Auto feeder not copying the entire page

When copies are made through my auto feeder, only 2/3 of the page is being copied. I've tried resetting the copier by unplugging and replugging, the same problem persists. I have contacted Sharp and they tell me that the timer for the auto feeder is off and needs to be adjusted. Does anyone know how to adjust the timer on this copier?

Re: Auto feeder not copying the entire page

I assume the sheet is going through the feeder properly and not sticking?

you may need to go into the crop codes think it is the C button and the lighten button (2nd in from left) C first then lighten and repeat (C,L,C,L) - the lights should go out use the up down arrows to select the adjust code enter 50 and hit the start button then enter 16 adjust the value and then do a copy see if better or worse & adjust accordingly you are adjusting the SPF mode document off
center adjustment hope this helps P.S this is one of the cheapest sharp copiers! so don't expect too much - spend more!

Re: Auto feeder not copying the entire page

Does the same occur when the manual paper feed path is used? has this problem has just "popped up" without notice or was it a gradual event?

Copy Output all black

Janson; does this problem only occur if you're doing copying via the auto feeder, or also if you lay the paper in manually? The auto feeder uses a small glass opening to the front (or left) of the main flatbed scan area; if there is an issue with that area letting in light, an all black page would result. If you get all black with either type of scan, but regular printing still works, then you may have a dead scan element. Try scanning something to your computer or to an email account to see if normal scanning still works.

Auto feeder not working

Easy fix. Turn the machine off, on the back side of the document feeder is one beige cable. Unscrew the two screws and disconnect the cable. Turn the machine on with the feeder unplugged, let it come to ready. turn the machine off, connect the beige connector and turn the machine back on, It basically forgot it has a feeder and needs to plug and play without the feeder then to detect it when plugged back in,

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.
