How do you load a new ink cartridge?


Replacing the Print Cartridge
1 Open the front cover, and then open the top cover by pressing the blue levers on both sides of the top cover.
2 Remove the old print cartridge containing the used ribbon and dispose of it.
3 Remove the plastic stopper from the new print cartridge.
Note You can reuse the print cartridge until it breaks. If you purchased refill ribbons, follow the instructions that came with them.
4 Turn the black spool on the right clockwise to tighten the ribbon as shown.
5 Install the new print cartridge by inserting the recessed first, and then placing
the cartridge into its four holders.
6 Press down on both sides of the top cover to close it securely.
7 Close the front cover.

Vertical Black Lines When Receiving
The sender's scanner may be dirty. Ask the sender to make a copy to see if the
problem is with the sending machine. Try receiving from another fax machine.

You can save money by purchasing the 2-PK Refill Ribbon Rolls (PC302RF).

carefully, you can reuse it until it breaks.

There is nowhere I can find whether I should switch on the Machine 24hr a day x 7 days a week. Or shall I swtich it off after-office-hours? Any effect on the life-span of the machine?


In a business environment most fax machines are left on 24/7......who wants to miss an order coming in because your fax was OFF. However, many fax machines can be programmed to go into a "sleep mode"...this would be in the evening when the office is closed...you still want to be able to recieve fax's if any come in..but you don't need the machine ON "fully" ready to print. Another-words, the machine is in a sleep/half power mode( because no-one is in the office to use it )..BUT if a fax comes in then the machine can still recieve it, then it "wakes-up" fully..prints out the recieved pages, and then goes back to sleep again. The details on how to program this function will be in your operators manual IF the feature is available on your model.
The benifits of programming a machine this way are pretty obvious...savings on Hydro, extended machine life ( due to machine going to sleep.) and yet you still dont miss any calls.
Pretty good hey.!!

Fax printing problem


The blue release lever that holds the ribbon cartride may be cracked or broken. The crack may be so fine, that it's not easy to see, so look carefully. Even the slightest crack will cause the ribbon cartridge to fit loosely enough so that the roller is not touching the paper. Whatever side is not printing, that's the lever that you should look at. That's what happened to mine. I was ready to buy a new machine, until I found that solution. To test it, I tried to copy something while pushing down on that side of the ribbon cartridge, and it printed fine--the whole page. I looked more closely at the lever, and found the crack.

Ink cartridges, recieving fax


It sound like your machine is receiving but as soon as it tries to prints the fax it has this problem.

Rewind the ink ribbon so it is nice and tight in the housing. Clean the black roller above it with some cleaning alcohol or equivalent (nothing too harsh).

See how that goes if you are still having problems replace the whole cartridge (not the refills) PC-401.

Make sure ribbon is installed correctly. Also check inside the tray area to see if the rubber roller and or the rubber separator pad is dislodged. Obviously not worth repairing unless under warranty.
