Replace the film, replace the paper(properly installed)and check all covers re-seat them, also check to make sure that the tab that goes into the machine for each cover is not broke if one is then copier thinks that cover is not closed. buy new film.

Check Film and Cover Open: KX-FPC95

Check for slack in film between supply and take-up rollers. Manually advance take-up roller to remove slack before closing cover.

Have replaced film and unit keeps saying "cover open" or check film. I replaced film correctly twenty times.

On some units it is possible to install the film upside down( backwards) but since you've done it multiple times it is more likely that the sensor that sees the film is broken or blocked. Look for a small block with two little lenses. They don't usually break per se but can get blocked by debris like scraps of paper.
Good luck

Replaced film, unit say's "Check film, Cover open". Film is fine, cover is closed, can't figure ths out?

I had that problem once and I unplugged it for 5 minutes and then replugged it in and it was fine.
That's what worked for me.

Opening the cover

This model print on Thermal transfer technology: there is a black film inside the fax.
Open the cover from the rght side with the green or grey button.
You can then see the black film.
Usually, the top part is the new, the lower is th used.
To know if the film is near empty, you can remove the film from its place and see which side is bigger.
Good Luck.

The film cartridge can be purchased at almost any office supply store like Staples, Office Max, Office Depot, online and even Ebay.

IF there is film still left, make sure that the tension of the film is tight where there isn't any slack. If there is too much slack, or you are at the end of the roll, then you will get that message on your machine. One thing you can try is to roll the film backwards. There is a supply roll, and a take up roll. Just take the cartridge out and spin the roll the opposite way for about 5 feet or so. Then place the cartridge back in and see if it works. If it works then all you need to do is buy a new cartridge.
Hope this helps.
Good luck

FO-P610 Fax problem

You are going to have to go back to the imaging film and use that for all the stuff because your fax has got used to the imaging film!
