Keypad has "shorted out"? No buttons are working

Someone got a really bad static shock off the fax machine yesterday. Now the keypad isn't working. There is a dial tone on the handset, and we can receive faxes, but no buttons are working.

How do I set up the fax to print a confirmation (comm journal) for every fax sent?

Press Function, enter 74 from keypad and hit the middle SET button in circle.

If it's not (default is 3 - only when unsuccessful), then enter 2, hit SET
Press Function again to go out of the menu.
That's it :)

Need to change name and number

Press the MENU button and press 7, then 2 on the numbers keypad. You can then use the keypad to change the fax header. Press the keypad numbers corresponding to the letters you need. It will cycle through lower case first, then upper case. Press the RIGHT arrow button to advance one space between letters.

After static shock, keypad on fax machine is not working...everything else ok

Most office machines are properly grounded and don't suffer from static problems as severe as this. The machine is not repairable. Before you replace the machine, make sure that your electrical outlets are properly grounded. Then buy a line conditioner that will protect against this.
