Question about Xerox FaxCentre F116 Plain Paper Laser

2 Answers

FaxCentre F116 display is blank. Sends and receives fine.

Starting yesterday our display screen is either BLANK or garbled black shapes and arrows.

Help!

I called X but we're not under warranty - i'm sure it's a simple solution that shouldn't require a $332 service call.

Thanks!

This is not easy to fix on your own.

This would require a technical person to take off the top cover and re plug the ribbon cable to the screen.
The machine has to be unplugged.
It is not connecting very good. This is why it is giving you garbled information on the screen.
If this is done there is a lot of plastic connections connecting the top cover.

"NEED TO BE VERY CAREFUL IF DISASSEMBLING THIS AREA."

The result maybe more broken parts than you dreamed of.
Breaking the contacts on the ribbon cable will result in replacing the cable and the screen. It is very tricky to remove this top cover without damaging the ribbon cable and plastic cover holder snap ons'.
A service call maybe worth the headaches. But the parts will also cost.
Xerox will warrentty their work for 30 days.

Yoiu can pop the display off and remove all the connectors to it. I have frequently seen poor connections on that product cause that problem.
You can look on Xerox.com for a local dealer service location. They would be much much cheaper.

Trying to clear the memory of a Xerox Faxcentre F116. Do you know the steps to accomplish this?


One needs to know what they are doing when resetting memory to the machine.
When resetting the machine, one needs to consider, the loss of memory data on the copy cartridge counter in the machine.
When resetting memory a copy toner cartridge needs to be in stock with a counter reset card.
Erasing memory will wipe out the old copy/toner cartridge odometer setting, resuling in "Replace toner/cartridge" error.
Please clarify which memory area is being erased.

Faxcentre f116 outgoing faxes are black i have replaced the scanner assy and the uc board 2 times and calibrated them each after the part was replaced


On this machine for black copies, the areas to check are the HVPS, The ROS, or the Print engin Board.
Most likely on this machine the HVPS can be the problem, then the ROS, then the printe engine board.
The definitions are the scanner platen is under the document feeder, the ROS is the actual laser scanner.
Taking this machine apart several times, one can also check the ground straps to the copy cartridge to make sure they are connecting to copy cartridge when it is inserted into the machine.

I have a blank, black screen, irrespective of the input (cable, dvd, wii). The menus, however, come up fine and the audio is working fine.


Hi,

Your screen is showing a black picture because the closed caption function has been activated. When the closed caption mode is on the screen will display an 80% black picture.

To turn off the closed caption and regain a full screen please follow these steps;

1) Press the Menu button

2) Use the up and down arrows to navigate to Closed Caption

3) Use the right or left arrows to select it.

4) Use the right or left arrows to select OFF

5) Use the up or down arrows to select Finish

6) Use the right or left arrows to save the settings and exit.

You should have your full screen back now minus the annoying black box.

If this solution has helped please do take a moment to rate it.

Thanks for using FixYa

Fax Machine not picking up incoming faxes...


If this is on a network your network tech needs to set up your machine through one of the routers.
If the machine was pluged into the phone socet direct, there would be no problem. The phone will ring constantly, until you plug the phone to the machine.
If the machine does not answer the phone, then the problem maybe in the machines confguration for auto answer, or a modem board not working.

But on a network, the computer is trying to find the signal, but can't because it cannot find the machines signal.
This problem is in the network side. Check with your network specialist.

Blank screen


Did you accidentally hit the lower left "Display" button on the back of your camera? It manually turns the screen on or off to save batteries. Turn the camera on and press it once to check.

TX problem


If I understand you right, what you send, people are receiving blank sheets?
When you try to run a copy are those blank also?
If so your problem is with the scanner. The drum should have nothing to do with sent faxes.
Unless your putting the paper in the scanner upside down. And if you ran it enough to need a drum I can't imagine that .
