Here is a link to the owner's manual: http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/UF885.PDF It appears that there is an optional parallel port interface that can be added to the unit (see p. 173), which will make it behave as a printer and scanner. The implication would be that you could not use it as a fax in this way. It is very likely that you would be better off buying a modern, inexpensive "all-in-one" unit for connecting to your PC. Basic units are in the $100 range. Personally, I love my HP OfficeJet 5610.

Panafax UF-885 - Error Code 055

Error 055 is a laser error. the laser is not spinning at the proper speed and may need replacement. There is another solution, where some ferrite cores are added around three cables to reduce electronic interference. Best call a local technician for further diagnosis.

Panasonic Panafax UF - 885 unable to send faxes direct

Hi BrendaAsh,
Thank you for the above information.
Please ask rlandriani to access the user parameters on the fax machine and turn the Quick Memory XMT to "Off" or "Invalid".
This should set the machine for direct manual sending without memory intervention.
Regards
Gavin.

Panasonic copier/fax UF 885

It sounds like you are stuck in the boot-up mode.

Try this:
Open the toner door and remove the cartridge
Turn the machine off
Open the document feeder by pulling straight up
While turning the machine back on, hold down the pointed switch actuator closest to the small glass
Close the document feeder..display should read "RAM INITIALIZE"
Scroll down to "SHIPMENT SET"
Press "SET"
Press "2" for "NO"
Wait for the machine to reboot (could take 5 mins)

Some times a bad toner cartridge will cause this.
If this does not work, you have a bad Main PC Board. Uneconomical to repair.
