The machine USUALLY tells you you are low on ink. It 's possible one or all cartridges are dried up.

I received several important faxes that did not print, just blank paper. Then I realized I was out of ink. Anyway to retreve those lost faxes?


Not normally...once the machine "thinks" it has printed the information the actual Data is no longer kept in memory...there may be a record of the fax being recieved but not the actual Data.

Blank line on received faxes


first off, try printing a report from the front panel. hit "reports" button and print out the help list or any of the lists. if problem is present, try taking out your drum unit, look at the top and you'll see a blue or purplish colored plastic tab. note which side its on and move the tab from side to side a few times, making sure you put tab back on side where it was. if you look down in the slot the tab rides in, you'll see some wires that look like guitar strings. if there is alot of toner on those, you might want to use canned air CAREFULLY and blow those off a little, THEN do the plastic tab thing.

Will not stop faxing the same document


There should be a memory clear procedure in the menu to stop that.
You will have to reenter the time date, your phone and business name once you clear the memory.
I dont have a book for that particular machine, but faxs do have a memory clear feature for lock ups like that.

Blank vertical stripes on incoming faxes


1st. Print a report. If the blank stripes are still there, you must remove the drum and t6oner combination and clean the laser glass located on the bottom of the machine.
If the blank stripes do not appear, then the fault is on the scanner of the sending fax machine.
