How to change Sagem PhoneFax 4840 ink film roll

In order for the Sagem PhoneFax 4840 to receive or copy documents a suitable ink film must be installed. The Sagem PhoneFax 4840 uses the TTR480 ink film rolls which are capable of printing 140 documents. When you puchase the fax machine it comes with a free ‘trial’ ink film which will only print a few pages before needing to be replaced with a TTR480 ink roll. The icons: on the fax machine’s display show how much ink film has been used and how much is left. The ink film consumption information is stored on the removable Plug’n'Print card. Each TTR-480 ink roll comes complete with a new Plug’n'Print card which must be installed with each ink roll change. The only instance in which the fax machine will only work without a Plug’n'Print card is with the ‘trial’ ink film, supplied when the machine was puchased. If the Plug’n'Print card is missing or if it is not replaced the message CHANGE CARD appears on the display. If the ink film is finished or if there is no ink film in the fax machine, the red display lamp flashes, and the following message appears: REFILL INKFILM.
