Sounds like the machine is trying to talk to the computer make sure the function is set to fax mode this will be in your manual.

Once you have tried this try sending a fax see what happens.

Hope this is some help to you please rate me.

Cannot receive faxes on Samsung SCX-4521F

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.
