We can receive faxes, but cannot send

Are you using a digital telephone line or analog. Fax machines still run on analog technology and can't handle the speeds of DSL or Cable lines. This could be your issue.

1. Press the [F2] key. “ this key is located on the left side of the Control Panel next to the key [12] from the left side and next to the [Memory Trans.] key from the rigt side ”
2. Press the left arrow key to select the reception mode “ this key is located under the Display of the Control Panel”
3. Press the [OK] key when on the display is displayed the mode you want.
note:as you sad you want the machine to reaceive faxes when you are out of the office, so the reception mode [Auto Select] is the most compaible mode for you.
The machine can treat incoming fax
messages and telephone calls in three
1.Manual Receive
- Use this mode if your line is shared
by a fax machine and a telephone
but you wish to answer all calls
yourself and decide whether they
are fax documents or telephone
calls. You must manually press the
[Start] key to receive a fax.
The machine will ring continuously
until you answer the call, so you
have to be near the machine at all
times. The Manual Receive indicator
is lit when the machine is in this
2. Auto Receive
- Use this mode if you have a dedicated
fax line. The machine assumes
all calls are fax documents.
It will ring once to alert you of an
incoming call, and then starts receiving.
3. Auto Select
- In this mode, the machine rings a
number of times. You can answer
the call while the machine is ringing.
If you do not answer the call,
the machine automatically changes
to receive fax messages.

Hey Logjam

Is the fax line an extension off a PBX? If it is, you need to insert a 9 in front of the number. If you have to dial a 9 from your phone to dial out, then your fax machine may also have to dial the 9.

Error message 3-31H

This is a failure of the polygonal mirror motor. To check, Test point CN14-4 on the FDU board. If it does not go to low within 10sec of the motor being turned on. Motor has failed. Also check test point CN 14-1 that +24v is supplied to the motor.

This is a common problem, it is simple to change. However, the machine must be reset after each test.

Ricoh Fax 3800L Error code

Hi there the error code that you are getting appears to be for the left lock where the fuser is make sure that the door is shut fully and turn the machine off then on again if this doesn't work then it is more likely to be the laser unit and this will need replacing.

Hope this is of some help to you.

Thanks J

Service Call 3-31H is displayed on the screen

The technical manual is stating that the problem is with the left lock lever make sure that the door is shut correctly power down then back on again. If the problem comes back I think it maybe the laser unit then and it will need replacing.

Thanks J
