Re: Nox faxing and black copies

Make sure there is nothing stuck in paper path or the scanner lens is not dirty.

take out toner/drum tray and reinsert it to make sure nothing is preventing drum from turning or stuck.

then try to use

Every time I fax or copy a perfect sheet of paper both the fax received and the copy have a 2 inch wide solid black line on the right. How do I fix the machine?

Have you tried replacing the ribbon cartridge? If that doesn't resolve the problem, then there is a fault with the thermal imaging head. You did say both Recieved faxes and copies, correct? If faxes you send out are clear, then the above mentioned would be correct. Let me know, please.

Black pages on every fax I send

Is sounds like your exposure lamp is not coming on, put an original in the machine and make a copy, if you look where the original is coming out, you should be able to see a light illuminatig the original so the scanner can read the image. If this lamp is not coming on you will get a very dark to black image.
If it is just locked up is may be as easy as this. Turn off and unplug the machine for a couple of minutes, reconnect and power up the machine, make a copy. as the machins uses the same parts to copy you should see the result of your efforts.
If the copy look good, try a test fax to someone, and call them for confirmation.

If this doesn't fix the problem, then I suspect the exposure lamp unit has failed.

Hope this is of some help.

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.

Samsung Fax/phone model 1600

You could try opening the feeder and clean the gray rollers with mentholated spirits and see how that helps as it just maybe the rollers are slipping slightly.

Once you have done the above take out all of the paper from the back feed and using one sheet blot the leading edge with some spirit and place back into the machine (The back of it) then try coping something there will be a paper jam and do this a couple of times. Once you have done this wipe the area dry put new paper in and then try doing a copy and the paper should feed perfectly now and the test will come when fax comes in.

I do hope this helps you
Thanks J

It's time to change NEW DRUM UNIT..and that's why your Toner will Not Last Longer because unnecessary toner (the black lines) will be on the copy every time the fax comes or you make a copy.

Says paper jam, but it is not really jammed

There are a couple of sensors that read paper paper jams. Below the toner/drum asm check to see if the little black flags are moving freely. In the rear, open the door and check the flag in the fuser.

How Can I Reprint a Fax?

Here's a trick that I used on the Canon thermal transfer years ago. First take out the thermal transfer unit and roll up the black transfer sheet to the begining of the lost fax. Then reload the paper. Next get a solid black original equal and make a copy. The result you should get a negative copy of the lost fax. Repeat this step until all the faxes are recovered..
