Caller ID
4.6 Caller ID service
This unit is compatible with Caller ID service
offered by your local telephone company. To
use this feature, you must subscribe to Caller
ID service.
Important:
L This unit is designed in accordance with
the ETS (European Telecommunication
Standard) and only supports the basic
CLIP (Calling Line Identification
Presentation) features.
L This unit will only display the caller’s
telephone number and name.
L This unit will not support future additional
telephone services.
L Depending on the service of the local
telephone company, the date/time of the
call or the caller’s name may not be
displayed.
Make sure the following ring setting is set to
2 or more rings beforehand.
– FAX ring setting (feature #06 on page 64)
4.6.1 How Caller ID is displayed
When an outside call is received, the calling
party’s telephone number or name will be
displayed. You then have the option of whether
or not to answer the call.
The unit will automatically store caller
information (telephone number, name, date and
time of the call) of the last 50 different callers.
Caller information is stored by the most recent to
the oldest call. When the 51st call is received,
the oldest call is deleted.
Caller information can be viewed on the display
one item at a time (page 36) or confirmed by
printing the Caller ID list (page 104).
Note:
L When caller information is received and it
matches a telephone number stored in the
unit’s phonebook:
– The stored name will be displayed.
– The cordless handset will use the ringer
indicator colour and type assigned to the
caller’s category.
L If the unit is connected to a PBX (Private
Branch Exchange) system, caller information
may not be received properly. Consult your
PBX supplier.
L If the unit cannot receive caller information,
the following will be displayed:
“OUT OF AREA”/“Out of Area”: The caller
dialled from an area which does not provide
Caller ID service.
“PRIVATE CALLER”/“Private Caller”:
The caller requested not to send caller
information.
To confirm caller information by printing
the Caller ID list
– To print manually, see page 104.
– To print automatically after every 50 new
calls, activate feature #26 (page 66).
Private category
Private categories can help you identify who is
calling by using different ringer indicator colours
and ringer types for different categories of
callers.
You can assign items in the cordless handset
phonebook to a category (page 31), change the
category names (Friends, Family, etc., page 73),
and search for phonebook items by category
(page 32). When a call is received from a caller
assigned to a category, the ringer indicator
colour (page 73) and ringer type (page 72) you
select is used.
Call Waiting Caller ID
This is a service of your service provider and will
only operate if you have subscribed to this
service. When you hear a call waiting tone
during a conversation, the display will show the
second caller’s information. You can answer the
second call, keeping the first call on hold. Please
consult your service provider for details of this
service.
Note:
L The second caller’s information will not be
displayed when:
– the answering machine is recording an
incoming message,
– another telephone on the same line is in
use, or
– you are sending or receiving a fax
document.

service from your phone
company
The Distinctive Ring service is a service offered
by your local telephone company. This service
provides several telephone numbers for a single
telephone line, and the ring pattern differs
according to which telephone number the call
was addressed to. Originally, this service was
designed for the purpose of allowing different
ring patterns to distinguish which number the call
was addressed to.
This unit distinguishes the different ring patterns.
If the ring pattern is one which is assigned for a
fax, the fax machine will automatically start fax
reception. This service is convenient if you wish
to have a different number for fax in a single
telephone line.
To use this service, you must subscribe to
the Distinctive Ring service offered by your
local telephone company.

fax machine will keep on ringing.
6.3 Using three or more
phone numbers in a single
telephone line
You may wish to use three or more phone
numbers for a single telephone line to distinguish
which number the call was addressed to. A

12.3.4 Fax – sending
Problem
Cause & Solution
I cannot send documents.
L The other party’s fax machine is busy or has run out of recording
paper. Try again.
L The other party does not have a fax machine. Check with the other
party.
L The other party’s fax machine failed to answer the fax
automatically. Send the fax manually (page 40).
I cannot send a fax
overseas.
L Use the overseas transmission mode of feature #23 (page 65).
L Add two pauses at the end of the telephone number or dial
manually.
The other party complains
that letters on their
received document are
distorted or not clear.
L If your line has special telephone services such as call waiting, the
service may have been activated during fax transmission. Connect
the unit to a line that does not have these services.
L Another telephone on the same line is off the hook. Hang up the
telephone and try again.
L Try copying the document. If the copied image is clear, there may
be something wrong with the other party’s machine.
L Adjust the scan contrast using feature #58 (page 67).
The other party complains
that black lines, white
lines or smudges appear
on their received
document.
L The scanner glass, white plate or rollers are dirty with correction
fluid, etc. Clean them (page 102). Please do not insert a document
before correction fluid has dried completely.
12.3.5 Fax – receiving
Problem
Cause & Solution
I cannot receive
documents.
L The ink film is empty. Replace the ink film with a new one (page
17).
I cannot receive
documents automatically.
L The receiving mode is set to TEL mode.
Change the receiving mode to TAM/FAX mode (page 47) or FAX
ONLY mode (page 49).
L The time taken to answer the call is too long. Decrease the number
of rings before the unit answers a call (page 59, or feature #06 on
page 64).
L The greeting message is too long. Record a shorter message
(page 55, 57).
The display shows
“CONNECTING.....”, but
faxes are not received.
L The receiving mode is set to FAX ONLY mode and the incoming
call is not a fax. Change the receiving mode to TEL mode (page
46) or TAM/FAX mode (page 47).
A blank sheet is ejected.
L If a blank sheet is ejected after the received document is printed
out, the size of the document sent by the other party is as large as,
or larger than, the recording paper, or the receiving reduction rate
is not programmed correctly. Program the proper rate in feature
#36 (page 66).
L The other party placed the document in their fax machine the
wrong way. Check with the other party.

– Paper that will melt, vaporize, discolour,
scorch or emit dangerous fumes near 200
°C, such as vellum paper. These
materials may transfer onto the fusing
roller and cause damage.
– Moist paper
Some paper only accepts print on one side.
Try using the other side of the paper if you are
not happy with the print quality or if
misfeeding occurs.
For proper paper feeding and best print
quality, we recommend using long-grained
paper.
Do not use paper of different types or
thickness at the same time. This may cause a
paper jam.
Avoid double-sided printing.
Do not use paper printed from this unit for
double-sided printing with other copiers or
printers. This may cause a paper jam.
To avoid curling, do not open paper packs
until you are ready to use the paper. Store
unused paper in the original packaging, in a
cool and dry location.
