Changing the rings-to-answer setting
When the answer mode is set to Automatic, the all-in-one rings-to-answer setting determines the
number of times the telephone rings before the all-in-one answers an incoming call.
If the all-in-one is connected to a line that receives both fax and voice calls (a shared line) and that
also uses an answering machine, you might need to adjust the rings-to-answer setting. The number
of rings-to-answer for the all-in-one must be greater than the rings-to-answer on the answering
machine. This allows the answering machine to answer the incoming call and record a message if it
is a voice call. When the answering machine answers the call, the all-in-one listens to the call and
automatically answers it if it detects fax tones.
The default setting for rings-to-answer is five for the U.S. and Canada, and two for other countries/
