Question about Fax Machines

1 Answer

Poor print quality

Each line of print has what looks like a white line passing horizontally through all the characters, obscuring at least a third of all the characters. The white line is where no ink has reached the page.

Best regards,

Phil

Hi Phil,

HP1020 fax answer phone etc


Digital answer phones record the message on a memory chipset in the same way old tape machines did using a magnetic support. Quality can only be improved by the technology itself, problem is with your specific machine.
If you have a broadband filter try replacing it.
Test the machine on a different phone socket and see if it makes any difference.
Check on your answering machine settings, you should find an option to control volume.

The outgoing faxes are becoming unreadable, any idea as to why this is occuring and what we can do to fix it?


I will look it up in the morning, I don't have that information with me at the moment, But there is a scanner calibration you can do to correct it.
You have to enter some codes and simply run white paper through the scanner to reset the values. But off hand I can't remember the exact numbers. I will get look them up and send it on here.
It is not hard to do at all. Will take about 2 or 3 minutes.

Clean the optical area with a soft cotton piece of cloth and window cleaner. How does the cartrige looks like, if you see toner on the drum you may consider replacing the cleaning bladeand the drum if necessary. The cartridge was refilled?

The machine told you poor line quality. Try a different phone line to verify. Try it at a friends house to verify it. If you are using Vonage, that is the problem. I have Vonage and every fax I test with has some issues with poor line.

Very poor printing


If the prints are light or have white lines it will be related to the laser unit. There is a strip of glass that sits above the drum inside the machine. Clean it. If there is toner on it will cause this problem. Otherwise the laser unit has failed.

If you have dark marks, blotches or reprinting (part of the image repeating lighter down the page). It will be build up on the fuser rollers. Remove the drum/toner and look at the rollers behind, they will look dirty. The only way to resolve this is to replace the fuser unit as it is worn out.

The only other possibility is that the drum contact on the sides of the machine are deformed or out of position. Its hard to tell and fairly unlikely in this model.

Poor Quality


If you can copy ok you have effectively ruled out your machine as you have used both the scanning and printing mechanism of the machine.

It will probably be the fax on the other end as if it sends a poor quality page that's all your machine can receive, a poor line can also cause problems if it is from multiple faxes. If so have your provider check the line (you probably hear static on the line).
