jack
If you have only one telephone line and plan to use the MultiPASS L6000
for receiving both faxes and voice calls, you must attach a telephone and/or
answering machine to the unit.
If you have only one telephone line, the most efficient way to use your system
is to attach a cordless phone with a built-in answering machine to the
MultiPASS L6000.
If you have a separate telephone and a separate answering machine, be sure to
attach the telephone to the answering machine, and then attach the answering
machine to the MultiPASS L6000.
If you have a modem installed in your computer, you can attach it to the
MultiPASS L6000. Connect the telephone line from the wall outlet to the L jack.
Then connect the line from the
jack on the MultiPASS to the jack on
the modem. If others access your computer frequently through the modem, or if
you use your modem extensively, you may want a dedicated telephone line for
your modem.

(three-pronged outlet).
The MultiPASS L6000 has no power switch. The power is on as long as the system is
plugged in.
As the MultiPASS warms up, it displays the PLEASE WAIT message in the LCD.
PLEASE WAIT
Because the toner cartridge is not installed yet, you will also see this message:
CHECK COVER/CART
Caution
The MultiPASS L6000 is equipped with a 3-prong, grounding-type plug
(the third pin is a grounding pin). This plug will only fit into a grounding-type
outlet. This is a safety feature. If you are unable to insert the plug into your
outlet, contact an electrician to replace your outlet (do not use a 3-to-2 adapter).
Do not defeat the safety purpose of the grounding-type plug.
Do not plug the MultiPASS L6000 into the same outlet as your computer or
into an outlet shared with an appliance such as an air conditioner, electric
typewriter, or copier. These devices generate electrical noise that may interfere
with the operation of the MultiPASS L6000.

Caution
Spilled toner can stain any surface. Open the FX-3 Toner Cartridge very carefully.
See your User's Manual for complete details on toner cartridge maintenance.

toner cartridge.
Remove the new FX-3 Toner Cartridge from its protective bag.
Save the protective bag; you may need to repack the cartridge later.
Gently rock the cartridge from front to back and from side to side several times
to distribute the toner evenly inside the cartridge.
Poor print quality may result if the toner becomes unequally distributed
inside the cartridge.
10
Place the cartridge on a flat clean surface, and steady it with one hand.
Remove the seal by pulling on the plastic tab with your other hand.
Use a firm, even pull to remove the plastic seal. To avoid breaking the seal,
do not jerk on it unevenly.

Loading a Stack of Paper
1
Fan a stack
of paper.
You can stack up to 100 sheets of plain paper in the multi-purpose tray.
Fan the edge that will feed into the MultiPASS first; then tap the stack
on a flat surface to even its edges.
2
Open the
paper guides.
Open the paper guides to the approximate width of the stack of paper.
13
3
Insert the stack
of paper.
Make sure the side you will be printing on faces you and insert the top edge into
the multi-purpose tray first.
Insert the stack until it stops, but do not force it.
4
Adjust the
paper guides to
the width of
the paper.
Make sure there is no space between the paper guides and the stack of paper.
Your MultiPASS L6000 is now ready to print.
Avoid mixing new paper with paper remaining in the tray. Either let the paper
run out before you refill the multi-purpose tray, or re-stack the paper when
you want to add more sheets.

18
Setting Up Your Faxing System
During the installation of the MultiPASS Desktop Manager, you define the basic faxing
elements of your MultiPASS system, including:
Fax header
Your name and number; this information is then printed on the top of each fax
you send.
In the United States, you are required by FCC regulations to include this
information every time you send a fax. Be sure to fill in this information.
Receive Mode
How you will be receiving faxes. During installation, you will choose one of the
following Receive modes:
Fax Only mode
You must have a separate telephone line for the MultiPASS (called a
dedicated fax line). The MultiPASS will receive fax calls only (no voice calls).
FaxTel mode
You can receive both faxes and voice calls with the same telephone line.
The MultiPASS will determine if the incoming call is a fax or a voice call.
If it is a fax, it will receive the fax without ringing. If it is a voice call,
the MultiPASS will ring to alert you to pick up the telephone. (You must
attach a telephone to the MultiPASS to select this mode.)
Manual mode
The telephone attached to the MultiPASS will ring for both faxes and voice
calls. If the incoming call is a fax, you must press the START/COPY button
to receive the fax. (You must attach a telephone to the MultiPASS to select
this mode.)
Answer Machine mode
You can attach either a telephone with an answering machine or an
answering machine only to your MultiPASS. When you turn on the
answering machine, the MultiPASS can either receive a fax or record
a voice message.

Registration Tips for AT T WorldNet Service
During installation of the AT&T WorldNet Service software, you will be
prompted to dial into the network to complete the registration process.
Make sure your modem line and phone line are available.
During registration, you will need to supply your name, address, and valid credit
card number, and choose an account-information security word, e-mail name,
and e-mail password. You will also be requested to select your preferred price
plan at this time.
We advise that you use all lowercase letters when assigning an e-mail ID security
code, because your ID will be easier to remember.
If you make a mistake and exit the registration process prematurely, all you need
to do is click on Create New Account. Do not click on Edit Existing Account.
When choosing your local access telephone number, you will be given several
options. Choose the one nearest to you. Please note that calling a number within
your area code does not guarantee that the call is free.
Choose the Plan That's Right for You
AT&T WorldNet Service provides Internet access for everyone, whether at home or at
work. In addition to making the time you spend online productive and fun, we're also
committed to making it affordable. Choose one of two price plans: unlimited usage
access or hourly usage access. You can obtain the latest pricing information during
online registration. No matter which plan you use, we're confident that once you take
advantage of everything AT&T WorldNet Service has to offer, you'll wonder how you
got along without it.
