1.9 Recording paper
The unit can hold up to 20 sheets of 64 g/m2 to 80 g/
m2 paper.
Note for recording paper:
R Do not use the following types of paper:
14
Paper with a cotton and/or fibre content that is
over 20 %, such as letterhead paper or paper
used for resumes
– Extremely smooth or shiny paper, or paper that is
highly textured
– Coated, damaged or wrinkled paper
– Paper with foreign objects attached, such as tabs
or staples
– Paper which has dust, lint or oil stains
– Paper that will melt, vaporize, discolour, scorch
or emit dangerous fumes near 200 °C, such as
vellum paper. These materials may transfer onto
the fusing roller and cause damage.
– Moist paper
Some paper only accepts print on one side. Try using
the other side of the paper if you are not happy with
the print quality or if misfeeding occurs.
For proper paper feeding and best print quality, we
recommend using long-grained paper.
Do not use paper of different types or thickness at the
same time. This may cause a paper jam.
Avoid double-sided printing.
Do not use paper printed from this unit for
double-sided printing with other copiers or printers.
This may cause a paper jam.
To avoid curling, do not open paper packs until you
are ready to use the paper. Store unused paper in the
original packaging, in a cool and dry location.
For customers who live in high humidity areas:
Please be sure to store paper in an air-conditioned
room at all times. If you print using moist paper, it may
cause paper jam.
Fan the paper to prevent paper jams.

10.3.4 Fax – sending
Problem
Cause & Solution
I cannot send documents.
R The other party’s fax machine is busy or has run out of recording paper. Try
again.
R The other party’s machine is not a fax machine. Check with the other party.
R The other party’s fax machine failed to answer the fax automatically. Send
the fax manually (page 27).
R The memory is full of received documents and the quick scan (feature #34
on page 41) is ON. Turn this feature OFF, and send the fax again.
I cannot send a fax overseas.
R Use the overseas transmission mode (feature #23 on page 40).
R Add two pauses at the end of the telephone number or dial manually.
The other party complains
that letters on their received
document are distorted or not
clear.
R If your line has special telephone services such as call waiting, the service
may have been activated during fax transmission. Connect the unit to a line
that does not have these services.
R Another telephone on the same line is off the hook. Hang up the telephone
and try again.
R Try copying the document with this unit. If the copied image is clear, there
may be something wrong with the other party’s machine.
R Adjust the scan contrast using feature #58 (page 43).
The other party complains
that black lines, white lines or
smudges appear on their
received document.
R The scanner glass or rollers are dirty with correction fluid, etc. Clean them
(page 62). Please do not insert a document before correction fluid has
dried completely.
Documents frequently
misfeed.
R Clean the document feeder rollers, recording paper feeder and rubber flap
(page 62).
10.3.5 Fax – receiving
Problem
Cause & Solution
I cannot receive documents.
R The ink film is empty. Replace the ink film with a new one (page 12).
I cannot receive documents
automatically.
R The receiving mode is set to TEL mode.
Change the receiving mode:
– TAM/FAX mode (page 31), FAX ONLY mode (page 32) or TEL/FAX
mode (page 30).
R The time taken to answer the call is too long. Decrease the number of rings
(page 37, feature #06 on page 39, or #78 on page 44).
R The greeting message is too long. Record a shorter message (page 35).
The display shows
“CONNECTING.....”, but
faxes are not received.
R The receiving mode is set to FAX ONLY mode and the incoming call is not
a fax. Change the receiving mode:
– TAM/FAX mode (page 31), TEL mode (page 30) or TEL/FAX mode
(page 30).
A blank sheet is ejected.
R If a blank sheet is ejected after the received document is printed out, the
size of the document sent by the other party is as large as, or larger than,
the recording paper, and the receiving reduction rate is not programmed
correctly. Program the proper rate in feature #36 (page 42).
R The other party placed the document in their fax machine facing the wrong
way. Check with the other party.

Please do not reuse the ink film!
Please use genuine Panasonic replacement film. Refer to page 9 for further
details.
R The thermal head is dirty. Clean it (page 63).
R If documents can be copied properly, the unit is working normally. The other
party may have sent a faint document or there may be something wrong
with the other party’s machine. Ask them to send a clearer copy of the
document or to check their fax machine.
R Some paper has instructions recommending which side to print on. Try
turning the recording paper over.
R You may have used paper with cotton and/or fibre content that is over 20%,
such as letterhead or resume paper.
Recording paper frequently
misfeeds.
R Clean the document feeder rollers, recording paper feeder and rubber flap
(page 62).
Letters on the received
document are distorted.
R If your line has special telephone services such as call waiting, the service
may have been activated during fax reception. Connect the unit to a line that
does not have these services.
I cannot receive documents
using the cordless handset.
R The memory is full of received documents due to a lack of recording paper,
a lack of ink film or a recording paper jam. Install paper (page 14), install ink
film (page 12) or remove the jammed paper (page 61).
When an extension telephone
is connected, I cannot receive
documents by pressing
MGNMBNM9N.
R You must set remote fax activation to ON (feature #41 on page 42)
beforehand.
R You may have changed the remote fax activation code from MGNMBNM9N
(default setting). Verify the remote fax activation code (feature #41 on
page 42).
R The memory is full of received documents due to a lack of recording paper,
a lack of ink film or a recording paper jam. Install paper (page 14), install ink
film (page 12) or remove the jammed paper (page 61).
The other party complains
that they cannot send a
document.
R The receiving mode is set to TEL mode. Receive the document manually

ONLY mode (page 32) or TEL/FAX mode (page 30).
R The memory is full of received documents due to a lack of recording paper,
a lack of ink film or a recording paper jam. Install paper (page 14), install ink

R The caller information will not be displayed if a message is recorded by using
MMEMON (page 36).
10.3.8 If a power failure occurs
R The unit will not function.
R The unit is not designed for making emergency telephone calls when the power fails. Alternative arrangements
should be made for access to emergency services.
R Fax transmission and reception will be interrupted.
R If delayed transmission (feature #25 on page 41) is programmed and a power failure prevents the document from
being sent at the set time, the document will be sent after power is restored.
R If any fax documents are stored in the memory, they will be lost. When power is restored, a power down report
will be printed stating which documents in memory have been erased.
