I am able to receive fax but unable to send and would like to know how to resove this problem?

I am not sure with the Samsung but I know on the HP units if you accidently plug the fax line into the extension phone jack instead of the line jack they will receive but not send. It has to do with the way the jacks are wired.

Hi, first of all you have to be sure that you are plugging the cables in correct places. Then please press the "on hook" dial button and if you dont hear any signal then maybe your HP has damaged fax option. Also there is a difference between "pulse" and "tone" line signal. Please check that option in the fax menu.

I get an error 49 message as soon as I try to fax. Then the printer switches itself off and back on again.

Try the following: got to the menu (the wrench) and with the arrows look for service, press ok and look for restore defaults. After that unplug the fax line (this is very important). Go to the hp website and download the firmware update and run it (while updating dont to anything to the printer, no print, copy, fax.) when that is completed try to fax again this should resolve it. If the error persist the formatter (the motherboard) is defective. I think HP repair formatter issues with 2 years from the original purchase.

and then go to the printers folder and check if the printer icon says 0 ready..if it says then try printing..that should work

Printer won't print

i would gather that you need to get back in to menuy and got to fax mode , but make it state auto fax mode
so that when faxing is complete it will auto go back to printer status
we get the same thing here at my work but me making the menu go into auto fax mode seems to handle the trick

i hope tihis is helpfull and if not let me know cause thats all we use here at work is hp all in one printers i will check for you and just give me model number ok
