Question about Panasonic KX-FP121 Plain Paper Thermal Fax

1 Answer

Document sent is blank for recipient

I have a Panasonic KX-FP121 plain paper fax. For 2 days now, when I send a fax it is only blank white paper received on the other end. Also the machine on my end seems "louder" than in the past while the paper is being fed through the rollers.

    Machine does not copy either. haha text IS face down. Is it possible to replace the "scanner light"?

    This unit is about 6 or 7 years old. I guess it doesn't owe me anything.

Hi there check the machine scanner light by putting the original in the feeder and doing a copy. If the printout comes out OK then it either could be the other fax machine you are trying to send it to or you have a intermittent fault with your scanning lamp (Section).

You also must make sure that the original is text face down.

Hope this helps you
Thanks J

    The best this it see if you can get a second hand one that has a problem with paper feed and then change the scanner unit. There is a slim chance that you might be able to get the scanner ass'y' but don't hold your breath as after all it is 6-7 years old.

    Sorry I couldn't be any more help
    thanks J

Faxes coming in print fine but outgoing faxes people are saying are coming out blank on their end

If outgoing faxes are turning up blank on the recipients end, you may be putting the paper to be faxed in backwards. Outgoing faxes should be sent face-down. If you are sending properly, either your scanner is failing (test it by copying a document) or the recipient is having fax issues on their end.

Journal print out

It should be in the manual how to change this but within the menu button you will need to sort through and enter the one that says TTI settings within there, there should be a auto journal section you should set that to error only so when a document doesn't go a error sheet is printed.

Please let me know if you cannot find the manual as I will try and find one from work.

Hope this is useful for you
Thanks J
