Description

This article provides information on messages for faxing that can be displayed on the LCD of your printer.

 

Solution

 

If a message is displayed on the Fax standby screen, take the corresponding action described below.

 

Auto redial

 

The machine is waiting to redial the recipient's number because the line was busy or the recipient did not answer when you tried to send a document. Wait for the machine to automatically redial the number. If you want to cancel automatic redialing, wait until the machine starts dialing the number, then press the Stop  button. You can also delete the document from machine's memory to cancel automatic redialing.

 

 

Hang up phone

 

The handset is not placed in the handset cradle correctly.
Replace the handset correctly.

 

 

Try again in B&W

 

The recipient's fax machine is not color-compatible.
Press the Black button to resend the fax.
Alternatively, you select If incompat., B&W for Color transmission in Adv. FAX settings under Fax settings. The machine converts color documents into black & white data if the recipient's fax machine does not support color faxing.

 

 

No tone detected

 

The telephone line cable with a modular plug may not be plugged in properly.
Make sure that the cable is plugged in properly, and resend the fax after a while. If you still cannot send the fax, select OFF for Dial tone detect in Adv. FAX settings under Fax settings.

 

 

Received in memory

 

If the machine receives a fax under one of the following conditions, the machine will not be able to print the received fax and will store it in the machine's memory. When the problem is resolved as described, the fax stored in the machine's memory is printed automatically.
  • The amount of remaining ink is insufficient to print a fax:
REFERENCE
  • You can set the machine to forcibly print a received fax even if the ink has run out.
Set Print when no ink in Auto print settings under Fax settings to Print.
However, part or all of the fax may not be printed since the ink has run out.
Also, the contents of the fax will not be stored in the machine's memory.
If the ink has already run out, we recommend that Do not print be selected for Received documents in Auto print settings under Fax settings to store the received fax in the machine's memory. After you replace the FINE cartridge and select Print for Received documents in Auto print settings, the fax stored in the machine's memory will be printed automatically.

Busy/no signal

 

  • The recipient's number you dialed is busy. Try dialing again after waiting for a moment.
     
  • The fax/telephone number dialed is incorrect. Check the fax/telephone number and dial again.
     
  • The recipient's fax machine did not respond (after all automatic redialing attempts). Contact the recipient and have the recipient check the fax machine. For an overseas call, add pauses to the registered number.
     
  • The recipient is not using a G3 machine. The machine cannot send or receive documents to/from a fax machine that is incompatible with the G3 standard. Contact the recipient and ask the recipient to check whether the fax machine is G3 compatible.
     
  • The touch tone/rotary pulse setting on the machine is incorrect. Set the machine to match the telephone line you are using.

 

Connecting the Telephone Line

Memory is full

 

The machine's memory is full because it has sent/received too many documents, or a detailed document.
Print the faxes stored in the machine's memory and delete them from the machine's memory.
When sending a fax, resend it. If this message still appears, delete the faxes stored in the machine's memory, divide the faxes for sending, and send them again.
When receiving a fax, have the sender resend the faxes.

 

Document Stored in Machine's Memory

Change the paper. A4/LTR/LGL Plain paper

 

The paper settings are incorrect. Set Page size to A4, Letter, LTR, or Legal and Media type to Plain paper to print received faxes.

Fax info does not match

 

Transmission has been canceled because the machine could not detect the recipient's fax machine information or the information did not match the dialed number. This message is displayed when Check RX FAX info in Security control under Fax settings is set to ON.

Reception has been rejected because the fax matches the fax rejection condition specified by FAX RX reject in Security control under Fax settings.
