as the default, that’s how your machine will
always send a fax, until you tell it to do differently.
Delayed command — Transmission or polling operation set by the user to occur
later, automatically, at a predetermined time. Great for reducing costs by making
fax calls during times when telephone costs are lowest, such as late at night or on
weekends.
Digital — Using the binary system (which uses a combination of 0s or 1s) to
describe everything, so that 0 means off and 1 means on; digital fax machines convert the graphic image of your document into a series of zeros and ones by using the
binary system of transmission to encode black and white occurrences. This
increases transmission speed by passing over white spaces. See also White-line skip.
Digital fax — Unlike analog systems that scan every portion of a document, digital
fax machines survey a document’s overall picture content. Digital fax machines
scan a line and convert the information into a binary code of zeros and ones. The fax
machine takes this information and compresses it, providing high transmission
speeds. Many Muratec units offer proprietary methods for faster transmissions
between Muratec-manufactured units (see also MSE, SMSE).
DIP switches — Dual in-line package switch; a two-position on/off switch. Many
Muratec fax machines include DIP switches to control optional settings or features.
Effective printing width — The widest image that can be printed on a fax.
3.15
Just in case …
Effective scan width — The maximum width the scanner in a fax can scan
during transmission.
F-Code — The ITU-T has created a fax industry standard for using subaddressing/password-based communications with not only Muratec fax machines but
also other manufacturers’ fax machines.
Facsimile (or fax) — A form of communication involving the scanning and decoding
of a document into electrical signals and transmitting of the document, over telephone lines to another device. This device then reconstructs the signals to produce an
exact duplicate of the document. Also, a machine that performs such communication.
Fallback — Group 3 fax machines operate at the highest transmission speed possible on a given telephone line. Muratec systems offer automatic fallback; if line
quality drops during transmission, the fax machine will reduce speed to the fastest
possible level.
Fine resolution — 203H × 196V lpi. Also shown as G3F (“Group 3 fine”) on some fax
units.
Grayscale — Not a level of resolution, but a method of scanning and transmitting
halftone images. Fax machines with grayscale abilities interpret photographs in
levels of gray between white and black. The transmitting fax machine must have
grayscale ability to send a photographic image accurately, but the receiving
machine does not need it to print the image.
Group 3 — Refers to fax machines that use digital encoding. These units transmit
one page in less than one minute and produce resolution of 203 × 98, 203 × 196, or
203 × 392 lpi.
Halftone — See Grayscale.
Handshaking — An exchange of data between telecommunications and/or
computer equipment that “introduces” two systems to each other. For example,
faxes use a handshaking protocol to identify the ITU-T group of each unit and to
begin fax communication.
Hub — See Relay broadcasting.
Hz (or Hertz) — A measure of frequency equal to one cycle per second. Used in the
specifications for a fax machine, it identifies the AC power the unit requires.
ITU-T — International Telecommunications Union – Telecommunications Sector.
(Formerly known as CCITT, for Consultative Committee for International Telegraph
and Telephone.) A telecommunications forum for member countries of the United
Nations, whose Study Group XIV established the primary groups for fax equipment,
covering communication protocol and transmission. Muratec Group 3 fax machines
offer the fastest transmissions allowed by the ITU-T when communicating with other
Group 3 units.
3.16
ITU-T
Test Document 1 — Also called the Slerexe (“slehr-rehks”) letter; An ITU-T
standard document with a known black density which fax makers often use to test
transmission speeds of their fax machines. Published transmission speeds are also
based on this document.
ITU-T V.29 and V.27 ter. — A standard set of communication procedures allowing
fax machines to talk to all other units adhering to those standards.
Laser printing — A plain-paper printing system. Toner is attached to a charged
drum and an image is transferred onto plain paper through electrical currents, then
fused with heat and pressure to produce a dry, permanent printout.
LCD — Liquid crystal display. Used on some Muratec units for status displays.
Leased line — See Private line.
Load number — A number assigned to telecommunications equipment used in
Canada; designed to help prevent overloading on a telephone circuit. See also
Ringer equivalence number.
Location ID — See Station ID.
lpi — Lines per inch. The way fax image resolution is measured. (For example, see
Normal resolution.)
MH — Modified Huffman, the standard ITU-T Group 3 data compression method. A
one-dimensional coding scheme that compresses data in a horizontal direction only.
A feature of all Muratec fax machines, MH assures transmissions faster than one
page per minute when communicating with other Group 3 units, regardless of manufacturer. See also MR, MMR, MSE, SMSE.
Modem — Modulator-demodulator. A device that converts digital data, like information from a fax machine, into an analog signal for transmission over ordinary
telephone lines. A modem is included in a fax machine and allows it to be connected
directly to a PSTN telephone line.
MR — Modified Read, an ITU-T Group 3 standard data compression method. A twodimensional coding scheme that compresses data in both horizontal and vertical
directions and allows for faster transmission when communicating with other
Group 3 units, regardless of manufacturer. See also MH, MMR, MSE, SMSE.
MMR — Modified Modified Read, an ITU-T Group 3 standard data compression
method. A two-dimensional coding scheme that compresses data in both horizontal
and vertical directions and allows for faster transmission when communcating with
other Group 3 units, regardless of manufacturer. See also MH, MR, MSE, SMSE.
Monitor — A speaker in most Muratec fax machines which allows the user to hear
the dialing process. This is not a speakerphone, because it has no microphone for
speaking to the person being called. For regular two-way voice communication,
users must use the optional handset. See also On-hook dialing.
MSE, SMSE — Muratec’s proprietary data compression methods, allowing a Muratecmanufactured fax machine to transmit more quickly when communicating with
another Muratec-manufactured unit. MSE and SMSE are features on many Muratec
fax machines. See also MH, MR, MMR.
Just in case …
Normal resolution — Shown as “norm”; 203H × 98V lpi. The default resolution
mode for all Muratec fax machines.
One-touch dialing — Allows the fax user to store frequently used fax numbers for
dialing with the touch of one key. See also Autodialing and Speed-dialing.
On-hook dialing — Dialing numbers by using the keypad on the fax unit without
lifting a handset. On most Muratec fax models, the user can do this either silently
or by using the monitor. See also Monitor.
Original document size — The largest (or smallest) document that can be fed
safely through a fax machine.
Paper sizes — All are width × length:
Letter-sized = 8.5″ × 11.0″
Legal-sized = 8.5″ × 14.0″
A5 = 5.8″ × 8.3″
A4 = 8.3″ × 11.7″
A3 = 11.7″ × 16.5″
B5 = 7.2″ × 10.1″
B4 = 10.1″ × 17.0″
B3 = 14.3″ × 20.3″
Passcode — A four-digit code-number. On your fax machine, the protection passcode lets the user limit access to fax operations, as well as certain settings and even
documents readied for polling (in the case of polling, only calling machines whose
users enter the proper passcode will be able to poll the document.)
PBX (or PABX) — Private branch exchange; privately-owned telephone equipment
serving a particular building, business or area. Many PBX systems use digital transmission lines which, unlike more common PSTN lines, are not compatible with fax
machine use. The user should not connect a fax unit to a PBX without first checking
with the system manufacturer or service representative.
Polling — Automatic transmission to a calling remote fax, or reception of a document from a remote fax set for this operation. Polling is convenient whenever a
central unit must receive information from one or several remote faxes. The caller
bears all telephone charges and prevents several remote units from calling at the
same time. See also Secure polling.
Private line — (Or leased line.) A service offered by many telephone systems; provides an exclusive phone circuit between two geographic points. A Muratec fax does
not require a private line. See also PSTN.
Proprietary — Non-standard. In fax, refers to a fax feature which works only in
communications between fax machines that are the same brand.
PSTN — Public switched telephone network; the most common type of telephone
lines and service in use, in contrast to private or leased lines. A Muratec fax provides fast, reliable data transmission over a PSTN line, and does not need a special or
dedicated telephone line. See also Private line.
Receiver ID — See Station ID.
Redialing — The dialing again, either manually or automatically controlled, of the
most recently dialed fax or phone number. Automatic redialing follows an unsuccessful dialing attempt and can be done manually or automatically.
Relay broadcasting — Lets some Muratec fax machines store a document in
internal memory, transmit the document to the memory of a remote “hub” fax and
then instruct that unit to relay (re-transmit) the document to each fax in a call
group in the “hub” unit. This feature speeds extremely high-volume fax communication and allows a single command to initiate document transmission to hundreds of
preprogrammed fax locations. It also saves phone charges for the originating
machine. Your machine can initiate a relay broadcast.
Remote fax machine — The machine on the other “end” of a fax communication.
REN — See Ringer equivalence number.
Resolution — The resolution of documents transmitted or copied by fax machines
is measured by the number of horizontal (H) and vertical (V) lines per inch (lpi) the
unit can print. A Muratec unit may offer one or more of these resolution levels:
Normal
203H × 98V lpi
Fine
203H × 196V lpi
Superfine
203H × 392V lpi
Some Muratec units also offer grayscale transmission (see also Grayscale) for accurate reproduction of photographs and other shaded originals.
Ringer equivalence number — Also called REN. A number assigned to telecommunications equipment used in the United States; designed to prevent overloading
on a telephone circuit. See also Load number.
Scanning width — See Effective scanning width.
SecureMail — Allows a Muratec fax user to send a document to or or receive one
into (usually something confidential) an “electronic mail box.” The transmission is
protected at the receiving Muratec fax by an access code; the receiving fax prints
the document only when an authorized user enters the code.
Secure polling — Polling in which preset passcodes are checked between two
machines before polling is allowed to take place.
Speed-dialing — Allows the fax user to store frequently used fax numbers for dialing with the touch of three keys — an identifier key (either * or #) and then a
three-digit code — for each number. See also Autodialing and One-touch dialing.
Station ID — (Also called Location ID or Receiver ID.) An autodialer feature which
lets the fax user enter a descriptive name to correspond with the number in an
autodialer entry. For example, rather than entering only 1-972-555-3465, the user
can enter that number and a name, such as Dallas Branch Office. (Many Muratec
models with this feature allow entry of both upper-case and lower-case letters, for
greater ease of reading.)
Subscriber ID — A fax machine’s telephone number, as identified by a user setting. See TTI.
Superfine resolution — 203H × 392V lpi. Your Muratec fax machine’s superfine
transmission mode is Group-3-compatible, not the more limited proprietary version.
3.17
Just in case …
TCR — Transmit confirmation report; this provides proof that your Muratec fax did
send the document you set for transmission. Printed after transmission, the TCR
also identifies the telephone number to which the fax sent the document, plus the
actual time of transmission and how many pages the unit transmitted.
Thermal (paper) printing — A thermal head heats chemically treated, thermally
sensitive paper in patterns conforming to the image the machine has scanned, creating a printed image. Thermal paper’s tendency to discolor and fade, in addition to
its curliness and the usual difficulty in writing on it, have made this method considerably less popular than plain-paper fax printing — particularly as plain-paper fax
machines have dropped sharply in price.
TTI — Transmit terminal identifier. A user-programmable line of information sent
automatically with every page a fax machine sends; it appears at the top of each
page printed by the receiving unit.
Transmission speed — How fast a fax machine is sending a fax document. This
speed depends on the modem speed of each unit, the resolution setting, the content
of the document, the encoding technique and the condition of the phone line (clean,
noisy, etc.) Any change in any one of these five conditions will affect the speed,
sometimes significantly.
White-line skip — A technique used to speed up fax transmission by bypassing
redundant areas, such as white space.

Telephone company procedures
The goal of the telephone company is to provide you with the best service it can. In order to do this, it may occasionally
have to make changes in its equipment, operations or procedures. If these changes might affect your service or the operation of your equipment, the telephone company will give you notice, in writing, to allow you to make any changes
necessary to maintain uninterrupted service.
If you have any questions about your telephone line, such as how many pieces of equipment you can connect to it, the
telephone company will provide this information upon request.
In certain circumstances, it may be necessary for the telephone company to request information from you about the
equipment which you have connected to your telephone line. Upon request of the telephone company, provide the FCC
registration number and the Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) of the equipment which is connected to your line. Both
of these numbers are listed on the equipment label attached to your fax machine.
The sum of all RENS on your telephone line should be fewer than five (5) in order to assure proper service from the telephone company. Sometimes, a sum of five (5) may not be usable on a given telephone line.
Note:
This equipment is hearing-aid-compatible (HAC).
Notice: The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 makes it unlawful for any person to use a computer or other
electronic device to send any message via a telephone fax machine unless such message clearly contains,
either in a margin at the top or bottom of each transmitted page or on the first page of the transmission, the
date and time it was sent and an identification of the business or other identity, or other individual sending
the message and the telephone number of the sending machine or such business, entity or individual. For
instructions on programming this information (the “TTI”) into your fax machine, see pages 1.12–1.14.
Type of service
Your fax is designed for use on standard-device telephone lines. The fax connects to the telephone line with a standard
line called the USOC RJ-11. Connection to telephone-company-provided coin service (central-office-implemented systems).
Connection to party line service is subject to State tariffs.
