I have a samsung CLX 3160 Multifunction Fax. I have had the fax for a while and typically have no problem in receiving a fax. I need to know which one of the ports to put my phone line in that goes to the wall--the EXT or the TEL?

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.

We cannot receive or send a fax. If I dial our fax number it rings as a normal phone and not the sound that a fax number makes. The machine is only a few months old.


Not sure how a fax machine is supposed to sound when it rings, before the fax answers it will sound exactly the same on the phone as dialing a regular phone number. If you are using distinct ring tone service where the fax line is supposed to double ring and it is not then it is possible that your phone provider has problems. Are you able to make a regular voice call on the phone line that the fax is supposed to use? If no, then it is definetly the line not the machine.

Fax wont send or receive? I can here it ringing though wont send???


Try changing the cable from the phone wall outlet to the fax, when a incoming RING signal comes, with a bad phone cable (it is 90 volts AC) so the power to ring the fax can go through but not DATA, try pluging a standard phone in the wall outlet to see if it work's.... if the standard phone don't work than call the phone company's service desk, if the standard phone work's (initiating a call) than concentrate on the printer's trouble shooting guide...

Good luck!

Go to printer properties and check whether you have selected print in grey mode and also check whether you have selected the economic mode. Rectify the same will solve your problem.

The fax is on what you call a Distinctive Ring tone. You need to go in to the settings on the fax machine, and look for Ring type, or Distinctive Ring, And set it to 2 or 3, Dependent on how the phone rings on the fax number.
