Question about Samsung SCX-4216F All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

My 4216F has stopped transmitting in ECM mode.

As above, but does transmit in G3 OK.
What this means is that local faxes go OK but International transmissions are a hit or a miss!
I cannot find anything on the Samsung pages.

ECM mode stands for "Error Correction Mode". This feature aids in compensating for bad line conditions. However, when dialing international calls, you cannot assess the condition ot the various telephone service companies your call might be going through. If you can transmit without problem locally, then there is no problem in your machine. You should then call your telephone company and get them to check you line connection under the argument that long-distance or international calls cannot be completed.

Be blessed.

How to send fax? activity report shows MODE:tx g3 and resust shows:ng00ff


The result NG 00FF means that the machine has tried to send a fax and gone through it's 3 redials and ended up failing to transmit. You do not say if you can receive faxes?

1. Make sure the telephone line you are connected to will make an outgoing and an incoming call. try this with a good working telephone.
2. Make sure you are using the genuine canon telephone line lead.
3. Make sure the line lead is plugged into the LINE socket and NOT the TEL socket.
4. Press the HOOK button on the fax and you should hear the dial tone through the speaker.

If all the above works and is correct then the machiine has a problem but i doubt it as you are getting 00FF and if the machine was at fault you would get a different error.
I reckon the above should cure your problem.

Good luck.

HP All-In-One can send but cannot receive fax or can receive but cannot send


One of the most common problems with HP All-in-One Printers is that they can send out fax but cannot receive or they can receive fax but cannot send. Now, what more could possibly be the problem if you are sure that your connection cables are correct and properly setup? Well, most people don't know that this is more often than not, caused by the ECM feature of the fax.

ECM or Error Correction Mode is used by fax machines during transmission. This feature is used to eliminate transmission problems especially when you have a "dirty" or noisy telephone line or a very poor signal can result to fax failures. ECM mode, when is turned ON is supposed to check for errors and glitches and is supposed to make the reception or transmission of faxes come out successfully.

However, for some reasons, the ECM mode is not supposed to be performing well with its feature. Especially if the user has a problem with the telephone line, the more that they cannot receive or transmit a fax. It is then recommended that your HP All-In-One printer's ECM fax settings be turned OFF. To do this, follow the steps below:

1. On your printers front control panel, press the button with the wrench symbol; this is the Setup button.
2. Press the right > or left < arrow until you see Advanced Fax Setup then press OK.
3. Press the right > or left < arrow until you see Error Correction Mode; again press OK.
4. Press the right > or left < arrow until to select Error Correction Mode OFF. Press OK to confirm.

That's it! You may now try to send out a fax or ask a friend to send you one.

Printer laserjet 3055 give fax problem problem is fax comm.error 322


Good day.
A fax comm.error 322 usually means:
Telephone line conditions were too poor to send a fax.

Solution:

1. Reattempt the fax transmission at a different time when telephone line conditions have improved.

2. If the session fails after transmitting several pages of a large document, retransmit the document as several smaller documents.

You can also try disabling the ECM feature:
Reconfigure the local fax machine to use different configuration settings, toggle the ECM state and/or select a slower reception speed.

To Disable ECM, perform the following steps:

1. Press the or > button until the front display reads "Fax Setup".

2. Press the ENTER/MENU button.

3. Press the or > button until the front display reads "All Faxes".

4. Press the ENTER/MENU button.

5. Press the or > button until the front display reads "Error Correction".

6. Press the ENTER/MENU button.

7. Press the button until the font display reads "Off" and then press the ENTER/MENU button to save the setting. (Off disables ECM and On enables ECM).



TIP: It would also be helpful to check physical conditions of your phone cord and telephone filters if you are using one.

We keep getting an error code 344* when we are trying to transmit a fax. What can we do to fix this?


Error 344 means :-

The remote machine has failed to respond to a fax command from the product because the connection is interrupted.
The remote user has pressed the Stop button while the remote machine was receiving.
Under rare conditions, incompatibility between the two machines can cause the remote machine to simply abandon the call.

Solutions :-
  1. Attempt to send the fax again when telephone-line conditions have improved.
  2. If the fax session was using error correction, disable ECM.
To disable ECM Press :-
  1. Press Setup .
  2. Press the Down arrow (c00326489.gif ) repeatedly until Advanced Fax Setup displays.
  3. Press OK .
  4. Press the Down arrow (c00326489.gif ) until Error Correction Mode displays.
  5. Press OK .
  6. Press the Right arrow (> ) until either OFF or ON displays.
  7. Press OK .
  8. Send another fax to verify that the ECM is enabled or disabled.
Check the Phone Cable connected with the printer.
Make sure the Cable should be connected to line 1 port at the back of the printer and it should be going directly from the printer to the wall jack and not to the Serj protector.

Try to print a fax test page.
  1. On the control panel of the product, press the Setup button (c01361401.gif ).
  2. Press the Right Arrow button (c01185072.jpg ) to select Tools , and then press OK .
  3. Press the Right Arrow button (c01185072.jpg ) to select Run Fax Test , and then press OK . The product displays the test results on the control panel display and prints the Fax Test Report.
Now Do this :-
  1. Send a one page black and white text fax to 1-888-hpfaxme (1-888-473-2963).
  2. When your fax is received by the HP Test Fax Service, we will generate a return fax to you within five minutes confirming that we received your fax. This verifies that you can both send and receive a fax with your fax machine.
If you do not receive a return fax within 5-7 minutes, there may be a problem with the setup of your fax machine. Consult the user manual that came with the product for proper setup and configuration. Try the above steps and let me know if it works for you.

I'm getting an error mesage: ECM error on my Sharp AR-M207 fax machine. How can I fix it?


ECM (Error Correction Mode) is a feature common in most fax machines today. It helps to minimize errors while transmitting faxes over noisy phone lines.

1) Be sure you have the latest version of the drivers installed
2) Turn the fax off, then unplug for 10 minutes, turn on and try again. This should clear up anything in the printer/fax memory
3) Check if your phone line is unsually noisy when you tried to send the fax(es) that gave you the error message. If this is the case, a sucessful fax transmission will be almost impossible. You may have a faulty phone line or an improper installation. Either of these two should be fixed by your phone company. Also, most phoen companies can test your phone line (for fre) remotely to check for abnormally high noise levels.

Please, report back if you need further assistance.

Error 350


Error 350 means...
The remote machine has failed to respond to a fax command from the local machine due to the connection being interrupted. These errors can occur if the phone lines in the area to be faxed are old or there is noise (static on the phone line). Other reasons can include power outages and other power related problems.
OR
The call waiting service can cause this error. The click, heard for an incoming call, is actually a momentary disconnect of the line.
OR
The remote user has pressed the Stop key while the reception was in progress.
OR
Under rare conditions incompatibility between the two machines may cause the remote machine to simply abandon the call.

Try this solution...
*Re-attempt the fax reception at a different time when telephone line conditions have improved. Call the telephone provider if line conditions fail to improve.
*Disable ECM. Errors may still occur, and may result in a degraded image quality on the received page. However, the ability to transmit the entire document will be improved. (To turn off the ECM, simply press the setup button on the pritner, use the right arrow and select advance fax setup on the options. Press ok under advance fax setup. Use the right arrow and select Error Correction Mode. Press ok and select Off.)
*Try sending at a lower transmission speed. (To lower the transmission speed. Press the setup button, go to advance fax setup. under advance fax setup, look for Fax speed. change the fax speed to slow)

After you have done the T/S, try sending a fax again.
Hope this would resolved your issue.
