Question about Panasonic Panafax UF-885 Plain Paper Laser Fax

1 Answer

Cannot send fax until I activate the Memory button, want to send "Direct"

We used to send faxes immediately (direct) where the phone number or one touch number would dial as soon as you entered it and then the paper feeds and processes once the conneciton is made. Now we cannot send out a fax unless we press the"Memory" button first which feeds the paper into memory and then it dials the number which we do not want.

    We have done this and that is what it is set at and has always been set at. But for some reason it is not working like that. We cannot even send a fax with it set at this setting, it just keeps triple beeping at us until we hit the button to turn the memory back on. We did not have a problem until we had a paper jam and an alarm went off. We fixed the jam and then the fax did not work the same way it had before?

Hi rlandriani,
There should be a setting under user paramaters in the menu section that will allow you to change the default "memory on" setting to "off".
The user parameters set on the menu currently can also be printed for you to go through at your leisure so that you can customise the machine to your own personal prefferences.

I CAN'T SEND FAX WITH EXTENSION NUMBER


Generally if you wanted to send a fax to a facsimile which is connected to an extension.you must dial only the direct line number and ask operator to transfer this call to fax (wanted extension).After you heard the fax tone you can push start button.
If the fax machine full-time connected to same extension & dedicated direct-line there only for faxing,we can program the pbx for automatically transfer the incoming fax or call to that extension.so outsider have to dial only direct fax number without ext no.
Only Panasonic PBXes having a unique feature if i'm wright if it detect fax tone from any direct line it will automatically transfers towards fax extension.

Answering machine not working


Open your TalkSwitch Management Software.
Go to Local Extensions/Fax
Select the extension you are using for the fax.
Click on additional settings under the activate extensions section
On the direct Line Access Tab put a check mark in the check box for "Use Direct Line Access on:" Select your Hunt Group or the number you have to dial to get an outside line.
This will force this extension to not have to dial 9 or whatever number to get an outside line for dialing out.

I need to know how to send a Broadcast fax to multiple numbers


This is right from the manual:
You can use the Multiple Send feature, which allows you to send a fax to
multiple locations. Originals are automatically stored in memory and sent
to a remote station. After transmission, the originals are automatically
erased from memory.
1 Press Fax.
2 Load originals face up into the ADF, or place a single original face
down on the scanner glass.
For details about loading an original, see page 5.1.
3 Adjust the document resolution and darkness to suit your fax needs.
See page 9.1.
4 Press Menu until Fax Feature appears on the bottom line of the
display and press OK.
5 Press the Scroll buttons until Multi Send appears and press OK.
6 Enter the number of the first receiving fax machine and press OK.
You can use speed buttons, speed dial numbers, or group dial
numbers. For details, see page 10.2.
7 Enter the second fax number and press OK.
The display asks you to enter another fax number to send the
document.
8 To enter more fax numbers, press OK when Yes appears and
repeat steps 6 and 7. You can add up to 209 destinations.
Note
You cannot use group dial numbers for another fax number.
9 When you have finished entering fax numbers, select No at the
Another No.? prompt and press OK or Start.
The original is scanned into memory before transmission. The
display shows memory capacity and the number of pages being
stored in memory.
10 If an original is placed on the scanner glass, select Yes to add
another pages. Load another original and press OK.
When you have finished, select No at the Another Page? prompt.
The machine begins sending the fax to the numbers you entered in
the order in which you entered them.

Panasonic Panafax UF - 885 unable to send faxes direct


Hi BrendaAsh,
Thank you for the above information.
Please ask rlandriani to access the user parameters on the fax machine and turn the Quick Memory XMT to "Off" or "Invalid".
This should set the machine for direct manual sending without memory intervention.
Regards
Gavin.

Does not scan pages until it makes connection


yes, the solution is that you are direct sending the faxes instead of scanning into memory which will start and complete the scan of all the pages as it begins dialing and transmitting. there should be a key on the control panel for memory or memory transmission, select it and your done.

i have read the manual end to end and I don't think you can.
Only thing I see is this.

Customizing your settings using the Lexmark Fax Solutions You can adjust the fax settings in the Lexmark Fax Solutions. These settings apply to the faxes you send or receive.
  1. Click Start onestep.gif Programs onestep.gif Lexmark 7100 Series onestep.gif Lexmark Fax Solutions.
  2. Click Adjust speed dial list and other fax settings. hfaxsetutil.jpg
  3. Click each tab and change the settings as desired.
  4. Press Save Settings after you finish your updates. Nothing is saved until you press this button.
  5. Click Close.
The following table contains the Setup and Settings tabs for the Lexmark Fax Solutions.
On this tab
You can
Personalize
  • Enter your company name and fax number.
  • Enter your name, company name, phone number and address as you want them to appear your cover page.
  • Select a cover page for your fax.
Send
  • Choose to use error correction.
  • Choose to use fax header.
  • Select a maximum send speed and a print quality for outgoing faxes.
  • Choose whether to scan the entire document before dialing the number.

  • Select when to print a fax activity report
Select when to print an activity report is the only close item I can find. Nothing whatsoever about a confirmation report.

Before you begin


To pinpoint the cause of the issue, please record answers to the following questions:

Can a fax be sent or received?
Can a fax be sent, but not received?
Has the fax function ever worked in the past?

Any error messages may also help to narrow down the cause of the issues.

Print out the following:

- a settings list to view the current fax settings
- a receive log if there are issues receiving faxes
- a send log if there are issues sending faxes
- an activity log if faxes cannot be sent or received.
Initial checks
If the fax option has worked in the past and does not do so now, check that the same connection is being used and that it still works.
Check to see if any configuration settings have been changed that could have affected the fax settings.

Faxes cannot be sent/received:
If you are using a digital line, you need an analog card, an ISDN adapter, or an ADSL filter in order to send faxes.
If a PBX is being used, an ISDN Adapter/ADSL filter will not be used as these are supplied within the system. (A PBX is normally used within a company to share a small number of public lines among a large number of private ones to save on cost.) For instructions on configuring the X6100 Series machine with a PBX, see How and When to Use the PBX Option.
Check the phone line (without the printer):
Test the line by connecting a phone directly into the phone port.
Check for a dialing tone.
If you cannot hear a dialing tone, try another phone cable. Once you can hear a dialing tone, you know that the phone port is live and working.
Make sure the RJ11 cable is not damaged.
Check that the printer is accessing the dialing tone correctly:
Press the Options button on the operator panel five times until ON HOOK DIAL is displayed.
Press Select. You should hear a dialing tone.
If you can't hear a dial tone, make sure that the speaker volume is set to High. (Go to Fax, press Options eight times until SPEAKER VOLUME is displayed, then use the plus or minus buttons to change the setting to HIGH. Press Select.)
If there is still no dial tone, unplug the power cable and the phone lead, then plug them back in and try again.

Faxes can be sent but not received:
Connect the Lexmark All-in-One directly to the phone port. IMPORTANT: Do NOT connect any phones to the EXT port.
Make sure the Fax receive mode is set to answer the fax after 3 rings. (Press the Fax button on the operator panel and then press Options three times until ANSWER FAX WHEN is displayed. Change the settings using the - or + buttons as appropriate.)

Faxes can be received but not sent:
Make sure that Country Code is set correctly:
Press the Fax button on the operator panel and then press Options 15 times until Advanced is displayed.
Press Select.
Press Options 13 times and then press the + or - button until the right country is displayed.
Press Select.

IMPORTANT! These tests must be carried out with NO EXTENSIONS, i.e. phones or answering machines, connected to the EXT port on the All-In-One.

Hi, Remote Fax Error being displayed


As some fax machines are not capable of receiving color faxes, legal size faxes, or faxes at 200x200 dpi resolution, make sure you are sending an A4 or letter size (not legal size) page at standard resolution:
Press the Black button for a black-and-white fax. Press the Quality button to check the selected resolution.
Make sure the All-In-One has enough memory free when you want to save the scanned documents into memory before sending the fax. Please refer to the following document: Click here to link to the relevant document.
Note: The scanned documents will only be saved in the memory before the whole fax is sent if the Scan Before Dial option is turned on. (This is the factory default.) Up to 50 black-and-white fax pages can be stored in memory at standard resolution when there are no pending faxes in the queue.
Turn off the Scan Before Dial option by pressing the following keys on the operator panel:
Press the Fax button, then press Options 15 times to get to ADVANCED FAX mode.
Press Select.
Press Options nine times until SCAN BEFORE DIAL appears on the LCD display.
Change the setting from Yes to No using the + (right arrow) button.
Press Select.
Note: The Scan Before Dial option controls whether a document is scanned before a call is dialed. This parameter only applies to a mono fax that uses either 200x100 or 200x200 resolution. Higher resolution mono faxes and all color faxes are scanned after the call is dialed and the receiving machine's capabilities are known.
Lower the fax transmission speed to 14400 or even 9600 bps, as some older fax machines are not capable of receiving a fax at a high speed. To do so:
Press the Fax button, then press Options 15 times to get to ADVANCED FAX.
Press Select.
Press Options 10 times until MAX SEND SPEED appears on the LCD display.
Change it to 9600 BPS using the - (left arrow) button.
Press Select.
Turn off ECM (Error Correction Mode) by pressing the following keys on the operator panel:
Press the Fax button, then press Options 15 times to get to ADVANCED FAX.
Press Select.
Press Options 11 times until ERROR CORRECTION appears on the LCD display.
Change the setting from On to Off using the + (right arrow) button.
Press Select.
Note: Turning off this option makes it possible to receive a fax when the receiver fax machine does not support certain error correction modes. The X6100 Series only supports 1-D MH encoding with the error correction. Fax transmissions without ECM and other ECM types can result in bad quality on the received page.
