Question about Office Equipment & Supplies

Open Question

I own a Sharp FO1660M Fax Machine,for a while now it provides copies which have words faint and a bit blurred. I have recently replaced the 2 film rolls but to no avail-its still the same. Apparently its only when used for coping and receiving incoming faxs this happens. I have been looking to get it serviced but have not managed to find a local agent, I think this will kill two birds with one stone, anything you can suggest would be helpful. Thanks Gary.

SOURCE: Error on Sharp fax UX-B700

I just came across this list of error codes (see link below). The specific ones you are referring to would probably indicate line noise, but could also be something as simple as a loose line cord. I've even seen this happen when a line cord has the retaining clip broken off so it makes and loses contact as the machine vibrates during use.

SOURCE: Brother Intellifax 770 fax machine failure to receive faxes

I get calls all the time about fax issues. I work for Comcast and have guided people to the right answers about third party devices. We use a digital connection. Analog is a dying medium. Most calls are concerning HP and Brother but I know others fax machines have had problems too. The new HP machines have a digital setting. HP is aware of digital issues and can help you. It is unfortunate that old fax machines are not digital but a new fax is inexpensive if you wish to buy one. Analog takes up too much space. An example: Six digital television channels can fit in the same space (bandwidth) as one analog. That is why the FCC mandated the change. The same goes for phone lines. I Google almost every problem concerning fax machines and if you go past all the upset comments you will get to the comments that offer remedy. I also wanted everyone to know that a second, no frills fax line from Comcast is very inexpensive and our way of offering a dedicated fax line intead of a distinctive ring fax option.

SOURCE: I have a Brother MFC 8220 incoming fax problem

Here are a few possibilities:
Does it still say "FAX" on the display? If it says "TEL" it won't answer the phone. Changing it is just a matter of pressing the MODE button, which cycles through four settings. FAX is for dedicated fax lines. If you share the line with a phone, check your manual for info about the other two settings.
In your menu settings is a place where you can set the number of rings before answering. If it's set too high, the sending machine will give up while your machine is still waiting for that 9th ring. I know you wrote that nobody's messed with it, but it's worth checking.
A glitch in the memory may be disabling reception. We can reset it in the Maintenance Mode:
From the Ready state, press these buttons in rapid succession:
Menu
* [the star on the phone dial]
2
8
6
4
If you did all that in under 2 seconds, the display will show MAINTENANCE. If you were too slow, you'll just be in the menus somewhere. Press Stop and try it again. You have to ignore all the error beeps while you do this; it's designed to be nearly impossible to do accidentally.
Once you have MAINTENANCE on the display, simply touch 91 and wait. The machine will clear all its memory, except your stored phone numbers. In a few seconds it will return to MAINTENANCE. Press 99 to exit the mode. The machine will go through it's entire start-up, as if you'd just plugged it in.
You don't need to use another fax for initial testing. Call it from another phone - even a cellphone - and see if it answers. If it squeals horribly in your ear, you've probably fixed it. Now try faxing to it.
If that function 91 didn't help, try something harsher. Go through the same routine above to enter Maintenance Mode, then, instead of touching 91, touch 01. That will clear all memory to the sate where it was when you first unboxed it.
If nothing above helps, it almost certainly needs a new Main Board. Replacing that on a non-warranty machine may not be worth it, but use Brother's website to find your nearest servicer and find out.

Replace the film, replace the paper(properly installed)and check all covers re-seat them, also check to make sure that the tab that goes into the machine for each cover is not broke if one is then copier thinks that cover is not closed. buy new film.

The machine gets abnormal rotation of the fixing film.
The probable fault with the part is mentioned bellow.

2- Dusty on sensor. clean it or replace it.
3-harness of the sensor-check continuity.
4-DC-CON pcb (rare).-Replace it.

Thanks.

Try just making a copy and see if you have the black lines on your copy (most fax machines have a basic copy function if it is you have dirty scan glass and on these small machines it is a real hassle to get too and clean Try Canned Air.

Fax problem


How is the copy when you try to just make a copy of something? If it copies good, then it might be the senders machine.
If when you make a copy, and the copy is blurred, then it is probably your ribbon/ink cartridge.

If it is the cartridge, just replace the cartridge, and you should be good to go.
Hope this solves your problem.
Good luck.

Sharp AL1631 Copier Intermittent Problem


There are several reasons this could be happening.

1. If you are not using Sharp Genuine products

2. The toner cartridge might not be fully seated

3. Voltage for the specified plug may be incorrect voltage or overloaded.

The faint clicking sound is most likely the machine stirring toner. I have seen where a sensor that detects toner level inside the developer unit get covered in a sludge, but if you just replaced the TD unit it should be okay.

Copying


You should be able to open the machine up easily and see the jam. It is a very small unit and no plece for the paper to hide. Does the unit use a film ribbon to print from. If so, remove the ribbon to see the jam.
