Question about Office Equipment & Supplies
How do I change the number of rings to answer on the fax in my iRC3170?
I have been told I need to go into service mode to do this?
I want to change it to not answer until 5 rings of the incoming line. (I have a modem/winfax on a PC which answers after 2 rings to sort out the junk mail faxes)
I believe, you just have to open the doors on the control pannel. It will show you more funcation of the fax. There should be a botton that say's "Data Entery" press it once and the display changes. Next you use the arrow bottons on the control pannel to move in that mode. Scroll down to Fax Setting and press the OK botton and scroll some more till you see number of rings and change it from 5 to 2 rings. Then press OK or Set, the press Stop/Rest twice and you should be done. It's alot hard to explain then doing it. It's called panich botton pushing..... Good luck
