Question about Samsung CLX-3170FN All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Trying to set up the fax receiving service on our Samsung CLX-3170 and am having a bit of trouble. Wewould like to be able to receive faxes when we aren't home so have it set to 'fax' mode on 3 rings, but the fax machine picks up ALL calls deafening the caller with a fax tone. We have voice mail so we can't set it to more rings or voice mail will pick up. Is there anyway to get the fax machine to pick up ONLY when it's a fax other than the DRPD option?

Can't send or receive faxes ADSL


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.

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.

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.

Receiving fax


Hi trbrewer -


Had similar problem (setup for 2 rings, picked up after 8).
Problem was: receiving mode was set to "ans/fax". Once set to
"fax" all was OK.

to set "fax" mode: see page9.4 of manual

Good luck !!

Internal Error 923 with Sending or Receiving Fax


I've just got my CLX-3160FN and found the same problems. Could go around the sending error, but can't receive faxes yet, always error 923.
Sending: make sure you press the "On Hook Dial" button before entering the recipient's number. Stupid, very stupid, but it's how it works.
