<p>In general, the audio devices use audio cables such as RCA
stereo headphones, or telephone cables, connection to other devices. In case
you need a USB device to a stereo phone plug, you should use a single adapter
cable to connect the USB cable will convert to a stereo phone. <br />
<p>1. Connect the USB end of the headphone adapter to the USB
port of your audio device. <br />
<p>2. Connect one end of the headset to your male cable to the
headphone port of the headset USB adapter. <br />
<p>3. Connect the other end of your headphone male to male
cable to the headphone port of your stereo plug. Now you can connect to any
port to connect to stereo. <br />
If you are getting "no dial tone" as an error on your fax machine, it means that you have the telephone cord plugged into the wrong port on it.
Turn the printer around so that you can see the back of it. If you look closely, there should be three ports to choose from in which you connect a telephone cord. Sometimes they put a little white plastic piece in the ports to keep them clean during shipping ect. If this is the case, go ahead and remove them now.
If you look closely at each port , you might notice that they have text or pictures right above or below them to tell you which one to use. let me explain; if you have one telephone line and wish to use it for both fax and voice calls - you will need more than one port. That's why they mark them.
One of the ports should say "line" or have a picture with a funny little symbol on it. This is the port that you would use if you want to fax someone using your printer. You plug your phone cord into this port on your printer.
One of the ports should say "phone" or have a picture of a telephone by it. This port is used when you want to share a single phone line with both your fax machine and telephone used for making voice calls. To split your line between both fax and phone, you plug your phone cord from the wall into the port marked "line" and take a second phone cord and plug it into the port on your printer marked "phone" and the other end of that line goes into your telephone (voice line).
The last port should say "line 2" or similar and usually has no picture next to it. This is an additonal port to share with a second phone line.
To correct your problem of "no dial tone", plug your phone cord into the socket on the wall and put the other end into the port on the printer that says "line". Now lets test the connection.
Put a piece of paper into your printer, press the fax button and dial any phone number using 1 and then the area code followed by the phone number and press 'start" or "ok" to begin the fax. If you have chosen the right port to connect your telephone cord, you will hear a dial tone first, and then dialing of the numbers you chose. If you cannot hear a dial tone before your numbers begin, then you have not chosen the right port. If this is the case, remove the phone cord from the port you have chosen and try another until you do hear the dial tone.
Do not try to go from your phone jack into your telephone and then use a second port on your telephone to connect a second phone cord that is plugged into your printer/fax. A second phone port on your telephone is most likely for a second phone line to use for voice calls. The majority of phones for residential use do not have a built in splitter that works like a fax/printer does. If you try to use a second port on your phone to split to your fax machine, it usually will not work. Follow the instructions as listed above to re-route your line and correct the problem.
MAGIC JACK USERS:
While magic jack is great for making free long distance calls, it is not suggested for use with a fax machine. if your trying to use your magic jack phone line to fax it usually does not work.
CHECK THE TELEPHONE NO. Verify that you are dialing the number correctly. (i know its funny to ask)
Verify that you are dialing the number correctly. You must dial all of the numbers required to make a phone call from the same line. This includes numbers that must be dialed to access an outside line or to access long distance services.
TRY DIALING FROM THE FRONT PANEL manually dial the number from the front panel of the fax.
If you have been using a speed dial or are faxing from the computer, print the page to be faxed and manually dial the number from the front panel of the fax. If the fax can be sent when dialed from the front panel, recreate the speed dial setting and insert some pauses.
Check the connections
Check the TELEPHONE LINE
Make sure that you have plugged the phone cord directly and securely into the wall jack and into the back port of the fax product. The fax port on your product is marked "Line," "To Wall Jack," or with a wall jack symbol.
Make sure the Line Interface Unit (box that the phone cord plugs into) is fully seated into the back of the fax product.
Remove the SPLITTER
Remove any other devices from the line such as splitters, credit card machines, or telephone answering machines.
Can try sending the Fax on Another Line
CHECK WITH DIFFERENT CABLE Try using a different telephone cord.
1 .Connect the phone cable that came with the printer to the back of your modem to the port that says tele 1.
2 . connect the other end of the phone cable to the port on the printer that says "1-line"
3. connect the phone cable or cord that came with your telephone line to the back of the printer port that says "2-EXT" and the other end to the back of your telephone ..
A solution to your problem would be to use usb cable to connect the scanner to the POS system. I have had a similar issue in the past where the IBM pos system did not like the cable that the customer had and we've got around this by using usb instead.
I hope this helps you although it may not be the kind of answer that you were looking for,
Okay, this is what happens when you put your USB cable into the external device jack next to the telephone line jack (instead of the USB port). Once you plug the stuff in correctly, the problem goes away.

If your battery goes COMPLETELY dead, which it will do if phone is not turned OFF and not used for a long period of time, you will need to JUMP START it using you OEM SMT-5600 AC charger. Other AC chargers will not work for this purpose and neither will a USB port.
You can JUMP START the battery using a USB port by cutting off a USB cable to expost the red and black power USB PORT power pins 1 and 4. Remove your SMT-5600 battery and while the modified USB cable is plugged into your USB PORT, hold the BLACK wire to the negative (-) terminal and the RED wire to the positive (+) terminal for about a minute. Replace the battery in the phone and connect the phone to a USB PORT using a standard USB cable. The SMT-5600 charging light may not register for a while, but will eventually light amber to show it is charging, assuming your phone is recoginzed by your computer.
Note some mini USB cables DONOT carry the USB power leads through to the phone, only data. If you have a very thin USB cable, be suspicious the power leads are not being carried in the cable.
Since the USB PORT power is limited to 100ma it cannot hurt the battery, but will insert enough current into a totally flat batter to cause the battery to register a voltage large enough to alllow USB PORT charging, typically 3.7VDC.
