    Leroyal,



    you've broken my heart. Now since you're telling me to dump this fax, can you do me a huge favor?



    Please recommend to me a reasonably (not of them seem to be completely) reliable plain paper laser fax that I can buy as a replacement.



    Thanks

    Carlos

    My Panasonic KX-FL511 High Speed laser fax and copier worked perfectly for a year and has now died. It still sends faxes OK, but no longer receives or copies.

    I have restacked the paper, cleaned the roller and all of that but to no avail. It has been recommended that I dump it!

    If you agree with this, then fine. But please then tell me what a reasonable replacement machine of similar specs would be.
    Thanks
    Carlos

Have you recently bought paper for it... read your manual closely to see if it lists a maximum thickness of paper.

If the rollers are clean and no jams the printer has a fault and to tell the truth its to much to trouble shoot and fix ( me i would dump it there so cheap now days) i dont think there is nothing else to do with them incept clean the rollers and reset the machine take out the power for 5 mins thats about it

    Sorry Carlos,



    Since fax machines are being killed by the Multifunction Products (MFP), if you only need a fax, Panasonic is usually the most reliable. I've been servicing them for 30 years, and can only recommend Panafax.



    HP would be a second choice, only because you can order parts from their website.



    Best of luck.

Try cleaning the rollers with rubbing alcohol using a good quality paper towels, I find there is a buildup on the rollers causing streaking on the paper. If that fails the print head must be suspect.

Hello,

This sounds like a problem with the paper pick up rollers. I would suggest cleaning the rollers with a little isopropyl alcohol. Please make sure the machine is turned off when doing the cleaning. Let the rollers dry for a few minutes. If this does not work, The rollers would probably have to be replaced.

The printer will not pick up a sheet of paper when I try to print. I get the message that there is no paper even though there is.


What printer do you have?
This problem is caused by "used" pickup rollers, that are the rubber rollers that pickup up the paper. As they cannot pick the paper, you get the message that there is not paper.
You may clean the rollers using a clean cloth with a litlle of alcohol and it should solve your problem.
