90 percent of the time that is a phone line issue.
But, first thing to look at is see if someone has removed the phone line and placed the line into the extension of phone jack and not the one marked "line"
You may simply need to replace the phone line between the machine and jack.
Yes you may hear a dial tone, etc etc, but you are losing one of 3 things. Either some of the phone line voltage, phone line current or what is called decibel loss.
When you send, you make the phone connection like lifting the phone off the receiver, but the signal to receive must be strong enough for it to key the fax board modem to receive.
If you have another device plugged in on the same phone line. Try removig that item, ex, an answering maching, Credit card machine etc and see if it is interfering with receiving also.
There is a high percentage the phone line is the issue.
Some things to check on the machine itself. Make sure Junk Fax setting is OFF, Make sure ECM ( error correction mode) is ON. Make sure Secure Receive is OFF and manual receive is OFF. Those will be in your machine setups.
The Junk fax setting will stop almost all incomming faxes.
It is less likely a software corruption issue. But that is remotely possible.
Let me know please, Some other obsecure things that can cause this. But I think you will find one of the posted things will resolve your issue.

My panasonic kx-fl501 fax message says please wait and the keys don't work


I realize this thread is old, but I just encountered the same problem with my Panasonic KX-FL501. Pressing #9000* does not work, as none of the key pads are responding. When I lift the receiver I get a tone. But the keys don't respond when I dial. Display shows "please wait"..... I've been waiting for hours.

How do I change the date stamp that prints when I send a fax


Ring the person you sent the fax to and ask them to white-out the date printed and fill in the required date.

Alternatively, you could read the Operating Instructions (http://pdf.textfiles.com/manuals/FAXMACHINES/Panasonic%20KX-FL501%20Plain-Paper%20Laser%20Multifunction.pdf) and check page 17.

Panasonic KX-FL511 cannot receive faxes but can send


check to see if your phone line is plugged in the " L" or line slot on your fax machine if it is then press the speaker or monitor key and listen for dial tone. then you put a document into the feeder and dial your cell phone number and press send, when your cell phone rings answer and listen if you are getting a high pitched squeel. if you are then it should be working. try it the other way too by dialing from your cell and listen again for the squeel. if you still don't get the squeel you have a defective modem.

Thank You,

Mikey
