Question about Panasonic KX-FL511 Plain Paper Laser Fax

Rod in gear box fell out

The rod in the gear box that has a cog on the right, rubber in the middle, and a hook on the left fell out. It looks like it should slip back in, but this is very difficult to do since the cover does not open wide enough to work on it. Paper will not pull through when making copies or receiving faxes without this mechanism.

I think your machine has a stopper arm on the doc feeder. usually it will unsnap to allow you more clearance.

Error 1200


Error code: 1200
But it is the same as the Lexmark.

This error code is commonly associated with the Dell 922 printer. Usually you might see the cartridge moving front and back and slamming itself against the printer. You need to tighten the strings located on the back of the printer and then it should work fine

Clean the carriage rail. This is the round chrome piece that the carriage assy that holds the cartridges rides on. Use a paper towel that is slightly moist.
Be sure to not force anything. Unplug the printer after you get the carts in the middle. Move them to one side and clean and then move them to the other and repeat.


Lift up the scanner to reveal the cartridge compartment; under the chrome rod on which the cartridges run there are two small gaps about 8cm apart. In the right one should sit the paper sensor which is a small black rod that hooks downwards; the problem I had was my sensor had bent up and out of the gap so all I had to do was bend it gently back into position using a small screwdriver.

Hope you get it to go.

Continuous open phone line


see what kind of telephone cord do you use.
For Ricoh fax to work properly the telephone cord should have only two wires.
if yours cord has more than two wires don't worry simply on one end of the cord cut the two other wires i prefer to cut the wires on the end where the fax is connected.
Remember cut the two wires from the outside of the cord and left to be connected just the two wires from the inside. As you will see the cord is flat and there has four wires one to another so as i had sad cu the two wires from the left and right side and there will be connected only the middle two wires

either dubree on the rollers or on the corona wires, wires clean with acalohol and q-tip, very carefully or you will brake the fire, look where the line is at and open the machine and locate where the issue is and remove and clean this area very carefully.

Loud grinding noise when paper is feeding through machine


Mine was indeed a gear problem. Took off the top cover and poked around. Found two areas that may have caused the grinding.
1. The lower roller shaft had slid to the left out of it's groove. By removing the handset cradle (3 release tabs are accessed underneath the toner hatch.) I could loosen the "gear box" (a black contraption with all the gears inside) and then snug the bottom roller into proper position.
2. I removed the "gear box" to look around. Don't know if I dislodged one of the gears while doing so, but noticed one was dislodged ;-)
This required opening up the gear box by removing 2 screws and lifting off the motor. Then i could get at a gear that had come loose from a claw sort of piece. Note: the teeth of the loose gear needed to be on the motor side when sliding it back into the claw thingy. It seems to use a metal clip for friction control and perhaps proper spacing.

I noticed "some" wearing of gears, but doubt this is an issue. This machine has been used VERY hard for years and now, just by re-aligning things, it works once again.

My googling barely found any mention of troubleshooting this machine, so I shudder to think what finding parts would be like.

Error 0502 from my fax series 6170


Hardware Error: 0502. On the multi function machine seems to be a coating on the metal rod that the cartridges travel on. Just wipe this rod with a kleenex and the problem seems to go away. Somehow it presents a drag on the cartridges and causes an error.

The problem may be in the busing or the shaft that actually holds the gear in place. try turning it by hand, and also try turning it with a little bit of pressure. Check the shafts and especially the base of the gears where they are mounted. Sometimes those gears will wear down at tht point from constant pressure and rotation, causing the gears to slip during operation.

Easy hey .i checked the back of my printer and it took me a day to figure it out, it was only when i took it apart and check every component when i realized the importance or this piece of plastic rod on a spring..
