FAX machine prints a dark band down one side of the paper

I use my (quite old) thermal fax machine as a copier.

It is putting a dark wide band down one side fo the paper. I have cleaned the glass where the scanning takes place, and the white strip above it, but that did not help.

When I use it to send a fax, the recipient complains about the dark line too.

No problem, but don't know if the print goes face side up por down into the printer when faxing


Where you put the paper must be a little icon like a page with lines, if you see this put the paper face up. I am surprise you did not check with a fax recipient to see if they got it (Blank paper or the fax)

Incoming faxes have dark bands accross the page. The bands are 1/4" wide and spaced about 1 1/2 " apart.


Sounds like it needs a new drum. You'll have to replace the toner at the same time.

BLANK PAPER


If you receive a fax with blank pages , nine times out of 10 the answer is that the sender fed one or more of the sheets into the fax machine upside down or backward. You can confirm that this is what happened by noting whether the header (lines of sender information) is present.
You could also be experiencing a technical or mechanical problem, such as a need to fix or change parts. You can test whether your machine can print at all by using its “copy” function, or print an activity report. If all is well on your end, the problem must be with the sender’s machine.
If, by any chance, you’re using an old thermal fax machine, check to see if the roll of paper has been put in backward, because if that’s the case the heads won’t print on the side that isn’t heat-sensitive.

Thanks for using Fixya.
