Multi-Function Center
PROBLEM
CAUSE & REMEDY
I cannot install the Multi-Function
Center software.
¡Before installing the Multi-Function Center software, make sure of the
following.
¡—The facsimile unit is connected to the serial port (COM 1 or 2) of
your PC (see page 79).
¡—The facsimile unit is turned on.
¡—There is at least 14 MB of available storage on the hard disk drive
of your PC.
¡—Windows 3.1, 3.11 or Windows 95 is running.
¡—All other Windows applications are closed.
¡—The PC link feature (#14) on the facsimile unit is set to ON (see
page 92).
¡There is a problem in your gender changer, converter, divider or
switch box. Check their operating instructions.
¡The cmos setup on the com port you are using is set to OFF. Set to
ON (contact your computer manufacturer or dealer).
¡The com port is competing with the mouse or network card, or uses
the same IRQ as MFC-Print. Change the IRQ setting (refer to your
Windows user manual).
¡Your PC has a built-in modem and the device manager may have
assigned the modem to the wrong com port. Change the com port
from built-in modem to MFC (refer to your PC user manual).
¡The Multi-Function Center software was installed incorrectly. Install
the MFC software by following the operating instructions or label on
the floppy disk.
¡The disks or disk driver are not normal. Check them using the scan
disk command (refer to your Windows user manual). Or try another
disk to confirm that there is no problem with the disk drive.
¡You installed the Multi-Function Center software in a compressed
drive. Use other drive or reduce the compression of the compressed
drive.
The Multi-Function Center does
not work.
¡The device driver switched because another application software was
installed using the same com port as the Multi-Function Center after
installing the Multi-Function Center driver. Reinstall by setting the com
port for the Multi-Function Center to an unused com port.
If you have to use the same com port as the other application
software, change the connection of the driver as follows.
1. Open the Message Center.
2. Select Properties from the File menu.
3. Select the desired port from the PC Connection group.
4. Select the Test button.
¡The PC link feature (#14) on the facsimile unit is set to OFF. Set to
ON (see page 92).
The facsimile unit cannot print
documents from your PC.
¡“Panasonic MFC Print” was not selected as your printer. Select it.
¡The print manager of Windows 3.1 was not used. Test using Notepad
in Windows 3.1 or Wordpad in Windows 95.

FCC Information
List of FCC requirements and information!
If required by the telephone company, inform them
of the following.
¡FCC Registration No.:
(found on the bottom of the unit)
¡Ringer Equivalence No.:
(found on the bottom of the unit)
¡The particular telephone line to which the
equipment is connected.
This unit must not be connected to a coin operated
line. If you are on a party line, check with your
local telephone company.
Ringer Equivalence Number (REN):
This REN is useful in determining the quantity of
devices you may connect to your telephone line
and still have all of those devices ring when your
telephone number is called. In most but not all
areas, the sum of the REN’s of all devices
connected to one line should not exceed five (5.0).
To be certain of the number of devices you may
connect to your line, as determined by the REN,
you should contact your local telephone company
to determine the maximum REN for your calling
area.
In the event that terminal equipment causes harm
to the telephone network, the telephone company
should notify the customer, if possible, that service
may be stopped. However, where prior notice is
impractical, the company may temporarily cease
service providing that they:
a) Promptly notify the customer.
b) Give the customer an opportunity to correct the
problem with their equipment.
c) Inform the customer of the right to bring a
complaint to the Federal Communication
Commission pursuant to procedures set out in
FCC Rules and Regulations Subpart E of Part
68.
The Telephone Company may make changes in its
communications facilities, equipment operations, or
procedures where such action is reasonably
required in the operation of its business and is not
inconsistent with the rules and regulations in FCC
Part 68. If such changes can be reasonably
expected to render any customer terminal
equipment incompatible with telephone company
communications facilities, or require modification or
120
alteration of such terminal equipment, or otherwise
materially affect its use or performance, the
customer shall be given adequate notice in writing,
to allow the customer an opportunity to maintain
uninterrupted service.
CAUTION:
Any changes or modifications not expressly
approved by the party responsible for compliance
could void the user’s authority to operate this
device.
When programming emergency numbers and/or
making test calls to emergency numbers:
1. Remain on the line and briefly explain to the
dispatcher the reason for the call before
hanging up.
2. Perform such activities in the off-peak hours;
such as early morning or late evenings.
This telephone provides magnetic coupling to
hearing aids.
NOTE:
This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits for a Class B digital device,
pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits
are designed to provide reasonable protection
against harmful 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 does cause
harmful interference to 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

1-year limited warranty1 parts & labor

» Free overnight replacement2
and repair program
The Panasonic Fax Advantage Consumer Service Program.
Panasonic knows that if your fax machine is not up and running, neither
is your business. That’s why we created the Panasonic Fax Advantage
Program. Included at no extra cost with the purchase of a Panasonic
Fax Machine, the Fax Advantage Program can provide a free
replacement unit2 overnight if your original unit is in need of repair.
Here’s how it works:
1. If you have a problem with your fax while it is covered by the oneyear limited warranty1, call our toll-free help-line at 1-800-HELPFAX.
2. Talk to one of our technical experts to diagnose your problem over
the phone.
3. If repairs are necessary and you are entitled to service under the
terms and conditions of the limited warranty3, we will send a refurbished replacement unit to you overnight or second business day
delivery, depending on the time of your call.
A second option available under our one-year limited warranty is to
mail-in or carry-in your fax to one of our Regional Service centers,
where the unit will be repaired and returned to you.
Instructions
If you choose to receive a replacement unit under the Fax Advantage
Program, Panasonic will provide a replacement unit which will be
completely refurbished, quality-tested by Panasonic technicians and
individually hand-inspected before it is shipped to you. You will keep the
replacement unit and send the original unit to us in the replacement
unit’s box. UPS will pick up the unit at no charge to you, should it be
determined that you are entitled to warranty service. A proof-ofpurchase must be included with the returned product. Any unit that is
replaced by Panasonic and not shipped with proper proof-of-purchase
by you will be subject to a minimum $100.00 charge. The original unit
must be properly packaged in the same manner as the replacement
unit, utilizing the packing materials provided. Damage due to improper
or inadequate packing will be charged to you as an out-of-warranty
cost.
If our 1-800-HELPFAX technicians determine that your unit may be an
“out-of-box failure”4, we will attempt to provide you with a factory-new
replacement unit5. You must ship a copy of your receipt with your original unit to verify that you purchased the unit within 10 days prior to your
1-800-HELPFAX call.
Requirements
You must give our technicians a valid credit card number (Discover,
VISA, Master Card, or American Express/Optima). Product that is not
returned to Panasonic by 10 business days after shipment of the
replacement product will be charged to your credit card account at
Panasonic’s Suggested Retail Price (see dealer for details). If your
original unit is not eligible for warranty service, your card will be
charged for the non-warranty repair of the unit at Panasonic’s current
rate for parts and labor and for any shipping charges associated with
this program. If you do not wish to pay out-of-warranty repair costs, you
will be responsible for returning the replacement unit to Panasonic and
for paying all shipping charges associated with this program including
the overnight delivery of the replacement product to you, shipment of
the problem unit to Panasonic, shipment of the replacement unit back
to Panasonic and the return of your original unit back to you. Credit
status will be verified prior to sending the replacement product.
1. See dealer for limited warranty details.
2. Replacement unit is refurbished.
3. Replacement program excludes Puerto Rico and is subject to termination at any
time without advance notice.
4. “Out-of-box failure” is an inoperable unit that was purchased no more than 10 days
prior to your 1-800-HELPFAX call, and would otherwise qualify for warranty service
under the terms and conditions of the limited warranty.
5. Panasonic reserves the right to send a refurbished unit.
