Hello!
If you are using a Windows XP operating system, I do suggest that you use the Scan Option on the Control Panel.

How?
Click on Start
Click on set Setting, then Select Control Panel
Double click the Scanners and Cameras icon
Double click your printer's icon
Then follow the instruction that will be displayed in your monitor.
At the end, this will save your scanned documents in jpeg files.

Hope this help!

Problem has a red light and it says paper out but it has paper in the button.


From memory I think there is an option to calibrate the Paper Out Sensor, in the Tech Access Menu,
Press the LINE FEED and ENTER buttons for five seconds until the printer flashes up TECH ACCESS on
Then access the menus as described below.
  1. Press the MENU button
  2. Press the DOWN ARROW button until the display reads TEST MENU
  3. Press the DOWN ARROW button until the display reads DIAG
  4. Press ENTER
  5. Press the DOWN ARROW until the display reads CAL-PAPER
  6. Press ENTER
  7. Press the DOWN ARROW until the display reads CALL PAPER PAPER OUT
  8. Press the ENTER button
  9. Follow the Onscreen Instructions
If the above is not in your printer menu look for a PAPER OUT THRESHOLD option (PAPTHR)? Increase this value.

The TECH ACCESS menu should have a METER function which will show voltage change readings for the PAPER OUT Sensor, enter the Meter Mode and select the PAPER OUT option and insert and remove paper to ensure there is at least a 3 volt voltage swing from paper in to paper out.
If you get voltage swing but not 3 Volt adjust the paper out sensor position to see if you can improve this reading.
If there is no voltage swing its likely the paper sensor is faulty.

  2. Make sure the appropriate product is selected, and then click Preferences or Properties . The Preferences/Properties window opens.
  3. Click the Printing Shortcuts tab. Consider modifying some or all of the options in the Printing Shortcuts menu to increase print quality.
    • Print quality : If the quality of the printouts is not acceptable, try increasing the print quality. To print more quickly, try decreasing the print quality.

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.
