Re: Techinical glitch?

This unit is not well made at all. I would suggest you exchange it if it is still under warranty. In the future, buy a HP or Epson with extended warranty.

Whenever i send a fax, the machine confirms by viewing 'TRANSMITTING OK' but the addressee receives a blank document

Check the baud rate of your transmissions. Slow them down to the slowest setting and send a test fax to a helpful person. Slowly increase the baud rate (communication data speed) and send the fax test. When the fax doesn't show up on the receive site, then step one baud rate speed back, and save the setting.

It could also be your fax that is faulty, or even the receive sites fax, also being faulty.

To test your copy-head, insert a document into your loading section of the fax and press copy. If the copy prints out fine, then you know the head is reading correctly.

It is also possible that the receiver fax (the other end) has a printhead failure.

Get a black strip when I try to copy or fax a paper. Able to receive a fax without problems. Replaced drum and cartridge and cleaned what I could see, but strip is still there.

sorry but the drum has nothing to do with the SCAN problem, only for PRINTING problems, if you have a BLACK STRIP when you scan, you must check the SCANNING lamp for obstruction (liquid paper contaminant) on the scanning window or for other debrie that prevent the scanner to scan properly is it a dual feed??? (flat bed or top load)???

How do u load paper? front or back side up?

Hi, It dosen`t matter how you load paper, Copy paper are blank on both side, now if you are reusing paper with prints on one side then you do it by trial and error.
Now if you meant how to load document on top, then that`s a different story, most fax machines require that you put the document face down. I would suggest that you make a copy from a document face down and if it comes out ok, fine, if the copy comes out blank then you need to put the document face up instead.
Hope this helps.

Can't send or receive fax

Your product must be accidently set to copy mode instead of fax mode and when it is, it actually expects a document to be loaded in the tray to "scan/copy" so change to fax mode again and try to sent the document. This should fix your problem.

If you do want to make a copy, make sure a doc. is loaded and press start copy to do so.
