Question about Panasonic PanaFax UF-490 All-In-One Laser Printer

Printer Code and Power Failure Error

We had a power outage at work over the weekend.

The power is back on but the Panafax UF-490 will not print any faxes. There are two error codes that flash "Printer Error 021" and "Power Failure 887".

I have tried unplugging it for a few minutes then plugging it back in, in other outlets.  I have also replaced all the cords, etc but it's still not working.
We have no tech support and we have no service contract with anyone for this fax machine.

We are able to fax out, however, and we are receiving faxes and they are being stored in the memory, they just aren't printing.

HELP !

The fuser may be damaged or worn. A certified tech will need to replace it. Did you have a power outage? Ray

You may have had a power failure. A technician must reset the fuser memory, or replace the fuser (bad lamp or thermister)

OR just a bad toner cartridge (no kidding) on the uf-788
