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.

  • press down until #5 "memory" is displayed
Display should be at 2 = ON

The memory light should go off when the menu is closed.

To reset the memory state, repeat the steps, but instead, press 2 for 2 = ON and close the menu.

NEED THE MACHINE TO ANSWER WHEN THE PHONE SENDS THE SIGNAL.


After making my post, I went to the official Brothers website for the 4100 FAQs and "Operating Instructions." Here's what I found. Set your 4100 set to the "Fax/Tel" mode. Press "Menu", then the number 2 (Fax), then number 1(Set-up Receive), then number 1 again (Ring Delay). Use right arrow key to increase. Once increased, press the "Set" key. You'll see the message "Accepted." Now press the "Stop" key to exit "Menu." This will now give you up to 4 rings before the fax auto answers. Inorder to send a signal by phone to remote start the fax just follow the instructions I copied directly from Brothers instructions for the 4100: If you answer the call on an extension phone (this is any phone plug into a phone jack on the same line) and hear a beep every 3 seconds (automatic fax) or just silence (manual fax), press *51(remote activation code) on the telephone keypad, wait to hear the Brother machine turn on (chirping sounds) and then hang up. I don't have anyone that can send me a fax right now to test it out. I'll have to try it in the morning. Hope this works for you.

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.

Hp photosmart 2610 all in one series. I can receive faxes but can't send them


First, in the FAX mode, scroll to PRINT REPORTS on your HP's display. You can then print out all fax activity, including failed SENDS. There should be an error code associated with the failure, and this may help to point you in the right direction. Using the HOOK button on your fax, call your cell phone. If your cell rings, answer it, and listen for the FAX TONES. If your cell does not ring, press the MENU button on your HP, and scroll to either FAX SETTINGS, FAX SETUP, INITIAL SETUP, or FAX SEND MODE. Try changing , one-by-one, any settings related to sending faxes. Be sure to write down the original setting before you change it.

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.
