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.

Somehow I have a bell icon on the screen at the bottom left with the words OFF beside it and now the phone does not ring only the ring on the fax/printer. Thanks Margaret


Hi margaret, is there a ringer switch either on the phone handset, or is there an option in the the fax settings to go directly to print. The issue sounds fairly straight forward, somewhere the phone ringer, or the settings for the phone to ring has been inadvetently switched off. Some investigation shoud bear fruit

Yes, you can use a regular 2 line cordless phone with your 4 line corded systems. The only concern is when you put someone on hold. The on hold function may not release if you have different makes of phone. If you already have Panasonic get a Panasonic 2 line cordless phone with the on hold feature.

Yes, you can just take line 3 and plug it into your new fax. I might suggest looking into a fax to email service instead of buying a new fax. If you receive more than send it's a great way to save on the phone line and paper.

Digital phones are pretty secure, no one will accidentally hear your conversations. It is not encrypted but I think it would be perfectly fine in your office.

Is it possible to change from pulse into tone on Panasonic phone KX A145? I can't find this function on the phone. Does anyone know if it exists at all? Is there any general rule that may apply to all...


On this side of the pond, a KX-145 is a drum for a KX-F3000 fax machine with phone ! If that happens to be yours, under the * key, there's a stencil that says TONE. If you are trying to convert all calls to tone, then try the panasonic web site and look at the nameplate on the machine for whatever it happens to be.

If the search engine screwed up, then look to use the # key or a tone/pulse switch on the side of the phone.
