What will be the reason for canon sensys fax-L 150 coping dark page but faxing and printing is ok.


First things first. Try and print report from the fax. Any kind of report. If it is printing OK, then the next step is to check if:

Your clients receive your faxes OK? If they are dark as well, then your scanner head is at fault.

When you make Copy on your fax and it prints dark it could be simply set with dark settings _or_because of the white calibration strip or roller being soiled or dirty, which acts as the ultimate white reference point for scanner _or_ the Scanner CCD sensor is in paper jam release position (too far away from reading the originals) just pull it back to normal feed position.

Or simply faulty scanner.

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.

Fax is received is very dark and almost unreadable


You can try using the menu to lighten the fax, but if all received faxes are dark, you may be experiencing a weak scan light. try making a copy instead of fax (which essentially is a fax printed to yourself) if also dark, its certainly your scanning imager that's failing. If that's the case I would recommend replacing the entire machine. Parts are expensive, and its a difficult to service part yourself. Also you may find that toner costs alone may pay for the replacement machine over this unit.

-Good Luck!

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.

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?
