Hi, My office fax machine will not send or receive faxes, or make copies. I recently replaced the toner cartridge, and then the problems began. It keeps saying either printing online, or sending online,...

Sounds like a glitch in the memory has left a document there, unable to print. You'll need to clear it out by going into the Maintenance Mode. Maintenance Mode is not mentioned in your user's manual, because there are several functions available that can seriously disable the machine. All you have to do to be safe is follow these instructions to get into the mode, clear the memory, then get out without messing around with other functions.
Press these keys in rapid succession:

* (the star on the dialing keypad)

Do that whole sequence in 2 seconds or less, ignoring all the beeping the machine will assault you with. It's designed to not allow some to accidentally enter Maintenance Mode; if you wait for the beeping to stop, you'll fail, left in some part of the normal menus. When you succeed, the word MAINTENANCE will appear on the display, and all the lights will flash in unison. If that doesn't happen, just touch the STOP button and try again.

Once in maintenance Mode, touch 91 on the number pad. The display will say Initializing or something like that as it clears all the documents form the memory. Your programmed phone numbers and settings will not be affected. When it finishes it will go back to MAINTENANCE. Unplug the power for a few seconds, then plug it back in. The machine should be fine and ready to use.

If Function 91 doesn't work, you should try going back into MAINTENANCE and touch 01 instead. It will clear all memory back to the point it was when you first unboxed the machine. But I think 91 will take care of everything.

Not able to receive a fax, but able to send a fax

Welcome FixYa! I'm the expert that has chosen your issue to fix. Now let's get started!

I believe the issue is that your machine is set to Manual Mode. The manual mode is used where you have only one phone line and you only receive occasional faxes. In this mode, the machine won't automatically take faxes, but you can send faxes fine.

If this is the case, and you receive a lot of faxes and you only want to receive faxes only, you will need to change your mode to Fax Only, as follows:

  1. Press Function, then
  2. Press Data Registration, then
  3. Press Set, then
  4. use up/down arrows to find RX Settings on the display, then
  5. Press Set (ECM RX will Display), then
  6. use up/down arrows to find RX Mode, then
  7. Press Set (Fax/Tel AutoSw will display, then
  8. Use up/down arrows to find (Fax Only Mode), then
  9. Press Set (Incoming Ring should be displayed), then
  10. Press stop/reset to return to standby mode.
  11. Confirm that display reads (Fax Only).
The machine will now treat all incoming calls as faxes and ignore all voice calls.

Thats about it! Thanks again for using

P.S. - If you find that the solution/answer I provided led you to, or resulted in a fix, please close the ticket with a FixYa! rating. I would be very grateful for your show of appreciation.

I have my husband's Panafax UF 895 fax which I am using since my other fax broke. We set it up, but he can't find the manual -- I can fax out and copy, but can't receive faxes. On the display it says...

Your machine is set to Manual Receive.
You need to change Function 17 to 2.
Go to Fax Parameters on the below link to help guide you through programming the fax parameters.

Basically, you hit FUNCTION, then #7, Press #4 and Set,Enter 17, hit Set, enter 2, Set. After you are done, then press STOP, and your machine should be set to AUTO RECEIVE.

Here is a link for the user manual:

You should probably save a copy of the manual on your computer incase the link is lost or shut down in the future.

I hope this helped.
If you have more questions, please repost again and remember to leave a rating if I have helped you.

Good luck.
Mac =)
