Question about Samsung SF-5100 Plain Paper Laser Fax

1 Answer

My SF-5100 has stoped receiving faxes

From a couple of days so far, my SF-5100 fax machine does not receive any fax despite the fact that I know that some people are trying to send me some documents.

From time to time I just get a "Rx" message on the display, followed by a "Wait a moment" one.

Telephone line is working Ok, and I have cleared up the memory of the machine, but no case.

Any solution?

    Thanks Leroyal, but:

    > Make sure you are set for AUTO RECEIVE.

    Already tested ... and no case

    > Unplug power cord and re-connect.

    Already done ... and no case

    > Do you have a DSL phone line?

    Yes, but from some 5 years ago or so, and the fax had worked ok until now.

Make sure you are set for AUTO RECEIVE.

Unplug power cord and re-connect. Do you have a DSL phone line?

My SF5100P will not receive faxes when hooked up to answering machine. It is set up to "ans/fax" but I must turn off ans machine to receive.


The answering machine MUST be programmed to allow probably at least six rings for the FAX to grab the line, otherwise the answering machine will grab the line first. Answering machines and FAXes don't like eachother...

Can send but not receive faxes


No identification is not the problem. It sounds like you have it set to "manual receive" rather than "auto receive"

Not printing faxes


It appears you have a faulty connection. Make sure the line is connected properly, also check to see if you have your settings set to Fax/Fax Receive mode.

Sf-5100 issue


Kindly check the setup. Before anything refer to manual and check that you are getting a dial tone for sending in a telephone set.

Doesn't receive from two fax numbers outside the UK


I would suggest there is nothing actually wrong with your machine, as you can indeed receive faxes from other parties. The problem mostly likely lies with the equipment and/or lines of the sending party. One thing you might suggest to them is to turn off ECM (Error Correction Mode) and/or lowering the sending/receiving speed of the machine - preferably the sending speed of the sending party.
