    Our machine at work displays "job waiting." I've read through the manual and there is no reference to "job waiting."

    We have a 'job waiting' message which appeared first and then the fax machine would not receive or send. We turned the machine off for the week-end, cleared the memory but no joy.

    There is also nothing in the manual that suggests a solution

Samsung sf-5100 fax toner empty

I have a feeling that it is a re-manufactured or compatible cartridge??
There is a fuse that needs to be replaced on this unit. it blows when the cartridge is installed to reset the machine. If the fuse has not been replaced or is defective the machine will not recognize the new unit.

My SF-5100 has stoped receiving faxes

Make sure you are set for AUTO RECEIVE.

Unplug power cord and re-connect. Do you have a DSL phone line?

Job waiting message appears on screen.

You can selectively clear information stored in your machine’s memory.
1. Press Setup on the control panel. The display shows the first menu;
2. Press ➛ or ❿ until ‘MEMORY CLEAR’ appears, then press
Start/Enter. The display shows the items you can choose to clear.
• FAX NUMBER/NAME : your fax number and name are cleared from
the machine’s memory.
• DIAL/SCHEDULE : clears the one-touch, speed dial, or group dial
numbers stored in the memory. In addition, all
the Schedule Job operations you have reserved
are also cancelled.
• JOURNAL : clears all records of transmissions & receptions.
• DEFAULT SETUP : restores all the option settings to factory default.

Only clear de Journal, don't clear the other.
Try this if it resolve the problem.
