SOURCE: MFC 465 CN - says FAX in DR Mode...What is that?

DR mode is distinctive ring, you have to go into fax setup and step through the options. If you go to print reports and select user settings the report will tell you what it's set for and the options are found in the same order they are printed.

SOURCE: fax is stuck on manual mode. how can I change.

I had this problem too, I just fixed it! DR = DISTINCTIVE RING, this means you have it turned on. To turn it off go to menu, fax, miscellaneous, distinctive and select OFF. Now go to back to initial setup and select your mode!

My fax machine will send a fax, but I can't receive a fax?


The fax machine may be in secure receiving mode. The following is from the User's Manual section on Faxing. downloadcenter samsung com

Receiving in secure receiving mode

You may need to prevent your received faxes from being accessed by unauthorized people. You can turn on secure receiving mode to restrict printing of received faxes when the machine is unattended. In secure receiving mode, all incoming faxes go into memory. When the mode is deactivated, any stored faxes are printed.

Activating secure receiving mode

  1. Press btn_fax.png(Fax) on the control panel.

  2. Press Menu until Advanced Fax appear.

  3. Press the left/right arrow until Secure Receive appear and press OK.

  4. Press the left/right arrow until On appear and press OK.

  5. Enter a four-digit password you want to use and press OK.

    You can activate secure receiving mode without setting a password, but cannot protect your faxes.

When a fax is received in secure receiving mode, your machine stores it in memory and shows Secure Receive to let you know that there is a fax received.

  1. Access the Secure Receive menu by following steps 1 through 3 in "Activating secure receiving mode."

  2. Press the left/right arrow until Print appear and press OK.

  3. Enter the four-digit password and press OK.

    The machine prints all of the faxes stored in memory.

DR mode means that the distigntive ring feature has been activated so it will not let you change receive mode. You need to turn off DR first. Press menu/set then 2, 0, 2, then press the down arrow till you see distigntive off then press menu/set.

Now you should be able to change the receive mode to fax only!

Fax history


Depending on your model, You need to press the MENU button, or check if there is a REPORTS button. For either case, scroll through the display until you come to the PRINT REPORTS mode. It may be worded differently on your machine, but what you are looking for is the FAX ACTIVITY report. You can also get printouts of TRANSMISSON OR RECEIVE ACTIVITY, and also CALLER ID, iIf you encounter a command called PROTOCAL DUMP, this also is a printout of fax activity.. Whether your activity report goes back to july 2007 is unknown. Normally an activity report shows a certain number of activities per printout, say the last 50 fax operations. It is not based on a certain timefrane.
