Question about Panasonic KX-FL501 Plain Paper Laser Fax

1 Answer

Fax machine does not print on the right side of paper

Whenever we receive a fax, the document only prints on the left side - the right side of the page is blank. I installed a new toner cartridge and the problem remains. Any ideas?

Probably the thermal head is bad. It's a spring loaded bar inside of the fax machine. You might be able to shim it closer to the paper on the bad side.

How do I clear the in use alarm on a canon mx340 printer?


The in use alarm appears to be related to fax reception and printing. There are some options below that you could try:-
Memory Reception If the machine receives a fax under one of the following conditions, it will not be able to print the received fax and will store it in its memory. The In Use/Memory lamp is lit and Received in memory is displayed on the LCD. When the problem is resolved as described, the fax stored in memory is printed automatically.
  • Ink has run out: Replace the FINE Cartridge.
    i_green_arrow.gifRoutine Maintenance
    i_note_e.gifNote
    • You can set the machine to forcibly print a received fax even if the ink has run out.
      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 memory.
      If the ink has already run out, we recommend that OFF be selected for Auto print in FAX user settings to store the received fax in memory and print the fax manually after replacing the FINE Cartridge. After you replace the FINE Cartridge and select ON for Auto print, the fax stored in memory will be printed automatically.
  • Paper has run out: Load the paper and press the OK button.
  • A different size of paper from that specified by Page size is loaded:
    Load the same size of paper as that specified by Page size, then press the OK button.
  • Page size is set to other than A4, 8.5"x11"(LTR), or Legal (or 8.5"x14"):
    Set Page size to A4, 8.5"x11"(LTR), or Legal (or 8.5"x14").
  • Media type is set to other than Plain paper:
    Set Media type to Plain paper.
  • You pressed the Stop button to cancel printing of a fax:
    Press the FAX button
Alternatively turn the printer off, open the devices and printers section of Control Panel, right click on your printer and select "see what's printing" and left click on this. A window will pop up which may or may not contain a list of documents. If it does these must be cancelled (Menu - Printer - Cancel all documents). Once all documents have gone from the list turn the printer on and try to print.
Other than the above suggestions I would need to know more about your OS and exact problem. Hope this helps.

On my Canon MX310, the display says "Waiting for Report". Fax Memory is clear, but the In Use/Memory light stays on.


Try this step ... found it on Canon's website

Issue: ERROR LCD: WAITING FOR REPORT
Solution: Set [AUTO PRINT RX] to ON (MX300 / MX310)

AUTO PRINT RX When [AUTO PRINT RX] is set to [OFF], incoming received faxes will be temporarily stored to memory and transaction reports (TX, RX and Activity) remain in memory. The default setting is [ON], which means incoming received faxes and transaction reports will automatically print. The fax machine will not automatically print a received fax and will store it in memory in the following conditions.
  • Ink is low or has run out
  • The paper size and type is not set correctly
  • Paper has run out
  • The Output Tray is closed
To set AUTO PRINT to ON, please follow these steps.
  1. Press the <FAX> button to enter the Fax menu.

  2. Press the <Menu> button. [FAX SETTINGS] is displayed

  3. Press the left or right arrow button to select [RX SETTINGS] , then press <OK> two times.

  4. Press the left arrow to select [ON], then press <OK>.

    Note: When AUTO PRINT RX is set ON, a sub-menu will appear to PRINT WHEN NO INK.

  5. At sub-menu PRINT WHEN NO INK, decide if you'd like the machine to continue to print incoming received faxes if ink is low.

    CAUTION: When this option is set ON, the fax machine will not monitor the ink level of the ink cartridges. If ink is low or out, received faxes will print with streaks or blank. Furthermore, once the fax is printed, it will be deleted from memory.
    1. To print received faxes when ink is low or out, press the left or right arrow to select [ON] and then press <OK>.
    2. To store received faxes in memory when ink is low or out, press the left or right arrow to select [OFF] and then press <OK>.

  6. Press the <Stop/Reset> repeatedly to return to Fax standby mode.

Faxing up or down


Look at the hopper. It will almost certainly have a little graphic on it to tell you which way up the document goes.

If it looks like a sheet of paper with lines of writing on, the paper goes in print side up.

If it looks like a sheet of paper with one corner folded over, and lines of writing visible only on the turned over corner, then it goes in print side down.

If you can't find the graphic, then experiment: Take a blank sheet of paper. Write "Up" on one side and "Down" on the other then stick it into the machine so the writing is telling the truth. Most fax machines have a copy mode - use this to see which side of the paper the machine reads (if you can't get it to copy, fax your page to somebody and get them to phone back to tell you which side of the page they've received).

Print from memory


if you still have the paper manual it's on page 54 and 55
basically you have to press fax button, then press the menu button, then use the right or left arrows (on the side of the ok button) to select "memory reference" then press "ok", then press the arrows again to print which document in memory you want to print (usually the most recent is listed) then press "ok" again.

finally press the arrows to select "yes" to print only the first page or "no" to print the entire document and press the ok button one last time. it should print.

if you are still receiving a "change paper size" type error, go ahead and press the fax button, then the settings button, use the arrows to select your paper size, press ok, then select media type, in this case "plain paper" and press "ok"

that should do it.
