Question about Panasonic KX-FL501 Plain Paper Laser Fax

Print smudges and ghosts down the page

(1) My KX-FL501 print smudges as if not properly fused to paper. (2) Some of the print is lighter as if less toner is deposited in some spots. (3) some images, usually heavier ones repeat as ghosts sown page.

TIA for the help.

    Thanks Tino



    I sorta figured that would be the case, from my little understanding of laser printers. I really don't know if they all fuse with a heated roller, but I'm guessing so. I see what looks like a long lamp hanging out inside a black roller at the end of the paper path. Any suggesstions where to pic one up inexpensively?

    Ghosting: There IS loose toner that stays on the green ...(is it a) transfer roller. Is there a fix for that?

Usually ghosting is caused by the fusing unit, which usually means that it needs replaced to be honest. You could try getting into the fuser and giving the rollers a wipe, they may have dry toner on them which could also cause the fault. but i'd say the fuser could need changed!!!
Hope that helps  (",)

My panasonic kx-fl501 fax message says please wait and the keys don't work


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.

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.

Fax machine does not print on the right side of paper


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.

Cleaning a laser printer can solve minor problems, maintain print quality, and prolong periods between professional cleanings. Clean your printer when print quality deteriorates or when you change toner cartridges. Manually Cleaning Inside the Printer Steps: 1. Unplug the printer from the surge suppressor. 2. Remove the internal paper trays. 3. Remove the toner cartridge and place it on a piece of scrap paper. 4. Clean inside the toner cavity with a dry, lint-free cloth and brush (if a brush is supplied with the printer). 5. Clean the printer mirror gently with the brush. Don't touch the mirror if a brush isn't provided. 6. Wipe away dust and spilled toner. Remove paper fragments. 7. Clean the rollers, but don't touch the sponge roller. 8. Replace the toner cartridge. Tips: To remove unfused toner from the rollers following a paper jam, print 5 to 10 blank pages on scrap paper. Wipe toner from clothing if necessary, then immediately wash toner-soiled clothes in cold water. Go to your printer manufacturer's Web site (see Related Sites) for detailed cleaning instructions. Warnings: Don't use any liquid cleaners inside the printer. Initiating Automatic Cleaning Through Printer Software Steps: 1. Open the printer software by double-clicking on a printer icon or specific printer utility program, or opening a document and then selecting Print from the File menu. 2. In the printer software, look for a button labeled Options, Troubleshooting, Toolbox, Printer Utilities or something similar. (This varies by manufacturer.) 3. Follow the instructions on the screen. 4. Repeat the cleaning process if the results aren't satisfactory.
