Rapid loud popping sound for 3 to 4 seconds before printing

The popping noise is coming from the carriage belt jumping on the drive motor cog. It indicates that the cartridge carriage is jamming while the motor keeps spinning. It may be due to a wedge of paper at either end of the carriage bar (horizontal rod) or it may be due to a failing main board circuit.

Fax display says, close back cover even with back cover closed.

Open the front cover and remove the drum and toner(cartridge) There should be a paperjam in the machine. It reads back cover open because the piece of paper is covering the sensor for the back cover.

Can't send faxes , keeps saying document jamed

Open the front cover by pulling it towards you (that is the cover where are the digits and other function keys), see if any paper has inside and than close the front cover and press the " Stop " button.
Remember if you do not close the front cover good the message will still appear on the screen because the machine thinks that the cover is not closed. That happen because of the sensor on the front cover which detects do the front cover is closed so check dose the door is good closed. If your machine do not pull the documents in the " document feeder " than open the front cover and you will see pair of rubbers inside, clean them with alcohol or glass cleaner and clean peace of cloth.
