1 - 8 INTRODUCTION
About fax machines
Fax tones and handshake
When someone is sending a fax, the fax machine sends fax calling
tones (CNG tones). These are quiet, intermittent beeps every
4-seconds. You’ll hear them after you dial and press Fax Start and
they will continue for about 60 seconds after dialling. During that
time, the sending machine must begin the “handshake” with the
receiving machine.
Each time you use automatic procedures to send a fax, you are
sending CNG tones over the phone line. You’ll soon learn to listen for
these quiet beeps each time you answer a phone on your fax line, so
you will know if you are receiving a fax message.
The receiving fax responds with fax receiving tones, which are loud,
chirping sounds. A receiving fax chirps for about 40 seconds over the
phone line, and the LCD shows RECEIVE.
If the fax machine is set to the FAX ONLY mode, it will answer every
call automatically with fax receiving tones. If the other person hangs
up, the fax machine will continue to send the “chirps” for about 40
seconds, and the LCD continues to show RECEIVE. To cancel the
receiving, press Stop/Exit.
The fax ‘handshake’ is the time in which the sending machine’s CNG
tones and the receiving machines “chirps” overlap. This must be for
at least 2 to 4 seconds, so the fax machines can understand how
each is sending and receiving the fax. The handshake cannot begin
until the call is answered, and the CNG tones only last for about 60
seconds after the number is dialled. So it is important for the
receiving machine to answer the call in as few rings as possible.
When you have an external Telephone Answering Device (TAD)
on your fax line, your TAD will decide the number of rings before
the call is answered.
Pay special attention to the directions for connecting a TAD in
this chapter. (See Connecting an external telephone answering
device (TAD) on page 1-11.)
Page: 22
INTRODUCTION 1 - 9
ECM (Error Correction Mode)
The Error Correction Mode (ECM) is a way for the fax machine to
check a fax transmission while it is in progress. ECM transmissions
are only possible between machines that both have this feature. If
they do, you may send and receive fax messages that are
continuously being checked by the machine.
The fax machine must have enough memory for this feature to work.

Connections
Connecting an external telephone
You can connect a separate telephone to your machine, as shown
below.
.
Whenever this external phone (or TAD) is in use, the screen displays
EXT. TEL IN USE, and, if the fax handset is lifted, an alarm sounds.
To disconnect the call on the external phone and switch to the fax,
lift the handset and press Tel (for FAX-T94 only) or
Speaker Phone (for FAX-T96 only).

INTRODUCTION 1 - 11
Connecting an external telephone answering
device (TAD)
Sequence
You may choose to connect an answering device. However, when
you have an external TAD on the same telephone line as the
machine, the TAD answers all calls and the machine “listens” for fax
calling (CNG) tones. If it hears them, the machine takes over the call
and receives the fax. If it doesn’t hear CNG tones, the machine lets
the TAD continue playing your outgoing message so your caller can
leave you a voice message.
The TAD must answer within four rings (the recommended setting is
two rings). The machine cannot hear CNG tones until the TAD has
answered the call, and with four rings there are only 8 to 10 seconds
of CNG tones left for the fax “handshake”. Make sure you carefully
follow the instructions in this guide for recording your outgoing
message. We do not recommend using the toll saver feature on your
external answering machine if it exceeds five rings.
If you do not receive all your faxes, reduce the Ring Delay
setting on your external TAD.
Page: 25
1 - 12 INTRODUCTION
Connections
The external TAD must be connected as shown above.
1 Set your external TAD to one or two rings. (The machine’s Ring
Delay setting does not apply.)
2 Record the outgoing message on your external TAD.
3 Set the TAD to answer calls.
4 Set the Receive Mode to TAD:ANSWER MACH. (For FAX-T94
only). On FAX-T96, set the Receive Mode to TAD:MSG MGR.
(See Choosing the Receive Mode on page 5-1.)
Do not connect a TAD elsewhere on the same phone line
(unless you have the Distinctive Ring service).

INTRODUCTION 1 - 13
Recording outgoing message (OGM) on an external TAD
Timing is important in recording this message. The message sets up
the ways to handle both manual and automatic fax reception.
1 Record 5 seconds of silence at the beginning of your message.
(This allows the fax machine time to listen for the fax CNG tones
of automatic transmissions before they stop.)
2 Limit your message to 20 seconds.
3 End your 20-second message by giving your Fax Receive Code
for people sending manual faxes. For example:
“After the beep, leave a message or send a fax by pressing
51 and Start.”
We recommend beginning your OGM with an initial 5-second
silence because the fax machine cannot hear fax tones over a
resonant or loud voice. You may try omitting this pause, but if the
fax machine has trouble receiving, then you must re-record the
OGM to include it.
Page: 27
1 - 14 INTRODUCTION
Using extension telephones (For U.K. only)
It may be that your premises are already wired with parallel extension
telephones, or you intend to add extension telephones to your line,
in addition to your machine. While the simplest arrangement is
straightforward parallel connection, there are some reasons as to
why this arrangement will cause unsatisfactory service, the most
obvious of which is inadvertent interruption of a facsimile
transmission by someone picking up an extension telephone in order
to make an outgoing call. Additionally, fax receive may not operate
reliably in such a simple configuration.
This machine may also be set to make a delayed transmission (i.e. a
transmission at a pre-set time). This pre-set job may coincide with
someone picking up an extension handset.
Such problems can easily be eliminated however, if you arrange
modification of your extension wiring circuit, such that extension
devices are connected “downstream” of your machine, in a
master/slave configuration. In such a configuration, this machine can
always detect whether a telephone is in use, thus it will not attempt
to seize the line during that time. This is known as “telephone
off-hook detection.”
The inadvisable configuration is shown in figure 1 below, and the
recommended master/slave configuration is shown in figure 2.
This new connection configuration can be arranged by contacting
BT, Kingston upon Hull Telecommunications, your PABX maintainer
or a qualified telephone installation company as appropriate. Simply
explained, the extension telephone circuit should be terminated on a
normal modular plug (BT 431A style), which in turn should be
inserted into the modular socket of the white “T”-shaped connector
provided as part of the line cord assembly.
Page: 29
1 - 16 INTRODUCTION
Multi-Line Connections (PABX)
Most offices use a central telephone system. While it is often
relatively simple to connect the machine to a key system or a PABX
(Private Automatic Branch Exchange), we suggest that you contact
the company that installed your telephone system and ask them to
connect the Fax machine for you. It is advisable to have a separate
line for the Fax machine. You can then leave the Fax machine in FAX
ONLY mode to receive faxes any time of day or night.
If the Fax machine is to be connected to a multi-line system, ask your
installer to connect the unit to the last line on the system. This
prevents the unit from being activated each time a telephone call is
received.
If you are Installing the Fax machine to Work with a PABX
1 It is not guaranteed that the unit will operate correctly under all
circumstances with a PABX. Any cases of difficulty should be
reported first to the company that handles your PABX.
2 If all incoming calls will be answered by a switchboard operator,
it is recommended that the Receive Mode be set to MANUAL. All
incoming calls should initially be regarded as telephone calls.
Custom features on your phone line
If you have Voice Mail, Call Waiting, RingMaster, an answering
service, an alarm system or other custom feature on one phone line
it may create a problem with the operation of your fax machine. (See
Custom features on a single line. on page 13-7.)
As with all fax units, this machine must be connected to a two
wire system. If your line has more than two wires, proper
connection of the Fax machine cannot be made.

User-friendly programming
The fax machine is designed to be easy to use with LCD on-screen
programming using the navigation key. User-friendly programming
helps you take full advantage of all the menu selections the fax
machine has to offer.
Since your programming is done on the LCD, we have created
step-by-step on-screen instructions to help you program the fax
machine. All you need to do is follow the instructions as they guide
you through the menu selections and programming options.
Menu table
You can probably program the fax machine without the User’s Guide.
But to help you understand the menu selections and options that are
found in the fax machine programs, use the Menu table on page 3-4.
Memory Storage
If there is a power failure, you will not lose your menu settings
because they are stored permanently. Temporary settings (such as
Contrast, Overseas Mode, and so on) will be lost. You may also have
to reset the date and time.
On-Screen Programming
You can program the fax machine by pressing Menu/Set
followed by the menu numbers.
For example to set RESOLUTION to FINE:
Press Menu/Set, 3, 4 and or to select FINE.
Press Menu/Set.

It is important that you enter the fax and telephone numbers in the
internationally standardised format, i.e. in accordance with the
following strict sequence:
■ The “+” (plus) character (by pressing key)
■ Your Country Code (e.g. “44” for the United Kingdom, “41” for
Switzerland)
■ Your local area code minus any leading “0” (“9” in Spain)
■ A space
■ Your number on the local exchange, using spaces to aid
readability as appropriate.
As an example, if the machine is installed in the United Kingdom and
the same line is to be used for both fax and voice calls, and your
national telephone number is 0161 444 5555, then you must set the
fax and telephone number parts of your station ID as:
