FA-A505 is the Automatic Doc Feeder number and not the copier model number. Without knowning the machine model number, This is just a general code for 95% of the Panasonic Copiers that use this code. If the U14 is flashing on machine, then check your waste container bottle for the toner. (Not the toner bottle, there should be a waste container that needed to be changed or at leasted emptied and then washed out with COLD water) Be warned.. washing the bottle out will make a mess out of your sink, so it is suggested to do in in a basement tub/sink.
If you do not have another waste container, then empty as much of the used toner in a plastic bag, and then rinse the bottle out. The bottle does not have to be completely dry when you re install it. Just shake as much of the water out as possible. If the U14 goes away, you are good to go. If the U14 is still showing, open the door and remove the bottle and see if you can close the door WITHOUT the bottle. If the U14 goes away, then the bottle is not clean enough. DO NOT RUN THE MACHINE WITHOUT THE BOTTLE, or you will have a mess in your machine. (some models will let you close the door without the bottle, and some wont).

Your best bet, is to replace it with a replacement container if your church has one and order some spares to keep on hand.
Hope this helps.
Good luck

Lanier 6720 U14 error on screen

U14 is a user code for waste toner full.
Open front cover and you will see a clear plastic bottle at the bottom of the machine; lift this out and dispose carefully of waste toner (do not reuse). When fitting back into machine, make sure that inside of bottle is clean as the detection sensor looks through the bottle to see if it is empty and if toner is covering inside of bottle, the message will remain.

My panasonic copier is displaying U14

Your waste toner bottle is full. You can replace this bottle but what I would do is just empty the bottle and make sure it is clean then re-install. Just dump it into a trash bag being careful not to make a mess.
