I realize this thread is old, but I just encountered the same problem with my Panasonic KX-FL501. Pressing #9000* does not work, as none of the key pads are responding. When I lift the receiver I get a tone. But the keys don't respond when I dial. Display shows "please wait"..... I've been waiting for hours.

SOURCE: fax problem

How is the copy when you try to just make a copy of something? If it copies good, then it might be the senders machine.
If when you make a copy, and the copy is blurred, then it is probably your ribbon/ink cartridge.

If it is the cartridge, just replace the cartridge, and you should be good to go.
Hope this solves your problem.
Good luck.

SOURCE: Panasonic KX-FM220 fax machine does have a dial tone

I would double check your phone cord. There is usually 2 jacks in the back of the fax machine. 1 is for Line, and 1 is for phone.
Your phone cord should be hooked up in the LINE jack that goes to the wall.
I would also double check your phone cord on another phone to make sure the cord is good.
If you look at the clear connector that you plug into your wall and fax machine, does it have 4 copper/gold color wires contacts imbedded in the clear plastic connector?

Another thing to try, if you fax machine has a Line and a Phone connector, try plugging in a phone in the PHONE connector. Then hook up another phone cord going from the LINE to the WALL jack.
If you get a dial tone on your Phone, then you know you have it connected correctly. If no dial tone, then I would go back to the phone cord.
check those things and get back to me and I will see if I can help you with more suggestions.
Good luck.
Mac =)

How do I change the date stamp that prints when I send a fax


Ring the person you sent the fax to and ask them to white-out the date printed and fill in the required date.

Alternatively, you could read the Operating Instructions (http://pdf.textfiles.com/manuals/FAXMACHINES/Panasonic%20KX-FL501%20Plain-Paper%20Laser%20Multifunction.pdf) and check page 17.

90 percent of the time that is a phone line issue.
But, first thing to look at is see if someone has removed the phone line and placed the line into the extension of phone jack and not the one marked "line"
You may simply need to replace the phone line between the machine and jack.
Yes you may hear a dial tone, etc etc, but you are losing one of 3 things. Either some of the phone line voltage, phone line current or what is called decibel loss.
When you send, you make the phone connection like lifting the phone off the receiver, but the signal to receive must be strong enough for it to key the fax board modem to receive.
If you have another device plugged in on the same phone line. Try removig that item, ex, an answering maching, Credit card machine etc and see if it is interfering with receiving also.
There is a high percentage the phone line is the issue.
Some things to check on the machine itself. Make sure Junk Fax setting is OFF, Make sure ECM ( error correction mode) is ON. Make sure Secure Receive is OFF and manual receive is OFF. Those will be in your machine setups.
The Junk fax setting will stop almost all incomming faxes.
It is less likely a software corruption issue. But that is remotely possible.
Let me know please, Some other obsecure things that can cause this. But I think you will find one of the posted things will resolve your issue.
