Question about Xerox WorkCentre M20i All-In-One Laser Printer

1 Answer

Copier quality Hello, When fax are sent the receiver of the fax cant not read the fax. Its almost looks like the fax was printed on a machine with low toner. Also the copies are coming out when light. Its almost like the lamp is going or maybe the scanner part. The machine is 2.5 yrs old with about 105K copies on it. Someone also told me that the power supply is going since sometime the machine works fine but now the problem is getting worse. I am not sure whether to replace the unit or try to repair it.

Hi,

Most fax machines would have a resolution selector to vary clarity of transmitted documents. The same would also hold true for scanning jobs. I would discount the possibility of the power supply since everything works except for the quality of the copy/fax. If the printer still works OK (quality of print out) then it is the scanner's availability to copy that is the issue. With current prices of all in one printers (fax/scanner), purchase of a new unit might be more practical not only in terms of cost but in downtime.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    I was made to understand that in your particular machine, there is a resolution button marked so located bottom left of the display. The higher the resolution (dpi), the better the quality of the scan/fax. But of course may take more time processing/sending.

    Additionally, you may want to try and clean the CVT glass. If there are screws retaining said glass and they can be removed, it may also provide you access to clean the lamp and any mirrors that may be present.

ECM error message


Noise in the phone line, or low signal strength during fax transmission can result in fax failures. Noise or poor signal strength can cause a partial or complete loss of fax information during transmission. When Error Correction Mode (ECM) is on, the receiving fax machine checks the fax information for errors during reception. If the receiving fax machine detects an error, the receiving fax requests that the sending fax resend the information. Resending all or part of the information can make transmission times longer, but helps improve the quality of the received fax.
If the phone line quality or signal strength is extremely poor, sending a fax can fail. Turning off ECM can improve the ability of the product to send a fax successfully when the phone line quality is poor. However, the image quality of the received fax might be poor.
If ECM must be off to send faxes successfully, have the telephone service provider check the phone line quality. For an HP Fax, turning off ECM from the control panel does not necessarily mean that fax transmission will not use ECM. Fax products use ECM as follows.
  • All faxes sent in color use ECM.
  • All faxes sent at the highest transmission speed use ECM.
  • The ECM setting affects only sent faxes, not received faxes.
Enabling or disabling Error correction mode (ECM)
  1. On the product control panel, press the Menu button (c01743394.gif ).
  2. Use the arrow buttons (c01073166.jpg ) to select Basic Fax , and then press the OK button (c01335940.jpg ).
  3. Use the arrow buttons (c01073166.jpg ) to select ECM Mode , and then press the OK button (c01335940.jpg ).
  4. Use the arrow buttons (c01073166.jpg ) to select On or Off , and then press the OK button (c01335940.jpg ) to confirm the setting.
  5. Press the Back button (c01496476.gif ) twice to return to the main screen.

Several recepients cant read my fax, very feint. Is it a fault with my fax?


Try making a copy on your machine and see what the copy looks like.
What are you sending,??? if its a second carbon copy of something...remember what you see is what you get...if the original is poor quality the receiver will get poor quality. You can darken the image slightly...refer to your operators manual.

The machine told you poor line quality. Try a different phone line to verify. Try it at a friends house to verify it. If you are using Vonage, that is the problem. I have Vonage and every fax I test with has some issues with poor line.

Not sure if faxes have been sent successfully how can i tell?


I am not technically qualified for faxes but most fax machines i have used have a setting that allows you to have a receipt that prints off after you have sent one, this is something that can be turned off if not wanted, look in the manual and it will tell you how to reset it, i think it was called "polling" after a fax has been sent it prints off this little bit that says what time it was sent how many copies and time received, fax number it was sent to and sometimes company name etc some machines i have seen and used have a poll button after you have sent your fax, try just pressing it, it may print out a conformation receipt of the last ten faxes sent hope i have helped, if so rate me please
