Question about Samsung SCX 4521F All-In-One Laser Printer
I have one line, to which both phone and fax are connected.
Is it possible to only make the Fax answer when there is an incoming fax message and do nothing when a regular call comes in?
To have the machine set to "Phone", and use the code *9* to direct incoming fax messages should work when there is someone who can answer. BUT, what happends if a fax arrives when the office is closed? I wan't that to be recieved automatically.
If I set the number of "signals before answering" to 7 AND use the "phone" mode, will the Fax then answer and recieve incoming fax messages after office hours?
I hope you realise what I want to accomplish, and that you have a good solution.
I am not really familiar with your machine, but have worked on faxes for 20 years. Most models are fax, fax/tel, and tel, meaning it is either or, or a combination. The function you seek was on many models with a built in answering machine. As the machine answered, you said in your message to press start now, or leave a message.
I would say, use your *9* solution with phone while you are there, but switch it to fax mode when you leave. Any regular call coming in at that time will not get answered anyway, but faxes would automatically be received. I know it is an extra step, but that would work.

Tips for a great answer:
If you have an answering machine connected to the same
line as the fax, set the answering machine to answer incoming calls before the
printer does. Increase the number of rings by a factor of 3 over the answering
machine. For example, if the answering machine is set to pick up on 4 rings,
set the printer to pick up on 7 rings.
If you have a voicemail feature in the same line as the fax, you may subscribe from your phone service provider for a distinctive ring pattern feature. You can program your printer to have a distinctive ring pattern and phone number for incoming faxes.
