Sounds like shred blades are bent down into each other.

UNPLUG.

If you can get the top off, you may be able to use a large screw driver to straighten out the blades.

ECM error message


Noise in the phone line, or low signal strength during fax transmission can result in fax failures. Noise or poor signal strength can cause a partial or complete loss of fax information during transmission. When Error Correction Mode (ECM) is on, the receiving fax machine checks the fax information for errors during reception. If the receiving fax machine detects an error, the receiving fax requests that the sending fax resend the information. Resending all or part of the information can make transmission times longer, but helps improve the quality of the received fax.
If the phone line quality or signal strength is extremely poor, sending a fax can fail. Turning off ECM can improve the ability of the product to send a fax successfully when the phone line quality is poor. However, the image quality of the received fax might be poor.
If ECM must be off to send faxes successfully, have the telephone service provider check the phone line quality. For an HP Fax, turning off ECM from the control panel does not necessarily mean that fax transmission will not use ECM. Fax products use ECM as follows.
  • All faxes sent in color use ECM.
  • All faxes sent at the highest transmission speed use ECM.
  • The ECM setting affects only sent faxes, not received faxes.
Enabling or disabling Error correction mode (ECM)
  1. On the product control panel, press the Menu button (c01743394.gif ).
  2. Use the arrow buttons (c01073166.jpg ) to select Basic Fax , and then press the OK button (c01335940.jpg ).
  3. Use the arrow buttons (c01073166.jpg ) to select ECM Mode , and then press the OK button (c01335940.jpg ).
  4. Use the arrow buttons (c01073166.jpg ) to select On or Off , and then press the OK button (c01335940.jpg ) to confirm the setting.
  5. Press the Back button (c01496476.gif ) twice to return to the main screen.

My shredmaster GEX106 motor doesn't stop running when the paper has finished shredding. It's our second shredder that has done this.


Try cleaning the "eyes" in the middle where you put the paper in...they may just be dirty/dusty.

My GBC Shredmaster 2260X is jammed and I can not clear it. The teeth try to rotate when stimulated but something is jamming it. Where can I go for service? I am in murfreesboro, TN.


you can do it yourself!! it take a little bit of time and patience. do it in an area that you can clean easily. take off and unplug the top, turn upside down, get a flat screw driver and start removing all the papers in the teeth area. from time to time you will need to put it bank and turn it on and make it go forward and reverse.

Recieving fax error


It could be a bad drum unit. If the drum doesnt turn smoothly it will make a clicking or grinding noise since it is gear driven. Take out the drum and turn the gear with your thumb. turm towards you. If difficult Thats it. It also could be a fuser gear. good luck Lawrence
