Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

1 Answer

We have a Samsung CLX-6210FX. We purchased it 3 months ago. We have no support from the Supplier as we live in a remote area. We are having problems with our incoming/sending faxes. Our phone/fax no. is the same being 08 8987 8322. It operated before but not too sure what is wrong with it. When the phone rings, there is a different tone you hear when it is a fax. Usually after 2 tones, the phone will click over into the fax. The tones changeover so that you are aware the fax will be coming through. When we send emails, the machine takes all the faxes and scans as per usual but the screen says to redial try again. Need answers why the fax is not operating as per usual.

Hi there is no Fax tone which could mean that the connect tone board is faulty. This unit should be replaced under warranty no questions asked.
I know your phone works because we spoke.....
but is the mode set to FAX

Can you send a fax 0883889293

I would be contacting SHARP Customer support and reporting the matter to them if you are not getting satisfaction from the seller. There is 12 months warranty on all new fax/phones.

Consumer affairs would also be interested in hearing your plight if you dont get satrisfaction.

Make sure your fax is on the MAIN incoming line and not an EXTENSION.....

Date: 18/02/2000 Question: Why won't my facsimile machine receive?
Answer: 1. If your facsimile machine is on a separate telephone line, make sure it is set to "FAX" reception mode.
2. If your facsimile machine is connected to the normal telephone line your choices are:-
(a) Set the facsimile machine to "TEL" mode. The facsimile machine will act as a normal telephone. When you answer the 'telephone' by lifting the facsimile machines handset, carry on a voice call conversation or you may send or receive a facsimile message by asking the intended receiver the push start first and the sender likewise after the document is loaded into the document scanner AND the receiving facsimile is heard to 'squeel'.
(b) Set the Reception mode to 'TEL/FAX'. In this mode the facsimile machine will use a special ring tone to alert you to a voice call. This is called a pseudo-ring and sounds differently to the normal "ring-ring". Every call phone or fax will be answered by the facsimile machine and fax calls promptly received with no further intervention of the owner/operator. Only when the long singular ring of pseudo ring is heard should the owner pick up the handset of the facsimile machine. Note: answering the call on other extensions is possible but can not be detected by the facsimile machine and facsimile answer tones may also occur and is not recommended.
(C) If you have not subscribed to FaxStream Duet, but have enabled "Distinctive ring" in the option settings of the fax machine, your fax will be unable to receive automatic faxes. Set "Distinctive Ring" to NO in option settings.
(D) If you have subscribed to FaxStream Duet, but have not enabled "Distinctive ring" in option settings, the fax will continue ringing without answering. Set distinctive ring to YES in option settings. NOTE: the reception mode of the fac machine must be set to "FAX" when using FaxStream Duet.

    just a moment! you are sending emails via the fax?

    So you have this doing emails as faxes or using a facsimilie program to acess this unit?
    At that rate I would uninstall the software and reinstall ensuring the right drivers are installed and start again. It may be as simple as replacing one of the drivers, if my re read interpretation is correct.

    firstly though, perhaps if the above is so we should start from the top and set this unit to be the dedicated fax using paper on the scanner to copy the fax to memory and then dial it out. Leave the machine in fax mode and request a reply setting it up as per the book and by passing any connection to a PC.

    Feel free to fax me after you have set this up as standard and i will try and send back a reply
    if the fax shows its in memory then try to print it
    What error codes show if any?
