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.

What is ecm tx


ECM is basically error correction mode. Tx is transmission. If you're having trouble transmitting, lower the default speed to 14.4kps. Fax transmit best on analog phone lines. Digital lines will work, but unless you have a digital fax modem 14.4 is often the best you can hope for. If you're on a voice over ip max speed is 9600bps and it probably still won't work. Buy an analog phone adapter for VoIP. If you're still having transmission troubles turn off ECM.

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.

Can you please tell me how to print Fax activity report each time? means whenever I send a fax I need confirmation receipt thats its gone through.Can't find anything in Manual.


ACTIVITY REPORT

The FAX is factoryset to automatically print an ACTIVITY REPORT after every 20

transactions. If you want to print an ACTIVITY REPORT before it is automatically

printed, follow this procedure:

Transactions in an ACTIVITY REPORT are listed chronologically.

1 Press Function.

2 Press Report.

3 Press OK.

• The FAX prints an ACTIVITY

REPORT.

• If you prefer the FAX not to print an ACTIVITY REPORT after every 20 transactions,

disable the ACTIVITY REPORT setting ( p. 145).

• Please note that only one transaction number (TX/RX NO.) is assigned when you send

a document to several fax numbers in one operation.

I am getting error 244 when receiving a fax.


errors 243 and 244. Taken from HP.

The user of the remote machine has pressed that machine's Stop key causing the session to be prematurely terminated. Alternatively: the remote fax machine determined there was a feature incompatibility between the two machines and has terminated the session. An example would be when the local machine wanted to initiate polling, but the remote machine did not support this mode of operation.

Solution:

1. Confirm the remote user is not inadvertently attempting to poll transmit from the local machine, instead of transmitting to the local machine. This mode of operation must be specially configured on the local machine. If poll transmission from the local machine is the desired mode of operation, confirm the local machine has been configured for this operation.

2. Reconfigure the local fax machine to use different configuration settings, toggle the ECM state and/or select a slower reception speed

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.

The remote machine has failed to respond to a fax command from the local machine due to the connection being interrupted.

Number of possible causes, check the phone line, try a different fax number for a start. Is there other fax machines in the office on the same line

SF5100 DOES NOT TRANSMIT ALL THE TIME


There maybe 1000's of reasons for this but the most common is that the ECM mode is turned on (ECM =Error Correction Mode) turn this off and try. There is one other common fault try doing a copy of a document and see if that come out ok. If you are getting the same fault the scanner unit is faulty and will need replacing.


Hope this helps and please rate me
