I have a Panasonic KX-FM220 that won't power up. It worked fine just before I put it in the closet (bought new all in one). A month later, I plugged it in and it won't do anything at all. The outlet works fine but the fax unit will not power up.
Any suggestions or should I just trash the machine?

is your line provider ok.connect your line to ordinary phone to check if there is really a dial tone from the line provider.if there is a dial tone please let the analog board be cheked by a technician near you
I would double check your phone cord. There is usually 2 jacks in the back of the fax machine. 1 is for Line, and 1 is for phone.
Your phone cord should be hooked up in the LINE jack that goes to the wall.
I would also double check your phone cord on another phone to make sure the cord is good.
If you look at the clear connector that you plug into your wall and fax machine, does it have 4 copper/gold color wires contacts imbedded in the clear plastic connector?
Another thing to try, if you fax machine has a Line and a Phone connector, try plugging in a phone in the PHONE connector. Then hook up another phone cord going from the LINE to the WALL jack.
If you get a dial tone on your Phone, then you know you have it connected correctly. If no dial tone, then I would go back to the phone cord.
check those things and get back to me and I will see if I can help you with more suggestions.
Good luck. Mac =)
unfortunately it sounds like the thermal head is defective, could possibly be a few other things but either of them to be fixed is going to be not far off the cost of a new mc, probably better to put the money into a new one rather than pour money into an older mc, before you do though, check the paper/film for anything visually wrong.
