Question about Panasonic KX-FL501 Plain Paper Laser Fax

2 Answers

Poor print quality

Just took the 501 out of storage and when I receive or copy, the print always has areas of missing information, like something is on the drum. (runs all the way down the page) I've changed the drum and toner and it's in the same place on both drums. Is their a glass area where the laser reads that could be crudded up? Any other suggestions? Thanks, Jim

Remove the drum unit from the machine, you will see a glass called **** glass under the drum unit. if that glass is dirty, just clean it with alcohol and cotton.

white lines is the cause if that part is dirty.

White "lines" on copies and prints ? - side to side every 1.5 inches ( approx) is blank ( no toner) creating "lines".


the drum is light sensitive and if one side was exposed to sunlight for as little as 20 seconds could have that effect , it is at best a shot in the dark (no pun intended)

Konika Minolta Copier prints half dark pages


If it is only causing an image problem when you copy and not when you print, then there is something wrong with the optics under the glass. Check and see if you have any mirrors out of place or if the scanner looks crooked. If you have the machine set up to scan try and scan to SMB or email to see if it still has the problem. If everything looks correct under the glass and scans to SMB and email look bad like the copies, you may have a bad CCD assembly, or a bad board.

Konica 1015 copier has been in storage for 10 years


You need a drum cleaning blade. These blades will go bad if left unused for that much time. This part cleans all that toner off of the drum in between copies. Cheap part at about $25.00 to $35.00
Just google konica 1015 drum cleaning blade and you will find one.

Dell 1600N MF Laser Printer- Blank vertical strip on all prints


you need do follow steps:
1) take out the cartridge find a cover there is the drum inside, the drum you can see the color on the drum surface
2) check out and clean any pieces of paper or dirty waste toner stuck there, because there is a waste toner cleaner on the drum surface which is like a long rubbon strip (something like that) you can spin anyway a little to clean.
3) if you check out any different color (vertical round drum), that is the drum surface worn or scratched. you can see the worn area show light color than normal area.
so you need change it better. 4) if the color all very same and still not fix, you need check again something stuck the drum surface near cleaner rubbon.

hope help you fix it, please take a rating let me know how much helped you thanks! keep in touch your question please.

When receiving a fax I get either big black plotches all over the page or thick black vertical lines running the whole length of the page to a point where I can no longer make out any of the information...


Try making a copy of something or printing a transmission report or journal from the "reports" menu. If the same problem is apparent on these printouts, then your drum unit or toner cartridge need to be replaced

Black pages when making a copy or printing something


Have you tried both drum and toner supplies? cause it sounds like a drum fault, if you have tried a new drum and toner, and it is doing it when printing internal reports, receiving fax's and copying then you have a tecnical issue to do with charge and this would likely render machine unecomical to repair (unless you can find a bad contact with drum on machine). If it receives faxs clearly but copys black then it is different issue (ie optics).
