20 Most Recent OKIFAX 4580 Plain Paper LED Fax Questions & Answers

Sometimes the fuse in the drum blows but the printer does not register it so it still thinks a new drum is required. You can find new fuses on ebay. Its cheaper than buying another new drum. Also put a new drum in with the power turned off. Once the lid is closed then turn the power back on and then the fuse will blow at the correct time.

We switch our off, wait 10 seconds, switch on & fax is printed. We don't think we have lost any faxes this way but be aware it might happen.

usually this is just a matter of a dirty rollers or developer...just open it and clean it well ...and reset it and try again ...from static electricity some corps adhere to the rollers or in the developer area and they retain toner and cause these vertical stripes..When the drum is out ..it makes much more damage to the page...
So ..just try to clean all the parts that get in touch with the paper..also check the cartridges for leaks ....

Hi just a note to say first theing to check is that the phone line is connected at both ends to correct sockets and that the connector to teh fax unit is connected to the line socket and not the phone socket as this is the main cause of line errors.. Good luck you could also check to see of you need to dial 0 or 9 first before you dial your number as you ma y be on an exchange line.. also check the fax settings to see if you have set the line type correctly either pulse or tbx..

Fax machine just possibly needs a good cleaning.

if the fax is connected to the same line and you have a phone connected to the fax you need to make sure you connect the line from the socket at wall to the correct socket on the fax you can check this by looking at the point the line is connected on fax there should be two connectors one says line and one says tel.. the line in goes to the line socket and your telephone goes into the tel socket.. if you have them the other way round it cant connect properly..on the front display panel make sure you have it set to the auto setting or tel fax mode for receive.. if you have it to auto it will check the incoming call if it is a fax it will send it through if not it will ring till you answer.. if set to tel/fax mode when it rings you will have to answer the phone and manually press start if you hear it is a fax.. Good luck A

Does this happen when you perform a test print such as an activity report or config page? if it does you may have a transfer roller issue. The transfer roller is the long black spongy roller directly under the drum, the metal rod in the roller conducts a charge that interacts with the drum. If the roller is dirty (usually chocked up with toner) the necessary charge is diminished and the image will be lighter. You will have to remove the roller in order to clean it, (TURN THE POWER OFF) there is a bendable plastic tab at the right side end of the roller that will release the roller. I personally drench the roller with metho and then wrap a rag around it and squeeze the metho/toner out (dont do this with lexmark rollers, they deform) let dry and give it a try, also check the end of the metal rod and where it connects for contamination.

Sometimes if there was a paper jam and someone removed it without getting all of the paper, then there could be a small piece of paper still in the way of the sensor. If you have any compressed air it might help to blow it out of the sensor area. I have had issues with that in the past as well, so I opened up the area it said it was jammed - gave it a good going over with the can of compresses air, and it seemed to clear out the jam.
