Instructions to customer
Installation
Attached to this apparatus is an approval label. This label is evidence that it is a “Permitted Attachment”
which has been authorised to be connected to your telephone service.
Conditions relating to connection and operation of this Permitted Attachment are contained in
Telecommunications General By-Law 220 (5).
You are authorised to install this Permitted Attachment yourself by plugging it into the line socket of any
regular telephone. You may connect it in place of your existing telephone or to any spare telephone
socket installed in your premises.
To disconnect your existing telephone you must first remove its plug from the line socket. You can then
insert the plug of your Permitted Attachment into the socket and use your equipment.
If the plug of your existing telephone cannot be readily removed, you will have to remove the screw
securing it. To do this proceed as follows:
1. Loosen screw “A” sufficiently to remove the socket cover. (See Fig. 1.)
2. Remove screw “B” and withdraw the plug. (See Fig. 2.)
3. Replace screw “B”. (See Fig. 3.) Ensure that it screws completely into the socket recess. (If the screw
is too long, increase the hole depth or replace the screw with one 5 mm shorter.)
4. Replace socket cover and tighten screw “A”. (See Fig. 4.)

If you are satisfied with the operation of your telephone service after plugging in your Permitted
Attachment, your installation is completed.
You will be unable to connect this Permitted Attachment if your telephone service consists only of a wall
phone or an old style telephone which is not connected by means of a modern plug and socket. In such
cases a new socket will need to be installed.
Should the Permitted Attachment not operate when plugged into a socket, it is either faulty or unsuitable
for operation with your telephone service. It should be returned to the store where purchased.
Service difficulties
If at any time a fault occurs on your telephone service carry out the following checks before you call for
service:
L Disconnect the Permitted Attachment and try using the service with the normal telephone.
L If the telephone service then operates satisfactorily, the fault is in your Permitted Attachment. Leave the
Permitted Attachment disconnected and report the fault to its supplier or agent to arrange for repair.
L If when using the telephone the service is still faulty, report the fault to “Service Difficulties and Faults”
for attention.
You are required to keep this Permitted Attachment in good working order while it is connected to your
telephone service. Its construction or internal circuit must not be modified in any way without permission.
WARNING
This cordless telephone system does not incorporate provision for secrecy of conversations.
Appropriately tuned radio equipment and other cordless telephone systems in close proximity may be
used by a third party to monitor and possibly interrupt conversations in progress when this system is on
radio operation.

Operation
9.1 Operating additional units
9.1.1 Additional cordless handsets
Up to 6 cordless handsets can be registered to a single
base unit. Additional cordless handsets will give you the
freedom to, for example, have an intercom call with
another cordless handset while a third cordless handset
is on an outside call.
Important:
L The additional cordless handset model
recommended for use with this unit is noted on
page 9. If other model cordless handset is used,
certain operations (cordless handset settings,
base unit settings, etc.) may not be available.
9.1.2 Additional base units
Cordless handsets can be registered to up to 4 base
units, allowing you to add additional base units and
extend the area in which your cordless handset(s) can
be used. If a cordless handset moves out of range of its
base unit when “Auto” is selected on base unit
selection (page 59), it will look for another base unit to
make or receive calls. A base unit and the cordless
handsets it communicates with is called a “radio cell”.
Note:
L Calls will be disconnected when the cordless
handset moves from one radio cell to another.
9.2 Registering a cordless
handset to a base unit
The included cordless handset and base unit are
preregistered. If for some reason the cordless handset is
not registered to the base unit (for example, w flashes
even when the cordless handset is near the base unit),
register the cordless handset manually.
After purchasing an additional cordless handset, register
it to the base unit. Ensure that the additional cordless
handset is switched ON. If it is not ON, press and hold
{ih} for few seconds to turn the cordless handset ON.

Problem
A blank sheet is ejected.
Cause & Solution
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, and the receiving reduction rate is not programmed
correctly. Program the proper rate in feature #36 (page 53).
L The other party placed the document in their fax machine facing the wrong
way. Check with the other party.
The printing quality is poor.
Please do not reuse the ink film!
Please use genuine Panasonic replacement film. Refer to page 9 for further
details.
L The thermal head is dirty. Clean it (page 77).
L If documents can be copied properly, the unit is working normally. The other
party may have sent a faint document or there may be something wrong
with the other party’s machine. Ask them to send a clearer copy of the
document or to check their fax machine.
L Some paper has instructions recommending which side to print on. Try
turning the recording paper over.
L You may have used paper with cotton and/or fibre content that is over 20%,
such as letterhead or resume paper.
Recording paper frequently
misfeeds.
L Clean the document feeder rollers, recording paper feeder and rubber flap
(page 76).
Letters on the received
document are distorted.
L If your line has special telephone services such as call waiting, the service
may have been activated during fax reception. Connect the unit to a line that
does not have these services.
I cannot receive documents
using the cordless handset.
L The memory is full of received documents due to a lack of recording paper,
a lack of ink film or a recording paper jam. Install paper (page 16), install ink
film (page 14) or remove the jammed paper (page 74).
When an extension telephone
is connected, I cannot receive
documents by pressing
{*}{#}{9}.
L You must set remote fax activation to ON (feature #41 on page 53)
beforehand.
L You may have changed the remote fax activation code from {*}{#}{9}
(default setting). Verify the remote fax activation code (feature #41 on page
53).
L The memory is full of received documents due to a lack of recording paper,
a lack of ink film or a recording paper jam. Install paper (page 16), install ink
film (page 14) or remove the jammed paper (page 74).
The other party complains
that they cannot send a
document.
L The receiving mode is set to TEL mode. Receive the document manually
(page 39) or change the receiving mode to TAM/FAX mode (page 40) or
FAX ONLY mode (page 40).
L The memory is full of received documents due to a lack of recording paper,
a lack of ink film or a recording paper jam. Install paper (page 16), install ink
