Your document scanner has failed. Verify by making a copy with the machine. If it comes out black then your document scanner is dead. It will be cheaper to replace the fax machine rather than repair it. These types of machines have come down in price making it no longer feasable to make such a major repair.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.

NEED 2 PROGRAM COVER PAGE


Cover Sheet
You can have the fax machine generate a cover sheet and send it as the last page of your fax transmission. The cover sheet includes the date and time, the receiver's name and number if a Rapid Key or Speed Dial number is used, the sender's name and number, and the total number of pages.
? Your name and number must be programmed in order for them to appear
on the cover sheet (see page 49).
? To have the recipient's name appear, you must dial using a Rapid Key or
Speed Dial number with the name programmed.
1 Load the document(s).
• SEND READY will appear in the display.
• Press RESOLUTION and/or CONTRAST to set the resolution and contrast if needed.
Press Cover Sheet. (Flip up the Rapid Key overlay if it is down.)
• The display will briefly show COVER SHEET MODE ENTERED and then
revert to SEND READY.
• To cancel the cover sheet selection, press STOP.
3 Dial the receiving party and transmit the fax.
If desired, you can set your fax to automatically send a cover sheet with every
transmission (you do not have to press COVER SHEET each time). This is
accomplished by setting Option Setting 10 (Auto Cover Sheet) to YES as
explained on page 125.

Hi, Remote Fax Error being displayed


NOTE this option may vary to printer try USING OPTIONS TO SET CHANGES


To resolve the problem, try the steps below. After each step, try to send a fax again.

1. As some fax machines are not capable of receiving color faxes, legal size faxes, or faxes at 200x200 dpi resolution, make sure you are sending an A4 or letter size (not legal size) page at standard resolution:
* Press the Black button for a black-and-white fax. Press the Quality button to check the selected resolution.
2. Make sure the All-In-One has enough memory free when you want to save the scanned documents into memory before sending the fax. Please refer to the following document: Click here to link to the relevant document.
Note: The scanned documents will only be saved in the memory before the whole fax is sent if the Scan Before Dial option is turned on. (This is the factory default.) Up to 50 black-and-white fax pages can be stored in memory at standard resolution when there are no pending faxes in the queue.
3. Turn off the Scan Before Dial option by pressing the following keys on the operator panel:
1. Press the Fax button, then press Options untill u see ADVANCED FAX mode.
2. Press Select.
3. Press Options nine times until SCAN BEFORE DIAL appears on the LCD display.
4. Change the setting from Yes to No using the + (right arrow) button.
5. Press Select.
Note: The Scan Before Dial option controls whether a document is scanned before a call is dialed. This parameter only applies to a mono fax that uses either 200x100 or 200x200 resolution. Higher resolution mono faxes and all color faxes are scanned after the call is dialed and the receiving machine's capabilities are known.
4. Lower the fax transmission speed 9600 bps, as some older fax machines are not capable of receiving a fax at a high speed. To do so:
1. Press the Fax button, then press Options untill u see ADVANCED FAX.
2. Press Select.
3. Press Options untill u see until MAX SEND SPEED appears on the LCD display.
4. Change it to 9600 BPS using the - (left arrow) button.
5. Press Select.
5. Turn off ECM (Error Correction Mode) by pressing the following keys on the operator panel:
1. Press the Fax button, then press untill u see to get to ADVANCED FAX.
2. Press Select.
3. Press untill u see ERROR CORRECTION appears on the LCD display.
4. Change the setting from On to Off using the + (right arrow) button.
5. Press Select.
