Auto feeder misalignment

When copies are made through the auto feeder, only a portion of the page is being copied. I tried contacting Sharp copiers and technical support told me that the timer for the auto feeder is off and needs to be aigned. Does anyone know how to adjust the timer for the auto feeder?

Are you sure you don't have a static problem locking the paper to the glass.

Its a Sharp AL-1631. It'll copy from the auto feed

Check under the scanner, there is a scanner lock that you may have hit removing copies. Its most likely in the locked position and stopping scan.

Two lines, one on each side of copies made from feeder and faxes

Try cleaning the rollers inside the scanner including the glass inside and out with a soft damped cloth. Look also for a piece of paper, staple wires, paper clips or pencil lead jammed inside the rollers or somewhere in the corner.
Also, look for a foreign object or substance on the cold cathode tube light and clean it. Try also cleaning the mirror.

Big streaks on copies from Sharp SF-7800 copier, not fax machine.

You probably have some build up on the glass, which happens if you use the auto feeder most often. Alcohol type cleaner will remove with a very softcloth. One small dot will look like a long streak on a feeder, much like a streaked fax. The other issue is the photoreceptor belt has nicks or is dirty eaither way it needs to be replaced. Try the cleaning first and you may have to look hard for the small dots built up on the glass.

Stripe on copy

When you copy through the ADF, the machine scans over what is called the '**** glass'. If you lift the ADF you will see a thin strip of glass that runs front to rear, just to the side of the original glass.
You must clean the glass--- probably white-out, ink, etc... also look to see if a piece of paper, staple, etc.... is laying over the glass. When something is on the glass, the machine scans it down the page.

Single black line down center of newly copied page when using Auto feeder to copy

I had this same problem but after while it went away - so my solution would be to just keep using it, and perhaps it will solve itself.

Please Help -- Erroneous Lines from Auto-Paper-Feeder

Not familiar with this particular machine, but it sounds like one which uses a seperate scanner when drawing originals from the sheet feeder. Have a look to see if there's a glass strip to the side of the main copier face. If so, give that a careful clean. A.
