Question about Panasonic KX-FM220 Plain Paper Thermal Fax

Fax film pulls through with copies

After printing a few copies the fax film gets drawn into/along with the copy being made. Ultimately the fax film tears. I cleaned the unit thouroughly, this seemed to help a little. I phoned Panasonic, they suggested it is a timing problem with the gears on the fax film cartridge. How do I set this?

Timing is usually associated with a motor, try and see if the motor can be dismanteld, clean with alcohol and put oil on finger to lube inside.

If not then motor needs to be changed.

I have a black line showing up on my faxed documents. I have opened it up, changed the film and re- set it, but the problem persists. The machine is about 5 years old.


Most likely a fax has been sent or a page copied with 'white out' (Liquid Paper), still wet on the page. As the page feeds over the scanner, (a narrow strip of glass that runs across the width of the page along the feed path) the wet liquid paper comes off on the glass as a thin line and dries. Thereafter, when copying, scanning or sending a fax, the scanner light does not go through the liquid paper streak and the result when printed is a thin vertical line that runs the full length of the page.

If this is your problem: follow the path that the paper travels when sending a fax or making a copy, until you find the scanner (narrow glass strip). Take a clean, soft cloth and a small amount of methylated spirit (or white spirit) and remove the now dried Liquid Paper from the glass. Clean the whole strip ensuring that the glass is left clean and dry.

4100 when I copy I get a black line down the middle Ok after cleaning inside top cover, but,comes back after a few copies. Printing and sending fax ok.


Try printing out a report. If the line is still there you need to use the wire cleaner on your print cartridge or if that doesn't work, replace the drum unit.

Copying


You should be able to open the machine up easily and see the jam. It is a very small unit and no plece for the paper to hide. Does the unit use a film ribbon to print from. If so, remove the ribbon to see the jam.

How Can I Reprint a Fax?


Here's a trick that I used on the Canon thermal transfer years ago. First take out the thermal transfer unit and roll up the black transfer sheet to the begining of the lost fax. Then reload the paper. Next get a solid black original equal and make a copy. The result you should get a negative copy of the lost fax. Repeat this step until all the faxes are recovered..
