Receiving faxes but a weird noise

Everytime we get a fax come through our machine makes a really loud noise. I think it has to do something with the rollers as the paper is coming through the machine. A couple of days ago we had a piece of paper stuck in the machine, when we pulled out the sheet of paper that is when we noticed the noise started.. We are able to send and receive faxes still. The noise is hard to decribe it kind of sounds like a dddddddd as the paper is coming through. What can I do to fix this or will I need someone to come look at?

SHARP UX-A1000 - sends all BLACK page (to all

Noisy line? is all that strikes true when you ensure me it makes great photocopys, but then you receive OK, very strange, All the mechanisms for doing a local copy is the same as sending a fax the difference is the conversion to phone noise so it has to be electronic, I;d guess lightning/power surge, cant think of much else....sorry

Recieving fax error

It could be a bad drum unit. If the drum doesnt turn smoothly it will make a clicking or grinding noise since it is gear driven. Take out the drum and turn the gear with your thumb. turm towards you. If difficult Thats it. It also could be a fuser gear. good luck Lawrence
