I never had a password setup for rcv to memory. We recently had a power outage and when the power came back on it only received to memory and I am unable to access our documents. Is their anyway to remove the password or reset it without the password??

    On the Panafax UF-585 using "function 8-5 set 3 set" it is supposed to print if their is no password. If their is a password, it then asks for it. That is what happens to me. I have also tried the start and copy button. Thanks anyway

    In order to turn off the receive to memory it forces you to input the password before being able to make a change for security purposes. I also tried unplugging the machine and removing the backup battery hoping it would reset system to default settings but that didn't work either. Thanks

No 2 manufacturers use the same method. However it is unlikely that you need a password. To print the contents of the SAF memory, it requires a simple procedure. Either there is a resume button, or sometimes use the copy button or the start/copy button. Let me know which machine it is.

    OK now we are talking the same language.Set receive to memory option to off, then change the password. Function 5 set 2 set.

    Now try and print out documents. With Function 8 5 Set 3 Set

    I have the same problem. But now the machine is set to receive to memory and I can't change that without the now corrupt password. Can't turn off receive to memroy to change the password, without the password! Catch-22.

My Samsung facsimile sf40 doesn't receive any fax or sending any fax ok

I think you need auto receive mode. To do so press repeatedly RCV.MODE/POLL key until the indicator flashes rapidly. this will enable the fax in auto mode and turn to receive mode after 2 rings.

Said that cartridge was empty after changing cartridge,got that cleared and now it will not receive a fax. What do I need to do

Your faxes are probably stored in memory. They automatically print when the a) cartridge is installed properly full, b) fax has paper, c) there is no paper jam.

There also may be a "Print Hold" function activated.

1. Press <print hold> [RCV DATA PRINT] will display.
2. Press "Right Arrow" on the <start/memory> button.
3. Enter 4-digit Print Hold code.
4. Press <start/memory>. Printing will begin. If the wrong code is entered [WRONG CODE] will display. Go back to step 3 and start again. Once you've entered the wrong code 3 times, you will return to your standby display.

Non-stop printing with unreadable characters

hi Glenda, unplug the unit from it's power source, take out all the paper and leave it for about a hourplug it back in and try to run through setup again, it sounds like to me that your memory is either full, or got a "powersurge", like thunderstorm,power outage,etc if it starts acting up right off the bat then push the stop/reset button, you can either hold it down and count to ten, or push it quickly a couple of times, it should reset one of these ways, if it does remember which way in the event the power goes out again,clear the memory, and it should be alright, please let me know if this solved your problem, may god bless and happy 4th

Error Code 406

"XMT/RCV password does not match. Last 4 digits of TSI does not match with the last 4 digits of the ONE TOUCH, ABBR Telephone number." This is straight from the Panasonic service manual. I would suggest looking in the User's manual uner "passwords" and try to either reset or clear out the password info.
