The fuser gears brake alot on these because of the heat. Open the flip down cover on the fuser when it is cooled off and try rotating the roller by hand look into the right side to see that the gear is rotating with the roler if not your sharp dealers should be able to get you the part for around $22 and they could put it in for an hour of labor.

SOURCE: sound during paper take up.
is it a clicking noise? If so, pull out the toner unit and the drum unit-is there any toner(and developer) spilled into the back of the machine where the toner unit came from? If so, this will have found its way into the feed clutches at the back causing them to jump gears and slip the drive....you can vacuum out the spill but it is a fairly involved job to clean out the clutches, let's just hope I'm wrong.Other than that more info is required to make a half reasonable guess at the problem

You have a door on the right side of the machine. in that door is a thin piece of wire mounted inside a bracket. The bracket is white and is at an angle in the door. Do you see that now?

Sounds like the drum surface has been damaged by some foreign object.
Typically when you get imaging errors such as lines from top to bottom of a page there is a permanent scratch on the drum surface. Pull the drum unit out of the printer/copier and carefully examine the drum surface, you most likely will see the damage quite easily. The only repair is to replace the drum unit with a new one. HOWEVER... be sure to clean the inside of the machine with a toner vacuum to remove any dirt, debris or paperclips, staples, etc that might have accidentally been introduced into the unit.
Hope this helps you out.
