It could be a bad drum unit. If the drum doesnt turn smoothly it will make a clicking or grinding noise since it is gear driven. Take out the drum and turn the gear with your thumb. turm towards you. If difficult Thats it. It also could be a fuser gear. good luck Lawrence

The fact that the phone was ringing and the fax answered the call doesn't necessarily mean, that it was a fax transmission; someone might have called your number and tried to talk, but hung up hearing the fax beep.
You have to ask someone with a working fax machine to try and send you something, then you will be sure whether your fax works fine or not.
If this check will prove that it's indeed your machine that has some issue, then look for any error lights or messages on the display. If there was something wrong with paper, printing head, drive or whatever, you would certainly get some error message.

The fax machine is trying to print fax recieved copies on the bypass feeder.
Check up the setup menu on the control console.
Fine fax recieve.
You should find a selection for fax recieved in which paper tray.
Check this area, any that have the bypass feeder, de-select it.
Make selections for 8 1/2 x 11 paper in tray one.

Straight line comes up when i make a copy or fax to some one


if your received faxes look good and this only happens when you fax someone or make a copy, lift up your document feeder and you will see a glass under it that is about an 1.5" wid and runs left to right. something is on that glass. perhaps whiteout or something like that. clean that off good and you should be fine. if it doesn't take care of problem, write back.

I just have one thought. You may have accidentaly turned off the auto recieve function. This is normally a program function on the display panel. Make sure it is set for auto recieve. Thats all I can think of.
