Welcome to your Muratec fax machine!
We know you want to use your machine now, without first having to
climb over a mountain of jargon.
So we’ve divided these 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.
• 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 your machine 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.
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. It’s probably a good idea for you to copy
this down before you set up your machine.
Use the blank at the bottom of this column. IC and ID
Note: The IC label and ID label, required by
government regulations, do not contain serial number information.

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. That’s up to you. It can be text,
a photograph or even your child’s latest drawing!

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 be your regular phone number — just add an optional handset
to your fax. Or you can dedicate a phone number to your fax, letting you use one
number just for ordinary voice calls and one just for fax.

What are resolution and grayscale?
Just as cars are measured by engine size, and stereo systems are measured by
watts per channel, so 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). An international agency has defined three specific levels of resolution:
• Normal (203 × 98 vertical lpi)
• Fine (203 × 196 lpi)
• Superfine (203 × 392 lpi).
Similarly, one can judge a fax transmission by its number of grayscale levels, or
shades of gray — really, halftones such as you might see in a newspaper photo. 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-level grayscale.
So why not always set your fax machine for superfine,
or for grayscale?
Because these settings make your machine send more information, making transmissions last longer and (on long-distance calls) driving up your phone bills. That’s
why, as you’ll see, we’ve made it easy for you to set your fax machine for the most
efficient, and truest, transmission of the types of documents you send!

Here’s a brief description of the keys on your fax machine and what they do, as well
as a look at your machine’s indicator lights and their meanings.
Important: Some of the functions we’ll mention here are covered in the “Beyond
the Basics” section.

3
MEMORY RECEIVE light — If glowing, indicates your fax machine is receiving
an incoming fax document into the machine’s electronic memory.
COMMUNICATION light — If glowing, advises you the fax machine is communicating with another machine.
light — If glowing, indicates a problem has occurred during fax communication, printing or scanning. (It’s also accompanied by several beeps
immediately after the problem occurs.) The light stays lit until the machine
prints a Check Message report.
ALARM
4
AUTO ANSWER — Selects which mode your fax machine uses to handle incoming calls: answering automatically as a fax machine (auto-answer mode) or
waiting for the user to pick up an optional, connected handset (manualanswer mode). The AUTO ANSWER light next to this key will glow when
auto-answer mode is the current choice.
5
MEMORY TRANSMIT — Selects which transmission mode your fax machine uses,
whether from memory or from the document feeder. If the MEMORY TRANSMIT
light next to this key is glowing, your machine will scan documents into memory before trying to send them. Otherwise, your fax machine will send
straight from the feeder, which is slower and also prevents others in your
office from using the fax until your communication is absolutely complete.

You’re in control!
We’ve worked hard to make sure your fax machine is easy for you to use. Let’s make
sure there’s no confusion about how to operate it. Below are simple operating tips:
To press: 0 (zero), 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, # or *
Use:
The numeric keypad.
Tip:
At no other time within this manual will we refer to the letters printed
below the numeric keys and their uses (such as accessing abc by pressing
the 2 key.) These letters are there only for your convenience in using your
fax machine as a telephone.
To press: A, B, C, D or any other letter key
Use:
The one-touch key by that name.
Tip:
Please don’t confuse the zero (0) with the letter O.
Here’s an example. If we say “press PROGRAM, 7, ENTER, 0, 8, ENTER” …
… you’d press PROGRAM
… then 7
… then ENTER
… then 0 (the numeric key zero)
… then 8
… and then, finally ENTER
Important: Although our example above includes commas, do not enter them into
the fax machine. Those characters appear in our instructions to separate one number from the other, and are not intended for actual entry
by using your control panel.
There is a function (broadcasting) which requires the entry of
commas, but there is a special way to enter them. We will explain this
process when the time comes.
— Chooses from among five fax options: delayed transmission,
relay broadcast, polling, F-code transmission or F-code polling.
PROGRAM — Any function can be started by first pressing this key and then
entering the function number.
— Helps you send a broadcast fax (sending the same document to
more than one location).
BROADCAST
— When a document is in the document feeder, press this key to
toggle among normal, dark or light contrast settings.
CONTRAST
RESOLUTION — When a document is in the document feeder, press this key to
toggle among the three resolution modes and the halftone (grayscale) mode.

Getting started
Setting up
Pick an installation spot before going ahead
Install the printing supplies
Where should you install your fax machine? The location should be:
• Clean — Dust buildup can damage your machine. (Still, do not use a cover! See
next item.)
• In the open — Allow at least 12″ of clearance around your machine. Be sure
that you 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 (such as from a water fountain) could reach your fax machine.
• Level, and vibration-free.
• Near a phone jack — Your fax machine uses a standard (“modular”) telephone
jack, also known as an RJ-11.
• Near an AC power outlet — The AC power cord is about 5′ long when stretched
to its limit (and that’s not the way to handle a power cord).
Speaking of which …
Your fax machine prints incoming faxes and copies with a laser print engine. The
engine requires two types of printing supplies (sometimes also called consumables):
• The drum cartridge — It yields 20,000 normal letter-sized printouts (see “Specifications,” page AI.1). By “normal,” we’re referring to the amount of text and/or
graphics on each page. This is based on an industry-standard test document.
• The toner cartridge — It yields 5,500 “normal”, letter-sized printouts (see
“Specifications,” page AI.1).
Note: The toner cartridge included with your machine is a starter cartridge which
yields 3,600 printouts (see “Specifications,” page AI.1). Please purchase
regular, full-yield toner cartridges from your authorized Muratec dealer.
Here’s how to install these supplies.
1
Swing open the printer
cover by pressing the
printer cover release.
2
Unpack the drum cartridge from its box.
3
Put the drum cartridge into the printer
by aligning the cartridge’s protrusions
with the slits inside the printer frame.
Powerful tips
• Use a standard three-pronged 120 VAC outlet.
• Make sure the outlet isn’t controlled by a wall switch.
If it is, you’ll 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 “draw-downs”
(temporary drops in the power available for other equipment on
the circuit) which could damage your fax machine.
• Use an electrical surge suppressor, preferably one which guards both telephone and electrical lines. This device helps to shield your fax machine from
damaging high-voltage electrical surges.

Important: Shield the drum cartridge from light, especially strong
light. Later, if you have to remove the cartridge from the fax,
immediately wrap it in a thick cloth to protect it from light.
Important: You must also reset the
drum counter. See “When
you install a new drum
cartridge …” (page 1.7).
Getting started
Loading paper
4
Unpack the toner cartridge from its carton.
Then, holding the toner cartridge with both
hands, shake it well as shown (note the arrows).
Your fax machine can hold up to 150 sheets of plain paper in the multipurpose tray,
and your machine will use it to print received faxes and make copies. You can also
attach an optional paper cassette, which holds up to 500 additional sheets of plain
paper. Contact your authorized Muratec dealer for more information on the optional
paper cassette.
5
Install the toner cartridge in the printer, making sure that the cartridge’s
four pins (two each at the front and rear sides) fit in the slits inside the
printer frame.
The following instructions tell you how to load the paper correctly, which will help
to prevent paper jams and other problems.
Loading the multipurpose tray
You may use either letter- or legal-sized paper in the multipurpose tray, but not
both at the same time. Do not mix paper sizes in one tray.
1
6
Swing the printer cover back down. Push
down on a portion of the cover to lock the
cover into its normal position.
Note: The fax machine will not work if the
cover isn’t closed properly.
When you install a new drum cartridge
Important: Use this setting only when you are installing a new drum cartridge.
Your fax machine keeps track of how many pages go through the drum cartridge to
let you know when the drum needs to be replaced. So, whenever you install a new
drum cartridge, you must “notify” the machine by resetting the drum counter.
(Before resetting it the very first time, you’ll have to finish installing the machine
and then turn it on [see page 1.8].) Here’s how to reset the drum counter:
1
Adjust the multipurpose tray for the
length of paper you plan to load. Pull
slightly upward on the paper-length
guide in the tray, then slide the
guide to the slot (either LTR or LGL)
for the paper size you’ll be loading.
Paper-width guide
Paper-length guide
Important: You must set your
machine to recognize
the size of paper
you’ve loaded (see
page 1.8 for details).
2
3
Slightly “fan” the paper you will be loading, to help ensure smooth feeding.
Insert up to 150 sheets of paper into the tray. Make sure the paper-length
guide and the paper width guide now fit against the paper’s edges.
Important: To avoid paper jams, do not refill this tray without first removing all of the paper in it. Do not add sheets to an already-loaded
stack.

Setting the paper size for the multipurpose tray
The multipurpose tray can hold either letter- or legal-sized paper for your machine.
All you have to do is tell the machine which size the tray is using.
Important: If you use a different size from the size you set here, the machine
won’t print. Be sure to change this setting whenever you load another
paper size.
Note: The optional paper cassette uses only letter-sized paper.
1
Plug one end of the telephone line
cord into the LINE jack on the
machine’s rear side. Plug the other
end of the cord into a standard telephone wall jack, just as you would
plug in a phone.
Note: If you have purchased an
optional handset, do not confuse its curled handset cord with the
uncurled telephone line cord.
Note: We’ll get to the HANDSET and EXT.TEL jacks shortly (see page 1.9).
2
Plug the non-pronged end of the AC power cord
into the AC power cord jack on the left side of the

Attaching a second phone
Want to attach a second phone (even a cordless model!) to your fax machine, so they
can share the same phone jack? No problem.
Before we go further, let’s explain the idea. You’re plugging the second phone’s
phone line into your fax machine’s EXT. TEL jack, not the wall phone jack. In such a
setup, only your fax machine connects to the wall. The second phone receives phone
signals through your fax machine.
Now, let’s proceed …
1
If your second phone is already plugged into a wall phone jack, disconnect it
from that jack, at the jack. Hold onto the phone plug; you’ll need it in step 2.
Note: If your telephone is a model which also requires AC power, as is true
for the base of a cordless phone, don’t unplug it from its AC power
jack!
2
Using the plug mentioned in
step 1, plug the phone cable
from your second phone into
the EXT.TEL jack on the rear of
your fax machine.
For information on how to use a connected second phone with your fax machine, see
“Receiving faxes,” beginning on page 1.17.
Attaching an optional handset
If you purchase an optional handset for your fax machine, it comes with installation
instructions. However, here is a summary of how to attach the handset.
Important: Do not connect the handset directly to a telephone wall jack. Connect
the handset only to your fax machine as the instructions describe.
1
Using a small Phillips-head screwdriver, attach the handset cradle to the side
of your fax machine using the screws included with the cradle.
2
3
Plug one end of the handset cord (it’s curled) into the
HANDSET jack on the rear of your fax machine.
4
Place the telephone handset onto the handset cradle. The cradle will press
the handset’s “flash” button, hanging up the handset.
Plug the other end of the handset cord into the jack on the handset. If connected to a phone line, your fax machine is now “off-hook.”
Note: The handset has a small “flash” button which you can press while
holding the handset, putting the fax machine back “on-hook” until you
can hang up the handset properly in step 4.
Installation complete!
Now, see how our EasyStart feature will have
you up and running within minutes.
1.9
Getting started
EasyStart
Your Muratec fax machine comes with EasyStart. It guides you in entering the
bare-bones settings required for normal operation — so it’s easy for you to start
using your machine quickly. (You can enter other settings later or change settings.
We’ll explain in “Beyond the basics,” beginning on page 2.1.)
2
Important: At the end of EasyStart, your machine will print a list of its settings.
So first, please be sure you’ve correctly installed your machine and
loaded recording paper into it (see “Setting up,” beginning on page 1.6).
Clearing settings before beginning
Before using EasyStart, clear your machine’s built-in user data memory, which
stores settings. This insures the memory will hold only your settings.
Important: After you use EasyStart, please do not clear the memory again unless
an authorized technician asks you to do so.
To clear the machine’s memory:
1
Press PROGRAM, *, 2. The LCD now asks whether you’re sure about clearing
the memory:

Sending faxes
Some guidelines
How big — and small — your pages can be
While you’ll probably be sending normal-sized documents most of the time, you can
fax a piece of paper as small as a notepad sheet or one nearly 3 feet long!
To be precise, the acceptable dimensions (width × length) are:
SINGLE-SHEET TRANSMISSION
MULTIPLE-SHEET TRANSMISSION
Maximum: 11.0″ × 35.4″
Maximum: 10.1″ × 14.4″
Minimum:
5.8″ × 4.1″
Minimum:
5.8″ × 4.1″
Reviewing Contrast:
The rightmost item appearing on the LCD (when there’s a document in the feeder) is
the contrast setting. You have three choices:
• Normal (“NORM” on the control panel) — Suited to most documents.
• Light — Lightens up overly dark, “muddy” original documents.
• Dark — Darkens weak, “washed-out” images.
Note: Until you become accustomed to using the Light and Dark settings, you
might tend to confuse them. Just remember what we say above — “Light
lightens” and “Dark darkens” — to keep it straight!
Things not to put in your fax
Entering a pause character when dialing
To avoid paper jams and damage to your machine, please don’t 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
Your fax machine provides special dialing characters which you may find useful.
We’ll discuss most of them later (see page 2.8), but you may need to know now
about the pause character. Some long-distance systems require dialing pauses, and
pauses can be useful also when you’re dialing through special telephone exchanges.
To insert a pause character, just press REDIAL/PAUSE (after you’ve dialed at least one
other character). -/ (the pause character) will appear on the display.
Each pause you enter lasts for a factory-set five seconds (see “Changing the pause
length,” next page, for how 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.
Some thoughts on resolution, grayscale and contrast
Reviewing resolution and grayscale:
• Normal resolution (“NORM” on the control panel) is suitable for most typed documents and simple drawings.
• Fine resolution (“FINE” on the control panel) is ideal for maps, moderately complicated drawings, floorplans or handwritten documents.
• Superfine resolution (“S-FINE” on the control panel; “S Fine” on the LCD) reproduces the detail of extremely complicated drawings or line art.
• Grayscale mode (“HALFTONE” on the control panel; “Gray” on the LCD) captures
shades in photos and drawings.
Note: If you send a fax in superfine, certain fax models (especially older, nonMuratec models) will receive it only in fine mode. However, you can send a
fax in grayscale mode to virtually any fax machine currently in use.
1.12
Important: Each pause uses two of the characters you’re allowed in a number.
Getting started
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 is satisfactory when
you use it with your phone system, do not make this change. But, if you must:

How to insert a document
1
Adjust the document guides — by sliding either of them to the left or right —
to fit the page (s) you’ll be faxing. Your fax machine’s automatic document
feeder will hold up to 30 pages.
Note: Your machine’s scanning width is 8.2″. When you insert a letter-sized
document, your machine scans the center 8.2″ and sends it unreduced
(see pages 2.3–2.4 for more on reduction). This means that there will
be a 0.15″ margin on each side of the page that your fax machine will
not scan.
2
If you’re sending a multi-page document, “fan”
the pages slightly. The bottom sheet should
extend just slightly from the others.
3
Insert the document face up. The fax machine
will “grab” the first page of the document and
position it for faxing. (If need be, readjust the
document guides for the best fit.)
Press PROGRAM, J, 0, 5, ENTER.

Press ENTER to save the setting.
Potential problems with call-waiting and voice mail
Telephone call-waiting signals can stop fax transmission and reception. And, of
course, 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, please consult your telephone company for
information on how you can temporarily disable call-waiting or voice mail while
using the fax machine.
Adjusting the machine for larger documents
If you’re using larger documents, you can adjust the document hopper and the document tray. Just flip the top up or down, as appropriate for your documents’ sizes.
The LCD will now show the scanning width setting and the amount of memory available:
Document Ready
A4
Memory100%
Speaking of memory . . .
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 2.19–2.20) 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.
1.13
Getting started
Note: Whether you decide to send your documents from memory or through the
document feeder, you can override that choice one transmission at a time by
pressing MEMORY TRANSMIT before you send your document. After completing the communication, your fax will return to the default setting.
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
Press PROGRAM, J, 1, 3, ENTER.

Otherwise, press MEMORY TRANSMIT once to “toggle” memory transmission.
Now, everything is up to the machines — yours and the one you’re dialing.
• If you have 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.
Important: If you wish to cancel a transmission while it is in progress, you
will need to use the Review Commands function. See “An introduction to Review Commands,” page 1.16.

1
Press START.
Note: The more “stuff” (or black coverage, to use the fax term) your machine
“sees” on a page, the more slowly the page will feed through as the fax
scans it — especially when you transmit in non-memory mode. Even
if the page itself 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.

Sending a fax with on-hook dialing or a handset
If the call doesn’t go through — redialing
You also can fax a document by dialing using either the monitor speaker (called “onhook” dialing) or the optional handset.
If your call fails, and you dialed without using either the monitor speaker or an
optional handset, your machine will automatically redial the fax call you just tried.
While in this Auto Redial mode, the machine can receive faxes and make as many as 50
fax transmissions.
In this Auto Redial mode, your fax automatically redials the number every few minutes (See “Making redial settings,” next page) until one of the following happens:
• It reaches the remote fax machine.
• It has automatically redialed the number for the last try (again, see “Making

Making redial settings
An introduction to Review Commands
It’s up to you how many times the fax redials a number and how long it waits between
redials (that length of time between calls is the redial interval). Here’s how to program
the redial settings:
To cancel either a transmission in progress, an automatic redial or a delayed command, you’ll use the Review Commands function. First, a short explanation . . .
• Because your fax machine can store multiple commands in memory, it keeps
track of each command by assigning it a command number, like “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 (review)
each command currently in your machine’s memory but also to delete a command if
you decide not to send the document.

Receiving faxes
Different ways to get the job done
Tel Ready mode — when Auto Answer is off
Reception modes
Use it if:
Your fax machine has two different reception modes — Tel Ready and 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 both reception modes
In either reception mode, you can always answer calls manually if you have an
optional handset installed. Just pick it up, as you would if using a normal phone.
• You intend to use the same line for both fax and phone calls
and
• On that line, you’re using at least one other phone which is not
connected to your fax machine
and
• You have installed an optional handset on 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
both reception modes” (this page, left column).
To select Tel Ready:
If you hear someone speaking to you, use your
optional handset to have a normal phone call.
If you hear distinctive fax tones (“beep — beep
— beep — beep”), press START and hang up the
optional 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
for on-hook dialing only.

It’s easy to make the switch
To toggle between Tel Ready and Fax Ready (see page 1.18), turn off Auto Answer.
(To maintain Tel Ready as your default mode, just leave Auto Answer off.)
Answering fax calls using another phone, not the fax machine
If you have one phone line ringing to several phones in your office and you have an
optional handset attached to your fax, there’s no need to run to the fax machine to
answer every call. If you happen to answer a fax call while you’re at another extension within the same office, put the handset down, but don’t hang up. Walk to the
fax machine and pick up the optional handset. Then press START.
After you press START, you must hang up both the fax machine’s handset and the
second telephone’s handset. Because remote fax machines will wait several seconds
to hear reception tones from your unit, you have about 30 seconds to walk to your
fax, pick up the handset, and press START.

Check Tray Paper
Of course, your fax machine cannot print fax messages or copies without paper.
However …
Receiving when out of paper
If your machine runs out of paper while you’re away, it will store up to 50 fax receptions (see the note, below) in its memory. This is called out-of-paper reception. Then,
when you refill the paper supply, the fax machine will print the stored messages
automatically. This is a useful feature, especially for overnight and weekend sessions.
Note: How many pages (not receptions) your fax machine can store for out-ofpaper reception will vary. It depends on your machine’s memory capacity
and it also depends on the types of documents being sent to your machine
and the documents’ resolution settings. (See Specifications, page AI.1)

Getting started
Making copies
One of the best things about your fax machine is that it doubles as a copier. This
makes it easy for you to keep copies of your important documents, such as insurance forms, receipts and letters.
To make a copy with your fax machine:
1
Prepare the document just as you
would for a fax transmission.
Remember:
• There are certain types of documents you never should insert into
your fax machine. (You might wish
to review “Things not to put in your
fax,” page 1.12.)
• The document can be up to 30 pages
in length.
• If you’re copying a multi-page document, “fan” the pages so that the
bottom page extends just slightly
from the rest.
• Adjust your machine’s document
guides to fit the document.
2
Insert the document face up. (If necessary, re-adjust the document guides for
a correct fit.)

• Primary transmission mode — Gives you four ways to send faxes, either one
of the three resolution modes — normal, fine or superfine (“S Fine” on the LCD)
— or in grayscale mode (“Gray”).
• 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, ENTER. The LCD asks which resolution you select:
Primary:
Normal
Program/Enter
If the setting you see is acceptable, skip to step 3.
Otherwise, proceed to step 2.

To change the setting, press PROGRAM repeatedly until your chosen mode
appears. In this example, we’ve chosen fine resolution.
Primary:

Press ENTER to save the setting.
Of course, you always can change the resolution and contrast before sending.
To adjust the resolution and contrast:
• Press RESOLUTION to change the resolution.
• Press CONTRAST to change the contrast.
Beyond the basics
Using CODE to enter characters
Making settings for printing faxes
Certain settings give you a chance to enter some kind of identifying name. As
explained earlier (page 1.11), you can do this with the one-touch keys. But you may
also use the CODE key in combination with other keys to produce a wide variety of
characters, as well as regular letters and numbers. Here’s how to do it:
You can set two parameters for printing received fax messages:
• Print reduction rate
• Reduction margin
You set all two in the same operation (see next page), but each deserves its own
brief explanation.

When the machine prompts you to enter a name, press CODE. The display will
change to:

To enter each character, press the indicated keys.
Important: Remember that you also can enter numbers through the
numeric keypad and letters and other non-numeric characters
through the one-touch keys in combination with the U1/ABC,
U2/abc and U3/SYMBOL keys.
Note: If you make a mistake, press CANCEL to erase leftward. Or, if you want
to change just one character in the name, press to move the cursor
leftward, or to move it rightward, to that character and press CANCEL to erase it. Then re-enter until the name is just as you want it.
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 can’t, 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 isn’t 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 letter-sized printed copies.

Print reduction lets you set the machine to reduce a large incoming document to a
size which will fit on your paper. This setting doesn’t affect copies you may make
with your machine. To do this, use the copy reduction function (see page 2.4).
Here are the options for both print reduction and copy reduction settings:
For best results …
Athough it’s convenient, the reduction feature can’t solve every situation.
(Also, 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 size of
paper before receiving a fax (or making a copy) of that size.
Press ENTER to save the name.

Beyond the basics
Reduction margin
Making settings for copying
Your fax machine’s reduction margin is measured in millimeters (mm). We’ll define
it by explaining how it’s used:
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.
You can set three parameters for copying:
• Copy sort/stack — Your fax machine can either sort or stack multiple copies of a
document. If it stacks them, it will make four copies of a two-page document as:
1, 1, 1, 1 — 2, 2, 2, 2. If it sorts them, it will make four copies of the same twopage documents as: 1, 2 — 1, 2 — 1, 2 — 1, 2.
(If the sorting copy is “Off”, the fax machine will stack.)
• Copy reduction rate — Works the same way as the print reduction rate (see page
2.3 for more details).
• Reduction margin — Serves the same purpose as the reduction margin for printing (see earlier information on this page).
You set both in the same operation, as with the printing 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.

Note: The same options, in terms of both reduction settings and reduction margins, are available for copy reduction as for print reduction. (If necessary,
review the preceding discussion, “Making settings for printing faxes,” beginning on page 2.3.) The difference, here, is that you probably are better off
with a setting of 00 on the reduction margin.

Setting ECM
Ever hear static on the line during a phone call? It’s a real nuisance — but, worse, it
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 can’t verify the transmission, the first machine will re-send
as necessary. (Essentially, the sending machine asks, “Did you ‘hear’ that segment?” and the other machine answers either “Yeah; go on” or “No; try it again.”)
Note: While using ECM gives you a better chance of getting a fax document
through a troublesome phone line, it also could slow down the transmission
time — and increasingly so in proportion to how bad the phone line is.
That’s why we let you turn ECM on or off as you require.
Note: Not all fax machines have ECM. If you’ve 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
Setting silent mode
If you and your fax machine share a quiet place, you’ll really appreciate being able to
put the machine into silent mode. This setting mutes the ringer, the alarm and the
key-touch tone.
• Ringer — This mutes the ringer and a special ring alerts you if you receive a
voice call and a call request call.
• Alarm — This mutes the alarm your machine makes when an error has
occurred, the “I’m done!” beep your machine makes after sending or receiving a
fax or making a copy, and the beep your machine makes at one-minute intervals
to remind you your caller is waiting.
• Key-touch tone — This mutes the tones your machine makes when pressing
the button on the control panel.
Note: Let’s say it again — silent mode mutes the ringer as well as the beep and
the key-touch tone. So, if you’re using your fax machine as both a fax and
phone (with the optional handset), you may not wish to use this feature.
Note: Of course, turning on the silent 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.

Setting the transmission confirmation stamp
Printing your settings
You can set your fax machine so that it will automatically place a small stamp mark
on the front of each original document that it successfully scans.
After you have your machine set as you want, have it print a settings list. We recommend this particularly if you’ll be sharing the machine with other users, who
might change the settings for one reason or another.
With this list, you can quickly confirm that all settings are as you want, without
having to go back and check them on the machine. Or, if you do need to undo someone else’s unauthorized (or even authorized) changes, this list guides you in
returning the machine to your preferred settings.
Important: Be sure that this feature is turned off if you are sending original documents you don’t want the fax to stamp.

Press PROGRAM, J, 1, 9, ENTER. The LCD shows your fax’s current setting:
Stamp:

Please refer to the index at the end of these instructions to locate any setting you don’t recognize or understand.
To print the settings list, press PROGRAM, J, 2, 2, ENTER.
Printing a program list
You also can have your machine print a program list. This list gives a brief summary
of the various instructions available on your fax machine, organized in a “program
tree” so you can see which key combinations produce which instructions.
Press ENTER to save the setting.
Setting the language
While English is the language in which your machine initially is set to display messages and print reports, you can set it to “speak” French or Spanish, too! As you give
the order for the machine to change languages, it “rolls” from English to French to
Spanish and then back to English.
To make the change from one language to the next, press PROGRAM, #.
Note: Some settings on the list affect only certain operations we’ll explain later.
Please refer to the index at the end of these instructions to locate any setting you don’t recognize or understand.
To print a program list, press PROGRAM, *, 8. Your machine will print the list.
Note: If you have certain options installed on your machine, the list will be two
pages in length.
¿Qué es? — or, What is it?
If, after making a language change, you’re not sure which language is showing,
press PROGRAM once and decide based on what results on the LCD:

If the language you see is the one you want, press STOP to return to standby mode.
If you want to change languages, press STOP to return to standby mode and then
press PROGRAM, # again to go to the next language in the cycle.

Beyond the basics
Autodialer
Your fax machine’s autodialer is one of its most versatile features. It stores your
most frequently called phone and fax numbers for instant recall so you don’t have to
remember them. Now, it’s easy to dial even the most complicated international
calls!
Autodialer basics
How do you autodial?
There are two kinds of autodialer numbers. The difference between the two is how
you access them:
• One-touch — Pressing one of the keys, marked A–Z and U1–U4, on the right side
of the control panel.
• Speed-dial — Pressing SPEED DIAL/TEL INDEX followed by a three-digit identifier,
from 001 to 100.
How big is the vault?
How many numbers can your fax store? A total of 130 — up to 30 one-touch numbers and up to 100 speed-dial numbers.
Which number is which?
Your fax machine’s autodialer will hold more than just fax numbers: you can store
Mom’s phone number along with your warehouse’s fax number.
How? Because, when you use the autodialer to dial a number, the fax checks to see
whether there’s a document in the feeder. If there is, the machine dials as a fax
machine (i. e., dials while sending fax tones). If there isn’t, it dials as a phone.
Special dialing characters
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
number into its various parts — in this example, a 9 for outside-line access, a 1 for
long-distance access, the area code and the phone number.
Imagine how much more important this can be if you also have to use special longdistance access codes, country codes for international calling, etc.
Also, certain calls require special symbols besides just numerals to get through. If
you make calls to other countries — or just have your fax machine on an unusual
phone system — you’ll 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. Here’s a
brief description of these characters, as well as how you can put them in the numbers you store in the autodialer:
Char. What it does
–
/
!
Your machine also features a built-in EasyDial directory (see page 2.14). This lets
you enter your fax/phone numbers along with descriptive names. (Your machine
calls this name a Location ID.) The autodialer sorts these listings alphabetically so,
with EasyDial, you can look them up by name as if you were using a phone book!
As you store the numbers — we’ll get to that shortly — you’ll see how to enter the
names so you can use this extremely handy feature.

DTMF tone. Do not use on a tone line.

If A is the key you want to set, skip to step 3. (However, our sample displays
from here on will say “B” rather than “A.”)
Press the one-touch key in which you want to store a number or change a previously stored number. Here, we’ve selected B and the LCD shows either:
Important: As in EasyStart, you enter letters and other non-numeric characters through the one-touch keys.

or B :9-1-555-987-6543
B :Name
_
:Upper
If you change your mind and wish to select a different one-touch key, just
press that key before going on step 4.
The word “Upper” means the machine is currently set for entering only
upper-case letters. If you press R, the machine will see it as an R (not an r).
Press ENTER. Depending on whether you already have a number entered for
this one-touch number, the LCD now shows either:
To change it so that pressing a one-touch key will produce a lower-case letter
rather than an upper-case letter, press U2/abc. The display will change to:
B :Fax Number

or S. W. Region Office_
A number’s Location ID may be up to 16 characters in length. You enter the
Location ID the same way you entered your fax name during EasyStart. We’ll
review the process, here. (If you’re changing a previously entered Location ID,
see the note at the end of this step.)

may want to review “Special dialing characters,” page 2.8.) The number can
be up to 40 characters in length:

9-1-5559292039_
Your display can show only 20 characters at a time. To view characters beyond
those 20 (such as with an international long-distance number), press to
scroll leftward or to scroll rightward.
Note: If you make a mistake or want to erase characters entered in a previous setting, press CANCEL to erase leftward. Or, if you want to change
just one character in the number, press to move the cursor leftward,
or to move it rightward, to that character and press CANCEL to
erase it. Then re-enter until the number is just as you want it.
B :Name

:Lower
This means pressing one-touch keys will enter lower-case letters: pressing R
will produce an r (not an R) on the display.
To switch back for upper-case entries, press U1/ABC.
To enter spaces, punctuation and symbols, press U3/SYMBOL. This lets you
enter the blue characters shown on the one-touch keypad.
To enter a wide variety of characters, use the CODE function. (Review the
explanation on page 2.3.) The vast majority of the time, you will probably find
the ABC, abc and SYMBOL keys to be sufficient.
Note: If you make a mistake or want to erase characters entered in a previous setting, press CANCEL to erase leftward. Or, if you want to change
just one character in the name, press to move the cursor leftward,
or to move it rightward, to that character and press CANCEL to
erase it. Then re-enter until the name is just as you want it.

If you do want to enter this one-touch number, go back to step 4.
One-touch fax dialing
Now that you’ve stored a one-touch number or two, let’s discuss the ease of using
one-touch keys to make calls. You’ll probably use one-touch numbers to dial fax
calls, not voice calls, most of the time. We’ll show you a bit later (this page, right
column) how to dial a one-touch voice call. But, first, here’s how to dial a fax call
using a one-touch number:
1

3
Insert the document.
4
Press the one-touch key in which you’ve stored the number.
Adjust resolution and contrast if necessary.
Toggle between transmission from the feeder or from memory if necessary, by
pressing MEMORY TRANSMIT.
The machine will handle the call from here, although the exact sequence of events
will vary depending upon whether you specified transmission from memory or
transmission from the feeder:
If you specified transmission from memory:
• Your fax machine scans your document into memory first, then dials the other
fax machine.
• The LCD shows the Location ID and the document’s width and resolution settings:
Katz’s Cat Care
A4
Normal
Note: If the number doesn’t have a Location ID, the number appears.
• When the other machine answers, your fax will transmit the document directly
from memory. (To review memory transmission, see pages 1.13–1.14.)
2.10
If you specified transmission from the feeder:
• Your fax machine dials the other fax machine.
• When the other machine answers, your fax feeds the document through its scanner, transmitting as it goes.
• The LCD shows the Location ID and the document’s width and resolution settings:
Katz’s Cat Care
A4
Normal
Note: If the number doesn’t have a Location ID, the number appears.
One-touch phone dialing
To dial a phone call using a one-touch number, you must have an optional handset
attached to your machine. (Contact your authorized Muratec dealer for more information on this optional item.)
Here’s how to make the call:
1
Obtain a dial tone by doing one of the following:
• Lifting the handset
• Press MONITOR/CALL to use the monitor speaker.
2
Press the one-touch key in which you’ve stored the number. As the machine
dials, it will show the number on the LCD:
** Tel Mode
9-555-2842_
**
Note: Remember that your fax machine’s monitor speaker is not a speakerphone;
so, if you dialed by using the monitor speaker, be sure to pick up the handset and speak to the other person when he/she answers!
Note: You also can use this method to dial a fax call when, for some reason, you
want to hear the other fax’s answering fax tones. (Make sure there’s a document in the feeder.) When you do hear those tones, press START to send the
document in the feeder; if you’d lifted the handset, hang it up at this point.
Beyond the basics
Erasing a one-touch number

Using speed-dial numbers
Press PROGRAM, A, 2, ENTER. The LCD shows:
Select One-Touch
A :No Number Stored
Select One-Touch
or A :9-1-555-345-6789
If A is the key you want to erase, skip to step 3. (However, our examples from
here will say “B” rather than “A.”)

As we mentioned before, your fax machine will store up to 100 speed-dial numbers,
designated by three-digit identifier codes from 001 (the first number) through 100.
Important: When entering the identifier code for a speed-dial number, you must
enter leading zeroes, if necessary, to make three digits (e. g., 001 or 027).
Speed-dial number 100 doesn’t require leading zeroes.
Entering or changing a speed-dial number
Important: To erase a number, see “Erasing a speed-dial number” (page 2.13).

The machine now is prompting you for a name — a Location ID, remember? —
so you’ll be able to find it easily in the EasyDial directory (see page 2.14).
If you do not wish to enter or change this number’s Location ID, skip to step 9.
If you do wish to enter or change this number’s Location ID, proceed to step 8.

Note: If you make a mistake or want to erase characters entered in a previous setting, press CANCEL to erase leftward. Or, if you want to change
just one character in the name, press to move the cursor leftward,
or to move it rightward, to that character and press CANCEL to
erase it. Then re-enter until the name is just as you want it.
A number’s Location ID may be up to 16 characters in length. You enter the
Location ID the same way you entered your fax name during EasyStart. We’ll
review the process, here. (If you’re changing a previously entered Location ID,
see the note at the end of this step.)
Important: As in EasyStart, you enter letters and other non-numeric characters through using the one-touch keys.

Press SPEED DIAL/TEL INDEX. The LCD will show:
:Upper
The word “Upper” means the machine is currently set for entering only
upper-case letters. If you press R, the machine will see it as an R (not an r).
:Lower
This means pressing one-touch keys will enter lower-case letters: pressing R
will produce an r (not an R) on the display.
To switch back for upper-case entries, press U1/ABC.
To enter spaces, punctuation and symbols, press U3/SYMBOL. This lets you
enter the blue characters shown on the one-touch keypad.
To enter a wide variety of characters, use the CODE function. (Review the
explanation on page 2.3.) Most of the time, you will probably find the ABC,

Press START.
The machine will handle the call from here. The sequence will vary depending upon
whether you specified transmission from memory or transmission from the feeder.
Beyond the basics
If you specified transmission from memory:
• Your fax scans your document into memory first, then dials the other machine.
• The LCD shows the Location ID and the document’s width and resolution settings:
Shipping & Receiving

Note: If the speed-dial number doesn’t have a Location ID, the number appears.
• When the other machine answers, your fax will transmit the document directly
from memory. (To review memory transmission, see pages 1.13–1.14.)
If you specified transmission from the feeder:
• Your fax machine dials the other fax machine.
• When the other machine answers, your fax feeds the document through its scanner, transmitting as it goes.
• The LCD shows the Location ID and the document’s width and resolution settings:
Note: You also can use this method to dial a fax call when, for some reason, you
want to hear the other fax machine’s answering fax tones. (Make sure
there’s a document in the feeder.) When you do hear those tones over either
your handset or the monitor speaker, press START to send the document in
the feeder. If you’re using your handset, hang it up at this point.

Beyond the basics
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, numbers and, finally, symbols.
1
If you want to use EasyDial to make a regular phone call, make sure there’s
no document in the feeder and then skip to step 4.
If you want to use EasyDial to send a fax, insert the document.

Adjust resolution and contrast if necessary.
If you want to toggle between transmission from memory and transmission
from the feeder, press MEMORY TRANSMIT.
Press SPEED DIAL/TEL INDEX twice. The LCD shows the alphabetically first listing
in your fax machine’s EasyDial directory:
Telephone Index [A]
ABC Company
:A
Note: If your machine is currently holding any caller-IDs, it will show the
caller-ID directory (see pagea 2.26-2.27) on the LCD.
If you wish to avoid the caller-ID directory, press any key of 2, 4, 6 or 8
on the numeric keypad.
Note: Here, the [A] indicates this listing begins with its initial in the
alphabet; if it began with a symbol, this would instead be [!]; or, if
it began with a number, this would instead be a [0].
(If this listing is the one you want to dial, skip to step 6.)
5
Scroll through the listings to find the one you want. You do this by pressing
certain keys on the numeric keypad:
• 2 or 8 to select the character set — alphabet, number or symbol — for the
first character of the Location ID.
• 4 or 6 to check different listings within that character set.
Note: The scrolling is “open-ended.” For example, when you run out of listings beginning with alphabet “A”, pressing 4 or 6 automatically moves
you into listings beginning with other characters.
2.14
6
When the LCD is showing the name you want to dial, press START.
• If there is a document in the feeder, your machine will dial a fax call to the
selected autodialer number.
• If there isn’t a document in the feeder, your machine will activate the monitor speaker and dial a regular phone call. (Remember that, to make a
regular phone call from your machine, you must have attached an optional
handset.) At this point, you may either:
— Lift the handset now
or
— Listen to the monitor speaker until you hear the other person answer,
and then lift the handset.
What if an EasyDial call doesn’t go through?
If an EasyDial call fails (for example, because of a busy signal), what happens next
depends upon the kind of call it was.
If it was a fax call …
… Your fax machine automatically redials the number after the redial interval (see
page 1.16). It keeps trying until either of the following occurs first:
• It successfully reaches the other number (and, if it’s a fax call, makes contact
with the machine on the other end).
• It has automatically redialed the number the last try (see page 1.15).
If it was a regular phone call …
… You’ll have to redial manually:

Obtain a dial tone by either lifting the handset or pressing MONITOR/CALL.
Press REDIAL/PAUSE.
Beyond the basics
It’s a great phone, too
As you’ve probably guessed by now, your fax machine is a great phone, too! Let’s see
just how good it is by looking briefly at the machine’s telephone features.
Important: All of the instructions on this page assume you have attached an
optional handset to your fax machine.
On-hook dialing
Because your machine has a monitor speaker, you can dial without picking up the
handset. For hands-free dialing:
1
Redial
Press MONITOR/CALL. You’ll hear a dial tone (unless you have set your speaker
volume to Off; see page 1.8–1.9), and the LCD will show:
**
Press REDIAL/PAUSE to — you guessed it! — redial the last number you dialed. (Be
sure that attempt, too, was also a regular phone call. In a multi-user setting, someone else may have quickly sent a fax without your knowing it.)
Hold
You can put a call on hold during a conversation by pressing HOLD/DIALING OPTIONS.
The LCD will show:
**
On Hold **
At this point, you can either hang up the handset or leave it off the hook. To return
to your conversation:
• If you hung up the handset, pick it up.
• If you didn’t hang up the handset, press HOLD/DIALING OPTIONS again.
You can EasyDial regular phone calls, too
Just in case you didn’t notice, the EasyDial directory dialing feature is available for
regular phone calls as well as fax calls. Review the EasyDial instructions on page 2.14
for more information.
Tel Mode **

2
Dial the number you want. You may use either the numeric keypad, a onetouch key or a speed-dial number.
Note: Remember, your fax machine’s monitor speaker is not a speakerphone. Be
sure to pick up the handset if the other person answers!
Note: You can also dial a fax call this way if, for some reason, you want to hear
the other machine’s answering fax tones. (Make sure there’s a document in
the feeder.) When you do hear those tones, press START to send the document.
Changing the dialing type
If your fax machine is on a pulse (not tone-dialing) line, switch from pulse dialing to
tone (DTMF) dialing. Use the # (pound) key on the numeric keypad (the LCD will show)
after the actual phone number but before any characters (such as a long-distance
carrier’s access code) which must be in DTMF tone.
Note: Do not use on a tone line.
Note: When you hang up the handset, your machine will return to “pulse” dialing
for the next call.
Dialing in the event of a power failure
Your fax machine can receive a telephone call using your handset even in the event
of a power failure, but it cannot send or receive a fax document.
2.15
Beyond the basics
Broadcasting
The basics of broadcasting
The fastest way to fax one document to many recipients is by broadcasting — and
your fax machine has very powerful broadcasting capabilities. You can use broadcasting from any function requiring the entry of a fax number! That means
you can perform delayed broadcasting (see pages 2.19–2.20), polling broadcasting
(see pages 2.23–2.24) and even broadcasting to “hub” units for relay broadcast initiation (see pages 2.17–2.18).
In an ordinary broadcast, you send the fax as you normally would, except for one
change: you just add more fax numbers! You can enter up to 150 numbers (20 normally dialed numbers, plus 130 autodialer numbers).
We’ll assume you’ve become familiar with regular fax transmission, and we’ll
shorten the instructions a bit below.

Insert the document and make any necessary adjustments as usual.
Press BROADCAST.
What if you want the broadcast to happen later? That’s the purpose of setting up a
delayed broadcast.
Note: The main discussion of delayed commands comes up in the “Delayed transmission” section (pages 2.19–2.20). You may want to read that material
before proceeding.

3
Press START. Your fax machine will scan the document into memory and then
send it to each number you’ve entered.
The main idea is: when it’s time to enter the fax number for your document, you
enter multiple numbers until you’ve either reached 150 numbers or finished dialing
all the numbers you want to dial for this document.
Follow steps 1–4 of “The basics of broadcasting” (left column).
Press COM-OPTIONS, ENTER.
Use the numeric keypad to enter the day of the month and time when you
want the fax to perform the broadcast. Here, we’ve set it to occur at 10:15 PM
on the 30th.
Delayed
Enter Time: 30/22:15
To add each successive fax number, press BROADCAST between each one to
insert a comma, then enter the number as in step 3. You can specify up to 150
numbers (see first paragraph, above) for a broadcast.
Important: Do not insert a comma after the last fax number.
Note: If you enter characters by mistake, just press CANCEL to clear them
before proceeding.
2.16
Delayed broadcasting
Enter the first fax number — a one-touch number, a speed-dial number or just
a regular number dialed from the numeric keypad as usual.
Press Start
C,S098,J,9-5551204

Now, press START. Your machine will return to its normal standby mode,
while showing this on the LCD:
** Reserved **

This means your fax machine is “reserved” for the delayed broadcast you
just programmed, but it can still be used by others to send and receive faxes if
your document is stored in memory.
Beyond the basics
Relay broadcasting and relay broadcast initiation
Setting up a relay broadcast initiation
Relay broadcasting is a powerful function that takes advantage of a remote Muratec
“hub” fax machine’s memory to reduce your total communication costs.
A “hub” fax machine is one to which you send a document, so the “hub” can relay it to
other machines which you don’t 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 can only send to a “hub” unit (it cannot
be a “hub” unit).
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’re not sure whether the unit you want to transmit to 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 two-digit 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 four normal fax transmissions, but that would
be four long-distance calls. But 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.

Use the numeric keypad to enter the two-digit identifier of each applicable call
group in the remote “hub” fax machine you’ll be calling. You may specify up to
10 groups for each relay broadcast initiation. Do not press START.
To add each group after the first one, press COM-OPTIONS to add a comma.
Below, we’ve entered 2, COM-OPTIONS, 4.

Now, let’s be a little more specific about 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 2.19–2.20).
• 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.
5
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 as
usual. Do not press START.
6
What you do now depends upon when you wish to begin initiating the
relay broadcast.
• If you want it to begin now, skip to step 8.
• If you want to delay it, press COM-OPTIONS, ENTER.
Note: For more information on delayed transmission, see pages 2.19–2.20.

Use the numeric keypad to enter the day of the month and time when you
want to begin initiating the relay broadcast.
Delayed
Enter Time: 14/14:00
When the entry is complete, press ENTER.

Press START.
If, in step 6, you chose an immediate relay broadcast initiation, your fax machine
will begin dialing the remote “hub” machine. However, if you requested a delayed
command, the machine will display “Reserved” on the LCD’s top line. This means the
command is in memory.
2.18
Beyond the basics
Delayed transmission
Take advantage of lower evening and weekend long-distance rates with delayed
transmission. Your fax machine can store up to 50 delayed commands, each of
which you can program up to 31 days in advance.
Important: If you program a full 50 delayed transmission commands, no further
memory transmission is possible until the machine performs at least
one of the delayed commands. (To review memory transmission, see
pages 1.13–1.14.) However, you always can transmit from the feeder by
using on-hook dialing or an optional handset (see page 1.15).

6
Enter the fax number for the delayed transmission document. You may either
press a one-touch key, enter a speed-dial number or just use the numeric keypad to enter the fax number.
Note: If you make a mistake or want to erase characters entered in a previous setting, press CANCEL to erase leftward. Or, if you want to change
just one character in the number, press to move the cursor leftward,
or to move it rightward, to that character and press CANCEL to
erase it. Then re-enter until the number is just as you want it.

Press START. Your machine will return to its normal standby mode, while
showing this on the LCD:
Setting up a delayed transmission
Important: Your machine remembers only the day of the month, not the month
itself, when it’s supposed to perform a delayed transmission. So for
example, if you want your fax to do something at 5:05 PM on June 26,
don’t make that setting sooner than 5:06 PM on May 26.

Note: To move the cursor to a specific digit, press to move the cursor leftward, or to move it rightward, to that digit.
When the date and time entry is set as you want, press ENTER to save the
delayed transmission. The LCD shows:
** Reserved **
Dec 06 1998 17:17
This means your fax machine is “reserved” for the delayed transmission command you just programmed.
If you had set the machine for transmission from memory, it will scan the
document into memory, after which you can use the machine normally.
If you had set the machine for transmission from the feeder, the machine can
receive faxes but can’t transmit until your document has been saved.
Important: If you’ve 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 cancelling delayed commands
Printing a delayed command list
If you’ve 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 pages 1.15–1.16). Your machine can store up to 50 delayed
commands. It identifies each by a two-digit command number ranging from 01 to 50.
The same procedure lets you display your machine’s stored commands and gives
you a chance to cancel them, if necessary:
Can’t remember some details about a delayed transmission command you set up?
Or has someone else in your office set up a delayed command, and now you have no
idea why the machine is “reserved” and how long it’ll 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, or “remote location”
• 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 “note” telling if the command is a polling or relay broadcast initiation operation
(see pages 2.23–2.24 for more on polling and 2.17–2.18 for more on relay broadcast initiation).
• Any selected call groups for relay broadcast initiation
To print a delayed command list, press PROGRAM, F, 1, ENTER.

Special features
Your fax machine has a number of special features to make your communications easier. We’ll cover them here.
Toggling the cover page
1
Press PROGRAM, H, 1, ENTER. The LCD shows:
Cover Page:
Off
Program/Enter
Cover page
For your convenience, your fax machine can store a cover page to send at the beginning of each outgoing fax. This page includes the current date and time, your
Location ID and your fax number (as stored in the TTI) and a message of up to 40
characters in length. The information appears in a box similar to this:
2
Cover Page:
On
Program/Enter
Note: If you want to abort the operation so the cover page feature won’t
work, press PROGRAM again (so that “Off” appears) and press STOP.
Fax Message From:
Dec 19 1998 14:00
Name:
And Sew It Goes Co.
Fax Number:
972-555-2009
To tell the fax machine it should send a cover page before each document you
transmit, press PROGRAM once or twice until your desired choice appears.
3
Press ENTER to save the setting.
Now the cover page feature is working but your message line (shown in the example, left, as “We appreciate your business. Thank you!”) is blank. To enter that
message, see “Entering the cover page message,” next page.
We appreciate your business. Thank you!
Note: If you send to another plain-paper fax machine, that machine will print this
cover page as a full-sized page with the information box at the top, followed
by the actual document you’re faxing.
How large a bottom margin will result when a thermal-paper fax machine
prints the cover page varies from one model to the next. The only way to tell
for sure is to send a transmission — with the cover page feature activated
(see right column) — to the specific thermal-paper machine in question and
see what happens.
2.21
Beyond the basics
Entering the cover page message
1
2
Press PROGRAM, H, 2, ENTER.
Now, use the one-touch keypad to enter a message for the cover page. The
message can be up to 40 characters in length. You enter the message the
same way you entered your fax name during EasyStart. We’ll review the
process here. (If you’re changing a previously entered message, see the note
at the end of this step.)
Important: As in EasyStart, you enter letters and other non-numeric characters through the one-touch keys.
Cover Page :Upper
_
The word “Upper” means the machine is currently set for entering only
upper-case letters. If you press R, the machine will see it as an R (not an r).
To change it so that pressing a one-touch key will produce a lower-case letter
rather than an upper-case letter, press U2/abc. The display will change to:
Cover Page :Lower
_
This means pressing one-touch keys will enter lower-case letters: pressing R
will produce an r (not an R) on the display.
Managing your fax with its journal and reports
Setting the activity journal
Just as a checkbook records your daily financial transactions, your fax machine
keeps an activity journal which records the machine’s 50 most recent fax transactions. The activity journal lists the following information for each fax transaction:
• Assigned number, starting anew each day at 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 2.5)
• Any special operations — For example, a fax call made using an optional handset
will appear as “Manual”
If you wish, your fax machine will print the activity journal automatically after
50 transactions. To toggle this automatic printing on or off:
1
Auto Print:
Off
Program/Enter
To switch back for upper-case entries, press U1/ABC.
If this setting you see is acceptable, skip to step 3.
Otherwise, proceed to step 2.
To enter spaces, punctuation and symbols, press U3/SYMBOL. This lets you
enter the blue characters shown on the one-touch keypad.
To use the CODE function to enter a wide variety of characters, please review
the explanation on page 2.3. Most of the time, you will probably find the ABC,
abc and SYMBOL keys to be sufficient.
Note: If you make a mistake or want to erase characters entered in a previous setting, press CANCEL to erase leftward. Or, if you want to change
just one character in the message, press to move the cursor leftward,
or to move it rightward, to that character and press CANCEL to
erase it. Then re-enter until the message is just as you want it.
3
When the message is as you want it, press ENTER to save it.
Printing the cover page
To confirm that the cover page is as you want, it’s easy to print a sample cover page
from your fax machine. Press PROGRAM, H, 3, ENTER.

Press ENTER to save the setting.
Printing an activity journal manually
To see an activity journal immediately without waiting, just print the journal manually at any time by pressing PROGRAM, G, 2, ENTER.
Beyond the basics
Setting the reports: TCRs
You can set your fax machine to print a transmit confirmation report (TCR). You can
receive a TCR after sending a fax to any Group 3 fax machine.
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 optional 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 3.8–3.10).
To set the printing for a TCR:
1
Press PROGRAM, G, 3, ENTER. The LCD will show:
TCR:
Off
Program/Enter
If the setting you see is acceptable, skip to step 3.
Otherwise, proceed to step 2.

To toggle the setting, press PROGRAM once or twice until your desired choice
appears. Here, we’ve chosen On.
TCR:
3
On
Program/Enter
Press ENTER to save the setting.
To turn on (or off) the TCR feature for only the next fax transmission, press REPORT.
What happens when pressing this key will vary depending upon the setting you
specified previously:
• If the setting is on (the light next to the key glows), the fax machine disables the
printing of the TCR (the light doesn’t glow).
• If the setting is off (the light doesn’t glow), the fax machine activates automatic
printing of a TCR (the light glows).
If you’re scanning or transmitting a document and you want to turn on (or off) the
TCR feature for this fax transmission only:
• If you specified transmission from memory, press REPORT while the fax scans
your document into memory.
• If you specified transmission from the feeder, press REPORT while the fax
machine communicates with the other fax machine.
after your current transmission, your machine will return to the setting you specified previously (step 2, left column).
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.
• F-Code polling — Retrieves a document stored as a file in the remote F-Code compatible fax. This is possible in communications with Muratec fax machines, as well
as other manufacturers’ F-Code compatible fax machines.
For more information on the F-Code polling feature, see “F-Code communication”
(pages 2.28-2.33).
Regular polling
To perform regular polling of a document from any remote fax machine:
1
2
Make sure that the document is actually sitting in the remote fax machine.
Press COM-OPTIONS three times and then press ENTER. The LCD will show:
Enter Fax Number
_

Press ENTER.
Press START.
When it performs the polling command, your machine will dial the number and,
upon making contact with the other machine, begin receiving the document as if the
other machine had placed the call.
The other side of the coin: being polled
Not only can you poll, you can also be polled. To set up a document for regular
polling:
1
If your fax machine is set for Tel Ready reception, press AUTO ANSWER to
change it to the Auto Answer mode, causing the Auto Answer light to glow.
Important: Your machine can’t be polled if it’s in Tel Ready mode.
2
3
4
Insert the document.
Adjust the resolution and contrast if necessary. (Your fax machine will be
transmitting to the machine doing the polling.)
Press PROGRAM, D, 1, ENTER.
Your fax will scan the document into memory and return to standby mode.
Note: If you want to return to the “Tel Ready” mode after the remote machine has
polled your document, press AUTO ANSWER. This will cause the Auto Answer
light on the control panel to turn off.
But do this only after you are sure the remote machine has polled
your document.
2.24
Erasing a stored polling document
To erase a document you’ve stored for regular polling from your machine’s memory,
press PROGRAM, D, 2, ENTER.
Printing a stored polling document
To print, without erasing, a document you’ve stored for regular polling,
press PROGRAM, D, 3, ENTER.
Limiting polling access to your fax machine
Your machine’s closed network setting (see page 2.49) works for polling, as well. If a
calling fax doesn’t “present” the proper passcode, it cannot poll from your fax.
Note: However, if you’re using the Block Junk Fax feature (see pages 2.49–2.50),
even incoming calls which meet the passcode test must come from appropriate phone numbers.
OneLine + distinctive ring detection
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:

Press PROGRAM repeatedly until your desired pattern appears (in our example here, “C”):
Ring Pattern:
C
Program/Enter
0.8 on, 0.4 off, 0.8 on, 4.0 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.
To use DRD on your fax machine:
1
5

7
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 documentation found inside your fax machine’s box).
Important: With your machine set for using DRD, it won’t respond to any ring pattern other than the one you’ve selected, above. To reset the fax so it
will respond once again to normal rings, repeat steps 2–4, above —
except, in step 3, toggle it to “Off.” Your fax now will respond normally.
Call request
Wondering why your monitor speaker’s activation key is called MONITOR/CALL?
Now, we’ll 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 not at the same time). This is called a call request. It
doesn’t matter whether you’re 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. Your machine must also have an optional
handset attached.
Faxing/receiving first, then talking
To send or receive a fax first and then talk:

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 optional handset.
If you order 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 (see page 2.5) is set to one ring.
Please set the number of rings to two or more rings to receive the callerID.
• The line condition is poor.
Note: For more information about caller-ID service, please contact your local telephone company.

2.26
Lift your machine’s optional 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.
In its memory, your fax machine keeps 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 caller-ID directory to make a regular phone call, make sure
there is no document in the feeder and then skip to step 4.
If you want to use caller-ID directory to send a fax, insert the document.

Scroll through the listings to find the one you want. You do this by pressing
SPEED DIAL/TEL INDEX.
Note: Do not press 2, 4, 6 or 8 on the numeric keypad. If you press 2, 4, 6 or
8, the fax machine will change to the EasyDial directory.
6
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. (Remember that, to make a
regular phone call from your machine, you must have an optional handset
attached.) At this point, you may either:
— Lift the handset now
or
— Listen to the monitor speaker until you hear the other person answer,
and then lift the handset to begin your conversation.
Printing the caller-ID List
You can print a list of the caller-IDs for the 10 most recent receptions.

Beyond the basics
F-Code communication
F-Code: an introduction
The ITU-T, part of the United Nations agency that maintains international telecommunications standards (see the Glossary that begins on page 3.17), 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 create or modify an F-Code box:
1
Keep pen and paper with you as you follow this procedure. As you decide on a
sub-address and enter it (and, if applicable, a password or I.D. code), write it
down. Remember to write down which box goes with which sub-address (and
passcode, if applicable). When you’ve completed this procedure, keep the
printed record in a safe place.
2
Press PROGRAM, E, 1, ENTER. Depending on whether you already have a name
entered for F-Code box 01, the LCD shows:
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.
Select F-Code Box
01:No Number Stored
If this is the F-Code box you want to set, skip to step 4. (However, our sample
displays from this point forward will refer to F-Code box 03, rather than FCode box 01.)

Use the numeric keypad to enter the two-digit number (01-10) of the F-Code
box you want to create or modify. Here, we’ve entered 0, 3 and see either:
Select F-Code Box
03:No Number Stored
Select F-Code Box

If you change your mind and want to select a different F-Code box, just use
the numeric keypad to enter the correct two-digit F-Code box number before
going on to step 5.

Press ENTER. Your next move depends on whether you’re creating or modifying the F-Code box:
If creating — skip to step 7.
If modifying — the LCD asks you to enter the proper I.D. code. Proceed to step

review the process here. (If you’re changing a previously entered name, see
the note at the end of this step.)
If you do not wish to change an existing sub-address, skip to step 11.
If you do wish to enter or change the sub-address, proceed to step 10.

Important: As in EasyStart, you enter letters and other non-numeric characters through the one-touch keys.
03:Box Name:Upper

Note: The sub-address must be unique to this F-Code box. No other
F-Code box in this fax machine can have the same sub-address.
Note: If you make a mistake or want to erase characters in a previous setting, press CANCEL to erase leftward. Or if you want to change just
one character in the number, press to move the cursor leftward, or
to move it rightward, to that character and press CANCEL to erase
it. Then re-enter until the number is just as you want it.
To change it so that pressing a one-touch key will produce a lower-case letter
rather than an upper-case letter, press U2/abc. The display will change to:
03:Box Name:Lower
_
11
To switch back for upper-case entries, press U1/ABC.
To enter space, punctuation and symbols, press U3/SYMBOL. This lets you
enter the blue characters shown on the one-touch keypad.
To use the CODE function to enter a wide variety of characters, please review
the explanation on page 2.3. Most of the time, you will probably find the ABC,
abc and SYMBOL keys to be sufficient.
Note: If you make a mistake or want to erase characters entered in a previous setting, press CANCEL to erase leftward. Or, if you want to change
just one character in the name, press to move the cursor leftward,
or to move it rightward, to that character and press CANCEL to
erase it. Then re-enter until the name is just as you want it.
Use the numeric keypad to enter the sub-address to identify this F-Code box.
The sub-address can be up to 20 characters in length and include any combination of numbers and the * and # characters (but no other non-numerical
characters). (If you’re changing a previously entered sub-address, see the note
at the end of this step.)
03:Sub-Address No.

Printing a document you receive
When your fax 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 (see page 2.30)
in which to print out the message before your machine automatically erases it.
Note: For this operation to work, two things must be true:

• If you’ve entered an incorrect I.D. code, your fax machine will refuse to
print the document.
F-Code transmission and polling
With F-Code, your machine can send secure transmissions to, and perform polling
from Muratec fax machines as well as other manufacturers’ machines.
You may accomplish such transmissions in either of two ways:
• Programmable one-touch key (see pages 2.34-2.41)
• Direct entry of the ITU-T sub-address and password, which is what we will now
describe.
Whether you are sending to or polling from another machine, you have to know the
correct sub-address on the receiving machine, as well as the password if that subaddress has one.
Note: For F-Code communication to work, three things must be true:
• The remote fax machine must support ITU-T sub-addressing (and password) capabilities.
• A mailbox with an ITU-T sub-address must exist on the remote fax. (It
doesn’t need to have a password.)
• You must know the ITU-T sub-address and password (if any) information
for the mailbox on the remote machine.

Programmable one-touch keys
Using the power of programmable one-touch keys
The programmable one-touch keys P1–P6 (fliptab b) 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-keypress convenience (the pages shown contain instructions for the specific operations):
• Delayed transmission (pages 2.19–2.20)
• Broadcasting (page 2.16)
• Relay broadcast initiation (pages 2.17–2.18)
• Regular polling (pages 2.23–2.24)
• F-Code transmission (pages 2.32–2.33)
• F-Code polling (page 2.33)
The actions for setting up these operations is very similar for each one. For your
convenience, we’ll give you full instructions on setting each operation. First, though,
we’ll summarize by saying that each time you tell the machine four simple things:
• How — The key you’re 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 has a number of features to enhance the security of your fax communications. These security features can help you keep your 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 capabilities. Normally, this four-digit passcode is set to 0000 (four zeroes).
This turns off passcode operation. But, if you set the passcode to anything besides
0000, this passcode provides access to a number of other security options, which
we’ll describe in the following pages.
To set your machine’s passcode:
1
1
Press ENTER.
Enter the desired four-digit passcode. Here, we’ve entered 6296:
2
Use the numeric keypad to enter the passcode. Here, we’ve entered 6296:

Press ENTER to save the passcode.
Note: Any time you want to turn off the passcode, change the passcode back to
0000 by repeating steps 2–6 and entering 0000 in step 5.
Press PROGRAM, J, 1, 6, ENTER. The LCD shows:

Important: For this feature to work, you must have set the passcode, as described
in the left column.
Because this is a powerful machine you have here — and, besides, you’re paying for
its phone calls — you may not want just anybody to use it. That’s why we’ve provided operation protection. When this feature is activated, only users who enter the
correct passcode (see “The key to it all: the password,” left column) can send faxes
from the machine or change the machine’s settings.
Decide upon, and then write down the four-digit passcode (0001–9999) you
want to use and put it in a safe place.
Important: Do not use 0000. This turns off passcode protection.

Print it later, when it’s safe — security reception
Your fax machine has a security reception capability. This means that you can tell
the machine to keep all received faxes in memory (but not print them) after a certain time. Then, later, you instruct it to go ahead and print out the saved faxes.
This is great if, for example, you are concerned about workers reading documents
intended for your eyes only!
Use the numeric keypad to enter the passcode. Here, we’ve entered 6296:

the passcode,” page 2.45.
1
Print Mem Rx Doc.
Enter Passcode :6296
3
Press ENTER.
• If you’ve entered the correct passcode, your fax machine will print all documents in its memory and then erase them. Then it will turn security
reception back off until the next time your machine is set to secure receive.
• If you’ve entered an incorrect code, your fax machine will refuse to print,
and security reception remains active.
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 2.45) must be something besides 0000, and you must know the passcode.
There are three possible settings for the PIN MASK feature:
• Off — The feature isn’t 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.
• Mode 2 — Each fax user has a departmental PIN access code.
Note: If you select Mode 1 and you will use a one-touch or speed-dial number, you
must store the remote unit’s PIN access code within that number. However,
if you select Mode 2, this isn’t necessary. (See “Autodialing while using the
PIN mask,” this page, right column for further details.)
Press PROGRAM, J, 1, 7, ENTER. The LCD shows:

Note: If the PIN mask feature is off, you use the autodialer normally.
If you’ve specified “Mode 1” — the PIN goes in
In Mode 1, before autodialing a number for the first time, you must add the PIN to
its stored one-touch key or speed-dial number. Here’s how:

Press ENTER to save the PIN.
Note: If you press ENTER without entering the PIN, the fax machine beeps,
indicates “Invalid Number” on the LCD and then returns you to step 3.
Now you may autodial the number as usual.
Important: While in PIN Mode 1, every autodialer number you use must include

Beyond the basics
Settings for use with a closed network
Setting Block Junk Fax
For maximum communications security, use a closed network. This limits your
machine to only communicating with other Muratec fax machines which can “present” the proper passcode.
Your fax machine’s Block Junk Fax feature lets you bar the gates against unauthorized incoming faxes (“junk fax”) … But before you block junk fax, first please
understand how this feature works, to determine whether it’s right for you. There
are four possible settings:
• Off — The feature isn’t activated.
• Mode 1 — Your fax machine checks whether the last four digits of any phone
number in your autodialer matches the last four digits of the remote fax’s subscriber ID (remember, that’s the phone number part of the TTI). If it doesn’t find a
match, your machine disconnects the call.
• Mode 2 — This mode rejects any call from a number whose last eight digits
match any number in the blocked numbers list (we’ll explain). Your machine can
hold up to 30 blocked numbers.
• Mode 3 — This rejects numbers that are not in the autodialer and also rejects
numbers that are in the blocked numbers list. This lets you keep a number on
your autodialer for transmission to it, while still blocking its incoming calls by
putting it in the blocked numbers list.
So, before you activate the Block Junk Fax feature, please 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 extra codes,
such as long-distance codes, Block Junk Fax will block out calls from those faxes
(those other fax users won’t put your codes at the end of their Subscriber IDs).
If you decide to go ahead with activating Block Junk Fax, here’s how:
Important: The passcode you use for closed network operation (and limiting polling
access; see page 2.24) is not the same as the protection passcode.
Once your machine is set up this way, your machine will disconnect calls coming in
from fax machines other Muratec fax machines.
To set your fax machine’s closed network password:

Figuring out communications problems
Occasionally during transmissions, your fax machine will detect a problem with the
phone line or will encounter some other trouble in transmission or reception. When
it does, it will alert you with an alarm. You can further identify the problem with
LCD messages, printed check messages and error reports. In the next few pages, we’ll
tell you more about these troubleshooting methods.
What you see on the LCD
Check Cassette Paper The optional paper cassette is out of paper. Add
paper to the cassette.
. . . or . . .
The optional paper cassette is open. Close it.
Check Paper Size
The multipurpose tray’s paper size setting (see
page 1.8) doesn’t conform to the paper actually
in the tray. Either change the setting or change
the paper so that they are the same.
Check Rx Paper
Both the multipurpose tray and the optional
paper cassette are out of paper. Add paper to the
tray and/or the cassette.
Check Tray Paper
The multipurpose tray is out of paper. Add
paper to the tray.
Close Scanner Cover
The scanner cover is open. Close it.
Close Top Cover
The printer cover is open. Close it.
Communication Error
A communication error disrupted the reception
or transmission. If you were transmitting, press
ENTER to clear the error message and then re-try
the transmission. If you were receiving a fax, try
to contact the other person and have him/her retry the transmission. (The problem may be
entirely with his/her machine, phone line, etc.)
Enter No.(0-32)
You tried to enter a call group number greater
than 32. 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.
Enter No.(1-99)
You tried to request “0” copies from your fax,
which can create 1–99 copies of a document.
Select the correct quantity and re-enter it.
Alarm
Your fax machine will sound the alarm tone — a series of short beeps — if it suffers
either of these two problems:
• It has trouble transmitting or receiving.
• It runs out of paper.

Errors
Reset Document
Your document wasn’t inserted correctly, or the
fax to which you’re sending can’t handle the document’s page length. Reset the page and try
again.
Scanner In Use
The command you’re trying to enter requires the

Sub-Address In Use
You tried to enter a sub-address identical to one
already being used in another F-Code box. Enter
a different sub-address.
When sending faxes, your machine occasionally will run into communications errors.
These can be caused by anything from lightning to telephone line interference.
(These same factors cause the static, or line noise, you sometimes hear on phone
calls.) They also can be caused by problems with the fax machine at the other end of
the line.
Often, simply trying your call again is all that’s necessary. However, if the problem
persists regularly, call your local telephone company for help. If that doesn’t help and
the problem persists regularly, call your authorized Muratec dealer.
Too Many Characters
You attempted to enter too many numbers or
other characters in the current operation. Press
CANCEL to delete the extra characters, then try
again. You may want to review the operation’s
instructions.
Too Many Locations
You tried to enter too many numbers for a
broadcast initiation. You can enter up to 10
groups. Press CANCEL to delete the extra numbers
and try again.
Error reports
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.
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
Just in case …
Specific errors
Transmission errors
Let’s quickly summarize the error codes you may see on an error report:
T.1.1
Dialing errors
D.0.3,
D.0.8
The remote unit didn’t respond, the call couldn’t be completed or STOP
was pressed during dialing. Re-try the call. If your machine repeats the message, call the remote fax unit’s operator and verify that unit is operating properly.
D.0.2 The remote unit is busy. Try the call again.
D.0.6, Either the remote unit didn’t respond, the call somehow didn’t go through or
D.0.7 STOP was pressed during dialing. Try the call again.
Reception errors
R.1.1
The calling fax machine didn’t respond to your fax machine. This can happen if someone dials a wrong number or if the remote machine restricts
access through use of a passcode.
R.1.2
The two fax machines were incompatible. Your fax machine sends and
receives only ITU-T Group 3 (see Glossary, pages 3.17–3.20) fax communication, the industry standard since the early 1980s.
R.1.4
Someone pressed STOP at the receiving fax machine.
R.2.3
Poor phone line conditions made fax communication impossible. Call someone at the remote machine’s location.
R.3.1
The sending fax machine detected too many errors from the receiving
fax machine.
R.3.3
The sending fax machine is incompatible or had a document feeder problem
during transmission.
R.3.4
Poor phone line conditions may have prevented your fax machine from properly printing some or all of the pages it received.
R.4.2
Either the line disconnected before transmission or the transmitting fax
machine needs maintenance.
R.4.4
The fax machine has reached its memory capacity.
R.5.1, ECM reception failed (perhaps due to line noise).
R.5.2
The remote fax machine didn’t respond to your machine. Call someone at the
remote machine’s location.
T.1.4
Someone pressed STOP at the remote unit in the middle of the handshake
(the very first part of the fax communication, when the two units “agree” on
the settings they’ll share).
T.2.1
Either the phone line disconnected during transmission or fax communication became impossible due to bad phone line conditions. Try the call again.
T.2.2
The two fax machines were incompatible. Your fax machine sends and
receives only ITU-T Group 3 (see “Glossary,” page 3.17) fax communication,
the industry standard since the early 1980s.
T.2.3
Bad phone line conditions made fax communication impossible. Conditions
can change rapidly, so try the call again later.
T.3.1
The page counter in your fax machine detected a document feeder error during transmission. Carefully re-insert the document into the feeder and re-try
the call.
T.4.1
The telephone line disconnected during the transmission of a page because
of excessive modem errors or because the remote unit ran out of paper. Try
the call again.
T.4.2
After transmission began, poor line conditions developed. Try the call again.
T.4.4
Poor line conditions prevented transmission. Re-try the call.
T.5.1, ECM transmission failed (perhaps due to line noise). Conditions can change
T.5.2, rapidly, so try the call again later.
T.5.3

“Check Message” printouts
When there’s a problem with a fax call and your machine detects an error, it produces an error printout headed by the words “Check Message.” This printout lists
the following information about the transmission:
• The resulting error code
• A communications error message (see “What error messages can mean,” below)
• The phone number (or TTI, if programmed) of the fax machine with which your
machine had attempted to communicate.
What error messages can mean
The error messages on Check Message printouts can mean a variety of things.
Here’s a brief summary:

Caring for your fax machine
With proper installation and a little maintenance, your fax machine should give you
dependable service for years to come.
Although it requires little day-to-day care, you can take these simple precautions 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).
Keep the air vents clean
As you’ll recall from page 1.6, you shouldn’t cover your machine or it may overheat.
However, dust can build up and become a sort of “cover.” You already know not to
locate your machine in a dusty area, but, any object out in the open obviously will
gather dust as time passes.
So, be sure to 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 left side of the machine (as viewed from in front;
the drawing below is a view from the machine’s left rear):
Cleaning tips
Here are 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. They’re sealed for
a purpose: to protect your safety and the machine!
• This tip applies only to 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. (See the next step also.)
• In areas you can’t reach with swabs, always use dry, dust-free compressed air to
gently blow away dust and other material.

Corrective cleaning
If you have unsatisfactory printout quality
Here are some simple cleaning procedures for keeping your fax machine operating
smoothly. Use each as the need arises.
Your machine automatically cleans its charger and transport roller, two items
which are very important to printout quality. So, if you notice poor printout quality
(whether on received faxes or on copies), it may mean that your machine requires
service. Review “Print quality problems” (pages 3.4–3.5), and see whether any of the
proposed solutions helps your machine. If these don’t help, please call your authorized Muratec dealer.
Curing frequent jams in the document feeder
If you’re having trouble with getting your original documents to feed properly, try
this procedure:

2
Turn off your fax machine.
3
Open the scanner cover by holding the
scanner cover release.
Get two soft, lint-free cloths and moisten them as follows:
• One with a cleaner suitable for use on platen/rubber rollers
• The other with isopropyl alcohol
Important: You must hold the cover
open. It won’t stay open
by itself.
3.12
4
Use the cloth with the
roller cleaner to clean
the face of the rollers.
Rotate the rollers
by hand to allow
cleaning of the
entire roller surface.
5
Use the cloth with the
isopropyl alcohol to clean
the contact glass.

Common questions
We’re on-line to help you!
Before you try calling for help, please give the Muratec Information System
a try first.
The Muratec Information System is available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days
a week. You can use your fax machine to call this “fax-on-demand” system
and receive printouts of information, such as the most common questions
asked about your machine. Often, this is the fastest way to find out the
answer to any question you may have. And it’s a free call!
To use the Muratec Information System:
1
On your fax machine, obtain a dial tone by pressing MONITOR/CALL. (If
you’re in a noisy area and have an optional handset attached to your
machine, you may want to simply lift the handset instead.)
2
3
Call 1-800-215-1698.
Follow the voice instructions you’ll receive from the system.
General questions
Q: Where do I add ink or toner to make my fax machine’s printouts darker?
A: You can’t adjust the darkness of an incoming fax printout, but you can adjust
the darkness of a copy (or copies) or of a transmission. Insert a document and
press CONTRAST repeatedly to adjust the contrast setting. “Dark” prints at 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’ve stored — such as my TTI, autodialer entries, the time and date, etc. — and
have to re-enter them?
A: No. There’s a special battery built into your fax machine which protects user
settings for several days if power fails or if you decide to move your machine.
However, we do 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.)
Sending faxes
Q: Sometimes, I try to send a fax while using either the (optional) 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’ll
hear sounds like that any time you call a fax machine which is set to answer
automatically (as when you set your machine to Auto Answer mode). It’s by
using these tones that fax machines are able to send faxes over ordinary phone
lines. So, next time you hear such tones, press START (and, if you’re using an
optional 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 wasn’t 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’re really
using. And frankly, some people take over other’s already-programmed fax
machines and don’t know how to change the originally set number!
Q: Can I transmit and receive at the same time?
A: No. Use the call request feature (see pages 2.25–2.26) to ask the person at the
remote fax machine if he or she wants to transmit or receive after your fax
communication is complete.
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.
3.13
Just in case …
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 011, then
dial 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 confirmation reports (see page 2.23) aren’t 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 an appropriately sized copy of the newspaper page, then
transmit the copy.
Q: Can I transmit a page with correction fluid on it?
A: Yes, but only 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 2.23).
Q: I don’t want to install a dedicated phone line for my fax machine, so I’ve 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 PBX manufacturer or telephone company for assistance. They 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 (optional) 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 optional
handset if you’re using it), as usual. It’s possible you’re calling an older, nonstandard fax machine that doesn’t emit answering tones. Even a few Group 3
faxes (see “Glossary,” page 3.17) 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’s location to see if he/she got your document.
3.14
Q: I inserted a document in the feeder and dialed a fax number, but my machine
didn’t 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 50 delayed commands
(counting automatic redials), your machine should still accept commands from
you. If it has exceeded this quantity and will accept no more commands, try cancelling one of the delayed commands (see pages 2.19–2.20). If the machine still
won’t cooperate, keep cancelling 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.
Q: What’s a default?
A: A default is a setting that your machine will always refer to if nothing else is
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.
Reports
Q: I called the number 011-555-555-1212, 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”, and 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
Working with your answering machine
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 pages 1.6–1.8). If you’re using a second phone
with your machine, make sure it’s connected properly (page 1.9).
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. What happened?
A: Any remote fax machine attempting to send a fax must “hear” responding fax
tones within somewhat under 40 seconds after the person at that machine
presses 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 1.20 for a suggestion).
Q: Sometimes when I answer my machine with the optional 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 the AC power jack just to receive
a message?
A: Yes. Your phone will ring if the phone line is connected, but 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’re 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. The OneLine + feature (see pages 2.24-2.25) lets you receive calls on up to
two phone numbers if your telephone company has installed the appropriate
DRD service, but you can use only one number at a time.
Polling
Q: What’s the purpose of polling?
A: Polling lets you automatically “pull” a document which is set in 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.
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 satisfactory 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.
3.15
Just in case …
• 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 Tel/Fax Ready mode and you have other telephone extensions on the same line, all the other phones will ring. In fact, there’s 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’ll 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 the
machine it calls.
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 acknowledgement — just like
greetings you might exchange with a friend — 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. However, they also limit the way you can use
your machine with other devices, such as telephones and answering machines.
Nonetheless, this is a small price to pay for the ability to send documents just about
anywhere on earth!

Glossary
This glossary contains terms and words you may encounter when discussing or
reading about fax machines and fax communications. Please use these definitions
for reference only.
A4, B4, A3 — Standard stationery sizes defined by the International Standards
Organization, an agency of the United Nations. See also Paper sizes.
Answering machine — See TAD.
Autodialing — Enables user to store preprogrammed telephone numbers in the
unit’s memory. Storage capability varies from unit to unit.
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.
3.17
Just in case …
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.
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.
3.18
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.
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.
Just in case …
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.
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″ × 14.3″
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.
— 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.
PSTN

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.
TAD — Telephone answering device, or answering machine. Records incoming voice
messages for playback. You can connect a TAD to a Muratec fax machine and use the
two on one phone line.
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.

Regulatory information
United States of America
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) information
Ringer Equivalence Number (RENs): AC REN, 3.2B; DC REN, 0.3.
This facsimile machine has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant to
Part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference in a
residential installation.
This equipment generates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance
with the instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that
interference will not occur in a particular installation.
If this equipment causes interference in radio or television reception (which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on), the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
• Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
• Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
• Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
This equipment complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules. On the bottom of this equipment is a label that contains, among
other information, the FCC registration number and REN for this equipment. If so requested, you must provide this information to the telephone company.
An FCC-compliant telephone cord and modular plug are provided with this equipment. This equipment is designed to be
connected to the telephone network or premises wiring using a compatible modular jack which is Part-68-compliant.
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 1.10–1.11.
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.

If problems arise
If any of your telephone equipment is not operating properly, you should immediately remote it from your telephone
line, as it may cause harm to the telephone network. If the telephone company notes a problem, they may temporarily
stop service. When practical, they will notify you before this disconnection. If advance notice is not feasible, you will be
notified as soon as possible. When you are notified, you will be given the opportunity to correct the problem and will be
informed of your right to file a complaint with the FCC.
In the event repairs are ever needed on your fax machine, they should be done by Muratec America, Inc., or an
authorized representative of Muratec America, Inc. For information, contact the Muratec Customer Support Center at

valid only on Muratec products purchased and used in the United States of America. This warranty
applies to the product only while owned and used by the original purchaser (“Customer”). If ownership of
the product is transferred, this warranty terminates. This warranty does not apply to any product in use
for rental purposes.
This Muratec product is warranted against defects in material and workmanship for ninety (90) days
commencing the date of original Customer purchase. If the product is defective in material and/or workmanship (normal wear and tear excepted) during the warranty period, Muratec or its authorized
representative will, during Muratec’s established service availability hours, make necessary adjustments
and repairs, including, at Muratec’s option, installation of replacement parts. Muratec’s service availability hours are 8:30 AM to 5:00 PM (Central time) Monday through Friday, excluding Muratec-recognized
holidays. Muratec will complete the necessary adjustments and repairs within a reasonable time period,
as dictated by the nature of the problem and by Muratec’s service schedule. Replacement parts may have
been used and/or reconditioned. Parts that have been replaced will remain the property of Muratec. This
warranty is subject to the OBLIGATIONS and EXCLUSIONS set forth.
Obligations
1. This warranty will be honored only on presentation of the original dated authorized Muratec bill of sale
or Muratec dealer bill of sale or sales slip to an authorized Muratec service representative or service
center. For the name of your authorized service center, contact Muratec (from the United States, call
1-972-364-3350; from Canada, check your in-box materials for the number to call).
2. During the warranty period, the Customer must notify Muratec by telephone of any defective product
material and/or workmanship.
3. Transportation (including prepayment of freight and insurance charges) of the product to and from an
authorized service center, designated by Muratec, is the responsibility of the Customer.
4. If Muratec provides maintenance or responds to a call which is outside the scope of this warranty, such
maintenance shall be billed to the Customer at Muratec’s then-current rates for maintenance and
parts and shall be due and payable in full upon receipt of invoice.
Exclusions
1. This warranty shall not cover a product with missing or altered original identification marks.
2. This warranty applies only to products that the purchaser has properly installed, adjusted and operated in accordance with the instructions set forth in or provided with product literature. This warranty
does not apply to any product which has been subjected to tampering, alteration, misuse, abuse,
neglect, improper installation or transportation damage. Nor does it apply to costs for any service
requested for demonstration or to confirm proper operation of this product.
3. The warranty shall not apply to adjustments, repairs or replacements necessitated by any cause
beyond the control of Muratec (whether foreseeable or not) including, but not limited to, any malfunction, defects or failure caused by or resulting from any of the following: improper unpacking or
installation, unauthorized service or parts, or improper maintenance or cleaning, modification or
repair by the Customer, accident (including, without limitation, unavoidable accidents), fire, flood or
other Acts of God, improper telephone or electrical power or surges thereof, interconnection with or use
of non-compatible equipment or supplies (including paper), or placement of the product in an area
which does not conform to Muratec space, electrical and/or environmental requirements.
4. Muratec will not be required to make adjustments, repairs or replacements if the product is installed
or used at a location deemed by Muratec to be hazardous to health or safety, or if Muratec is not provided with free and reasonable access to the product and a telephone during service availability hours,
or if the product location is not accessible by an authorized Muratec service vehicle.

MAKES NO OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES
OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, AND ANY WARRANTY ARISING FROM COURSE OF
DEALING OR USAGE OF TRADE), AND MURATEC EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES NOT STATED HEREIN. IN THE
EVENT THE PRODUCT IS NOT FREE FROM DEFECTS AS WARRANTED ABOVE, THE CUSTOMER’S SOLE REMEDY SHALL BE

EXPENSES, LOST PROFITS, LOST SAVINGS OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE
THE MURATEC PRODUCT, EVEN IF MURATEC OR ITS REPRESENTATIVES HAVE BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF
SUCH DAMAGES.
Some States do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, and some
States do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitations or exclusions may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other
rights which vary from State to State.

Safety information
Laser safety
Warning labels
This fax machine contains a page printer which operates by means of a laser. There
is no possibility of danger from the laser, provided the fax machine is operated
according to the instructions provided in this manual.
Since radiation emitted by the laser is completely confined with a protective housing,
the laser beam cannot escape from the machine during any phase of user operation.
Internal laser radiation information
For all users
Maximum radiation power: 5.0 × 10-4 (W)
Wavelength: 770–810 (nm)
This is a Class IIIb laser diode assembly that has an invisible laser beam. The
printer head unit is NOT A FIELD SERVICE ITEM. Therefore, the printer head unit
should not be opened under any circumstances.
For United States users
Laser safety
This fax is certified as a Class 1 laser product under the U. S. Department of
Health and Human Services (DHHS) Radiation Performance Standard according
to the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act of 1990. This means that the fax machine does
not produce hazardous laser radiation.
CDRH regulations
The Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) of the U. S. Food and
Drug Administration implemented regulations for laser products on August 2, 1976.
Compliance is mandatory for products marketed in the United States. The labels
shown in the graphic (see right column) indicates compliance with the CDRH regulations and must be attached to laser products marketed in the United States.
Warning: Use of controls, adjustments or performance of procedures other
than those specified in this manual may result in hazardous radiation exposure.
