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?

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!

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.

Vertical line down all copies coming from the top multipage feeder.

Please provide model number......however, if it's a "copier style" if you open the auto feeder, there should be a large contact glass and then a small "****" glass on the side that is used when using the auto feeder -clean this glass thoroughly (clean both while you're at it). If it's just a regular style fax machine, there will just be a small glass under the cover that needs to be cleaned.

Please let me know :)

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.
