When sending fax, the reciever get a blacked out or very dark page. However when we recieve incoming fax, it's not dark at all. But if you copy a page , it is very dark.


hello, if you have already cleaned the contact image sensor, or cis unit, its located between both rollers when you lift up the top cover that has the buttons on it. sometimes, this cis/contact image unit fails, and will need to be replaced.

Dark vertical lines


You have to clean the scanner.Open the dock feeder area,and make sure the scanner glass is clean sometimes the glass look clean but just a smaal dot on the glass can cause a line.Clean also the white area above the scanner.The white area above the scanner help for shading operation of the mchine.Make sure you clean with a sullotion that can remove ink but not damage plastic.

Transmitted pages are too dark, practically unreadable :


I suspect your scanner unit is going bad or it is extremely dirty.

Making a copy gets same result as when you send.

Paper has dark marks down middle


If you make a copy, does the copy have dark areas down the middle of the page? If so, remove the toner cartridge and gently roll it around to redistribute the toner inside, maybe even replace the toner cartridge if you've had it a long while. If you still see unevenness, you may need to have the machine looked at.

If the copies you make on your machine look fine, then I would suspect that the person sending you the fax has a dirty scanning element. Check with them to see if they can clean the scanning element and it should improve the fax quality.

Panasonic KX-FP153 Copy too dark


Try unplugging the power cord and re-plugging. It sounds like your scanner assembly is going bad.

Vertical dark line on copies


That is comming from the scanner. If cleaning it well does not help, then it is one of the segments in the CCD assembly within the scanner that is the problem. That would requiring replacing tha scanner .
it could be a small scratch on that screen also.
Only thing you can try would be use some rubbing alcohol and a regular piece of 20 pound copy paper to clean the scanner glass/screen vigorously.

Dark line


If the line is not on your recived faxes then you need to clean the area the paper passes over when sending. any marks could cause this.

Incoming documents are too dark


Your thermal head seems to be going bad. No fix for it.

Are they dark when you make a copy?

Copies here and recipients faxes: dark, lined


How long has the drum been in there?
try this:
1-take out toner, look and see if it is ok. do you see stripes on it?
2- look at the drum are there any black rings on it? ( you did not specify white or black lines)
3- where the glass is on the opposite side ( the part you lifted to clean the glass, look at it standing from the back. you will see a white metal plate with some springs in it if you touch it. this is the reference that the fax has if there is/are a black dot on it it will give you a black line clean carefully. if it is scratched use white out to cover and make white again.

For the darkness try making a copy in photo mode if it is still too dark change drum.
