Problem
Cause & Solution
Recording paper is wrinkled
or folded when printed.

R Try turning the recording paper over or rotating it 180 degrees.
The printing quality is poor
(e.g. has smudges, blurred
points or lines).

turning the recording paper over.
R You may have used paper with a cotton and/or fiber content that is over
20 %, such as letterhead or resume paper.
R The recording paper is too damp. Use new paper.
R When you print several pages, the stacked paper may have smudges on the
back side after printing. To avoid this, expand the paper exit (page 15).
AB C
I changed the recording
paper, but the printing quality
is still poor.
R The glass is dirty with correction fluid, etc. Clean it (page 71). Please do
not insert a document before correction fluid has dried completely.

R Try copying the document. If the copied image is clear, there may be
something wrong with the other party’s machine.
If the copied image is not clear, too dark, or black and white lines or smudges
appear, refer to “11.3.2 Printing problems”, page 63.
R The original document is too dark or too light. Change the contrast

I cannot receive documents.
R You may have subscribed to a voice mail service due to service packs
offered by your telephone company. Fax reception may not be possible
when voice mail is activated so we recommend you to:
– contact your telephone company and request to deactivate voice mail
service, or
– subscribe to a Distinctive Ring service (page 44).
R The telephone line cord is connected to the [EXT] jack on the unit. Connect

I cannot receive voice
messages.
R Check if the answering machine is turned ON and connected to the unit
properly (page 39).
R Set the number of rings on the answering machine to 1 or 2.
I pressed the remote access
code to access the answering
machine remotely, but the line
was disconnected.
R The code may include “#” which is used for certain features provided by
telephone companies. Change the code on the answering machine to
another number which does not include “#”.

14. General Information
Toner cartridge life
The toner cartridge needs to be replaced regularly.
Toner cartridge life depends on the amount of content in
a printed document. Toner cartridge life varies in actual
usage. The following is the approximate number of
pages that the toner cartridge can print according to the
various printing examples.
Example 1
Approx. 2,500 pages can be printed.

type of paper and how much toner you use for the
number of pages per print job. The actual number of
pages your toner cartridge will print may be
significantly less than this estimate if your unit is often
used for printing small number of pages per job.
Because many of the factors that determine the
actual toner cartridge life cannot be controlled, we
cannot guarantee a minimum number of pages that
will be printed by your toner cartridge.
R The number of pages changes with the depth,
thickness and size of the characters.
R If you turn on the toner save feature, the toner
cartridge will last approx. 20 % longer.
