Question about Canon CFX-L4000 Plain Paper Laser Fax

1 Answer

Received in Memory

I have issues!! My alarm light is blinking, the screen is saying paper jam, but there is no paper in the machine, only in the tray. My incoming faxes are "Received in Memory", and I can't clear the alarm button, and I need to know how to retrieve the stored faxes from the memory. I inherited this fax from one of our closed stores, so I have no manual.

Re: Received in Memory

Check the paper sensor at the bottom of where the paper comes out! this has a tendency to pop out of its little holder. Use a flashlight to see it! the sensor is blocking the beam.

Need to erase a huge fax that is in the memory

The memory is full of received documents due to a lack of paper, or a paper jam.
Install paper or clear the jammed paper.

A paper jammed and I pulled it out. Now the red light is blinking and it says clear paper jam but there is no jam. How do I get it to work again.

Remove all the paper from the recording paper tray and then turn off (count to 10 ) and on the machine. Then reload ALL the recording paper together. Also, before doing this open the printer cover and remove the cartridge to make sure there is no pieces of paper stuck inside the machine - then carry out the above procedure.

Good luck

Paper jam

Open the paper tray and remove the first couple of sheets of paper - If the paper tray is fully loaded leave it half full.

Fax memory says full. how do you get them(Panasonic KX-FG2451)I haven't been able to receive faxes, don't know if this would effect it.

The memory is full of received documents due to a
lack of recording paper, a lack of ink film or a
recording paper jam. Install paper (page 13), install
ink film (page 11) or remove the jammed paper
(page 63).

The alarm light is blinking. We have unplugged it and it's still on.

alarm flasing can be more than one thing. check to see if alarm is representing a symbol on fax machine. It can be jammed paper inside, or toner/ ink run out.

No there is no configuration page. The red blinking light means you have no paper under your blue tray or the paper empty sensor is broke. To identify the noise open the lid then close it, if you hear the noise while the fax is warming up then most likely you have a bad gear that meshes with the fuser drive gear, although it could also be the toner or drum. If it's not the toner or drum I stongly recommend a service technician , he should be able to provide an exit tray.
