Question about Samsung SF-4500 Plain Paper Thermal Fax

Open Question

Samsung SF 1600 Fax

The lights on the fax machine keep blinking on and off. Because of this, none of the buttons work. Not even the dial tone gets through the handset. Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem? I will greatly appreciate it.

Thanks!

Check the line cable. Try inserting that line to another telephone unit. And if there's still no dial tone the problem is on the line itself. You should call your line provider. But if the line is ok, check the LIU connectors if it is inserted correctly. It the connectors are ok, then the possible problem is on the tel. line circuit on its mainboard.

Machine will require fuser(hot bit at rear) replaced before it will operate, take to dealer for quote or if brave and 240v happy then buy a fuser and get your tools out rip off the covers and in the back you will find fuser assy.

I believe that with this model there are 2 places to insert a phone line and you may have them backwards, also, it could be a bad phone cord that your using... check these easy things first...

How do i get dial tone on fax machine


first, as a tech, i would make sure your phone jack works, then also make sure the line is plugged into the "line" jack on rear of fax. if those two steps are verified beyond a doubt, press your "hook" button and listen for dail tone. if none, pick up handset and listen. if you get tone on handset, then your speaker is disconnected. if you don't get a tone either way, then chances are you have a bad "NCU" board.

good luck,

I cannot send fax


Hi there!



For you to send a fax with the Brother Fax you can try these steps:

1. First make sure that you have a dial tone by lifting the handset or just by pressing the hook/speakerphone button. Once you have verified you have a dial tone press the hook button again to return to the main screen or hang up the handset. LCD should display the date & time



If you don't have a dial tone make sure that the telephone line cord is connected on the fax machine's Line jack. If you don't have a dial tone still, connect it to another working outlet. If you don't have a dial tone still, connect a working telephone on the wall jack to see if you'll get a dial tone. If you get a dial tone on the regular phone then problem is either with the line cord or the fax machine.



2. Once you have the date & time on the LCD screen, Load the document that you want to send on the automatic document feeder which is directly above the LCD screen.



3. The LCD screen should change from the date/time to "Enter Fax No. & Press Start" Once you got this screen dial the fax number and then press Start.



Hope this helps. Rate if it works.

Thanks!

Hi i cant send a fax


First thing is to ensure that you have dial tone by picking up the handset on the fax machine and listening for dial tone.If there is no handset take a standard house phone and plug it into the jack where the fax machine was inserted. If there is dial tone on the phone then I would advise you to turn the power off the fax for two minutes then power back on. If there is no dial tone on the phone line contact your vendor or local phone carrier and report NO DIAL TONE

Will not send fax


Hi:

If you can not send a fax the first thing to do is see if your fax machine has a monitor button or a handset. If it does press the monitor button and see if you can hear a dial tone. If you can't hear a dial tone then your phone line is the problem.

The 2820 should have a handset. In order to use manual transmission (when you get to hear all the beeps and whistles) you will need to load the document then pick up the handset. then dial the number, when you hear the recieving fax tone then hit the start button.

The 2820 should also have a hook hold button pressing this will allow you to hear the dial tone and the numbers you dial along with the receiving fax tone. If you dont hear anything when you press this button then you may want to use the volume buttons to increase the volume.

Also remember that if you have not picked up the handset or pressed he hook/hold button the unit will use automatic mode, which is to say that all you will do is load the document, dial the number, and then press the start button.

HISSS on line; no dial-tone; no fax in or out


it sounds like you may not have any dial tone. the hiss [white noise] you are hearing is from the dsl modem.try plugging a regular corded phone into the jack to check for dial tone.if there is none,call your phone company.also try plugging the fax machine into another jack where you know there is dial tone.
good luck

After static shock, keypad on fax machine is not working...everything else ok


Most office machines are properly grounded and don't suffer from static problems as severe as this. The machine is not repairable. Before you replace the machine, make sure that your electrical outlets are properly grounded. Then buy a line conditioner that will protect against this.
