Customer Question
I have an older...

I have an older model Panasonic KX-FP205C plain paper fax with digital answering system. It still works well but we have just bought from Costco a new Panasonic multi phone system will it's own answering machine on the base station. We would like to use the old KX-FP just as a phone and need to disable (turn off) the answering system. How do we do that?

Technician's Assistant: What's the exact make and model of your printer, and can you guesstimate how old it is?

KX-FP205C about 12 years old

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

We don't have a trouble shooting problem we just need to know how to turn off the answer function on the old machine so that it doesn't conflict with the new system
