Question about Samsung Office Equipment & Supplies
Normally the fax/telephone/answering modes are set by adjusting the mode switch as the device acts acccorrding to the mode/function set.
Look for the ringer setting on the side to set the device to respond to the number of rings.
when the hand set is in cradle the function will be denoted in the display memory.
Press and hold answer key for 5 seconds to see if this works to get the display to set to answering machine. If not switch off fax mode and try to switch the phone to this mode by pressing the answer button.
Either of this must work as in most phones there is no complication or method required as it is a straight switch.
Please check on the sides for any default switch.

Set the number of rings before answering
If you turn on the Auto Answer setting, you can specify how many rings occur before
incoming calls are automatically answered.
The Rings to Answer setting is important if you have an answering machine on the
same phone line as the device, because you want the answering machine to answer
the phone before the device does. The number of rings to answer for the device
should be greater than the number of rings to answer for the answering machine.
For example, set your answering machine to a low number of rings and the device to
answer in the maximum number of rings. (The maximum number of rings varies by
country/region.) In this setup, the answering machine answers the call and the device
monitors the line. If the device detects fax tones, it receives the fax. If the call is a
voice call, the answering machine records the incoming message.
To set the number of rings before answering via the control panel
1. Press Setup.
2. Press Basic Fax Setup, and then press Rings to Answer.
3. Enter the appropriate number of rings by using the keypad, or press the left or right
arrow button to change the number of rings.
4. Press OK to accept the setting.
