Question about Panasonic KX-FL541 Plain Paper Laser Fax
When sending a fax, the paper does not feed automatically. Usually, the paper has to be pushed through to get it started, then it feeds.
I don't know any specific info related to the panasonic fax, but here is some "general" information that is usually universal. The fact that the paper feeds "with some help" indicates that everything is working... just not as well as it should. Very often, a problem like yours can be rectified by simply cleaning the original take-up/in rollers with some alchohol (I usually use 90%+ rubbing alchohol as it evaporates quickly and leaves little, if any, residue) on a rag. Also, there is usually some sort of "pressure pad/roller" (sometimes called a retard pad/roller") on these types of machines that work in conjunction with the primary original paper take-up roller. It can be either dirty or worn as well. This should also be cleaned. If it's a pad type system, often it just clicks/clips into place, and can be removed, the rubber pad itself flipped over in the retainer, re-installed, and the "un-worn" side then faces the paper offering better pressure for feed, and preventing multiple page feed. Hope this helps.

Tips for a great answer:
Solution for Fax1360, if this does not work please let me know as this process should be the same.
Recording an outgoing message (OGM) on an external TAD 7
Timing is important in recording this message. The message sets up the ways to handle both manual and automatic fax reception.
a Record 5 seconds of silence at the beginning of your message. (This allows your machine time to listen for the fax CNG tones of automatic transmissions before they stop.)
b Limit your speaking to 20 seconds.
c End your 20-second message by giving your Fax Receive Code for people sending manual faxes. For example: 'After the beep, leave a message or send a fax by pressing *5 1 and Start.'
Recommendation: recommend beginning your OGM with an initial 5-second silence because the machine cannot hear fax tones over a resonant or loud voice. You may try omitting this pause, but if your machine has trouble receiving, then you must rerecord the OGM to include it.
