This is a common problem with HP printers and faxes. There are feed rollers inside the units that "grab" the top page and pull it through. These rollers have a "cat tongue" surface, and as they wear down, they don't grab as delicately as they used to.

I know they are easy to replace on HP printers (about 30 seconds, just remove the paper tray, slide old roller out and replace) - HP all-in-ones I imagine are roughly the same.

Here is what they look like (in general):

Note that the above link is not the exact part you need, just an image so you know what to look for and don't spend $100 when you only need to spend $10 :)

Hope this helps - remember to rate :)

We can send faxes with no issues but when we receive a fax that has multiple pages after the first couple of pages we get half pages, partial prin or blank pages. We were told it was a possible system...


Is it pulling two pages at once? Sometime a machine will start to pull a sheet normally, then the page below it will get dragged along by the friction between the two sheets. One page's print gets divided between the two. If that looks like the case, pull out the paper drawer, remove the paper, and lightly sand the little rubber or cork pad at the front, then wipe the dust off with a damp cloth and let it dry. Before putting the paper back in, grasp the stack at one end, and "fan" the other, allowing air to get between all the sheets.

Get into the machine's Paper menu to see what size is programmed for the tray. If you have Letter size in there, but it's set for some other size, all kinds of feeding problems can occur, including false jams.

The paper feed roller is controlled by a magnet lever inside the right side of the machine. It should click once to start each sheet feeding. I've seen one Fax 4100e that clicked over and over, feeding extra sheets, just like you described. It turned out to be the system board. Worse yet, Brother had switched factories in mid-production of this model, and the replacement board they sent us fed paper just fine, but wouldn't do anything right on the phone line. Couldn't dial, couldn't answer. They sent another replacement, and it was exactly the same. Brother eventually broke down and sent a replacement machine.

HI, FAXES AND COPIES SEEM TO SEPERATE ONTO TWO A4 SHEETS NOT ONE


i can't tell you step-by-step how to fix as i don't know this particular model well, but i can tell you that you need to check your machines internal paper settings and most of all, make sure your "auto reduction" is set to "on".

How do I reprogram the fax cover sheet? I bought the fax machine from someone and I would like to put my name on the fax cover sheet. I have a sharp ux-355L


While holding down the start and stop button with two fingers,
pull the plug from the wall, wait ten seconds, plug back into wall while still holding the two buttons, after plugged in take fingers off that should reset the fax.

Fax feeder is pulling sheets through at the same time


Sounds like the separation pads in the paper tray are worn out. You can contact Brother and purchase the parts from them. It should be less than $10. as long as the paper is being pulled from the tray it sounds like the rollers are okay.

Pulling in multiple sheets


Needs a separator pad kit installed. Call a local tech to replace it, or if you are brave, you can google and find the parts and try yourself.

Fax machine pulls fax material into fax unevenly,so cannot fax...


If you take some alcohol, and put a couple of drops in the center if a piece of paper, then pass it through the feeder a couple of times, this should clean the feed and seperate tires, do this a couple of times, then try passing a couple of sheets to see if the problem has been eliminated.

Hope this helps.

Paper


most likely the seperation pad has worn out and possibly the roller parts sould be still avalible for this model. besides replaces the worn parts in the machine there is no quick fix besides cleaning the rollers and the seperation pads in the machine with a damp soapy cloth with like dish soap and wiping dry with another cloth it might work better for alittle longer or till you get replacement parts.

Its most likely to be the pickup roller and separation pad which will need replacing. as a short term fix try cleaning them with some isopropyl alcohol
