Question about Fax Machines

Memo-scriber TRC9010 keeps beeping even when there is a tape in the machine and it's not at the end of the tape. I did clean it with alcohol instead of isopropyl alcohol. Could that have affected it?

    I was trying to play a taper and tried different tapes with no difference. I haven't used the machine in a while, but it's making a humming sound I don't remember it doing before. It makes the sound when the machine is on and the cassette compartment is closed, whether there is a tape in it or not. Thanks!

    I still have the problem of the beep, so I can't play a tape. It seems that somehow the machine does not recognize that there is a tape in the machine. I can reverse and fast forward the tape, but not play it.

    Ginko,
    If the head is damaged, would I be able to replace it myself.

Yes tape head can be replaced,a humming sound is also caused by loose connection of parts in power supply section and beeping sound is also caused crack or cold solder solder joint of parts in circuit board...Cold solder issues - each component is soldered into small holes on the printed circuit board which in turn connects said component to the other components. Due to time, heat, use, some solder joints would be cracked or loose. It is possible that the cold solder is still minimally connected (hanging by a thread). When the unit turns on heat would be generated which would be sufficient to further loosen up the solder joint to the point it no longer provides electrical contact. Jarring the unit creates movement inside enough to re establish the contact, sometime good enough sometimes not enough.

Again, since the unit still operates (sometimes) then it is highly probable that there are no defective components. As you have surmised, it is possibly a loose connection, solder joints are "connections" except that molten soldering lead is used to attach/connect the component to the board, "loose connection" in this sense is equal to "cold solder".

hope this may help;

Good luck:

Regards,
VOTIT

Check Take up reel. May be bad. Check or replace reel sensor. check clutch. If this unit is CCD-TR, you must replace reels table (take up and supply) is very common to crack bab. And clean contacts on flex board connection on bottom of transport, intermittent contact may cause error on sensors job

If you cleaned the head with alcohol right on top of it you may have damaged the head, that can be the reason why it does not recognise tapes.
If you did the cleaning recently wait some time for drying eventual liquid residue.

    Usually there is some soldering to do , but it is not a too difficult job if you have worked on pcb before.
    You can ask parts to Sanyo, check at the end of the owner manual there is also a number to call , or find contact on the website.
    Call them and also ask them a quote to check and repair it, from description the machine can have additional problem, better to have it checkd from a technician.

Try cleaning the rollers with a bit of rubbing alcohol/water solution, equal parts. There should be a pair of them, one on each side of where the paper is fed.

Paper jam


Sir/Mam
The problem mite be dirty rollers that feed the paper, try cleaning with alcohol or worn out replace. Problem is the paper roller is miss feeding not taking up the paper instead of hitting something in the machine paper jam.

Paper getting stuck in machine.


When the jam occurs, is the lead edge of the paper damaged?
Does it look like it collided with something?
If so, open up the machine to expose the paper path, (You may have to remove the drum unit) and manually feed the paper into the machine to see if you can detect what it is running into.
As it should line up with the damage.

Check the placement and alignment of the paper tray, if one end is higher than the other ot could skew and jam.

Check for bottom of drum unit for springs or flaps hanging down.
Check sensors, clean and operational? (Moving Type)
Blow out machine, clean rollers with alcohol.


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.
