Sharp UX 112 FAX Mirrors

My incoming FAX Transmissions are fine.

My out-going FAXs are received with the left and right margins compromised abpout 1/2" to 3/4" in, and I am told the reflective mirror has accumulated dust on it along the edges. This also holds true if I put an original through under the "Copy" function, It is not abl;e to read the edges.

How do I cleans the dust off the appropriate surface?

    We have tried that several times BEFORE posting this question. I think we need to get to the underside of the scanner glass to clean it, even though it looks clean to the human eye. Is there a simple procedure for removing the scanner glass ?

    I finally bought myself a PDF copy of the Service Manual (98 pages) and carefully disassembled the Unit down to where I could remove the whole Optical Unit and clean the three (3) mirrors with de-natured alcohol. Loads of dust had accumulated. Now it's back to working just like new. I'd never have had the confidence to rip it apart without that Manual . . . . it was money well spent.

Try to clean the scanner glass and the upper white strip(the white plastic strip just above the scanner) with spiritus.

    I broke down and bought a PDF Service Manual (98 Pages) which gave me the confidence to disassemble the Unit down to the point where I could remove the Optical Unit and examine the Mirrors (3). There was an abundance of dust accumulated which I vacuumed off and then washed the mirrors with denatured alcohol. Upon re-assembly, it now works like new. We use the traditional FAX less and less; but it would be a shame to dispose of it simply for being dirty, when it has much useful life left in it. Without that Manual, I would never have had the confidence to rip that thing apart . . . . so it was money well spent.

Incoming fax shows one half of the page

The Thermal printhead is most likely burned out on one side and will need replaced. It could also be the printhead connector has worked loose and is only making partial contact. Remove the connector and reinstall. If that doesn't solve the problem then it would be cheaper to purchase another fax.
