Help with Sharp Fax UXP100 . When sending a fax they are going very, very slow. What should I troubleshoot? Thx


Check your phone line by removing fax and plugging a normal handset into the line socket and then listen to line. If a line has noise on it, it will slow transmission down, it can also cause wiggly lines on transmitt and receive, if this is the case, it needs to be dealt with by your phone line provider, just report a noisy line

Having the machine set to fine in transmission settings can also cause slow faxs, and a dirty scanner glass can also cause receiver image to have marks on received image but it is normally marks down the page

hope my good deed free for the day helps.

cheers

Can't get fax machine to work. I need to enter ECM mode on the machine so I can receive faxes but on the report print out it's saying mode G3. I can send faxes but can't receive them. Please...


Doubt if you need to set up the fax with ECM ( error correction mode )...a lot of fax's come with ECM these days set to ON. Don't know why because in the majority of cases the phone lines are of good enough quality that its not necessary. However, that said; I would suggest you pick up your handset and listen to the dial tone on the phone/fax line and listen to see if you are hearing static noises...if you do then its likely you have a bad line and should report it to your phone provider.
If the line is good, then I would ask you to try and make a phone call off your fax machine(assuming it has a handset) and again listen to the sounds off the line. I would then get someone locally with a fax machine to send you a test page to see if the machine works from a different number/location.

Fax sends certain pages in duplicate


If it only happens with that one vendor, the problem is almost certainly either on their end or somewhere in the interaction between the two fax machines.

The most likely answer is that their fax machine has a problem receiving some pages (either because the line is noisy or for another reason) so it has to reprint them. You could tell your vendor to try turning off error correction on their fax machine and see if that makes a difference.

Hope that helps.

MY HP Fax machine won't send fax, sends error what is wrong with the machine it's a 2007 Model 1040. when I am sending the fax after one page it beeps a lot and then feeds the rest of the pages. then on...


You either have a noisy or Digital phone line.

Have your phone company check the line.

I have NEVER seen a bad fax modem, unless it was fried by a lightning strike.

Sending and rec faxes


The protocol is failing after the check frame is received. Most likely noisy tel line, but could be attenuation problem. Either way, have the lines checked by telco.

Fax not clear


Noisy phone line can cause this or it could be drum cartridge or even fuser, check phone line for noise by listening to it, if noisy report it or put on required filter if using ADSL.

Also test machine when doing a copy, and when printing a report, is there a problem too?

without more info you fault is one of these.. line, drum cartridge , fuser or dirty scan glass (where originals are fed.)
