Trying to send a fax--it rings and rings, but never connects.


Are you certain you are faxing to a valid number. First verify by using another number that is a known working number and ask if it is ringing on the reception fax.

Hi again,

For some reason I could no longer view your responses.

Nonetheless, I posted in the Live Session a method of verifying the fax sending capability even in the absence of a receiving fax machine.

Cheers.

Fax interrupts phone call


1. Make sure your [RINGS TO ANSWER] settings are more than the same settings for your answering machine.
2. If someone tries to make a copy while the phone line is in use, they need to press number 1, as if telling the unit that they want one copy. If not, the unit will think you are trying to receive a fax and will interrupt the communication.

Be blessed.

Receiving fax


Hi trbrewer -


Had similar problem (setup for 2 rings, picked up after 8).
Problem was: receiving mode was set to "ans/fax". Once set to
"fax" all was OK.

to set "fax" mode: see page9.4 of manual

Good luck !!

Stop the Samsung CLX 316FN from answering the house chat line


Make sure that the unit is hooked to the fax line only. Many people often merge both lines when connecting answering machines and more than one wireless phone. Also make sure that the unit is the FIRST equipment connected from the wall outlet. Finally, enter the program mode and make sure the fax setting is turned to FAX or TEL. The first setting makes the unit answer after the amount of rings programmed, while the other setting is for manual reception only. One final notice: if you are using the phone line for talking and someone hits START for a copy, the unit will assume a fax and iterrupt the communication. To avoid this, press NO. COPIES first before making copies. Even if it is for one copy only.
