Re: Machine gets hot
Looks like the fuser is overheating. This means that you will have to remove the fuser and strip it down for cleaning and/or replacemnet of some parts, such as the thermostat, thermistor and hot roller.

Unfortunatley, with laser printers it is not unusual to notice a burning smell. Sometimes that could mean that there is paper jammed inside your fuser assembly and it is being burned when power is applied. However, there could be a number of reasons why the machine won't function. My recommendation is to have a certified technician look at the machine for you. It may cost you $45-$75 to have someone check it out for and tell you what the cost would be to fix.
Do your incoming faxes have the same marks?
If not you might find that the scanning part of your machine has a dirty mark on the glass or that the unit has become faulty.
Try and take a copy from the machine and print from a report or any print from memory.
If you have the black lines on both then i'd suggest getting a new drum unit, if u have it only on the copy I would have a look at your scanner glass and see if there is a dirty mark on it. if not maybe call out an engineer as the scanner unit maybe faulty.
Need anymore help msg me.
It sound like the paper is not getting recognised by the original sensor. Check for an obstruction in the feedpath - piece of paper, paper clip, pin, cockroach, apple core, tube of cake decorator (I've seen it all). Do this by opening the control panel cover (the one you open when you replace your cartridge and look through where the original feeds. Also see if the original sensor arm is in place. In the white plate there will be a black arm. The original sensor arm will be directly behind this sensor.
there maybe a small paper jam in the machine that you are missing. if you are handy, unplug the fax machine and look around where the paper is fed into. if you see paper trapped anywhere, try pulling it out with a pair of needle nose pliers. the machine will not work right till the jam is cleared.
hope this helps.
