Question about Panasonic Panafax UF-550 Plain Paper Laser Fax

1 Answer

Panafax uf-550 3 queries. Screen flashes - does this mean that internal battery has died and fax memory lost whilst machine was unplugged? If yes, where is standby battery located? How do I program the machine to 'delay the receiving of faxes' so as incoming faxes can be picked up by the Server and received digitally. 3-4 seconds is all that is necessary. Thanks.

Re: Panafax uf-550

Hi! The battery pack is easy to find; Remove the small cover in the middle of the back of the fax where your line in is plugged in. When the cover is removed, you should se a print-board, and on the lower part there, you see a light green battery pack. Don't know if it's easy to find replacement... I'm don't know much about ussage of the fax, so not much help there...

Seriously, fax machines are designed to have their own dedicated analog phone line.

You can get a fax/phone switch from Radio Shack to hanle this problem.
