That will be the drum unit arching you will probably need a new drum unit. you can try cleaning the drum some times that helps'

PS. remove the toner before you clean the drum unit use compress air and make sure you are outside the house it is messy.

I get a white line through but it is not telling me to change toner?


This can occur if you receive a lot of faxes that may have a vertical block or a lot of text or pictures etc. in the same location on the page. The toner can be used in that particular area of the page and a white line results.

Remove the toner cartridge from the fax, keep it horizontal. Shake it side to side whilst keeping the cartridge horizontal. This redistributes the toner inside the cartridge. Replace the toner cartridge in the fax.

Hope this helps.

Yeah, pretty much s(****). That message means the polygon mirror in the laser unit is not spinning up.

If you want to try to fix it, it's a square black box under the top covers. You can take it apart and oil the mirror shaft.

Sounds like you may need to clean the optics. Open up the area where you insert the original to copy, there you will find a small long glass that needs to be cleaned, I would suspect there is white out on this causing you lines or it may just be dirty.

Hope this helps...

The fax does not work - the displaye states sending and receiving but nothing happens. we have tested the phone line and tried plugging in to a different socket. the line rings but does not convert to the...


Most likely the modem is bad in the fax machine.
But a make and model number would help.
Some have the fax boards seperate, some are incorporated in the processor board.
Also it could just need the software reloaded or updated.
If you have a digital line, the majority of fax machines today STILL require an analogue line.
But a make and model number would be very helpful.
Thank you.

HOW TO STOP VERY LOUD SCREECHING RING


Assuming there's nothing in the manual that tells you how to stop it. Is there a hole where the sound comes from? Block it up with blu-tack or sticky tape. Regards
