Follow the instructions listed below:

The machine has a mechanical
problem.
—OR—
A foreign objects such as a clip or
ripped paper is in the machine.

Open the scanner cover and remove any foreign
objects inside the machine. If the error message
continues, see Transferring your faxes or Fax
Journal report on page 90 before disconnecting
the machine so you will not lose any important
messages. Then, disconnect the machine from
the power for several minutes and then
reconnect it.

Try this and let me know if this helped solve the problem. Binary Bob

Hi,

Go Menu
Type in *2864
Type in 10
Code WSW00 shows
Type in 51
Code WSW51 0000001 will show
Try different values, eg change to 000000 or 0000010
BUT remember original code to get back to

If we can find the code table we can work with these machines
