This suggests that the clock circuit on the UART is scrod or that the
RS-232 drivers have been damaged (can happen due to a spike). You're only
choice is to hook up a scope and have a look at the pins to see what kind
of signal is coming off the unit.

Also check that the 3100 isn't wired for 220 and running off 110.
