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.

I JUST REPLACED MY TONER AND DRUM AND THE COPY IS
I'm not familiar with your machine, but generally, you will have a light source to to illuminate the original (it may be behind clear glass), and maybe a mirror too.
If any of these are dusty, it will show up as poor contrast on your copy.
Accessing those for cleaning can be easy or require a good bit of disassembly.

Verical lines of inconsistent or un-even printing,
In almost every case, the problem you describe can be traced back to 2 things. Dirty corona wire or dirty drum (or both). Pull out the toner cartridge, slide the wire cleaner back and forth a few times, clean the drum. The gently shake the toner cartridge from side to side to evenly distribute the toner and replace. This should solve your problem. Best of luck.

How do I change the date stamp that prints when I
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.

Copy mechanism now results in paper jam
Make sure there is not too much paper loaded, have only the half of the current load in the bay. Make sure the paper is a little loose, if inserted too tightly may cause paper jams.

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.

Print smudges and ghosts down the page
Usually ghosting is caused by the fusing unit, which usually means that it needs replaced to be honest. You could try getting into the fuser and giving the rollers a wipe, they may have dry toner on them which could also cause the fault. but i'd say the fuser could need changed!!!
Hope that helps
