Question about Panasonic Panafax UF-885 Plain Paper Laser Fax

1 Answer

The machine is in a loop

Machine asks us to "enter station(s)", then it says UF885, then it acts like it will dial, but only one number and then goes back to the "enterstation(s)"
Turning off and or pulling plug has not helped. I am guessing I need to shut down the entire program/ memory and start from scratch, but I cannot get it to do so.

Stitches form loops below te work. i tried to tighten the thread tension & a used the pressure regulator but to no avail. kindly help

If you are getting loops on the underside of your seam, it is usually the top tension that is at fault. Check that the thread is under tension by pulling the top thread just before it goes into your needle with the pressure foot down (most machines don't apply tension until the pressure foot is lowered).

Check the tension dial - is it set to the middle number? usually 5 if the dial goes from 1-10?.

You can also clean between the tension discs - turn the dial to zero and slide the salvage edge of an offcut of light fabric between the tension discs to remove any build up.

Thread will shed particles of dye and filaments as it goes through the tension discs so you need to clean this area regularly.

Now rethread everything, check the tension dial is back to 5 and try again.

There is also good general sewing machine maintenance guides at which I find very useful.

Error 407 on Panafax UF885

Is your phone line DSL?

Press the MONITOR key and listen for a dial tone.

Plug a regular phone into the wall jack and listen for a dial tone.

Make sure you plugged into the LINE port of the fax machine.

When setting my brther fax machine it ask me for station ID and fax number

Station ID would be your name, business name, etc. And then enter your fax number, This info will be printed on all faxes you send. I don't believe you HAVE to enter either of these. MM85

We use this equipment in remote locations and have found that the type of phone needs to be a centrex line, such as is used on a fax machine. Note: in the past, we used to have to use an "analog" phone line, which is just a normal phone line.

You probably have two different phone lines involved here.

Brother all in one MFC

According to the user manual, which can be obtained at
if you don't have one handy, the steps to set your fax machine's number is on page 42. The steps to take are:

Setting the Station ID
You should store your name or company name and fax number so
they print on all fax pages you send.
1 Press Menu/Set, 0, 3.
2 Enter your fax number
(up to 20 digits).
Press Menu/Set.
3 Use the dial pad to enter your name (up to 20 characters).
(See Entering Text on page B-11).
Press Menu/Set.
4 Press Stop/Exit.
You cannot enter a hyphen in the fax number. To enter a space
press once between numbers.
If the Station ID has already been programmed, the LCD will ask
you to press 1 to make a change or 2 to exit without changing.

One Touch Dialing numbers won't permanently save to FAX machine

If you followed the procedure F 7, 2 set, 1 for speed dial, enter your free speed dial space, enter your fax #, set, enter the name, set.(continue to next free speed dial key or stop) If this doesn't work then you may have a bad battery on the main board that saves the data if the power goes off.
