Feeding more than one page at a time. How do I fix it?

1 Answer

Open the auto feeder, and inside you will see some rollers, and probably a rubber pad (on the top section ), the rubber pad (or separation pad) is responsible for keeping extra sheets from feeding you can rough this up gently with a little FINE grit sandpaper and/or just clean it with a moistened cloth (and dry) . It will be on a sort of pressure plate to apply pressure downward , you may try to apply a touch more pressure.

Multiple pages

Actually, when you get more than one paper feeding in at a time, it is almost always the separation pad being worn down. Go here to buy a new sep. pad and tell them Ken from National Cartridge Co. sent you there!

I have a panafax UF-755E will not accept multiple pages. I have to feed them one at a time? Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

Pana fax uses a thin peice of rubber to prevent multiple sheets from feeding these wear out.
You can try opening the part where you feed your origials and clean the rubber roller and pad with soap and water and a damp cloth
I remember having some luck flipping the ruber pad over
or you can order a replacement here....2nd item down

Faxes sent to other parties come out on two pages instead of one page

Clean / Change or Adjust (little lever) the seperation pad in the original feeder
Your documents are partially double feeding or steam feeding causing the machine to think the page is longer (81/2 x 14) instead of letter
The seperation is a small flap of rubber or a roller just clean with soap and water. and a damp cloth

Sharp UX-A1000 Fax Machine Document Feeding Trouble

Problem is most likely caused by a worn paper pick roller. It would be more expensive to repair this fax than to just replace it.

Sending a fax

Its the phone line causing the problem. Check the line via the handset, if you hear static sounds you have a bad line. Contact your phone provider and have it checked/fixed.

Also check the feeding of your original by using the copy function. It is possible that you have a feeding issue but I would bet on it being the line.
