Important Precautions and Safety Information
When using this fax machine, these basic safety precautions should always be followed to
reduce risk of fire, electric shock, and injury to persons:
1. Read and understand all instructions.
2. Use common sense whenever operating electrical appliances.
3. Follow all warnings and instructions marked on the product and in the literature
accompanying the product.
4. If an operating instruction appears to conflict with safety information, heed the safety
information. You may have misunderstood the operating instruction. If you cannot resolve
the conflict, contact your sales or service representative for assistance.
5. Unplug the fax machine from the AC wall socket and telephone jack before cleaning. Do
not use liquid or aerosol cleaners. Use only a damp cloth for cleaning.
6. Do not place the fax machine on an unstable cart, stand, or table. It may fall, causing
serious damage.
7. Your fax machine should never be placed on, near, or over a radiator, heater, air
conditioner, or ventilation duct.
8. Do not allow anything to rest on the power, telephone. Do not locate your fax machine
where the cords will be abused by persons walking on them.
9. Do not overload wall outlets and extension cords. This can diminish performance, and
may result in the risk of fire or electric shock.
10. Do not allow pets to chew on the AC power, telephone, or PC interface cords.
11. Never push objects of any kind into the fax machine through case or cabinet openings.
They may touch dangerous voltage points, creating a risk of fire or shock. Never spill
liquid of any kind onto or into the fax machine.
12. To reduce the risk of electric shock, do not disassemble the fax machine. Take it to a
qualified service technician when repair work is required. Opening or removing covers
may expose you to dangerous voltages or other risks. Incorrect reassembly could cause
electric shock when the unit is subsequently used.
13. Unplug the machine from the telephone jack, PC, and AC wall outlet, and refer servicing
to qualified service personnel under the following conditions:
• When any part of the power cord, plug, or connecting cable is damaged or frayed.
• If liquid has been spilled into the product.
• If the product has been exposed to rain or water.
• If the product does not operate properly after instructions have been followed.
• If the product has been dropped, or the cabinet appears damaged.
• If the product exhibits a sudden and distinct change in performance.
14. Adjust only those controls covered by the operating instructions. Improper adjustment of
other controls may result in damage, and may require extensive work by a qualified
service technician to restore the product to normal operation.
15. Avoid using this fax machine during a lightning storm. There may be a remote risk of
electric shock from lightning. If possible, unplug the AC power and telephone for the
duration of the lightning storm.
16. If your machine is an SF-3100T, never dispose of batteries or battery packs in a fire. There
is a serious risk of explosion and/or the release of highly toxic chemicals.
17. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
In Case of Interference
In normal operation, your SAMSUNG fax machine produces and uses radio-frequency
energy. In some cases, this can cause interference to other electronic equipment. Part 15 of
the FCC rules establishes guidelines limiting the amount of radio-frequency energy which
may be produced by electronic equipment. Tests have proven that your Samsung FAX
machine meets or exceeds these guidelines, and is classified a “Class B Digital Device” for
operation in a residential environment. When installed and operated according to instructions,
your SAMSUNG fax machine should not cause interference to the types of equipment
expected to be found in a normal residential environment.
Unauthorized changes or modifications could void the user’s authority to operate the
equipment.
In the event your SAMSUNG fax machine appears to cause interference to other electronic
equipment, it can often be easily remedied. First determine if the source of interference really
is your FAX machine. To do this, turn its power off and on while observing the equipment
experiencing the interference. If the interference disappears when you turn the FAX machine
off, the following steps can be very effective in correcting interference problems:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Connect the FAX machine to an AC outlet which is on a different circuit breaker
from the equipment experiencing interference.
Increase the distance between the FAX machine and the equipment experiencing
interference.
Cable TV amplifiers and splitters are extremely prone to interference. Be certain
that they are as far as possible from the FAX machine and its AC power and telephone cords.
Replace “twin lead” antenna wire with shielded coaxial cable, and use proper
connectors and adaptors.
Turn or relocate the receiving antenna. In most cases this is easily done by simply moving a radio. A TV antenna may need to be re-oriented or installed in
another area of the building.
Consult your dealer, a reputable radio/TV technician, or an Amateur Radio
Operator for help.
*To locate an Amateur Radio Operator in your area, contact The American Radio Relay
League, 610 Main St., Newington, CT 06111.
Fax Branding
The Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991 makes it unlawful for any person to use a
computer or other electronic device to send any message via a telephone facsimile machine
unless such message clearly contains in a margin at the top or bottom of each transmitted page
or on the first page of the transmission the following information:
(1) the date and time of transmission
(2) identification of either business, business entity or individual sending the message; and
(3) telephone number of either the sending machine, business, business entity or individual.
See page 1.7 for instructions on how to enter this information into your Samsung FAX
machine’s memory.
The Telephone Company may make changes in its communications facilities, equipment
operations, or procedures where such action is reasonably required in the operation of its
business and is not inconsistent with the rules and regulations in FCC Part 68. If such changes
can be reasonably expected to render any customer terminal equipment incompatible with
telephone company communications facilities, or require modification or alteration of such
terminal equipment, or otherwise materially affect its use or performance, the customer shall
be given adequate notice in writing, to allow the customer an opportunity to maintain
uninterrupted service.
Telephone Company Information
FCC IDENTIFICATION NUMBER
The Ringer Equivalence Number and FCC Registration Number for this equipment may be
found on the label located on the bottom or rear of the machine. In some instances you may
need to provide these numbers to the telephone company.
RINGER EQUIVALENCE NUMBER
The Ringer Equivalence Number (REN) is a measure of the electrical load placed on the
telephone line, and is useful for determining whether you have “overloaded” the line.
Installing several types of equipment on the same telephone line may result in problems
making and receiving telephone calls, especially ringing when your line is called. The sum of
all Ringer Equivalence Numbers of the equipment on your telephone line should be less than
five in order to assure proper service from the telephone company. In some cases, a sum of
five may not be usable on your line. If any of your telephone equipment is not operating
properly, you should immediately remove it from your telephone line, as it may cause harm to
the telephone network.
WARNING:
FCC Regulations state that changes or modifications to this equipment not expressly approved
by the manufacturer could void the user’s authority to operate this equipment.
In the event that terminal equipment causes harm to the telephone network, the telephone
company should notify the customer that service may be stopped. However, where prior
notice is impractical, the company may temporarily cease service, providing that they:
a) Promptly notify the customer.
b) Give the customer an opportunity to correct the equipment problem.
c) Inform the customer of the right to bring a complaint to the Federal Communication
Commission pursuant to procedures set out in FCC Rules and Regulations Subpart E
of Part 68.
You should also know that:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Your Samsung FAX machine is not designed to be connected to a digital PBX
system.
Special features, such as “Call Waiting”, may interrupt FAX service, and we suggest that these services not be installed on the FAX line.
If you intend to use a computer modem or fax modem on the same phone line as
your FAX machine, you may experience transmission and reception problems
with all the equipment. It is recommended that no other equipment, except for a
regular telephone, share the line with your FAX machine.
If your area experiences a high incidence of lightning or power surges, we recommend that you install surge protectors for both the power and the telephone
lines. Surge protectors can be purchased from your dealer or telephone and electronic specialty stores.
When programming emergency numbers and/or making test calls to emergency
numbers, use a non-emergency number to advise the emergency service dispatcher of your intentions. The dispatcher will give you further instructions on
how to actually test the emergency number.
This equipment may not be used on coin service or party lines.
This telephone provides magnetic coupling to hearing aids.
You may safely connect this equipment to the telephone network by means of a
standard modular jack, USOC RJ-11C.

Sending a fax is very simple if you follow the instructions
starting from here. They will describe how to load the
document, set the resolution/contrast and dial the number.
Loading Document
1
2
Turn the page face down.
Be sure that your document is dry and free of
staples, paper clips, and other foreign objects. For
more information on what kind of paper you can
use for documents, see “Acceptable Documents
(for ADF)” on page 8-4.
Adjust the document guides to match the width
of the document, and load document consisting
of up to 15 sheets until the Automatic Document
Feeder seizes and pulls it in. The display will
indicate ‘DOCUMENT READY’ when it senses
that a document has been loaded.
•If you are sending more than one sheet, make sure the
bottom sheet enters first. Insert the sheets with a
slight push to ensure smooth feeding.
•To add pages while faxing, place them over the top
sheet. If you’re loading pages that are unusually thick
or thin, feed one sheet at a time. If the document
doesn’t feed correctly, open the Control Panel, remove
the document, and try loading it again.

Choose the proper resolution and contrast by
pressing Rcv. Mode/Contrast and Resolution
respectively.
•The default resolution is STANDARD and contrast is
NORMAL.
•For a normal document, it is not necessary to change
them.
Skip over this step. For more information on Resolution and Contrast, see “Setting Document Resolution
and Contrast” on page 3-3.

The Fax Machine
Setting Document Resolution
and Contrast
We recommend you send documents printed using a
typewriter, felt tip pen, black ink, or laserwriter. The paper
should be white or very light, and of normal weight not
cardboard.
Blue lines on a ruled pad don’t fax well. For more
information on what kind of paper you can use for
documents, see “Acceptable Documents (for ADF)” on
page 8-4.
When you send/copy normal documents, you need not adjust
the resolution and the contrast.
If you send/copy documents with unusual contrast
characteristics, including photographs, you can adjust the
resolution and contrast to send a high-quality transmission of
the documents.
To adjust the resolution and contrast after loading
document(s):
1
Press Resolution as many times as you want to
adjust the sharpness and clarity. There are three
resolution modes: STANDARD, FINE and
SUPER FINE.

STANDARD works well for printed or typewritten originals with normal-sized characters.
FINE is good for documents containing a lot of detail.
SUPER FINE works well for documents containing
extremely fine detail. SUPER FINE only works if the the
remote machine also has the SUPER FINE feature.
Press Rcv.Mode/Contrast as many times as you
want to adjust the darkness. There are four
contrast modes: NORMAL, LIGHTEN,
DARKEN and PHOTO.
NORMAL works well for normal handwritten, typed,
or printed documents.
LIGHTEN works with very dark print.
DARKEN works with light print or faint pencil markings.
PHOTO is used when faxing photographs or other
documents containing color or gray shades. When
Photo is chosen, the resolution is automatically set to
FINE.
When sending/copying is executed, resolution/contrast automatically returns to default.

Paging
When you’re out of the office or home and you want to be
notified whenever there’s new message left on your machine,
you need to use the Message Paging feature supplied with
your machine. In TAM Mode, you can set your machine to
transfer incoming calls to another number. In order to use the
Message Paging feature, you must set the Message Paging
option to ON. See “User Options” on page 6-7.
Message Paging operates as follows:
•
When a call comes in and the caller leaves a message, your machine automatically dials the telephone number you have specified when setting
Message Paging.
• When someone (maybe you) answers the call, your
machine sends out beeps, for up to 55 seconds, and
waits for the Remote Password to be entered. To
learn about Remote Password, see “TAM Options
(SF-3100T only)” on page 6-11. If you have entered a
correct password while your machine sends out
beeps, the machine plays the newly recorded messages.
• When the playback is complete, you hear a short
beep. You can then enter Remote Command at this
point to perform necessary operation. To learn
about Remote Commands, see “Using Remote Commands” on page 4-9.

to be sent is leaving the office. The person who wants to
receive the document at a later time places a call to the
machine holding the original, and requests that the document
be sent. In other words, it “requests” the machine holding the
original.

before the computer answers can vary, so using a preprogrammed pause after a service number is not advised.
However, you can store your ID number, for example, in one
memory location, and the rest of the information, such as your

DRPD MODE
(Distinctive Ring
Pattern
Detection)
‘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 on 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 phone.
Using the DRPD 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 recognized as a normal phone call.
You can easily suspend or change DRPD at any time.
Before using the DRPD option, Distinctive Ring service must be installed
on your telephone line by the telephone company. To set up DRPD, you
will need another telephone line at your location, or someone available to
dial your FAX number from outside.
Choose ‘SET’ to setup the Ring Pattern Detection. The LCD displays
‘WAITING RING’. 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]’.
Choose ON to Activate DRPD. With the DRPD feature active, ‘DRPD
MODE’ and the date and time appears in the display and the previously set
reception mode is ignored.
Choose OFF to cancel DRPD if it is currently active. All calls will be
answered normally, depending on Rcv. Mode setting.
Note:
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 machine answers the normal phone call.
ECM MODE
(Error
Correction Mode)
This mode compensates for poor line quality and ensures accurate, errorfree transmission with any other ECM-equipped facsimile machine. If the

Paper Type and Sizes (for the ASF1)
Satisfactory print and receive quality can be obtained with many types of plain paper. Since
the quality of plain paper varies widely, test the print quality before buying large quantities of
paper. Your machine uses a variety of papers including:
•Xerographic paper
•Bond paper
•Dual-purpose paper
Because all papers vary in physical characteristics, you can receive mixed results from
different packages of paper even though the packages contain the same type of paper. If you
encounter undesirable results, try the other side of the paper, a different type, or another
package of the same kind of paper.
DO NOT use the following types of paper with your machine:
•Continuous form feed paper
•Synthetic paper
•Thermal paper
•Multi-sheet forms and documents
•Chemically treated paper
•Papers with raised, embossed lettering
To load paper with a preferred print side:
•If you’re using xerographic paper, load the paper with the preferred print side facing
down.
•If you’re using letterhead or bond paper, load the paper with the preferred side facing
up.
The following papers can be used in your machine for fax:
