Do you still need a manual? If so, this will definitely help you.. All you have to do is click "Go to View Download page" and you will get the manual in PDF. Please note that it is for both models 170 and 190.

In the absence of an owner's manual, when you press the "help" button the "thing" will print a page with some instructions on it as to which buttons to push to set up the various functions. That should get you started. Some of the other stuff depends on what kind of connection you have with your phone company. Is it on a seperate fax line? Do you have smart ring or do both fax and phone calls come through on the same number? The five buttons (rectangular) under the display let you set up as a telephone only, fax only, fax/phone, or manual operating. Start with the "mode" button and go from there. Good luck.
