Question about Panasonic Panafax UF-885 Plain Paper Laser Fax

1 Answer

Printout is 60% light grey with mostly unreadable text.

My printouts have been increasingly more illegible over the last 30 faxes. A grayed out band approximately one inch wide has grown to nearly the entire page.

In what direction to you put in the paper when sending a fax? Up or Down?Front or Back? Thanks

Up or down doesn't matter much, as the recipient can always turn the printout around :) But generally putting the documents upside down will make the fax scan the top of the page first.
As far as front/back is concerned, it depends on the construction - if you look at the document feeder you will see a symbol of a sheet with a corner bent, showing the back side. If there are stripes (symbolizing text) on that corner, you must put the document(s) face down; if the stripes are on the rest of "sheet" - put them face up.
In your case most probably it will be face down. You can always check that, and the quality of document scanning (whether the document is not too light for example) by using the "Copy" function of your fax.

Ricoh fax 2050L displays: "Check paper size", and also shifts image or text toward bottom margin by 3 inches or so. Sometimes locks up during printout.

Thru user tools check what size is said to be in the fax and if it has the optional tray that size too. -Carl

Poor fax printout quality

I would say you have a bad drum / toner cartridge.

Stuff you receive with vertical lines is probably the sender's dirty scanner.

Printout problem

Hi Jpex,
If all the other printouts are fine then the problem is more than likely with the programme that the file is downloaded to.
Save the document and the click on edit and change the contrast settings to make the print darker

Fax history

Depending on your model, You need to press the MENU button, or check if there is a REPORTS button. For either case, scroll through the display until you come to the PRINT REPORTS mode. It may be worded differently on your machine, but what you are looking for is the FAX ACTIVITY report. You can also get printouts of TRANSMISSON OR RECEIVE ACTIVITY, and also CALLER ID, iIf you encounter a command called PROTOCAL DUMP, this also is a printout of fax activity.. Whether your activity report goes back to july 2007 is unknown. Normally an activity report shows a certain number of activities per printout, say the last 50 fax operations. It is not based on a certain timefrane.
