Turn the machine round and make sure that you haven't fitted the telephone cable into the phone slot. if you have remove the cable from the machine and plug into the other slot that is usually indicated by a letter L. Once done this try the on hook dial and hopefully there will be a dial tone. If there is not then try a different telephone cable if still the same problem then unfortunately the modem card is faulty and will need replacing.

2- Have you plugged in the Phone line to the machine and made sure that both ends are plugged in the jacks. This is not the network cable but a seperate jack that uses a phone line.

Please to assure that the cable from your wall connection go into the printer first and then from there with another cable to your phone. Second set up the printer as fax by using the original soft ware cd or download the programm from samsung webside. Make sure the phone and the fax are compatibile!

Setup FAX...

Plug a phone cord into the LINE port of your machine. Ideally it should be a dedicated phone number, but you can share a line.

Sending a fax is just like making a phone call.

Load your original face down , dial the fax number, press send or start.

Receiving will be automatic.

Will not receive nor transmit faxes. States Delayed Fax

Has the machine been moved lately? If so recheck the plugs. It sounds like the machine is not actually plugged into the phone line or plugged in properly. Happened to me. When I checked I had absentmindedly plugged the phone cord into the ethernet port because I didn't look at the markings at the machine. Otherwise, plug a phone into the phone outlet and try it. If it works and everything else checks out then I would try replacing the cord between the fax and the phone wall outlet. Definitely sounds like it is not getting to the phone wall outlet.

There are two sockets on the machine for telphone cable connection. one is for tyhe machine to be connected to exchange and other is for a phone set to mbe connected to machine. connect the line from exchange to the plug marked with "LINE". also check if your telephone company atually support fax communication. some comanies do not support sending of fax on there network. There is no software to be installed for fax. Good Luck,
