Repairing Copiers & Faxes/Panasonic Fax KX-FL511

Question
We have a Panasonic Fax Maching #KX-FL511 and we our toner cartridges keep leaking.  When we receive a fax we have toner on the right had side of the paper.  When I take out the toner to check it there is usually a lot of toner collected on the bottom of where it sits.  Any ideas?  Thank you.

Answer
first call around and see if how much a fuser or fixing unit costs and how much it cost to replace it... this is worst case scenario...

ok now that thats out of the way... next step is to check if your machine has a waste bucket... if it does empty it... then vacuum out the excess toner... then vacuum out your drum unit...

now test...

if issue returns...

your next step is to replace your drum unit...

9 times out 10 thats the end of it... but if its not then you will have to replace the fuser...


Now what you need to do is figure out if this is cost effective for you... it may be cheaper to get a new machine and junk this one...
