A) Run the fax test on the printer itself to see if it's connected properly and has an active phone line.. HP All-in-one printers still make a dial tone sound even if they aren't connected to a phone line.
To run the test 1)..Press the SETUP button. Press the down arrow button until "Tools" is highlighted then pres OK.
2) Press down arrow key again and select "Run Fax test"
The printer will then print out the results.
It will tell you if anything fails. If it does, the correct the problem it mentions.
IF everything passes, then the problem is likely your cable phone line which is a "Digital" and Fax machines still use an analog signal.
Here is what you can try to overcome the deficiencies in a cable phone system.
1) Set your fax speed to Medium
2) Turn your ECM (Error correction mode) OFF
To set your fax speed, Press the SETUP button again.. Press your down arrow again until you find "Advanced Fax Settings" and the press OK.. arrow down until you find "Fax Speed" and hit OK. Then choose Medium (14,400) and press OK This will take you to your previous menu (Advanced Fax setings).. Find "ECM Choose OK again.. Then choose OFF and press OK. Press the X button on your printer's control panel and then Retry your fax.. Hope this helps

I'd suggest unplugging the unit completely, and then removing the printer from the installed printers by uninstalling it (right-click on the printer icon and then DELETE), and then going through CONTROL PANEL -> ADD REMOVE PROGRAMS and remove all software related to the printer or EPSON. Then reboot.
Then download the updated software and driver package from:
...and follow instructions for a clean install and set up of the unit.
Uninstalling the old software and drivers and removing the printer is important to be certain the new installation will work without confusion.

SOURCE: No dial tone detected
It may be a bad modem on the copier. Plug your phone into the auxillary phone port on the copier and see if you get a dial tone. Also make sure that your cord from the wall is plugged into the line port and not the phone port.

I'm not sure if I can help you or not, but I do have a suggestion or 2, that may help isolate the problem.
The solution I gave you initially, is the usual culprit for the situation you are experiencing. If the machine can "send", then "receiving" is not normally a problem, as long as the reception settings are correct. You said that "sending works fine"?
Since you have multiple faxes, you might try swapping the locations, or at least try the Samsung in a known working environment, to see if it behaves the same. If it works on another line, then try the other fax on the "Samsung" line.
That's all I have to suggest right now, but I'd be anxious to hear if there is any change.
