Can you verify the error message to be 70? Error Codes for the 4100 starts at 71 as shown in the link below.

It could be error 7D. You may try to remove the toner cartridge from the printer and slide the corona wire cleaner and put it back on. Do this with your fingers crossed. :-)
Error messages like these are not user serviceable. Another bet is to unplug the unit, wait a couple of minutes and plug it back again. If the error persists, professional service is required.

Hello i have a yaesu ft-2900 it receives just fine but when i transmit it shows error. this radio is brandnew

Hi Gerald,

When you say you used the software to download frequencies, do you mean as in from the internet, or did you have to input frequencies via the software on your PC?

There is a difference, that's the reason I ask.

If, by using the software you manually input the frequencies, then did you input both the output and input frequencies or just output for each channel?

If the latter is true, and you are trying to access another user via a repeater, then that is the error.

Repeaters generally, require both the input frequency = the frequency you transmit on, and the output = the frequency you receive on.

Without both frequency pair, you won't be getting out, and no won can hear you, as you are basically transmitting as a simplex station on a repeater allocatted channel, hence the error message on your display.

The radio you have is used by many amateurs & CB operators, and both group utilise repeaters within their allocated spectrum, excluding 27 meg CB, which is simplex only, but with SSB included.

I hope this answers your query.

Best regards,

  • As per the above there are error on Transmitting the packet and also for receiving the acknowledge packet.
  • Please check whether any disturbance in the link
  • Each PPP packet has a checksum attached to ensure that the data being received is the data being sent. If the FCS of an incoming packet is incorrect, the packet is dropped and the HDLC FCS count is increased.
  • Another reason for seeing too many FCS errors may be that the remote end has stopped talking PPP.

Comm error 252


The comm error 252 occurs due to,

  • Telephone line conditions were too poor to receive a fax.
This error can be rectified by

  1. Reattempt the fax reception at a later time when line conditions may have improved.
  2. Configure the machine to start reception at a lower speed.
  3. If the local machine successfully received several pages of a larger document, ask the remote user to transmit the document in several smaller parts.

Get communication problems when sending some faxes - when sending faxes to some places it won't transmit but will transmit to other places

The problem can be either a error with your phone service or an incompatablity with your machine and the receivers.

Sometimes the problem is as simple as the receiver's machine being set to receive on more rings than your's before it goes into redial.

Printer error

error message 345

The remote machine has failed to respond to a fax command from the local machine due to the connection being interrupted. These errors can occur if the phone lines in the area to be faxed are old or there is noise (static on the phone line). Other reasons can include power outages and other power related problems.


The call waiting service can cause this error. The click, heard for an incoming call, is actually a momentary disconnect of the line.


The remote user has pressed the Stop key while the reception was in progress.


Under rare conditions incompatibility between the two machines may cause the remote machine to simply abandon the call.

*Re-attempt the fax reception at a different time when telephone line conditions have improved. Call the telephone provider if line conditions fail to improve.

*Disable ECM. Errors may still occur, and may result in a degraded image quality on the received page. However, the ability to transmit the entire document will be improved.

*Try sending at a lower transmission speed.
