The Fax Switch
The Fax Switch feature allows you to have two telephone numbers on one incoming line.
There is one telephone number for the line and another telephone number for a Fax Switch peripheral (e.g. fax machine).
To use the Fax Switch, you must subscribe to your telephone company for Distinctive Ringing†. The telephone company will then provide you with an additional telephone number (for your Fax Switch peripheral) which will have a slightly different ring. The 9516 will use the two ring types to determine whether an incoming call is for the telephone or the peripheral. The peripheral should be set to answer after three or more rings.
Note: If Long Distance Ringing† is available in your area, long distance calls will be sent to the Fax Switch peripheral. Also, you cannot use the Fax Switch feature and the Special Greeting feature at the same time. The 9516 must be configured so the Fax Switch peripheral is connected to pins 3 and 4 of jack number 2. See Connecting an optional fax machine or modem on
page 4 for more information.

Note:
If you subscribe to your telephone company for Call Waiting services, your Fax Switch peripheral may lose data or get disconnected if someone calls while your fax is receiving data. We recommend that you do not subscribe to the Call Waiting service from your telephone company if you are using the Fax Switch feature.

I have a fax-100 machine. it wont send or receive at all. the display reads 'memory full'. i dont have an advanced user guide. help please.


I don't know what brand fax 100 is. But if the memory is full you might try the following.
Unplug the power form your unit for 24 hours and then restart it. The memory should clear itself. ( you really have to unplug it not just shut off the switch if it has one).
There are reasons why the memory got full in the first place. Either the phone line was off and transmitted documents never sent or the receive function was disabled due to a paper jam, out of paper, or toner or a spent drum.
Good luck.

L200 not functioning


Have you got anything else within the line with the fax machine that is maybe holding the line like a credit card machine or a phone? if so remove everything and just plug in the machine to a straight line.

This could be due to a memory problem, you need to do a function memory clear and this might clear your fault

hope this helps.

Need the driver for it


You can't use it as a printer, it has no connections for the PC.
It's just a Phone/Fax/Copier.

Drops connection after connect, sends 2-3 pages


The fall-back required for transmission over VOIP is not available on this machine. It is a service mode function and can only be set by a technician. However, VOIP is so iffy for transmission that you may require fall-back to 4800 or even 2400. I have found that forcing fall-back more than 2 steps doesn't work.Also the Line equalisation can't be set as there is only 3 settings, 1.8;3.6; and 7.2 Km. Who knows how far to set VOIP, could be 3000KM. I had more success using a very old fax machine sending at 2400BPS that I could set the dip switches. Takes all sorts of changes to have success and then next time you try, it's changed again.
