Hi again,

For some reason I could no longer view your responses.

Nonetheless, I posted in the Live Session a method of verifying the fax sending capability even in the absence of a receiving fax machine.

Cheers.

SOURCE: Receiving faxes

If you are receiving a fax and you pick up the telephone before the fax machine answers it, the fax will never be able to respond to the fax being received. I assume that is whats happening. If you have a phone connected directly to the fax machine and you pick it up from that phone, the fax machine should transfer to itself after 2 seconds when it recognizes that it is a fax machine.
If you are going to do it from anywhere else, you need to get a fax detector device connect it to the main phone jack, and have the fax machine go to the fax jack of the connector and the other phone in to the other lines, make sure you have enough sockets on the fax detector.

thanks

Make sure you attach a dsl filter to the Samsung. Should look like this: Samsung/filter/phone line. Should be installed like this: filter to Samsung bottom phone jack, phone line to filter. Attach the home phone to the upper extension jack from the Samsung.

If you want to use the FAX - use the dedicated line to the FAX Machine..

Hi check the following steps
Problems with sending and receiving FAX

Check the TELEPHONE LINE

Make sure that you have plugged the phone cord directly and securely into the wall jack and into the back port of the fax product. The fax port on your product is marked "Line," "To Wall Jack," or with a wall jack symbol.

Check LIU

Make sure the Line Interface Unit (box that the phone cord plugs into) is fully seated into the back of the fax product.

Remove the SPLITTER

Remove any other devices from the line such as splitters, credit card machines, or telephone answering machines.


Can try sending the Fax on Another Line


CHECK WITH DIFFERENT CABLE
Try using a different telephone cord.

Fax interrupts phone call


1. Make sure your [RINGS TO ANSWER] settings are more than the same settings for your answering machine.
2. If someone tries to make a copy while the phone line is in use, they need to press number 1, as if telling the unit that they want one copy. If not, the unit will think you are trying to receive a fax and will interrupt the communication.

Be blessed.

Stop the Samsung CLX 316FN from answering the house chat line


Make sure that the unit is hooked to the fax line only. Many people often merge both lines when connecting answering machines and more than one wireless phone. Also make sure that the unit is the FIRST equipment connected from the wall outlet. Finally, enter the program mode and make sure the fax setting is turned to FAX or TEL. The first setting makes the unit answer after the amount of rings programmed, while the other setting is for manual reception only. One final notice: if you are using the phone line for talking and someone hits START for a copy, the unit will assume a fax and iterrupt the communication. To avoid this, press NO. COPIES first before making copies. Even if it is for one copy only.
