Question about Samsung SF-340 Plain Paper Inkjet Fax

1 Answer

Dialling out! Hi! We have a Samsung SF-341P phone/fax machine. We are able to receive calls but are unable to dial out. As soon as we enter the fourth digit, the busy tone sounds and no call can be made. Any ideas why?

Re: Dialling out!

Hi make sure that you don't need a prefix number i.e. a 9 to dial a outside line. The best test is to plug a normal phone into the socket and call someone from that line. If the same problem is still there then it is a line problem if not check within the machine menu that under TTI or call settings that there is no prefix number installed. If there is set the machine so it doesn't need a prefix.

I hope this helps you
Thanks J

Fax to 1-815-346-2473 on my SF 650 machine?


first check the no 1-815-346-2473 with your telephone company. In the said model there is a handset. do -lift hand set here the companys dial tone dial the required tel. no. here the Rx.tone from the other fax machine connected. If its working definitely your fax machine will transmit the data.

If the fax machine has connected behind EPABX, it has unique no. to dial out side of the epabx. In that case contact your EPABX provider to program the fax machine.

Unable to receive fax messages but able to send

Any money you like you are not using the genuine samsung line lead that came with the machine. I imagine your machine does not ring when getting an incoming call. If it does then lift the handset and press the start button and it should go into receive.

Not receiving any incoming faxes

Is the phone line working? Do you have any devices connected to the phone line that pick up before the fax machine? Make sure the machine has paper and is set to FAX or AUTO. Is there a Memory Full error? Clear the memory (Setup > Memory Clear then press Start/Enter. Use the left and right arrows to select the items to remove. Press Start/Enter twice (second time to confirm the choice). Repeat until all memory is cleared that you wish to clear. Then press Stop to exit.)

If you are using the ANS/FAX mode and have an answering machine connected to the extension port, disconnect the anwering machine and switch to FAX or AUTO. Check if the machine receives faxes. Sometimes the extra device causes interference. Call the fax machine from a different phone number and see if you hear the fax tones.

Check that the Junk Fax barrier is off, if the incoming call is from a machine that is not listed in your speed dial database. If you have a distinctive ring, make sure that the Fax machine has learned the ring by pressing Setup go to DRPD. Choose Set and call the fax machine from another phone. The LCD will say Waiting Ring until it gets that call and then once the ring is learned will say END DRPD Setup

I hope these ideas help.

(If you have a phone company voice mail service, the faxes may end up stuck in that box. It depends on how many rings the fax is set to wait before picking up versus when the voice mail opens to take the call.)

Remove all papers from the machine, unplug it from the mains suply and try all over again,
If the problem persist most probably there is a broken or an unplug actuator sensor inside the machine or in the scaner area.

The person you are sending to has a busy phone line.

Call your cell phone from the fax machine to test.

Kindly check the setup. Before anything refer to manual and check that you are getting a dial tone for sending in a telephone set.

Manual can be found here: Does the unit ring at all? If it does do the following (taken from the manual) Receiving automatically in FAX mode 1. Press Rcv.Mode/Contrast until the display shows ?FAX MODE?. 2. When you get a call, the machine answers the call on a specified number of rings and receives a fax automatically. You can change the number of rings. See ?RINGS TO ANSWER? on page 5.4. To adjust the ringer volume, see ?Adjusting volume? on page 2.8. If the phone is not ringing, then the call is never even getting to your fax machine. Hope this helps If you need more information, please ask before rating this solution. Ed
