Store numbers on my Brother machine for easy dialling from the control panel.

You can store One Touch and Speed Dial numbers on your Brother machine for easy dialling. If you lose electrical power, One Touch and Speed Dial numbers stored in your Brother machine's memory will not be lost.

 

 

 

SECTION A: STORING ONE TOUCH NUMBERS

 

Your machine has 11 One Touch keys where you can store 22 fax or telephone numbers for automatic dialling.

 

 

One-Touch keys are not the dial pad keys. They are the 11 keys located on the left side of the control panel. To store One Touch numbers from the Brother machine's control panel, follow these steps:

  1. Press the One-Touch key where you want to store the number. If a number is not stored there, the LCD displays "Register Now?". Press 1 to choose Yes.

    To access numbers 12 through 22, hold Shift and press the appropriate One-Touch key.

     
  2. Enter the fax or telephone number you want to store.

    - The number can be up to 20 digits long.

    - You can use Redial/Pause to insert a 3.5-second (for UK: 2.8-second) pause in the stored number.

    - You can enter multiple pauses by repeatedly pressing Redial/Pause.

     
  3. Press OK.

     
  4. Do one of the following:
     
    • To store the number without a name, go to STEP 5.

       
    • Use the dial pad to enter a name.

      The name can be up to 15 characters long.

 

 

The numbers 2 through 9 have letters listed on the key. If you press the key 1 time, you choose the first letter, 2 times you choose the 2nd letter, 3 times the 3rd letter, and for the number 7 and 9 key, 4 times the 4th letter.

- If you need to enter a character that is assigned to the same key as the previous character, press the Right arrow key to move the cursor to the right. (Example: To enter the name "ED", press the number 3 key two times to choose "E". Press the Right arrow key to advance to the next space. Press the 3 key one time to choose "D".)

- If you entered a letter incorrectly and want to change it, press the Left or Right arrow key to move the cursor to the incorrect letter and press Clear. All letters above and to the right of the cursor will be deleted. Re-enter the correct character. You can also back up and type over incorrect letters.

Special characters and symbols are entered by using either the *, #, or 0 key. To enter a special character, press the *, #, or 0 key and then press the Left or Right arrow key until a cursor appears on the desired symbol. Then, press OK to choose it. The symbol will appear on the LCD display. These special characters and symbols are available for Text only, not for phone numbers.
