Sounds like switch inside operations panel has broken, there is no reset that will fix it, will need new operations panel.

the reset code on this machine is menu # 2 8 6 4 then maintence shows enter 99, the first bit must be done super quick.

Copy machine is stuck in the copy mode


Sounds like the machine does not have a fax board on it. Have you been able to fax in the past?

If nothing else, try rebooting the machine, then have your servicing dealer come out to check the fax board module if rebooting doesnt help.

    Phantom jams & button undetection


    Sounds like a button may be stuck or something. Reset machine by powering off, press and hold start button at same time while powering machine back up. Hold the start button down for a few seconds and release. This should help. Let me know if it does not and I may be able to walk you through another bit harder reset.
