One needs to know what they are doing when resetting memory to the machine.
When resetting the machine, one needs to consider, the loss of memory data on the copy cartridge counter in the machine.
When resetting memory a copy toner cartridge needs to be in stock with a counter reset card.
Erasing memory will wipe out the old copy/toner cartridge odometer setting, resuling in "Replace toner/cartridge" error.
Please clarify which memory area is being erased.
Check menu,8,2. You may be able to print out the road map on the different menue configuration.
You should be able to print out by
selecting menu ,*, 8 and printed with Menu, "*", 1.
Not seeing the machine is difficult to see the different ways the menus are going to.
Technical parameters are different and has a different enter mode. This needs to be researched further for explination.
Good luck, this may take a lead in the right direction.
This would be an expensive process event to try an old card when entering a used modual. The card resents the main board the the card cannot be used again.
If anything else send the cartridges back to Xerox.
If you try to experiment with a new card, and an old drum, chances are you will create new problems for the Xerox repairman to fix.
Keep a new supply of toners and drums and make sure each item has the card in the box, and do not allow the customers or casual operatiors, including Managers!!!! , to swap theses items on their own.
They are too expensive to trouble-shoot and experiment with.
First of all, I beleive the machine came with software on the disc. If you have not installed the software, install it. There might be some menus in the computer and the Fax machine, so you can change these settings to manual and automatic.
The machine should have a operators manual also, check the manual for manual fax recieving.
Also we do not know if you are using XP or Vista.
Check with Xerox.com for latest drivers and software updates.
Even though the fax is connected to the computer, there has to be a bridge that communicates these fax procesess.
This might be a service call you would need with Xerox.
On the machine there is a menu button.
the menu can be printed out so you can see all the areas to select.
If you scroll to through the menu, you will find a set up or incoming fax menu.
You need to set confirmation to off.
This will take some time to find the right menu, so be patient with the machine.
If this is on a network your network tech needs to set up your machine through one of the routers.
If the machine was pluged into the phone socet direct, there would be no problem. The phone will ring constantly, until you plug the phone to the machine.
If the machine does not answer the phone, then the problem maybe in the machines confguration for auto answer, or a modem board not working.
But on a network, the computer is trying to find the signal, but can't because it cannot find the machines signal.
This problem is in the network side. Check with your network specialist.
I believe there should be a "Clear memory", or "dump fax Memory", in the menu selection.
Press reports and scroll to machine print out. You should get a print out on the machines configuration and help menu to better assist you.
This should dump the memory so you can prepare yourself for new incoming faxex.
