In order to program this information into your fax modem, you should complete the setup of your fax software before sending messages.

Instructions for IC CS-03 certified equipment

1 The Industry Canada label identifies certified equipment. This certification means that the equipment meets certain telecommunications network protective, operational and safety requirements as prescribed in the appropriate Terminal Equipment Technical Requirements document(s). The Department does not guarantee the equipment will operate to the user’s satisfaction. Before installing this equipment, users should ensure that it is permissible to be connected to the facilities of the local telecommunications company. The equipment must also be installed using an acceptable method of connection., The customer should be aware that compliance with the above conditions may not prevent degradation of service in some situations. Repairs to certified equipment should be coordinated by a representative designated by the supplier. Any repairs or alterations made by the user to this equipment, or equipment malfunctions, may give the telecommunications company cause to request the user to disconnect the equipment. Users should ensure for their own protection that the electrical ground connec- tions of the power utility, telephone lines and internal metallic water pipe system, if present, are connected together. This precaution may be particularly important in rural areas. CAUTION: Users should not attempt to make such connections themselves, but should contact the appropriate electric inspection authority, or electrician, as appropriate. 2 The user manual of analog equipment must contain the equipment’s Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) and an explanation notice similar to the following: The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) of the modem, which can vary.

Notes for Users in Australia and New Zealand Modem warning notice for Australia

Modems connected to the Australian telecoms network must have a valid Austel permit. This modem has been designed to specifically configure to ensure compli- ance with Austel standards when the country/region selection is set to Australia. The use of other country/region setting while the modem is attached to the Australian PSTN would result in you modem being operated in a non-compliant manner. To verify that the country/region is correctly set, enter the command ATI which displays the currently active setting. To set the country/region permanently to Australia, enter the following command sequence: AT%TE=1 ATS133=1 AT&F AT&W AT%TE=0

ATZ

Failure to set the modem to the Australia country/region setting as shown above will result in the modem being operated in a non-compliant manner. Consequently, there would be no permit in force for this equipment and the Telecoms Act 1991 prescribes a penalty of $12,000 for the connection of non-permitted equipment.

Notes for use of this device in New Zealand

❑ The grant of a Telepermit for a device in no way indicates Telecom acceptance of responsibility for the correct operation of that device under all operating conditions. In particular the higher speeds at which this modem is capable of operating depend on a specific network implementation which is only one of many ways of delivering high quality voice telephony to customers. Failure to operate should not be reported as a fault to Telecom. ❑ In addition to satisfactory line conditions a modem can only work properly if: a/ it is compatible with the modem at the other end of the call and b/ the application using the modem is compatible with the application at the other end of the call - e.g., accessing the Internet requires suitable software in addition to a modem. ❑ This equipment shall not be used in any manner which could constitute a nuisance to other Telecom customers., ❑ Some parameters required for compliance with Telecom’s PTC Specifications are dependent on the equipment (PC) associated with this modem. The associated equipment shall be set to operate within the following limits for compliance with Telecom Specifications: a/ There shall be no more than 10 call attempts to the same number within any 30 minute period for any single manual call initiation, and b/ The equipment shall go on-hook for a period of not less than 30 seconds between the end of one attempt and the beginning of the next. c/ Automatic calls to different numbers shall be not less than 5 seconds apart. ❑ Immediately disconnect this equipment should it become physically damaged, and arrange for its disposal or repair. ❑ The correct settings for use with this modem in New Zealand are as follows: ATB0 (CCITT operation) AT&G2 (1800 Hz guard tone) AT&P1 (Decadic dialing make-break ratio =33%/67%) ATS0=0 (not auto answer) ATS10=less than 150 (loss of carrier to hangup delay, factory default of 15 recommended) ATS11=90 (DTMF dialing on/off duration=90 ms) ATX2 (Dial tone detect, but not (U.S.A.) call progress detect) ❑ When used in the Auto Answer mode, the S0 register must be set with a value of 3 or 4. This ensures: (a) a person calling your modem will hear a short burst of ringing before the modem answers. This confirms that the call has been successfully switched through the network. (b) caller identification information (which occurs between the first and second ring cadences) is not destroyed. ❑ The preferred method of dialing is to use DTMF tones (ATDT...) as this is faster and more reliable than pulse (decadic) dialing. If for some reason you must use decadic dialing, your communications program must be set up to record numbers using the following translation table as this modem does not implement the New Zealand “Reverse Dialing” standard. Number to be dialed: 0123456789Number to program into computer: 0987654321Note that where DTMF dialing is used, the numbers should be entered normally., ❑ The transmit level from this device is set at a fixed level and because of this there may be circumstances where the performance is less than optimal. Before reporting such occurrences as faults, please check the line with a standard Telepermitted telephone, and only report a fault if the phone performance is impaired. ❑ It is recommended that this equipment be disconnected from the Telecom line during electrical storms. ❑ When relocating the equipment, always disconnect the Telecom line connec- tion before the power connection, and reconnect the power first. ❑ This equipment may not be compatible with Telecom Distinctive Alert cadences and services such as FaxAbility. NOTE THAT FAULT CALLOUTS CAUSED BY ANY OF THE ABOVE CAUSES MAY INCUR A CHARGE FROM TELECOM

General conditions

As required by PTC 100, please ensure that this office is advised of any changes to the specifications of these products which might affect compliance with the relevant PTC Specifications. The grant of this Telepermit is specific to the above products with the marketing description as stated on the Telepermit label artwork. The Telepermit may not be assigned to other parties or other products without Telecom approval. A Telepermit artwork for each device is included from which you may prepare any number of Telepermit labels subject to the general instructions on format, size and colour on the attached sheet.

General Precautions

Toshiba computers are designed to optimize safety, minimize strain and withstand the rigors of portability. However, certain precautions should be observed to further reduce the risk of personal injury or damage to the computer. Be certain to read the general precautions below and to note the cautions included in the text of the manual.

Stress injury

Carefully read the Instruction Manual for Safety & Comfort. It contains information on prevention of stress injuries to your hands and wrists than can be caused by extensive keyboard use. Chapter 3, Getting Started, also includes information on work space design, posture and lighting that can help reduce physical stress.

Heat injury

Avoid prolonged physical contact with the computer. If the computer is used for long periods, its surface can become very warm. While the temperature will not feel hot to the touch, if you maintain physical contact with the computer for a long time (if you rest the computer on your lap or if you keep your hands on the palm rest, for example) your skin might suffer low-heat injury. Also, if the AC adaptor has been used for a long time, avoid prolonged physical contact with the AC adaptor. It can become very warm.

Pressure or impact damage

Do not apply heavy pressure to the computer or subject it to strong impact. Exces- sive pressure or impact can cause damage to computer components or otherwise cause malfunctions.

PC card overheating

Some PC cards can become hot with prolonged use. Overheating of a PC card can result in errors or instability in the PC card operation. Also be careful when you remove a PC card that has been used for a long time. li, User's Manual lii,

Setting up your work space

Establishing a comfortable work site is important for you and your computer. A poor work environment or stressful work habits can result in discomfort or serious injury from repetitive strain to your hands, wrists or other joints. Proper ambient conditions should also be maintained for the computer’s operation. This section discusses the following topics: ❑ General conditions ❑ Placement of the computer and peripheral devices ❑ Seating and posture ❑ Lighting ❑ Work habits

General conditions

In general, if you are comfortable, so is your computer, but read the following to make sure your work site provides a proper environment. ❑ Make sure there is adequate space around the computer for proper ventilation. ❑ Make sure the AC power cord connects to an outlet that is close to the computer and easily accessible. ❑ The temperature should be 5 to 35 degrees Centigrade (41 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit) and the relative humidity should be 20 to 80 percent. ❑ Avoid areas where rapid or extreme changes in temperature or humidity may occur. ❑ Keep the computer free of dust, moisture, and exposure to direct sunlight. ❑ Keep the computer away from heat sources, such as electric heaters. ❑ Do not use the computer near liquids or corrosive chemicals. ❑ Do not place the computer near objects that create strong magnetic fields (e.g., stereo speakers). ❑ Do not operate the computer in close proximity to a mobile phone.

Placement of computer

Position the computer and peripheral devices to provide comfort and safety. ❑ Set the computer on a flat surface at a comfortable height and distance. The display should be no higher than eye level to avoid eye strain. 3-2 GETTING STARTED, ❑ Place the computer so that it is directly in front of you when you work and make sure you have adequate space to easily operate other devices. ❑ Allow adequate space behind the computer to let you freely adjust the display. The display should be angled to reduce glare and maximize visibility. ❑ If you use a paper holder, set it at about the same height and distance as the computer.

Seating and posture

The height of your chair in relation to the computer and keyboard as well as the support it gives your body are primary factors in reducing work strain. Refer to the following tips and to figure 3-1. BELOW EYE LEVEL FOOT REST 90O ANGLES Figure 3-1 Posture and positioning of the computer ❑ Place your chair so that the keyboard is at or slightly below the level of your elbow. You should be able to type comfortably with your shoulders relaxed. ❑ Your knees should be slightly higher than your hips. If necessary, use a foot rest to raise the level of your knees to ease pressure on the back of your thighs. ❑ Adjust the back of your chair so it supports the lower curve of your spine. ❑ Sit straight so that your knees, hips and elbows form approximately 90 degree angles when you work. Do not slump forward or lean back too far. 3-3 GETTING STARTED, User's Manual

Lighting

Proper lighting can improve legibility of the display and reduce eye strain. ❑ Position the computer so that sunlight or bright indoor lighting does not reflect off the screen. Use tinted windows, shades or other screen to eliminate sun glare. ❑ Avoid placing the computer in front of bright light that could shine directly in your eyes. ❑ If possible, use soft, indirect lighting in your computer work area. Use a lamp to illuminate your documents or desk, but be sure to position the lamp so that it does not reflect off the display or shine in your eyes.

Work habits

A key to avoiding discomfort or injury from repetitive strain is to vary your activities. If possible, schedule a variety of tasks into your work day. If you must spend long periods at the computer, finding ways to break up the routine can reduce stress and improve your efficiency. ❑ Sit in a relaxed posture. Good positioning of your chair and equipment as described earlier can reduce tension in your shoulders or neck and ease back strain. ❑ Vary your posture frequently. ❑ Occasionally stand up and stretch or exercise briefly. ❑ Exercise and stretch your wrists and hands a number of times during the day. ❑ Frequently, look away from the computer and focus your eyes on a distant object for several seconds, for example 30 seconds every 15 minutes. ❑ Take frequent short breaks instead of one or two long breaks, for example, two or three minutes every half hour. ❑ Have your eyes examined regularly and visit a doctor promptly, if you suspect you might be suffering from a repetitive strain injury. A number of books are available on ergonomics and repetitive strain injury or repetitive stress syndrome. For more information on these topics or for pointers on exercises for such stress points as hands and wrists, please check with your library or book vendor. Also refer to the computer’s Instruction Manual for Safety & Comfort. 3-4 GETTING STARTED,

Chapter 5 The Keyboard

The computer’s keyboard layouts are compatible with a 101/102-key enhanced keyboard. By pressing some keys in combination, all the 101/102-key keyboard functions can be executed on the computer. The number of keys on your keyboard depends on which country/region’s key- board layout your computer is configured with. Keyboards for numerous languages are available. There are five types of keys: typewriter keys, keypad overlay, function keys, soft keys and cursor control keys.

Typewriter keys

The typewriter keys, produce the upper- and lowercase letters, numbers, punctua- tion marks, and special symbols that appear on the screen. There are some differences, however, between using a typewriter and using a computer keyboard: ❑ Letters and numbers produced in computer text vary in width. Spaces, which are created by a “space character,” may also vary depending on line justifica- tion and other factors. ❑ The lowercase l (el) and the number 1 (one) are not interchangeable on computers as they are on a typewriter. ❑ The uppercase O (oh) and the 0 (zero) are not interchangeable. ❑ The Caps Lock function key locks only the alphabetic characters in upper- case while the shift lock on a typewriter places all keys in the shifted position. ❑ The Shift keys, the Tab key, and the BkSp (backspace) key perform the same function as their typewriter counterparts but also have special computer functions. 5-1 THE KEYBOARD,

Care and use of the battery pack

The battery pack is a vital component of portable computing. Taking proper care of it will help ensure longer operating time on battery power as well as a longer life for your battery pack. Follow the instructions in this section carefully to ensure safe operation and maximum performance.

Safety precautions

1. Be very careful not to short-circuit the battery pack. Contacting both terminals with a metal object can cause injury, fire or damage to the battery pack. 2. Do not overcharge, reverse charge, mutilate or disassemble the battery pack. Any one of those actions could release toxic materials, hydrogen and/or oxygen or other electrolytic substances or cause an increase in the battery pack’s surface temperature. 3. Do not expose the battery pack to fire; the battery pack could explode. 4. Battery packs contain toxic substances. Do not dispose of them with ordinary trash. Dispose of battery packs only in accordance with local ordinances. Always cover the metal terminals with insulating tape to avoid short circuits. 5. If the battery pack has leaked or been vented, it should be replaced immediately. Use protective gloves when handling a damaged battery pack. 6. When it becomes necessary to replace the battery pack, it must be replaced only by an identical battery pack from the same manufacturer. 7. Do not expose the battery pack terminals to any metal object other than the computer contacts. Wrap it or place it in a plastic bag when transporting it. 8. When you install the battery pack, you should hear a click when it is seated properly. 9. Charge the battery pack only in the computer or in a battery pack charger designated as an approved option. 10. Reverse polarity should be avoided with all battery packs. The battery pack is designed so that it cannot be installed in reverse polarity. 6-7 POWER AND POWER-UP MODES, User's Manual

Charging the batteries

When the power in the battery pack becomes low, the Battery indicator flashes orange indicating that only a few minutes of battery power remain. If you continue to use the computer while the Battery indicator flashes, the computer enables Resume mode (so you don’t lose data) and automatically turns off. You must recharge a battery pack when it becomes discharged.

Procedures

To recharge a battery pack while it is installed in the computer, connect the AC adaptor to the DC IN socket and plug the other end into a working outlet. The Battery indicator glows orange when the battery is being charged. CAUTION: Use only the computer connected to an AC power source or the optional TOSHIBA Battery charger to charge the battery pack. Do not attempt to charge the battery pack with any other charger.

Time

The following table shows the approximate time required to fully charge a dis- charged battery. Charging time (hours) Battery type Power on Power off Main battery pack 3.0 to 9.0 or longer 2.5 Secondary battery pack 3.0 to 7.5 or longer 2.5 RTC battery 8 Doesn’t charge

Battery charging notice

The battery may not charge right away under the following conditions: ❑ The battery is extremely hot or cold. If the battery is extremely hot, it might not charge at all. Also, to ensure the battery charges to its full capacity, charge the battery at room temperature of 10° to 30°C (50° to 88°F). ❑ The battery is nearly completely discharged. Leave the AC adaptor connected for a few minutes and the battery should begin charging. 6-8 POWER AND POWER-UP MODES, Care and use of the battery pack The Battery indicator may show a rapid decrease in battery operating time when you try to charge a battery under the following conditions: ❑ The battery has not been used for a long time. ❑ The battery has completely discharged and been left in the computer for a long time. ❑ A cool battery is installed in a warm computer. In such case, follow the steps below. 1. Fully discharge the battery by leaving it in the computer with the power on until the power automatically shuts off. 2. Plug in the AC adaptor. 3. Charge the battery until the Battery indicator glows green. Repeat the steps two or three times until the battery recovers normal capacity.

Monitoring battery capacity

Remaining battery power can be monitored in the Power Save Modes window in Power Saver of Windows. NOTES: 1. Wait at least 16 seconds after turning on the computer before trying to monitor the remaining operating time. The computer needs this time to check the battery’s remaining capacity and to calculate the remaining operating time, based on the current power consumption rate and remaining battery capacity. The actual remaining operating time may differ slightly from the calculated time. 2. With repeated discharges and recharges, the battery’s capacity will gradually decrease. Therefore, an often used, older battery will not operate for as long as a new battery even when both are fully charged. In this case, Power Saver Utility will indicate a 100% charge for both the old and new battery, but the displayed estimated time remaining will be shorter for the older battery. 6-9 POWER AND POWER-UP MODES, User's Manual

Maximizing battery operating time

A battery’s usefulness depends on how long it can supply power on a single charge. How long the charge lasts in a battery depends on: ❑ How you configure the computer, for example, whether you enable battery- power saving options. The computer provides a battery save mode to conserve battery power. This mode has the following options: • Processing speed • Display auto off • HDD auto off • System auto off • LCD Brightness ❑ How often and how long you use the hard disk and the diskette drive. ❑ How much charge the battery contained to begin with. ❑ How you use optional devices, such as a PC card, to which the battery supplies power. ❑ Enabling Resume mode conserves battery power if you are frequently turning the computer off and on. ❑ Where you store your programs and data. ❑ Closing the display when you are not using the keyboard saves power. ❑ Operating time decreases at low temperatures. ❑ The condition of the battery terminals. Make sure the battery terminals stay clean by wiping them with a clean dry cloth before installing the battery pack.

Retaining data with power off

When you turn off your computer with fully charged batteries, the batteries retain data for the following approximate time periods: Battery pack (3600 mAh) 5 days (Resume mode) 30 days (Boot mode) RTC battery 1 month 6-10 POWER AND POWER-UP MODES, Care and use of the battery pack

Extending battery life

To maximize the life of your battery pack: ❑ At least once a month, disconnect the computer from a power source and operate it on battery power until the battery pack fully discharges. Before doing so, follow the steps below. 1. Turn off the computer’s power. 2. Disconnect the AC adaptor and turn on the computer’s power. If it does not turn on go to step 4. 3. Operate the computer on battery power for five minutes. If the battery pack has at least five minutes of operating time, continue operating until the battery pack is fully discharged. If the battery LED flashes or there is some other warning to indicate a low battery, go to step 4. 4. Connect the AC adaptor to the computer and the power cord to a power outlet. The DC IN LED should glow green, and the Battery LED should glow orange to indicate that the battery pack is being charged. If the DC IN indicator does not glow, power is not being supplied. Check the connections for the AC adaptor and power cord. 5. Charge the battery pack until the Battery LED glows green. ❑ If you have extra battery packs, rotate their use. ❑ If you will not be using the system for an extended period, more than one month, remove the battery pack. ❑ Disconnect the AC adaptor when the battery is fully charged. Overcharg- ing makes the battery hot and shortens life. ❑ If you are not going to use the computer for more than eight hours, disconnect the AC adaptor. ❑ Store spare battery packs in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight. 6-11 POWER AND POWER-UP MODES, User's Manual

Replacing the battery pack

When the battery pack reaches the end of its operating life you will need to install a new one. The life of the battery pack is generally about 500 recharges. If the Battery indicator flashes orange shortly after fully recharging the battery, the battery pack needs to be replaced. You might also replace a discharged battery pack with a charged spare when you are operating your computer away from an AC power source. This section explains how to remove and install battery packs.

Removing the battery pack

To replace a discharged battery pack, follow the steps below. CAUTION: When handling battery packs, be careful not to short circuit the terminals. Also do not drop, hit or otherwise apply impact; do not scratch or break the casing and do not twist or bend the battery pack. 1. Save your work. 2. Turn the computer’s power off. Make sure the Power indicator is off. 3. Remove all cables connected to the computer. 4. Turn the computer upside down with the back of the computer facing you. 5. Slide the battery pack lock to the unlock position. 6. Slide the battery release latch to free the battery pack for removal. 7. Pull the battery pack forward to remove it. CAUTION: For environmental reasons, do not throw away a spent battery pack. Please return spent battery packs to your TOSHIBA dealer. 6-12 POWER AND POWER-UP MODES, Replacing the battery pack BATTERY PACK

Chapter 9 Troubleshooting

TOSHIBA designed the computer for durability. However, should problems occur, following the procedures in this chapter can help to determine the cause. All readers should become familiar with this chapter. Knowing what might go wrong can help prevent problems from occurring.

Problem solving process

Resolving problems will be much easier if you observe the following guidelines: ❑ Stop immediately when you recognize a problem exists. Further action may result in data loss or damage. You may destroy valuable problem-related information that can help solve the problem. ❑ Observe what is happening. Write down what the system is doing and what actions you performed immediately before the problem occurred. If you have a printer attached, print a copy of the screen using PrtSc. The questions and procedures offered in this chapter are meant as a guide, they are not definitive problem solving techniques. Many problems can be solved simply, but a few may require help from your dealer. If you find you need to consult your dealer or others, be prepared to describe the problem in as much detail as possible.

Preliminary checklist

Consider the simplest solution first. The items in this checklist are easy to fix and yet can cause what appears to be a serious problem. ❑ Make sure you turn on all peripheral devices before you turn on the computer. This includes your printer and any other external device you are using. ❑ Before you attach an external device, turn the computer off. When you turn the computer back on it recognizes the new device. ❑ Make sure all options are set properly in the setup program. ❑ Check all cables. Are they correctly and firmly attached? Loose cables can cause signal errors. ❑ Inspect all connecting cables for loose wires and all connectors for loose pins. 9-1

TROUBLESHOOTING

, User's Manual ❑ Check that your diskette is correctly inserted and that the diskette’s write protect tab is correctly set. Make notes of your observations and keep them in a permanent error log. This will help you describe your problems to your dealer. If a problem recurs, the log will help you identify the problem faster.

Analyzing the problem

Sometimes the system gives clues that can help you identify why it is malfunctioning. Keep the following questions in mind: ❑ Which part of the system is not operating properly: keyboard, diskette drives, hard disk drive, printer, display. Each device produces different symptoms. ❑ Is the operating system configuration set properly? Check the configuration options. ❑ What appears on the display screen? Does it display any messages or random characters? Print a copy of the screen if you have a printer attached. Look up the messages in the software and operating system documentation. Check that all connecting cables are correctly and firmly attached. Loose cables can cause erroneous or intermittent signals. ❑ Do any icons light? Which ones? What color are they? Do they stay on or blink? Write down what you see. ❑ Do you hear any beeps? How many? Are they long or short? Are they high pitched or low? Is the computer making any unusual noises? Write down what you hear. Record your observations so you can describe them to your dealer. Software The problems may be caused by your software or diskette. If you cannot load a software package, the media (usually a diskette) may be damaged or the program might be corrupted. Try loading another copy of the software. If an error message appears while you are using a software package, check the software documentation. These documents usually include a problem solving section or a summary of error messages. Next, check any error messages in the OS documentation. Hardware If you cannot find a software problem, check your hardware. First run through the items in the preliminary checklist above. If you still cannot correct the problem, try to identify the source. The next section provides checklists for individual components and peripherals. 9-2

Self test

When the computer starts up, the self-test will be run automatically, and the following will be displayed: In Touch with Tomorrow

TOSHIBA

This message remains on the screen for a few seconds. If the self test is successful, the computer tries to load the operating system. Depending on how the Boot Priority is set in the Hardware Setup or TSETUP program, the computer tries to load first from drive A then from drive C, or first from drive C then from drive A. If any of the following conditions are present, the self test failed: ❑ The computer stops and does not proceed to display information or messages. ❑ A beep sounds, and after a few seconds no new messages appear. ❑ Random characters appear on the screen, and the system does not function normally. ❑ The screen displays an error message. Turn off the computer and check all cable connections. If the test fails again, contact your dealer.

Power

When the computer is not plugged into an AC adaptor, the battery pack is the primary power source. However, your computer has a number of other power resources, including intelligent power supply and Real Time Clock battery. These resources are interrelated and any one could affect apparent power problems. This section provides check lists for AC adaptor and the main battery. If you cannot resolve a problem after following them, the cause could lie with another power resource. In such case, contact your dealer. 9-4

Appendix C AT Commands

In most cases, you will not need to type AT commands manually. However, there might be some occasions when you will need to do so. This chapter describes AT commands for data mode. Fax and voice commands are taken care of by application software. The format for entering AT commands is: ATXn where X is the AT command, and n is the specific value for that command. After you type in the command press Enter. Any command issued is acknowledged with a response in either text or numeric values known as result codes. All commands and command-values accepted by the modem are described in this section; any entry other than those listed results in an error. +++ Escape sequence The escape sequence allows the modem to exit data mode and enter on-line command mode. While in on-line command mode, you can communicate directly to your modem using AT commands. Once you finish, you can return to data mode using the ATO command. A pause, the length of which is set by Escape Guard Time (S12), must be completed after an escape sequence is entered, This pause prevents the modem from interpreting the escape sequence as data. The value of the escape sequence character may be changed using register S2.

A/ Repeat last command

This command repeats the last command string entered. Do not precede this command with an AT prefix or conclude it by pressing Enter. C-1 APPENDIX C, User's Manual A Answer command This command instructs the modem to go off-hook and answer an incoming call.

Dn Dial

This command instructs the modem to dial a telephone number. Enter n (the telephone number and any modifiers) after the ATD command. Any digit or symbol (0-9, *, #, A, B, C, D) may be dialed as touch-tone digits. Characters such as spaces, hyphens, and parentheses do not count. They are ignored by the modem, but you may want to include them to make the number and modifiers easier to read. The following may be used as phone number modifiers: P Pulse dialing. T Touch-tone dialing (default). , Pause during dialing. Pause for time specified in Register S8 before processing the next character in the dial string. W Wait for dial tone. Modem waits for a second dial tone before processing the dial string. @ Wait for quiet answer. Wait for five seconds of silence after dialing the number. If silence is not detected, the modem sends a NO ANSWER result code back to the caller. ! Hook flash. Causes the modem to go on-hook for 0.5 seconds and then return to off-hook. C-2 APPENDIX C,

M3 Speaker is on until the carrier is detected, except when dialing. Result Codes: OK n=0,1,2,3 ERROR Otherwise

Nn Modulation handshake

This command controls whether or not the local modem performs a negotiated handshake at connection time with the remote modem when the communication speed of the two modems is different. N0 When originating or answering, this is for handshake only at the communication standard specified by S37 and the ATB command. N1 When originating or answering, begin the handshake at the communication standard specified by S37 and the ATB command (default). During handshake, a lower transmission speed may be selected.

Appendix D S-registers

S-registers contain the settings that determine how a number of functions of the internal modem operate. For example, how many times to let the telephone ring before the modem answers and how long to wait before it hangs up if a connec- tion fails. You can also customize certain AT commands such as the escape sequence and command line termination. The contents of the registers are changed automatically when you modify corresponding settings in your communication software. If you choose, however, you can display and edit the contents of the registers manually when the modem is in command mode. If the value is out of the acceptable range, then an error is generated. This chapter describes the settings for each S-register.

S-register values

The format for displaying the value of an S-register is: ATSn? where n is the register number. After you type in the register press Enter. The format for modifying the value of an S-register is: ATSn=r where n is the register number, and r is the new register value. After you type in the register and its new value press Enter. NOTE: Some registers vary from one country/region to another. D-1 APPENDIX D, User's Manual

S0 Auto answer ring number

This register determines the number of rings the modem will count before automatically answering a call. Enter 0 (zero) if you do not want the modem to automatically answer at all. When disabled, the modem can only answer with an ATA command. Range: 0-255 Default: 0 Units: rings

S1 Ring counter

This register is read only. The value of S1 is incremented with each ring. If no ring occurs over a six-second interval, this register is cleared. Range: 0-225 Default: 0 Units: rings

S2 AT escape character (user defined)

This register determines the ASCII values used for an escape sequence. The default is the + character. The escape sequence allows the modem to exit data mode and enter command mode when on-line. Values greater than 127 disable the escape sequence. Range: 0-255, ASCII decimal Default: 43 Units: ASCII

S3 Command line termination character

This register determines the ASCII values as the carriage return character. This character is used to end command lines and result codes. Range: 0-127, ASCII decimal Default: 13 (carriage return) Units: ASCII D-2 APPENDIX D,

Appendix D S4 Response formatting character (user defined)

This register determines the ASCII value used as the line feed character. The modem uses a line feed character in command mode when it responds to the computer. Range: 0-127, ASCII decimal Default: 10 (line feed) Units: ASCII

S5 Command line editing character (user defined)

This register sets the character recognized as a backspace and pertains to asynchronous only. The modem will not recognize the backspace character if it is set to a value that is greater than 32 ASCII. This character can be used to edit a command line. When the echo com- mand is enabled, the modem echoes back to the local DTE the back- space character, an ASCII space character, and a second backspace character. This means a total of three characters are transmitted each time the modem processes the backspace character. Range: 0-127, ASCII decimal Default: 8 (backspace) Units: ASCII

S6 Wait before dialing

This register sets the length of time, in seconds, that the modem must wait (pause) after going off-hook before dialing the first digit of the telephone number. The modem always pauses for a minimum of two seconds, even if the value of S6 is less that two seconds. The wait for dial tone call progress feature (W dial modifier in the dial string) will override the value in register S6. This operation, however, may be affected by some ATX options according to country/region restrictions. In some countries/regions, S6 will set dial tone detect time. Range: 3-255 Default: 3 Units: seconds D-3 APPENDIX D, User's Manual

S7 Connection completion time-out

This register sets the time, in seconds, that the modem must wait before hanging up because carrier is not detected. The timer is started when the modem finishes dialing (originate), or goes off-hook (answer). In originate mode, the timer is reset upon detection of an answer tone if allowed by county restriction. The timer also specifies the wait for silence time for the @ dial modifier in seconds. S7 is not associated with the W dial modifier. Range: 1-255 Default: 50 Units: seconds

S8 Comma pause time

This register sets the time, in seconds, that the modem must pause when it encounters a comma (,) in the dial command string. In some countries/regions, S8 will set both wait before dialing and comma pause time. Range: 0-255 Default: 2 Units: seconds

S11 DTMF dialing speed

This register determines the dialing speed which is prefixed for each country/region. Range: 50-255 Default: 95 Units: .001 seconds

S12 Escape guard time

This register sets the value (in 20 millisecond increments) for the required pause after the escape sequence. Range: 0-255 Default: 50 Units: .02 seconds D-4 APPENDIX D,

Appendix E V.90

The TOSHIBA internal modem uses V.90 technology. The modem is capable of downstream speeds of 56Kbps (kilobits per second) when connected to an Internet service provider that supports V.90. As with any modem, the actual throughput (speed of data transfer) depends on analog telephone line conditions, which can vary considerably. Therefore, many users will experience throughput in the range of 32-44Kbps under normal telephone line conditions. Upstream data flows at the V. 34 rate. NOTE: V.90 rates can be achieved only when one V.90 capable modem is connected to another. The TOSHIBA Internal modem will select automatically V.34 if the remote modem lacks V.90 capability or if a combination of network and/or phone line conditions prevent V.90 connection.
