Set up distinctive ring
Ring-pattern or distinctive-ring service is available through some local telephone companies. The service allows you to have more than one telephone number on a single line. Each telephone number has a unique ring pattern, so that you can answer voice calls and the product can answer fax calls.
If you subscribe to a ring-pattern service with a telephone company, you must set the product to answer the correct ring pattern. Not all countries/regions support unique ring patterns. Contact the telephone company to determine if this service is available in your country/region.
If you do not have ring-pattern service and you change the ring-pattern settings to something other than the default, All Rings, the product might not be able to receive faxes.
The settings are as follows:
| All Rings: The product answers any calls that come through the telephone line.
|Single: The product answers any calls that produce a single-ring pattern.
|Double: The product answers any calls that produce a double-ring pattern.
|Triple: The product answers any calls that produce a triple-ring pattern.
|Double&Triple: The product answers any calls that produce a double-ring or triple-ring pattern.
To change ring patterns for call answering, complete the following steps:
|On the control panel, press Setup.
|Use the arrow buttons to select Fax setup, and then press OK.
|Use the arrow buttons to select Fax Recv. setup, and then press OK.
|Use the arrow buttons to select Answer Ring Type, and then press OK.
|Use the arrow buttons to select the ring pattern that you want, and then press OK.
|After product installation is complete, ask someone to send a fax to you in order to verify that the ring-pattern service is working correctly.
