Having a clicking noise problem when installing a new toner cartridge into the fax machine. Reusing the old cartridge makes the noise go away. There is nothing wrong with the new toner (we have 2 and both...


You state that you have 2 new toners and both make a noise, but the old one does not. If both the two new toners came from the same source then it is possible that the vendor has a quality control problem and manufactured several defective cartridges. It does happen. If these are not genuine Muratec toners, that makes it all the more likely because often they are remanufactured and attention was not paid to details. Is the old cartridge from the same vendor and does it bear the same brand name if it is not a genuine Muratec item? 15 years in this business tells me that if the old one is quiet and the new ones are noisy, something is wrong with the cartridges, not your machine.

Our fax machine has been saying replace drum for a while and faxes have been getting darker and darker we cleaned it but now we can send but not receive what is the drum?


Hi,
the drum is green roller in housing with toner, you should order the drum cartridge for your fax. With new drum you get the how to manual also. Follow the procedure.
NOTE THAT THE DRUM UNIT IS SEPARATE FROM TONER UNIT.

Hope that helps!

"Toner Life End" with new cartridge in place


take out the toner form the drum, on the left side of the toner there is a white tab sat in a half circle type cut out. it should be located at its far right position, carefully push it anti clockwise until it stops, may need a screwdriver to start it moving as its a bit stiff.
put it back in the drum and give it a try

Panasonic Panafax U-788 Error Code 021


You may have had a power failure. A technician must reset the fuser memory, or replace the fuser (bad lamp or thermister)

OR just a bad toner cartridge (no kidding) on the uf-788

Drum Cartridge


The drum and toner are all in one cartridge on that product.
You can shake it and see if that will help. But even at that its low and will need replaced soon. Price looks to be about $66.
