Question about Panasonic KX-FL501 Plain Paper Laser Fax
The phone works fine but I can't fax or do anything. Press fax or copy of anything. It just stays on please wait. I unplugged it and that is the message i have.

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 is the copy when you try to just make a copy of something? If it copies good, then it might be the senders machine.
If when you make a copy, and the copy is blurred, then it is probably your ribbon/ink cartridge.
If it is the cartridge, just replace the cartridge, and you should be good to go.
Hope this solves your problem.

I would double check your phone cord. There is usually 2 jacks in the back of the fax machine. 1 is for Line, and 1 is for phone.
Your phone cord should be hooked up in the LINE jack that goes to the wall.
I would also double check your phone cord on another phone to make sure the cord is good.
If you look at the clear connector that you plug into your wall and fax machine, does it have 4 copper/gold color wires contacts imbedded in the clear plastic connector?
Another thing to try, if you fax machine has a Line and a Phone connector, try plugging in a phone in the PHONE connector. Then hook up another phone cord going from the LINE to the WALL jack.
If you get a dial tone on your Phone, then you know you have it connected correctly. If no dial tone, then I would go back to the phone cord.
check those things and get back to me and I will see if I can help you with more suggestions.
