Question about Fax Machines

1 Answer

Minolta Fax 3600

I have come in to the office Sat & Sun to find the fax machine giving an error "polygonal error". Faxes received have alot of horizontal lines across the pages and some pages are stored in memory. I disconnect power supply, then reconnect and pages in memory print out with same horizontal lies. Is machine scrap? It has to be 10 years old or better.

Yeah, pretty much s(****). That message means the polygon mirror in the laser unit is not spinning up.

If you want to try to fix it, it's a square black box under the top covers. You can take it apart and oil the mirror shaft.

POLYGONAL ERROR / WHAT DOES THIS MEANS AND HOW I WILL REST IT... THANKS


Polygon error. There is a LASER inside the machine which hits a 5 sided minor spinning at about 35000 rpm. That minor is spun my the polygon motor. More then likely you have a bad print head. That is what the entire assy. LASER/motor/Minor/Sensors are called. Power off/then on if it comes back have a technician looks at it.

We have two fax machines hook up to one dedicated fax line. When we send a fax from wither machine it is not faxing to the phone we fax it only sends the fax for the second fax machine that is in our...


Yes, you must set up your fax machines like this: The receiving fax must be set to auto receive and the telephone line must be inserted in the "line" input. A line must then be connected from the "Tel" to the "Line" of the Transmitting machine, which must be set to "manual receive." This is not really a satisfactory way of doing things as you can't send and receive 2 machines on the same line together. A much better way is to have 2 lines. with a machine attached to each. Get the tel company to put "No answer transfer" on the line as an accesory. Give them the number of the fax machine that transmits. Make it "manual receive" Now you have a versatile system that you can also use the office telephone with.

I cannot receive the faxes. everything else works


It could be a number of things. Could be a phone line issue.

I have seen this with alot of HP style fax machines. It may be to low end to receive from some of the higher end fax machines.
