Is not working right. Do I plug cordless phone into phone wall jack first or Samsung SCX-4521F into phone wall jack first. What about rings to answer on fax- What setting? How many rings should I set on the answering machine? There was no book or CD with my printer so I have had to learn by doing. in Texas

Initially, pls try connecting the Panasonic KX-TG9331T to the telephone port marked "EXT." at the back of the Samsung All-in-One. At nearly the same location, there would be a telephone port marked "LINE" that should go to your wall telephone outlet.

Specific settings and configurations (as you posted) are better explained in the user's manual of the Samsung SCX-4521F which may be found here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

What you are looking for is called distinct ring. You have to subscribe to this via the phone company. There will be a specific ring on the phone to tell whether it is a call or a fax. You can then set the fax to listen for that specific tone then to activate when it hears that tone. hence you will get the fax. You can then go to the link below for the manual to setup the distinctive listen on your samsung printer fax

    It is called DPRD by the way DRPD (Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection)

    Receiving Faxes Using the

    DRPD Mode

    “Distinctive Ring” is a telephone company service which

    enables a user to use a single telephone line to answer several

    different telephone numbers. The particular number someone

    uses to call you is identified by different ringing patterns, which

    consist of various combinations of long and short ringing

    sounds. This feature is often used by answering services who

    answer telephones for many different clients and need to know

    which number someone is calling in on to properly answer the


    Using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection feature, your fax

    machine can “learn” the ring pattern you designate to be

    answered by the fax machine. Unless you change it, this ringing

    pattern will continue to be recognized and answered as a fax

    call, and all other ringing patterns will be forwarded to the

    extension telephone or answering machine plugged into the

    EXT. jack. You can easily suspend or change Distinctive Ring

    Pattern Detection at any time.

    Before using the Distinctive Ring Pattern Detection option,

    Distinctive Ring service must be installed on your telephone line

    by the telephone company. To set up Distinctive Ring Pattern

    Detection, you will need another telephone line at your

    location, or someone available to dial your fax number from


    To set up the DRPD mode:

    Press Menu until “Fax Setup” appears on the top line of

    the display.

    Press the scroll button ( or ) until you see “Receive

    Mode” on the bottom line and press Enter.

    Press the scroll button ( or ) until you see “DRPD Mode”

    on the bottom line and press Enter.

    When “Set” displays on the bottom line, press Enter.

    “Waiting Ring” appears on the display.

    Call your fax number from another telephone. It is not

    necessary to place the call from a fax machine.

    When your machine begins to ring, do not answer the call.

    The machine requires several rings to learn the pattern.

    When the machine completes learning, the LCD displays

    “End DRPD Setup”.

    If the DRPD setup fails, “DRPD Ring Error” appears. Press

    when “DRPD Mode” displays and retry from step 3.

    To return to Standby mode, press Stop/Clear.

    When the DRPD feature is set up, the DRPD option is available

    in the Receive Mode menu. To receive faxes in the DRPD mode,

    you need to set the menu to DRPD; see “DRPD Mode” on

    page 7.2.


    • DRPD must be set up again if you re-assign your fax number,

    or connect the machine to another telephone line.

    • After DRPD has been set up, call your fax number again to

    verify that the machine answers with a fax tone. Then have

    a call placed to a different number assigned to that same

    line to be sure the call is forwarded to the extension

    telephone or answering machine plugged into the EXT. jack.

I have fax problem in my multi-function panasonic printer machine, all the power and rest functions are working other than fax, I am not getting the line dial tone when pressing monitor even the faxline is...

See Page 72 of the User Manual available here:

I cannot hear a dial tone.

The telephone line cord is connected to the [EXT] jack on the unit. Connect to the [LINE] jack (page 21).

L If you use a splitter/coupler to connect the unit, remove the splitter/coupler and connect the unit to the wall jack directly. If the unit operates properly, check the splitter/coupler.

L Disconnect the unit from the telephone line and connect a known working telephone. If the working telephone operates properly, contact our service personnel to have the unit repaired. If the

working telephone does not operate properly, contact your telephone company.

L The power cord or telephone line cord is not connected. Check the connections.

L If you connected the unit through a computer modem, connect the unit directly to a telephone line jack.

I cannot make calls. L The dialing mode setting may be wrong. Change the setting (feature #120 on page 22).

The unit does not ring. L The ringer volume is turned OFF. Adjust it (page 23).

Hope this is helpful. ;)

Won't print, display shows TAD

Try pressing the hook switch and check if something is plugged in to the phone jacks in the back. TAD is a telephone answer device, no reason it should stop the printer.
